25. Sure- and that image remained a popular logo through the 1980's and beyond.

My only point being that if we were not "sexualizing" girls back then, then maybe it is still not the case now.

Apparently people in the 40's were less puritanical or guilt-ridden over this kind of harmless imagery. People did not think it was sexual.

Maybe the same should be true today?

It's just a cute toddler who is at the beach- in the OP as well as in the decades old advertisng icon. Anyone seeing more than that has a dirty mind. Shame on them, not shame on the swim suit maker's practical design.

I actually agree with some of the general points of the article. I just think discussing school clothes would make more sense than focusing on beach and swim-wear where the clothes are designed on purpose to expose the skin of the wearer to water & sun.

I'm not really arguing here, just making a minor point...
