KIDDIE-PORN CHIC: BEYONCE'S TINY HO'S
nypost.com ^ | May 14, 2008 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 05/14/2008 10:49:49 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

IF you thought the soft-porn image of Disney teen queen Miley Cyrus - wearing nothing but ruby-stained lips and a bedsheet - in Vanity Fair magazine was disturbing, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Pop diva Beyonce Knowles, 27, and her fashion-designer mother have launched a girls' clothing line that makes Miley's bare-backed glam session look like a Shirley Temple photo shoot.

The Knowles' family business, "House of Dereon," recently published ads for its "Dereon Girls Collection" with young models who look no older than my second-grade daughter. They are seductively posed and tarted up, JonBenet Ramsey-style, with lipstick, blush and face powder.

Draped in bling, several girls sport leather jackets and studded accessories.

One child wears sparkly, high heels (more pint-size Pussycat Doll than Dorothy from "The Wizard of Oz") and another slouches, gangsta gal-style, with a neon-pink boa, leopard-skin fedora and stilettos.

. . and we wonder why so many little girls (and boys) are being snatched off the streets by perverts . . and why in the world has it gotten so much worse than it was way back in the good old days when we could play on the streets and our parents didn’t have to worry about us.

Looks more like little girls playing dress-up.

But as a child growing up in the 70’s, my parents put me in stuff that was much, much worse.

It all looks horrifying, but what’s new? Little girls have been dressed like prostitots by their parents for years so this does not shock me.

I agree. I’m not seeing anything there that would be considered all that inappropriate for kids.

Yes, all second graders should be sporting stripper pumps and ghetto bling. As if this woman hasn’t made enough money already. Nice one Beyonce. I’m sure you’ve included a line of tasteful thongs to go with these as well.

"...back in the good old days when we could play on the streets and our parents didn’t have to worry about us.

What days were those? I'm of the opinion that the numbers were actually worse but were under reported. In this day of instant information and Amber alerts our society is accutely aware of the dangers. I believe that criminals know that their actions are under much closer scrutiny these days and as a result are committing fewer of these types of crimes. If you watch the interviews of serial killers who hunted in the 70's you'll hear horror stories about hundreds and hundreds of hitchhiker abductions and murder that simply went unreported. Local police back in 'the good old days' were less likely to coordinate with State and Federal law enforcement and would not even open an investigation unless the person had been missing for several days. Missing person cases might make the local papers but rarely got any attention on a larger scale unless the parents or family took matters into their own hands.

At least they’re covered. Parents who fork over big bucks for this garbage and let their kids go to school wearing it need their heads examined, but as tasteless children’s clothing goes, this is mild. My office is in the heart of the NYC tourist district and I see much worse on the streets here. Last summer I saw a girl about 8-9 years old in low cut leopard-skin lycra pants, a halter top, high heels, and lipstick, apparently out shopping and sightseeing with her parents. And now warm weather is back again . . .

Perhaps Miss Malkin would be more happy with a line of miniature burkas, or maybe burlap sacks.

Michelle needs to learn not to use an apostrophe to pluralize. Ho is what? Ho owns what? If you’re not trying to convey either of these ideas, no apostrophe.

Those outfits don’t look so raunchy. There could be more objectionable items in the clothing line that we haven’t seen yet. That stuff looks EXPENSIVE.

Please see the photo array in #1. Those are tiny little girls wearing stripper boots. Michelle Malkin in not being a priss, she is the mother of two daughters who are going to have to face things like this...kiddie porn disguised as fashion.

Are either of you mothers with small daughters who will come running into the kitchen to show you this clothing in a magazine and say, “Mommy, can I get that? I like that”?

Oh, about 40 years ago. I remember being able to walk downtown by myself to see a movie when I was 12. Can't do that now, even as an adult.

As the mother of a five year old girl, I have to say -- I find this stuff is tacky and ugly more than sexually innapropriate.

My main concern, regarding the heels, is that they're awfully hard to walk in. Lots of sprained ankles, leg injuries. Stilettos are dangerous enough for adult feet, let alone growing kid feet. But honestly, I really doubt they'll be big sellers.

Maybe I've just given up at this point, but at least they're covered up. I've seen kids as young as this in belly shirts and short shorts. Sad.

I have a seven year old daughter and I'm so funny about stuff like that, I won't allow her to have "Bratz" dolls.

But this looks like much ado about nothing.

I'm a father. But I'd just say... No.

And that's all I've got to say about that!

The 50s and most of the 60s were decidedly safer. Kids left the house unchaperoned and stayed out all day long. I never knew of a single incident where any kid in town was taken or harmed. I know of more than a few in the past twenty years.

A lot of folks who weren't there just can't accept that there were really was a 'good old days'.

I am not a mother, as I am a man. I have two children, both boys, 4 and 1.

But on the first picture post, the kids in that ad are wearing far more clothes than 95% of the ads for kids clothes I see in magazines, catalogs, and the ads stuffed in the Sunday paper. Other than their hands and face, you can't see any skin.

Kiddie porn? Hardly.

I’m more concerned about the slippery-slope aspect of it than anything else. These clothes don’t look all that bad, but once they become the acceptable norm, the push will be on to make them racier and more revealing.

You know, if you don’t have a problem with little girls dressed up like miniature whores on a pedophile catwalk, might I suggest you go down your moral checklist again. You ain’t hittin’ on all cylinders if something like this doesn’t bother you or suggesting that they go the other extreme as well and put them in ankle swimsuits. You appear to not have a balance. Good day to you.

The kids are dressed ghetto, but they aren’t dressed like whores.

Whores are known to wear catholic schoolgirl uniforms, should we admonish parents for letting their little girls go to Catholic School?

How about we dress them in modest clothes and stop trying to sexualize them?

They’re children, for God’s sake. Let them enjoy childhood while they have it and stop trying to dress them as trashy adults.

Jeezus.

Perverts are going to get turned on by kids regardless of what they are wearing.

If you see a bunch of mini-hookers in that picture, that’s your problem.

My original post dealt with the next logical steps in this type of dress - no where did I say that I saw 'mini-hookers'. I specifically noted that I didn't think these clothes looked all that bad. I was more concerned with the progression to sluttier clothing that would inevitably happen if this kind of dress becomes widely accepted for children.

And as a Parent of a 3 year-old girl, I do consider it my problem, thank-you very much.

There are so many things wrong with these outfits that it is hard to list. I think they are tacky, gaudy, uncomfortable and inapproproiate for toddlers/young girls and yes, make them look like tarts, but not necessarily skimpy. However, put a full body leotard on a woman and although it doesn’t show a lot of skin, it is not appropriate for daywear to the office or a PTA meeting.

Preteens with their butts hanging out of their jeans (thong on display) and flabby bellies are just as bad in my opinion, although their parents are not dressing them, for the most part. My concern is that parents are choosing to dress their very small children as hip-hop-gangster girls with attitude.
