She’s 10 years old…that’s it. First, to be VERY clear, today’s article is by no means intended to be a Model Love article. I came across an article recently that talked about the fine line being walked when girls this age are being presented in a sexual way. I could NOT believe my eyes when I saw this young model…whose name is Thylane Blondeau. I’m in shock at this and would love to spark some conversation around this topic. Why on Earth would a 10 year old girl EVER need to be made to look like a 21 year old woman? Am I missing something here?
Is she beautiful? Yes, of course she is, but is this really the type of “light” we want to shine on girls her age? What type of message are we sending when we do things like this? And what kind of examples are we setting for girls her age? There are so many questions to ask surrounding this topic it’s crazy. We start playing a very dangerous game with the safety of our children when we do things like this. Seriously, when did it become wrong for a 10 year old to actually LOOK like a 10 year old?
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves:
Until next time!
