It really bothers me that the American public seems to find it amusing when women (especially young women) in entertainment are crude and brash in the name of being comical. I believe in free speech, I’m not trying to apply a gender double standard, and I don’t think women should just look pretty and say nice things all the time. On the contrary, I like when women are honest and real. Still, I am disappointed that some female public figures base much of their careers on being unapologetically vulgar.
Tag Archives: Ellen Degeneres
I was a bit disappointed that for her Halloween special, she featured this young boy wearing a wrecking ball costume, an obvious nod to the infamous Miley Cyrus music video (read my critique of it here!). The video is inappropriate (duh), and having this boy reference it is also somewhat inappropriate.
Don’t make things that are NOT cute/ funny try to seem cute/ funny,
especially when children are involved!
*Friends, I have LOTS of thoughts on Ellen. The vast majority of them are positive!
1) Why 1984 made me doubt the name Katherine
(doubt not, but be believing!)
2) How veeeery much of an influence Ms. DeGeneres and Mr. Paisley are on me.
3) The reconciliation of the paradox of being an enemy and being a daughter.
4) What water taught me about selecting television program(s).
5) OH. BE. WISE. (what can I say more?!)
what else ya got for us?
that it was always just a cop-out for faith/religious committment.
I do not think that anymore.
Still LDS 🙂
