Case in point: I was watching Maury yesterday. I don't normally consider him to be my provider of hard-hitting news, but he actually focused on something useful. If you have a daughter, you might want to sit down. You probably are, anyway, if you're at a computer, but I just want to make sure.
Maury brought a costume epidemic of sorts to my attention:
NOOOOOOOOOOO. NO. NO. NO. It's bad enough that those costumes come in teen sizes, but now they're FOR LITTLE GIRLS? I'm not kidding, that's the "Girls Miss Minnie Mouse Costume." GIRLS. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. (And this other costume is even WORSE.)
But wait, there's more! This particular Minnie costume had two positive reviews, including one that is obviously from some DELUDED PARENT who thinks this is "super cute." Super cute for YOU, an ADULT, is a different story, but this is NOT any kind of cute for your daughter whose age is still a single digit! STOP FORCING YOUR KIDS TO GROW UP OR THEY WILL HATE YOU LATER and try to reclaim their lost childhoods once they make a lot of money and buy a house called Neverland and LOOK WHAT HAPPENED THERE.
Ahem. Maury Povich, you've gained a few points in my book.
Please tell me you're as horrified by this as I am. Please. Comments.
