Now that got your attention, huh? Are we too focused on it? I just went birthday shopping for my niece. She'll be 14 in April. I know she needs clothes, so that was my focus. I had two types to choose from: Matronly and not-letting-my-14-year-old-niece-near-them clothes. There were the built-in bra shirts designed to "push-up" and pop out. There were the shirts designed to fit as tightly as possible (the small looked like doll clothes). There were the shirt that hit at about the bottom of the ribcage. My least favorite were the shirts with "I'm kissable" or "flirt" on the front. Keep in mind, these are Junior Sizes, designed to fit young girls who have not yet developed hips or breasts. WHY do they need clothes like that? Don't even get me started on the jeans (as Go covered earlier this week!)
There were some tamer t-shirts, but my niece would never hear of wearing anything that her aunt approved of. I'm worried about her b/c at 14, she is very well developed. Her breasts have surpassed mine, and I'm a DD. She wears the clothes that her size 5 friends look good in, and the boys notice. She doesn't mind if her behind is peeking out when she bends over in jeans. She's been caught at boys' houses without permission a few times.
Are we too focused on sex? Is it tv? Is it magazines? Is it b/c we're just more open now?
Can we do anything about it?
