So a “study” (which grant money was wasted, btw?) determines that kids who listen to music with sexually explicit lyrics are more likely to have sex.
They, of course, decide that listening to the music is what causes the sex. Agenda, anyone?
“We think that really lowers kids’ inhibitions and makes them less thoughtful”
Wow. So despite other researchers who say things like, “It’s a little dangerous to just pinpoint one thing. You have to look at everything that’s going on in a young person’s life. When somebody has a healthy sense of themselves, they don’t take these lyrics too seriously” or kids, who say they don’t even hear the lyrics, they just listen for the beats, these researchers have come to a determination on why teenagers are having sex. Notice who whole-heartedly agrees: David Walsh, a psychologist who heads the National Institute on Media and the Family, said the results make sense. I’m sure they make a lot of sense to him, sex is evil to him.
Studies like this are such a waste of time. Let’s see, is it at all possible that kids that are more inclined to have sex are also more inclined to listen to sexually explicit music, thus explaining the increased numbers? Hmm? If this study were an LSAT question, it would be logical flaw all over the place.
