The World Needs More Bindis and Less Mileys

6/23/2014 12:00 PM PDT, by Sarah Taylor
We haven't made it too big a secret that Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late Steven Irwin, is our teenage society heroine, but our girl just took it one step further and made us love her even harder, if that's at all possible. 

In a recent interview, Bindi slammed her contemporaries -- nicely, of course; no nastiness or backhanded compliments here, thank you very much -- and claimed that young girls essentially need to cover up (yes -- yes, they do): 

"I'm a big advocate for young girls dressing their age. I mean, for me, I look around at a lot of young girls and they're always trying to dress older. Whether it's wearing revealing clothes or hardly wearing any clothes at all, I feel really bad for them. It kind of has the opposite effect in some ways ... it kind of does the opposite where you look younger and like you're trying too hard. ... A lot of times I want to grab these girls and say ‘Look ... in 10 years you’ll regret this. Just dress like who you are. Don’t try so hard. A pair of jeans and a T-shirt is just as gorgeous and even makes you look classier’." 

Bearing in mind that this is coming from a 15-year-old girl, how sage is this advice? Totally sage. Totally appropriate, and totally important and necessary information for young girls growing up in today's society to have. With Miley Cyrus as a sister, poor 14-year-old Noah Cyrus really doesn't stand a chance

You are such a moron, and still slamming Miley Cyrus as usual. She's dressed that way ON STAGE, it's an act, dummy.

Miley is NOT Bindi's contemporary. I don't know how old and out of touch you are, but 15 and 21 are HUGELY different in EVERY WAY. ALSO if you read the quote YOU TYPED IN before finishing your "article" - you'd notice that Bindi is speaking to teenagers in HER AGE RANGE - NOT ADULTS. Did you forget that 21 is an adult?

Funny..she's right but still, something sort of nerdy about her.

Okay, Miley is older than Bindi. However, Bindi has experienced more tragedy than Miley through the death of her father. Bindis mom has done an amazing job keeping her daughter appropriate. Mileys dad basically whores his kid out at every chance he has and now there is not limit to the nasty behavior of Miley. Let's say when Bindi is Mileys age I'm positive Bindi will have continued to be a positive role model for everyone. Miley I'm positive will have been in pornos and rehab. Good for Bindi. She has kept it all together when it could have all fallen apart. I have a ton of respect for that young lady and her family.

1. Comparing Bindi Irwin & Miley Cyrus is like comparing apples & oranges...
2. While there are some things to like about Bindi let's not forget that she is being guided by her mother and a lot of what this child says is just 'for business'
3. Unfortunately these business decisions make her youth ambassador to Sea World. Need I remind you of the abuse these animals endure for entertainment & money.
4. So... No, until Bindi can actually voice her own opinion without her mom looming - I would not take stock nor encourage my daughter to 'be just like her'
5. Miley Cyrus - ehhh. May not be a roll model for youngsters but, she doesn't 'try' to be.

Wow! What a lovely, mature young lady Bindi has become. Bindi, your
Dad would be so proud of you. Kudos to Mom. Ignore the haters, you are
a true role model in every sense.
As far as Miley, geez, when I bother to read anything about her, I'm
embarrassed for her.

Bindi was an adorable child and has grown into a beautiful young woman. When she smiles, her face lights up. I loved watching her mom and dad on tv and I'm glad she is carrying on her dad's legacy of wildlife conservation.

Why are you fools sticking up for this trashy whore? You can take the girl out of Tennessee but you can't take the Tennessee out of the girl. This pig has probably had sex with her own father.

Miley Cyrus and Caitlin Stasey have prostituted themselves to get where they are.

Bindi Irwin started out trailing her Dad, but has earned widespread respect on her own.

Irwin is far more mature than her chronological elders.

She's such a little sweetheart, her dad would be so proud of her.
