We have brought this up before ourselves regarding the Webe company out of Florida that publishes online a series of teen and preteen models in various states of undress. Non-nude images of children in sexual poses is the new way to skirt authorities when pedophiles search out images to fantasize about.
Contrary to initial published stories it has been reported recently that the Dakota Fanning movie Hound Dog did not film Dakota nude, instead we are told that she wore a body stocking, reported by a spokesperson of the movie's production company. We have heard various eyewitness reports as to how she was dressed, if you can call it that, in pasties and panties and one report said she was in a strapless bikini top and panties. The news media got upset with us because we claimed Dakota was undressed. To us and several people we talked with, a flesh colored body stocking, or pasties and panties is not being dressed. It may be something Hollywierded out folk wear around the mall or school in California or even New York City but not what most of us consider being "dressed" here in Mayberry, USA.
How do you boil a frog?
To boil a frog you must place the frog into a pot filled with temperate water and gradually bring the water to a boil. Apparently you can't place a frog into a hot pot, he knows better.
Same thing with us. Little by little the temperature increases and before we know it we are cooked. Dakota Fanning's movie may not be something that disturbs everyone but then again why would it? Could it be because our 4 and 5 year old daughters that we enrolled in dance class are taught to shimmy and shake as if they were dancing for tips at Tailfeathers and we keep sending them back for more? Do we not know the difference between a Mouseketeer and a half to three quarters naked, nearly legal, Britney Spears?
How far have we come? How much farther will we go?
Some have argued that Hound Dog is the artistic expression of a sex abuse victim that has created a movie that will heal other victims thru the message in the film. The films apparent message according to the script is wait till your father dies from a snake bite rather than report the offender to authorities, seek counseling and follow through in court?
The other comment has been, very few people will find interest in this story and the movie will simply go away. Go away to where? The production company owes its investors a return on the money invested. DVD's will hit the market complete with a director's cut and added scenes that will cater to the sick and twisted. It will not be hard to package this and sell it to millions of pedophiles.
That's right I said millions. Take a look at the internet traffic on the "legal child porn" site I mentioned above. The numbers of people flocking to that site is in the millions. Most of whom are paying $30 a month to have access to it. And there is no nudity, none! Just children posing in bathing suits and revealing clothing while they arch their backs, bend over, and suck on a finger or phallic.
A DVD of the sweet, innocent, Dakota Fanning being raped, fondling a 10 year old boy, dancing about in her underwear will easily recoup the reported 5 million dollar cost to film the movie.

According to the Executive Office for United States Attorneys, total federal prosecutions of child pornography and abuse cases rose 358%, from 344 cases in FY 1995 to 1,576 cases in FY 2005, and the increase in prosecutions continues unabated. Likewise, the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) within the Department's Criminal Division increased its caseload, including child pornography cases and investigations, by more than 400% over three years.
