Very powerful story. I just added her book to my Amazon cart in advance of her re-release later this spring. Grateful for women who have endured, and then found their voice, because they’re helping all of us find ours.
This is awesome!!! Thank you, Hilton!
Well said, Bishops Seitz.
So many girls I know love and adore this fashion show, and are taught to by the culture around them including parents.
What as a society have we become if this is the peak of aesthetics? What have we come to if aesthetics are all that make up the value of a woman?
DON’T WATCH IT.
“When Nathan started using internet pornography, he found that over time it somehow got less and less exciting. His daily routine soon included hours spent consuming porn, yet he had grown “almost numb to it,” he recalls. Like many men with addictions, he was discovering that the compulsive use of porn dulls the pleasure receptors of the brain, forcing them to seek ever-greater amounts of stimulation in a desperate quest for sexual satisfaction.
But Nathan was not yet a man. He was just twelve years old.”

“Every compulsive gambler, alcoholic or drug addict will tell you that they want increasingly more of a game or drink or drug in order to get the same quality of buzz.
Video game and porn addictions are different. They are “arousal addictions,” where the attraction is in the novelty, the variety or the surprise factor of the content. Sameness is soon habituated; newness heightens excitement. In traditional drug arousal, conversely, addicts want more of the same cocaine or heroin or favorite food.”
“A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that “regular porn users are more likely to report depression and poor physical health than nonusers are. … The reason is that porn may start a cycle of isolation. … Porn may become a substitute for healthy face-to-face interactions, social or sexual.””
Wow. In a secular news source, admitting this is a problem. I’m impressed, but secretly devastated that the problem is so perverse that even CNN publicly acknowledges it.
