SEX IS BIG: 16 DAYS OF SEX TALK(Day 8): SEX AND SEXUALITY: WHAT DO YOU KNOW? (3)

Culled from our Instructional Manuals: S.A.F.E™ for YOU

TIP 73

“If you can control yourself sexually, you can control yourself.  Period.” A. GREEN

I am sure you are doing great today my dear and precious young ones. I am sure you believe me when I tell you, you are dear and precious. You really are dear to my heart because, without you a family and a nation does not have a future. You are precious because you are the hope for today and the future both for yourself, your family and your nation.

So, if the next time you see the words, ‘dear’ and ‘precious’, as you have been seen it here, just know that I mean it with all my breath. How do you now know that you believe it? Yes, this is how you know, you will not treat yourself less than dear and precious and you will never allow any living being to treat you less than dear and precious.

It is a long introduction, right? Yes, I know, I just have this strong nudge in my heart to share this with you before I journey into our discussion today.

Yes, today, I am still looking at the Sex and Sexuality issues and I am asking the question: HAVE WE LOST CONTROL?

We all seem to have lost control in the face of over democratization of media platforms. Hmm…What is this big word, ‘over democratization of media platforms’? Do not mind me. It is the lawyer in me that wrote that. It simply means availability of many media platforms, particularly, social media platforms, which you are very much used to.

We are not able to define the pressure, not to talk accepting the need to acquire the requisite and inevitable skills to deal with same in our best interest as young people.

Today, the media, working and banking on our ignorance and unconsciousness does not teach you about your SEXUALITY. There is no plan in horizon on the part of today’s media, its promoters and investors and our caregivers to change their course of actions. The promoters and investors of the media smile to the banks, destroying the destiny of our precious children and young people, cruising comfortably at a very high altitude of our ignorance and nonchalance as both young and old.

The agenda of those who know better and seek to represent the protection of children from this war of indecent exposure and bastardization of their God-given and priceless gift of SEXUALITY is very high in unguarded anger and erratic intervention. The agenda of the defenders of our children is very weak in vision, strategy, tactics, persistency, selflessness and sense of mission. We often think that a good cause succeeds simply because it is good. Unknown to us, causes, good or bad succeed because of the total commitment of their champions to finding and adhering to superior strategy, based on critical thinking and intelligence. I guess that is why Montesquieu said, ‘power does not shift except for superior power.’

I have long argued that exposing children to inappropriate media contents, with direct sexual contents or suggestions constitutes nothing but sexual abuse as it perverts the children’s understanding of their sexuality. The implication of this is that it puts our precious children in a sad situation, where they participate actively in their own abuse either as perpetrated by a peer or an adult.

It is my  very SOBER and careful conclusion today that as you join this discussion, you must make a deliberate commitment to stop the present ugly tide, which prepares and serves you as a young person as ready prey of sexual abuse to your peers and adults.

You must begin serious conversations with your peers and caregivers, which aim is to help DISCOVER and DEFEND your SEXUALITY as a mental and spiritual tool to understand the essence of our gender and how to take adequate and informed steps to PRESERVE, PROTECT, DEFEND and CELEBRATE Same.

It is CHILDHOOD and its GLORY which come under cruel but subtle attack when our precious children are sexually abused through exposure to inappropriate materials.

The THINK Factor

I Charge you to think about our discussion today and ask yourself what you would do to join the fight to restore sanity to our airwaves, first in your personal life and second with people very close to you as family and friends. Do not take this lightly. Decide to do something, knowing that CHANGE starts with ONE and that ONE is YOU! Take time to really reflect and share your thoughts in your S.A.F.E™ 4 YOU Personal Journal.
