Posle godina kritikovanja Pinka, i nacina na koji to utice na nasu decu, B92 je od svih mogucih decijih programa, na moje zaprepastenje, poceo sa emitovanjem serije Bratz.
Da li je iko od ljudi koji odlucuju o programima to pogledao, ili bi voleo da njegova cerka pronalazi sebe u nekoj od likova serije. Da li je iko pogledao kakve poruke ova serija salje, i kako junakinje izgledaju?
Odakle klincima ideje da snimaju porno filmove po WC-ima i zasto devojcice od 10 godina zele da se oblace kao prostitutke, mozda do sada je glavni razlog bio ucenje po modelu Grand Show-a, ali smece kao sto je Bratz je jos opasnije, a uz to ide i sav ostali merchendise, lutke odeca etc.

Evo Copy/Paste iskustva jedne majke, a ispod toga jedan od clanak koji sam pronasao na internetu.

QUOTE
My eldest daughter is 8, her sister almost 4. They're both going Bratz crazy at the moment!
While I know that my daughters are being brought up right, therefore are probably not likely to be harmed in any long term way, I am restricting their ownership of these dolls.
The normal ones are bad enough, with their skimpy outfits but the worst of them are the Big Bratz Babyz!
My daughter received one (Cloe) for her birthday & I was absolutely disgusted. Not only was the skirt so short that you couldn't use it to blow your nose on, underneath it, you find a see-through THONG!
I'm not even sure which aspect of that is the most disgusting - a toy aimed at very young children that introduces them to adult lingerie, or the fact that it's supposed to be a BABY. As far as I'm aware babies still wear nappies not thongs - well my 3 month old baby does anyway.
Barbie may have been controversial at times, but I don't recall her being pornographic & these dolls are on the borderline of that!


Move over, Barbie
by SONIA POULTON, Femail
As the festive season approaches, a familiar sound can be heard up and down the land. It is the tone of parents scrabbling to acquire the latest must-have toy for their hopeful offspring.

This year, I am happy to say, you can count me out of the melee because, in the words of my eightyear-old daughter, the current musthave toy is 'ugly'.

Bratz, a gaggle of girl dolls imported from America, has landed on the world stage and blown the ever-popular Barbie away with a vengeance.

Are Bratz dolls a bad influence on children? Tell us in the reader comments below

Even though it is a relative newcomers to the doll market, Bratz and its extensive merchandise range have already achieved sales of more than $1billion in the U.S., according to the New York Times, and in this country sales are soaring among suggestible eight to 14-year-olds.

In fact, eight out of ten of the topselling fashion dolls are from the Bratz range.

"Barbie led the fashion doll market until Bratz came on the scene," says Delia Bourne, marketing manager of toy giant Hamley's.

"We find that Barbie is popular with girls under six, whereas Bratz are dolls with attitude that children of today aspire to."

Although heralded for the multiculturalism of the dolls, Bratz is the realisation of what Whoopi Goldberg was referring to when she said: "White parents have no clue that their kids are being indoctrinated into ghetto values and culture."

Sadly, the Bratz girls are the embodiment of this apeing of hip-hop fashion with their revealing clothes, trout pouts and heavily accentuated eyes on top of the standard large breasts and tiny waists.

An American pressure group, Concerned Women Of America, has already voiced its unhappiness at the dawning of the Bratz doll.

Hooker chic

Janice Shaw Crouse, Ph.D, a recognised authority in the U.S. on domestic issues and women's concerns, describes their look as 'hooker chic' based on their physical appearance and the sheer skimpiness of their outfits.

"These Bratz dolls all obviously make regular trips to the plastic surgeon for collagen lip injections. And their make-up on dolls targeted at eight to 14-year-olds, would make a Broadway performer feel underdone," she says.

Bratz, scarily, is the dominant option for the young, impressionable minds who flock to buy their every product from Bratz Stylin' Dance Mat, Bratz Scorchin' Sea Scooter, Bratz Dynamite Motorcycle, Bratz Make Me Up board game - this is merely a taster of an extensive, and lucrative, range.

The Bratz invasion has also recently seeped into satellite and cable TV with its own show.

While some may celebrate the passing of Barbie, it's obvious that Bratz is far from the ideal replacement. The most important goal in life, as the Bratz logo proclaims, is to have 'a passion for fashion'.

Forget ambition. Forget having a career. Everything, apart from fashion, is a pale imitation of living. What an extraordinarily limiting and lazy message to send out to our young girls. It is disturbing on a number of levels. I am discouraged by the continual sexualisation of pre-pubescent girls. Bratz and countless other brands trot out the same old 'be pretty and everything else will follow' line.

It patronises pretty girls and excludes those who are not so aesthetically pleasing.

Aside from strange physicality and provocative outfits, I am concerned about the values Bratz is instilling in the next generation of young women. I speak from experience having survived the pressures of Barbie.

For little girls, a doll is not just a piece of pretty plastic. This toy will hold their dreams and their confidences and will influence them, no matter how subtly. Or not so subtly, as in the case of the surgically-enhanced Barbie Babes.

The girl next-door

As a child, I was a Sindy Girl. Sindy was Barbie's arch rival and represented, to me at least, substance versus the superficial.

Sindy was the girl-next-door who was as adept at climbing a tree as she was at sitting in her doll's house reading poetry. In short, she was my kind of girl.

Barbie, however, symbolised utter meaninglessness with her immaculate nails and bleached-blonde hair. I loathed her with a passion. Imagine my horror, then, when my daughter became a Barbie fan at four.

It quickly developed into an obsession that called for her to obtain every piece of Barbie merchandise going (pushchair, torch, flask, clothes, camera, blow-up bed and associated videos) and with me in something akin to a daze buying these objects for her (or encouraging others to buy them for her birthdays and Christmas).

I was relieved when she moved on from Barbie, as I could see no good coming from the association.

Having escaped relatively unscathed from one unsavoury fad, I view the Bratz trend with scepticism. Children deserve more than this vision of a world where the aspiration is to be a prom queen and the brain is asked to consider little more than how to attract boys.

Thankfully, my daughter is developing a Bratz-free independent mind and I pray this will see her through pressures to conform. We are de-sensitising our boys to violence with computer games and encouraging our girls to wear clothes that wouldn't be out of place on a pole dancer. I owe my daughter more than that.

In a world where today's toys can influence the actions and attitudes of tomorrow's adults, I pray for a toy manufacturer to bring us something truly innovative.

A doll, for example, that desires academic or spiritual achievement as opposed to the constant barrage of hackneyed symbolism for our children.

Toys, in short, that challenge the status quo, and its inherent stereotypes, and do not reinforce them. Now those, I'd be first in the queue for.

u svakom slučaju, ne znam koja je razlika između Barbi i Brac?
jednako su glupe obe.
Barbi je samo svojim "stajlingom" izašla iz mode, a preuzele su primat napumpane frajle, mršavice, preterano našminkane i neukusno obučene.
ako malo bolje pogledate, sve viđenije frajle izgledaju kao one, to je jedan sled svih okolnosti koje nam se dešavaju (nam=ljudima).
ja sam svojim devojkama objasnila razliku između ekrana i stvarnog života, tako da nemam problem sa tim. mislim da Brac serija ne bi bila najgore što gledaju na TV-u. pritom mislim na ekstremno užasne crtane filmove kanala Jetix, pa opet to je samo crtani film i ništa više.
nisam gledala pomenutu seriju, to je samo još jedno srozavanje TV B92 (radiju svaka čast još uvek), ali novac je novac. i opet da napomenem, nije to najgore što se viđa na tv-u...
ne možete dete samo staviti ispred tv-a i gotovo! morate objasniti sve, jer dečija percepcija je manje selektivna od percepcije odrasle osobe i sve doživljava na drugi naćin.
moja deca imaju i Barbike i Brac lutke, i ogromnu glavudžu Brac za šminkanje i friziranje, pa nisu opsednute time na taj način. mislim, pokušavam da im ukažem na prave vrednosti, ali ne zabranjujući im bilo šta, već stavljajući sve na svoje mesto. oduševim se recimo kad naprave posteljinu za lutke od toalet-papira.
dakle, nisu kriva deca...

Ma meni su stimpi i ren bili heav
Pa dobro sta ima veze. I nas B92 se polako komercijalizuje. Takva su vremena dosla. Mene je iznenadilo mnogo toga u programima B92... recimo ona emisija karaoke ili tako nesto - obicno majmunisanje.

Da je to tako govori i primer one voditeljke B92 sto vodi ono 123 na radiju. Sada je ta ista pozajmila glas za reklamiranje novog ustava Srbije.
