OK like the rest of you i watched the video of seven year old girls doing a dance routine to single girls. And to me it was one of the most horrifying things i have seen this week. Not that the whole thing was horrific. Minus the outfits and some of the more overtly sexual moves it could have been entertaining in a good way.
Havent seen it? You let me know what you think, this is not sparkle motion:
Instead 1/2 naked little girls rotating their hips sexually for all the world to see is what it was, and it makes me wonder what kind of gross parenting would let that happen?
I’m in a bubble of my own world the majority of the time admittedly, but in 2010 is our society so bastardized that these sort of displays truly acceptable?
I guess my youth (growing up in the 70’s) and being a kid is a far cry from what i imagine growing up today is like. I feel even more blessed being able to have been given the opportunity to be a normal kid.
Never having competed in any sort of pageantry, ever knowing what a diet was, and using my imagination instead of having TV and the Internet to influence my thought process and personality.
I know there are good parents out there hopefully more than all the crap ones i see everyday.
And to all you girls out there, you are fantastic, beautiful and amazing just who you are.
I hope your idols are ones who deserve you affections.
