Liz Hurley accused of sexualizing youngsters with new bikini line

THIS really gets my blood boiling. 

But.  I'm open to hearing different opinions.  What do you think?

Go HERE and checkout the swimwear lines for kids--for a first hand account.  They have two age groups--under 8 and 8-13.  I am sure this is not the ONLY line of swimwear like this out there for teens and I'm not trying to demonize Elizabeth Hurley.  I just find so many things wrong and disturbing with these images.  I'll express my feelings below soon.

  1. I'm livid!!!!!! It's sexualizing children, as if there isn't enough out there in the world to make children feel like they need to grow up faster. It's up to mothers and fathers aka the money holders to make these choices for their children. Are you going to let your child BE a child? Or expose them and dress them in clothes that make them look like a beauty pageant contestant?

  2. I don't think it's a huge deal, honestly. There are 1 or 2 that I found distasteful/overtly sexual, and most of the girls were posed in pretty neutral positions.

  3. I hate babies, i.e. anyone under 16, in bikinis. I think it completely sexualizes them and sends the wrong message to them and others.

  4. The thing I tried to remember when my children were young was that, even if I thought they looked cute and innocent while showing skin, the world is full of perverts who look at the same image as the equivalent of a Victoria's Secret spread. And the thought of someone looking at my child that way creeps me out. My girls were comfortable with modesty later because it was the only option offered when they were young.

  5. My two year old daughter has a rainbow-stripe two-piece (I don't know if you'd call it a bikini, exactly. It shows about two inches of belly) and I don't think there's an immodest thing about it. But I have my lines that I draw, and I wouldn't put her in leopard print (mostly because I think it's ugly), and other people have theirs, and that's fine.

  6. You people are idiots you know, take better care and keep a closer watch on your children and the clothes they wear won't be an issue. Basically do your jobs as parents and there is no problems.... These outfits are nothing compared to the thongs and such made available in small children's sizes nowadays and t-shirts with such messages as " Whore in training" for around age 12, THOSE are the things you whinging people should be complaining about.
