The Importance of the Female Self Image
There is an overwhelming amount of males in today’s youth that practice disrespectful behaviors towards women because of the lack of respect females have for themselves shown by their exploitation in the media. These sorts of behaviors are detrimental to family life, the upbringing of children, the foundations of marriage, and societies view on the quality of life. These issues are extremely evident through today’s popularity of promiscuous activity. People of all ages can see that various modern forms of media are promoting an increase of sexual behavior to viewers. Sex and relationships are no longer valued or perceived as women are exploited more extremely today than anytime ever before and they are at fault for allowing the “domino effect” of events that follow.
Society tells us to look for happiness in ways that give us pleasure. The problem with this is that we are losing sight of the tenderness, commitment, compassion, and love that can take place between a man and a woman. Man and woman complement one another in physical and emotional ways that are suitable to the survival of our race. As our American culture progresses through time we are slowly forgetting what once existed between the sexes. The concept of having sex with someone for reasons other than lust are being lost and the line for the number of sexual encounters that is acceptable is no longer visible.
Promiscuity in men may cheapen love but can sharpen thought while promiscuous women are like an illness. They show a loss in identity for themselves and the destruction of a perk of life with beautiful intentions. Women that sleep around end up losing all that is feminine and idealistic inside of them. Womankind is supposed to be the backbone of society but they are letting that expectation backfire by failing to meet their natural standards. They are expected to be the sex that brings life to humankind and assumes the natural motherly responsibilities that follow.
Promiscuity in woman originates by the way that they view themselves and their worth as a woman. Some women’s self esteem is so low that they will involve themselves in sexual relations with a man because society tells them that their self worth revolves around who will sleep with them. This pressure caused by present day media is skewing women’s opinion of themselves and the females around them. Everything about American culture is telling them to be sexier and that the world demands that from them. This expectation poisons female’s minds and uses it against them. Women begin to aim so hard on pleasing others that they begin to destroy their image and lose the ability to eventually complete their natural motherly duties successfully.
Modern day women no longer value these responsibilities and they are failing to fulfill their duties as mothers. Women argue that men are impregnating young mothers and not fulfilling their fatherly roles, but this problem is easily avoidable by the woman. If they weren’t living such promiscuous lifestyles than the problem of having children out of wedlock with non-existent fathers wouldn’t exist. Woman with multiple children from multiple fathers would not be complaining about needing child support from either the fathers or the government. If women are the backbone of society than they need less sexual relationships to take care of whatever children they may already have so that the future of society’s youth has a more mature idea of the quality of life. It is up to women to control sexual behaviors because of their weaker sex drive than males. Women are naturally more temperamental when it comes to giving up their reproductive parts to a male that they are attracted to. "Sexual desire in women is extremely sensitive to environment and context," says Edward O. Laumann, PhD, a professor of sociology at the University of Chicago and lead…
