Three: I have a problem with the Jours Après Lunes (days after moons) collection campaign that shows prepubescent girls in lingerie, with big hair and makeup, sitting in poses that suggest, oh let's just say it -- a recent sexual encounter or a possibility of one.
The company has defended itself saying that they are a family brand and that there are no vulgar connotations, the children are professional models, "not Lolitas who have stolen women's clothing."
Additionally, it was said that the panties are opaque and there are no bras in the collection (presumably, the featured striped bikini top or a satin-and-black-thing-that-is-not-a-bra are socks). Other defenders of the company have blamed the outrage on North American prudishness. Which is also what seemed to be at fault recently when people got upset over Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau, a 10-year-old who posed for the French Vogue looking like a child version of Brigitte Bardot in most of the photos.
I don't have a daughter, but I used to be a little girl and I remember how confusing sexuality was, for example, my lack of understanding between the power of clothing as signifier (of sex) and the people (men) who responded. Because clothing is not just clothing -- we, animals who dress -- use it to tell the world certain things about ourselves. A guy in a colourful Etro shirt is a peacock with his tail in full jordan for sale spread. A grown woman in a Catholic school girl outfit is suggesting perversity (through the uniform's connotation combined with the woman's age). A 12-year-old girl with big teased-up hair in a clothing ad, wearing a satin not-a-bra and panties is suggesting that she's playing a woman, someone ready to have sex.
Jours Après Lunes defended itself by saying that the clothing is not "stolen women's clothing" and further on that it was designed, specifically to suggest the idea of dress up. What a brilliant idea -- the girls don't have to raid their mother's closets because now they have their own suppliers of almost same kind of clothing but in the right sizes. Except that when little girls dress up to be like mom or a lady on TV they do it precisely because it's part of a play and after the playing is done they get to put away mom's lacy bra stuffed with Kleenex and put on their own dresses. If they end up wearing women's clothes every day what exactly are they saying?
When you make the grown-up-like clothing available and acceptable, the kids will wear jordan 11 bred it -- especially if moms (who else?) buy it. Why not? Mommy has a frilly tank top that shows off her chest, so why shouldn't her daughter have one, especially one produced by a pretty French company named days after moons (or should it be "the morning after"?). And the little girl will put on a string bikini not understanding at all what the string is meant to suggest, not understanding that it's a signifier. When I wear a string bikini I am more than aware that it signals the possibility of the string being pulled, the idea that I can just loosen my clothes like that. If I had a daughter I would not like anyone to think that when looking at her.
But as I said, I don't have a daughter but I have pictures of myself as a kid wearing a grown-up corset. My friend A. stole it from her grandmother's closet; it was a beautiful thing supported by metal stays and heavy silk exquisitely stitched together. It was meant for a much smaller grown-up person, but, as we discovered, it fit an 11-year-old. Our idea of sex was that you kissed a man who should probably look a little bit like Michael Jackson, whom we both adored.
We knew about intercourse and we understood that the corset was sexy but how the two were related was a mystery. We took photos of each other wearing the corset, even striking a couple of what we thought were sexy poses. We got the photos developed later and I haven't looked at them for many years, slightly worried that I committed a minor crime, had definitely done something troubling. I also knew that I meant something but I didn't know what I meant. This was not in North America, the land of prudishness, but it still seemed like a bad idea.
And then I read Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita when I shop celine bag was Lolita's age, not understanding any of it but I heard that it was about a relationship between a grown man and a very young girl and that there was mulberry outlet sex in the book. celine sale Plus the book was kind of a scandal. I read the words and sentences and I saw page numbers. I understood what they were but the meaning escaped me. So I read the annotations explaining the symbolism, imagery and allegory. Still clueless. I thought I even found the sex parts but I wasn't sure. All I knew was that there was something huge eluding me, some kind of a thrilling, dangerous thing that I couldn't see because despite my eagerness to grow up I was too young, too stupid, too dependent on grown ups to explain things to me and, hopefully, lead me in the right direction.
The responses here make me wonder how many actually bothered to look at the photos before judging this company. Most people consider me overly modest, and i saw nothing sexually suggestive here, in the clothing or the poses. I saw pretty briefs with matching cami tops in girly colours. isabel marant sneaker sale The two-piece swimsuit does not look like a bra, although i don't see what would be wrong if it were one since most girls start wearing them by age 11. I just cannot fathom how anyone could look at these little girls and think isabel marant sale there is anything provocative about them. Which i don't like either, but that's another topic.
I agree. Sexuality is a beautiful, natural part of who we are, and as children grow up, they begin to understand their sexuality in new and different ways. Trying to force adult sexuality on children is confusing to them. Young girls may ask for this lingerie because it's available and it looks like something that their mom/caregiver owns. Or maybe it just looks like something they've seen women wearing and they think it'll air max 97 make them feel grown up. It's the job of the adults in the child's life to help them learn to approach their sexuality in a positive, age appropriate way. That may mean saying no to all kinds of nonsense that our commercial culture says is okay. So, come on, parents and caregivers, use your common sense on these issues. I really didn't see anything suggestive of sex. I did see some girls that looked as though they were playing dress up.
I'm not sure what the solution or proper response is. The one thing I am always greatful for is that at every age until I became an adult and could buy my own clothes was that I was always dressed appropriately at every age. I remember being 11 or 12 and wanted the more sophisticated silk navy blue dress that was in the junior's department, I remember my mom having a painful and confused look on her face which I did not understand. That I now know is why in the *ell is this dress being sold in the junior's department? To appease me we took that dress and the white Gunne Sax into the dressing room, the navy blue did not fit because I could not fill it out and so the Gunne Sax dress won. I was a sad little girl that day, but over the course of next year while I could still wear it, I started to love that dress and to this day it is my favorite dress, a air jordans for sale beautiful white cotton and lace dress perfect for the pre-teen that I was. So I say thanks to my mom who is no longer here, I truly appreciate the fact that you always made sure I was dressed correctly for my age no matter how much I complained.
Since Brooke Shields (no relation!) was cast for Pretty Baby, the line between childhood and what was nubile was changed forever. Pretty Baby was viewed by people who never would have bothered with Lolita, in print or on film. I see this as a symptom of a deeper ill, Beauty obsessed, youth worshiping, style over substance thinking leads you to the impossible standard. Little girls set the mark at over the hill by 12. And celine tote bag that is truly twisted.
1. The ability to play a female character (And Lara Croft doesn't count!)
There's a big difference in playing "dress up" when you're a little girl, putting on mommy's clothes/shoes/makeup in the family home for the sheer fun and frivolity of it, and in adorning prepubescent girls in skin tight lingerie or what have you, in a PRINT AD. BIG difference. mulberry outlet store IMPO there is little difference between the latter and many of these toddler "beauty pageants" where the children as young as 2 or 3 are dressed in (for lack of a better word) "vamp" type outfits and told to go shake their thangs on stage while vapid mommy waits in anticipation of the Grand Supreme Crowning. They are NOT the same as sweet snapshots taken by parents after their daughter snuck into mommy's closet and vanity table. Again, just my personal opinion.
