Porn Driven Look At Me Culture
June 22nd, 2007 by Mike

Here’s an article from Campus Ministry Update June 2007 published by Ivy Jungle:

“Porn Driven, Look-at-Me” Culture: The evidence of the mainstreaming of pornography is not hard to find in our culture today – from the provocative videos on YouTube to Myspace pages for adult film stars. Some researchers and observers continue to express concern over the impact on young people – particularly girls. “Sexiness” has become very important to girls, with an increasing push into raunchiness. High school counselors find themselves consoling teenage girls who have undressed and more in front of web cams. Employers are increasingly implementing dress codes. The American Psychological Association recently published a paper on the sexualization of girls. One great concern is that while boys tend to use pornography and other aspects of sex for their own pleasure; most girls who exhibit provocative behavior are doing so for the pleasure of someone else – often someone they don’t know well (or perhaps not at all thanks to the internet). Some women claim they have more power with their sexuality, but many researchers are seeing a very negative impact – especially among teenage girls. (AP June 4, 2007)

    I find this all to be all very sad! 😥 I wish young women today didn’t feel the need to to please others all the time. That is not who they are! How sad that boys too feel the need to make themselves happy in this world today with these things. I feel we are truly looking a t a lost group of people. I will continue in prayer!

    Pretty darned scary isn’t it? And to think when I was young my Grandma would say “we’re going to hell in a handbasket”. I wonder what she’d say now if she were alive.
