America, America, This Is You

We're not usually the type to agree with the boomers who rant about how our youth are being polluted by a society that abuses sex in pop culture, but when seven-year-olds are behaving exactly like people do in the worst of rap videos, we have to admit that perhaps there's something to that argument.

Don't watch the video above if you don't want to begin your day with something awfully depressing.

Their parents should all be lined up side by side, and one person should run all the way down the line with their hand out and smack each and everyone of them in the face, and then they should run backwards and backhand them too.

WOW

Good LORD! Freak Dancing is NOT the "new" hula hoop.

(Some of our parents in the olden days used to think that the hula hoop was mighty suggestive.
They even went as far as to say, "this could lead to DANCING" *gasp*. If they could see it now…)

Get these babies started in a hopscotch game, and fast!

No. 10 bedbugsandballyhoo says:

I would be more disturbed by this, but I just finished watching a puppet show my daughter has been putting together all morning. It consisted of two laundry baskets for a stage, pictures she drew of a wolf, a tiger, a bear, a little girl, and a dragon, which she cut out and pasted on popsicle sticks, and wrote a play about them all going on an adventure together. I think my scenario is more of the norm.
Anyways, who am I to judge if some parents want to raise their children to be their party pals rather than productive members of society? It certainly has made millions for the Lohans. And we all know money makes everyone happy and everything all better.

Those kids parents need their ass kicked.You could tell that the little girl was being told what to do by someone off camera. My son is just starting school and to think that this is the type of stuff that my son could be exposed to in school.

I agree, Suck, but I'd like to add all the Lohan children ass well before it's too late. Stop the madness!

No. 32 John says:

There is nothing any of us can do to stop civilization from "progressing". So little kids are learning to grind eachother, it's human nature. We are sexual beings. Yes it's sad to watch cuz you want kids to be cute and innocent, but you've got little girls being sold into prostitution all over the planet and I don't see ANYONE doing anything about it. We are a cruel species consumed with having sex and making more of the species, be fruitful and multiply everyone! Those kids are just doing what the bible says, and isn't that what we want? good christian children having as many good christian welfare babies as the planet will allow? it's time to thin the heard.

No. 33 tiffany says:

That was very appalling. I can't believe that this went on with other adults in the background cheering them on like they was performing in the the school of arts. Yes, pop culture may be raunchy, but even in some of the videos i have seen i've not seen so much contact, and never a man who got in the "doggie style" position. Those kids looked like grown ups in the 21 and over club, and even some of us don't dance like that, this is sad, and its seems they don't even have a chance, and is about to enter the world of promiscuity.

I can't decide what is more depressing; the video showing kids having pretend intercourse or the comments that are trying to justify it. *sigh*

I'd say we're doomed as a species, but that's not true. Clearly we will reproduce no matter what.
