Miley Cyrus' Theology of the Body

19 year old Miley Cyrus, formerly Hannah Montana, was on a talk show yesterday letting everyone know about her own version of the Theology of the Body.  Among the dimes that Ms. Cyrus dropped are the following:

1) "Your worth isn’t based on [sex],  Your worth is based on how you feel about yourself.”

2) "Sex is magic and it is when you connect with somebody."

3) Sex is magical and cool

I will agree with one thing she said - parents need to talk to their kids about it.

Parents, if you don't talk to your kids about sex (and more than once), if you don't teach them and show them how to be a responsible consumer of media, if you aren't in a proactive mode and are simply reacting to these issues, then know that your children ARE learning about it from people like Ms. Cyrus.  


  1. I don't understand what the problem is with this. She also said that without sex, you wouldn't be here. I agree with her. Isn't sex something to not be ashamed of and your worth ISN'T based on sex. Is sex not cool? It was created by God it's spectacular. Yes of course it's meant to be done within marriage. She never said it wasn't. Explain please.

  2. She's saying she has had sex and that whenever you have sex, marriage or not, these things apply - it's cool, it's magical, it's how people interact.

    Also, "your worth is based on how you feel about yourself?" What kind of mumbo jumbo is that?

  3. "your worth is based on how you feel about yourself" is not mumbo jumbo. It is just plain stupid. By this standard, people with low self esteem are not worth much. People who commit suicide are correct, they are not worth much. Unfortunately, Miley Cyrus is a perfect reflection of today's society where the most vulnerable members of our society are seen as worthless. One cannot assign a value, price or worth to a human life. Each and every life is priceless regarless of what other say or what that person "feels" about himself.

    I wonder if prostitutes think that sex is magical and cool? Wow she's 19, the equivalent of a sophmore in college and this his how she describes sex. Growing up, I never heard any adult using the words "magical and cool" to describe sex.

  4. I think someone needs to tell her that sex belongs between a married man and woman ONLY! It is certainly not "cool" it is SACRED! The other problem I see here is that a t.v. Character turned pop country artist has enough pull in our childrens (and some of the mothers and fathers as well) to influence their decisions and their ideas of self worth.
