Like most, if not all, I was shocked by the atrocious video spreading across the internet of the fourteen-year-old girl giving a blowjob, and on school grounds at that. Surprisingly, last night I was watching the lifetime movie ‘She’s Too Young’ about 14-year-old kids being overly sexually active. It really brought me out of the naivety of still believing that kids today were in fact kids and not even having such thoughts already. What a wake-up call did I get when it came to me like a bright light that we’re living in a world so much different from when I was at that age.
First of all, technology has advanced and so has the minds of young people these days. I realized many are bashing this girl and coming down hard on her for doing what she did, not only in public but at school with other boys videoing her. But did it ever cross their minds that these boys have issues too? Actually, when I saw the news and tweets, I couldn’t help but think about her home life and the kind of values instilled in her, if there were any. She has stated that “everyone thinks my mother and father are around,” which clearly signifies to me that they’re both not in the picture and circumstances prevented them from being the kind of parents she needs. She has also expressed her feelings on being suicidal due to the hateful comments AKA cyber bullying coming her way.
It’s definitely hard to raise kids in today’s society filled with the dreadful pressures of wanting to fit in and be liked by your peers, as well as young girls believing they have to perform “special favors” for a boy to like them. And let’s not ignore the kind of images being portrayed in the media by entertainers. The young teen did say her role models are Kim K and Trina. I know you can’t blame these women for what’s going on with kids today but maybe they can do more to help young girls like the one in this case.
It’ll make sense to enforce the importance of protecting your youth, your innocence. They’re so young and have years to think about stuff like sex so why rush it? Why let it all go before you’re even old enough to drive, much less work full time to earn a decent living? When did kids stop being kids and started exploring life like grown folks? I guess as the world continues to change and the media keeps pushing things in their faces, stuff like this will keep happening when there’s so much influencing their young minds. Still, I hope the girl involved, as well as those boys, receive some sort of counseling ’cause Lord knows they need proper training as to how to treat women appropriately instead of disrespecting them the way they did this girl, but then again sex education doesn’t seem to be working in schools. And I’m sure this is probably going to happen again in the near future and has been happening with kids around the globe.
By the way, this should not be a trending topic on twitter because it’s only escalating the issue even further and making it more difficult for the parties involved. Adults should be more mature in this situation, instead of encouraging they should be preventing. Grown people should not be googling this video to get off. What’s happening to humanity?
This is just my opinion. What do you think about it?
