A few weeks ago, I was driving to a doctor's appointment and turned on the radio (the first time I had done so in a loooooong time) and I heard an ad for a "Concerned Parents" group that made me turn off the radio in disgust.
Basically, it was your typical "Times are becoming more and more troubling and instead of blaming bad parenting, we want to blame the entertainment industry" advert, but the most telling point was this. This group (whose name I can't remember even though I really wish I could) had, as their main selling point to all these concerned parents, that THEY (the company) would send out a weekly email to tell all the concerned parents what was offensive on TV/movies/radio/music that week with a prewritten email and the addresses of pertinent agencies to send them to.
Their approach was essentially, "Since we know you are too busy to take an interest in what you child does, we will tell you what to protest to give you the illusion you're watching after their needs."
And you know what I say to that? **** them. If you're a good parent who actually raises your child yourself, I have no problem with you, but if you park Junior in front of the television without knowing or caring what he's watching so you can sit around and gossip with the neighborhood sewing circle about "Desperate Housewives", your opinion means nothing to me and should mean nothing to everyone else.
The simple fact that seven year olds with horrible parents are having such a huge influence on what I, as an adult, can and cannot do, watch, or listen to is a ridiculous concept. Do some ******* parenting and stop worrying about whether or not Paris Hilton's cellphone has been hacked into.
