“The Puritans vs. The Prostitots”

This blogger is blogging for RAINN this month, so you should check it out.  Excellent commentary on double standards in America.  And the early sexualizing of children is why I die a little inside when adults say of babies “Aw, look at the little flirt” about a child who’s just being friendly–smiling, cooing, batting eyelashes, etc–or says to a five year old boy “Aw, you have a little girlfriend” about his female playmate.  If someone wants to say that kind of thing, fine, but they shouldn’t assign adult behaviors to children’s actions and then bitch about how kids grow up too fast.  Where do these people think the kids are *learning* that kind of thing?  It can’t all be blamed on the media.
