Advertisement meant to drive traffic. AT&T, Yahoo and Aerie Shame on you. Child pornography.

Updated on February 18, 2013

See all the happy little ones around Buddha

Happy children is what we should see in ads, not sexy children.

Please help me find avenues where we can change this.

Disgusting and vile is how I can describe an advertisement seen on my screen when I checked my email. There was a girl made to look 16 with her pajamas open to display her breasts and red brazier. I have to say I took a double take and studied her face. (yes men can do that) She definitely looked like a teenager. She of course was a dirty blond bombshell of a looker. But she just was too young looking to pose like that.

I am not posting a link or reference - that would republishing and dead wrong.

ABC's of LOVE is the toughest thing a child should learn

Am I off base? Straighten me out if I am wrong.

Where in the heck are the parents of these models?

Please companies, Please do not do this.

I cannot find any redeeming social value to this particular ad. That is the test for pornography in many cases. It does not serve to promote the company in a healthy way, it is prurient. Child pornography is wrong in all shapes and sizes. This is the epitome of degrading women because it legitimizes child women as sex objects. It degrades men because it lures them before they realize what they are looking at. Jimmy Carter said that lust in the heart is a sin, you need not act on it. If he is right then this is the work of the devil. Even if not it is the work of depraved hearts and minds.

Please help me. This is what children should look like, not debased or victims

I imagine the ad is gone by now. It was just too blatantly wrong. But I am not gone.

I will do the heavy lifting but I beg for your advice.

Keep this thought in mind. The Newton CT massacre began with a young man of 20 shooting his mother. This can only occur in a society void of respect for women. Then moving on to children only solidifies my belief that respect for young and women, somehow missed this bad fellow’s learning curb. Of course it did when so much is spent to debilitate the male mind. I am now looking into to this further. I of course will speak with my son, I will call my representatives and I will search for online information. If you know of a resource, that can aid me in my efforts to cure this abuse please let me know here.

      Thanks for coming by Christopher. So scary. Sometimes you question your sanity for bringing children into to this world. That should never happen.

      Sexualising of children, especially young girls, is way too prevalent nowadays. It can only lead to trouble.

      Thanks Billy and Ed. The ad seems to have been short lived. But the societal problem is alive and well. But it is a tricky balance with freedom of speech. I am learning.

      Bravo my friend! Sex trafficking, internet porn, it is a big business and will remain so until the populace decides to take action. Great message!
