WINNIFRED is a SEXY BABY (2012) or Sexualized Teen?

Here's the plot summary for Sexy Baby (2012) from IMDb:
An ex adult film star, a 12 year old girl [Winnifred Bonjean Alpart] and a 22 year old who yearns for "normal" private parts are chronicled in this thought provoking doc about how porn, social media and pop culture affect women and girls.
For the purposes of this blog, we're going to concentrate on 
Winnifred - the nymphet.

Winifred shared 
(jokingly) with her father how she gets free yellow cab rides:
Winnifred: "Dad, I've had like six cab drivers and like three of them have not made me pay." 
Dad: "What the context? He's like, 'Ah you're a nice girl."
Winifred: "No. I just blow them."

From the playscript of Facebook Me, a play developed by The Arts Effect All-Girl Theater Company, Winnifred read the following lines: 
"Dayyum. Look'in hot as hell sexy. No wonder old dude hit on your ass. See you tonight?"
At Winnifred's Bat Mitzvah, the DJ announced a dance battle between Winnifred, "a sexy thing", and her mother: 
"Whose got better moves? Mother or daughter?"
Then the DJ opined alliteratively, "I think Winni is winning [...] Damn, youse [sic] a sexy thing!"
Winnifred related that she's a member of hookup culture:
"I need to hookup with somebody. I don't wanna date them. I just wanna stick my tongue in their mouth."

Consequently, Winnifred admitted:

"We make ourselves seem like we're down to fuck. We make ourselves seem like we're up for anything." 

Winnifred's classmate posted a picture of Winnifred in a bra on Facebook. Winnifred like the post and commented:

Winnie Jessie: i look like im not wearing a bra, and thats my boob
Sage: nice boob

A number of young interviewees shared that they started watching porn in middle school and consequently sexted in high school, and Winnifred confessed that some of her middle school classmates watch porn during class: 
"If I had to say how many [middle school] guys had porn apps on their phone, I would guess 8 of 10. But I guess for [middle school] girls, it'll be like 5 out of 10."

In addition, in Porn Before Puberty?, an ABC News feature, Winnifred shared that when she was in eighth grade: 
"[..] boys mostly, were watching porn during school [...] during independent reading, they would do that."
The feature related that nine out of ten children between the ages of 8 and 16 have viewed pornography on the Internet.

Upon Winnifred's return from an eighth grade trip, her mother was shocked to see a hickey on Winnifred's neck. 
"[I'm] glad to see [that] there was all types of inappropriate conduct going on on a school trip." Winnifred replied,"Oh, trust me. You have no idea."
Anyone who has read Tom Wolfe’s Hooking Up wouldn't be shocked by Winnifred’s admission. Wolfe wrote that in high schools and junior high schools - from the plush suburbs of Washington to the underprivileged schools of the South Bronx, that there are 13 and 14-year-old girls performing fellatio on boys between classes.

Winnifred and Sexy Baby (2012) reminded me of what Brian Boyd shared from Robertson Davies in Vladimir Nabokov: The American Years. Davies opined that Lolita wasn't about: “[...] the corruption of an innocent child by a cunning adult, but the exploitation of a weak adult by a corrupt child.”

Most recently we've seen Winnifred in Slut: The Play where Joey (Winnifred Bonjean Alpart), a 16-year-old, was forcibly “fingered” in the back of a cab, but she wasn't in Netflix's Grand Army (2020) were in the pilot, Joey (Odessa A'zion) helped a high school classmate remove a condom from her vagina.
