I’m wondering how exactly Old Navy could have made the decision that this is an appropriate advertisement for its clothing for little girls.
Remind you of anyone?
This child is about 10 years old, and recreating a pose from the porn-y Miley Cyrus. Nice job, Old Navy. This is where we are today, that the Boston Globe would think nothing of publishing this full page ad with a creepily sexualized photo of a 10-year-old girl. What I find particularly bizarro is that this ad is in the front section of a daily newspaper. Who is this meant to sell to? Does Old Navy think that this image will appeal to the parents who will be reading this paper? Or are they just trying to establish a porn-y image?
What do you think, parents? Is this ad ok with you? Is it cute?

@erinmcnll This one is interesting b/c to me girl looks age-appropriate. But with Miley and other tongue associations, pic becomes vulgar.
