ED. NOTE: I had to think long and hard before publishing this, however, it was a breakfast table discussion and everyone was very passionate about this so we print it for you to read and think about.
Breakfast started innocently enough with one guest having read an article that morning about a priest being defrocked because of the sexual abuse of children. None of us was particularly interested in the topic until one person put forward her theory and then the breakfast table came alive.
We have all heard and read more than we ever wanted to know about this disease. It has taken center stage often over the past several years and we wanted to know what has caused such a large outbreak. What has happened to society that this is something we have to worry about and from which we have to protect our children?
What changed and has moved forward and grown in the same time frame that Pedophilia has been on the rise in the society and is related!!!
If you have gone to a major fashion show over the past 30 or more years and especially watched the shows of the hot, new and well-known fashion designers, whose clothes command four, five and sometimes six figures, I am sure you’ve noticed that the models are about 13, 14, 15 years old. They look more like little boys than young women who can carry off elegant designs. The designers and their models – the children – who strut down the runways, have had an enormous influence in the society – as has their “strut.”
Years ago – in ancient times – back in the 1950′s, one had to be 35 years or older to be a model because the clothes were very elegant and meant for women, not for the too thin, malnourished-druggie looking young kids who are too underdeveloped to be the women they are trying to mimic and replace. We wondered if some of these young children weren’t pre-puberty! And where were their parents?
As the fashion industry changed and the models became ever younger with the clothes designed to make young girls look like young boys, pedophilia began its rise.
We were not worried about offending anyone in this conversation because it was just us talking around the breakfast table about something we all had been thinking, but no one had the courage to say out loud because we all thought, maybe we were on the wrong track and had gotten the wrong opinion – after all, would not the media, the magazines, the arbiters of good taste, who love to criticize and find the flaw in everything, have come out knocking this if such a horrid pedophilia-encouraging development were connected? But that “wrong” opinion was shared by everyone around the table. A couple felt relieved to be able to say these things out loud and not be put down or ridiculed.
It has been difficult to be over 35 and a size 12 or 14 and find clothes that are elegant and wonderful on your body. We’ve had many friends talking about “augmenting” their breasts and we wondered – what on earth for – the clothes you buy don’t fit anyone, even a size 4 who has a breast-size larger than a 32 double A. – The ideal female figure to fit into these clothes is stick straight – with none or very few curves which are then hidden and minimized.
The “glamour” “top” models are curve-less. The older models who have to think about retiring or about getting into something else, are about 35. When someone still looks pretty terrific at 49 it is considered quite an achievement. We knew and know women in their 60′s, 70′s and 80′s who look sensational. It was a common occurrence decades ago. Today, we consider them over the hill and ancient. In the 1950′s they were the ones wearing the designer original clothes and looking exceptionally good in them because their age and experience allowed them to carry off these beautiful clothes.
We didn’t know how this phenomena of the rise of the 13 to 20 year old super model connects with pedophilia, but it certainly appeared to us that one was the genesis of the other.
We knew there were pedophiles in society before today. But the difference between today and way back in ancient times is in the numbers and the fact that today, children are not safe and parents have to keep a vigilant, constant eye out for adults trying to solicit their child. And the children walking down the adult runways in the top fashion shows in New York, Paris, etc. have changed the age range – and the definition of what is sexy. Years ago, it was a mature woman. Today, it is a child.
When the definition of what is sexy is changed to a 13 year old emaciated child either with make-up to look like someone on an extended bad drug trip or naturally looking like that because that is indeed their problem, then it seemed to us that increasing incidents of pedophilia and increasing numbers of pedophiles in this society is the natural result.
