I'm just wondering about how everyone feels about the term "sexy" when used by a child. Recently my six-year-old niece was visiting, and while she was redesigning her Mii, she asked, "Which color will make her look sexy?" I responded that any color would be attractive and she should choose that which she felt was the most appealing. She decided to make a cute little vampire and chose black. But why, I wonder, "sexy"?? And then just now, I saw a commercial for a toilet paper. This little puppy is being pampered and says, "Looking sexy." C'mon. Seriously? Why does a puppy need to look sexy? Why does a toilet paper need to sell "sexy"? Why cannot another term be substituted?
