You can run, but you can’t hide…..

31 Jul

Last night, we had company over. Somehow, we got to talking about the 90’s and being in high school which led to singing some old song lyrics and just having a great time.

I grabbed the computer and we played around on YouTube for a good hour laughing and sharing stories.

Through this reminiscing and watching old videos – we started talking about celebrities and how some of the girls that the guys used to think were so pretty actually look ridiculous now or are all strung out on drugs.

This led me to do a google search on different names we were all throwing out there.

I was mortified.

I didn’t recognize many of the names. ((Side confession – I don’t watch or read the news at all. My husband tells me about recent events but other than people blabbing about it on their Facebook feeds, I just don’t see it at all.))

And to my extreme disappointment, I couldn’t initially tell what they were famous for just by googling their name. To the right of the screen immediately pops up a number of images of the person’s name you type in. And sadly, a good handful off these pictures were pornography.

I got really angry. It made me indignant that it was impossible to tell if the person was a singer, actress, news anchor, or professional sports player. I would have guessed they were all famous for being models.

In fact, someone suggested a person who is famous for being a Christian and I’m questioning that truth based on the images I saw of her.

It makes me disgusted that someone can’t be famous because of their accomplishments. That alone isn’t enough. They have to be famous for their naked or half-naked bodies, first.

And then I grew even more filled with rage that if my husband or children google these names, they will see these pictures.

After being appalled by the images popping up, one of our guests said “I can’t believe how surprised you are that there are naked women on the internet.”

And the thing is, I’m not surprised by that — but I’m broken-hearted that you don’t have to be looking for naked images for them to be thrust upon you.

I guess it was just another reminder of how incredibly hard it is for men and women to stay pure. God help us all.

    Might those pictures be fakes?

      I don’t believe that is the case 😦 …. but it would make me feel a slight bit better if that were true.
