OOh Ocean...you are so clueless as to hos things have changed over the years. While boys have always pressured girls to have sex, today the girls are just as bad. When i wss a teen, my gf had a huge crush on my brother. She propositioned him for years. My brother, although attracted to her and tempted, was turned off by her aggressive behaviour. I dated a guy for a short time in HS whk didn't have sex with anyone. We got along great. He was very handsome and i recall many girls from his school chasing him. When we broke up, a girl who was very popular got him to date her. She had her eye on him and told me flat out that he'd be hers. They dated and told me that she was going to demand sex from him. She got it.<quoted text>
REALLY. Got any statistics to back up your rather lame assertion? Get back to me when you find some, and NOT some biased "statistics" from some faith-based site.
Sorry, G (not really), I'm just not buying your "it's the girls pressuring the guys into having sex" line. And you will NEVER convince me that teen pregnancy and teen motherhood is a good thing for girls, especially those who have had drug and alcohol problems as teenagers. As far as I'M concerned, there's NOTHING good about getting pregnant and having a baby as a teenager. All it does is rob girls of good education and good employment, leaving them dependent, on either their parents or the government, for support.
The way I see it, teen sex is a BAD IDEA, and a teen girl is much better off by DUMPING any guy who pressures her to have sex. Guys who pressure girls for sex aren't worth keeping around as boyfriends.
For years my sons have been telling me how crazy girls are today. They are super aggressive and push hard for sex. My sons sre turned off by it. Its like girls act like the guys once did-looking for a quick bootie call. Its very hard for my sons to stay sex free when girls throw themselves at guys.
SOMETHING is definately wrong. I tell them that the young are desperately searching for ANY attention..ANY form of love or to be wanted. They can't judge them. But it is difficult to stay...um..sex free today.
I worked i a HS and was very close to the students. Shockingly, i found girls to be very over sexed. I had many conversations with my own to see the similarity in their peers. One pretty 10th grader used to tell me that she was horny and wanted to score. I became a therapist instead of staff with these kids. I was in my early 30s at the time so they felt free to talk to me. They didnt see that i was a mother of older kids until my kids visited me there. I learned MUCH there as to the minds and party scenes from these kids and my kids new it. They knew that i knew MUCH. Everywhere we went i ran into those kids while with my own. The kids would hug me, jump on my back...fill me in on their lives and my kids thought it was strange and funny.
Needless to say,we have a real problem in society today. Kids are exposed to sex on tv...movies....parents bad examples of hooking up with gf/bf ..... Giving BC to them isnt the answer. Addressing the core problem is. Parents need to be better examples. MANY are absent from the home(a deep problem that many kids shared with me...which left them feeling abandoned and misguided).
