Chinese underwear show featuring girls as young as five criticized.
With the recent Hollywood scandal highlighting just how rife abuse towards women and minors is in the industry, and closer look is being taken at all aspects of ‘show-business’.
So it comes as no surprise that the organizers of a lingerie show in Chuna which featured ‘models’ as young as FIVE has been heavily criticized for encouraging pedophilia.
All across the world, each country has their own traditions and something that seems totally normal in one country can appear to be in bad taste to another, but it can be universally agreed that the sexualisation of very young children is degrading and dangerous towards them.
A shopping mall in Chengdu City in China was host to the fashion show, inspired by the Victoria’s Secrets fashion show that is aired around the world each year, attracting millions of viewers.
This ‘fashion’ show highlights just how normalized the sexualisation of children has become in certain circles.
The show mimics the Victoria’s Secrets fashion show, as they children parade up and down the runway wearing nothing more than underwear, wings, and headpieces.
Brooke Shields is just one child star who has spoken out against the way she was used in highly sexualised roles when she was just a young teenager. She was just 14 when she appeared in the film ‘The Blue Lagoon’ which was scandalized for its portrayal of her character.
And more recently, Corey Feldman has been trying to raise awareness of pedophilia in Hollywood, which he claims is still a massive problem, and one of the industries best kept secrets.
He claims the untimely death of his former child co-star Corey Haim was due to drug abuse and alcoholism that sparked from abuse he encountered in the industry when he was just a child himself.
