This thread is MUNG'd. Oh, wait, that's not a proper acronym. But it's recursive; I like that. Mmmm, recursive...


MUNG == MUNG Until No Good

Mace Windu is the only one at fault here.

Anyone who carries a huge purple penis in his hand and looks like he knows how to use it is guilty in my book.

Well the problem with these sort of studies is that they've been done so many times. They used to say this sort of stuff about Elvis Presley and his sexual hip movements when he danced. We laugh now, but then they really thought he was influencing that sort of stuff.

Granted, I personally don't think you can blame anyone but the child and the parent for their inability to independently think about sex and sexual behavior.

However, I think the article has some merit. If the parent isn't being, what I would say, enough of a parent then of course the child will refer to things like music, their peers, the internet, etc for their sex 101 education. And when they do this, you have Tupac, 50 Cent, and Jay-Z teaching your kids about sex and how to treat the opposite sex.

This is sort of common sense to me though. If the bond and relationship between child and parent isn't strong enough and the parent lets the child rely on other sources as their way of learning things, of course you're going to get children learning about sex earlier, and children learning about sex inappropriately, as well as children learning how to treat each other incorrectly.

If there's anything to gain from the article, it's a reminder to parents to stop letting the TV, radio, and computer raise your kids for you. Take an active role in your child's life. No matter how uncool you might be to them for it, in the end you're their parent first, friend second.
