I was surprised and delighted to read that many college girls are finally learning that they hold value, that their bodies arent little playthings for slobbering and sweaty young men, and that giving themselves over for one night stands comes with an emotional price that often lingers for a long time. Its not been a popular message these days in high schools or college campuses, as more often than not, weve seen young people tossed candy-flavored condoms and sent off with a wink.
The songs, shows and movies our youth watch and listen to glorify sexual promiscuity without consequence. It starting at an incredibly young age now. Most parents these days are completely clueless and dont take the time to sit down and watch the teeny-bopper shows that their pre-teens are watching which promotes serious relationships, often very physical, at young and inappropriate ages. Television shows and movies that are popular among my kids ages are often not allowed in my home because I know my sons life-long moral values and convictions are already being formed and influenced, right now, by what he is exposed to. Im not always the cool mom when it comes to popular teen and teeny-bopper culture and games because I know garbage that goes in, is garbage that eventually comes out.
Im often shocked and amazed by the junk that parents feed the young minds of their children. Pour in bad gas to a high powered car engine and you are going to have a car that doesnt run properly for very long. Eat a steady diet of hot dogs and donuts and youll have a body that will break down and not live to old age. Why dont we consider the same thing for our children and youths minds? Remember, as a man THINKETH, so IS he.
Add to that the loose attitudes we have towards sex in this hyper-sexualized society, teaching our kids that if you are going to have sex, just wear a condom. We put emphasis on protecting their bodies but we are failing their spirits, their emotions and their hearts. And more than promoting safe sex most of these programs are just promoting more sex.
Those who preach AGAINST teaching abstinence might as well be handing their 17 year-old a 6 pack of beer while issuing them a warning to wear their seatbelt. We dont tell our kids that they shouldnt drink and drive but IF THEY DO, just be sure and wear a seatbelt. We FIRMLY preach DONT DRINK and DRIVE! Period.
Pregnancies and abortions are only rising among our girls with one in every three babies being born out of wedlock and STDs are rising to epic proportions with over 3 Million kids infected. With only a quarter of federal funding going towards abstinence funding, I think its a safe assumption that only preaching Safe Sex isnt working very well for our kids. Abstinence is the only way to insure no pregnancy, no abortions, no teenage mothers, no STDs.
More than anything, this needs to be taught in the home. Kids who have a firm grounding in moral values at home can combat and arent as easily influenced by what they are told out of the home that just isnt right.
Dads need an awakening in this country towards their daughters. You are the most important man in your daughters life. Girls need their dads attention, love and affection so that they dont go searching for it from some hormone-crazed boy. They need to be loved on and told by their dads that they are priceless, that their bodies are precious, and that their virginity is something that can only be given once. They need to understand that there are consequences to treating themselves without respect, that handing themselves off from boy to boy can create lasting emotional damage that can take years to heal.
Moms need to pay more attention. We are usually home the most, we have instincts about what is going on in our kids lives that we need to use more and act on when we see something isnt right. Dont be afraid to make an unpopular choice with your kids and your teenagers and turn the shows and movies off that promote behavior you wouldnt want to see your own kids engaged in. Help them choose their friends wisely. Teach them to think critically, to question authority in a right way. They will thank you for it later. I know I did. I can clearly remember the battles I fought with my parents but they engaged in a fight that they knew was worth fighting and how I appreciate it today.
These college girls, referred to in the above article, hold some of the emotional scars Ive referred to. They bought into the storyline that you can give yourself away over and over, without consequence, and they found it to be a lie. Many on college campuses across the country are making choices, taking stands and reclaiming their bodies and self-respect. I can admire these young women and hope that their voices and actions reach out to their peers and make a difference in this world.

Is that your real name? No offense, but it sounds like a pr0n star name. :O)
40-50 years of attempted brain washing, conditioning and propaganda have left a horrible scar on hearts, souls and American families -— but praise God - He said He writes His truth on our hearts so we would know right from wrong and I hope and pray people and all these young women kick the lies to the curb and save themselves for their one true/faithful lover/friend/husband who will be with them when the are old, gray, wrinkled and waiting on the porch for the grand kids to come.
I think daily about leaving this job b/c it makes me feel so hopeless about the future of our country...
Real name...but I would definitely expect the question from someone who had to be a “library user” to access a computer. Thanks for asking!!
Don’t leave it! You sound like a beacon of light in an otherwise hopeless world! Use it to your advantage!
hmmmm.... integrity? ; )
“their bodies arent little playthings for slobbering and sweaty young men,...”
I take some offense to this generalization of men. I have to admit to having offended plenty of “girls” by not “moving fast enough” in relationships. As a result, I think that both “boys” and “girls” lack the maturity to understand the ramifications of their indescretions. When (if?) they become men and women they will see the error of their ways.....
You only need to take offense if you fall in that catagory. I know lots of young men who don’t and didn’t. And if you offended plenty of girls “by not moving fast enough” in a relationship- you might want to reconsider the girl. Just my two-cents!
Btw, I do believe you are right in that they fail to understand the ramifications... that’s where parents need to step up and I talked about that in my article. Thanks for all the comments!

I don’t see any way this generation makes it into middle age and beyond without massive impacts on their health. I could even see life expectancy going down in the future because of the eventual toll of repeated exposure to a huge amount number of pathogens and assaults on the immune system.
I once read an article where the researcher said that having sex with one person was like having sex with all the people that person had had sex with. Each encounter potentially left a “calling card.” Not so much an infection, but more subtle things that a person carried and could pass on.
When anything perverse (such as sleeping around) becomes mainstreamed, the push continues to find a new way to make what is mainstreamed perverse.
Thank-you! I try to talk to people who will listen, there are a few of us here who are see what is happening. I’m no prude but it is difficult when parents just don’t seem concerned about the trends on campus...weird to me!
It’s been hip and trendy on college campuses for the past 15 years to be lesbian or bisexual. Nuf said.
Yes. More than cancer, each exposure to bodily fluid has the potential to impact the immune system by switching on certain genes, starting a cascade that results in various blood proteins being created and so on. The number of diseases that are impacted by environmental exposures is stunning.
“Free” sex is not free.
mark for later
