CWA Warns that “Girls Gone Wild” Leads to “Girls with Regrets”
Concerned Women for America ^ | 3/9/06 | Concerned Women for America

Posted on 03/11/2006 1:46:04 PM PST by wagglebee

Washington, D.C. — Concerned Women for America (CWA) pleads with young women across the country to take caution and safety measures as they enter the spring break season. The American Medical Association released a study which says that 83 percent of college women admit that spring break involves increased consumption of alcohol, and 74 percent said the break is a time to indulge in sexual activity.

“The danger of spring break is that students have an attitude that ‘anything goes’,” said Dr. Janice Crouse, CWA’s Senior Fellow of the Beverly LaHaye Institute. “The idea that this vacation has no consequences is a frightening and naive mindset. Reckless conduct always has consequences and young people need realize their vulnerabilities and show responsibility.

“Spring break is a week away from reality for students across the nation, but it does not negate the fact that STDs are real consequences and that excessive alcohol leads to risky behavior.

“Tragic stories of girls who mysteriously ‘disappear’ or horrible things happening to unsuspecting victims should alarm us and be a warning to high school and college girls looking for a good time. Participating in wild behavior on spring break dramatically increases the risk of crime and undesirable outcomes. My prayers go out to young girls as they enjoy the carefree tradition of spring break. While they will be tempted to lay caution and responsibility aside, I challenge them to enjoy a delightful, ‘fun in the sun’ break from school, while still maintaining integrity. I hope they will make wise decisions, show discernment, and respect their bodies.”

It's high time that young people learned that lifestyles have consequences.

Heard a story about a young gal, the daughter of an acquaintance of mine. She was on one of them video's doing disgusting things with another girl. When the video came out and she was found out by the entire small town in which she lived, she comitted suicide.

These people, the adults AND kids need to understand that there are consequences to their actions.

I always worked every single day during spring break when I was in college. It really helped pay the bills because no one else was around to work and I could throw in tons of overtime.

I completely agree, and so does her father even though he's never gotten over it....nor do I think he will.

I would like to know how and why the Girls Gone Wild infomercials are allowed on basic cable TV. They are far and away the most sexually explicit things on TV, with emphasis on lesbian action. I suspect that most of the people that would take action on such things don't even know it's on general cable and available to any kids that may be up then.

never went to spring break.
never really understood the appeal.
besides - i don't much like sunlight.

aside from that, I must admit that those commercials for the various "GGW" et alia videos make me very, very sad. those poor, stupid kids.

It is entirely possible that she was concerned about what she did. It also possible she was concerned about how she would be treated by the small town in question.

Sometimes the way we treat the sinner is worse than the sin.

Anyone who thinks the young women involved in these spring break freak outs are little naive innocent things should collect more data on what goes on at spring break.

Personally when I was in college, I was flat broke and working like a fool in a technical major. The thought of going to some resort on spring break was unthinkable. Didn't have the money and didn't have the time. I can recall working long hours on academics on some vacations.

To this day (30 years later), I have never gone to any of those resorts on any vacation of any kind.

It's all a sign of a melt down on the basic American work ethic that is no more.

I never went on Spring Break during college.

I had the money. I had the time. But never did it.

Instead, I worked and hung out with my friends who also didn't go on Spring Break.

A couple of my friends went and they had mixed comments. They said that no matter where they went, that the bars were always packed shoulder to shoulder and that the drinking wasn't all that cheap.

Still going strong and looking for a "party" at 4am. It's possible that a stimulant...coke or ecstasy...may have had something to do with this.

They are hardly any worse than daytime soaps or the average show on Univision. Doesn't mean I'd be proud to see my daughter on one, though.

Both beer and party girls are God's creations.

And they have both been around for millenia.

I had never seen one of those commercials until I was up late one night with my newborn. I was pretty shocked that that type of thing was allowed on the air. And I don't think there's any way to block it since it's a commercial. Disgusting.

Maybe the sheer excitement of being away from home and overprotective parents is a stimulant.

Some very sage advice my father gave me when I was growing up;

"Nothing good happens after midnight!"

I gave the same advice to my teenaged children as they were growing up.

Very sage advice...

...or Black Entertainment Television. I tuned into a documentary of sorts on VH1, I believe, about the "models" that appear in those rap videos. The group I saw featured were some dumb bunnies from a strip club. The pimps that put them in the video didn't even pay them and the girls were too ignorant to know how badly they were being used. They seriously thought they were getting a big break by wiggling and gyrating their bare a$$es for the camera. It was sad.

I've never understood how a girl can consider the whole Spring Break thing, where one gets laid and discarded, the definition of "a good time". They're being used, they know it, and go do it anyway. How depressing.

Hey, y'know what--you're only young once. Personally, I regret never having gone down to Spring Break when I was in college. I was a straight arrow then and I'm a responsible adult now--doing great with no real complaints. But sometimes I wish I'd have taken the opportunity to have had more fun along the way.

As to the girl who killed herself, she may have had other issues besides the video. She lived in America--things couldn't have been that bad.

I was going to say that but I wasn't sure it was true for me. Truth is, as a "straight arrow," that scene just wasn't you so why regret? Might regret not having taken a chance to travel places but to be immersed in the throngs and orgies that typify Spring Break? No thanks.

I know plenty of college students who've had wonderful times during spring break - great parties, great sex, no regrets - and I can safely say that since it all happened 40 years ago.

I sure don't remember spring break being that big of a deal back when I was in college. Of course, it was JC and I lived in a relatively small town, maybe that was the reason.

We did know how to party, though, and thankfully, nothing too bad ever happened, cuz we were young and dumb.

No, that's not the reason. For most students - everywhere and at all times - it isn't that big a deal. "Girls Gone Wild" is not representative of the college population.

Its just the way morals are today. The genie is out of the bottle. My neighbors are good people and I watched their daughter come of age. She is 20 now and sports a 'Rolling Stones Tongue' just above the crack on her behind. Pretty obvious when she wears her bikini. Go figure.

A hearty second from another lifelong happy 'straight arrow/stick-in-the-mud' ... no regrets here at all! On the contrary, I'm genuinely grateful that I managed to avoid that whole scene.

For me, the regrets would've been if I had gone down that path ... not because I avoided it. Nice to know there are others who feel the same :)

You're right, of course. I don't remember even hearing about such a thing as a spring break, though. It wasn't a concept I was familiar with until about the last few years or so, watching news on TV with college kids swarming the streets and bars and wreaking havoc.

That's really become commonplace, hasn't it? I heard an anesthesiologist quoted to the effect that if a gal has a tattoo in that area, she'd better hope she never needs an epidural. Something to do with more likelihood for infection, as well as the doctor not knowing the makeup of the ink.

Makes sense, and I'm kinda surprised you don't hear this more often.

Yes, BET is incredible. My cousin let her daughter watch that cr@p all afternoon when the daughter came home from school. The kid (age 16) put down her books and sat and watched it for hours. Her mother never said a thing.

It was horrible. Made all black women look like hoes.
