"I hate that she acts like such a brat. She is pregnant, not disabled."
You can skip this whole post if you don't want to read my similar complaints about this show each and every time I watch it.
Once again a young girl is surprised that her boyfriend doesn't want anything to do with her new baby. To make is worse, her sister, who got pregnant at the same time, chose to have an abortion. The tension in the house is just dripping with sadness. To show the sonogram on the television to hurt the other sister was a bit much though.
Stupid stupid girls regretting choices they should never have had to make in the first place. I really am tired of hearing these girls lament their lost teen years and all the fun they are missing out on. When you see one sister tell the other that she thought the abortion was the better choice shows just how insane this whole teen pregnancy epidemic has gotten.
Adding to the fun, the baby was born on the same night that the teen and her friends went to a haunted house - that is never a good way to begin your life.
This is one of the only shows that makes me talk directly to the screen like some kind of raving lunatic. How does anyone raise teen girls without putting the fear of God into them? Don't even get me started on the boys.
This show is hard hitting and not glamorous and it's not meant to be. I hope it turns one girl away from trying to add more stress to her life. Lucky for this girl that she has such a devoted and supportive mother. Women really do hold up the world, don't they?
GAH - they show TWO episodes at once now??? The next girl wants to be an MMA cage fighter until she gets pregnant. For once, young father Forest (I KNOW!) actual steps up and does the right thing. I hope things will work out but I know that they won't. Sigh.
"I can't cage fight and I can't hunt. I can't do anything I like to do anymore."
I am gonna need to watch something animated just to even out my emotions after this one.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
