What we’re reaping


Suddenly everybody is concerned about underage children having sex and becoming pregnant. Well, what do we as a people expect, especially during this Carnival season? We glorify top female soca stars and others wining and grinding on other men. We have the male artistes gyrating and performing “dancing acts” on women of all shapes and sizes on stage as if they are in their bedroom. These artistes are the role models!

So people, check the lyrical content of the songs, dress code and actions of these artistes and partygoers. Add to this mix alcohol consumed by men and the hormone issues, curiosity and naivety of young girls who look up to these artistes.

Are we really surprised by the outcome now?
