New single by Vita Adam “Own It”, was co written with Andy De Silva and is all about changing culture. “Own It” is all about taking back words that we use every day, words with meaning that are often distorted by pop culture or the media, and redefining their definitions and the images attached to them. What is hot? Sexy? Provocative? Beautiful? If we google these words, there is a very high percentage of over sexualised images attached to them. It’s about understanding that every single one of us has the power to be a culture changer, and it begins with how we think, speak and therefore behave. We are all leaders, regardless of our age or whether we are up on a platform or not. So get excited and “Own It”.
Pornography is molding and conditioning the sexual behaviours and attitudes of boys, and girls are being left without the resources to deal with this reality.
My own engagement with young women over the last few years in schools around Australia confirms that we are conducting a pornographic experiment on young people — an assault on their healthy sexual development. Melinda Tankard Reist
If women were truly equal, and treated with equality and respect, such treatment would be unthinkable. They wouldn’t be objectified, sexualised, and treated as fodder for the twin industries of prostitution and pornography. The second class status of women makes all this possible.
