The Shock of Seeing Where You’re Going
There is a video on YouTube of an 8 year old girl imitating Lady Gaga in a talent competition. I’m not going to embed it here, because it’s not something you really need to see; you can imagine how bad this is without actually seeing it. What I find interesting about this specific video is the reaction among some of those in the world when they see this video.
You’re overreacting, I told myself. But watching that little child’s half-naked body contort and gyrate and crawl on the floor, her sweet little face disguised as a grown up lady clown – it broke my heart. I admire her bravery and recognize her talent – what a voice! – but her precocious dancing, her outfit, the bizarre enthusiasm of the judges and the audience, her mother watching … it just perfectly encapsulates all my fears about raising a daughter in this world. –Betty Confidential
If you look at the links available on the page the quote above came from, you’ll see the irony immediately. Here we have someone who revels in worldliness, in the animal instinct, and she’s shocked by the sight of an 8 year old girl dressed up as Lady Gaga. She literally cried through the video, her heart broken because of this video.
She’s not the only one saying the pop scene is becoming oversexualized because of its effect on children. Here is a writer discussing Mike Stock, someone who is (apparently) famous in the music industry.
He believes it’s all gone too far: ‘These days you can’t watch modern stars — such as Britney Spears or Lady Gaga — with a two-year-old. ‘Now, 99 per cent of the charts is R&B and 99 per cent of that is pornography.’ … If you dare to challenge the ‘anything goes’ conventions of our society you get dismissed as a prude. … Sleaze and Gaga are two sides of the same coin, which wouldn’t matter if all this took place between consenting adults. … But any eight-year-old can watch this stuff on the TV or computer — and they do. ‘Mothers of young children are worried because you can’t control the TV remote control,’ says Mike Stock. ‘Before children even step into school they have all these images — the pop videos and computer games, such as Grand Theft Auto — confronting them, and the parents can’t control it.’ –Dailymail
But why are they surprised? If the human is essentially a sexual animal, if pleasure —physical and emotional— is to be valued above all other things in the world, why are we shocked by an 8 year old acting out the adult world they are moving in to? …
We somehow want to protect our children from being hyper sexual when they are young, and then, when we’re ready, create hyper sexual adults out of them. We want our children to be children, but we want adults to be animals. What we are finding is there’s no way to bring this result about. If the adult is an animal, then the child is an animal. If the child is not to act like an animal, then the adult shouldn’t, either. What we are seeing, in reality, is just an effect of the way God built the world.
Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator… Romans 1:22-23
We are claiming to be wise; let our children be innocent, but our adults be bad. We believe we can hang on to our humanity in childhood, but once we’ve adults, we can live a life of sexual abandon.
