So, if there are sex ed classes starting as early as 7th grade why don’t, along with these classes, the school boards add a “How to be a gentleman” class? I mean, can you imagine if there was such a class starting in 7th grade all the way up until 12th??? If parents are too busy to monitor what their children watch/listen to, somebody’s gotta teach these boys how to treat others, but especially women with honor and respect.
Think about it: the media is teaching guys how to treat women. Lil Wayne’s teaching young men how to basically rape women and according to Time Magazine he’s, “The best rapper alive.” I’m really ticked off right now when you think of what this magazine is saying. A guy who talks about demanding women to “bust open like they’re sposed to,” and more disgusting things I don’t even want to repeat in this blog is the best? What about Lecrae? A young rapper who tells men, that God “Taught us that real leaders follow God, Finish the work ’cause we on our job Taught us not to rob But give life love a wife like He loved the Church, Not seeing how many hearts we can break first,” and tells young women, “Mami show respect for your body Instead of getting naked and naughty Like sex is a hobby You know what you’re supposed to do Let him loose and cling to the God that wants to get close to you.”
I honestly feel somewhat bad for young men because they’re being bombarded with lies like, “Treat a girl like a dog because she isn’t worth as much as you are and it’s what all grown men are doing who got money and fame,” constantly. The influence of the media is astounding. Then most of their guy friends are being fed the same things so they’re not great influences either.
What were to happen if young men began to stand up and say, “No, I’d rather follow God than Lil Wayne?” Can you imagine that? How many of you ladies, even if you’re not sure if you believe in God, would want a guy that follows the media or a guy who follows God? If you were honest, you’d want option B.
Here’s the wonderful thing: there are more guys out there rebelling against the media and following God than you think. But princesses, you’re not going to run into him at a club, a bar, a party or what have you. He’s too busy honoring the God he serves than to get entangled into those things. These guys are the dream guys, these guys are the real princess, the gentlemen. Now, there are guys out there who don’t necessarily believe in God, yet you’d say they are gentleman and treat you right. Well, I would argue that unconsciously, they’re following God because morals are written in their hearts and they are stronger minded and can discern that some of the crap out there in movies and on the radio isn’t right. I commend them. BUT, if the guy you’re with happens to be a “good guy” according to your standards, let me ask you one thing: is he having sex with you?
“Oh, Natasha, don’t get all old school on us again like you always do,” well, I have to. I would be lying to you if I said, “Oh yeah, that’s fine. He’s a great guy for having sex with you and not other girls.” It just isn’t so. If there are guys who are willing NOT to have sex with you because they want to honor and respect you, that’s a great guy! But unfortunately, most men aren’t taught that way. It’s only a true man of God that holds such convictions as, “Respect a girl until you’re man enough to walk her down an aisle.” And really, princess, would you want anything less? If you had a choice to either have a guy who would wait for you or a guy who would not, what would you choose?
Maybe you think there’s nothing wrong with pre-marital sex so you don’t care if a guy would wait or not, but I ask you to check out my page, “premarital sex is damaging to the brain?” and to really contemplate the cons to premarital sex because there’s plenty.
So to wrap it up, bad news: most of the crap you here on power 96 sucks and is enlisting guys to be rapists
Good news: there actually are gentlemen out there who would honor, respect and cherish you like the princess you are. How to snag one of them: get to know and love God to the point where finding a prince doesn’t matter as much to you as God does and then He’ll work out the rest.
With passion and loving concern for all you precious princesses,
