What is “Emma the Amish Girl”? She’s an Amish girl turned model, and quite the model she is, too! On the New American Pinup website, they introduce Emma, who is the “April girl of the month,” where you can see a photo shoot of an Amish girl with decidedly non-Amish clothing. In fact, not much clothing at all.
Some of the photos even show her in her Amish clothing, but most are without much clothing at all. They’re calling her the Bubblegum Girl. On the website you can even purchase her panties for $39. They’re calling them the “Shoo-Fly Pie Panty Pack for $39.99 + shipping; Includes: 1-Shoo-Fly Pie, Emma’s Panties (Sealed in Ziplock Bag) &
Signed Photo of Emma.” Eww.
If Emma really ever was Amish, her community would be mortified! I suppose they’d never see the photos online, but, wow. Can you say exploitation? Both of women and of the ultra-conservative religion? I guess if Emma was Amish, she didn’t come back from rum springa* (Amish “running around” time where the youth try “modern” ways, theoretically to reject them and return to the community as full members).
Emma will even be on the Howard Stern Show on Tuesday, May 11th, 7:30am-9:30am. If you want to turn in on Sirius XM Radio, it will be on Howard 100 & Howard 101.
*More info on rum springa:
“Amish parents view rum springa as a very important “faith considering,” decision making time in the lives of their offspring. And, to the disappointment, chagrin and lamenting of the church leaders, some parents do tend to “look the other way” during the rum springa period. The facts are that some of their youth do leave the sect and become members of the Mennonite church or some other more liberal Amish/Mennonite sect instead of returning for baptism. Only a very small percentage leave the “plain people” groups altogether.”
