And those skanky women dress inappropriately for work.
Well, I’m sorry, but it’s true. I’m sure Dana agrees with me — just ask her. (And we’re not the only ones.) Neither of us coined the term "prostitot" (though we’ve both used it) but I for one sincerely wish I had. No wonder young women are so utterly baffled about what to wear to the office these days. From early childhood their parents are dressing them like little whorelets. Of course they’re confused.
Personally, I think the sexualization of children is playing a big factor in the rise of teen and tween sexual activity, inappropriate relationships between students and teachers (in middle schools, high schools, and colleges), and inappropriate office relationships. I mean, duh. When you’re giving your 12-year-old a glittery baby tee emblazoned with "Boys Are Stupid" or "Your Boyfriend Thinks I’m Hot," you’re not empowering her — you’re teaching her that she’s (a) a billboard and (b) supposed to put people down to feel better about herself. You’re also teaching her that glitter and sex are attractive.
When you put a string bikini on your 8-year-old or a tube top and miniskirt on your toddler, when you teach her to dress provacatively and use her body to get what she wants, you’re training her to be a skank for life — and it is going to her her in the long run.
What do you think?
