The story of Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison’s marriage might be old news for some of you, but I just came across it today and must agree that it was disturbing, to say the least. After watching their Good Morning America interview, I decided that I needed to write a post about it. I read most of the comments on the interview and it seems to me that everyone was outraged because a 16 year old girl married a 51 year old man. To me, that part of the story is not as important as Courtney Stodden being half naked in all of the videos of her on the internet, and moaning while touching herself during all of her songs.
I had trouble watching the interview but not as much trouble as I had watching her music videos. Many people were comparing her to Rebecca Black. “Just another teenage girl that wants to be a start putting out a silly video”, some said. I don’t see the comparison.
At least Rebecca Black did a song that was appropriate for her age…Courtney Stodden is a wanna-be Ke$ha, minus all of the great things about Ke$ha. Watch for yourself.
Now, I don’t really want to hate on Courtney. She’s sixteen, and probably doesn’t know any better. In fact, I’m sure a lot of sixteen your old girls would find absolutely nothing wrong with this video. Which brings me to my point…Teenage girls are starting to express their desire to be sexy at younger and younger ages- and it’s becoming so normal that no one sees anything wrong with it. Between the ads on TV, porn everywhere, it’s almost like the media is leaving these young teens with no choice but to think they HAVE to be sexy.
But there is a huge difference between being sexy& taking control of your sexuality, and being told & responding to “let me see” or “give it to me” by guys. And unfortunately, I don’t think a lot of girls know the difference.
