The Marketing of Porn to Children via Sweet Young Things

The tabloids have been waiting five years for a Miley "flame out." Yes, back in 2008, all the talk on Miley Cyrus was about her being just a normal 15 year old who took life as it came and left all the agent stuff (of a Disney star's life) up to her parents. How did that turn out?

Five years ago Vanity Fair ran an interview with the star of Disney's hit show Hannah Montana.

With Lindsay Lohan rehabbed and Britney Spears under psychiatric care, the tabs are looking to Cyrus to flame out, or at least do something mildly outrageous.[snip]

"Yeah," she continues. "I guess that's why I'm so adamant about the Britneys and Lindsays and whatever, because I know those people and I know they have good hearts and they're struggling."

You seem so well adjusted, I say, which is probably the worst thing an adult can tell a 15-year-old. "That's just my personality. I don't get shaken or stirred up over anything. Which can be a problem sometimes. I'm just, like, so no emotions. I just don't let things faze me. I'm very much like my dad. My dad's like this."

In the VF exposé Billy Ray Cyrus posed with his teen daughter Miley for Annie Liebowitz in a semi-pornographic picture. Then, three years later in 2011, while going through a divorce, Billy Ray declared his family had been ripped apart by "Hannah Montana." The country star wished the show that catapulted his daughter to stardom had never happened.

From The Telegraph:

"Yeah. I'd take it back in a second," Cyrus said. "For my family to be here and just be everybody OK, safe and sound and happy and normal, would have been fantastic. Heck, yeah. I'd erase it all in a second if I could."

He said his entire family was baptized before leaving Tennessee for Los Angeles to protect themselves from evil, and he believes Satan is attacking his family.

"It's the way it is," Cyrus said. "There has always been a battle between good and evil. Always will be. You think, 'This is a chance to make family entertainment, bring families together ... and look what it's turned into."

Sorry Billy Ray, your star struck daughter and wife, as well as yourself, threw your family into a tailspin. Mr. Cyrus was obviously part of the problem when he allowed a photographer to place him and his 15 year old in an incestuous, sexualized pose.

After the 20 year old's MTV performance this past Sunday, Dad indeed may be asking if Miley needs an intervention.

Another thing, I'm not one of those who thinks there's too much attention by the media on Disney girls gone bad. They personify a pornified culture held together by the entertainment industry, exploitative parents and sex reformers like the infamous Alfred C. Kinsey. The collateral damage from the progressive march toward sexual liberation keeps piling up.

The fact that sweet little Hannah Montana morphed into a 17-year-old pole dancing, girl on girl kissing entertainer with hardly a nudge and now, three years later, she's performing simulated sex acts and faking orgasms in front of millions, has managed to rattle even the libs at MSNBC. Mika Brzezinski called the act "disgusting and embarrassing."

Constitutional lawyer John Whitehead also weighed in on Cyrus' metamorphosis from a self-avowed Christian teen to porn star. Whitehead cited unmonitored children as young as eight watching sexually suggestive videos as one way smut has been mainlined directly into their developing brains.

The bombardment of sexual images has made what used to be considered adult entertainment just part of pop culture. Miley's a product of the sex lure present everywhere in the commercial world. She is just like her fans, plunged into a world where sex is as common as drinking a glass of water.

What I find most disturbing is the in-your-face marketing of porn to children. The initial promotion of girls like Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus as wholesome, sweet throwbacks to the 50's, only to have them rebel in the worst possible way later on, shows that these girls and their parents have bought into the sex selling industry.

What does the shift from cute to slut in such a short time do to their target audience, the six to 14 year olds, who now see their idol stripping and twerking all over the place?

The selling of these young women as images of innocence and purity for the sake of raking in a hundred million and then a few years later acting as if the whole thing was a joke, has to be one of the worst abuses today.
