I'm so glad I don't have cable. I never watched it and only got annoyed at what was on tv. I watch everything online via Netflix or Amazon. It's
cheaper and i find lots of great documentaries to watch.
I have friends who post all the time about the shows mentioned on their FB and I just want to scream. Another one I forgot to mention is Toddles And
Tiara's, that show is horrible! Parents pushing their lost dreams on their child. It's a form of abuse if you ask me!
People wonder why society is the way it is. Look at what is considered "cool" or "in." Dressing like a slut is ok and being a teen and pregnant is
ok (Teen Mom MTV). I read People the other day and it was going on about one of the teen moms and it was so annoying to see and read. This girl is
trash, sorry nothing but trash. She is "famous" for being irresponsible? Since when does that kind of behavior get rewarded. Kids shouldn't be
having kids and it sure as hell shouldn't be broadcasted on TV because it gives teens the wrong impression. I read that there was a pregnancy pack at
a HS because they wanted to be on the next season of the show! I mean WTF! People wonder why bullying is so bad, look at shows like Bad Girls Club
where fighting is allowed and even encouraged. Jersey Shore is another one, it shows nothing but irresponsible partying and trashy behavior. I saw a
news show a while back that had TEEN girls in a mall waiting for Snookie. They were dressed like her!!! I couldn't believe these girls and what they
were saying, let alone that their parents allowed it! I wasn't allowed to watch 90210 as a teen cause my mom felt it inappropriate.These girls were
dressed just as sleazy as Snookie and saying how she is their role model and they love how she parties and they want to be like her. SAD!!! There are
tons of shows where wild and inappropriate behavior is accepted or promiscuity is considered cool!
Also look at music, it's gotten WORSE! I remember when I was younger and 2 Live Crew were the bad boys of music and were banned in the USA. Now you
have worse rappers with even worse lyrics and messages. I am amazed at what is edited in songs and what isnt' compared to when I was a teen. All rap
songs talk about are bitches, hoes, strippers, drugs, being a thug, crime and money. I remember when rap actually had a message! Music has gone down
the toilet as has tv. There is no real educated thought out there anymore and it shows in society and how people act.
Sorry for the rant within the rant
This topic just drives me nuts because I see it everywhere I go and it boggles my mind. I'm only 33 and can't
believe how much things have changed in just 10yrs. I'm scared to see what it will be like 10yrs from now, heck even 5!
