There has been a lot of attention focused lately on the young blond brats of Hollywood. It seems that everything they do is somehow “newsworthy”. As if I really care what Britney does with her hair, or any other part of her body. Newsweek even printed an article about “The Girls Gone Wild Effect”, and received some severe criticism for it. They deserved it. The death of Mollie Ivins got a small paragraph and these idiots got pages and pages of attention, including some absolutely disgusting photos.
What really bothered me about the article, which I proudly admit that I refused to read, was the inference (in the photo captions and blurbs) that Newsweek was concerned about the influence the “wild girls” have on our young girls. Give me a break! How in the world would any of our children know what these deranged, attention-addicted juvenile delinquents were doing if the news media didn’t follow their every movement? The media practically invented some of these young women. Where else but in America could someone without talent, intelligence, or virtue become a “role model”?
And why aren’t parents turning off anything and everything that relates to these women? I hardly see them unless they are on the six o’clock news. How and where does a pre-teen girl see them? Is this why a whole generation is “plugged in”? So they can see and hear trash like this? It’s time for some parents to start saying “no”.
I already see subtle changes in the way kindergarten girls dress, dance, and talk. I see dolls with tattoos and sexy clothes. I hear chants and songs with lurid lyrics. From the mouths of babes comes a premonition of the future, and it’s a sad one. If we don’t start giving more attention to the good girls of our country and making them the role models for our children, we are going to be the losers.
