As much as the liberals claim to be more open minded than conservative religious types. We all have sexual relations. According to a recent Gallup poll it is estimated that nearly half of the population 18-34 watch pornography. Sex clubs and bathhouses are popping up in major cities and even small rural towns. As the cities get more liberal this is to be expected. But as some conservatives boast that the legalization of Gay Marriage will lead to bestiality and pedophilia, is there anything suggesting that this isn’t true?
Of course documents legalizing gay marriage is NOT the thing that will instantly lead to the taboos mentioned above. States that legalize gay marriage have not opened the gateways to any other type of marriage one can think of. The concern lies with the progression of sexual cultural trends. However, what Christians are concerned about when they mention these taboos now, is that in another generation, they may not be so taboo. Remember in 1950 Women barely left their homes. The majority of women in America spent their entire lives raising their children and giving birth. It was the woman’s job to do this. The man went to work! Today, many kids are left home unsupervised because the parents need to work two jobs just in order to stay afloat.
As the so-called gay agenda penetrates (no pun intended) American society and culture, will it stop there? Internetsafety101 has found some alarming statistics that goes on in the home when the parents leave!
Nearly 9 out of 10 (87 percent) young men and 1 out of 3 (31 percent) young women report using pornography.
American children begin consuming hardcore pronography at an average age of 11
The words “sex” and “porn” rank fourth and sixth among the top ten most popular search terms.
One out of three youth who viewed pornography, viewed the pornography intentionally.
Roughly two-thirds (67 percent) of young men and one-half (49 percent) of young women agree that viewing pornography is acceptable.
Additionally, males aged between 12 and 17 who regularly viewed pornography had sex at an earlier stage in life and were more likely to initiate oral sex, apparently imitating what they had seen.
[/LIST]This means that as technology and advertisers come into the home and as the home itself becomes its own box of digital content there can be almost no stopping a child from accidentally clicking an ad or a link (which in reality are ads) full of inappropriate sexual content. As kids become more technologically minded than their own parents, there is literally no chance in stopping the kid who actually WANTS to view the content! It also means that when kids learn how to use the simple interface of iPhones at as young as age 3. Children will be exposed to pornography throughout their entire lives.
Pornography has gotten more violent in recent years as trends such as S&M, Bondage, and BDSM, and plain old violent sexual acts emerge into the mainstream world of porn. It is reported that the pornography business is the most recession proof business in the world and since it generates nearly $100 Billion worldwide, it makes sense that people turn to prostitution during desperate times! That’s just porn itself. I’m sure you are all aware of the sexualization in advertisements as normal as body washing or even girls dancing around in their underwear in medicine commercials. Children are impacted with pictures of beautified skinny girls in bikinis in provocative poses and half naked teenagers going for a roll in the hay in television shows supposedly made for children!
But that’s just LEGAL porn and so-called explorations of sexuality! Liberals and Conservatives actually agree on the topic of Child Pornography. It is not right! Just because it’s not right, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. How far can that exploration of sexuality go?
In America and most other countries the videotaping of children(16 and under) is illegal! Nevertheless child pornography continues to be a $3 Billion industry right here in America! 1500 websites are registered for the explicit purpose of distributing these videos each year.
As conservatives like to point out, no amount of government laws are going to prevent desperate folks for doing what they do. Lawyers can at least use those same laws to justify their actions. Unfortunately Child Sex laws are lax. You need to actually be in the videos face shown and have the child testify against you before you even start to get a sentence. You have to hurt children many times before you are considered a “major threat” in the eyes of the law. If you are caught selling or producing of child pornography you get a fine, no jail time and a slap on the wrist! The pedophiles would say that they are born before their time. This chilling justification might unfortunately be wisdom. The pedophiles know that their industry is huge. They like Apple’s fan boys are experts on the subject matter and some even produce their own movies. They know where their industry is going. While everybody else just hopes that this scary cultural trend just goes away. I don’t think it will go away!
As you may recall I did mention the increasing presence of sexuality in everyday life. Afterall, without the porn business we might not have a way to make transactions on the internet! The guy who wrote the very first program to send money over the internet, made it possible for credit card transactions for other internet companies, but porn, was the first content bought on the internet.
I believe that sexual boundaries will be erased in the future and by 2050 child sex might become mainstream and children allowed to marry. Now, this is just a trend that I see as pornography becomes more mainstream and more insensitive. Do I think Child Sex could emerge as something controversial but nonetheless in the public spotlight 50 years from now? Child sex is more of an evil taboo now, but it does exist out there. It is a growing concern and as of this point, there is no reason to believe that it won’t continue to grow and that is a scary thought!
