I have had enough of naughty nymphets and predatory paparazzi, haven’t you? The entertainment industry…and this includes movies, television, and their feeder system of magazines, breathless TV shows and websites…has become trapped in the erotic fantasy lives of hormonally driven thirteen year old boys. Enough already.
The masturbatory coverage of Paris, Britney and Lindsey Lohan, including up-skirt and absentee panties photos, plus revelations of mammoth substance abuse and the obligatory Rehab, has, I pray, run its course. Real lives are at stake, not to mention the soul of our nation. Or do you think driving the wrong way on a freeway at One Thirty in the morning is a good thing for that other role model, Nicole Richie, age 25, to be doing?
Just when you think it can’t get worse, along comes the youngster from New Zealand starring as the Virgin Mary in the new movie, “The Nativity,” Keisha Castle-Hughes (the youngest actress ever nominated for an Oscar in “Whale Rider”) who announces, at age Sixteen, her own pregnancy. Her boyfriend, to whom she is not married, but who is, we’re told, a carpenter. Keisha’s mother just had another child two months ago. As my Granny used to say, “Je-Je-Je-Jesus!”
Where does this end? Is it the aim of the global conglomerates that control virtually all of the imagery and content to which our kids and we are subjected, the end of any distinction between adults and children?
It’s time for an Intervention.
But how, and with whom?
