If we all look at the way women act today and compare their modern day actions to the ways that women used to act... We see some very big differences in the way younger girls and women act. While there are a lot of reasons as to why girls act so differently, I am inclined to blame the majority of it on parenting and guardianship in general. Let's take a look at teenage celebrity Miley Cyrus... Because she is a popular example of everything I mean.
Miley Cyrus Gets Sexy For Vanity Fair
Sure, normally this doesn't seem to strange compared to what we see on magazine covers today but Miley Cyrus was still only 15 years old and had very recently been exposed for controversial sexual photos (sexting photos) from her Myspace page.
Miley Cyrus and her parents issued statements claiming that Leibovitz manipulated Miley into allowing the photo to be taken... But how can a 15 year old girl be manipulated when her parents (who were both present during the photo shoot) could have objected and stopped the entire thing.
The truth is that Annie Leibovitz violated Miley by taking advantage of the fact that Miley's sexual Myspace photos were a hot topic and therefore she knew that a sexy half-naked photo of Miley Cyrus on the cover of Vanity Fair would sell a lot of magazines. Miley's parents also failed to see a dangerous situation and whats even worse... Miley's parents failed to prevent Miley from being manipulated and violated.
In the end... Miley was just a minor 15 year old girl and the parents and guardians that were supposed to protect her... Completely and totally failed to do so.
Miley Cyrus's FIRST Nipple Slip
While doing a video shoot in a low cut white dress... Miley Cyrus suffered what most people would refer to as a wardrobe malfunction, which caused her left breast to become exposed.
Once again, Miley can't be blamed on this one either. Miley shouldn't have been wearing a dress like this or the production company should have made sure that it was as securely fastened as possible to prevent this type of thing from happening. Thankfully though, the image is so poor that it doesn't even look like a nipple... All you really see is Miley's hair hanging down.
Miley Cyrus's Second 'Intentional' Nipple Slip
Just a few days ago Miley Cyrus was flaunting the new tattoo she got below her left breast (in honor of the White Horse Nip Slip?) that says, "Just Breathe". During the afternoons festivities Miley decided to do a little sun-bathing and loosened her bikini... Which came VERY close to being Miley's first accidental (intentional) nip slip.
I'm going to place blame for this on both Miley and Miley's parents though because Miley should know better than to risk going topless around a bunch of photographers and Miley's parents should have taught Miley better than to childishly sun-bathe with her top off while around people she doesn't know (especially photographers).
The simple truth is that most of these situations could have been avoided if Miley's parents had done their jobs. Most of these situations also could have been avoided if the 'adults' surrounding Miley weren't always trying to use her as a way to make a few extra bucks.
This seems to be a popular trend amongst girls today... Everyone knows women are sexy and everyone wants women to show their sex appeal... So they can make money from it.
I think it is about time parents took control over their children and taught them about acting 'proper'. You know what 'proper' is right? Simple things like keeping your legs closed while wearing a dress or sitting with your legs crossed... Don't take naked pictures of yourself and send it to friends... All the simple things parents used to remind their daughters of.
It's amazing how much women and parents have changed... and Miley Cyrus reminds us of that EVERYDAY! Some people refer to this as 'women finally taking control over their lives' but finding new ways of making yourself seem 'easy' isn't the type of behavior former feminine-activists were trying to teach women about and it's a modern trend that we're all responsible for stopping... Parents, friends, guardians... Everyone.
