Tinkerbell! <img alt="mad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif"><br><br>
I'm really disgusted by the way that Disney has sexed up Tinkerbell. The come hither smiles, the little shrugs, the extra oomph to her curves. Sickening. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

HEre's my thought: why do we mind sexualization of , well of anything?<br><br>
Are we not sexual beings? Do our children not come from more or less, a version of the sex act?<br><br>
Are they not also headed for much the same future as has wrought humanity on the planet?<br><br>
So what's the big deal?

when my 5 yr old daughter wants to act sexually like Tinkerbell, britney Spears, or whoever the Hell else....That is when she gets locked in her room til she is 30!<br><br><br>
I hear that is what good parents do <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

We're talking about little girls. They should be <i>little girls</i> There's a difference between humans being sexual creatures and cartoon characters being slutted up .

Thank goodness my 15 year old daughter is modest. She thinks my yoga tops show too much skin. Please, let her remain this way.

Why do toddlers need "cutie" plastered on their diaper clad butt? And pre-schoolers wearing belly shirts? I used to like going clothes shopping for my neice--buying pink frilly stuff--but gave up. I wasn't going to buy stuff that made her look like a hooker!

Important to note: little girls are half the equation in the 'let's play doctor' category.<br><br>
They're these beginner Mother Earth types, wanting to know all the where's and wherefores of origins, where do babies come from and all things nature and natural and I'll show you mine if you show me yours.<br><br>
You can't really put the genie back in the bottle.

I used to care about a lot about holding back the tide in regards to cultural pre-maturity and the trappings that make it appear to happen, and it's not that I've changed my mind so much as I've realized, it doesn't make any difference. They go through so many changes by the time they are grown young women, so many of those seemingly important early parenting decisions don't make any difference at all.

I thought tinkerbell was modelled after Marilyn Monroe? I thought she was always a sexpot.<br><br>
Not that I approve.

Right now being pregnant with my oldest being 5 has opened up SO many more questions for us about the beginnings of life. It was hard to figure out what was appropriate to tell her.<br><br>
She knows her half of the equation. She is very proud to be the mommy to 2 million eggs. She didn't ask about the daddy part so we haven't touched that yet.<br><br>
Breastfeeding all of my kids has helped to down play some of the sexualization of breasts as well. They know they are for food and it doesn't bother them when the 18 month old yells "I want BOOB!".
