Well, I am getting sick of the commercials on TV to boost your sex Testosterone safely. When you get older, you shouldn't be driven by testosterone. We should be getting smarter, not hornier, as we age.
I don't think that we need to be seeing women wearing underwear in commercials either.
We do not need a bunch of congressmen in our government that can be influenced by a pretty face. I see that morals are important, especially in older people. Sure the young can be a little wild when their hormones are flowing, that is part of life. But this has to end when they become adults. What happened to the words "growing up" Everyone wants to be young nowadays, horemones and pheromones flying. Even the grandparents are brainwashed.
Maybe the minimum age of someone working for the FDA and congress should be raised to eighty. At least they are grown up at that age. Unless they are taking things that raise their hormone levels that is.
What I object strongest to, personally, isn't the overall shifts in society for changing values and morals. It has to come eventually on some things, and was very overdue on others. What those things are, tends to vary by individual perception but most, if not all of us can think of a few to fall into that category I'll bet.
What I have the biggest problem with is that it's not even close to focused in correction or adjustment for any purpose...good OR bad. It's an orgy of hedonism without limits.
No society which forsakes it's basic values and sense of culture or identity has lasted long afterward. If there are exceptions, I'm entirely unaware of them above the level of a tribe or commune for size.
We needed some of the prudish attitudes to modernize or at least stop making basket cases out of people for our own bodies and sense of self. Yet...free for all comes to be free for none, eventually while values can become something we long for and find no easy way back to.
I'd say we should always be careful what we wish for, as we may well get far more of it than is healthy.
Tho i agree with most of your things you mentioned, i do disagree with "over sexualization" is a good thing.
> In my opinion < Sex should not be displayed and it should never be "casual" things you do with someone to feel good. I look at sex as both mental and physical connection with someone who is not casual. It is disgusting to me when it is just done to "get off", Tho i don't care or judge the people who are promiscuous because i will never be like that in my life.
The 2nd thing that is wrong with "over sexualization" is that kids(age 11-15) would assume it is perfectly okay to do it , when they are not ready for any responsibility, both physcially or mentally. This is nothing to do with sexual education which i agree with.
I do not think making sex into something casual is a good thing.

For millenia, people have been getting married in their teens. Some as low as 10, 11, or 12. This still even goes on in other countries.
Teenage pregnancy isn't a new thing either.
Animals don't care who sees them do it or at what age they do it, yet we are SOOO adamant that it needs to be between two consenting adults
The real issue is not changing morals, the issue is the reason for which those morals are being changed.
There is an agenda at work to destroy the family, erode religion, and chip away at traditional values. This isn't some inevitable progression of human evolution; this is social engineering at work. There are people in very high places setting these plans, and you'd best believe they don't have humanity's best interests at heart.
Before his death, Aaron Russo exposed the depths of this corruption. The Rockefellers funded the woman's rights movement--not to "liberate" women, but to increase the tax base and move children earlier into the state-run education (read: indoctrination) system. The Rockefellers funded the education system--not to give Americans a broader education and increase intelligence, but to create the Gamma/Delta/Epsilon slave-castes from Huxley's Brave New World so they'd have a near-illiterate and functionally retarded pool of workers to draw upon, slaves who could be used by the system, but who would never be able (or think to!) rebel against it.
Believe me, the people pushing these social issues do not have our best interests at heart. So when TPTB start hypersexualizing children (again, this is straight from the Huxley Brave New World playbook) or pushing a homosexual agenda (a divide and conquer scheme to fragment and polarize opposition), the motives of these people are the same. They seek to retain their control at our expense. They seek to fragment and divide and separate us further, all at a time when humanity should be coming together to fight our real enemies:

Of course that is true, my grandmother got married at 16, my grandfather was 18. Can i say a 16 yr old from the year 2014, is equivalent to a 16 yr old in 1915? Physically maybe, but mentally? i highly doubt it.
People matured early back then, handled task much greater, supported families in their teenage years, became a "man" at 16.
Its not new, but its not healthy or good should be encouraged either, and the consequences are not good for the mother or the child for the reasons mentioned above.
We are animals but we are much more developed. Animals(and some humans) Rape, kill and do other atrocities.
Animals do it because they do for procreation(except few) and dominance. Animals also know when the other is ready to mate and they do so with scent are pheromones... this way rape, incest and mating with animals that havn't "matured" can be prevented.
