I am a 35 year old married woman with 2 children. I am taking an online course with the University of Buffalo. This is the first time I am taking a class since leaving college 14 yrs ago. This is definitely the first time I am taking an online course and my first time ever blogging.
I have to admit when I first heard the title for the class "Cyberporn and Society" I considered dropping the course. But getting my degree was more important than my personal feelings of degradation while viewing pornography. So I figured I would deal with it and move on. I am not a fan of the industry as you can easily tell by my blogs. But I have to admit there is so much material out there regarding pornography that I still have no idea about. It is a fascinating topic and I am very happy I stuck with the class. Dr. Halavais presents the material and discusses the lectures with great professionalism, which makes the course content less offending and more intriguing.
I have a Catholic school education and my parents never discussed sex with me, except for the fact that I was expected to abstain until marriage. I am not a prude nor do I force my values and beliefs on others, nor am I saying I adhered to my parents' expectations either.
I hope you enjoy my postings. I hope they give all readers something to think about. As a parent, I hope to bring forth a perspective most young adults have yet to consider. I look forward to viewing their posts as well and perhaps learn to see things in a different light too.
I finished my class and got an A
I am very pleased. I learned a lot from this course, not only about the topic itself but about blogging as well.
I decided to continue to blog and I am enjoying it. I am still searching for the theme of this site. I decided to steer away from pornography unless I come across something that will have a positive impact on protecting the children.
So as you read through this blog you will notice I touch upon different topics of interest to me. Much of it will be ranting and raving about family life! Enjoy
