Piper Rockelle & Coco Quinn: Self-Sexualized or Sexualized Bikini Teens?

Chelsea Hirsch posted on Page Six "14-year-old YouTuber responds to Pink’s criticism of her bikini photos" (September 1, 2021). In the post, Hirsch related the Pink opined that Piper Rockelle, a 14-year-old bikini clad influencer, is being exploited by her parents:
“How many kids like Piper Rockelle are being exploited by their parents? And at what point do the rest of us say … ‘this isn’t okay for a 13 yr old to be posing in a bikini whilst her MOTHER takes the photo?!?!'”

However, Piper responded by sharing that she is living her nymphet bikini clad dream:

“The first thing I want everyone to know is that my mom doesn’t make me do anything. Quite the opposite,” Rockelle told TMZ Tuesday. “I’m a kid who had a dream, and my mom is amazing enough to help me live it out.

“I don’t think Pink has ever seen one of my YouTube videos because if she did, she’d see it’s just my friends and me having fun and acting like ourselves,” she added. “The content we make is the kind of stuff anyone can watch.”

But Fully Vaxxed Girl agreed with Pink and posted on Twitter that Piper is being sexualized:

“OMG! Had to google her, the sexualized pictures of her in Google are horrifying! I did a double take of her age 13???And her mother takes these pictures of her?? 

13-Year-Old Coco Quinn

And @CherylNapoli asked on Twitter: "And have you seen [13-year-old] Coco Quinn?!?! Equally as appalling."

However, @MaestraObrien agreed with Piper by posting that taking a picture of a child in a bikini is appropriate: “I haven’t seen anything inappropriate. Is taking a picture of your child in a bikini inappropriate?!?”

In the end, the most controversial issue raised by Piper is that she's of the (controversial) opinion that a nymphet (twerking) in a bikini is not sexual - unless you view her sexually:

“Why do we shame people for that? Pictures of teenagers in bikinis having fun are not sexual. They’re only sexual if you view us that way.”
