51. Defining the new normal
Maybe I'm just too normal for primetime, because the notion of getting it on with a teenager just doesn't appeal to me. But...

...is it any wonder that so many grownups have these thoughts/urges when everything in our culture is geared to sexualize youth?

When you're constantly bombarded with images of 14 year-old rock stars dancing around in their underwear, wouldn't you begin to think this is the new normal?

Ever check out the female teen apparel section of your local department store? Even the children's section? Skimpy halter tops and miniskirts being marketed to 6 year olds? What other motivation could there possibly be for encouraging kids to dress this way?
