A vote against the calendar

To the editor: I could not believe my eyes when I saw the Round-Up fund raiser in the paper. The more I read, the more upset I became. I will not support this fund raiser or the businesses that plan on selling it. The thing that kept coming to my mind was, is this the kind of role model we want the girls of our community to have? Do parents of 12-14 year old daughters want them to emulate women that “expose themselves?” Crook County has the highest teen pregnancy rate in Oregon. Our youth need positive role models, not something like this. The women who are promoting this calendar are shaming and degrading the rest of the women of this community. True womanhood is shown by being attractive, yes, but also having the character that accentuates it. Round-Up is a family centered event. Allowing this calendar to promote it will definitely hurt its reputation. Hannah Garner Prineville
