As the Father of a Daughter, Stories Like This Make My Skin Crawl

So it used to be that I could listen to stories about the hypersexualization of girls in our culture and nod sadly while not really caring all that much.

Then my own daughter was born, and suddenly crap like Bratz, those pants with the mildly suggestive slogans written on the butt, and too much of the media make me want to lock the front door and hide my family away until the Flying Spaghetti Monster returns.

The March 2008 NEA Today magazine has a nice (?) article on the subject (Lolita in the Classroom). This even before the Miley Cyrus kerfuffle. Lord, what are we doing to our girls?
