Have you noticed these shows have no S rating at the beginning? So parents can be aware of sexual content? Conversely, do you think as a parent of teens who watch these shows, it is incumbent upon you to vigorously monitor your teens media consumption? I am 44 and from a generation where sex was still relatively thought to be something special. You did not see the blatant sexual content you see today...it was more of an implication back in my day...at least when it came to the media. Do you think these shows are "desensitising girls to the act of sex? Objectifying them, or making sex into somewhat of a way to obtain status among social groups? Do you think shows like 16 and pregnant should be on the air? If you watch it...Why? What do you do to instill sexual morality in your teen. Your thoughts???
I have watched 16 and pregnant a few times, but really I lived it so I understand what these girls are going through. I know my older daughter has seen a few of the episodes, and to me she's getting a life lesson in the hardships that teen sex causes. I was lucky - my husband is the father of both of my kids and even though we married in high school we are still together. Most relationships are not like this. I know it and so does she. I can't comment on Glee, I've never watched it, but I think the reality of 16 and Pregnant does a good thing in showing girls the real life of having a baby before you are ready.
