A Porn Saturated World

Everything you look at today has some sort of overtly pornographic connotation to it. I call it “The Head of The Octopus”, it has an arm in every industry that distorts what reality is. The industries that are affected are all forms of media (entertainment, movies, music, TV, fashion, etc.). These are things that are consumed on a daily basis therefore, porn is consumed on a daily basis knowingly and unknowingly. This will lead a consumer to wanting to know what porn really looks like by actually viewing it in it’s original state. The pornification of our media and the women and girls in our society is the catalyst that leads consumers, mostly men and boys, to watch pornography on a regular basis. This makes them addicted to it as well as viewing women and girls through a dark lens of violence and rape. It distorts, twists, and manipulates the mindsets of men and boys into treating women and girls as commodities, something to be used and then discarded.

The pornography and child pornography industry is a billion dollar business because our society has been desensitized to it and therefore buys into it in many ways. Sexual overtones pour out in children’s movies that are supposedly made by film companies that are ‘Family Oriented”, this causes a complacent attitude when a child is doing something that is completely inappropriate but is then overlooked because ¬†they may have been imitating something that they saw in the latest Disney film or Pixar-take your pick. Children’s entertainment speaks to the adults that are bored but will find it entertaining when crude or sexualized behavior occurs. Music is no different. The Rap and Hip-Hop genre has made sure their target audience is children-no that’s not a mistake.

Mixing the innocence of a child with mature subjects of a sexual nature is a dangerous combination. This will give them the wrong idea about life and relationships and could very well send them into the trappings of a Pedeophile who will then introduce them to hard core pornography. Parents cannot afford to be complacent about this.

This is more than an addiction-it is a disease, infecting every part of our lives, consciously and unconsciously. The justifications that are being put upon this industry to make it “ok” to view are absolutely inaccurate and can’t be farther from the truth. Women and girls who are forced into this for a variety of reasons but mostly because they are being preyed upon, drugged, threatened, in pain and deeply depressed. Does that still sound “Sexy”? What you are viewing is a broken, depressed and intoxicated woman/girl being raped-repeatedly. This torture doesn’t stop when you’re finished watching, her nightmare continues and continues-and continues. All the jokes and scenarios that are playing out in movies, music videos, comedy etc. concerning the sexual oppression and dehumanization of women and girls are all coming out of the head of the octopus directly to your TV, mobile phone, tablet, laptop, iPad, Smart device, YouTube-the list goes on.

The question is, will you spread the disease or will you look for the cure?
