Women, What happened?

The person who posted this picture asks a very valid question.  What did happen?

We lost class somewhere along the way, in the last 50 years; a lot of class, and a lot of self-respect.  This prompted a conversation between myself and a friend, and she mentioned that "standards aren't an individual thing but a collective when it comes to things like fashion and behavior."

Yes, thanks to role models like Madonna, Britney Spears and Katy Perry, (and countless others) there are enough women out there dressing like trash to make men in general think of women as disposable people, to be used once or twice and then thrown out, or changed.  There are exceptions thank God - and I mean thank God literally because most of those exceptions probably have some kind of intimate relationship with Him.

It certainly creates a problem for those girls who perceive themselves as much more than trash and deserving not only of respect but some kind of chivalry.  Try to find a man these days who doesn't expect to hop into bed with you on the first date.  Try to find a man who is more interested in your mind and soul than your body.  They are out there, they're just a very small minority.  It makes the pool of suitable partners for a self-respecting girl that much smaller.

But it's not just a problem for the classy girl.  How many preventable heartbreaks will the trashy girl go through in a lifetime before she finally gets that trash equals disposable?  Will she ever get it?  That's what is so sad about our society.
