I ran across an interesting blog article today titled “Growing up Female“. I thought it was particularly interesting as it talks about the mixed messages that we send girls in our society and just how far we’ve fallen from being a culture that teaches sex as something special and sacred.
I work with a lot of college students and it’s no secret that college women have my heart. It’s hard for me to watch them struggle with this and see the heartache that the mixed messages often result in. But I have to admit, I’m kind of at a loss of what to do about it. I’m amazed at how difficult those conversations become in light of a culture shaped by Planned Parenthood and “Sex and the City” (which I have to admit I enjoy watching). But how as people who believe in waiting until marriage and the beauty of truly being faithful to your spouse before, as well as during, marriage do we begin to penetrate this culture of recreational sex?
