You're not going to like this

 Dear mothers and fathers of the world - please read this article - and watch the video below too. You're not going to like it. You may be offended by it. But it's proof that our daughters are being cheated out of their true inheritance - and they need our help to find themselves - before it's too late. 

"We live in a pornographic culture"

Here's an excerpt (and a nice compliment to our faith):

"So here we are, the feminist and postfeminist and postpill generation. We somehow survived our own teen and college years (except for those who didn't), and now, with the exception of some Mormons, evangelicals and Orthodox Jews, scads of us don't know how to teach our own sons and daughters not to give away their bodies so readily."

And not everyone is happy about it:


  1. Thanks for sharing this. A good reminder that we must constantly teach our children of their worth. I was struck by the author's phrase "We are living in a pornographic culture". The message is coming at us from all sides and so I suppose as parents we must in turn teach our children about this widespread fallacy that our bodies are to be used as tools.

  2. Yes. Well said. A good friend once laughed that when there ward hosted a mother/daughter date and the moms dressed like their daughters that she felt like a prostitute. I was thinking- well, I am sure you can guess. We have to watch it. Sneaky little adversary

  3. Thank you for posting this. It is a crazy world we live in and if we don't protect our kids who will?
