In November 2012 the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was one of the most watched and most talked about in the history of the brand . It was the launch of their “PINK LINE” and what they called “MAGIC”. Bieber back then was the tweenie & teen heartthrob and was idolized by girls as young as 8 years old. He performed at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November 2012, making it one of his first adult gigs after turning 18 only a few months before the fashion show. Needless to say that Fashion Show exponentially broadened the target market of Victoria’s Secret after than show.
According to VOX Leslie Wexner is the founder, chair, and CEO of L Brands, the Ohio-based conglomerate that owns Victoria’s Secret, Pink, and Bath & Body Works, and has spin off brands like Abercrombie & Fitch. He’s worth $4.8 billion, according to Forbes, and for at least a decade he was Epstein’s only publicly known client. Every single MSM outlet also makes it a point to note that Wexner is not involved in the global pimp’s child rape market. Is that REALLY true?
Were Epstein and Wexner simply business partners? It seems that Epstein and Wexner had more than just a business relationship. A victim of Epstein’s says different. Maria Farmer an aspiring artist was promised work as an art collector in 1995 but she ended up being Epstein’s Upper East Side “bouncer” and taking names of all guests. She said that in 1996, Epstein had supposedly set up an art project for her to work on at Leslie Wexner’s mansion in New Albany, Ohio. Farmer stated that it was at Wexner’s property that Maxwell and Epstein sexually assaulted her. Farmer stated that when she tried to leave the property with her two younger brothers that were with her Wexner’s security team refused to let her leave and her father had to drive from Kentucky to retrieve them.
In 2013 Wexner’s Chief Financial Officer Stuart Burgdoerfer spoke at a conference describing why young girls are ditching training bras and getting lingerie. He described WHY it’s appealing to little girls:
They want to be older, and they want to be cool like the girl in college, and that’s part of the magic.CFO Stuart Burgdoerfer Limited
What Victoria’s Secret called “magic” is was hyper-sexualization of children. If indeed they were targeting 15 and 16 year old girls then the sizes wouldn’t be small enough to fit children as young as 8. Besides, if they weren’t targeting tweenies they wouldn’t have had Bieber performing at their shows since 2012 and until he lost luster.
The launch of Bright Young Things in the Spring of 2013 was the largest backlash from the mommy bloggers ever received by a brand.
The underwear targeted for teens and tween had many suggestive phrases on them and also promoted the use of thongs. Why would a 12-14 year old need to wear a thong?
Calling girl’s in their tweens things and objectifying them was a concern too. “Campaigns like this encourage girls to think of themselves as objects and not as full-fledged humans with ideas and feelings” said Dana Udall-Weiner, a Santa Fe, N.M., psychologist who works with girls on body image in an interview with Time Magazine back in 2013.
Why in the world would tweens and teens wear undies that declare “Dare You,” “Call Me” or “Feeling Lucky?” or “After Party” and t-shirts saying “Enjoy the View”?
When NBC’s TODAY show reported on the “Bright Young Things” product launch, the reporter said: “The latest campaign features underwear too racy to show here.” Obviously, if underwear for tweens and teens is too racy for daytime TV it shouldn’t be made for tweens and teens.
Over sexualizing children is not just by pushing lingerie. Many retailers do this around the world. In 2017 a fashion show put on in China made global headlines of outrage making it seem like something new. It’s incredible how we forget the global outrage nude teenagers n posters in 2002 sparked.
Wexner’s mansion in Ohio is located in New Albany, where the headquarters of his “spin off” retail company resides. He didn’t create the the company he encompassed it under his L – Brand umbrella. There are many such brands and as stated it’s not just Victoria’s Secret that targets children .. Abercrombie & Fitch, also have come under fire. Back in 2002 Abercrombie & Fitch, angered many consumer advocacy groups with its summer and Christmas catalogs showing sexually provocative teenage-looking models apparently in the nude.
Since their re-vamp by Wexner, Abercrombie & Fitch have been recalling racist, derogatory and over sexualized apparel for tweens and teens. IN fact their 2009 BACK TO SCHOOL collection of graphic tees was atrocious. One t-shirt for girls had a picture of a girl flashing two men with her blouse open and the words “Show the Twins” on it. Their Back-To-School line was making sex more mainstream and part of tween and teen recreation.
Abercrombie & Fitch were a concern as Gene Ellerbee, VP of West Coast Operations for NCPCF had said to Seattle PI. The National Coalition for the Protection of Children & Families (NCPCF) had collected anecdotal evidence of teens as young as 13 or 14 purchasing the magalog. The BACK TO SCHOOL magazine of 2003 is below. How would you feel knowing tweenies are reading that?
Wexner, the mega donor and investor to Epstein and retail magnate whose brands have repeatedly targeted young children. CNN had done a great job expressing fears that parents had back in 2013 in this article demonstrating many Wexner brands that sexualize children.
A stay at home father told CNN what his experience was like going shopping for a bathing suit for his 7-year-old daughter. “There was a lot of string and barely any material.”
Sexualizing children is not just about clothes, marketing and Hollywood influence. It’s the most effective way as children always love to mimic and feel “current” and modern. The new wave of normalizing sex among children is obfuscated under something called “GENDER IDENTITY”. Why would children in kindergarten have to be taught about gender and how THEY have a say on their sexual preference? The younger children are introduced to the concept of sex the younger they become sexually active.
What’s the concern? Conditioning and normalizing the the sexualization of children is horrific but the million dollar question is WHY?
SUPPLY & DEMAND
After all Epstein didn’t fly on jets and choppers around the world and even using jets owned and or operated by the State Department and Central I Agency for nothing. He provided the supply where there was demand. Wexner along with Hollywood, the Main Stream Media, toy manufacturers (i.e. Bratz), other retailers and Ad agencies all helped prime youth to be OPEN to recruitment with one ultimate goal. Objectifying children in order to normalize promiscuity in prepubescent and adolescents.
Thank You El Chapo!
Did you know the former President of Mexico’s son was the Head of the NXIVM chapter in Mexico? Weinstein also had direct contacts with El Chapo, after all Sean Penn found him before Interpol did right. Epstein would impose himself in Chapo’s territory too. I guess now that they are 3 Doors Down from each other in cells at the Manhattan Correctional Center. Their Kryptonite is evident. POWER for Epstein but it’s family for Chapo that’s why he cultivated his singing voice.
