@Pete1215 as much as I wish that were true, I'm afraid it's the
opposite. It seems that as soon as women (and men for that matter) are throwing
themselves around, they attract a wider audience, thus make more money. Sad!
A friend in the music industry in L.A. noted that some mean stuff going around
certain women's lib blogs she frequents were celebrating that their
religious friends' ethics weren't being followed by their kids. To
which she noted that neither were the lib ethics being emulated by lib
offspring, noting the stats mentioned in this article: "I guess we can
either revel in each other's failures, or mutually admit that we're
both failures."Sad but true. Annie Lennox said it best. And
still we try..,
I don't see the industry being "torn"..... They promote it
I suspect that for as long as young women know they can obtain things
(attention, money, fame) through the display of their sex, young women will
forever be tempted to display their sex to obtain things (attention, money,
fame). Others in "The Industry" who can profit from this bad behavior
by giving it a stage will indeed do so. But implicating something as vague and
amorphous as "The Industry" as the source of the problem isn't
really addressing it.
If you have to market your body to remain musically relevant, you will no longer
be musically relevant (hence the proffering of sex to add value).
The best way to fight the sexualization of young women is to teach them
personally and STOP focusing on Ms. Cyrus. "Any press is good press,"
and the more we keep focusing on her (even negatively), the more we are giving
the entertainment industry exactly what they want...attention.
The only thing the entertainment industry is torn over is how much Monet they
will make .
