America’s Teens At Risk

March 25, 2023

Teenage Mental Health.

A Fox News report (ref) on 3/14/23 indicated that the Center For Disease Control and Prevention (A 2021 Youth Risk Behavior Survey) reported that 57% of U.S. teen girls “felt persistently sad or hopeless in 2021.” This was double that measure for boys and the highest level reported in over a decade.

Furthermore: “While all teens reported increasing mental health challenges, experiences of violence, suicidal thoughts and behaviors, girls faired worse than boys across nearly all measures”. More than 40% of high school teens said they were “so sad or hopeless that they could not engage in their normal activities for at least two weeks.”

Of Teen students who identified “as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or questioning, 52% had recently suffered poor mental health” and 22% had attempted suicide in the past.

A “stark increase in harmful experiences among teen girls” was noted.
Almost 18% “experienced sexual violence in the past year”, an increase of 20% since 2017. Nearly 30% of girls “had seriously considered about attempting suicide”, an increase of close to 60% from a decade ago. Almost 15% said they were forced to have sex, an increase of 27% since 2019.

This news, that was also reported by other more liberal sources should be terrifying to all Americans. These traumas and resulting psychological problems are very difficult to treat and recover from.

These teens are destined to be America’s future parents and leaders in little more than 10 short.

Vote accordingly!

Another Dead Girl

March 3, 2010

Another Dead Girl

I woke up again to the news: Another dead girl, killed by a homicidal sexual predator. Over and over again our beautiful children and young women are sexually savaged and brutally killed. Why?!

In 1967, President Johnson appointed a commission on Obscenity and Pornography. In 1970, that commission reported that there was no evidence that exposure to explicit material led to antisocial behavior.

In 1973, the supreme court (Miller v. California) produced a ruling that made censorship of sexually explicit materials almost impossible.

In 1985, The Attorney General’s Commission on Pornography reviewed updated research of improved design, and published conclusions that contradicted the 1970 no harm report. It stated that the 1970’s report was “starkly obsolete”.

The “newly identified” harmful effects of pornography were attributed to violent and degrading pornography. The primary mode of damage was considered to be through modeling and imitation. Modeling and imitation is a  highly researched and  profoundly powerful mode of psychological influence. This is another example of science proving the obvious, because this was a historically cultural-wide  forgone conclusion, as well as the reason for America’s  laws against pornography in the first place.

But it was too late. We had opened another of Pandora’s Boxes. The infrastructure of Hollywood, the exploding internet, and the billions of dollars to be made through the production and marketing of pornography promised untold riches to the naked puppets and the producers of the gateway drug to sexual mayhem in America and throughout the world.

So many fools bought the legal/governmental assertion that the 1st Amendment should protect florid and vivid  “anal escapades”, “money shots”, “golden showers”, “torrid teens”, and Sado/masochistic depictions that so excited the masses of adults and their children. The children whose sexual appetites and mental scripts for their actions have increasingly been shaped by the sexual depictions of the pornography industry.

Through all of this,  our increasingly  sex addicted population never perceived its revenue addicted government lusting for the new tax revenues that the legalized pornography would bring them.

 A mutual masturbatory relationship made in  hell that has created hell on earth.

To those who will criticize my take on the legalization of pornography. I am aware that there are multiple determinants of sex crimes and damaging sexual activities in our population. Say what you will. Nothing mitigates the damaging effects of legalized Porn.

The following is something that I wrote a long time ago, after one of my many professional encounters with the horrors of the pornification of America.


His aunt brought him to me thinking I might be able to help. The nine-year-old’s mother had drugged him and performed a variety of sex acts with him while her boyfriend video-taped their actions. They abandoned the child and would try to market the videotape.

I tried everything but he would not talk. His face was empty, as though his life had been ripped from deep within him. The child complied with his aunt’s requests to sit and to look at me, but he never spoke. There were no tears or fear, only emptiness.

The aunt told me that she was caring for the boy. She said that she would be moving from the area within the week and thought that a session with a psychologist would help.

The session did not help, nor would dozens of sessions have helped.

What will become of this child and the countless others like him?

It is likely that they, like those who damaged them, will spread their dark and silent eyes among the children in their lives.

The most destructive force of all: psychopathogenic contagion.
