    Station crossing lines of public decency - 4-Sep-2008
    Family Party Candidate for Northland, Melanie Taylor, is concerned over The Edge FM competition being held nationwide at 4.30pm today.

    The station is encouraging girls to publicly kiss for about 20 seconds, with one girl/girl couple winning a trip to Melbourne to see Katy Perry, singer of the hit song "I kissed a girl and I liked it."

    The competition is being promoted on radio and through a text message campaign to young people.

    It is another event which further reflects the decline in standards of public decency. The competition is being held in prominent and very public locations throughout the country, at a time when many families and young children could be innocently exposed to these events,says Mrs Taylor.

    The Family Party recently opposed the Boobs on Bikes Parade, and believes that this competition is also crossing the lines of decent public behaviour and sends the wrong message to young people.

    Promiscuity is already a huge problem amongst our teenagers, leading to increased abortion rates, sexually transmitted diseases, alcohol and drug abuse and sexual crimes. It undermines standards of decency that parents want upheld for their children. The radio station is not publicly putting families and children first, but rather their own advertising and publicity agenda. Sadly that may be at the cost of those that are innocently and unwillingly exposed, she added.
