What really gets me are the stores that sell satin, sexy underwear for little girls. They have sizes for my 5 year old! It’s absolutely sickening.

… then punishes them for doing what they’ve been taught. I agree with you 100 percent. We’re pushing our kids, even young girls of 5, to “dress sexy” and to “be sexy” and then complain when teenage pregnancies start to rise. We’re sending kids mixed messages, and as long as parents continue to support the companies that make these things for kids, they’re going to keep doing it.

Why does everything that’s pretty have to come down to sex?! Sure, plain cotton does the job, but satin does, too, so what makes the one ‘sexy’ and the other one acceptable? The cut’s the same, so the only difference is the material it’s made out of. The kid sure isn’t thinking ‘Wow, that’s hot!”, those thoughts are all you. The point is that satin underwear is pretty. Case closed. Do little girls need pretty underwear? No more than they “need” pretty dresses, pretty blouses and pretty barrettes for their hair. I suppose you put your kid in prairie dresses and plain cotton?
