Yeah!

the most interesting part: the mom doesn't ask her daughter what is she wearing. A mom buying her 10 y.o. daughter a thong???

OMG! That's just unbelievable. The sexualizing of children just goes too damn far.

I suppose the question I have to ask myself is why did I open this thread knowing what the subject was about Shocked

I suppose that would give the dirty old men something more to look at Confused In a way, creepy... Now an 18yy wearing a thing Twisted Evil much better image

This reminds me of a sad truth.

Childhood seems to have died, children are being made to grow up too quickly by people who want t make them little adults. I think that teenaged and younger girls should not be wearing sexually provocative clothing.

When the subject said 'thongs' I thought you were referring to the shoes. As for the underwear, who cares as long as they stay under the clothes?

great idea, let's give peadophiles a little treat this christmas Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

what the hell is the mother thinking allowing her girl to go around in a thong? thongs are, as the article states, meant to be sexy, why the hell would a ten year old wear a thing if she wasn't trying to become sexually active? anyonewondered if an adult has a part in this?

as for argos and their padded bras, i think they should remove themor get shut down for good. kids are kids, there should be laws against this!

Only way to know is if you pull down their pants or lift up their dress or if they have on pants that shows their underwear through the fabric.


a thong would be easily visible if the girls played 'handstand' as the article says, point is the girls want to pretend they're grown up without accepting what it means. why else would a girl wear underwear meant to make them more attractive?

if a young girl is wearing something such as a thong she'll want to express it, such as pulling her skirt down to show the bare skin to entice whoever might be looking. why give a young girl a padded bra? to make her look like she has breasts, in other words more grown up than she is, therfore at more risk from others.

Actually, some people wear what we used to call low-rider jeans back in the 70's and you can see the top of the thong - I've seen it on women in their early 20's at work in the past. I told one of them, a buddy, and she saw nothing wrong with it - it seems to be an intentional display. And yeah, a 10-year-old might well engage in some kind of play that involves being upside-down or she could fall on the ground - lets hope she isn't wearing a skirt. The mother either is a fool or is abdicating her role as parent for a role as friend IMO.

Children wearing age approriate clothing is important but its got not much to do with paedophilia. They dont care what they wearing. They want the child and they take thier clothes off anyway and i know because i am studying criminology at the moment.

Agreed. There's a rush to grow up, but at the same time to not grow up, only in the sexual aspect of kids. Because at the same time the media is showing tits at 4pm, they are not maturing enough even if they are no longer teens, seeing how the society are dumbing them down by not putting responsibilities in them, and not allowing them to grow:

I thought the same thing and wondered what the big deal was. I practically lived in those rubber sandals as a child.

The thong underwear? Isn't that really uncomfortable to wear? It would drive me crazy to wear uncomfortable underwear.

When I was a child back in the 50s it was fashionable to dress little girls in panties with rows of colored ruffles on the part one sits.
At the time I agreed with my mother that it looked cute but it was very uncomfortable to wear if one had to sit for any length of time.

Yes, it is really uncomfortable to wear.I actually bought a thong to see what the deal is. It's awful. all it is is a tiny string that continually gives you a wedgie. and when you sit down the string goes taut. it's terrible. I wore it out, and had a horrible time because i was in such discomfort.

Earlier this year, department store Bhs withdrew its Little Miss Naughty range of padded bras and knickers for pre-teen girls.
Um...ew? it's called little miss naughty? I see nothing wrong with padded bras for little girls who have developing breasts. any woman knwos what it's like to develop breasts. For a long time they are pointy, and that can be very embarrassing. I remember that very clearly. I would wear tighter training bras so my breasts would look flatter rather than pointy. I sure wish i'd had a padded one. But when it's called "little miss naughty" Thats sexualizing children, and it's sick and wrong.
