This is just more of the hyper-sexualization of society.
The fact that the parents think nothing is wrong with it is disgusting but not the least bit surprising.
Clearly, sexuality has been party of humanity and society forever. For some reason I cannot understand, in the last 25 years or so, we have been
encouraging, allowing and pushing it on children.
Media, music and fashion promote it, and no one seems to mind. Sure there is a voice here or there, but there is also the hypocritical aspect that
helps it. Adults and parents often condemn such things, but they themselves participate in it, often in clear view of children.
Why has it become fashionable to encourage adult behavior in children?
I have seen members of my family encourage their 2 year old to use foul language, or generally misbehave so they can all laugh about it. Society is
getting too perverse.
Sites like myspace, facebook, and YouTube also are clear indicators of the exhibitionist mentality we have developed. Sexting?! Why does everyone feel
they need to be seen and heard by an audience? Why the need to show off? Don't people value privacy anymore?
We accept immorality, and a culture that allows sexual preference and behavior to be central defining tenants. We glorify it in tabloids, movies and
music. We permit it in our leaders.
Like everything else wrong in society, we allow it. Some by being hypocrites, some by openly encouraging it, others by not saying and doing anything
about it when it happens.
The ride down is only going to get rougher.
