Ann Barnhardt is asking the question that ought to be cause for pause for us all (the link is to her main page, she does not have links to individual posts, you’ll have to scroll to find what follows):
I don’t have TV, but I have seen on the internet two things that have happened on TV within the last week that terrify me. TV is now the direct analogue to the Roman “games” and “circuses”. If you are watching TV, or financially supporting it in any way by paying for cable or satellite feeds, you are now no better than the drooling throngs of Romans.
The first thing I saw was Chastity Bono appearing on “Dancing With The Stars”. Chastity Bono is Sonny & Cher’s daughter who is claiming to be a member of the non-existent category “trans-sexual”. She has mutilated her body and is taking male hormones in order to “appear” male.
Chastity Bono was sexually abused as a child by her lesbian pedophile nanny for years. She has spoken and written about this openly. This sexual abuse was what caused Chastity Bono to develop serious psychosexual disorders. When lesbianism didn’t “cure” her psychological problems, she sunk deeper into mental illness and began this process of self-mutilation. And this won’t “cure” her either.
My question to you is: ARE YOU ENTERTAINED? By watching and/or passively supporting this monstrous usury of Chastity Bono’s childhood trauma and resulting mental illness ARE YOU SUFFICIENTLY ENTERTAINED? Or will you be needing more?
Fast-forward to the four-minute mark of this video and behold a sweet, precious, smart, super-cute little girl who would lose her innocence just a few short years later. This is whose torture and pain you are watching for your evening entertainment:
I have not watched a single episode of Dancing with the Stars this season (and only snippets in past seasons).
I think I’ll keep it that way.
