Did you see the Super Bowl LIV ‘s half time performance?
Yes, it was awesome to note the Latin vibe and it’s representation.
Yes, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are talented and gifted performers.
Yes, it was awesome to see how they included the young kids…or was it?!
No! No it wasn’t!
In a world where sex trafficking is rampant and the #metoo movement is everywhere, I ask myself, how was tonight’s performance beneficial for those causes?
Tonight’s performance was NOT! Tonight’s performance was NOT pro-women! If anything the costumes, the poles, the cages, the ropes, all enforced and encouraged the behavior that we are trying get rid of! We are not objects, we are not caged creatures, or objects that should be tied up! It only visually enhanced the desired behavior of sex trafficking and of sexual assault.
If this is what we display, how can we tell young girls that we are standing with them, protecting them, and protecting their future? How do we teach young men respect when all we do is disrespect ourselves in front of them?
Tonight’s halftime show was NOT pro-women. Don’t believe it! Don’t buy into it!
You were created for so much more than this!! I encourage you, both men and women, to be beautiful by treasuring the creation that you are and who you are meant to be!
Your Creator, designed you to be so much more than the object the world says you are! I went down a long and challenging road to learn that what the world says is good and beautiful, is detrimental and gut wrenching. Don’t fall for it!!
Stand up and honor your Creator by honoring yourself and others.
