What Not To Be When You Grow Up

08 Aug
Y’know maybe I’m just an old timer… but I don’t see any role models out there.  And the ones I do see – scare me.  Let’s take Lindsay Lohan – a few years back she was that cute little bundle of bossoming joy in the Disney movies.  When she did Parent Trap we had visions of her maybe growing up to be the precocious teen who was going to go to Harvard… then in the Herby Movies .. we kinda moved that to Hot Co-Ed at Princeton maybe… now… it’s more like "Skank Paris Hilton Knock-Off".
Let’s look at her own words … regarding her wanting to be just like Marilynn Monroe and entertain the troops…  "It’s so amazing seeing that one woman just going somewhere, this beautiful sex kitten, who’s basically a pinup, which is what I’ve always aspired to be," Lohan said, adding that she would prepare for her trip to Iraq by taking shooting lessons with her security guard.".
Okay… we went from kid with a future to her highest aspiration in life… is to be a pinup girl.  A poster on the wall of some lonely bastard’s apartment used for – whatever purpose comes to your mind.  Yeah… there’s a role model for women everywhere.
