Young Girls Going Wild, But at What Consequences?

“Role models” like amateur porn star Paris Hilton and her underwear-challenged cohorts Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan are prompting more and more young girls to “go wild,” but with negative consequences.
“As a society, we need to replace all of these sexualized images with ones showing girls in positive settings—ones that show the uniqueness and competence of girls,” said Eileen L. Zurbriggen, PhD, chairwoman of the APA Task Force and associate professor of psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. “The goal should be to deliver messages to all adolescents—boys and girls—that lead to healthy sexual development."
Really? I'm not sure I agree. The headline for this story at Fark.com:
Newest puritan fearmongering report: More women than ever are admitting enjoying sex and being in sexy pictures. Expert prudes say we must quickly protect them from themselves before they tempt us with their evil, evil bodies
I couldn't have said it better myself.

I bet Eileen L. Zurbriggen, PhD owns a bunch of cats.

I say to all the hot young ladies, show your sexy bodies.
