So there have been many things in the last few weeks that have come to mind that I would maybe want to blog about. Usually though I would think about them at times that I couldn't write about it. So I wouldn't and would just shove the ideas in the back of my mind. So today I needed to write.
Why is the sex industry and porn so acceptable in our society? On the one hand its thought of as a bad thing, but then every single person has their experiences with it. And even if someone intends something to be for the romance aspect. Well, it still creates feelings in the person watching or reading, that shouldn't be happening in that setting. I think that we want to think the best of people at times. We want our heroes to be people that are not involved in the culture of death. Death of the pure and holy things. But then all of those around us are proud of their experiences with these degradations, these piles of cow crap. It makes me angry but also makes me sad. There was a guy today that said that when he is around porn and such he gets nauseous, well honestly I think thats a better thing than being stimulated by it. It actually makes me think that guy has a better grasp on how terrible we have made sex out to be. Why haven't we taught guys what sex is really about. Why haven't we learned ourselves as women to respect ourselves enough to say no or to not dress like a slut. I guess its cause we suck. And I blame the people that want to pull others down into the dumpster because for some reason that dumpster must be pretty appealing. Maybe it has a beautiful painting on the front of it or something, or a whole bunch of footballs.
The part that has hit lately is the whole human trafficking thing. So many of these women are not in it because they want to be. Something or someone has made them be. And it sucks. I have to try not to cry at this because I would, I know how much a misrepresentation of sex can screw a person up. And its not fun, the thrill of it doesn't last if there is any thrill. It just sends you into a depression, at least it did for me.
I want to challenge those people that read this, the whole 2 of them, to really live out who God made them be, a sexual being, but not one that sees the opposite sex as meat or a humping post, and to dress in a way that is flattering but not revealing. Girls are beautiful to guys, and guys are handsome to girls. But lets not picture them naked, or obsess about them. Just treat them like your best friend, or your sister. I mean think of it this way would you want your sister or brother to be defiled by every man or woman she came in contact with. No. So don't do it yourself to someone else's sister or brother.
So I probably didn't have a real point. All I know is that this world is oversexualized and we aren't helping the matter by bragging about strip club experiences or porn experiences. So just stop. Read a Theology of the Body book and just start living life the way we are intended to do so.
