According to the official press release announcing the line in September, the designs feature “versatile styles that can be worn with sweet ballerina slippers, casual sneakers or paired with lace stockings and boots for more of a rock and roll look.”Okay, I suppose "rock and roll style" might involve animal prints and corsets... for eight year olds. But take a look at these images from the line: Is that a pole in the background? Are there ANY parents involved in any decisions made in these kids' families- including Ms. Miley there, who as you might recall did pose almost topless for Vanity Fair at aged 15. But 15 is a sexual age. It's supposed to be anyway, even if crazy religious groups would like 15-year-old girls to pledge eternal virginity and wear "promise rings" from their fathers. Eight is NOT. I'm not going to impose on any sexualized being's "right" or "choice" to dress like a sex worker and call it fashion, despite having serious doubts that such fashion is "liberating." But as 3rd Wave Feminism has been telling us, there's something "liberating" about embracing one's inner lap dancer. And I supposed to be fair to the mostly middle-class white women who think "pole dancing" is both fashion and a great exercise class (as opposed to the primarily poor and disproportionately of color women who do it for a living), engaging in their own pornification can provide some resistance to the "sexual innocence" and "purity of white womanhood" so near and dear to the racial hierarchies of America. But seriously - is there anyone who believes there is anything resistant or liberating about turning little girls into "female chauvinist pigs"? Does anyone other than the Cyrus family and Disney and all the rest of the megastars and megacorporations making a profit off of the pornification of 2nd graders think this is a good idea? I have to believe that when Fox News and I both think that the pornification of 2nd grade girls is a bad idea, then most of America will not be buying these slutty little numbers for their 8-year-old girls.
