Born to Porn

What is in a ladies life where she decides a little porn, even if its soft, is o.k?.
What has happened in her life to allow herself to be photographed with very little to nothing on. What makes a person do that?. Society encourages it, even applauds it. It's the world's new language. Totally opposite of the Holy Spirit.
I am here to say its not o.k. Women are not objects for others to pour over with greedy eyes.  Call it modeling, athletic fitness showing your entire backside, what ever you want to call it..we all know what it is plain and simple. Gussy it up and call it art, but its still all the same....porn. Your soul is being sold. They have linked porn to human trafficking. Who would want to be apart of that?That is not success! Make all the money, ride in all the luxury, get your body on every magazine for every dirty thing climbing up the fake fantasy ladder to a place of nowhere. You will still turn up empty. Because in your heart of hearts you know its wrong. In the end it will come with a heavy price.




I read this article that I want to share: Excellent blog!

"Being a blogger requires that I use social media a lot. I enjoy social media and I think there is a lot of good that can come from it, but after the experiences I have had, there is one specific platform that I will never allow my children to have unless some major changes occur.

Which one is it might you ask? Well, you might be surprised (or maybe you won’t). It’s Instagram.

I Have been hesitant about writing this post for several weeks because I know it’s not going to make me very popular with some people, and I know I’m going to get the “Porn defenders” coming after me saying a little porn is okay. If that’s you, please just skip this post. This is for the parents that already know porn is harmful and want to be informed.
If you had asked me a year ago, I would have told you Instagram was my very favorite of all social media. I love the idea of it: sharing photos and being able to follow hashtags and see what everyone around the world is posting on that very same thought or subject. It really is a cool idea. Unfortunately, Instagram is doing a very poor job at monitoring what gets uploaded.
For the most part, with all the other forms of social media, you basically see what’s being posted by those you follow. If your kids have good friends and they post good things, your kids won’t see harmful things as often. I have been on Facebook for 10+ years now and have only seen porn or obscene things maybe a couple of times.
I have seen more that that on Instagram in the last month.
You see, the problem with Instagram is your kids aren’t just seeing what their friends are posting, they are seeing what the world is posting. And there is a lot of crappy stuff on there. Twice now in the last couple of months I have run into hardcore porn via very innocent hashtags. This means your kid could simply be doing everything right with absolutely no intention of seeking out porn, and have it show up (with hundreds of images mind you) right on their screen.
One time I was posting a craft project from my blog. I used a hashtag to describe my project, and clicked on the hashtag to see what other bloggers were posting. To my horror I immediately saw several pictures of oral sex, naked breasts, gay porn, and other forms of porn. Many of them had invites to their chat rooms or websites. At first I was very angry and started reporting the images, but after seeing that the photos were endless, and not wanting to have to see any others, I gave up. I did however wait several hours before checking back to see if Instagram had done anything about it and they hadn’t. That was about a month ago. When I decided that I needed to write this post, I checked the hashtag to see if Instagram had taken care of it. NO!!! It is now EXTREMELY obvious that this hashtag is being used for porn and Instagram still has done nothing to monitor or remove it. I have since read articles stating that there are all kinds of hashtags on Instagram that people know they can go to for pornographic images and content.
I really wish this weren’t the case, and I hope things change in the future, but for now…Instagram just isn’t worth it. Even as a blogger (who has to use Instagram for work), I now use it more rarely and I avoid following hashtags. I’ve considered giving it up altogether, which is a bummer. But maybe this needed to happen so that parents will take a stand and demand Instagram tighten their policies and monitor things more carefully. There is no reason why porn (that was reported HOURS or even days prior) should remain. If there’s just too much porn on Instagram to handle, then they need to hire more staff.
In the meantime, I’m not letting my kids near it.
***Side note. Whatever you decide to do in your own home….please, please, please….at the very least have a conversation with your kids and let them know what to do when they come across porn. Because of the world that we live in, it’s going to happen multiples times no matter what rules and regulations you have set up. Make sure your kids don’t feel hesitant to come talk to you when they see something.
