Where the hell do I start?
Now, listen, I'm all for raising a child with a healthy level of self-esteem. God knows there are enough haters out there to crush anyone's spirit. But there is a difference between that and an oblivious ego the size of Montana.
The caption on this picture says "Honey Boo Boo called positive example" and the article is referring to a nomination from GLAAD. Ok, in reading further, I see that GLAAD is citing this positive example because on the show, Honey Boo Boo's uncle revealed he is HIV positive and the folks from GLAAD are happy that LGBT issues are not hidden from Honey Boo Boo's viewers, thereby reflecting "a new American landscape" of acceptance. I am all cool with that.
What I am not cool with is the fact that TLC (The Learning Channel) has sold out to the bourgeois. Now instead of learning about this amazing planet we live on and the things that go with it, science, nature, history, we are subjected to the exhibitionistic carryings-on of
people creatures that we cannot explain. It's like watching a train wreck.....you cannot look away.
I am also extremely concerned that TLC has to put subtitles on the screen so people can understand what these yahoos are saying. It give the rest of us with a quaint and charming Southern accent a bad name.
A close tie for first this week goes to the monster who created this.
