Ugh topic just timed me out.<quoted text>Found this on some website, the name of which I can't remember, but it was about Elizabeth Smart, kidnapped and repeatedly brutalized by her captors, as a young girl... and in the news lately for her subsequent strength in her recovery. It spoke volumes about your point above:
"...Our culture deliberately socializes women to be taken in. We condition girls (explicitly! Not even covertly!) to believe that if they're not sexually attractive, they're nothing. They're garbage. They might as well not exist. We reinforce, over and over, that their attractiveness has an expiration date, so the only thing they can do is desperately leverage that attractiveness while they can. If they resist that conditioning, we sexualize them against their will, and if they give in to that conditioning or worse, if they are raped by a predator we reveal the trap: Now you're a slut, and it's your fault. Now you're tainted. Now you're worse than nothing. Now you might as well not even cry out when your rapist takes you to the gas station in a wig and sunglasses."
She's on a speaking tour, promoting the abolition of 'abstinence only' education, in favor of thorough and frank sex ed, in public schools.
Short answer I agree about the sexuslization..Hollywood and these so called celebs should be way more responsible as role models..Problem is they ARE told models.
AS fir sec ed..even the programs they have must be giving them information on what NOT to do.
But these kiddies get stuff from biology class..the net. From Tv..and judging by what I see know more about sec than I did at 30!!
BUT I am all for graphic videos of births...StDs. and abortions..(which they will never show).
SAWsomething on the web for proposed sec ed telling about G SPOTS. SORRY but really. So we want 12 year OlDs learning to get more pleasure from sec...We should want to educate them out of hook up mentalities. I mean if you have multiple partners on middle d hook...what is there left yo make you feel special.Later in life..IMHO
