sex.

20 Feb

A recent study shows that the highly sexual nature of today’s media harms young girls’ mental and physical health.

Ummm, duh?

Examples of harmful media images, according to a American Psychological Association task force:

  • Young pop stars dressed as sex objects

  • Dolls aimed at young girls with sexual clothing such as fishnet tights

  • Clothing, such as thongs, for seven to 10-year-olds

  • Adult models dressed as young girls

I come down on the side that the media is sooooo sexual in today’s world. I happen to believe (after careful thinking and discussion on this topic) that it’s a function of the religious mentality that sex is merely for pro-creation.

Clearly, Western society is in a stage that is on the opposite end of the spectrum, from say, the 1950s, where sex was not talked about, at all. It’s a rebellious tactic, no? A shout out to say, “Sex doesn’t have to be for making babies,” or “We are not our parents, sex can be talked about, explored, plastered on billboards…!”

HALLOWEEN COSTUME TODAY:

 

HALLOWEEN COSTUME 1950s:

 

Today, it’s like “sex! sex! sex!” in the media or “sex is bad, dirty, gross” from people who oppose the sexualized nature of things. A healthier medium has to be reached.

And like, also, why do fish nets have to be bad?
