Christina Ricci poses for BlackBook's May issue. "I think people are learning to actually aspire to be objectified. It's like the highest form of flattery for teenage girls," she says in the mag.
This is the problem with our sex obsessed culture.
This product of Hollywood (that is what she has reduced herself to, a product) has summed it all up.
This is why pornography, Girls Gone Wild videos, going to strip joints, Hooters restaurants, prostitution, the sexualization of our children (the greatest crime of our culture) and casual sex are wrong and immoral.
These things are not immoral because there is something wrong with sex itself or with beautiful women or the naked human body. It is not sinful because Christians or religious people are prudes.
It is immoral because it takes a human being, something beyond precious in Gods eyes and turns that person into a simple object whose sole purpose is satisfy someone else's desire.
Once a person is objectified they are devalued and dehumanized and that may be the worst sin of all. At that point anything becomes possible. They are nothing more then an object not a unique person with a soul. You can then enslave them, exploit them, rape them, abuse them, even kill them.
They are just objects.
We as a society no longer understand this. We are lost and I am not sure we can collectively find our way back.
