I’m sitting here watching Bad Girls Club…A show that celebrates horrible horrible behavior. Oh sure the show features scantily clad young attractive women and yeah sometimes they fight and okay maybe, just maybe some of their clothing finds it’s way off of their young, supple, nubile bodies as they writhe and struggle until one of the young cat fighters relents and helplessly submits to the will of the other. Wooo, give me a second as I gather my morals… Almost there… Okay, I’m back. Meet me at the next paragraph for some judgmental talk.
The show is deplorable! Seriously, what has happened to the world? We used to at least wait for our reality show stars to work up to a reason to fight. I thought we enjoyed watching them build up animosity towards each other. The threat of a fight used to be enough. A backstabber on a island, lifetime friends needing to “speak to” each other, two bachlorettes fighting over some dummy… There was a narrative, we had time to take sides. Whether you are pro-Bethenny or not or anti-Nene or not, you the had time to make an educated Housewives choice. On top of it all, our reality shows starred adults behaving like children, that’s fun. It’s always nice to have losers to compare your own life to.
Bad Girls Club on the other hand is a bunch of extremely young girls. If you’ve never seen the show, it gathers several self pro-claimed “Bad Girls” adds the obligatory mansion, tosses in lots liquor and limo rides to the club, shakes and serves. The result is akin to if Nickelodeon did a women’s prison show. What should be soft-core porn fun is really just a sad statement on parenting these days. When adults make dumb choices with their life, it’s funny, when young people make dumb choices all I can think is how often while they were growing up they watched their parents do dumb things. I propose doing a show called Bad Parents Club and at the end of every season the parents have their children taken away so that the kids will have the chance to grow up happy, sane and never appear on Bad Girls Club.
When did I become the old man who complains? I don’t know. I have noticed that if I’m not happy with my meal I’ll send it back. Also, the other day I was at the movies and it was too loud and I got them to turn it down…And give me and my guest, passes to come back another day. Is that so wrong? No, growing older and acquiring sense and taste is a part of life. Things you liked when you were younger tend to fade away as you mature. Look, there’s nothing wrong with some good old fashioned cat fighting, I just like my cat fighters to be mature, sensible and classy.
