Kendall Jenner, the Kardashian’s 14-year-old half-sister, looks great in a bikini. The whole world knows this, because she’s just posed for a sexy photoshoot wearing a particularly tiny one.
Kendall’s shoot poses some uncomfortable questions, as well as showing off some uncomfortable poses. Should we really be looking at sexy pictures of 14-year-old girls? Who is the market for this? Where are this child’s parents? Have they never heard of Lindsay Lohan?
As iVillage points out, this girl is three years younger than Miley Cyrus. She’s a kid. She is, if her photos are to be believed, growing into a beautiful young woman. But she’s not there yet, and it seems like her parents would be doing her a favor if they invited the circling sharks of papparazzi and fashion agencies to back off.
Kendall will still be beautiful when she’s of age. She’ll hopefully have the maturity then to understand what she’s getting herself into if she follows in her sister’s celebrity footsteps.
Yes, teenagers are often surprisingly mature. Kendall should have every right to strut around in her bathing suit in her family’s backyard if she wants. If her mom approves, she can even wear it to the beach. But putting her in front of a fashion photographer’s camera is a whole other level.
No matter how mature she is, she’s still in the first throes of figuring out who she is. She deserves some privacy to develop her own sense of beauty and sexuality. She can’t be expected to understand that, but her parents should.
