SnapChat’s “Cosmo After Dark” Is Porn

Cosmo After Dark is a new channel on SnapChat’s “discover” section that goes live every Friday at 6pm. Cosmo describes their new SnapChat feature as “an X-rated weekly edition that is exclusively dedicated to all things hot and horny.” If you look below this article, you'll see some screen shots straight from SnapChat that your kids can easily access on Cosmo After Dark. Be mindful that there's never been any parental controls on SnapChat but if you are reading this with your child, VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED!

Snapchat is a publicly traded company with a strict focus on making money. Social media is a competitive industry and they are doing everything to stay on top. With pornography being a billion dollar industry, what a win-win for the two to join forces," Val Senegal, Hearts of Hope's Education Director.

Now is the time to become the vigilant parent. We have been saying this for two years now, monitor your children's electronics and social media accounts. Use two-party authentication to control their logins and activity. Have access to their accounts on your own devices as well as the passwords. Set strict consequences when they violate any of the ground rules you've laid regarding social media. Have a conversation with them OFTEN about the dangerous effects of pornography. What you do today, matters later when your child becomes an adult.

Legislative Bills Alert

Public awareness of what our legislators are doing and how they are voting is extremely important. After all, you vote them in and you have the power to vote them out if you don't think they are doing a good job. If social justice issues regarding sexual & domestic violence are important to you, we want to help get your voice elevated in the community and amplified in the legislator. Learn your legislators by visiting the Louisiana state legislature website. From this website, you can also track bills and track sessions and committees. Start a dialogue with your legislators by sending an email or visiting their social media pages. 

If you are going to a doctor’s appointment, you can actually stream audio of a hearing session to get first hand information. The fact of the matter is TECHNOLOGY FUELS CONSTITUENT COMMUNICATION. Almost every legislator I know relies heavily on their computers to communicate with their constituent.
