Self Respect is disappearing.
I don't know about you guys, but everywhere I look now I see people showing their true lack of self respect.
I can't turn on the television anymore without seeing a commercial for "Girls Gone Wild" or seeing some young person belittling themselves by
acting like a thug or junkie or just plain foolish.
What happened to the concept of self respect in this country?
As far as the GGW sh** goes. Since when was it okay to be a slut? Whatever happened to actually caring enough about yourself to NOT be running around
naked for the world to see and showing exactly what kind of person you are? What does it say about you that you'll let 5 guys gangbang you just so
you can get on a stupid video or (even worse) for some freaking 5 cent beads the guy just bought at the corner convenience store? What the hell is
happening in the world? And also, you guys that are in the video that are part of the "5 man team" are just as freakin bad.
As far as the little "Scarface" wannabes running around everywhere. What the hell is the matter with you? Are you actually proud of being a "thug"
who will likely die a violent death at a too young age? I'm sorry, I just don't see the appeal in it. It's freakin stupid and it's a waste of
I live in a college town, and I'm willing to bet you that of every 10 people I stopped and asked 9 of them would tell me that they have slept with
more than 30 people (if they were being honest naturally...which most around here don't try to hide). What the hell? Is that something to be proud
of? No, but most of them certainly seem to be. (You should check out the clubs around here......) There is NOTHING more disgusting to me that my
generations lack of sexual discretion. Is it a wonder that the divorce rate is so high and there are so many single parents these days? Hell, most
young people now will sleep with someone just because they have nothing better to do that night. And it's not just 20-21 year olds....there are
freaking 10 and 12 year olds out there doing this ****. What the hell is going on?
The first respect we should ever learn is the respect for ones self. Somewhere along the line, the concept of self respect has been lost and I think
it's about damn time people start making an attempt to bring it back.
If we don't do something, this is going to be a truly sad place to live in a few years when these "people" are running things.
