    Over sexualization of teenage characters in tv shows.

    Has the over sexualization of teenage characters in tv shows gone to far? The argument of whether it’s glamorizing unacceptable behaviour and provocative themes for the young fans? Or trying to show the reality of what the lives could be for children at such a young age?

    • As the tag you have used Riverdale, which is an interesting choice, as it is not necessarily on the top of the list I would consider for sexualisation of teenagers. I would have perhaps put something like Gossip Girl, Skins, or The OC, etc. I think, however, that this is an interesting topic and would require a good discussion of what is sexualisation and what is sexual-representation of teenage behaviour. I think a good part of this discussion is in the look at the relevant viewer ages of such shows, the target demographic, etc. But also then a necessary part of the conversation needs to be that now with internet streaming and Netflixs, why does it matter if teenagers are presented in a sexualised manner when it seems most teens are actually watching shows such as Game of Thrones? – SaraiMW 6 years ago
    • It might be a completely different ball-park at this point, but you should check out some of the controversy surrounding the currently airing anime: "My Hero Academia" and it's representing of it's central teenage characters. Here is a good brief write-up of one person's frustrations: I know Japan is an entirely different culture and it may not be exactly what you're looking for, but considering how often the 15-year-olds on the show end up being top-less or in swimsuits it is troubling and could serve as an interesting alternate example for you to present. It's definitely an interesting topic though, as Riverdale does have some troubling tendencies as a series. I can't wait to see whatever you come up with! – BioLizard 6 years ago

    As someone who first picked up the Harry Potter series as a child and continued to go back to it for a read growing up, my opinions on characters have changed dramatically. I think its something that comes with age and understanding peoples motives and emotions. Re-reading the stories and being able to understand the characters with a higher knowledge and understanding helped to appreciate those who I once couldn’t. One of those characters being Draco Malfoy.

    As a huge lover of cats I saw this and I had to give it a read. As a person who likes to draw I find myself using my cats as inspiration. Some of this was definitely very interesting to read.

    Definitely caught my attention. I can see where you’re coming from and I wouldn’t 100 percent disagree with all of the names you’ve included to this list. I may have a few different views and outlooks on this topic. especially with comparing the old times and new ones of Disney. interesting article tho!
