Concern Grows For Young Girls Posting ‘Am I Pretty?’ Videos Online

• CBS Philly

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s a disturbing online sight, repeated hundreds if not thousands of times: girls, young teens or even younger, posting videos of themselves on YouTube asking the public to tell them if they are pretty.

For a 12- or 13-year-old, image is everything.  Many students at Haddonfield Middle School said they had seen these videos and found them troubling.

“Well, I feel really bad for the girls, that they have gotten to the point where they have to post videos,” said seventh grader Annie Gosse.  “They’ve probably been bullied at school about it.  And I feel like it’s really sad that they’ve gotten to that point, and they should get help before they do that.”

I support your knowledgeable critics who know a lot more than you do. What can you teach the young sexually aggressive generation when you cannot even tell them honestly because of your ignorance that your "Silver Circle" token silver round is NOT a legal tender? It cannot even be used to purchase sex because it is not a legal tender.  They will become even more out of control when their gold or silver teeth cannot be accepted as money.  And all because of your ignorance!

And police compete nationwide to catch the CraigList Killer. Why waste so much time and resources? Pretty young girls compete for the attention of the CraigList Killer. Let them have some fun. They are the Generation Next who wants to rule the world.   

They have a badge to show for their trip to the future and rule the world, according to Ernest Hancock -- ear-tongue-pierced, tattooed, drugged, sexually out-of-control young generation 18-25 years old. Ernie believes they will replace the older generation that would die of inanity and that the Government should leave them alone as absolutely free individuals who deserve a place under the sun.   

You may disagree, but you cannot disagree with their dream to be free and be left alone, can you? This means that in my disagreement … my concern is different – much deeper than what you just have in mind.  The CraigList Killer is just the symptom – not the sore itself.

I am just curious. I want to know who wants to join Ernie in his task to sweep dirt under the rug.

 This posing is disconerting. These girls set themselves up for not only depressing disappointments, but sexual predators. The world is a cruel place. Youth should look for appreciation close to home, and not pander to the superficial values so rife and rancid in the media. Real love is respectful and far more rewarding. It is not picked up like candy. Jesus is the libertarian of love!
