On numerous occasions and by many different people I have been told that I may have been born in the wrong era. With high morals, an aversion to Lady Gaga and a relatively 'old fashioned' outlook on the world it's not difficult to believe. However, there are some things in popular culture that really make my blood boil....
Number one: The strange and inexplicable race for young girls to grow up. Whether it's ten year olds dancing like Rihanna at a disco or 14 year olds going out clubbing every weekend. The girls in our society seem to think that they must become tiny adults, and this is wrong. When I was little I liked nothing better than dressing up, but it has gone a step too far. When has it ever been right for ten year olds to grind to the Hokie Cokie!?
Number two: Music videos (This is only aimed at a small sector of the music video corner. Don't hate me, I like most of the others) Again here showing my "age" but seriously the last thing I want to see is singer writhing around wearing what can only be described as glorified underwear. I am all for women being independent and powerful etc. Surely this is just objectifying women? and all it really does is make me feel uncomfortable and reluctant to buy the music.
Number three: The fact that people just can't seem to be nice to each other. Whether it's friends bitching or arguing with or about one another or countries fighting. The human population seems to be completely unable to get along. To be honest I don't see why people play nicely, conflict is tiring and pointless and really at the end of the day is it worth it?
Okay, I feel I have forced my opinions on you enough. Rant over.
Thank you and Goodnight.
