The Commercial Sexualisation Of Children I The Feed:

Notice the images at the very beginning and just how many of them are women and how many are men. They then go into a cover of an Australian family magazine. I agree that this is too sexualized – the bed head, the makeup, and the pose. I think people in the advertising world are too exposed to it constantly to see it for what it is. However, I don’t think kids in bikinis are too sexy in themselves. What do you think?
