Does your kid really need that smart/camera phone? January 28, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, Basics, disaster, Domestic Church, family, General Catholic, horror, paganism, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, Society.
Just a quick bit of data that might dissuade parents from letting their kids have internet-capable/picture-capable phones:
Somebody’s lying about the sending and receiving. I’m guessing boys don’t want to own up to what they’re sending.
So almost half of highschoolers – who will admit to it! – have received porn via text on their phones. Nice.
For any teen boys reading this, and Lord I pray you are not: if you ever get the fool idea to take a lurid picture of yourself, just know that there is a very good chance that “pretty girl” on the other end isn’t a girl at all. It’s a dude. Another motivation not to do it. And you young ladies, that hot stud on the other side may well be a big fat ick. Or someone looking to sell some amateur porn. Virtually all such images eventually wind up on porn sites. And the internet is forever.
Reader skeinster had sent me a link to an excellent article on this subject but I had a hard time turning the content into a post. So I never got around to it. But it’s well worth checking out. If you take naked snaps of yourself, you’re playing a fools game with eternal consequences, and I don’t just mean in the next life. There are hundreds of thousands of porn images floating around the internet from the 50s, 40s, 30s, even the 1800s. There is a whole genre of porn called “vintage.” You think that Parisian prostitute who got her picture taken in flagrante delicto thought she’d still be ogled 130 years later?
The point is……..don’t do it. And don’t give kids even the chance to do it. My kids have a very basic phone with no camera. They cannot text. It’s for emergency communication only.
Innocence, once lost, can never be regained. The scarring effect of exposure to such permanently damaging material cannot be overstated. You are really never quite the same person afterwards. Sadly, I got exposed to such filth at a very young age, and it caused me enormous problems later in life. I will likely never have the degree of chastity and purity I should, because those memories, those images, can never be fully erased. I would so much prefer to be a great innocent like Saint Therese or Venerable Teresita than be afflicted with the self-induced traumas I have to deal with.
Don’t be like me. Don’t know about this garbage. Don’t fall into satan’s #1 trap for us. Our Lady told the children at Fatima that more souls fall into hell over sins against the 6th and 9th Commandments than anything else. Don’t even start down that path, because you cannot control it. It – and satan – will control you.
