« Katie Couric - Tired Brand | Main | A Weighty Issue »

April 25, 2005


Being a "bad girl" may work in the short run for business profits, but in the long run it will further destroy our culture. Societies depend on women to uphold moral values and to challenge men to commit ourselves to issues and causes larger than our own selfish desires. When a woman chooses not to hook-up or live with a man, but makes him commit to her (and a more stable future) with an "I do," she's strengthening society as a whole. (Read George Gilder's classic MEN AND MARRIAGE.)

In our hearts, men long to be chivalrous to women, and long for women to inspire us to do what's right and best. Just as rappers' turning all women into "hos" has hurt society, in the long run being "bad girls" will only corrode women's positive influence in men's lives. Isn't helping hold society together more important than short-term branding goals and business profits?
