About Those Underage Girls

The incident with the underage high school girl and her 18 year old friend made it seem necessary to at least point this out. The girl in this documentary is 13 years old. And she is being painted up and marketed based on physical attributes that, well, how do you put it delicately? She is being marketed based largely on her sexuality. She’s 13. But this, society seems to accept as being okay. Keep in mind, she’s not the daughter of some middle class guy who’d beat the snot out of anyone who laid a finger on her. She’s a poor farm girl from Russia, and so, somehow, we simply judge her beauty and ability to market our products using her as our display case to peddle our goods.



update: Apparently the model at the center of the story isn’t too happy with how she was portrayed in the movie.
