"he was also the product of a culture that objectifies, demeans and sexualizes women"

And yet, so many women continue to support this culture by walking the runways wearing next to nothing,(not that I mind so much), "accidentally" releasing sex tapes, posing in magazines, doing nude scenes in movies, getting naked on a live stage, doing "tell all" interviews with so called journalists, posting tons of "amateur" porn on the internet, doing nude photoshoots for PETA, appearing on television in programs like The Bachelor (meat market or what?), allowing people to do shots from their navels in bars, etc, etc, etc.
So maybe, just maybe, there is a need to educate both men AND women on the objectification and sexualization of, pretty much everyone.

Thing is, most of those fashion designers are male. Males who think that all women are wh*res and should dress like one. That all we are, are objects.
.
It is hard to find sensible modest clothing. Even at Walmart a good portion of the stuff looks like it belongs on women who strut at Lake and Hennepin Aves.
.
And it isn't just the women's wear. Unfortunately many of the girls wear is along the same lines as the women's stuff.
.
There was a study done about what men see when they see gals in skimpy stuff. They found out that men see women as sex toys when women are in skimpy clothing like bikinis.
.
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how... Science has backed parents up on this. A recent study found that showing men pictures of sexualized women evokes less activity in areas of the brain responsible for mental state attribution—that is, the area of the brain that becomes active when we think we are looking at an entity capable of thought and planned action. Other studies have found similar results. When men see body shots of women as compared with face shots, they judge women to be less intelligent, likeable, ambitious and competent.
.
http://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/wh... The next thing to note is that men are conditioned to objectify women. It’s ain’t just nature working here. In men’s culture, it’s acceptable to objectify women. Men bond around it.
For example, marketing companies prey on men who are stuck in their animal brain. We are taught over and over to see women as objects.
.
As for Elliot, from his videos on YouTube. He saw himself as "God's Gift To Women". He was expecting them to fall over their feet to praise him. He saw himself as the "Perfect Male". Dude was egotistical about his body and personality. The gals who he approached might have sensed that he was not boyfriend material. And that might have been why he kept getting turned down.

In case you haven't noticed, a big majority of those male designers are quite gay. And I understand your quandry with trying to find clothes for a young girl that are more modest. But truth be told, television, movies, and most every woman in hollywood encourage this by supporting it and walking the catwalks. THey take the parts in movies and tv shows that include skimpy clothes and sex scenes, they spend huge amounts of money on surgery to look young and sexy, they have multiple kids by multiple men, etc. And while it's true, we men are pigs, many women are happy to support and exploit that fact. And as usual, it all comes down to following the money. So it will continue as long as women let men get away with it. In her heyday, Demi Moore was getting around $20,000,000 per movie. And she would wear whatever they told her to for that kind of cash. And she is not, by any means, the exception.
