To answer your question, my daughter is not allowed any of that music. My kids aren't really allowed to listen to much modern pop because the lyrics are not appropriate (let alone the fact that everyone is autotuned and vapid). I don't even let them watch any of the disney channel shows, for that matter.(except for the cartoons).

I don't let my kids look at fashion magazines, either, since these types of victoria secret posings are bad for girls self image. But, to each his own, and everyone gets to make their own parenting choices.
A lot of us look to Disney because (except for their television "tween" department), they tend to respect the innocence of children.
I commend you for not allowing your children to listen to that music or watch those shows. It drives me nuts that children are listening and watching these things. When i was these kids' ages i was watching Tommy Pickles and the House of Mouse (I still watch these, on VHS tapes of course); now they are watching floating talking bras on iCarly and listening to songs talking about sex and hooking up with somebody. Granted, they dont know what they mean, but still. My thirteen year old cousin just informed me she wanted to see Project X.. I had to tell my aunt what it is about-needless to say she will not be watching the movie.

I think for most people it will just take some getting used to. The looks could be quite more provicative than they are. The dolls do look horrendous though. We all just have to see how the future plays out. They may go back to the original style one day. While I do agree they should not have changed the structures of the faces to look different, I still do not find the poses or the dressed too sexual or provocative. Especially compared to those Monster High or Winx dolls I see all over the place.

On another note:: I may actually use your quote about innocence for my research paper for my english class if you do not mind. My whole essay is on how modern fairytales compare to the originals by the Grimm Brothers and how they are now sensitizing children conpared to then. My thesis mentions the preservation of innocence and i think this would be a perfect quote
