Loc: FEMA Region 1 I'm waltzing through Macy's today and see THIS on the fragrance counter for "Justin Bieber's 'SOMEDAY'"

Is it just ME, or is this a pedo-perv situation? And "SOMEDAY?" Is that not implying that "he's not quite READY?"

Is it just ME????

Advertisers will exploit anyone for a buck, so yes I agree it is meant to appeal to the "lets go after, "not quite ready" people".

Remember the days when Calvin Kline had to pull their ads featuring young teens in just their underwear (CK of course), that were sitting in all sorts of "poses" meant to be purely provacative?

Or how about A&F having to pull their full line of thongs et all for girls 10 and under?

Here's the deal.... when Corey said that Hollywood's problem was pedo's.... I think he's probably right and not just being paranoid, and it goes all the way to those in charge of many businesses and advertisers!

25% of the children in this country don't get molested by a "few" pedophiles, they get molested by the ones that are hiding all over the place right in plain site.

Maybe its time? Maybe its time to go medieval on ALL of them? I say "Go medieval on the perps, the creeps, the pervs, the soul murderers and so on." Give them the chance to seek peace with God and his Son and then put them in prison by the truck-load/hour. Kick all the drug-convicted people out of prison and replace them with the true poison.

I recently read courtroom, pre-sentencing statement of a pedo. He, quite effectively, drew sad parrallels tween little-girl trollop shows, Calvin Klein ads, Abercrombie Ads, euro-fassion ads and his obsession with children.

Degrees of perversion and abuse??? I don't think in "degrees" when it comes to wronging/hurting a child. Rather, I think in black & white.

I totally agree with you, Robbie.

Its not just you Robbie

All we see these days is sex sex sex. everything is sexualized. Even a simple music video is not popular unless it is vaguely pornographic and slutty.
Rhianna, Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, and more and more. These are videos my 12 year old daughter is watching for Pete's sake (sorry Pete)

Is there no end to the innuendo? God help us.

The perfume ad is marketed at other teens, so I don't really think it is 'pedo.' And we should always remember, that it is physical sexual abuse that traumatizes kids, not music videos or films, which do nothing. There was more sexual abuse happening back when everything was repressed and kept hidden then there is now.

Has anyone watched the mothers at Bieber concerts? These advertisers know exactly what they are doing.

i have spent my life in theatre, marketing, promoting, advertizing, programming, media, circus, music, sales, business, industry, cult.

you are absolutely accurate.
you are aware and alert.

like cattle, we are branded.

this is a rather obvious example.
they are getting more blatant,
less subtle as we slide down the slippery slope into the abyss of amorality.

none of this is natural.
it is manufactured artificial
manmade industrial
fabricated fantasy
from some factory.

sales strategy
very often
relies upon
buyer stupidity.

the consumer is craven.
pleasure wears the mask of love,
the image is graven,
icons and idols and symbols
are scattered like seed.
they seek to take root,
but forbidden fruit
is no substitute
for love or truth.

nay, i dare say
'tis the antithesis.

past the pain is happiness.
beyond suffering lies success.
find the strength beneath the stress.
order lurks behind the mess.
we play checkers,
but life is chess.

we roll dice,
and all agree
to only see
one face at a time.

we deal cards
and never notice
that the shuffle
has already
picked the winner.

but the house always wins,
before the gamble ever begins.
because the game is fixed,
the dice are loaded,
the cards are marked,
and the deck is stacked.

From my perspective truth is completely absent in advertising. The point is manipulation and deceit for the purpose of sales. A huge and tragic consequence is people believe it, and are trained to believe what the advertisers promote. They are the purveyors of belief systems. Scary.

To reduce anyone, adults or children, to a sexual object is tragic and damaging to a healthy self-concept, IMO.

Divine Law is not judgment or denial of self truths. Divine Law is honoring harmony that comes from a peaceful mind, an open heart, a true tongue, a light step, a forgiving nature, and a love of all living creatures. Jamie Sams & David Carson, Medicine Cards
