That is fucked up.

8 to 5 says she ends up on The Real World.

And then the surreal life

My personal vote is for Girls Gone Wild

said Bigus Dickus on June 24, 2008 4:11 PM.

I disagree. I think this is an incredibly funny picture! And she's sporting plastic breasts - gargantuan ones at that! It would be weirder if she had no top on. Plus, the little girl looks like she's getting a kick out of it and, to be honest, I can see myself doing something exactly like it when I was her age.

said Katherine the Great on June 24, 2008 4:24 PM.

Well....ummmm....at least the guy holding the tail has a funny shirt on.

said Bigus Dickus on June 24, 2008 4:36 PM.

Soon to be grandparent of the year...

She may have got the older sister's costume, innocently... That's how more and more girls end up like Britney, Paris & Co. "She's just a little girl... Does not know what she's doing..."
My ass kids don't know nothing...

And I think that its fucked up. I'm raising a girl too, and no to be the queen-slut of elementary school.
Sure she can dress up like a mermaid, even with bras made out of shells. Would be cute... more than the gigantic plastic breasts. But this costume in particular is very wrong.

Lame and inappropriate

said Jedi Bendu on June 24, 2008 5:13 PM.

At some point he must have thought - "hmmmm, what color should I paint my daughter's nipples? Let's try green". That's just wrong.

said Scaramouch on June 24, 2008 5:23 PM.

Where do you get that rack anyway. (Just asking).

said E on June 24, 2008 7:51 PM.

"that's just wrong" is the battle cry of the dull and unimaginative. For your sheltered mindless children, maybe it would be, but i suspect this dad is quite cool, and the little girl had a blast, and if you don't like it then don't look.

No joke though, I am happy to see that New Yorkers have time and place for something as whimsical as a mermaid parade. That is very cool.

said E on June 25, 2008 2:11 AM.

Yeah, this picture makes me feel like I should be featured on Law & Order: SVU.

said Bigus Dickus on June 25, 2008 9:03 AM.

@burfa: I'm not against her dressing up like a mermaid, or whatever... I like the fact the dad is the one supporting her on the parade. Usually moms do it while dad wait in the parking lot with a 6-pack.

My concern is about the slutty look of the girl in her costume. I find really cute when little kids use costumes and even cutter when the costumes are unusual as a long tailed mermaid... but there are some lines we should not cross.

Here in Brazil we have a musical genre (I don't think it's real music, but it sells...) where all the bands play while 2 to 4 barenaked girls dance as they were set in fire(sexually speaking). Theyr sound is so contagious (not for me) that almost everyone around gets caught by the rithm... You can see here and there parents who encourage theyr little girls to do that pelvic total sexually intended dance.
Man, it makes me sad... Makes me think if they're really able to parenting...

Almost all the girls I saw being thrown by their parents on this trap, now are around 17/20 years old with a child almost half theyr age...

Nowadays we end up banalizing sex and sexuality, we try to confort ourselves thinking that you can't avoid the kids from getting it from scholl fellows, TV, magazines... but we can make an effort to show them what's right and what's wrong on all that information they gathered.

I stand thinking that this costume is awfully wrong. I look at her and don't see a little girl, I see a pre-teen, looking for her 15 minutes of fame at 'girls gone wild' or something like that.

said Leonardo Carvalho on June 25, 2008 10:36 AM.

ooops... misspelled school (scholl)...

said Leonardo Carvalho on June 25, 2008 11:21 AM.

@Katherine the Great:

Yeah, you can see yourself doing something similar as a little girl, and then your parents say, "I don't think so honey." Because six-year-old girls aren't the authorities on the appropriateness of sexually suggestive outfits. Their parents are.

There's a pretty distinct line between dressing up as a mermaid or a fairy or whatever and showing a little perfectly innocent tummy, and donning adult-sized prosthetic breasts that effectively transform a child into a presentation of a full-grown half naked woman. It's bizarre, unnecessary, and creepy.

said myrtle on June 25, 2008 6:02 PM.

@myrtle:

I say Amen!

said Leonardo Carvalho on June 26, 2008 11:06 AM.

Leonardo, you misspelled alot more than school. Kathrine, where were you for this one?

said Jeni Gump on July 2, 2008 1:38 PM.

Not thaaaaat much... but thanks for advising, Jeni.

I wrote it in my lunch time, a little too fast... After posting, I spotted the school misspelling, then after I saw 'rithm', 'theyr'... but after all... did you understand my point?
And also, I'm not a native English speaker... give me a break... it's not my first language.

I'll check and recheck again and again before posting another comment, OK?

said Leonardo Carvalho on July 2, 2008 2:12 PM.

I didn't realize that English wasn't your first language, you did really well at getting your point across then.

said Jeni Gump on July 2, 2008 3:53 PM.

I'm happy I could make myself clear, Jeni... I usually read tech texts in English, but not always use it for conversations (even written)...
I'm trying to improve my vocabulary and grammar... I feel like sometimes I could write some things in a different way that I did...

said Leonardo Carvalho on July 2, 2008 4:02 PM.

Your conversational English here is pretty damn good Leo. FireFox has a built in spell check widget that highlights your misspelled words like Microsoft Word does, go, download, spell correctly and prosper.

said Jeni Gump on July 2, 2008 5:21 PM.

Thanks, Jeni. I'm glad to hear (read? heheh) it.

I installed the English dictionary in my FFox today... I always do, but I had to reinstall M$ Windows and I forgot it... I'm still trying to remember all the extensions I had installed...

I guess that reading all those tech texts and buying some pocket books in English (Stephen King, mostly) helped me to.

said Leonardo Carvalho on July 2, 2008 6:02 PM.

Do you want to e-mail me? I'll be more than happy to help ya out with some slang and nuances .

said Jeni Gump on July 3, 2008 11:23 AM.

Yep, Jeni. I'd like to. My address is leonardomdc at gmail dot com

I can be also found on skype, the same username as the email address (without the gmail stuff...)
