if girls only knew

 A few months ago I was standing on a bus and noticed the two young guys sitting in front me. The very foolish girlfriend of one of them had sent photos of herself in various stages of undress to his phone. And what was he doing? Showing them to his buddy while the two of them laughed. I felt sorry for the girl.  Hopefully those photos didn't end up being seen by her whole school but she's already been degraded the moment she  stripped off and tried to imitate a prostitute.

She'd been told by the movies, the magazines, the TV shows and the teen novels that being sexually loose was the only way to keep a guy. She's probably never been told about mortal sin, chastity or honor by anyone she respects. Some people carry on about sexting and cell phones but it's not the phone that's at fault. 20 years ago girls were taking photos of themselves with their handy Polaroid instant camera and giving it to boyfriends who either promptly showed them to friends or tossed them in a drawer where they were later discovered by someone else.

We've lost the culture and the kids are suffering because of it.

I feel like passing this on via a text and hope it goes 'viral'.



I am convinced much of this is because we have 'ferral' children. Parents who just don't take the time to take their children aside and tell them, boys and girls, just the very gist of your posting.

Opps, my fingers typed an extra r in feral.

But, once I read the urban dictionary version, well that might be appropriate also...

Girls would not have done this years ago because they knew a meeting with Papa's belt or Momma's hairbrush would be the result of that kind of foolishness!

sadly this kind of thing is the product of not enough supervision and the "sexual revolution".
