No, you didn't get what I was saying. There is a movement now in America where girls dress older and have sex at an earlier age. On the TV, internet,
all the media the music, its sex sex sex. Kids are "sexting". I know, the muslim world has polygamy in it and all....
Its just a backhanded way of promoting sex- by putting some of the stranger and recent sexual American "values" next to something covered up and
oppressive- something Americans are afraid of. There is a lack of "morality", for lack of a better word, in the American culture....when you have it
next something as oppressive as that, it looks better and people start feeling pride for it.
Edit: There was a time when Feminism was important, and it said something. Now it seems as if something as beautiful and important as sex and love is
being thrown out the _Instead of meaningful relationships, people get drunk and screw. Now, thats fine to do a bit of that every now and again,
but we are becoming a culture obsessed with it. Alot of women (and men) do NOT respect their bodies, and instead of addressing the issue- or
acknowledging it, you can put something like "Muslim values" next to it- and everything is ok. Its just a way to look at it.
If you look closely, the "Red Dress Sacrifice" has been doing her rounds in music and television.

(no reason given)
ok seriously, it really sounds like you have issues with sex.
this is not about sex or sexting or the immoral acts of children which have gone on for centuries.
pssssst ... before the interwebs and cell phones, we had curiosity, magazines, and cameras and we used all of them
i do and did understand what you said, i simply disagree.
if we are the masters of our destiny, it is an individuals' choice to make, not yours or mine.
the mormon world has polygamy practices here in America, still doesn't make it legal.
so, can/should i send a bottle of moonshine in for show-n-tell ?? tis the same principle.
morality is also a decision ... not for you about me and not for me about you ... tolerance is key.
what you find morally repulsive, i might enjoy thoroughly ... doesn't make it wrong or illegal.
you don't want to get into a discussion with me about sex, honest.
sensuality and sexuality are NOT the same thing.
emphasizing sensuality is NOT a bad thing.
teaching sensuality isn't explored enough.
and since most are born with five senses, isn't it our job to explore them, at the very least?
and, just because ppl engage in sensual behavior does Not mean they are sexually active.
Until ppl learn the difference, we don't stand a chance.
sex is a decision.
sex has one purpose, pro-creation.
sex is not necessary to experience or enjoy love.
sex is not necessary to experience sensual peak or climax
sensuality is to be explored, embraced, encouraged and emulated in every aspect of life.
look at the nature surrounding you ... the evidence is abundant.
as for women respecting their bodies, agreed except we apparently perceive 'respect' differently.
i don't believe concealing myself is respectful. not to me or anyone else.
i don't believe any one else has the right to judge (unless i ask them to) what i do with my body. it is mine.
i refuse to blindly accept someone elses' perception ... i am capable of producing my own.
it is my belief that the state of confusion projected ... ie ... love=sex and sex=love
is the real problem.
as neither is true, why project it at all?
"red dress sacrifice"? sorry, i don't follow you there.
