We are living in an era where the media give more attention to things that are negative rather than issues that will have positive influences on our young girls.  

Many young girls work hard at bettering their lives.  Some have worked and put themselves through colleges and universities and excel at what they do.  Are they given and recognition for their achievements?  Very few are.  After all what is interesting about getting a degree?  What is juicy about having a reputable profession?  That is not good enough to make the headlines.  It is not important to put out there so that other young girls can have hope and the understanding that if they too work hard they can achieve great things and have a successful and meaningful career.

On the other hand a girl can make a pornographic video and rise to fame.  She exposes her body for the world to see and for this she is rewarded.  She is made to feel like a celebrity.  She might even get her own reality TV show in recognition of her great achievement.  What a world we are living in.  She strips her self and perform sexual acts for the world to see,  the world loves it and she rises to fame and stardom.

The media is so hypocritical.  Kristin Stewart kissed another man and the media went after her like scavengers in pursuit of dead meat.  It was just one stupid kiss, one momentarily lapse in judgement and it was as if she had committed the ultimate crime.  Would it have been more acceptable if she had made a porn video?

We are sending the wrong messages to our young girls and then we have the nerve to turn around and criticize them when they try to follow the example of the ones we idolize and make stars.  The stories of great achievements by our young women will rarely be heard, but the porn stars will make the headlines every-time.

To all the good girls out there do not be discouraged.  Continue to do greatness even if it is not recognized.  Live your lives in such a manner that your children will be proud to call you mom and see you as their role models.  Continue to live exemplary lives and be proud of who you are.

    You sure nailed this one, Marva. The media prints and talks about what sells, not what’s important. After all, most of them ignored the Gosnell trial!

    Yes, young women are pressured to look and act in a certain way, as you say hard work sometimes seems pointless if you can earn fame and fortune by selling yourself to the highest bidder. But what of your soul , your self respect. Yes to all the good and principled young people don’t sell yourselves short!
