Get Thee To Ello's...

Brilliant writer, Mom to Angus, and tickler-of-funny-bones everywhere, our dear Ello is tackling the serious subject of media sexualization of young girls with Dr. Gigi Durham, author of The Lolita Effect. Scoot on over to Ello's Place on Wednesday, May 28th, for a thoughtful discussion about this troubling cultural phenomenon.

If you don't, she might make you sleep on the floor. ;)

A great discussion. I could only catch pieces of it, but just read through all the comments (connectivity being up again).

I want this book, as well as the original Lolita.

YOO-HOO! I'm fascinated to traverse one link after the other in a second (of time, so what if it's only from a cyber cafe :D)

It wouldn't be the first time I've had to sleep on the floor.

It was a lively discussion. And I'm glad you guys enjoyed it, too! My husband and I took up the topic yesterday, and I'm sure Ello inspired many other similar conversations. What an accomplishment!

Ouch, Scott. Sorry. Isn't it good for the back?

I was grinding it out, staying in the rugby match conversation, until...Ariel got dissed.

That was it.

I took my Sebastian-the-Crab comb and went home.

Seriously though, the post sparked a vigorous and very healthy debate.

I am so glad you enjoyed it! Phew! I'm still recuperating, but it was well worth the effort!

And thanks for being supportive! you're a peach!

You're blinded by her clam shells, aren't you, Prince Er--um, I mean, Jason? ;)

Great work, Ello! That must have been an intense discussion to guide. But you did a fantastic job! :)
