Adam Lambert's kiss shows what's wrong with America
Post asserts that Lambert's kiss is just the latest manifestation of what's wrong with this hyper-sexualized society. This is more of a perental issue than a sexual preference issue. Nowadays, parents can't even watch TV with their kids anymore because eeverything is about sex. I would have been offended if my kids were looking for Taylor Swift and had to see that. I would've been offended if they saw the Britney Spears/Madonna kiss too. Or if it was Halle Berry & Jamie Fox, the point is the same. I'm not talking about movies we pay to go see. Almost everything on TV is soft porn nowadays. If we can have 5 second delays for swears, these things should be delayed too because they ARE planned just as Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" was planned. Just listen to their publicists before the shows. Whether it's the AMAs, Kim Kardashian sex tapes, or Nelly's swiping credit cards down women's behinds, we have puished the envelope too far. For the sake of our kids, it's time to close the envelope.
