The Silent Destroyer

Over the past 6 months or so I’ve really gotten into VH1 television. Specifically Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew. Usually when this comes up in conversation, there’s a quick laugh and that “really?” look thrown my way. Yes, REALLY. Although it can be wildly entertaining to watch some of these people live day to day, my heart is completely broken for them. I carry an extreme hate for pornography or any sort of sexual abuse. I’ve been able to see first hand how these things can destroy a person from the inside out. When I was 5 until about age 9 I was sexually molested by a family member, and although it doesn’t effect my day to day life now there was a time it effected me every single day in a huge way. It broke me. It ruined my view on what God intended for me to understand about sex. How many people have experienced this same hurt? More than you can possibly imagine.
I hate hearing people say that pornography isn’t wrong, that it doesn’t effect them. It angers me. Especially when I watch members of my own family struggle with reclaiming their life due to porn. It’s poison. And the perfect opportunity for Satan to destroy you slowly, without you even realizing….before it’s too late.
On a more personal note, just speaking as a girl, I’m incredibly offended by pornography. Incredibly pissed. Incredibly degraded. The day I start feeling like I’m nothing more than a piece of meat, I’ll be sure to let you know.
Brian Mills posted a blog with a ton of facts about porn and its effects. In fact, I’ll blame him for getting me all fired up about this all over again. Check it out.
