Teach Our Children To Respect Each Other’s Bodies

I’m greatly disturbed by the increasing numbers of stories I’m hearing, both personally and via the Media, of young girls being forced to perform a sexual act on their male peers.

We should not be surprised that young girls are increasingly having to face dealing with this type of scenario.  Society has sexualised childhood.  Porn has become easily available, and children now listen to very overt sexual lyrics in songs, resulting in young boys believing they have the right to demand sexual favours from girls, and young girls believing they have to acquiesce to those demands in order to be liked.

Parents need to step up to the plate and protect their daughters from this overt sexual exploitation, by teaching them how to value themselves and their bodies, and to equip them with the tools to stop others from taking sexual advantage of them.  And to teach young boys to respect young girls.  Period.
