Media sexualisation

Why is there a current trend amongst celebrities of being sexual and inapporiate singing explicit songs and images? For some strange reason they seem to be doing this and being bad role models to millions of young girls. 

Music videos now contain girls wearing basically nothing and singing explicit lyrics. Why do they feel the needs to do so? Does they hold no respect for themselves? Does they wish for no man to respect them? If you rub sex in peoples faces they will see you as sex and nothing else. 

It is creating a trend and young girls are being led into believing this is right and is culture to be like this. I know people will say ‘it is down to the individual girl and not all girls like that’ which is true but alot of men wont see it that way. Alot of men will also believe girls are just primal sex objects etc. Id not respect a person who didnt respect themselves and the more this trend develops the more it will become life. The more girls will think its right to be like that from a young age the more it will happen in everyday life and the more men will see them as that and as nothing.

Do these celebrities have no shame? Do they have no morality? Why are they glorying themselves as sexual? Where is the pride in revealing all and behaving in such a way? 

In this generation I would say from people aged 35 downwards there is a massive sexualisation. There are images everywhere and the tv full of sexual content. Porn is easily accessible and the sex industry is more massive than its ever been. 

Also in certain newspapers such as the sun and the daily sport there is inappropriate content. In the sun newspaper known as page 3 there is a topless woman picture. Why is this here? Why is it neccessary? What kind of impression is this giving out to young people? This newspaper can be bought and read by ANYONE. How is it appropriate for children?? It is also very awkward in public places when you want to read an article on the page next to it! Does anyone believe its right to feature this? I know most people will say I am being miserable as I am a man and I should enjoy it but its just a cheap thrill and it is disrespectful. 

Also adverts have become provocative in nature. Perfume adverts are flirty and sexual showing women in various sexual situations with men. Sometimes not just one man at times. The messages young girls are being exposed to are well beyond their years. Can children not be allowed to be children? 

Clothes advertised and marketed in shops for children are highly inappropriate and the fashion trend is highly inappropriate for pre teens. Girls far too young are feeling pressure from cosmetic industries now to wear make up etc as this is advertised daily and on kids tv. Young children are being sexualised slowly but dominantly and no one is noticing how dangerous this can be. Children are being made to grow up too fast by marketing campaigns. 

Even girls toys have a stereotypical image of a skinny girl wearing mini skirts etc and other fashion trends to look sexual..why? The media has created a dominant culture of creating an image of a woman that a man wants to see and wants a woman to be. 

It seems for 100s of years women put up a great fight just to be women and be themselves and not mens objects and to be valued and respected and feminists finally won. But sadly this seems to of only lasted a generation. Because now young girls are back to the main aim of wanting to please men through sexual content and actions. The media has brainwashed this to occur and music producers have led a pursuit of deception and degrading material and changed the psyche of women via brainwashing and subliminal messages. 

I know all girls are not like this but still this issue exists for them to see. The pressures they face are extreme. 

The media should stop making out all women are like this! Not all girls are like this! Why dont you focus on real role models with respect of themselves! The media must stop exposing and brainwashing children to be like this and believe its right! The media should have a level of conduct and appropriateness! 

This inappropriateness has to stop!

These images of people who are airbrushed and photoshopped and covered in make up to make them look amazing has to stop! No one who is real can compete with it! People have imperfections thats nature so stop putting huge pressure on people to look amazing because you are setting the standards far too high and its not fair! The pictures you expose people to are fake! Imperfection holds beauty afterall…

You show pictures of girls who are ‘beautiful’ but what is beautiful? Everyone has beauty in their own way. Everyone is different and people should be helped to love themselves. People should be encouraged to respect themselves. The media should focus on a diverse range of girls and not just what they think men like. 

So all these current celebrities who are using sexual images and music and actions and subliminal sex messages and images should stop it as its wrong. Why dont they be a role model of respect? If I had a daughter I would not want her to believe being like this is right. 

Everytime I turn on 4music or mtv there are people in just sexual underwear or doing sexual things and using sexual lyrics and one music video was a topless girl. can someone explain to me why? Why is it neccessary and why are they doing it? What are they hoping to achieve by doing this? Why not show respect and love instead and beauty? How has this sexualisation become the normal? This has been drip fed and slowly over time so no one notices or cares. 

Lets use an example of Vera Lynn during the war she was a good singer and respectful of herself. She was the forces sweetheart not the forces slapper. This was a time when women were women and respectful in nature and suffered no shame. 

I know girls like to feel sexy and beautiful and have desires but there is a time and a place for this and not on public display or as a role model to millions of upcoming people. This is between couples and should only exist in the adultworld not for children to see it. Being sexy and beautiful respectfully is far more attractive. 

Young children need to stop being exposed to these images and being brought up to believe it is normal to be sexual and grow up believing beauty is being tall and thin…beauty is within.

Thankfully there are lots of varietys of girls out there and all beautiful in their own way…

  1. They do it because people respond to it by buying their products. There have always been those who will do anything for money.

    It’s good of you to remind people to act thoughtfully rather than being led by people wanting to prey on our need to be accepted.
