Default Today on Oprah

I just noticed that Oprah is doing a show on suburban teens having sex for
money. Yikes. I do wonder if these types of shows help give other kids
ideas.... like WOW.... I could be making ALL that money?? Hmm.

What's really surprising is that the parents never question where the
new clothes, cd's & stuff come from.

I think anybody that would be willing to consider that must by watching Oprah
would probably be talked into that sort of thing by other means.

I think this is a rerun or I've seen another show like it and TIME had an issue
about this. It was quite disturbing in that many of these girls did not seem
the least bit demeaned by having sex for money.

Many of them had parents working most of the time or no father at home and
parents making up for not being there by gving them money and things. So maybe
it's not that big of a stretch---when parents show love by giving money, to use
sex for money.

Not really, when you consider how busy these parents are and how little
attention they pay to what is going on in their kids lives.
