Dear Amy : A year ago my husband and I went to visit his relatives for a week. At the time I was pregnant with my first baby. Toward the end of our visit, while conversing in the kitchen, my brother-in-law showed us some pictures of us that he had uploaded onto his iPad. The moment was brief, but we both saw pictures saved on the iPad of nude young girls. They appeared to be very young pre-pubescent girls. My husband and I saw these photos very briefly and next thing we knew, the iPad was back in his brother's hands. My gut instinct told me that something wasn't right. Amy, I chose to not report it as we didn't know for sure what we saw, and I didn't want to stir up drama. I'm torn. I can barely talk to his brother.

Question, I am an avid art buff, and could spend my whole trip to Italy in the art museums. I do know that many of the pieces statues, paintings, etc portray nude men, women, and children. What is the feeling about exposing young children to these art pieces? Personally, I think my daughters are mature, but even still I do have a bit of apprehension about exposing them to male genitalia. Is this common place in the museums?

Very Young Girls, whose title reflects the fact that in the United States the average age of entry into prostitution is just thirteen. The film takes us into the work of a former sexually exploited youth-turned-activist named Rachel Lloyd, who started the New York City organization GEMS Girls Educational and Mentoring Services to help victimized young women escape their pimps and find another way of life. We meet teen aged girls at different stages of this transition. Some have been so psychologically manipulated by their pimps that they feel compelled to return.
It sure has its ups and downs. A couple of things I run into most is that people assume I am also Mormon. It means that before anything else, you have to be clear in saying that you want to date a Mormon girl. I am very understanding about it and I'm fine with retaining some independence, especially at this stage in dating. My dad was in the bishopric for most of my childhood, and I was never the person you describe here. I'm quite willing to take you at your word, but my guess is that academia had nothing to do with your ex being immature. I hope that you have left him at this point, and that you are happy. Additionally we have no family nearby for me to rely on for help or just to combat loneliness. For me, one of those bouncers is my marriage to the most wonderful woman alive.
