Famous Children’s Photographer Slammed For ‘Sexualizing Children’

A famous photographer who has been celebrated for her pictures of children posted pictures she took of young girls that prompted criticism she had sexualized them in repellent ways.

As fstoppers.com reported, Meg Bitton had posted pictures on her Facebook page of children reportedly as young as 11 posing in their underwear, smoking, or promoting marijuana. Fstoppers noted, “Over the last few days, though, a number of photographs have been circulating the Internet for all the wrong reasons. Many are deeming that some of her recent work is highly inappropriate, largely due to the overtly sexual nature, despite her subjects being children.”

Some of the images were posted on Twitter:

According to turtelboysports.com, which took a screenshot of the post, when Bitton was criticized for the photos, she responded on Facebook, “Too young for what? To be embracing each other in shorts and tops? Too young to be out at night? Too young to explore? Too young to feel? What are they too young for? What is disgusting?”

After one person slammed Bitton, writing, “Maybe I’m old school, but this is not something that should be posted. When I was 11-12 I was playing in dirt in fields, not kissing my friends and modeling in such a way even adults shouldn’t be.”

Bitton responded, “Times have changed. Can’t pine for elder statesmen.”
