Wednesday’s Wonderings

I tend to be about as uptight as the average middle-aged housewife living in the Bible Belt, but I’m genuinely confused by the uproar surrounding “The Playboy Club”.   The show has been cancelled, reportedly because sponsors were pulling ads due to public outcry against the promotion of pornography… but golly gee, the show was hardly pornographic.   A public beach reveals more skin (and action) than this sort-of-historical show does.  What am I missing here?

Another thing I don’t get: the “Occupy Wall Street” protests.  I’ve just spent about an hour reading through the occupiers’ website, a tumblr page, and various news articles, and I can’t seem to figure out the point of the protest.  What do they hope to accomplish?  They have tons of complaints about the current state of the economy but no concrete suggestions for solutions…

  1. Hmmm…I was still trying to figure out if I liked the show. I’m not surprised it got cancelled though. I don’t see it as pornography…the story-line was just blah. I like the costumes though. And the beach definitely reveals more…a lot more.

  2. Monique,

    I love your post. Your right about the Playboy Club being canceled.

    I mean they don’t mind airing housewives who go around fighting, drinking and getting divorces.

    They will air the Sisterwives like it is okay to have multiple wives. They will even air two guys kissing in Brothers and Sisters. Go Figure.

    My husband and I were just talking the other day about this whole protesting Wall Street.

    Makes you want to go WHAT?.

    Have a wonderful week!
