    I'd rather see a teenager wearing clothes in JC Penny commercials then computer animated or plastic models. As long as it is not sexual.

    There's nothing wrong with it at all. It probably gives these kids a huge ego boost as well as some pocket money. They aren't being exploited....

    I can understand pre-teen kids in Gap ads modelling khakis and shit, this will make the kids feel good as well as finance their college plans, however anything less than fully clothed pre-teens shouldn't be advertised... wait until 16-17 to start the bathing suit modelling, I think.

    The clothes they are modelling are being made and worn in public, what's wrong with advertising them? All you would have to do is go to the beach or the pool anyway...

    what about child molestors??? if a young girl about 13 is wearing something that someone 18-19 should be wearing which is more revealing dont you think a molestor is gonna target the 13 year old

    For me the issue is not with the type of clothing but the way it's being modelled. If it is the type of clothes that would be acceptable at a public swimming pool or beach, then theres no issue, but if the model is in a provocative pose as in suggesting "come get me" then it's not suitable.

    OoOOoooOOOoo....I saw that episode of Jenny Jones......!!!!


    Anyway, morally I would say bikinis and thongs are a bit much. But practically I would say, more power to them. So long as the ads and pictures do not become sexual/sensual they have every right to exhibit their body.

    I am a model so I see the artistic/struggling side of it. When I first started modeling I thought that it would lead to bigger and better things. But, most models are stuck in the world of modeling simply because most of them are just a pretty face. Very few models have acting talent, and or musical talent.

    These girls and sometimes boys think that they will instantly move to the level of GQ, Vogue, And Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. It takes many years of honing your skills and most of the time, amateur swimsuit models are the joke of the industry.

    Girls and Boys alike, fall victim to the dream that THEY are a star, the star. I have been to auditions where there are SEVERAL hundred models and most look better than me yet I have gotten the job. Just as I have gone to and audition with hundreds of people and NOT gotten the job/part.

    Though these girls may think so, they are not special or an exception to the rule.

    Pretty much agreeing with Peacefroggy on this. If it's something you would see as exceptable in a swimming pool or on a beach then I see no problem (lots of little girls where tankinis etc and I dont think thats wrong). However if things looked provocative then I think thats very bad taste.

    I'd also like to say that people have become far far too panicky about the whole paedophile thing. Ok, so yeh it happens, but people shouldnt start wrapping their little kids up in cotton wool.

    the problem is people aren't wrapping their kids in anything half the time.. the youngest 'teenage' mum (as they're called) in the Uk is 9.. nine!! god, get her back the dolls!
    the way these kids are dressing (in the clothes that the models are wearing) can't be helping, if a little kid has clothes sold to them as 'sexy' then what do you expect?
    I can't spell. Deal with it.

    I don't think anything is wrong with it. AS long as it's not provacative or sexually suggestive.
