Stephen Colbert described Sex and the City as the “story of four shopaholic whores.” He said he meant that in the"nicest" way.
A few days ago, a writer in a local newspaper gave a concise explanation of the reason for shows and movies like Sex and the City - equality between the sexes. What does that mean? It appears that the kind of equality being mentioned is this: today, relatively attractive women with money can use and abuse men in the same manner as relatively attractive men with money use and abuse women.
Cougar Town was also mentioned as part of this trend. An older woman makes lewd remarks about young men and hopes to have sex with them.
The writer goes on to say that ‘true equality’ will only occur when nobody cares about such behavior anymore. Another example of, “Hey. What’s the big deal?” This moral indifference raises practical questions. Isn’t love preferable to occasional sexual encounters? Why do 48% of black women have genital herpes? Why are one in five people in the United States walking around with an STD?
Is “just sex” preferable to true love, commitment, trust and sharing?
Saint Paul tells us to flee from sexual immorality, the media wants us to celebrate it.
