Who's your Daddy? or Hey Little School Girl.

Just pretty and special. 
A facebook caption "pedophiles dream" beside this picture. The topic was about sexualisation of children. It seems to be true. We can look at the tragic story of Jonbenet Ramsey as an extreme example. It seems to be everywhere and it is normalized product of society.

I watched the tv show "How I met your Mother" and this one episode joked about the phrase "Who's your Daddy" and how when considered it is really creepy. (At least I think that is the tv show. These tv sitcoms are all the same with character's and humour.) It also occurred to me, we like to sexualize the child in song as well.

Not pretty and not special. 
"Hey Little School Girl" line was used in  the Stan Kubicek movie Full Metal Jacket. The image was even used by  Britney Spears in one of her first videos. Wonder what the message is here?

I do admit "Who's your Daddy" is not only used as a sexual reference but one of dominance. (Which in a way is a sexual thing as well, but anyway).  We seem to like thinking of young girls and why is that?

But see that's the thing isn't it? We use something so much it becomes normal - the everyday - the part of society.

The message used many times is subtle that is right there in the open and we just accept it.

I laughed at this one comment on Youtube video of Neil Diamond's "Girl, you'll be a woman soon."
"I know what Neil is talking about. Last week I came home from work and my girlfriend was standing at the top of the stairs with her suitcase packed. I asked her what's up she said I'm leaving you and I'm like why ? she said I have reason to believe that you're a pedophile and I said pedophile that's a rather large word for a 10 year old. I'll miss her ."

Do we sexualize just the girl image or is it normal with boys as well?

Lot of songs will play the little girl angle. I really like the song by Waylon Jennings; Only Daddy who will Walk the Line. 

Its funny eh? The way we just accept how normal things are? Like being a sinner as in original sin? Who is born with sin?  Geez that's crazy but just another normality in society, where Women are the original tempters.  Temptation line reminds me of this tv show Criminal Minds or CSI where a pedophile drugs a little child in the washroom of a kids play room and when he is caught he says "She tempted him"???  Its just a show but it sure made a statement.

Oh well its just normal.
