I recently saw this article circulating. It's nice to see that I'm not the only one who cares this much about the amount of pornography they allow on TV these days. I still remember how awful it is to be different as a kid. To not have what everyone else has. To not be allowed to go where all the other kids are going. Now I'm doing that to my own kids, and I'm sad that I have to. It's hard to protect your family from the damage caused by pornography. It's sad how slowly it has taken over. I would say that most people haven't even noticed. It's something that I've always been sensitive to, and especially now that I'm a wife and a mother it really hurts me to see. I can't sit next to my husband, watching a TV show where a woman takes her clothes off and has sex right in front of us, and still feel good about myself. The only way to avoid this situation is to not watch TV. We've almost given up on going to movies with real people in them. It's becoming harder and harder to "live in the world and not of the world", and we've had to make some decisions for our family that take us far from fitting in. A child's worst nightmare. There's a fine line between protecting and smothering, and it's important to me that I don't cross that line. I just hope that we can protect our kids the best we can while allowing them to experience the world. Being a parent is scary.
