Welcome to the most opinionated writing series that this paper will probably ever feature. In Why our Generation Is Doomed, I’ll be talking about all the stupid things we watch, do, and listen to.
For part one, I’ve chosen to talk about Honey Boo Boo. This show is possibly the worst piece of trash to ever be allowed to be shown on TV. If you haven’t seen it, I’ll give you a quick synopsis. It’s about a trailer-trash family who got famous from being on the show Toddlers and Tiaras (which is terrible as well). The mother, June Shannon, who looks like a human thumb, is one of those terrible mothers who puts their daughter through the pedophile infested, botox’ed 5-year-old life, of child beauty pageants. The father, Mike Thompson, who got June pregnant when she was 15 and he was 22, isn’t much better of a person. They have 4 kids, the center of their TV show being Alana Thompson, also known as Honey Boo Boo.
So why do I hate this show so much? It glorifies the bottom part of the IQ bracket of society. It focuses on a family where they have a girl under 10 drinking more Mountain Dew than I ever will in my entire life, their dinner consists of roadkill deer, and they embody the worst part of trailer trash America. I am embarrassed to live on the same planet as these people, let alone be around people who enjoy this type of show. It just shows how the entertainment level in this country is degrading to the point where quality shows and interesting intelligent programs are overshadowed by insufferable unintelligent crap like this. It’s these types of things that make me lose faith in humanity, and this is one of the reasons that, yes, our generation is doomed.
