So Sexy So Soon: A Commentary on the Sexualization of Children by Jean Kilbourne
Thong panties and padded bras for seven-year-old girls are sold these days at major department stores. Tiny pink high-heeled shoes are advertised for babies. Risqué Halloween costumes for children (such as “Pimp Daddy” and “Child Ho”) fly off the shelves. T-shirts for toddler boys proclaim “Chick Magnet” and “Pimp Squad.” Little girls go to makeover parties and spas, and teenagers are encouraged to dress and behave like strippers and porn stars. F.C.U.K. is the name of an international clothing chain popular with young people.
Some of the cover stories for recent issues of magazines popular with young teenage girls include “15 Ways Sex Makes You Prettier” and “A Shocking Thing 68% of Chicks Do in Bed.” “Grand Theft Auto,” a video game especially popular with teenage boys, allows the gamer to have sex with a prostitute in a stolen car and then murder her. The latest version sold six million copies in its first week and grossed five hundred million dollars.1

Excavate Memories and Release Limiting Beliefs With EFT
by Tera Warner and Rebecca Johnson
Having had the opportunity to interview Carol Look on multiple occasions about EFT on the topics of weight loss, limiting beliefs and abundance, I have come to be convinced of it’s efficacy. While I may appear to be a flower-eating “hippie,” my need for scientific, quantifiable proof that something works is higher than you might expect.
My experience with EFT satisfies this need for me.
Until recently, my only dip in the EFT ocean was through these interviews with Carol, but having had an EFT practitioner as a roommate for 3 months, I was blessed with several opportunities to take it deeper–to address my own personal issues in a specific and targeted way and the results have been rather Earth-shaking.
