I found an interesting quote in a CNS news brief (third from the top) Tuesday:
Young girls are being bombarded with photo-shopped images and are buying into unrealistic expectations set before them at an age meant for skinned knees and the Disney Channel.
As a father of a Disney Channel viewer, I’m not sure I would put the network on the side of injured knees. Disney’s female teen stars don’t have a spotless record in avoiding exploitation by their elders. Corporations present certain expectations in order to maximize profit. Even kid-oriented advertising doesn’t escape the taint of setting up young viewers to live as commodities. Sex is not the only porn peddled by some of our corporate masters.
