Have you heard of Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau? She’s the latest hot young thing in fashion.
Her fashion spreads include wearing five-inch Christian Louboutin heels. Applying vampy purple lipstick. Walking the runway in nothing but a necklace.
Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau is only 10. So why is she being treated like an adult model? Are adults buying these products to look 10? Or are they buying these products for their 10-year-old daughters, who want to look 25?
Oh, hell no, would I let my little girl do this. I mean, seriously. It’s like begging child molesters to whack off to pictures of your child.
There’s nothing wrong with beauty. There’s nothing wrong with sexy. But everything has a time and place, and that time and place is not preteen.
Parents, please: Stop the madness. Don’t buy that push-up bra for your 7-year-old. Take a pass on that anti-aging cream for your tween. Save the lipstick and heels for dress-up and playtime. This stuff was made for attracting the sort of attention that children and tweens are not able to handle.
And if you happen to come across a magazine with a 10-year-old child wearing a sexy pout and five-inch heels, for chrissake, DON’T BUY IT.
I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on this! Please leave a comment.
