The rate at which the general public is expecting young children to grow up is one of the most concerning flaws in civilization today. Where does it stop as teen pregnancy is younger and younger and shows like MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” are making young girls with babies an accepting thought?

To add salt to the wounds, leave it to Abercrombie and Fitch. They have now produced a push-up padded bikini targeted for girls as young as 7 years old! If things like this keep being a novelty and encouraging girls to grow up sooner and sooner as well as providing young males a platform to view girls their age as sex symbols, these habits will lead to younger and younger children partaking in sexual acts and experimenting at earlier and earlier ages.

 But 7 years old?! That’s second grade… first for some… it can’t get much more nauseating than that. Where does it stop? When as a whole, are we going to unite and say that this is not what we want for the youth of America. By treating young children as their respective age and providing them with quality examples instead of trash is the only solace for a light at the end of the tunnel regarding these horrifying trends.

 By Abercrombie and Fitch providing something like a push-up padded bikini and parents going through and purchasing a product like this for their youngsters, it is only sparking the fire in the marketplace and in society for promiscuous behavior to keep roaring its ugly head with reception being the only result. Abercrombie and Fitch should be allowed to sell sex and create a company surrounding the shock value of sex… but ONLY if it follows the law, only dealing with 18+. Dipping into the underage pool should be criminal and there should be some sort of punishment for having the nerve to provide something so destructive and repulsive.

It must be a united front to say NO to these types of things. Let children be children. I know sex sells but when does morality come back and play some sort of role in this unraveling deterioration of society and generations to come? There must be a voice for children who don’t understand what damage these types of things are causing. Childhoods are being robbed and innocence is being replaced with pressure.

Abercrombie and Fitch should be ashamed of themselves and we should be ashamed that this is happening in our world.
