The subject I am about to write about is X rated, so beware. Oh...no, forget I said that...no one cares about those ratings anymore and no one cares if children are exposed to pornographic sex. Heck, if you do care about such things, you can't even let your children watch the commercials on the nightly news. The age of innocence seems lost forever...at least in this lifetime.
The revelation of the cause of Michael Douglas' throat cancer in the last couple of days threw me into a case of nausea and cringing. What Michael Douglas does with his mouth is disgusting anyway, considering the pandering to the gay community in his latest depiction of Liberace. I guess you are considered a great actor if you can portray some unsavory person in a compassionate way. That's the mark of great acting today, showing the supposed humanity in depraved people. Betting he'll win an Oscar or an Emmy for that. Not stopping there, Mr. Douglas then decides to share with the world that his throat cancer is caused by oral sex performed on someone....do we know who? Not sure. I stopped reading the reports shortly after the headlines. Truly, I am sick of this constant normalizing of ...not just variations of sexual activity, but of everyone obsessed with discussing it ad infinitum.
I was told once that some men would (blank) mud to satisfy their urges. And that was before Viagra...so heaven only knows how bad this urgency of satisfaction has gotten now. Granting that the sex drive is part of being human (or animal of any sort), is this the major and main motivator of all human activity? You would think so if you just landed on the planet and took a look at the culture. I guess not having to forage for food and shelter has left humans with nothing else to do but ....well...you know what. Love? Not so much. Sex!! Yes...so much!! Frankly, what Michael Douglas does with his mouth (or any other exuding body part) is a major turn off and I don't want to hear about it. What happened to modesty and discretion? So passé I guess.
Enter the the government health and education system! Whoo Hoo...now we get to have government sanctioned sex! And it covers EVERYTHING!! Oh great!! Not happy to be left out of the national orgy, the Federal government has decided that 10 year old children should be exposed to every manner of sexual activity known to mankind. Why don't we just dumb down the Kamasutra for the elementary schools and let them have at it? Or how about the Kinsey Reports....just put pornographic videos in front of 10 year old children and tell them, "Anything goes!!" These are the same people shoving Common Core down the throats (excuse the pun) of all American school children.
Here is a brief Breitbart article describing the school program for these young, previously innocent children. I've seen worse than this from the schools, if you can imagine what sort of booklets are handed out to potentially gay male students. Isn't it nice of them to use my tax dollars (and yours) on wrecking the behaviors and sexual expectations of children? This is child abuse, sexual abuse of children. There is no other way to look at it. I am very sad for children subjected to this...out of context and random encouragement of deviant sexual behaviors way before they are even close to being ready for any sexual relationship.
The Victorian reaction to syphilis was to (metaphorically and literally) draw back from promiscuity. The dangers of rampant and illicit sexual activity were dire, to say the least. The dangers are still around, but our culture has become mad with ignorance of health reasons for propriety. In our society, the word "illicit" is divorced from sex. (Does anyone use that word anymore to describe anything?) To subject children to this constant onslaught of promiscuous sexual activity is child abuse. I can't think of any other words for it.
