Quote of the Day: The Stupid! It burns!

I can't believe someone actually said this:
“In the film 'On The Road,' Kristen Stewart engages in a threesome and masturbates two male characters," Dan Gainor of the Culture and Media Institute complains to Radar Online. “How will parents who took their daughters to see the 'Twilight' movies explain this? It is irresponsible of Stewart and manipulative of Hollywood bosses.”
First off, I don't particularly think Twilight is the most appropriate movie/book series for your young and impressionable children.  That's not really the issue here though.  This woman is an adult.  She's going to do adult roles.  If you don't want your child seeing adults doing adult things don't take them to adult movies or let them read adult books.

Also, teens have sex.  Lots of sex.  Sometimes sex with multiple partners.  Chances are pretty good your sweet little daughter has, if she's a teen, had her mouth on someone's genitals.  That's reality.  Fucking deal with it.  Teach her how to be safe, for god's sake put her on birth control, and hope she's not too stupid.    

Kristen Stewart is not a role model.  She is an actor.  You, Parent, are supposed to be the role model.  Act like it.

Any parent who takes their kids to see the Twilight movies is guilty of child abuse, in my opinion.

What drives me nuts is that people want a perfect world to raise their kids in, know the world is imperfect (at least not to their individual standard), and then bitch because they expect Hollywood to fit itself to their one true way of ethical behavior.

Laurell K. Hamilton has a character whose philosophy of who she screws is "Never sleep with someone mean or stupid. Ugly is a judgment call. All three may breed true."

I'm planning on teaching both my son and daughter that. Sex is designed for procreation--recreation comes in with human ingenuity.
