Recently I have come across an amazing movement called Fight the New Drug, or FTND. This movement is finally taking a stand against something that has sadly be come a normal and accepted part of our society. Pornography. Pornography has slowly but surly crept into our everyday lives through music, movies, books, advertisement, and so forth.
When Television first came out a man and a woman were not allowed to be in the same bed for filming. Now that we have come to accept sex scenes and pornography, they show as much of it as they can on Television and movies. Just take 50 Shades of Grey as an example. Compare that movie to a few movies from a few decades ago, like Singin’ in The Rain, The King and I, Funny Face, and Some Like It Hot. Pretty different standards right? And what about our TV series that we love? Like Game of Thrones and Orange is The New Black. Compare those to I Dream of Jeannie or Green Acres. We have come a long way. And in some ways it’s wonderful and exciting! But things can also go a little too far.
Pornography is addictive and can hurt you. Maybe not physically. It’s not going to ball up its fist and literally punch you in the face or anything, but it does have harmful effects. I have seen too many marriages ruined, too many people have issues with self esteem, and too many people struggle with controlling their addiction to pornography to deny that it’s harmful.
It’s just as they say with a drug or alcohol addiction, You are not just hurting you, but the people around you too. We need to see pornography for what it is. A harmful addicting substance that can have horrible consequences. If you know someone struggling with this addiction, be there for them! It is so hard to go through an addiction alone. We can all be there and be supportive of each other. The number one thing you should know is, You’re not alone. It’s okay to ask for help. Reach out to someone you trust.
I ask you to look at FTND’s blog. Read up on the things they have posted and share it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, where ever you can! You can find FTND on all of these social media sites as well! I encourage you to look them up. I’m so glad I did. Now I know I am not the only one who feels the need to take a stand against pornography.
Check them out guys, you won’t regret it!
