What do you want to be when you grow up?

3 Nov

By CANDACE ROBERTS

 

This is a question I am almost afraid to ask. When I was younger the response to this question was mostly: a doctor, lawyer, teacher, police officer, fireman, and the list goes on. My answer always changed, but I wanted to be everything from an engineer to a basketball player, a senator, a judge, and wanted to join the military as young as 8 years old. I ended up becoming a writer and hope to one day become a History Professor. The military dream may or may not be in my future.

These days it seems like more and more people want to be singers, actresses, dancers, athletes, and models. These people are glorified in the media and with the right publicity can earn millions. Who wouldn’t want to earn millions? With so many wanting to model and act, it makes you wonder who will run the hospitals in the future. Sure there is nothing wrong with wanting to sing or play football or any other careers listed above, if you have the talent, but they’re all hard fields to get into. If it’s your dream to do any of those jobs, don’t give up on it.

Some people are willing to do anything to get fame though. This is not always positive. When you have females sleeping with men to get ahead, stripping or doing porn to pay for college, men aspiring to be drug dealers, or basically selling their souls to the devil; then we have a problem. Let’s not be blind, this stuff does go on folks. To me its just taking the easy way out because there are a lot of people who don’t want to work hard for anything these days. If your biggest goal in life is to pose naked for Playboy or do porn for fame, then you need to set new goals and higher standards. Let’s take Montana Fishburne, for instance, the daughter of Laurence Fishburne who did a porn flick simply hoping to gain fame like Kim Kardashian. These cannot be children or even young adults role models. Have some class and dignity please. You do not have to be naked or even half naked to get attention!

If you want to act, then act, and be the best at it. If you choose to be a doctor, study hard and it will pay off. Just don’t sell yourself short or damage your integrity to achieve your dreams!

    I understand your position; but more and more women will do porn. As the years go on doing porn will have less and less of a stigma for a woman. They get their 15 minutes of fame (noteriety) and many times their porn experience is the best sex they will have in their lives. Puls, they don’t have to be in a relationship. And you are a woman. If you are heterosexual you know what asses men can be. For many women, if they are not outted, doing porn, especially a gain bang when an orgasmic woman has several orgasms wtih let’s say one hour (what are the most orgasms you have had in an hour with a man, is the greates sexual experience of their lives. So, everything you say is true;

      The computer did not allow me to proofread my first comment. I see a lot of mistakes; but I think you get my main message. I think more and more women will do porn (I know they will) until it’s like a rite of passage; and then the ones who do not want to be porn actresses will simply get on with their lives. I admire these women. Talk about living on the edge. It’s like being a rock star.
