Is pornography changing how teens view sex?

There are 7 comments on the The Toronto Star story from Apr 22, 2013, titled Is pornography changing how teens view sex?. In it, The Toronto Star reports that:

"It's not about healthy relationships, and I think if a teen is seeing those messages over and over again, it does have an impact." The crimes are shockingly similar: an inebriated victim, a group of teenage boys committing sexual assault and then, to the horror of all, photos and videos of the crime recorded and distributed for everyone to see.

An interesting article and one every parent should read. I'm not sure about the author's comment about pornography consumption at the highest and rape cases being down. Teens are not the 'innocents' they once were prior to this kind of poisoning. Children have been stripped of their innocence through voluntary or involuntary exposure to porn. Human trafficking is a growing dirty business which is rarely discussed. Young girls are far more likely to have sex because of the influences from the media AND the Internet. Parents do not supervise their kids the way they should because they are either clueless or too busy to care.

You may want to get a job because your obsession is very creepy. Just because you use hundreds of puppets, doesn't mean others do. I did a little experiment with someone's moniker to measure the degree of your illness. My suspicions were correct. You must live here 24/7 and use proxies! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

You are crazy. Are you one of the rapists? Or the rapist's parent or grandparent? You can actually form complete sentences, so I don't think you're one of the rapists. I know that you have been a one-person campaign against the victim in this case, and if her attorney cares to trace all your posts, you could be sued successfully. You might also be prosecuted for stalking and harassment. Your use of proxy servers shows your intent to stalk and harass by making it appear others have the same sick thoughts about the victim you do. At this point, after going through your past posts, I think I know who you might be, too. Tea Party, Carmel, when ONE of the people involved in this case is mentioned in particular, you go crazy with the spam votes and ugly posts, some of your posts about Trayvon Martin. If you are who I think you are, it wasn't hard to figure out. I sincerely hope you are served with a subpoena soon.

You are certifiably insane. I have no clue who Jane Doe is. How can anyone stalk and harass someone who is anonymous? No doubt you are a liberal kook who dreams to use the courts to punish those who disagree with your views. Thank you for revealing the intent of the liberal extremists like yourself. I have discussed the culture behind teenage behaviors and the problems associated with binge drinking. For some reason, you take this as a personal assault against a Jane Doe. Your bullies brought her case to the public. You brought it to Topix to discuss using numerous sock puppets to defend your view. Maybe you have a more nefarious reason to bring her case to the public. Maybe you hope to influence people who may be able to affect the outcome of a lawsuit for the purpose of satisfying your vindictive agenda. I have no idea but I do know you are very ignorant and hateful. No doubt you are mad because I have some very valid points that get in the way of your agenda. You need to quit bullying juveniles. You are real scum for doing it. I will stand up to people like you all day long. I don't need to have a 'dog in the fight'. Anyone who has kids should not tolerate your behavior. Jane Doe had her day in court. She won. The boys have received their punishments and yet you continue to spew your hateful rhetoric about anyone and everyone who has been touched by this case.....including innocent readers in this thread, like myself.

Like I said, good luck with everything. Catch you on the flip flop.

A simple Google search would yield an infinite number of deplorable sites for adults as well as teens to access. This kind of filth sets the pace and attitude society has towards women. It also serves as another something for girls to emulate which becomes problematic when they engage in that kind of behavior. It's this attitude towards women that muck up the behaviors of drunken teens who think it's funny and entertaining to take pictures of passed out peers without thought of the human being behind their camera lens. While it may be easy for some to point their bony fingers at these boys for their atrocious behavior, they are more than likely hypocrits themselves. If they watch any movie these days, a woman or girl is being treated with disrespect in subtle ways. Hollywood makes billions off boobs and butt. They produce movies where boys behave badly and the girls are lovin' it. God knows they don't want anyone chasing their tails over the way girls and women are portrayed. The gay agenda does seem to push women's issues forward, however. The double standard still exists which somewhat conflicts with gender equality. So now we have this ongoing faux war on women trend going. The libs are finding cases like Jane Doe so they can get women to unite on the liberal front. Gays are jumping on this as it will help them with their agendas so they will begin forming more alliances. I love the gay anti rape video from Arizona. Who were they kidding? The vast majority of men will NOT rape women...and we certainly know GAY men won't. There are always going to be a few deviants within any social group, women included.

This Girls Gone Wild franchise started this trend and now people have smart phones and they don't need to pay for this kind of exploitation which could explain why the guy is in bankruptcy now. You can see how popular his videos were by looking at his long list of 'productions'.

Cases like Steubenville happen all around this country due to societal influences, poor parenting, technology, lack of supervision, drugs, alcohol, etc. This is an issue that requires education because it is difficult to change the variables. You can't make lazy parents attentive or kids that want to get pounded, sober. Good parents understand there is a lot of bad out there and must arm their kids with the best defenses which includes making sure they come home at a decent hour EVERY night.
