Reports this week that police have strip-searched girls under the age of 18 during the past three years, including girls as young as 12, are deeply troubling. The practice often involves the girls stripping naked in front of a stranger and squatting down while being examined. This is humiliating and degrading for anyone — but can be especially traumatic for children, who are still adjusting to the physical and emotional changes of adolescence and are likely to find the power imbalance of the situation frightening. This young woman, 22, was stripped searched at a Sydney music festival, but teenage girls - and girls as young as 12 - have also been subjected to the searches. I could not stop crying.

Miley is just 15 years old. The image in Vanity Fair magazine shows a seemingly naked girl, wide-eyed, full-lipped and with a mass of tousled damp hair. Her back is bare and her pose provocative and vulnerable as she stares over her shoulder into the camera, while wrapped in little more than a rumpled sheet. It is possibly artistic but irrefutably suggestive of the bedroom. The problem? The girl in question is just She is also a Disney actress and a pretty big one at that. Is she growing up too fast? As the main actress in the popular Disney TV show Hannah Montana, she plays an ordinary brunette leading a secret double-life as a blonde pop star. Then came the photo.
When my husband and I were sealed, I finally understood why my Dad had been stressing this to me my entire life. And yet I have such profound respect for his role in our community. Until then I didn't have much of a problem with his lifestyle because I still had my freedom and could focus as much as I wanted on a career. Then she took a vacation to Utah and in her letter to me she stated that she had seen the Temple, and I never heard from her again. It sucks to admit, but I broke up with him after 6 months because I didn't think there was any point if we couldn't be together forever.
In response to your comment about being with that creative director think all relationships have problems. He should tell her that he will never convert, and that if she will not be happy unless he does, the relationship should end. I mean, there was no way it could be worse than intern year. And most of those end up with both people losing their faith or a divorce. Mormon decried it was all a lie, an anti mormon lie. The thing is I didn't want to marry someone who I'd never see or spend time with. If you have a literal belief that you need to have a temple marriage to go to the celestial kingdom, you will always keep a secret desire to convert your spouse. I'd rather marry a doctor and let him have a mistress on the side if that means not having to worry about money. Like you I grew up with and taught the standard LDS beliefs about temple marriage, celestial kingdom, etc. I have dated all walks of TBM women TBM women are closet freaks.
