Not only has our highly-sexualized culture in the West fueled the world’s human trafficking problem, but it is also having detrimental effects on our children. In America, most kids are exposed to porn by age 11 and see over 14,000 sexualized messages each year.
In 2008, the American Psychological Association released a report called The Sexualization of Girls. They made a case that the onslaught of sexualized images in media and pop culture has created a mental health crisis, evidenced by the increased levels of depression, low self-esteem and eating disorders in young girls. What’s more, America’s sex-obsessed culture has spilled out to almost every corner of the globe.
Today’s children and teens are bombarded with a distorted view of human sexuality that could potentially have lifelong effects. It is essential that they are protected from inappropriate sexual content for as long as possible and given balanced education on the subject at the right times from the right people.
Note, there are pedophilia and homosexual lobby groups that are pushing to sexualize children as early as possible in order to get their sexual preferences normalized and accepted with children, and eventually legalized. Abortion businesses such as Planned Parenthood also do the same thing in an effort to create lifelong customers.
