They’re running out of things for normals to get SHOCKED about.
Anal sex so she don’t get preggo isn’t one of those things that i think is *common*, but I don’t think it’s uncommon either, if that makes any sense.
For every teenager going through this stuff, it’s their first time around and there’s a lot of bullshit out there.
For most, this information will be dry, academic or at best, intriguing for its naughty factor
But maybe for a few, it’ll come in handy if they’re in that situation.
I’m ancient. Even back in the 80s, I’d hear girls talk about “if you go anal you won’t go pregnant” (stupid conversations I’d overhear talking down the hallway).
But I doubt it’s something they’d ever ask their “coach, teacher, priest, doctor or other trusted adult” about. They’d just trust the girl-gossip medical advice.
I agree. I think it can have a desensitizing effect. That part is true. The more you see it, the less you care about what it represents and you could reach a point where everything is entertainment to you, even if it’s real.
It might make some things acceptable that otherwise wouldn’t be.
But like you said, it’s nothing at all like a cause and effect. More like environment.
For example, X-Box culture is toxic.
Most dramatic difference I’ve seen is Minecraft. Minecraft PC has toxic and non-toxic communities. Nowadays it’s pretty non-toxic overall as the people who were toxic have moved on to other games.
Minecraft Wii U is mostly non-toxic.
But Minecraft X-Box, even though it’s nearly identical to the Wii U edition has a toxic community.
Yet, even there, it’s not as toxic as console shooter culture or GTA V but compared to the Minecraft worlds, it’s toxic.
I know because my nephew’s done all three and he’s brought it up a few times. Still, toxic can be fun. That’s why people do it.
Overwatch, his current obsession, apparently is toxic. But it’s nowhere the levels of toxic that you’ll find in the older titles. It seems the newer titles are attracting a younger crowd and even if they’re still toxic, they’re not as toxic as the old XBox game communities were/are.
He knows to stay away from those games. He sees them as “old people games” and he rolls his eyes if any of the friends his age start getting into them.
But the funny thing I’ve seen in his age group: They say the same things, “you’re a noob, get rekt / i’m gonna rape you” but they don’t mean it seriously. They don’t usually seem to get bent out of shape about it, veins popping out of their heads in anger and stuff.
I’m hoping the trend of their generation being mostly ironic about this stuff continues.
…for… a long time.
Far too long.
Looks like the guy that coined “Japanimation” stopped using it in 1999 and offered to change promotional materials to say “Anime” to retailers. He wasn’t happy about making the change but “Japanimation” really had to go. But he got rich off it so he had nothing to complain about.
