The Ladies Sexy, Sexy… Six-Year-Olds?

Oh, God help us: There’s a new online video game aimed at seven-to-16-year-old girls called “Miss Bimbo.” The goal: To win “bimbo points” by getting skinny, slutty, and popular, with the ultimate aim of becoming the “hottest, coolest, most famous bimbo ever!” Step one: Get a cool but not-too-taxing job or find a “sugar daddy” to keep you in “bimbo bucks,” which you can use to buy sexy clothes, lingerie, breast implants, or diet pills to keep you at your “target weight”—“waif thin.” Players are told to “stop at nothing,” even “meds or plastic surgery,” to win the game. Along the way, they encounter challenges—like level 7 (“After you broke up with your boyfriend you went on an eating binge! Now it’s time to diet”), level 9 (“Have a nip and tuck operation for a brand new face”), and level 11 (“Bigger is better! Have a breast operation.”) The game’s creator (a dude) told the Times of London that the game is “tongue in cheek” (because nine-year-olds really get that whole irony thing) and that it teaches girls “morally sound” principles about “the real world.” And lest you think this is just an obscure, silly lark by a to get feminists all riled up, consider this: As of this post, Miss Bimbo had more than 225,000 registered players.
Meanwhile, in totally unrelated news, the Tacoma News Tribune reports that parents are finding it hard to find non-“sexy” clothing for their little girls. That means velour pants advertising girls’ six-year-old asses as “Juicy”; low-rise jeans for girls too young to have hips to hold them up; shirts in little-girl sizes with slogans like “Knockin’ Boots”; and platform heels more appropriate for strippers than elementary students. ““The pants rise on little girl pants are too low to be practical,” one mom is quoted as saying. “Kids run, jump and hang on monkey bars. With these fashions, their bottom is hanging out at recess.”
Hey, Mom? If you’re reading this, just be grateful that when I was a preteen, the worst thing you had to worry about was me wanting to wear all black all the time.
