Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Inappropriate product placement and suggestive advertisting

First log-in - Huge Victoria's Secret Underwear ad - this is not what I was expecting and is not a positive message to teens.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much consumerism
