Will “Jane the Virgin” bring on some more slut-shaming?

There’s a new show coming soon to The CW called “Jane the Virgin”, and it’s about – you guessed it – a girl pressured into not having sexual relations (and possibly also not doing anything sexual, like masturbating, but I can’t be certain on that) and gets pregnant by accidental insemination. Anyways, I am pretty sure that the whole premise of this show is going to work out like this: young girl in Miami that has sexual encounters but gets shamed and feels at guilt so she backs out; has frequent inappropriate thoughts about sex and her own sexual sense of self; has shameful and wrongful discussions with her mother about sex and “becoming evil by losing her virginity”; and has plenty of content that is perfectly concocted up to possibly make more young girls feel bad about their sexual feelings, leading to possible repression of masturbation and/or sexual activities, self-denial, and even self-confidence by a long-shot. Will this show do us more harm than good? I think so, but I really can’t know because I don’t possess the script nor know the intricacies/elements that will unfold and reveal in the show. My opinion? Watch it and see what it’s about, but make the word known if this show does turn out to be another way of making females feel bad, unknowledgeable, and lacking of a sexual sense of self and personal sexual needs.

The world of unpredictable choices: Is it a good way to live?

Many people have different views of the world: some purely cynical; some look only at positives; some only negatives; and some a mix of both. Working from 9:00 to 5:00 is a very predictable world, but with prediction comes expectations being met and limitations being met as well. A 9:00 to 5:00 job will always pay you a fixed-rate if you work from 9:00 to 5:00; that’s just how it works in such an employment system. There are people who prefer to work 9:00 to 5:00 for their whole lives because it’s very predictable, and they have confined themselves to these limitations based on plenty of factors: salary; boss’s word; schedules; confinement; social pressure; mental limitations. Some people like the idea of getting a fixed-salary all the time and never worrying much about the amount … but others like more options, varying possibilities, and more freedom. Thinking inside the box is what limits people, but the system is predictable and assured for the time being. The problem comes when that assurance goes away and so does all of your financial possibilities. The world, meaning human civilization, has never been perfectly good and moral, and has never been perfectly bad and amoral, based on unlimited potential standards varying individuals can set forth, as well as opinions of everyone. Human society is never 100% good, and general day-to-day observances of the majority of humans is not predictable; people do not generally, all around, try and predict everything, but they confine themselves to limitations for security. This limitation can be slowly broken out of with the new world ideal: business. Not business as in coffee shop, or corporation, or specialized servicing; business as in freedom.
