Negative Effects on Body Image It’s also right in line with a study of published last month in the journal Sex Roles on self-sexualization among elementary school-aged girls. According to a report in Live Science, psychologists at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois used paper dolls to assess self-sexualization in sixty girls ages 6-9 recruited largely from public schools. The girls were shown two dolls: one was dressed in tight, revealing “sexy” clothes and the other in a trendy but covered-up, loose outfit. Both dolls, as you can see below, were skinny and would be considered “pretty” by little girls.
Using a different set of dolls for each question, the researchers then asked each girl to choose the doll that: looked like herself, looked how she wanted to look, was the popular girl in school, was the girl she wanted to play with.
In every category, the girls most often chose the “sexy” doll.
The results were most significant in two categories: 68 percent of the girls said the doll looked how she wanted to look, and 72 percent said she was more popular than the non-sexy doll.
“It’s very possible that girls wanted to look like the sexy doll because they believe sexiness leads to popularity, which comes with many social advantages,” explained lead researcher Christy Starr, who was particularly surprised at how many 6- to 7-year-old girls chose the sexualized doll as their ideal self.
Other studies have found that sexiness boosts popularity among girls but not boys. “Although the desire to be popular is not uniquely female, the pressure to be sexy in order to be popular is.”
Back to Disney. The new princesses reflect the changes in how girls’ see themselves (and what they want mirrored in the toys they choose–not only the new princesses but Monster High, and the upcoming Bratzillaz and Novistars dolls). As the first foray into popular culture, the new royalty–which Disney is the first to call “aspirational”– also both prime girls for that sexualization and fuel the trend. . . what if the prince needs rescuing? "More than 34,000 people die by suicide each year," making it "the third leading cause of death among 15 to 24 year olds with lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth attempting suicide up to four times more than their heterosexual peers."~wikipedia Let's Make a Change Love yourself Be a mentor The 91.6% Other Disney Shapes.... continues negative body image What should Disney, Barbie, or any other corporation dealing with girls do to help them be comfortable in their own skin?
