The blogosphere has been up in arms over Beyonce’s new “House of Dereon” clothing line for kids, or more specifically, about the ads for it, which look like this:
House of Dereon ad

The clothes themselves aren’t drawing controversy, it’s the way these kids are posed. Considering we live in a culture infused with sexual imagery – “Gossip Girls,” “Sex and the City” and every music video – it’s interesting that ads like this – or Miley Cyrus’ Vanity Fair cover – strike such a nerve. What do you think? Punch a button on the poll or click “comments” and weigh in with your thoughts.

    THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PARENTING ISSUES.
    PARENTING ISSUES HAVE EVERY THING TO DO WITH YOUR INFLUENCE OVER YOUR CHILDREN, NOT OTHERS INFLUENCE ON YOUR CHILDREN.
    IF YOUR CHILDREN ARE SHOWN AFFECTION,LOVE, AND KNOW WITH OUT A DOUT THEY ARE YOUR TOP PRIORITY IN YOUR LIFE. THEN THAT IS A GOOD START.
    ALL CHILDREN ARE INNOCENT AND YOUR CHILDREN WON’T LOOK AT THIS AD AND SAY SEXY, THEY WILL INSTINCTIVELY KNOW THIS IS DRESS UP AND THE CHILDREN ARE SMILING AND AT PLAY. AND AS FOR THE ONE WITH THE HIGH HEALS SHE LOOKS LIKE I DID WHEN I FIRST TRIED ON MY MOM’S HEELS, TRING TO KEEP HER BALANCE! LOL! BUT I WAS EXCITED WHEN I COULD ACTUALLY STAND UP STRAIGHT! THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL SHOES, WHAT LADY OR GIRL WOULDN’T WANT TO TRY THEM ON. THEY ARE AVAILABLE IN THE HOUSE OF DEREON LINE FOR LADIES NOT THE DEREON FOR YOUTH!

    Beyonce is so talented! I grew up in Houston too! Nice to see a person from my home town make it to the top!

    I like Beyonce…but to me she is living for the spotlight too much, everything has to be perfect, I think she is trying too hard. And she is insecure about herself and what other people think. And she is always trying to show off her assets in everything she wears, thats very disappointing, because when you look good anything you put on always shines!
