Girls Gone Wild Bus Tour

It was a while back when I took the picture below of the “Girls Gone Wild” bus tour.  I am sure that most parents of young children know about Girls Gone Wild because if you have been up at 2:00 with a baby watching TV to pass the time until they fell asleep…you are sure to have seen the commercials for these videos.  If you don’t know what it is…all you need to know is that it is some level of porn that has been packaged better than most from what I can tell.

I found myself slightly shocked and offended at the sight of this bus.  Sure they are covered…sort of…but this is nothing less than pornography.  This is nothing less than the continued degradation of our society.  Of course I have the same reaction in the mall.  Every time you walk by a specific store whose name I will not mention other than say that they don’t do a very good job at keeping secrets (Get it…Victoria’s Secret?  Well…shoot…cat’s out of the bag now).  Every time you walk past that store there are some more-than-life-size images of half-naked women staring you down.  This too…I argue…is pornography.

Maybe it is because I have a little girl who will grow up and be looked at with little perverted teenage eyes…and I have a son who will grow up and either know how to respect women and treat them like the deserve to be treated as the image of God that they are.  Or…he will undress them with his eyes, wondering if they match up to the larger-than-life images on in the windows of the mall.

We are doing our best to ensure that our kids have the proper perspective…but things like this…they aren’t helping.  Why is this not a problem to more parents…and for that matter…more people in general?
