The sexualisation of children is just plain wrong, and it is not a cultural thing in Japan. This occurs every day, in every country... and there are many people and organisations fighting this globally. Japanese parents are just as outraged and offended by the images as other parents, and those who travel and read the news know that sexualisation of women and children is a huge issue, and is not accepted in any culture. I feel global corporations should be leaders and made held accountable - we were always taught at our global firm to take "the stricter of the global and local rules". Seeing this article has made me feel sick and not want to purchase from these retailers. It makes me doubt their code of conduct - if they allow this, what else do they allow?
