How does it make you feel when you see parents dressed is a very seductive manner when at thier children's functions, such as Pamela Anderson dressing in her customary sexpot fashion at her young sons' soccer game (or doing other things that seem out of context in relation to the occasion)?<br><br><br><br>
I know that I feel sad for the children, knowing that the attention their parent gets when dressed that way is likely of an overtly sexual nature and seems inappropriate for the occasion (a children's soccer game). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:"><br><br><br><br>
Granted, the attention they parent gets is probably overtly sexual in nature to begin with but the manner of dress likely impacts just how MUCH sexual attention the parent receives. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/juggle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":juggle:"><br><br><br><br>
Thoughts? Other examples of parents (celebrity or not) who behave in these ways?

Classy, not trashy, folks!<br><br><br><br>

honeslty, i do not think much of it... I have enough to think about and to try and control in my own life... it's their business. It's their children, they will raise them how they see fit, regardless of what anyone thinksor the stereotypes that are made.

But I am not thinking or talking about a 'stereotype'. How would it make *you* feel if your mom was dressed in a see-through top with her huge implants hanging out and the shortest shorts possible at your soccer game? Would you not feel awkward and uncomfortable? Obviously it is the parent's choice to dress (or undress <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> ) as they choose but all I am saying is this: Do you not feel sad for the children who are subjected to such outlandish behavior?

Now that sounds like stereotyping to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
What's wrong with dressing classy? Classy means professional, stylish, polished. You know, not trashy and overly provocative.

Why would you assume things about thier potential as humans and thier development based on a 'classical' appearance? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/kick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":junk:"><br><br><br><br>
(Why do you always say 'prolly'? I always have wondered that <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> I know you mean 'probably' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> )<br><br><br><br>
Following your (obviously sarcastic) example, wouldn't you feel sorry for the kid whose parent showed up to a BBQ Fair in a 3 piece suit (where 3 legged races and water ballon fights were being held)? The same logic applies, really.<br><br><br><br>
I feel badly for any child whose parent dresses in a contextually inappropriate manner at one of thier functions. It just seems like they aren't taking the child's feelings and needs into consideration as much as they could be.

i feel sad for children that have such boring parents. i feel that children "subjected" to khakis and GAP polos need intensive therapy or else they will all end up as accountants.

Seriously. What is outlandish to YOU is not outlandish to others. Do you feel sad for kids whose parents show up in sweatpants? Do you feel sad for kids whose parents show up in beat-up cars? Do you feel sad for kids whose parents don't show up to the sporting game? Maybe. But not enough to start a thread about it, obviously.<br><br><br><br>
You're judging people on their appearance. For all you know, everything you've seen about PA is an act and she is a clever, intelligent woman.<br><br><br><br>
You never know.

but i think you have to remember she and everything about her is what her boys have known - they have been raised by her. to them it is the norm, they see nothing "sad" or "pathetic" about it... it is just "mom". when they get uncomfortable will be when people pass judgement vocally about it and start telling them how "humiliating" and "embarrassing" it is for them and that we "are so sorry" they had to grow up with a mom like her. They love her, and to the best of our assumptions, accept her.<br><br><br><br>
and as a side note, I wouldn't be surprised if their friends think their mom is the coolest around... which can do a lot for a boys confidence!

Are you serious? If I ever have kids, they will NOT dictate what I wear, period. If I want to wear a tank top to a soccer game and little Susie begs me not to because she's embarrassed of my "old lady arms"... she can suffer. A tank top it is!

For what I HOPE is the last time, I am not 'JUDGING" anyone on anything. I am saying that I observe children who feel uncomfortable when parents are dressed in ways that are inappropriate to the occasion. Would I feel sad if a child seemed uncomfortable that his mom showed up to thier awards ceremony in dirty sweats? Yep! That's why I stated in the beginning of this thread that we should post examples of celebrity or non-celebrity people <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"><br><br><br><br>
For the record, based on what I have seen, Pam Anderson *is* clever. That is besides the point.

Yes, I am serious and 'old lady arms' are a bit different than post-implant nips <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Dressing inappropriately is different than "wearing a tank top even though the old lady arms will be hanging out."<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">
