I don’t really have a problem with thongs, but they seem to me to be about nothing but “sexy”. My daughter is smart, and has exhibited no behavioral signs that she’s thinking about showing anyone her underwear. No boyfriend, we set good rules, etc.
But, I’m all…*something *about it. I don’t think that 7 year-olds should wear eyeshadow, because makeup is to me a way to look more attractive to the opposite sex. As are thongs, right?
Well, I’d say that eye shadow is different because you’re meant to see that. Theoretically no one has to see a thong. Plus if you treat it like just another underwear, she probably won’t see it as sexy undies. Then again I picked up my birth control from my dad’s office when I became sexually active, so…boundaries, maybe, I lack?
The nasty thing about thongs, besides a whale tale being on display on a 14 year-old, is that they constantly slide back and forth between anus and vagina. That could mean a lot of costly trips to the doctor, as that causes some urinary tract infections.
Let her. If she’s showing off her panties to boys at school, it doesn’t really matter if it’s boyshorts or a thong or granny panties. I think 14 is old enough to decide what kind of underwear she’d like to wear.
I’d say yes, but I’d make her pay for them. And make sure she has the appropriate wardrobe to keep it covered (that is, tops that are long enough and pants/skirts that are high enough to completely cover her rear).
Eh, it’s just underwear. I know women who genuinely think they’re more comfortable, and when I was a teenage girl I was curious enough to have a pair. As long as she isn’t wearing clothing where you can casually see them I don’t see the problem, but I feel that way about all underwear, not just thongs.
I wear them and for me they are all about preventing VPL rather than the sexy. I don’t think I’d have an issue with my daughter wearing them - but I guess it depends on why she wants to wear them - has she said?
