A 10-year-old French model has the world outraged, after the tiny model posed provocatively with full, dramatic make-up. Thylane Loubry Blondeau posed in the pics in a "sultry, seductive manner befitting of adults, along with two other preteens."
Who is responsible for taking the provocative pictures of the 10-year old French model? And where are the girl's parents, who are responsible for protecting her at such a young age? Her parents are very involved in the model's life. They are soccer player, Patrick Blondeau, and designer, Veronika Loubry.
Obviously Blondeau's parents have no problem with their 10-year-old being demoralized and sexualized, why should others, right? You may be thinking that this is not a big deal, but you haven't even heard half the story.
Blondeau posed on a bed without her shirt on, while a young boy checked her out. The caption under the picture states, "SHE'S NOT WEARING A TOP BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD OFFEND ANYONE shoot me." Seriously?
It makes no logical sense that the tiny French model's parents and photographer thinks that this young girl should be posing provocatively for the cameras. Is this not neglect from the parents? Aren't parents responsible to protect their children from harm?
Many people are outraged about the pics that showed up on the French model's personal website. Koa Beck, deputy editor for Mommyish.com, stated to "Good Morning America, "I think that I'm seeing a very young girl being sexualized, being gazed at in a very adult way." Exactly!
Shari Miles-Cohen is the senior director for the American Psychological Association. She stated, "We don't want kids to grow up too fast. We want them to be able to develop physically, emotionally, psychologically and socially at appropriate rates for their age."
Kids are already getting in sexually immoral situations at too young of an age, no matter to have the 10-year-old French model's parents encourage provocative poses. Isn't this what went wrong with Miley Cyrus. She was posing seductively on her MySpace page at the age of 13. This type of sexual behavior increases with time.
