This is the destruction of our kids. Welcome to the demon party.
Correct me if i have this wrong-- but, you think i am being divisive for the post, and you think i meant you worked in holly wood, and said, said
I will briefly point out that your statement
" I assume that you think that I work in the entertainment industry, I don't. Never have.(Nice Ad-hom attack by the way) But what if I did? Does it make my opinion less valid in your view? (remember YOU asked for what people think)"
Presupposes an anger that is not here. i have no beef with working in any industry (except a couple i suppose_-, i myself would live to work in media,
as i pointed out below i assumed your worked in the child abuse care field and meant it as a compliment, and that that was part of why you made the comment.
((So i think this is a great example of how people misinterpret things and the forums can get full of folks making digs or ready for insults.))
so- back shortly.
OK -- here are some thoughts.
Along with every other Disney and other child stars, there are handlers.
and there are plenty of tell -all books from those in the business that testify to the fact that everything is handled. This child was groomed as a "model" for kids to learn from. From day one there were scripts that made her a teacher and model to other kids. Her early show was a totally relatable script for those watching about how to live life. Little life lessons about friendship and values in hanna montana. This fame is not built cheaply or lightly. It is not given away. A model is very important.
Getting everyone to watch the spectacle of mtv awards is why the talking heads waxed riotous--
moral and cultural insanity!
getting everyone to watch it
even to condemn it
is the point.
There are plenty of youtube and other video compilations about the music/entertainment industry and its specific "treatment" of youth.
I won't belabor that point more than that.
My point is that we have grown accepting in our culture
we see the sexualization of our girls and it is taken for granted now.
My point was that we would react to a fresh young boy model writhing about in a far different manner.
I'm sure it is coming.
The same in microcosm are genitalia. The female genitalia are allowed, it is there and in your face. Still working up to the males'.
I have a few more comments in a minute-- about
e.g., child molestation and the wrecking balls who wreck their families by reporting and the damaged goods syndrome.
but i would like to say my worldview
is not as you characterize, anonymous.\back later.
