Naked Miley Cyrus Makes Me Sad

The new Miley Cyrus video features the former Disney star totally nude and licking a sledgehammer (no, I am not going to link it).  Pardon me while I go on a old fogey rant.

It seems that, in the entertainment world, when a female child star wants to transition into the realm of adult entertainment, they declare their adulthood by performing in some sexually explicit way.  I hate the message that this sends young girls--that they've reached adult status when they become a sex toy for men.

I hate interviews where woman proclaim that they are "empowered" by being sexually promiscuous.  You know who is really being empowered?  Men who want to have sex with a lot of women without any commitment.  Who loses?  The women who had given themselves to a man hoping to find love and commitment.

There isn't such a thing as "no strings attached" sex despite what Hollywood sells.  Tara and I sometimes joke with each other, "I like you better than everybody else."  But there's a subtext to that joke:  everyone deserves to be special to someone else.  Love doesn't mean participating in a human buffet.
