An Australian magazine is being investigated after photographing a 16-year-old girl topless in two fashion shoots.

Russh Australia, a lifestyle and fashion magazine, hired Zippora Seven for a provocative 18-page editorial fashion spread alongside 16-year-old male model Levi Clarke.

I report. You decide. If the question is is a teen model being represtented in an inappropriate manner you need some ferom of reference.

For the record, I selected the mildest version of one of the pictures. And haven't given the link to the full set

Where are the parents?

Where is the law enforcement?

Where is the outcry?

Where is the morals of the young person herself?

When will women stop selling themselves out?

It’s a never ending story.

I could care less because one day this young woman will look at herself and those photos. She will see how cheap the dark eye make up made her look. She will see herself and wonder whatever made her do what she did? Money? Men? Whatever it is...she will be sorry. Not to mention if she ever has a family...won’t that be super for her children to see their mother plastered all over in mags with nude photos. Good Lord ...when does money and fame EVER take a back seat to decency and self respect?

“Just seems a little sleazy to me.”

Please don’t misunderstand me, I totally agree with you. She’s a beautiful girl. And that means Modern culture demands she has to show everyone her naked body. We’re supposed to forget she’s a child because its not about her. Its about all those adults who want to see naked children.

The pornification of the world is proceeding and anyone questioning it will be sent to reeducation (aka work) camps soon.

Naked pics ruled okay

Official: Board rules topless 16-year-olds not offensive

AUSTRALIA'S literature classification has given the green light for photographers to take pictures of naked under-age models after backing down on an investigation into a fashion magazine.

Last week, the Classification Board said it was investigating Russh Australia for featuring a 16-year-old girl topless in two different fashion shoots.

But of course. Today its a 16 year old and in a few years it will be a 12 year old. All for art and fashion of course.

Anything beautiful must be consumed. Anything decent must be subverted.

Last time I saw a face like that it had a hook in its mouth. What’s her age in “trout years” ?

are you following the posts?

I disagree with the poster that posted it.
I do not think we need to see a topless 16 year old girl.

This same crap started in America when Brooke Shields was even younger saying “Nothing gets between me and my Calvins”. Her mom pushed that too.It was pretty shocking then.They continue to “numbdown” the culture.

Didn't Brooke Shields do a nude scene as a 12 year old in "Pretty Baby?" and later in "Blue Lagoon?" Not to say this is right, but it certainly isn't new, and suggests this not not a trend toward anything.

wow, Kalifornia’s 25% porn tax doesn’t have chance now....the Kali porn industry will just move to OZ! (so instead of Kalifornia helping the budget by $700mil, they’re gonna chase another entire industry out of the state to the tune of $4Bil.) /tax math

The Brooke Shields movement was simply a trial. The backlash meant they had to table their efforts. Sounds conspiratorial but the founders of NAMBLA have published their agenda and are working towards acceptance of their view. It worked for the gays and they are using the same techniques.

The Literature Classification Board says it's not porn. And they see a lot more porn than I do.

actually this is going back to the 1980’s when there was similar scandal with the fashion designers using underage models dressed “mature” to sell product.

This is NOT new.

This is NOT a recent development.

This is just the fashion designers being exposed again.

>>so what’s the point in posting some of the pictures?>>

Agreed. We don’t need to be sensationalized, thank you. I see enough flesh walking down the street on an 80-degree day to make me question my vows. Please don’t post pics like this in the future.

To the few feminist pigs on FR who feel it’s a man’s job to control his animal urge, and not the woman’s responsibility to control what she advertises, you are idiots.

Yeah, and some scholar society says that changing the Bible doesn’t change the meaning. What a bunch of PC crap.

apparently the mods think that the comments on the kennedy threads are far more important than a mildly cleaned up topless shot of a 16 year old....go figure.

I’m disappointed they are still here several hours later

Maybe so, but it was 30 years ago. Just saying...
