    I don't believe in culturally forcing people to be monogamous and a return to pre-60's traditional families is not realistic, I just think now we've swung too far the other way perhaps.
    I never suggested "culturally forcing people to be monogamous" and like you I don't believe in such policies nor that they would even work_

    I do however believe that the best place to teach children the values of "pre-60's traditional families" is in the home through family guidance and by example_

    When young men talk about young girls with vulgar disrespect and view them as nothing more than cheap easy sex objects, they will treat them as such_

    When young girls condone and accept this role assigned them by society they begin talking, dressing and acting like trashy sluts and will become whores_

    At age 25 and despite the fact that I was exposed to the same peer pressures and modern immoralities, I've never tolerated such disrespect nor acted like a slut_

    My brothers and I were raised in an environment where morality, respect and self-respect were passed on by parental guidance and demosnstrated by example__

    I am living proof that regardless of what much of modern society considers to be a "prudish" upbringing, it can and does work and I know for a fact that I'm not alone_

    People can be raised to embrace having healthy sex lives while still having love and respect for other people and oneself. It is prudish to equate a sexually active lifestyle with disrespect. Your post kind of conflates the two.

    I hate sexism and would like to see it end. Pre-1960's social culture was filled to the brim with sexism. Modern women can fight back against sexism but back then if they did, they might be put in a mental institution for "treatment". If you really desire a revival of that era's values so much then you're on your own.

    This isn't about you but about children, most of which will equate sex with love and get taken advantage of and even abused or set themselves up for a broken heart often leading to a serious meltdown which contributes to the teenage suicide rate_

    Pre-1960's parents were aware that children are not equipped to handle the mental stresses and emotions of a sexual relationship and particularly the multiple relationships which are so popular today especially when the pics get texted all over school and internet_

    Apparently you haven't heard about such things as sexting or hooking up or sex parties or contests involving sex dares and exploits, all of which are very common among today's children as young as 13 years old and sometimes even pre-puberty_

    As an adult, no one cares who what or how many men, women or farm animals you sleep with but taking into account what you posted I do hope you're not a parent because it's obvious that you're clueless about the mess so many children are in today_

    Abstinence only sex ed is equivalent to a driver ed class that just tells you not to drive. Ridiculous.

    The truth is most people are not monogamous and they don't have just one partner for a lifetime, and they never have and never will. DNA and other types of research has proven that people have never been truly monogamous.

    I'm not going to argue with you anymore because I don't think you fully read and understood my original arguments, and the second reason is that you are starting to insult me directly which is uncalled for.

    Have a nice night.

    Hmmmm....

    Thinking the same thing about Congress...

    We could harness all of their methane and probably heat most of DC for quite a while.....

    'Course, we could also replace all of them with cows and have substantially improve government from 535 bovines!
