Miley Cyrus does her part for the pornification of America

[above: Is she just being Miley? Well, at least this time her questionable judgement didn't involve a racial slur.]

What parent who allows their child to watch the Teen Choice Awards on Fox TV wouldn't want their kid to see a sixteen-year-old pop idol clad in short shorts straddling a pole during a risqué performance

Again, to quote Marge Simpson:
You know, Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel 
so gradually, I didn't even notice. Yeesh!


  1. how do these parents define risque? She's wearing a decently-elevated heels (i know my heels are higher than that), she was not shaking the way beyonce does, so what's that? i cannot find anything wrong with the dance routine...

    although, she fell flat a couple times while singing, but hey.. she's just 16.

  2. I don't know... Kids are more likely to look at Miley Cyrus and say they want to wear what she's wearing than to look at Beyoncé and do the same.

  3. Good point.

    Every generation has its tweetums to risque... i guess this time it's Miley's turn.

  4. What will the kids do once they see the "octoidiotmom" on FOX's 2 hour special on August 20th with never before seen footage? I know I will be boycotting this garbage.

    At least Billy Ray's offspring has jettisoned her geezer boyfriend. However, today my mind was blown when I found out that a 16 year-old Natalie Wood, of "Rebel Without a Cause" fame, had an affair with the film's 43 year-old director, Nicholas Ray, during filming. Not quite as bad as Roman Polanski's love of young flesh though.

  5. Wow, John from Taejŏn, I did not know that about Natalie Wood. A sixteen-year-old and a forty-three-year-old. Hmm...

    Apparently this post has attracted some media attention, a bit:

    We knew Miley Cyrus’ brief pole dance at the Teen Choice Awards was going to spark a debate and, lo and behold, it has. Parent advocacy groups are up in arms, and blogs are crowing: “Miley Cyrus Does Her Part For the Pornification Of America.” In Newsday, child psychologist Wendi Fischer opined, “She’s sending the message that this is ‘OK’ to do, and I don’t think it is OK to do.”

    That's me who's doing the "crowing." If you don't believe me, go Google it. I'll wait. I've got a Starbucks and an Internet connection; I'm not going anywhere.

    Of course, they didn't link to here, and then they went on to mock me, but I'm used to that by now. :)
