Dating apps prove factor in HIV rise among adolescents - BBC News
"It's not just one to one, it's one to many, so the risks of acquiring HIV go up." Although there is no evidence directly linking apps to HIV infection rates, their increasing prevalence means there is a "need to sound alarm bells", she adds. Adolescence is traditionally a time when teenagers engage in risky behaviour and look to experiment and gain more independence.

Hook-up Apps Are Destroying Gay Youth Culture | TIME
Many dating apps help perpetuate what people scorn about LGBT: promiscuity, impersonal behavior, and compromised interpersonal connection. [...] But instead of advancing the gay agenda of inclusion, I found the apps to perpetuate what people scorn about LGBT: promiscuity, impersonal behavior, and sexually motivated conversations. This is not the fault of the LGBT community, but these depersonalized conversations are what lead to depersonalized relationships. When an introduction to gay culture is through a sex-based app, it perpetuates the sex-based stereotype. Because LGBT still face shame and disownment, our coming out is plagued with fear that we will lose those we love, which leads to a shame-based idea of relationships. Each dating app focuses on a different demographic[/target audience.] [...] Most importantly, K-12 children should be taught about sexual orientation in an open, direct, and engaging way encouraging normalcy and assimilation.

BBC News - Diane Abbott: British culture 'increasingly pornified'
'Pressure to conform' +++ It's hyper-sexualized British culture in which women are objectified, objectify one another, and are encouraged to objectify themselves.” Diane Abbott MP (Shadow public health minister) +++ "Parents and teachers have a duty to ensure that children develop a healthy view of sexuality, distinct from this porn version that is swamping and infiltrating British life. Because it's a very specific form of sexuality that's being imposed, on children and adults: a porn version. This is what kids are dealing with on a daily basis. "Young people are accessing far harder pornographic images than 10 or 15 years ago." +++ Sex education should be "revolutionised" to better prepare young people for "healthy, respectful, emotionally fulfilling relationships" and deal with issues of self-esteem. +++ "commercialisation of childhood"
