I WANTED TO…

I WANTED TO…

I wanted to write a poem

On man’s attitude toward

How to treat women…

It seemed above-board.

I thought  a healthy attitude

Of respect some distance required…

A way to avoid getting close,

Until meeting the girl inspired.

Then Jimmy and Karen Evans,*

The ministry…MARRIAGE TODAY…

Told of a study

That tore my assumptions away.

Jimmy Evans cited a study,

He didn’t say just where…

Where young men saw “R” movies

Which changed attitudes they shared.

After watching but three movies,

Don’t know the measures used…

Young men thought women were objects

For pleasure being abused.

Although the study didn’t measure

Woman’s views to any degree…

Would be logical how girls view themselves

Depends on female roles seen.

These attitudes must’ve been learned somehow,

Originally through Mom and Dad…

Observing them and folks outside

Molding the attitudes had.

We seem to learn by example

Through parents and movie roles…

Respect for women or playing the vamp,

Whichever is etched on souls.

–Jonathan Caswell

* See http://marriagetoday.com/ .  I believe the subject came up during the September 29, 2013, TV broadcast.
