Well it looks like Pinterest is going crazy now…
I was recently followed by someone who has a board entitled Song of Songs, which references the book, Song of Solomon. So I instinctively followed this person only to find out that his Song of Solomon Pinterest board was nothing but naked men and naked women with Bible verses on them.
Now for some I realize that a photo of a nude person is not pornographic in any sense of the word and it is considered art. And it can be very beautiful regardless of gender in the photo, but come on…
The Pinterest app, of course was not designed for this. That’s not the issue as sexual images are everywhere. Heck even I have a board entitled sexual and sensual. But it is love quotes with a dressed man and woman in the photos. Well…mostly dressed.
But young people get on there to find cute pictures of kittens and puppy dogs and birds and you know…how to make a swing in your backyard not to see pictures of naked people.
Am I overreacting because of my background or am I really just concerned for this generation that is coming up behind us?
I don’t want the younger generation so sexually messed up as the one I grew up in.
I mean it’s crazy…not only does it hit us on billboards and commercials…now its everywhere.
I mean just talking about commercials alone…what in the world does a woman in a bathing suit have to do with selling a hamburger? Nothing.
But, I don’t want to get sidetracked. Pinterest will not know that a photo that someone pinned is of a naked person because they don’t monitor what is being pinned unless someone lets them know. I can’t fault Pinterest.
I guess I really shouldn’t be shocked at all. Sexual images is everywhere!
Parents just be mindful of what your young person could see
