It Is Cool To Be Unpopular

Apparently, the entire internet is in an uproar over what the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch said in regards to the primary demographic the brand tries to attract. He explained how they purposely do not provide female sizes larger than a size 10, because he wants the “cool” kids to wear it. Okay, I think what he said was rude, and putting down a certain demographic, because he does not find them applicable enough to don their attire, is rude and a significant amount of people were offended by his harsh remarks. Here is the deal EVERY brand is catering to a certain demographic, it is just not politically correct to flat out say; Ralph Lauren’s $88 Polo shirts are targeting a certain demographic, people who are preppy, and can afford to purchase expensive clothing. When someone walks into the room with that small logo in the right hand of their shirt, it represents class, style, and sophistication. All of those terms are often associated with wealth. Are all wealthy people classy, stylish, and sophisticated? Of course, not, some are rather classless, dumb, and look like they have not brushed their hair in a month. When a girl walks in to the door wearing Juicy Couture workout clothing, it also says something. It says I am willing to spend $200 on an outfit I am going to sweat in, because I care more about looking stylish at the gym than getting a great workout. These women typically have flat asses, because they are too busy shopping for work out attire rather than doing squats.

The message I am trying to convey in this post is everything is marketed towards a certain person, if it were not brands could not even exist. It is mean to say something like the brand is marketed towards the “cool” kids, but come on does that really piss you off that much? I am glad I was not wearing Abercrombie, and hanging out with the “cool” kids, because all the people I admire were outcasts, and thought outside of the box. The majority of the cool kids ended up married, with little ambition, and live mediocre lives. I am not mediocre, and I will never settle for mediocre. People that grew up to do great things with their lives were often high school rejects, and I am proud to have never been popular. Not being a popular kid allowed me to develop a personality, a sense of humor, and let me express my creative side.

In the end enjoy the brands to buy, because they make you happy. Who cares about what some CEO says about beauty, and size.

Let’s Point That Finger Again

That adorable, angelic, precious baby you once held in your arms, because it was crying has now transformed into a rebellious, music blasting teenager. A teenager that wants nothing to do with you. A person that is smoking pot, having sex, and prancing around in clothing you do not approve of.

What went wrong? Who the hell is that monster in your kitchen? You read every psychology book there was ever written on how to raise the “perfect” child, you surrounded your child with responsible, educated adults, and provided them with a stable home. That deviant monster could not be a result of how you raised it. You are the epitome of human perfection. You did everything right. Their outrageous behavior must be a result of something else-hmmmm I think I know what that something is. Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, these girls are complete whores, and your child is infatuated by them. They must be the reason why your child is acting out.

This may sound lame, but the reality is people often blame entertainment for their childs poor behavior. Come on get real. Kim Kardashian is not raising your child, YOU ARE! If parents did something called parent their children would not go inside of the cocoon and turn into a monster. Does the media have some effect on our society?? Of course it does. Children, especially girls are effected by what magazines and television project to them. That magic little box in your living room can decide what is pretty what is ugly, why you need the newest version of the car you are driving, why your not thin enough- the list can go on, however if parents stopped pointing the finger at that little box or at celebrities they could possibly face the fact that their childrens behavior is due to their lack of parenting! EVERY teenager will be exposed to drugs, and sex. How they handle the situation all depends upon how they were raised. Do their peers influence them? Yes, but they have a minimal amount of influence if they were raised by strong parents.

There are many single parents, and parents that have to work long hours in order to provide for their children. I empathize with you, and give you a significant amount of credit. It must be difficult trying to raise children, and maintaining a job. I give you all a big high five, because it is well deserved. This does not excuse you from being a bad parent, you still have to spend time with your child, and do this thing called discipline them when they misbehave. It is also up to you to explain what is right and what is wrong to your child, you instill their morals and values not entertainment.

Entertainment is a business, it is about making money. In the 1950’s America was exposed to darling, perfect upper middle class, white families like the Cleavers. Daddy went to work, while the mother cleaned all day, and still managed to look like she was going to compete in a Miss. America pageant. She was so happy, and delighted to spend her days dusting and cooking apple pies. This is what we loved to see. In 2013, we are addicted to trash television. Why? It is entertaining! It is NOT real life, it is fabricated, exaggerated and funny. I highly doubt Paris Hilton is a complete moron, same with Kim Kardashian. Society puts these women down, because of jealousy. Who wouldnt want to get $30,000 just to send out a damn tweet! Who wouldnt want to be filthy rich, for having zero talent? I do not think these women are great role models, but I also believe nobody in the entertainment industry is a healthy role model.

If parents spent time with their children, and actually parented how much cocaine Lindsay Lohan shoves up her nose would not matter. Kim Kardashian’s need for attention, and the tape of her getting pounded by Ray J would not matter. KIMMMMY
