Sexualisation vs Infantilisation!

must write this down when we get back from yet another xmas dinner! (needs finishing!)

there is an industry around promoting the sexualisation of women and young girls. i find it disturbing that fashion seems to incorporate a lot of 'baby' stuff at the same time as teens and tweens are being sexualised. the line is being blurred in both directions.

what does this mean in terms of maturity? or wanting not to be mature? i know an 18yr old who is very proud of wearing clothes from the childrens' section. this ties in to body image and eating disorder issues.
