Just Say No To The Teeny Bopper Generation

Hey I just joined :)
So I agree with every aspect of this.
I was walking around the shopping centre the other day, went into primark + seen a HUGE shelf of double meaning pants (you know like the filthy stuff like "lick my cherry" + stuff like that) for kids. There wasnt a normal pant in sight.

I mean Im 18 + dont really like thongs but Im not the biggest big pant fan but seriously. I dont think I even wanted my first pair of thongs my mum bought me. She told me VPL was unattractive + bough me a T shaped thong (not one of these cheese grater type things or the 7 year olds seem to be wearing hanging out of the jeans).

Im all for promoting a healthy body image for kids but all that is counteracted by the pressure of these pre teen role models worrying about there hair + eyeliner + what the boy next to her thinks of her water bra!

Just thought I would vent :)

Just Say No To The Teeny Bopper Generation

I watched something interesting on the news last night (I was originally watching something about the author of "Natural Cures" and his critics, and it showed up) that really surprised me a bit. Ambrecombie and Fitch had been going an issue with a group of teenage girls who were trying to get some of their T-shirts removed from the store because the messages these shirts had were degrading towards women. These shirts are especially popular amongst young teenagers and they're usually worn because of the humor/shock value.

Some examples of these shirts were this:
"Who needs brains when you have these?"
"Anatomy Tutor."
"Do I Make You Look Fat?"
"I had a nightmare; I dreamt I was a brunette." (Yes, this was one of the shirts that also struck a nerve to the girls, who claimed they were sick and tired of the 'battle' between brunettes and blondes)

Ambrecombie and Fitch removed several of their shirts, but the teenagers going against the shirts still have a lot of work to do. They're going to be meeting with the company to negotiate about the shirts. Although, a lot of people think that there's a thin line between getting offended and learning to take a joke. Many girls don't see what the big deal is and that the girls "just don't have a sense of humor." The company also stated that they represent a group of women today and that there are no bad intentions.

But how much is too much when it comes to representation of what American girls should be? Ambercrombie and Fitch is also the same store that sells thongs to little girls and is very well known for using "pornography" for their ads (naked men and women, etc). It has been dealing with numerous of boycotts for quite awhile now and the numbers seem to be building (it also had-or has-to deal with a lawsuit about racial discrimination). If you'd like to see the petitions for both of these issues or if you're interested in finding out more about it, go to the links below.

Personally, I'm satisfied with the girls that have pointed out that some of the shirts' messages are degrading. A lot of the shirts seem to point out that the only thing girls care about are their looks. While I'll agree that there is some humor in them (the one about "I dreamt I was a brunette" made me chuckle a bit, even though I'm a brunette myself), some shirts got too carried away with the so-called humor. I thought that the community should be aware of this, because things like this do influence younger girls and teenagers and contribute to the "teeny bopper" idea that we're not too wild about.

Now, any opinions on this matter? Is this good or bad? Are girls finally starting to see a problem with what stores and society are trying to say about younger girls, or do they need to "lighten up"?

Hi, all. I joined because I really don't like the way teenage girls act and dress these days. I also despise the steriotypical shows about a girl who is trying to be popular, some random popular girl that hates her, etc. Also, they all seem to have some anti-fur/animal testing/dissection episode. Weird, huh?

Anyways, glad to be here!

M'kay, just joined here and stuff. I don't like teenyboppers. They are very aggravating. Especially when you go to Neopets, or something like that. Go to the Newbies boards, and you'll see what I'm talking about. Yep. Nothing of moral value there. Chat speaking 10 year olds who talk about Hilary Duff all day. I'd bet you you'd get at least two topics like this on every page: "lYk OmG, Wh0 wAnTz 2 rUb mI (.)(.)????" They certainaly made me hate Neopets much more than I already do.

But so I won't get off topic..

I don't like Bratz either. They are little sluts, I swear. They where these little skirts that show their butt, and are just, bleh. Not only that, but they are overly-commercialized. Everytime I turn around, they make some new piece of crap, like Bratz 'Babyz' or 'Ponyz'. If I see a kid with one of those, I'm going to break it in half, I swear. Tell their parents to stop buying them little slut dolls, that's what I should do.

I also don't like Lizzy McGuire or just about anything on TeenNick. I saw a commercial on Nick about Zoey whatever. All it had was some sluts being mean to the main character. Pointless. What ever happened to all the nice shows, like 'Rocko's Modern Life' or 'The Angry Beavers'? Why is it the majority of the crap on Nickeloden is non-cartoon? I thought it was a channel for kids, not some drama llama sluts that cry when their beloved sister of a slut is insulted.

There is no advertising allowed in this community.

I understand if you're a member and have a community that you want to pimp out, but we don't allow advertising in this community. If you want to promote your community, I'll redirect you to a promotion community, or tell you to go to the search engine and search for "advertising" in interests. I know I didn't state how I felt about advertising communities in the rules, and I apologize for that, but I don't want anyone advertising a community here. Just post your rants here. That's all.

My complaint? [Jun. 15th, 2005|02:16 am]

[mood |confusedconfused]

Hey, it's me, the main tainer, or one of 'em.

Okay. I'm starting to notice a trend that's going around with the television shows. Is it just me or are all of the television shows meant for children from ages 9-13 seem stereotypical than usual nowadays? I'm starting to notice it a lot more nowadays, mostly because my sister is eight years old and we share a bedroom, so most of the time she's watching the TV, not us, and the computer I use most of the time is, strangely enough, in the same room. It's hard to avoid and not to notice.

For example, Lizzie McGuire. I know people have said that it was a great show, that it made a lot of money, and that the main character is a so-called "sweetheart." But the last time I watched the show with my sister, I didn't even see the word "sweetheart" being emphasized in the character Lizzie at all. The main character not only whines when her parents say "no" to something ridiculous she wants to do, but she also yearns to be popular, crushes on a stupid jock, and worries more about fashion and trying to avoid geeks to spice up her image. If they mean she was a sweetheart near the end of the show, well ...sorry. I didn't hang around that long to notice.

And then there are other shows that try to copy Lizzie Mcguire, such as "Unfabulous." Same, stereotypical thing. Misunderstood main character trying to become popular and make a name for herself, two best friends (a girl whose obsessed with fashion and a boy who seemingly enough only hangs around those two girls and never around any guy friends of his own), a popular girl making fun of the main character for no reason, and parents who never understand what "fun" is.

... Can I also ask something else? Why does the main character always get away with getting cocky with their parents? I mean, I'm seventeen. If I even attempted whining as much as these little girls do, I wouldn't be able to finish my sentence, for crying out loud. o_O;

Well then! Here's MY rant. [May. 31st, 2005|02:02 pm]

[mood |annoyedannoyed]

I'm sorry to all the Barbie/Bratz doll lovers out there, but this HAS to be said.

Ever since I was a little girl, I had barbies. I loved those dolls, because they represented something I could never be. Popular. Pretty. A size D cup with a Size 1 waist. But back then, the barbie dolls actually had clothes that covered up EVERYTHING.

Now a days, i can't go down the toy isle without seeing some skank-assed barbie doll, portraying sex-appeal to small girls that that's how they're supposed to be. I mean, come on, with the Barbie doll, they don't even give her underwear anymore. She walks around panty-less in her Malibu beach home with a 70,000 dollar porsche boxter parked in the driveway. The only clothes I ever see for Barbie now a days are the short skirts, tubetops, thigh-high boots, or shorts that show her ass cleavage. And yes, I just said ass cleavage. STFU. XD;

ANYWAYS. Thanks to this new generation by Matel, girls in kindergarten are allowed by their parents, no less, to go to school in spaghetti-strapped tanktops, short skirts/pants/shorts, and BABY THONGS. Yes, you heard me right, the fashion industry has actually made thongs for children SEVEN AND UNDER. How freakin' sick is that? And we all wonder WHY these girls are getting picked off by pedophiles everyday? They act-and dress- like a lolita! (For those of you who haven't read the book LOLITA, It's about this girl who is about..oh, I think 12 or 14 when her step father starts to have sex with her, and stuff, because she gave off the impression of a nymphet. [side note-Nymphet is a child nymphomaniac])

SO yeah. That's my rant. FLAMES AHOY! =D lol.

This is your Friendly Neighborhood Creepy, signing off!
