Taylor Swift: Another Victim of the Sexual Revolution

June 8th, 2014 Comments off

The Entertainment Media Establishment, Gossip Division, is reporting that Taylor Swift gave her virginity to a man she thought was going to marry her.  Three months later, she had a party for herself, and he didn’t show up. This took place at Christmastime of 2010. I don’t know exactly why The Entertainment Media Establishment, Gossip Division is reporting it now. Maybe Ms. Swift’s handlers issued a new press release about it, to drum up publicity. Or something.

Pop star, yes, but also just a 24 year old kid.

Pop star, yes, but also just a 24 year old kid.

In any case, as the mother of a young woman about the same age as Taylor, I find the whole story heartbreaking. Some of the media outlets have been down-right catty towards this now 24 year old young woman, over the years since she broke up with Jake.  Philly.com calls her the “Miss Goodie Goodie of the pop community.”  The Huffington Post admitted that “ for her part, Swift is devastated,” but opined, “On the plus side, at least she’s got some new material for her next album.”  Hollywood Life wants to know: “What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Is Taylor right to diss Jake again? Should she and Harry reunite?”

The Entertainment Media Establishment, Gossip Division seems indifferent to the fact that Taylor was 20 years old when this happened.  She was and to some extent remains, a vulnerable young woman. I’m guessing the authors of these catty columns about her are somewhat older than 20.

She was “saving herself for marriage.”  The guy convinced her to have sex with him. Shortly after, he ditched her.

Why the ‘Son of God’ Movie Does Not Deserve Our Support

March 28th, 2014 Comments off

by Jennifer Roback Morse

This article was first published March 11, 2014, at ChristianPost.com.

Despite its box office success, the Son of God movie isn’t very good. Despite its widespread endorsement by Christian leaders, it is not faithful to the Scriptures. Watching this film reminded me of my dealings with seriously disturbed children. Read more…

Teenagers ‘can be corrupted’ by Hollywood sex scenes

July 19th, 2012 Comments off

Watching sex scenes in Hollywood films can make children more promiscuous and sexually active from a younger age, a new study has suggested.

Psychologists concluded that teenagers exposed to more sex on screen in popular films are likely to have sexual relations with more people and without using condoms. Read more…

What’s behind our girl-harming culture?

by Dale O’Leary

A professional body tackles the issue of the sexualisation of girls but fails miserably to diagnose the cause.

No-one would guess it from even a passing acquaintance with popular television shows, but there is increasing concern among parent and professional groups about the sexualisation of girls. Responding to this concern the American Psychological Association appointed a taskforce to study the problem in 2006. The resulting report shines a light on a real problem, but it fails to offer a workable solution. It is undeniable that the media and culture present girls with a sexualized image of their value and appeal. However, seeing the problem does not necessarily mean that one understands the cause, and without understanding the cause it is highly unlikely that one can prescribe the correct remedy. Read more…

Movie morality is plummeting

Film censors are allowing teens to access much more explicit content and few parents seem to care

A time traveller from the 20th Century would very likely be shocked by how standards have plummeted in the film industry in a little over a decade – particularly with movies aimed at the teen market. Even parents from the swinging ’60s and ’70s would have thought twice about the explicit films now routinely sanctioned by censors for viewing by teenagers. Read more…

‘Glee’ sends wrong message on teen sex

November 12th, 2011 Comments off

By Melissa Henson, Special to CNN

Editor’s note: Melissa Henson is the director of communications and public education for the Parents Television Council, a nonpartisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment.

(CNN) — Kids having sex on prime time broadcast TV? Must be sweeps month.

It’s so predictable, it’s almost laughable. Almost. That is, it would be if it weren’t for the fact that there are real-world consequences for these brazen, ratings-boosting publicity ploys. Read more…

No ‘Glee’ About Virginity

November 12th, 2011 Comments off

by Brent Bozell

In Hollywood, the only truly serious sexual disease is virginity. It’s a dire and embarrassing condition, desperately in need of elimination. Teenagers that still have “it” are woefully immature. They might as well consider themselves to be walking the school hallways in diapers.

Along comes Fox Entertainment to enlighten us. Get ready. It’s sick. Read more…

No One Invited…Mother.

Over the weekend, I was sifting through a pile of mail and got distracted with a Brooks Brothers catalog (pictured right). Something bothered me, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Then I realized, this cover picture had nothing to do with a family, except perhaps a broken one. Read more…

“Nobody Gets Married Any More, Mister”

An urban high school teacher in Connecticut talks about unwed motherhood, fatherlessness, and how it affects the kids in his classroom.

by Gerry Garibaldi

…Here’s my prediction: the money, the reforms, the gleaming porcelain, the hopeful rhetoric about saving our children—all of it will have a limited impact, at best, on most city schoolchildren. Urban teachers face an intractable problem, one that we cannot spend or even teach our way out of: teen pregnancy. This year, all of my favorite girls are pregnant, four in all, future unwed mothers every one. There will be no innovation in this quarter, no race to the top. Personal moral accountability is the electrified rail that no politician wants to touch… Read more…
