Reality T.V. downfall
So this weekend i began watching Paris Hilton's My New BFF and i realized that this was the new low for American society. The mere concept of the show is completely ridiculous, have 16 random girls abandon their lives for three months so that a girl ten times richer( and therefore better) than them can humiliate each one with absurd challenges, title one of them as her new best friend, and abandon them when she realizes that she has a million friends that didn't have to compete for her attention. Yet sadly I became addicted within the first ten minutes of watching raper Dirt Nasty sexually harass each girl so Paris could determine who was the most desperate for male attention.
Ten years ago, shows like this didn't exist, but somewhere down the line Americans became obsessed with the degradation of their fellow man. My question is where do you draw the line between funny and immoral? I think it's pretty safe to say that some of the same people that run around calling others "fags" and "dikes" are in fact running home at seven o'clock to watch Tila Tequila makeout with boys and girls to see which sex she would prefer to date for the next two weeks. The same people saying that marriage is sacred are nearly peeing their pants to watch fourteen large chested women compete to marry a man they have spent around 17 hours with total. Now is this hypocrisy or just media brain washing.
Now-a-days it seems like if the t.v. tells you something is okay, then it is. I'm not going to deny my love for many of these terrible shows because Flavor of Love and The Hills are some of my favorite pass times. However, I can't help but feel utterly appalled by what our society has come to. Rather than watching the news, American youth would rather watch rich people tell us how cool it is to be rich and washed up celebrities dance to win money. I think we all need to reevaluate our priorities, because when the question of "Who is Paris Hilton going to choose to go shopping with today?" replaces "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country?" then we are in trouble.
