Is our hypersexualized culture damaging women and children?

  • Yes It Is and Men, Too!

    While sex is certainly an important part of life, all things should be in moderation. Not everything in life should be viewed through the filter of sex. Our hypersexualized culture turns women into objects for the consumption of the male gaze. And children do not often have a period of innocence in their lives before they are subjected to what their body offers.

  • Yes

    Women's role in society has been perpetuated as that of nothing more than a body and a sexual being. This impact is damaging to women, children, and men within our society because all seem to be loosing out on the attributes of women that are not sexual such as the intellectual skills under developed by most women due to the lack of social support.

  • Hypersexualized Culture is Damaging Women and Children

    Our society is changing rapidly and not always for the better. Hypersexualized behavior is very damaging to our women and children. The sexual revolution that began many years ago played a huge part in this type of behavior. We still need to take a long look at the cause in order to protect our people.

  • Yes, it is

    Yes, it is. If you are demisexual or asexual, sometimes it gets quite hard to deal with. And I generally hate the fact that people make everything about sex and that people are so often just sex-driven animals. I find that kind of sad, and - being demisexual - sometimes quite overwhelming.

  • Of Course it is!

    Many criminal businesses succeed financially on the sex industry. This is because the widespread media is creating mentally sick people to fuel this behavior. People think this is normal, but honestly should do some hard thinking and realize that throughout human history, men and women have bonded monogamously as a means of survival and to create the best society possible.

  • Yes because it is affecting everyone

    It is just sad in my years of education since grade school; it has been natural to talk about "sex experiences". I think this is not a matter of being an adult or young. I think it is a matter of controlling and taming our words, deeds and actions. And monitoring what our children view on the internet.

  • Sexuality is a natural part of the human experience, but the commoditization of sexuality we see today is unnatural and damaging to society.

    I don't think it's as easy a choice as just turning the channel or choosing to not look at internet porno. The world today is literally inundated with bizarre sexual imagery and language. Today we have girls posting these weird soulless selfies of themselves that look more robotic than human, hook up culture which promotes casual sex rather than true bonds and dating sites where people sell themselves as if they were objects. Ironically these things work together to make the act of sex less enjoyable. It just cheapens the experience. I mean, what the hell happened to romance?

  • Absolutely, our society has become completely brainwashed with sex...

    ... As a man recovering from porn addiction (that I didn't even know I had since society led me to believe it was "normal" to use porn) I am stunned and shocked now that my eyes are open to the hypersexualization precedent in our society. It's everywhere from billboards to TV ads to shows and films and music videos and lyrics... And don't even get me started on the internet, social media, selfies and of course, the ridiculously assessable and unending variety of hardcore pornography available to ANYONE, ANY AGE, with a few clicks of a mouse button. I remember when I first stumbled onto internet porn as a child when I searched for the music artist "Alanis Morrissette". And that was 20 years ago - it is impossible for children to have any innocence nowadays... And I believe this is the main reason for the massive amount of single parent "families" and also responsible for the sharp increase in anxiety and depression in a society.

  • Absolutely, as well as men

    A world of porn, human sex trafficking, child sex slavery, a culture where chivalry is not revered, and girls wanting to protect their virginity is mocked. A world that rejects the concept the traditional family, promotes adultery, fornication, cohabitation, and all moral evils. It degrades and devalues women, it corrupts children, and it fosters the development of men into "pigs" in attempt to get women.

  • People in general are being sexualized

    Men and woman are being sexualized all over the place. Sex might be a natural thing but the sex in media is not even real - it is a bunch of overpaid, oversexed actors, musicians and large corporations that use pseudosex to convince people to spend their money. They have to be beautiful, oversexed and horny 24/7 or else they are abnormal in some way. People watch this stuff, think it is real and so society itself starts to really change and becomes hypersexualized. If you were to inform people that the human brain is just an extension of their genitals, they would belive it. We have sex all over everything thanks to decades of sex-pushing from a bunch of bloated perverts who knew how to alter the minds of the nation through imagery and psychological messaging - brainwashing. Look how many people in the same media now being hauled up for sex offences, perversion and child abuse!

  • No, sex is a natural part of life

    The overtly sexual culture that we see today is not damaging if we fully accept it. It is damaging when we show children these sexual images, but do not correctly and accurately portray them. Sex is a part of life and should be not hidden. We show sex, but continue to cover it up with these emotions of shame which sends mixed messages and this messes with children.

  • No, lack of basic necessities and a lack of education is hurting children.

    We are way too hung up on this whole children are exposed to too much sex spiel, despite violent crime and rape being at a historical low. It's not even a new thing, past generations have been clutching their pearls over this since time imemorial. Lack of money, support, and education are what hurt children. Not exposure to sex. We should be demanding an end to child poverty, instead we Yammer on and on about a non issue. Kids are going to see sex, no matter how much it's censored. The best thing to do is educate. No child spontaneously combusted from seeing a sex organ, nobody's kid lost their sanity when they saw mommy and daddy bumping uglies at night.

  • Yes, but more so, no

    It cannot damage anyone unless they consent to it. They can decide what they want to watch. They can decide where they want to go. They can decide which sites they visit. They can decide whether or not they want to jump into bed with someone. Freedom of choice. A cornerstone of the modern democracy. Nobody can force you to take part in this aspect of culture, thus, any damage done to women and children are done to them by themselves.
