We did some household shopping, today, right before Odysseus really buckled down and started studying. One of the things I've been keeping an eye out for, for the pixie, is a new swim suit. We started at Sam's Club with the household shopping (and damn it, I forgot the kids' vitamins!), and I spotted children's swimsuits. For $10-12 each. Sizes 4-14.
So, I pull out the size 4, and look at it: the legs are butt-cheek-baringly high-cut. For a four year old.
I put it back. The pixie sorta liked it, but was more like 'meh, don't care.'
And then we hit Walmart for a couple of things. Initially, it was going to be one thing, but the pixie decided she was hungry and wanted popcorn chicken. So, we all went in. And I decided to look for suits there.
And I despaired: all of the one piece suits had the high cut legs that would wedgie in to show off the entire butt. It's one thing to have this type of an option for adult women, but for little girls??? And that wasn't even the worst!
A bikini. An honest-to-god bikini. It comes in zebra print, too.
Okay, people: What. The. Fuck.
What kind of sick fuck puts their two year old in a bikini?
And then wonders why we have so many more pedophiles becoming bolder and bolder?
Any case...I did what I could to find something that I deemed appropriate: a tankini with boy-shorts. Found one in pink camo up top, and hot pink on the bottom. She already likes it more than anything else I spotted, and I think it'll be cute without trying to sexualize a tiny girl.
But still, my mind boggles...a bikini. For toddlers.
