CNN Columnist Solves Issue of Sexual Assault

A few weeks ago Roxanne Jones, by-lined as 2010 Woman of the Year from Women in Sports and Events, wrote an article at CNN with an astonishing perspective on sexuality in the modern era.

First, she notes how she sent her son off to college:

I filled my son’s duffel bag with about 300 condoms and told him watch out for party girls but have fun; meet new people but stay focused on academics…

Parents need to step up. I’m doing my part, raising a son to respect women…

Given the current culture, she feels she may have left out an important message for the modern era [emphasis added]:

Never have sex with a girl unless she’s sent you a text that proves the sexual relationship is consensual beforehand. And it’s a good idea to even follow up any sexual encounter with a tasteful text message saying how you both enjoyed being with one another — even if you never plan on hooking up again.

Before you sex, you must have text!

There you have it. Handle “consent” — the highlight of many controversial sexual assault cases, even in the US military — with a text message. Problem solved.

This is the culture of sexuality in society — the same society from which the US military is drawn.  It would seem the “old fashioned” ideas of self-control, self-discipline, respect (in the true sense), and ultimately moral character — encapsulated in the idea that men and women should make it their goal to preserve themselves for a God-ordained, lifelong marriage — have truly gone by the wayside.

And to think people criticized Air Force Chief of Staff General Mark Welsh for saying the cultural “hook up mentality” plays a role inside the military today…

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh…
