Has anybody every stopped to think how social media has changed since Facebook first came out in 2006? It actually disgusts me that social media is now used as a system where men and women flaunt half naked photographs of themselves to gain fans, likes, or friends.
Why must people do this? One simple reason: Insecurity. In this day and age, no matter how confident people may seem, everyone has a bit of insecurity. It is very sad to know that people care more about the amount of “friend” that they have online then that ones that they have in real life. What is also scary is the fact that young men and women (older too i may add) are posting these half naked photographs of themselves on the internet-THE INTERNET- the place where things stay on forever. Do these people not realize that when you google their name these photographs may show up? Do they not realize that when they are at a job interview the employer may see a picture of their “new bikini” shot the day after the interview when a google search was done? I guess they don’t think like that- or they do and just don’t care. Man oh man has society changed.
Growing up I was always taught to be conservative, never ruin your image, and never ruin your family name. We were taught that your body is a sacred thing that nobody should look at it or touch it until you are married. It was taught that you were not to have sex until you were married, and that boys will only want one thing from girls, so they should always keep their mouth and legs closed. I actually wasn’t allowed to date for many years, I had to sneak around behind my father’s back, in my father’s eyes it was wrong.
Now fast forward to 2013, where young girls are promoting themselves in a sexual manner on social media sites such as instagram, vine, facebook, and twitter. What happened to the innocence of childhood? What happened to self pride? Noone seems to know what that is anymore. Why must men and women think it is alright to post these things?
Does anyone have any self pride in this world anymore?
