Child Sexualization in Hollywood

Well, this is a topic I had to get out of my system after I saw how Priyanka Chopra praised Billie Eilish's Vogue magazine cover. Well, it's the right for anyone to wear and be whoever they want but what we can clearly observe in Hollywood is something I call Alice Vagina hole of Hollywood! Is it vulgar to talk like that? Well, it is more horrific to sexualize every little girl in Hollywood and act like nothing is happening.

I know Billie Eilish is 19 already and in many countries, 19 is counted as an adult but, this is absurd that we see children in Hollywood growing up pushing toward the hole of a funnel in which they need to turn blonde and overly sexualized and the scariest part is being praised for that with adult actresses on such REVOLUTIONARY transformation! When Chopra said, "I think I just stopped and stared for a second" to praise Eilish beauty, it annoyed the hell of me. I asked myself, wasn't she stunning before such transformation? Was it necessary to boobify her innocence for someone like Chopra to be astonished?

Lolita Complex in Hollywood

We are seeing more and more sexualized images of children and teens in media not only by Hollywood but self-sexualization of these kids. How this can be happening? Well... The New York Times reported that "in 2018, tech companies uncovered over 45 million online photos and videos of children being sexually abused — more than double what they found in 2017." Well, possibly, I'm talking like a conservative who doesn't know what is freedom of choice but don't forget, I write about things the society doesn't like to hear. The TRUTH which they like to call Transgression or POLITICALLY INCORRECT!!!

In Hollywood, child sexualization among girls is very common starting from age 3. One of Shirley Temple’s first roles in 1932 was as an exotic dancer in a bar for soldiers in "War Babies." She was three years old at the time. An article in The Guardian analyzes Hollywood’s “Lolita complex” and the ways in which those in charge of Temple’s career exploited the sexualization of her childhood innocence.

According to NBC Natalie Portman says that "sexualized roles as a teen harmed her. We have thankfully begun talking about the need for consent in relationships, starting at a young age, but that can’t stop when the cameras roll." This is good to see the actresses are speaking about their trauma through their young age in Hollywood. I remember how Natalie was a sex symbol as young as age 10 after the movie, Professional. The cringe is not this only. It's about how they become sex symbols for a bunch of pedophile middle-aged men.

Do you remember when Britney Spears shaved her head? It was 2007 the time that seemed all of the child stars were cracking up. Something must have been very wrong with Hollywood if such icons had been driven to the point of a public meltdown. This is an old story with a never-ending happily ever after. In 1937, Graham Greene wrote these in a review of Shirley Temple’s film Wee Willie Winkie that "Her admirers—middle-aged men and clergymen—respond to her dubious coquetry, to the sight of her well-shaped and desirable little body, packed with enormous vitality, only because the safety curtain of story and dialogue drops between their intelligence and their desire." He claimed that perhaps Temple’s popularity with the public was more sinister than it was innocent and I do agree with him as we can see clearly what is going on in Hollywood.

Another example that recently spoke up is Matilda Star Mara Wilson who slammed Sexualization of Young Girls in Hollywood. Wilson is speaking out against the sexualization of young girls and sharing her own experiences of being objectified as a child star in an essay for Elle. She explains that someone wrote her fan letter, "his name was Don, or maybe Doug. He was a grown man, one I’d never met, and he wanted me to answer his fan letter. His writing was hard to read, but I could make out just enough: I love your legs, and Can I have your lip print on the enclosed index card?"
