The View mocks Carly Fiorina’s looks…fair game or just mean?

The women at The View were indignant when Donald Trump took a swipe at Carly Fiorina’s looks, but why do they reserve the right to mock her? Look at the clip and share your thoughts.

Is Katina Powell proof positive that shame has died?

I watched this clip and I was astounded to hear Katina Powell speak so casually about pimping her daughters out. She has written a book about her relationship to the Louisville Cardinals. She supplied the women who were used to help close the deal with the college recruits. This is not shocking. It probably happens on more campuses then we will ever know, but to see a woman speak like this is the shocker. What happened to shame? When did it die? She and her daughters will be appearing on The View tomorrow to share their story. Over the years we have seen the media take a quick descent to the bottom, and bottom feeders are now welcome to share their tales withe the world. We saw this with the Tiger Wood debacle. We saw women line up for their opportunity at the microphone. They all told of their antics with Woods. The media elevated them. They were no longer women who knowingly slept with a married man. They were victims. They bore no shame, but Woods was the villian. Shame no longer exists. Do as you please and if you can sell your story fame although it might be temporary awaits you.

If you are not celebrating Caitlyn Jenner you better be quiet

caitlyn jenner
We met Caitlyn Jenner yesterday. Her introduction was met with celebration. Even the president tweeted his support. She is finally living in her own truth, but what happens to the people who were a part of Bruce Jenner’s life? How do his ex-wives feel about his truth? How do his children feel about his truth? Some will say this is none of our business, but Jenner is a part of reality television. He lived his life on camera and in the summer she will be taking us along on her transition journey. So she is living her truth, but another truth is there are people in his past life who are also forced to live it with her.

Do we really want to know?

I read an article the other day about the cheap clothing sold by places like H & M and Forever 21. People flock to these places because of the prices, but the conditions that the workers endure are often deplorable, but does it matter to the average consumer? What about those Apple watches that are made in China, a country not known  for coddling their workers people are proudly sporting the watches. We love the latest and the greatest. Do we really want to know the origins of the watch? Do we want to know the life stories of all the people who helped create that piece or art you proudly affix to your wrist? Do we read the articles and simply shake our heads or do we actually feel compelled to make a change? Share your thoughts.

Britt McHenry, ESPN reporter suspended for going Mean Girl on towing attendent

“In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things. As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake.”–Britt McHenry

When is an apology not an apology? When it is not directed at the person you wronged. Britt McHenry’s epic, insulting rant was directed at a towing company employee. Her car was towed and she was mad, but she was not ranting about the tow she was insulting the worker. So instead of issuing an apology via Twitter she needs to be apologizing to the worker the recipient of the rant.
