Sharing - Backlash After Company Advertises High Heels For Babies

~ Posted on Friday, May 1, 2015 at 8:28 AM ~

I came across this article which I must definitely share with you guys as I'm very interested to know your thoughts on this. For your convenience, I have copied the excerpts from the article here:

"A company selling a range of high heels for babies has been branded 'sickening' - as parents claimed that it is trying to sexualise children. Parents are also disturbed that photos advertising the bizarre baby fashion items showcase the children in silky underwear.

The company behind the shoes, Pee Wee Pumps, which is based in the US, offers the heels for £20 a pair.

There are six ranges available, with three dubbed Wild Child, Sassy and Diva. On its website the company boasts: "Pee Wee Pumps will be your daughter's first fashion statement."

But parents are not impressed, with an online backlash underway. "High heels are designed for one purpose — the sexualisation of women," one parent said.

"That is fine because women are mature enough to make such choices but putting these on a child is just wrong.""
