I didn't get that at all. What did I miss? I got that a little girl said she wanted to have sex with a little boy, and people are freaked out. If there was something else there, can you point me to it? Calling it a proposition is weird. She may have meant she wants to hug him or kiss him or bump bellies (literally). Children interpret stuff like this through their filters, not ours. I'm aware that people are using the word to suggest a more mature attitude...but that doesn't mean that the 5 year old girl in question has that attitude.
And, again...I don't know what "big picture" you're all talking about. I don't see any "big picture". I see a little girl who sounds as though she's watched a little too much adult tv and/or overheard a few conversations she shouldn't have, and who likes to be "pretty". There have been references to the red flag of precocious sex play. What sex play? She lifted her shirt "like a stripper". What does that even mean? Slowly? "Teasingly"? DD has done that...at the same age. It meant nothing. DD hasn't even been exposed to anything like that on tv...I think she may have picked it up from a cousin who watches a lot of tv, but I don't know, and I'm not worried about it. What other "sex play" has there been? About the only thing the OP mentioned, aside from the "babysitting" of her little brother, that doesn't apply to dd is the comment about adult spanking...and I could easily see her saying something that off the wall. (DS1 once answered the phone, at about 2, with "what do you want, and make it snappy, 'cause I'm drunk. I don't think he'd ever seen a drunk person and I have no idea where he got that.) This isn't about taking it personally, because dd likes to look pretty. It's about the fact that I can easily see dd in the girl in the OP, as described (aside from clothing, maybe, and at least half the little girls in this complex dress in clothes that I feel are too "mature" for them), and I'm feeling pretty icked out at the idea that people in our complex may be talking about her strutting around like a stripper, or how seductive she is.
Ick - I mean really - ick.
No - we're looking at a "big picture" that includes...being a "miniature super model", "seductively" removing her top in front of neighbourhood boys, "strutting", "propositioning" a neighbour boy and making an very off-colour comment about adult spanking. I guess I just don't see the picture the rest of you do.
And, I'm saying that it doesn't sound fishy to me, and that the way the little girl is being talked about here turns my stomach. It's a very sexual way to talk about a little girl.
Because it sounds like it from your posts, and that is a bit naive.
