Please, do not “Gimme More” unless you’re referring to clothing.

Britney Spears… okay I’ll be the kinder of the critics and I’ll focus less on how dysfunctional her life is. Rather than bashing her way life, I’ll bash something else: the tyrants that exploit women in the music industry. If there was ever any respectable woman in the music industry that was an icon for decades, she was either promiscuous, naturally beautiful, or scantily clad with leather, fishnets, and/or jewelry to barely cover her silicon-enhanced breasts. (We still want America to see them, right?) And guess what? For a while it looked like Brit was all of the above. (Note: That “while” was not defined. Yes, include the present in that “while”)

Victorian/Cowboy/Battlestar Galactica? As if it wasn’t bad enough to have your crotch all over the internet.

What is my point? While children are getting more obese, and more prone to eating disorders of all kinds, a new method of achieving popularity is created: show more body parts, see more $$$. MySpace condones it even more, too. In fact, I dare you to go on MySpace and try to go through 30 profiles of “teenagers” without seeing a scantily clad picture, or worse, preteen’s scantily clad picture. People aren’t judged by personality anymore. They’re judged by who has better abs, who has nicer boobs, and who has the guts to show their privates. They’re not even eighteen and they have the guts to expose every inch of skin for a little bit of attention.

Which then pulls attention away from those that are possibly worth following. Say, for example, good writing. I guarantee that a majority of the micro-fabric-wearing, prepubescent girls have little to no writing skill because they are too busy honing down their photography skills. Pornography is a better word for it. Kiddie porn.

One of the goals of this little blog is to get your eyes off of those thirteen-year-olds’ lack of cleavage. Pull your brain out of the gutter and try to read someone’s opinions on life. It might change or challenge yours, and if so, good. As long as those that put effort into their words are the ones that get the props, not those that post a nude picture and expect the world to flock to their hand. This is going upstream, but you’ll be surprised how many noses you can punch when you’re walking the opposite direction.

Maybe we’ll get lucky and all female star-hopefuls will become strippers, inspired by this video of such respect for femininity. (Please note the tone of severe sarcasm.)
