Brave, New, Scary World

Brave, New, Scary World

It’s a different world out there from when I grew up and if you’re over the age of 25, it’s different for you too. Witness the phenomenon of “friends with benefits.” Kids don’t date anymore, they “hook up” because then they can have sex without the messy emotional entanglements. And if they’re not “hooking up” then their parents worry that their kids aren’t popular. Experimental lesbianism is cool. Internet porn is widely available, the Internet circumvents parental involvement and allows teens (and adults) to descend into a narcissistic and de-personalized social life.
