Just in time to kick off Semana Snarka comes this Newsweek story: The Girls Gone Wild Effect. Are out-of-control celebs leading America to raise a generation of “prosti-tots”?
Thank you, Britney Spears. You’ve made Snark Week ridiculously easy.
Parents, listen up: even in a state as hot and muggy as Louisiana, where Britney grew up, kids wear underwear. So, no – going commando in a micro-miniskirt is not a good thing for your first grader to do. This falls under the category of the Big Duh.
But don’t just take my word for it. And don’t just read Newsweek’s hand-wringing take on the issue. The sharpest deconstruction of this phenomenon comes from South Park. The episode where Paris Hilton comes to town and gets South Park’s little girls to dress and act like her is titled “Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset.”
I think that’s all you need to know.
