bitching and bimbos

 soundtrack: brandon; think twice // thoughts: `you’re never gonna find…`

through dinner today, i watched today tonight. this usually doesn’t happen as i don’t have dinner with my parents, or we have dinner at a time when the horribly bullshit show isn’t airing. however, today, due to my superficial and hypocritical mother, i glanced at the television with a mouth full of rice only to almost spit it back out again. vomit, i mean.

apart from the stupidly un-newsworthy crap current affairs shows air, today tonight has been one of my least favourite spots on the spectrum of television because everyone reels its cases in as a point in their arguments.

it’s like OMFG THAT BRAND OF DISHWASHING LIQUID GIVES YOU CANCER!!! or OMFG THERE’S THIS GUY IN OUR TOWN THAT SCAMS MONEY!!! if anyone ever tells me ‘i saw it on today tonight so it has to be true’ i will probably literally hit them in the face. laughing comes first, of course.

tonight, the segment i was unlucky enough to catch was an advertisement for a website; www.missbimbo.com

ok, so it wasn’t actually an advertisement. it was actually a bunch of angry lesbians (or feminists, i guess) who have nothing to do with their time and ended up surfing the net and finding a site that promotes bimbos, and got angry. woopdeedoo. they even took the time to register so they could take shots of all the stuff you can do at missbimbo.com, including tanning, playing around with clothes, impressing boys and cosmetic surgery, and then filed it on to a retarded current affairs show to tell the world how mass media and websites like these are giving girls the wrong image and ideas of what is expected of them. i mean, come on; obviously what is expected is not a nice, pretty girl but one that wants to challenge all men and fight for their EQUAL PAY!!!!! fuck you feminists. if you didn’t exist i wouldn’t have failed my exams.

ironically, a few ad breaks later, today tonight had a report about fashion piracy, and how rich people buy celebrity dresses for cheaper, which is killing the big brands. how many teenagers do you know that buy designer dresses? how many teenagers do you hear of that have had cosmetic surgery?

and how many adults?

and so, even though i’m not the biggest fan of the bimbo industry, i’m left to question these angry feminists/parents/wannabe-journalists that work for current affairs shows. i’m left wondering why it’s acceptable for ‘adults’ to chase beauty, be thin and have boob jobs while they want teenagers to dig a hole and study. maybe one day they’ll realise that it is they who influence what we see, they who invented plastic surgery and they who buy the more expensive brands of clothing and make up. in this case, they’ll either A: let us change our faces any way we like or B: give it all up and stay ugly forever.

    I’m sure you’ll find a current affair much more enjoyable if you think of it as a comedy show, since it kinda is.
