For two years now, the tasteless titans of the cable channel TLC have been exploiting the spectacle of hyper-ambitious stage mothers parading around 'beauty queens' just barely out of diapers in thousand-dollar gowns. The program is titled 'Toddlers & Tiaras.' But now it's even worse: they're dressing up little girls as what radio hosts are calling 'prosti-tots.'</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/commentary/cmi-commentary-pageants-and-prosti-tots" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Commentary Culture and Media Institute aired awards cable dickey dolly episode facebook getup girl girls hair impact innocent julia license named offensive pageant parton pedophiles people prosti show tiaras tlc tlcs toddlers tots year years Fri, 16 Sep 2011 18:26:00 +0000 admin 2101 at http://www.mrc.org The 'Innocence Snuff Film' http://www.mrc.org/commentary/innocence-snuff-film <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/l-brent-bozell-iii">L.

The first question many Hollywood critics should ask: Isn't it curious that Schwimmer would care about this issue - after he earned a million dollars per episode on one of the most sex-obsessed sitcoms of all time?</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/commentary/innocence-snuff-film" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Commentary Culture and Media Institute actress adult Advertising child father film filming girl important Interview liana liberato rape room scene scenes schwimmer sex society star telegraph underwear victim Women year Fri, 08 Jul 2011 16:47:00 +0000 admin 2102 at http://www.mrc.org Blue Tube http://www.mrc.org/special-reports/blue-tube <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/cmi-staff">CMI Staff</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>It's every parent's nightmare.

Readers generally assume Abby can be trusted to provide traditional advice on all topics.</p> <br /> <p>However, a Culture and Media Institute analysis finds that Abby's advice on sexual issues frequently veers far away from traditional moral standards. Traditional morality teaches that sex should be limited to married, heterosexual couples, but Abby doesn't see it that way.</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/special-reports/down-dark-abby" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Special Reports Culture and Media Institute 2003 2007 abby abbys Abortion activity addressed adult adults advice advise ago asked baby behavior benefits Column Columns concerns culture daughter dear dressing education fact families family friend friends gay Gays girl giving health Homosexuality husband Infidelity information issues lesbians Letter letters life lover make Marriage married men moral morality mother organization organizations parenthood parents people pflag phillips planned Pregnancy pregnant premarital Prostitution protect reader readers received referred relationship response sex sexual sexually site stated stop support teen teens told traditional transmitted unmarried web wife woman Women wrong wrote year years young Mon, 10 Nov 2008 02:00:00 +0000 admin 31536 at http://www.mrc.org
