More Madness from the Mainstream Media: Open-air Sex, Child-free life, etc

It’s really incredible how extensive the influence of the media is on people of our generation.  Concepts that must have sounded insane a generation ago are now promoted and justified as signs of advancement.  In the latest craze by the BBC, with the argument that sex should be redeemed from the hand of porn czars, supposedly normal people are to go in and have sexual intercourse “in the privacy” of a “sound-proof” cubicle on stage, and they will come out to discuss on TV, their experience!  Now that homosexuality is already mainstream in western society, it is not surprising that one of the three couples billed to feature in the premiere show on September 30 would be homosexuals (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-24218528) .   
              But even more telling of how much the media believes they have got society firmly wrapped up in their hand is the recent article by the Time magazine, promoting what it called, the Child-free life!  Subtitled, “When having it all means not having children,”  the article, glamorizes the life of women who deliberately choose to spend their entire childbearing years “maternity-free.”  As the article would convince its readers, not only can a young lady spend her life pursuing career and passions, be exempted from the inconveniences  and restrictions of pregnancy and labour, she could also save the approximately $234,900 required to raise a child born in 2011 to adulthood.  Surely there must be better things to do with all that kind of money than waste on a child!
            Incredibly, as statistics from the US show, people are actually buying into this kind of trash!  From the campaigns treating marriage as an old-fashioned concept, and encouraging young women who insist on marriage to at least postpone it till they have settled the career issue (by which time they are less fertile), we have now moved through the campaign for small-size (preferably one-child) family, to absolute no-child family!  What a glaring example of the “let’s –eat- and- drink-for-tomorrow-we- die” kind of lifestyle.  Personal fulfillments aside, what about the several NEEDS for human procreation in Society?
