Sharon right on Girls Aloud

Published 13/05/2008

Recently, the Belfast Telegraph headlined the increasing sexualisation of young children and two pages further on in the same issue headlined the massive increase in sexually-transmitted diseases among our teenagers.

It doesn't take a lot of thought to realise that the two are connected.

How refreshing therefore, to read Sharon Owen's column (May 7) condemning the goings-on at the recent Girls Aloud concert, for it is precisely these kinds of 'celebrities' who are promoting the sexualisation of our young people and spoiling their childhood by so doing.

Well done, Sharon!

Keep up the good work, and may others have the courage to speak out like you.

And may parents think long and hard before taking their children to such shows.
