The post is still there. Feel free to go back and reread it. Where exactly is the word "immoral" in that post? Where is the phrase "makeup is immoral?" What I ACTUALLY said is that makeup at an early age encourages young girls to pose as older than they are. Do you see it up there? I said the company doesn't see the moral connection to...wait for it...encouraging young girls to pose as older than they are.

What I think is immoral and unethical is--as difficult as it may be to understand what with me using those exact words and all--encouraging young girls to pose as older than they are!

So, as it turns out you didn't comment on what I ACTUALLY said but rather on your misinterpretation of it.

It also turns out that you don't need to be a mind reader, but sadly, you do have to ACTUALLY read words.
So what do the words "moral connection" mean?

I think it is nice and I would buy it if I had kids provided they wished to wear makeup.

Anything other than lightly colored lipgloss is too much for tweens.

I am not looking for the last word. If "moral connection" does not mean that makeup is immoral (for young girls) then what does it mean? If I misinterpreted what you wrote I would like to know what you actually meant by those words. Because I can't see how your words would mean anything else.

I really don't see what the big deal is as long as she isn't looking like a hooker from westport a little makeup won't hurt a little girl.

Doubtful because she will put it on in school much like i did

She is very upset and said that Americans should wake up and look around to find our better judgement.

by the way she is Chinese and feels very strongly about this type of thing.

In the rest of the world it's not considered that big of a deal and the rest of the world has far less problems then we do...i think saying it is harming them is a tad ridiculous.

I think it is actually a halfway decent idea. Little girls love to play with makeup and that play stuff is awful and so bad for their skin. If this is made from better ingredients, it is better for them.

I didn't have a little girl but I can guarantee you I would have bought it for play, cheering, dance etc.....I would rather that than have her using my $25 mascara!

See you and i agree on something else once again . I think it's a problem when you allow your child to go all gooped up....but what is the harm of a a little girl wanting to look pretty or just play dress up? Though you could make cheaper mascara yourself LM...and it's a fun activity to do with your daughters....which you have none so i guess that really isn't an incentive
