Kids: Why You No Dress Like Kids?
1. A BRIEF DISCLAIMER SO AS NOT TO COME OFF AS A HYPOCRITE.
I dressed like those girls on MTV of old.
I do remember what it’s like being a teenager and wanting to be fully grown, adult-like, and capable of catching a guy. It’s part of our feminine DNA to preen about in hopes of attracting a suitable male. Like other young women in high school back in the ’90s, I wore tight pants and short shirts, flashing my flat belly and hoping to acquire attention from guys both hot AND not.
But I was also needy and looking for someone to save me. I don’t necessarily think that’s the case of girls today. They aren’t looking for an emotional connection, for someone to take away their pain and make life liveable.
They are looking for sex, you guys.
Primal, wild, straight-up copulation. The feathers have fallen from the peacock. Girls are nekked and ready to lie down in the mud if that’s what it takes to fulfill their needs. Hormones gone wild, the message tattooed in their tramp-stamps reads: GIMME THAT.
2. GIRLS ARE SELLING THEMSELVES SHORT.
Well, it kind of makes a sick sense, given that there are now more girls being born than boys. Males have their pick of the litter, so females are strutting about shouting,
“PICK ME, PICK ME! ME LOVE YOU LONG TIME!”
The Census Bureau confirms that the number of male babies being born has been declining every year in the United States since 1990!
Plus, women are living longer and longer: 80 years, on average, versus only 74.2 for men.
So I have come to one ugly but irrefutable conclusion:
Nature is trying to kill us off!
You can read an excellent excerpt on this topic here.
Think I’m off my rocker? Another sexpert verifies this data by offering her two-cents on the topic of girls throwing themselves at boys:
Today, more men – who would never get laid in a sane society where women took such things as the future of their potential children seriously – are getting laid in droves, and with very little accountability. I’m telling you that I’m seeing men – who apparently are getting laid FOR FREE – who would have had a hard time finding someone who would do it for MONEY years ago.
Chloe, over at her blog The Chloe Chronicles, wrote this in her post entitled “Think our Hooking-Up Culture Isn’t Affecting You?” She is a labor and delivery RN who describes herself as working “at BREEDING GROUND ZERO”. While some comments in response to that post indicated that sex has always been pretty rampant, I think they failed to take into account that we’re discussing CHILDREN. Not just high schoolers, but middle schoolers. We’re talking about not being able to find a one-piece bathing suit for my 1st grader. We’re talking about t-shirts for toddlers that say things like “chick magnet” on them. We’re talking about setting up babies early on for prime fuck-ability. Not exactly the same thing as female adults regularly enjoying a night on the town in the backseat of some random guy’s car.
3. MOMS ARE SELLING THEIR DAUGHTERS SHORT
IN ORDER TO KEEP UP W/ THE JONESES.
I attended a sports banquet at my son’s high school earlier this year, and was shocked to see in person what he had been telling me all along:
The girls dress as skanks in seriously ridiculous fashion.
They are wearing slips with spaghetti straps that barely hold up under the weight of their gigantic boobies (and WTF is THAT all about? My tits STILL aren’t that big!); these tiny little bodices hug the butt cheek and leave a beaver-shot up front that is likely quite impressive for the guys. Their clunky high heals are the same as those worn by professional strippers.
[[[ I know this because:
(a) My hubz took me to Diamonds Cabaret when I turned 30, as a joke. It was funny; you probably had to be there.
(b) I visited Las Vegas on a work assignment, where the strippers were not strictly relegated to strip joints.
But I digress… ]]]
I asked my son, “Do their mothers know they’re dressed like this?”
He just laughed at me and answered, “Mom, who do you think is taking pictures?”
Sure enough, proud mommies filled the bleachers snapping photos, eager to post pics of their little hoe-bags directly on FaceBook as quickly as possible. I imagined I could hear them saying, “And here is little Rachel, all dressed up as a whore! I couldn’t be more proud! Just look at that twat shot! Gorgeous garden of love, isn’t it?”
I shouldn’t be shocked, I guess, as many of those mothers were dressed in similar fashion, tramp-stamps sticking out over g-string panties and jugs pouring out of their similarly low-cut blouses. I don’t understand the source of this pride. I can’t see my husband, my son, or me allowing our household baby-kins, the seven-year-old, to ever go out in public like that, much less encouraging such behavior. I thought I must have the last nice young man on the planet, but his friends all feel the same way about their ill-dressed female classmates. They think it’s grody, too.
Brene Brown, a renowned speaker on the topics of shame and vulnerability, promotes a book on her website which I intend to read so as to learn more about this disturbing trend:

If you’ve read this or similarly themed books or blog posts, I’d be mighty grateful for your input. What’s your take on not being able to find a one-piece bathing suit for my seven-year-old? What’s your stance on middle- and high school girls dressing like Victoria’s Secret models? How do you feel about sixth graders engaging in oral sex? And guys — be honest — are you enjoying the age of the tramp?
