“Okay, we’ve got red, orange, and purple,” Gin said. “Now we just need yellow, green, and blue.”
“Don’t forget indigo,” Sandy said as she scanned the row of lipstick tubes.
“What are you talking about?”
“Indigo,” Sandy repeated as if that explained everything. “You know. ROY G. BIV. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.”
“That’s seven lipsticks. Only six girls are coming. We don’t need it.”
Children. They grow up so quickly. Too quickly. Every previous generation may say it of the next…yet the moral bankruptcy of America marches on.
Maybe it’s the hormones in our food, ushering an onset of physical adulthood well before proper psychological development. Perhaps the blame can be laid at the feet of mothers who aspire to be away from the home rather than paying attention to solemn responsibilities nature and God have entrusted them with. The poison pedaled by the Hollywood filth machines, that comes too quickly and loudly for their young minds to deal with? I believe an argument can be made for a combination of all of the above. Regardless of the cause, where our children have arrived is a very scary place.
Many of us by this point have become aware of the practice of ‘sexting’, where text and sexually suggestive images are traded by SMS message. The Austin American-Statesman has reported that “1 in 5 teenagers have sent sexually suggestive picture by text”. In fact Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and state Sen. Kirk Watson see this as such a huge problem that they are “moving to curb the growing scourge of ‘sexting.” Watson views the practice as not just harmful to young Texans, but “morally hazardous” and potentially illegal. ‘Sexting’ in Texas is a third-degree felony, punishable by a prison sentence of two to 10 years and a $10,000 fine. The felony charge also triggers lifelong registration as a sex offender.
Sadly the degradation of our youth goes quite beyond filthy pictures and messages sent by cell phone. In July 1998, The Washington Post ran a front-page story with the headline, “Parents Are Alarmed by an Unsettling New Fad in Middle Schools: Oral Sex.” The article reports a scandal in an Arlington, Virginia, school, where a group of eighth-graders would get together for parties at which boys and girls paired off for sexual activities that eventually progressed from petting to oral sex. There were also a couple reported instances of public fellatio, on a school bus and in a hallway, that reached school authorities “through the student grapevine.”
Over the next decade similar reports have become more pervasive…and more ritualized.
Theme parties are all the rage among today’s young people:
-Pimps and Hoes
-Billionaires and Bimbos
-CEO’s and Business Hoes
-Bosses and Secretaries
-Professors and School Girls
-Tennis Pros and Country Club Hoes
-Millionaires and Maids
-Cheerleader and Jock
These themed events culminate in the Rainbow Party. These are gatherings in which boys receive multiple sessions of oral sex from girls, collecting a number of “rainbow” lipstick stains on their genitals, then comparing their results with their male friends.
An informal survey reported in an New York Times dated June 30, 2005 found that most of those aged 13 to 16 knew what rainbow parties were, believe they take place and hear of them through the school gossip mill.
Micael Nerney who gives presentations on adolescent risk-taking nationwide, said he first heard about rainbow parties in 2002 in Westchester County. He believes these parties do take place and usually involve middle school girls and older boys.
“I don’t think there’s a lot of myth to it,” said Dorothy Parham, the head of guidance at Harrisburg High School in Pennsylvania. “I think it is happening…It’s part of the whole scene around AIDS and teens thinking oral sex is O.K.”
Caitlin Flanagan during an essay published in The Atlantic put it thusly:
“We’ve made a world for our girls in which the pornography industry has become increasingly mainstream, in which Planned Parenthood’s response to the oral-sex craze has been to set up a help line, in which the forces of feminism have worked relentlessly to erode the patriarchy—which, despite its manifold evils, held that providing for the sexual safety of young girls was among its primary reasons for existence. And here are America’s girls: experienced beyond their years, lacking any clear message from the adult community about the importance of protecting their modesty, adrift in one of the most explicitly sexualized cultures in the history of the world. Here are America’s girls: on their knees.”
