Continuation of Selling Out Girls
It is time for us to take a hard look at how we view girls, teens and women in society.
As mothers we are on the vanguard of making sure our girls are dealing with their own sexuality and the sexuality of others with respect.
It is part of our duty to say no to certain looks to certain modes of dress. We must look at our family values, beliefs and personal moral code to see what we will accept and what we won't.
Young women, teens, are prone to sudden flights of fancy and will be attracted to what ever is popular at the moment. We can not allow them to throw away their reputation on a momentary thought of what they thinks looks cute....NO
We must teach them that men/boy are visual creatures, and there is an unwritten code that if they dress in a certain way they are saying they must want sex all the time, even if that is not their intention or wish.
We must help them understand that the shows on TV are not real life. Perhaps the only exception is Teen Mom, but even now the Teen mothers have become more celebrities than moral warnings.
The report on The Sexualization of Girls:
The Theology of the Body would categorize this as having freedom with another's body without the responsibility to the opposite sex.
We must take the teachings of the Theology of the Body which emphasis that man is made for love, that sex is good, that is only for marriage and that love is deepen through a sexual relationship that takes into account the whole couple and their duties and responsibility to each other. We must help both our boys and girls know that God made them and they are good, that sex, while a powerful force, without control can be emotionally and spiritually dangerous.
