For The Love Of God, Cover Them Up!!

Mothers, fathers for the love of god please stop letting your preteen daughters dress like prostitutes!!  FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE!!!!!  About a month ago I happened to see a girl that couldn’t have been a day over 12 walking through a store with her mother.  The girl seemed to be catching the attention of everyone that walked passed her.  Unfortunately, it was for all the wrong reasons.  For the life of me I can’t recall what the young girl was wearing from the waist up, but I will never forget what she was wearing from the waist down.  She had on these shorts that were skin tight and pretty much exposed the lower half of her butt.  Seriously, what kind of a parent lets their daughter wear something like that?

I will be the first person to say that what a person wears shouldn’t dictate what you think of them, but what kind of a message do you want to send out having your 12 year old daughter walk around with her ass hanging out like that?  That mother and others like her should be flat out ashamed of themselves.  I mean, whatever happened to girls wearing sweet sundresses with pigtails and stockings?  The age of innocence seems to be gone and the birth of, “hey look at my ass” is taking its place. I for one and very scared to see where we will be in 10 years.

Should children be forced cover up from head to toe?  Don’t be ridiculous!  You all know what I am talking about here and you all know there is a line between showing a little skin and showing a lot of ass.  There has to be a line drawn somewhere.  I know this generations kids are growing up faster than my generation did but that doesn’t mean that they need to show their no-no’s off to everyone.

  1. more of the “toddlers and tiaras” mindset of what seems to be moms who need to “live” through their daughters.

  2. hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. Not sure if you saw my Street Bums section, but I am amused and amazed that after a quick look around yours, we seem to have a couple of the same subject matters. And here the I was thinking the crap in my head original 🙂

    Where I work I wait on a lot of kids and their parents. Half the time we can’t tell if they’re kids dressed slutty or very short prostitutes. Just the other day I waited on a girl who couldn’t be older than seven, and she had so much makeup on that her face looked like a clowns. And her mother just stood there saying how grown up she looked.

  4. It’s extremely sad, and pretty scary that 15 year olds look older than me..and I’m 23.
    This post is so true..I see little girls dressed like this on a daily basis and I’m always saying what kind of parent would let their child leave the house like that?!

  5. andreamaser says:

    Thanks for checking out my blog. I really enjoyed yours. Keep it up :)))

  6. Consider that the child is changing her clothes after she leaves the house..we did it back in the 80s.

    i totally agree. am afraid the generation 90s was still conservative no matter how some rock & roll bands deflowered mtv videos.. compared to the present generation, my oh my blame it on lady gaga?

    btw, Thank Ye for liking my poems 🙂

    It’s not quite as bad, but a few weeks ago I saw a guy in his mid-to-late twenties walking around with the waistband of his pants below his ass. Fortunately he had underwear on but I had to wonder.

    Similarly, I have to roll my eyes at some of the fashion industry’s extremes:

    or when I read this kind of story:

    Almost makes me see the wisdom of burqas.

    I TOTALLY AGREE! It’s just sad that kids these days don’t look like kids anymore 😦

  11. Had a fight with a parent of a 7 year old in my school. This child was wearing a THONG, and the “whale tail” was showing over the back of the waist band of her pants! Bad enough that she thinks it’s appropriate for her 7 year old to worry about visible panty lines, but to show everyone by wearing low rise pants was just more than I could take.

  12. […] that has listened to me “Talk Shit” for the last few months knows how I feel about young girls dressing in scantly clad attire. Parents like Honey Boo Boo’s…you know what, FUCK THAT!  Her name is Alana! Her […]

  13. Salutations and dankie for giving my blog the once-over. Have to say, that these days kids are not kids for as long as they should be. I am 1 of 3 sisters, of which the youngest just used to love the ‘rave’ seen (good ol’ 90’s). And my dad always used to do an ‘inspection’ before she left the house on one of her ‘expeditions’. There was this pair of faux fur, zebra printed short shorts that she always tried her luck with. And he would not give in. Told the that if she wore out, she would get ‘winter lips.’ He was not referring to the lips on her face.

  14. HAH! Thanks for checking out my blog. I have to say, I have been ranting about this since day one in Spain. I know that girls all over like to dress scanalously, but I feel like its worse here. I literally saw cheeks from day ONE. Its not a good look. For anyone. Especially the preteen girls I see rocking it.

    Well said.

  16. Amen…:) Thanks for the sunday evening chuckle…:)

    amen brother – and thanks for the follow!!!

  18. Hosanna says:

    I do avger completely.

  19. Hosanna says:

    I do agree completely.

  20. Karron says:

    I am constantly shocked by the way parents allow their kids to dress. Whatever happened to kids being kids in tees and shorts that fit properly? I just don’t get the mini hooker look at all.

  21. eljai86 says:

    I agree. But I think the important point is not how much flesh is let out, but how short childhood is becoming again. Even though kids are not allowed to work anymore, even though all of them must go to school, even though we are not living in a country where they are used as killing machines, still ways are found to make them grow up before their time has come. Where is Peter Pan when we need him?

  22. Carrie says:

    Ha ha…I was out shopping for a dress for a formal event and since it was just before prom season, all I could find were super-short, super-tight, street walkeresque get-ups. A teenage girl was shopping nearby with her parents and I made some comment to them about not being able to find a dress that wouldn’t make me look like I belonged on a street corner. They all looked at me like I was nuts. I guess they didn’t seem to mind the idea of their daughter’s bits hanging out for the world to see.

    Parents need to realize that their children are sending messages through the articles of clothing they were. I’ve seen young girls showing more skin that I do, and I’m 19. Parents should really pay attention to their children.

    you seen this?

    (i don’t know how to make a short link in your comments, maybe you can do in the edit function)
    i suspect you will appreciate the brilliance of these ladies.

  25. funnybiatch says:

    I have thought about the same thing, every time I see a kid who made herself look like an adult. It doesn’t look good, it looks sad.

  26. malctg says:

    Hi Nick. Life has certainly changed since I was young. Thank you for following my blog. Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet.

  27. allisoncotecpt says:

    Couldn’t agree with you more! For as much crap as my mom used to give me about my clothes before going out to the bus stop, I understand why she did. I also had a (male) gym coach in junior high you used to emphasize to us girls about leaving things to the imagination. Don’t give it all away and let it all hang out. Have some class! That instance that you experienced, Nick, is poor parenting, yes, but it also sends a bad message about the girl, and although I would love to give her the benefit of the doubt on this one, I can’t in shorts like that.

    • Nick says:

      Its a damn shame what passes for clothing anymore. Since writing this post I have seen many more instances of kids wearing clothes that would be better suited for porn stars.

  28. Its so disappointingly sad. Kids these days have lost all the innocence! :/

  29. healthyandfitforreal says:

    Totally agree with this! Cannot believe some things that girls and young adults are wearing. Yikes!

  30. reikiheidi says:

    I have a young daughter and it scares me what she will be going through as she grows up. The culture and media that will influence her perception of herself, the branding, the ‘fashion’. Media and fashion divas have a lot to answer for. But as her parent, her guardian, her guide through life, it is MY responsibility to nurture her self-esteem so fully that fashion and image doesn’t come into it. Easier said than done, but that’s the point today isn’t it? We shouldn’t be filling our children’s heads with ‘what you look like’ but with so much self-confidence and self-esteem that their sense of self is not distorted or able to be influenced negatively by such external factors.

    I’m thirty now, but this girl was me at age 12. My mom found it funny that I would dress scantily and have a bunch of boys hovering around me. My Dad was too busy working to care. I craved men’s approval and dressed to catch their eye. I have 3 girls of my own now and wouldn’t dream of letting them wear stuff like I did.

  32. Thank you! I simply can’t fathom the minds of parents who make their kids pedophile-bait.

  33. qualitee says:

    Thank you for stopping by and following my blog. Totally agree with you and look forward to reading more.

  34. gmuniverse says:

    As a father of a soon to be 16 year old daughter, I heartily agree with you. Even if I didn’t have a daughter, I agree with you. It is a sad commentary to see some of today’s young kids dress the way they do – both girls and boys. Also, thanks for visiting my blog, “Catalyst Quotes”. I like your blog and find it very interesting.
