Hooker Couture to Soft Porn

With the election of a ‘pussy-grabbing’ President of the United States of America, The Sexualization of Girls and Girlhood is a timely topic. This cultural phenomenon didn’t just begin, but it has escalated from First Lady Michelle Obama celebrating the hooker couture of Beyonce, to the soft porn of former nude pin-up model Melania Trump.

As Melissa Farley of Prostitution Research and Education observes, “Media literacy resource material must include resources on sex stereotyping and also specific education on the damaging effects of the media’s sexualization of children, with recommendations for ways to discuss these issues with children of different ages.”

“These resources,” she says, “can decrease the toxic media sexualization of girls, encouraging them to grow up with a sexuality that is not imposed on them by pimp and pornography-dominated cultures.”
