Web. 5 Nov. 2012. <http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2152290/How-watching-TV-lowers-self-esteem-levels-children--young-white-boys.html>. "How many times have you flipped through the pages of a fashion magazine or watched a runway show and thought to yourself that a certain model was too skinny? Too fat? Too short? Too pretty? Too average? Too tall? Too curvy? Too lanky? Too old?... ...TOO YOUNG?" Something that we see that is becoming an issue in our society today is the sexuality of young girls. What we mean by this is how girls are dressing and acting a lot older than their age. who does this issue effect? girls
boys Positively Negatively girls
media viewers (pedophiles) When? Why does this happen? parents
innocent girls solutions There hasn't been any solutions, because most don't see it as a problem. Also this issue is not as severe as others in society. It is not life threatening there are just possible psychological long-term effects. Mostly everywhere,
but mainly North America

Happens in the Media - tv, magazine, sports(dance). 7/10 girls believe that they are not good enough, whether it's looks, performance, school and relationships.
53% of girls are unhappy with their bodies.
77% consider themselves ugly.
40% of 9-10 year olds tried to lose weight.
75% of girls with low self esteem reported doing things like; cutting, bullying, smoking, and drinking. Case Study Purpose: to access self sexualization in 9-10 year old girls. 60 girls are showed two dolls
1) dressed sexy 2) normal Overall, most often the sexy doll was picked. Therefore, it is believed by young girls that sexiness leads to popularity, and boosts popularity among their peers. 68% said that the sexy doll looked the way she wanted to look 72% the sexy doll was more popular when do you think this is okay?

where does it get to the point when you think its too far? Who was your role model? give example.
how did they dress?
social status?
success? anthro, psych, soc views

anthro- isnt really significant to any cultures. dressing older as a child isnt something practiced in cultures. in the cultures that this usually happens in, there arent certain ways to dress to fit in with them, for example amish people has to cover themselves up, and will not be excepted otherwise, not a problem?

psych- the issue involving the individual, expresses how they see and feel about themselves when it comes to the sexualization of any females. For instance, they feel as though they need to be 'perfect' and look a certain way, so they are excepted and feel good about themselves. However, when you dont feel as though you can fit in, it can cause your self esteem to lower, resulting in various things.

soc- sociologist would look at this social issue as a way to fit in. If all the celebrities and 'popular' people are wearing or doing a certain thing (ex. tight, short clothing) then others girl will do the same because they want to be just like them. some may feel if they don't look a certain way then they could be labeled as an outcast and bullied. If if a girl knows it's not right many will do it and take desperate measures to look as everyone else does because the worst thing is not being accepted. Where? Given the information that we have presented so far, where do you stand on the subject? Thinking about your role model as a child, do think this is how girls should act, dress and grow up to be? If yes, do you think girls will grow older to become a "good role model" acting the way they do now? Which one looked like herself Which one would she rather play with which one looked how she wanted to look Who was more popular STATS where do we fit APS in?
