Teen Vogue’s “Back to School” List Celebrates Our Nation’s Moral Decay

In the past, I’ve been forced to acknowledge the existence of Teen Vogue magazine, simply because the depths of depravity they seek to drag our children to has no apparent bottom. Parents, aunts, uncles, and/or siblings who have young women between the ages of 13 and 17 (Teen Vogue’s target audience) they care about need to be aware, before they buy that subscription, or allow this open sewer to invade their homes.

In a recent article, titled “Back to School Awards 2017: The Best Health and Wellness Products,” they begin innocently enough, listing best essential oils and workout equipment. It soon, however, takes an insidious turn.

Moving from feminine hygiene products (perfectly acceptable fare for high school girls), it drops off the deep end and fires its first shot across the bow of decency.

In listing the “best feminine hygiene wipes,” young girls are greeted with this:

Sex is fun, but it sure is messy. These wipes will be there for you when you’re finished, but can’t hightail it to a shower. They’re also formulated not to mess with your vaginal pH, keeping things happy until your next sex-pedition.

That’s right. Your 13-year old child is being told how to take what is, in some quarters, called a “wh**e’s bath.”

And sex?

Just casual fun for a casual age.

The article goes on to list several vibrators, because what teen girl’s life is complete without constant sexual stimulation?

And if you’re talking about vibrators, the next step has got to be lubricant.

This silicone-based lubricant is the best for a long-lasting, silky-smooth sensation for solo time or with a partner. This lube does not need to be reapplied as often as the other silicone-based products we tested.

There are several listings for condoms and feminine wash, but it finishes off (of course) with an illustrated sex education book:

You might be thinking you don’t need a sex ed book, but this graphic novel covers way more than just the birds and the bees. You’ll find illustrated guides to talking about consent, relationships, beginnings, and endings, in a way that challenges heteronormative standards about getting down.

I’m leaving out the name of this book because I won’t be the one promoting it, in any fashion, whatsoever.

In July, Teen Vogue featured a how-to story on anal sex, leaving out the part about the health risks from fissures and tearing in the rectal walls. Rather, they referred to sodomy as “perfectly natural.”

It’s not.

Several months ago they also featured a story that promoted fun, funky gifts for your post-abortion friends.

How depraved can they get? And please, that’s not a challenge.

I can’t say it enough, and if it sounds like old fashioned fire-and-brimstone preaching – GOOD. We’ve apparently let ourselves get so far away from the path of commonsense, for the sake of “tolerance” that the barbarians have taken control.

And they are after our children.

The lack of moral upbringing in our homes has left our culture vulnerable, and it is folly to suggest any negative consequences are unrelated. Maybe a return to a bit of fire-and-brimstone is warranted.

2 Peter 2:14 AMP“They have eyes full of harlotry, insatiable for sin. They beguile and bait and lure away unstable souls. Their hearts are trained in covetousness (lust, greed), [they are] children of a curse [ exposed to cursing]!”

At this point, I have very little concern for those who would insist that morality is relative. We’re being asked to play by rules with an opponent who has no rules, respects no boundaries, and whose sense of community is steeped in hedonism.

Study after study has emerged to show that teens who enter into sexual relationships early not only run the risk of sexually transmitted diseases or unplanned pregnancies, but they are at higher risk for depression, and even suicide attempts.

An industry that cares more for challenging social and moral norms than the well-being of our society’s children should be shunned and shuttered, with extreme malice.

We can’t live like this. Our children shouldn’t be subjected to this. Our society will, ultimately, pay for this.
