Is this right?

One day one of my friends asked me will you come with us to watch a movie?
I am little bit liking in watching movies, so, I asked what that movie is?
She said, it’s about a girl who is a virgin and she is 18 years. I felt little bit different, and then I asked myself, what can I do?
Should I go or not? At last, I thought I should go.
I went and sat with them.
Oh! What is this? A small girl? I was surprised in first scene.
I was unable to believe the scenes which I am seeing. My other two friends were laughing and watching. But, I was thinking far from the scenes.
Is this true? They are mad of sex.
I remembered that, we are going to take actions, raise our voice for the battement of women. But, look. This is the truth which we don’t see.
I saw the reality from my eyes. Even I can’t believe, I have to believe.
I was thinking, why girls are like this? And why they can’t protect their place in society?
I don’t know will my journal is going in the right track or not? But, I can’t reject the truth. I want to ask from you all am I wrong?
Even the world is going in a separate way and doing such stupid things, as a responsible gender of the future should we response for everything? Can’t we protect our place in the society?

Keep it up

Dear Friend,

I am really impressed the way you are thinking about all this matter from your small age. Yes! I also agree with you, but if you want to know my comand from my heart, I will say that this is the fault of the women in the world. They are the one who are making themselves like this. This things I also saw and it is really shocking.

Women like you should come forward to talk about all these matters.
I hope your effort will make women conscious.

As we all are here hope our endeavor will help us to remove this entire hazards from the world.

Farah.

RE: Sexuality and women

Well, I am not quite sure what you saw so it is a little difficult for me to comment. What I did gather is that what you saw was very disturbing to you and I am sorry for all of the confusion and upsetting feelings.
Women's sexuality and feelings are a normal part of life and indicate our natural development as potentially reproductive beings. But when womens' sexuality is expressed irresponsibly or exploited by men, it is usually an indication that the woman is not being respected.
To depict girls in sexual situations is irresponsible and exploitive of girls. It is a crime in this country and most of the world.
Some sexual and reproductive health education is necessary to help us learn about our bodies, how humans reproduce and about womens' bodily changes like menstruation and menopause. These are normal changes and there is no need to be embarrassed about them. But usually this type of information is best learned about from written literature, not films, or from some older woman you trust who is knowledgeable and educated.
