I don't understand why pedophilic for these images. Perhaps because
they are idealized?

I don't find them disturbing really although "creepy" as in Stepford
wives certainly applies - as if real people had been poured into a
Barbie mold. I'd like to understand what it is about these images that
people find attractive enough to want to buy.

Sobodan invoked JanBenet Ramsey and I think, in some way, he's closer
to the mark - I guess it's "my living doll". I find the child
sex-symbols of our culture to almost incite pedophillia.

No wonder so many of us are wary of photographing children we don't know.
