There’s no question that sexual assault is an epidemic in the U.S. There’s no question that we are right to be outraged by the brutish behavior of Hollywood bigshots like Harvey Weinstein and that such behavior should result in serious consequences of both the social and legal variety. The real question is: When will we open our collective eyes and recognize that widespread sexual misbehavior is an inevitable byproduct of a sex-saturated culture?
Our opposition to indecent behavior seems to be a mile wide and an inch deep. While we are remarkably unified in our disdain for sexual harassment and assault, that galvanized opposition doesn’t extend to the epidemic’s underlying causes. We’re complacent toward the cultural trends that constantly push sex and sexuality upon our conscious and subconscious thoughts, the efforts to deaden our sensibilities and erase the boundaries that once defined a concept of decency.
Sex, in its proper place, is a good thing. The problem is that the overwhelming message of our culture is that sex without limits is the ultimate thing.
The magazines displayed in checkout lines tell us who had sex with whom. Much of the music we listen to contains lyrics that are explicitly or implicitly sexual. Sex and references to it are commonplace on prime-time television. And as the parent of a teenager, I can tell you it’s almost impossible to find a non-animated movie without a sex scene.
But we can’t blame Hollywood for everything.
