Sex and the City

How anyone with half a brain could repeatedly watch such pornographic trash is a mystery to me. Here is a review which puts the whole sordid phenomenon in perspective.
Modern feminism devalued home life, and encouraged women to abandon the home in favor of careers. In a short time, many of the morals that western culture took for granted were imperiled. Women would be like men: ambitious, lacking self-restraint, sexually promiscuous — remarkably like the women in the film. Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte have all arrived just in time to apply an upscale sense of style to a city in ruins.

I don't see how anyone can watch that stuff either. I've never been much of a TV watcher, but a few years ago someone mentioned that show to me. When I said I'd never seen it but that it sounded like I wouldn't like it, he proceeded to tell me about an incident from it which was completely disgusting. "It was so funny," he said.

Of course, this man was molested as a child, for years, and as an adult has been exceedingly promiscuous. He's basically a good man, but what he went through warped his attitude towards sex. It's a shame.

The fact that such programs are so popular is a sad commentary on our culture and society.

I was surprised that some Catholic moms watched this show!

Me, too. There are some things that are so debased that no one should watch them, unless they have a duty of writing reviews so that people can be forewarned.

Thanks for the link to such an insightful review. I've never watched the TV show and haven't gone to the movie, but it's one of those things where you have to be a hermit not to have heard of it, not to be aware of its cultural impact, especially among women - and that is very sad.

The reviewer mentioned the move of production away from the home during the industrial revolution as a reason for the degradation of men which preceeded the degradation of women. I always get a little nervous with economic explanations as they smack of Marxism, but I guess it must be admitted that some economic arrangements make it easier to live a good Christian life than others.

One of my daughters steered me to this blogspot, telling me that it is edifying. It is indeed. God bless you.

Thanks for the review. It gives me something to quote to friends who trot out the age-old accusation "You haven't seen it,so how can you say it's bad?" A little like "You haven't taken arsnic, so how do you know it'll kill you?"!!
