I should add that an in-law of mine worked as a social worker in a New Mexican prison. The prison authorities blocked the A & E channel from their TV feed. They found it riled up the prisoners too much and planted too many ideas in their heads.

Gove are the days on A & E that you can watch Charles Dickens, Emily Bronte, or a rendition of Washington’s Crossing of the Delaware. It’s just crap now.

“13 yr old, going on 30!”

No - she’s perfectly content with t-shirts and sweatshirts. Her twin sister on the other hand.....!

They are both great kids, but the one did get told that if she has too much makeup on in the morning it will be coming off and she’ll be late to school.

“TLC is the absolute sewer of cable channels.

TLC (The Learning Channel) used to be a great channel. They had lots of quality educational programming. Nature and science documentaries, etc.

There was a sharp increase in reality shows a few years ago when the writers went on strike.

Stations filled the gap with non professionals; shows were cheap to make; folks watched. Ergo the scene today.

sad really.

When I see mothers and these show announcers exploiting babies as sexual objects for adult rapists, I want punch somebody.

I don’t feel sad. I don’t feel shocked. I feel like I want to beat someone up...real bad.

I’ve seen lots of previews for this disgusting program, and I wonder how it can continue to be aired.

It is absolutely an invitation to child rape.

How can the Mediots have been so outraged about Jon Benet Ramsey’s performances, but not this crap?

They have boys in the pageants. We’ve watched the show. It’s very strange.

Please tell me they were in little tuxedos.

The “sexualization” of children as you put it, is subjective. I would suggest that making social outcasts of adults that send their children to these stupid shows is a better alternative then the endless new laws people like you are always crying out for. We currently incarcerate more people than any other country on the planet. I think we have enough laws on the books. Time to try something different like change our culture.

I helped judge a beauty contest once because a friend of mine asked me to help her out. NEVER, EVER AGAIN! Talk about dishonest, manipulative crap..I’Il vote for your pick if you will vote for mine...HELL NO, I didn’t play that game and never will. They don’t like or want judges who don’t play the game.

I can’t believe how expensive it is to participate in these pageants either. Those little girl’s parents spend thousands for those dresses, not just hundreds but thousands. And the pure torture they put those kids through is nothing but child abuse.

A child should actually enjoy being a child, not some dumbass parent’s trophy. Most of the mothers couldn’t win a ribbon at a 4H fair competing against the cows.

Certainly shuts us up when the Muslims accused us of having a degenerate society.

1. What kind of parents do this to their children?
2. What kind of people watch this on TV?
3. What kind of TV channel broadcasts this stuff?

Incredulity all around!

Supposedly “9/11: Heros of the 88th Floor” is really good. A two hour documentary.

Yes, indeed. And the contestants also have to donate $1000s in “sponsorships” in order to participate.

You have not the slightest inkling what my intelligence level is.

You, however, make yours abundantly clear. And I must say I'm not all that impressed.

This could go on indefinitely, and there is no discourse here, only trading barbs. Take the last word if you so desire. I'm finished, this conversation holds no use for me.
