Why Kids Are So Awfully Sexualized

Today’s kids have been turned into little sex monsters by the sex culture surrounding them. They see the music videos of such morally bankrupt “artists” as Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, and nearly every R&B and rap “artist” out there; videos featuring females getting male attention and money thrown their way for showcasing their bodies, accompanied by lyrics (from females) that plead for their two-timing, physically abusive boyfriends to love them again, or lyrics (from males) that remarkably find ever more creative ways to express praise of a “b*tch’s” booty. Black girls try to ingratiate themselves to black boys, whom they know will only love them for their curves–personality doesn’t jiggle and hearts don’t bounce–and white girls try to ingratiate themselves to the black girls out of the white guilt they’ve built up by immersion in a culture that shames low melanin levels.

Adolescents don’t often watch BET and their trashy music videos, but they do watch programs like American Idol. It is here that the sex culture finds its way into the younger kids’ minds. What was Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe thinking when he hired as a judge rapper Nicki Minaj, who rhythmically moans such mellifluous verses as “What can I do to kick it off? How ’bout I **** all on your **** and then I **** it off?” And allowing Jennifer Lopez to sashay around onstage in a skimpy uniform to the delight of idolatrous teeny-boppers? And giving the go-ahead to Lady Gaga to perform for the kiddies a song and dance onstage, the choreography of which amounted to little more than simulated sex?

Girls also hear the feminist messages being vomited forth from the TV, on one hand telling patriarchal society not to define women by their body parts, and on the other hand donning giant vagina costumes as they march in what they themselves proudly dub “slut walks,” telling all within shrieking distance, to include little girls, “Vote with your vaginas!” This only further convinces “the patriarchy” that, no, women really are nothing more than the sum of their body parts.

What does all of this do for children?

One thing it leads to is the modern mating call of moral degenerates: sexting. As you probably know, sexting is the act of transmitting via cellphone a nude or otherwise sexually suggestive photo of oneself to another. When combined with Twitter, it can kill a career (or at least come so marvelously close).

As a conservative, I’m all about personal accountability. Of course kids are to blame for engaging in the act of sexting. They are not being forced to do it; however, while it is ultimately their responsibility not to act like depraved primitives, it is the parents’ responsibility to protect their children from society’s pressure to debauch themselves. Parents are failing in this area, and disastrously. They are letting society do the parenting, sacrificing their child to deviancy for the ease of hands-free rearing.

What led to Will Smith’s 12-year-old daughter baring her midriff in a music video in which she has a “Summer Fling” with an older lad? What made an 11-year-old Pittsburgh girl want to sext topless photos of her reportedly filled-out self to someone? What else but society’s prescription for a liberal, free-wheeling attitude toward sex and sexuality?
