One nearly daily battle is around clothes. Too sexy?
Not appropriate? In our APA Task Force report on the sexualization of girls we detailed three sources of sexualization. The first is cultural. The second source is interpersonal. Girls are sexualized by their peers and by adults. The third source is girls themselves. Girls want to wear hip, trendy clothes. And these seem, increasingly, to be exactly the clothes that make us worried.
Those are the clothes all their pop culture icons are wearing. And self-sexualization is even sold to girls as a source of power! The message is that females manipulate with their appearance. Girls self -sexualize, in other words, because they see all around them that this is the way to be a popular, successful female.
Tackling the cultural-level sexualization of girls is a big job. I do think, however, parents and schools can and should do more to educate boys and men to stop objectifying the female body. They can help it, and they should. When safe, stare right back and hold a mirror up to sexualizers — they ought to be ashamed. Parents of boys: teach them that girls deserve dignity and respect, no matter what they wear. And now we come to the battleground of the third source of sexualization: us versus our daughters themselves. Here, decades of research on the negative consequences of self-objectification give us some ammunition.
Studies show that girls and young women who have a more self-objectified view of themselves and wearing sexualized clothing puts girls in a state of self-objectification perform more poorly on a math test, throw a ball less effectively, and feel more body shame and anxiety. What is it about self-objectifying that le to these negative consequences? Think about it. Sexualizing clothing typically requires a lot of mental energy for the wearer.
This way, we help them make choices for them selves about their appearance. Nobody wants to wear something ugly. So, help your daughter see the benefits of wearing outfits that reflect who she is and what she wants to do, not who the sexualizing culture says she is or ought to be. These kinds of clothes enable her free and non-self-conscious movement in the world. Roberts is the Chair of the psychology department at Colorado College. Her research interests center around the social psychology of women, gender, and the body. Empowering Girls: Media Literacy Resources. Sexualization of Girls Report.
I agree basically with this article, but girls are witnessing pop-music stars, models, and actresses function and dance in stilettos and mini dresses. Girls are still being sold princesses. Kate Middleton is a bit of a frumpy dresser in my opinion, but Prince William was remarked for having admired her sheer dress as she modeled in university.
Baby bumps are being dressed in tight fashions by NBC Today show hostesses and they like to show how classy Princess Kate is. To be part of the work force. Birth-control should be funded.
The pregnant trend in fashion is just as bad as the sex object one. Girls are being sent back to the fifties as the word feminist is being cast as a villain. We would not be here without them. Like Like. At that point, dressing for authenticity and agency becomes more tricky, both for girls themselves and the well meaning parents who are guiding them through the gauntlet. I bet that most teens will answer positively dissmissively. Those questions worked on me. Never did I feel that my clothes were criticized because of any other reason than that they were not comfortable for the situation or that other types hiking clothes, formal clothes, everyday clothes etc of clothes were more appropriate.
I believe that because of this my entire focus and trail of thought leaned more on what I felt comfortable in than what als I sent out. Of course, I dressed up some days for the occasional crush, but never really having sexy clothes made it hard for me to wear sexy clothes for my crush. As a result of this, I think that if I now happen to dress up in some more challenging clothes, my attitude and everyday behavior and look, defeat most of the als my clothes could ever send out.
Reblogged this on Steph Benson and commented: Great article about girls and their clothing choices. Very informative blog post.
Much thanks again. Article was long winded and took way too long to get to the parenting advice, which was ultimately weak and completely unhelpful. No teenage girl is going to accept that her choice to wear a mini skirt is going to diminish her math grade or her ability to perform well in sport. I think you need to get real and the real world of parenting where arming kids with meaningful advice they can relate to is useful. Stumbled on this discussion by accident. I have three daughters 17, 14, 10 and the way they dress has never been a problem. I think it is because we have had a very clear and simple dress code for all 3 of them since infancy: at home they were dungaree pants or dungaree shorts not the skimpy typeand to go out they were skirts and dresses of their choice but always with tights underneath.
They love dungarees and all 3 of them at have often chosen to wear dungarees to go out, even to school. Our daughter is 16 and last year when she was 15 we finially had her baptized at Easter vigil. The standard white cloth baptismal diaper with plastic pants over it is worn under their dresses with a tee shirt as their top. Since these girls have to bend over to recieve the water on their he,their dresses went up in back and their diaper and plastic pants could plainly be seen,including our daughters!
These girls werent embarrassed in the least bit and the teen boys all got a good look and their diaper and plastic pants. I dont know how teen girls can do this and expect boys to respect them! To Clarice a. There were at least a half dozen girls in the 15 to 17 year old range last easter vigil whose dresses were midthigh length and when they all bent over to recieve the water on their he,everyone could see their diaper and plastic pants,two of the girls had ruffles across the back of their plastic pants and other girls thought they were cute!
Some of these girls had their boyfriends with them and i can only imagine what the boyfriends must have thought! Written by a true femminist. You see ever since to stone ages males have been attracted to females because of their bodies. Animals today show off parts of their bodies to attract mates and it has been done since the stone ages with humans. Its retarded to think now because females want to be the same as men wich can not happen because of our DNA simply, you can get a sex change but your DNA will still be man and woman that the men should just drop their instinct to be attracted to a female showing off parts of their bodies that the men dont.
If you want to be treated the same how about you dress like a man and be comfortable, us men are confortable in knee shorts and a t-shirt why does a female have to wear tiny clothes. If a girl wears jeans and a tee, is she better than me just because I want to wear a mini skirt or tight jeans? We should learn to support on another. Yes, we should be mindful about when dressing a certain way is important i. To Clarice A and Linda-Yes,i agree with both of you! It is not only baptism that i have seen girls in short dresses,but also teen flowergirls in weddings!
I have been to several weddings over the years and have seen teen flowergirls in the 13 to 15 year old range dressed like little flowergirls in top of the knees to midthigh length puffy dresses with veils or headwreaths,with lace socks and white shoes. Just about all of the girls had either a disposable diaper with rubberpants or a cloth diaper and rubberpants on under their dresses and they looked like toddlers!
I dont know how these girls could want to be seen by people in their outfits and not be embarrassed! The one wedding i was at back in was a large one and there were four teen flowergirls,1 at 13,two at 14,and one at 15,and all four of them had pastel pink,sleeveless dresses with a flowercrown with ribbons down the back,pink socks with white lace and pink shoes. They each had a cloth diaper with pink rubberpants over it and their dresses were so short that the bottom of their diaper and rubberpants stuck out!
I couldnt believe what i was seeing and that these four girls would allow them selves to be dressed in the outfits. This article is clearly written by someone with a weak libido.
The harsh truth is, people with stronger sexual drives always suffer because of uneducated people with weaker sexual drives who try to make us feel like freaks and monsters. This is why you neurotically view the male gaze as something destructive and this is why you constantly tell other women what they can or cannot wear in order to express their sexuality. We are all sexual beings, we all have the right to exist as such and we all have the right to look ar whomever we get the impulse to look at and the right to wear whatever we get the impulse to put on.
And we are also allowed sexual emotions at all times, no matter what what the zeitgeist, feminist propaganda or the sexually consevative current of our time tries to sell you. As a 17 year old I disagree with this article. I have mostly been allowed to wear whatever I want but as I get older and grow into my style and myself my parents start to think I am becoming more sexualized even though I am confident and not wearing things too skimpy as they say. I do agree that there is a line between dressing in your style and being a straight hoe but I think parents need to understand as their kids grow older it is basically ineviditable for their daughters to get looked at no matter what they are wearing and they should have the choice to decide how they want to be precieved by others; male and female, but it definitely should NOT be the girls fault at all because of the way she is expressing herself.
I do know from friends how unhealthy body positivity and self esteem issues can start with parents weather you believe so or not and you could be doing more harm then good.
