    Is Dakota Fanning’s New Movie a Bad Message for Girls?

    Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen currently are filming a new movie titled Very Good Girls. The premise? My understanding is that they are playing young friends who are graduating from high school. And they decide to make a pact to each lose their virginity after graduation.

    I don’t know the whole storyline and I’m not aware of the moral premise, if there is one, but I can’t help but be disappointed. Yet again we’re being offered a movie that puts sex in the forefront of a young girl’s ambition. For some reason, losing one’s virginity has become an objective, as if it’s just one goal on a bucket list.

    Being a virgin has become a stigma in our society even though waiting to have sex until marriage is the way of Christian teaching. But then again, being a Christian is also a stigma in our society, so it shouldn’t be surprising that striving for Christian values also would be ridiculed.

    I really believe the media plays a huge part in influencing young people and their everyday decisions. Many of the movies that come out of Hollywood are founded around a sexual encounter. If sex is not the primary focus, then it’s used to add “excitement” to the storyline. Sex sells, right? And Hollywood takes full advantage of this thinking.

    There are so many problems associated with this philosophy, however, and every one of them leads to destruction. Because sex is the primary focus in movies and on television, young viewers become obsessed with it. This often leads young girls to believe that sex is important, and if they’re not doing it, there’s something wrong with them.

    The reality is that sex is not meant to be a component of society. It’s not supposed to be an issue in school, where education should be the primary focus. It’s not supposed to be associated with social situations at all. Sex is supposed to be an issue only for a husband and his wife. That’s what Christ intended.

    Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge (Hebrews 13:4).

    Sex is supposed to be a private matter. But the media has taken it and placed it in the center of every situation. They’ve made it the be-all and end-all of every relationship. For this reason, sex has been devalued and any girl who desires to stay pure for her future husband is considered bizarre.

    PI ladies, what do you think about the premise of this upcoming movie? Do you find that girls in your school are obsessed with sex and losing their virginity?
