So last night I made teh preemptive move to say I was out of blog material. I should have just waited another two hours because in my boredom, I watched Teen Mom.
Let me state right here and right now- any teenager who gets pregnant or gets another teenager pregnant is an idiot. And any parent who doesn't have their teenage girl on some form of birth control is asking for trouble. And another mouth to feed. I remember clearly the day my mom told me she was putting me on birth control despite my protests that I wasn't having sex. Her response? "I don't care, and I really don't want to know. But I do know I'm not willing to take care of a baby because you got caught in a moment with a guy." True story, mom.
So I love watching the trainwrecks on Teen Mom because not only do they have some serious issues, but they just further prove the point that you should have to have a license to have babies. If you've never seen this, please go HERE to get familiar.
Let's take them one by one, shall we?
Maci: OK, so I kind of like Maci. Of all the girls, she is trying to get her shit straight. She's a good mom to Bentley and she has finally dumped her sperm donor, Ryan. Ryan is a fucktard and should be banned from having kids ever again. But Maci works, she goes to school, and she's taking care of her son. I like her.
Catelynn: This girl apparently cheated on her babydaddy/boyfriend with her ex. And that's a shame because babydaddy/boyfriend wants to marry her. And she should do whatever it takes to keep this boy because frankly? She is homely. She will never win a beauty contest and it's only going to get worse with age. She's in her youthful prime with her buck teeth that braces failed to fix, the weird eye spacing, etc. It's really just an unfortunate total package, but her mom was a drunk so I can only assume maybe she was drinking while pregnant? GREAT ROLE MODEL. But Catelynn and bd/bf gave their baby up for adoption to give her a better life. Honestly? Smartest couple on this show. They at least recognize they aren't ready or capable, but they struggle with that decision. And then they are both only 17 and think they are going to get married. HA! I've been down that road and I'm going to put money down in 3 years? Broken up.
Farrah: Oh Farrah. Seriously. First off, she obviously has some kind of speech impediment. Her speech is so labored and slow that you just think maybe her brain can't move that fast. So maybe it's more of a mental handicap then? I don't know but her voice drives me insane. It's inherited from her mother who is probably THE craziest mother I've ever seen in action. Her mom is the definition of unbalanced and only Farrah is able to recognize this. You'd think Farrah's dad would back her up and be like, "Listen wifey poo- you be crazy. You need meds." Farrah's mom literally punched her in the face, then wielded a knife at police officers trying to arrest her and she thinks she's not guilty. WTF? What?? WHAT?? How can you NOT be guilty? It's caught on MTV cameras for god sakes. But I do feel bad for Farrah since babydaddy is not in the picture (I think he died or something..seriously) but still. They show her not knowing how to pay bills and shit.
(Side rant: Dear Parents: Please, please, please teach your child the responsiblity of paying their own bills. Some day you will die and your child will be a boil on society with their whining and stupidity. And then people will remember you as a sucky parent.)
Amber: I saved the best for last. And by best I mean crazy. Amber. Oh, Amber. I hope some day you see this. You need professional help. And possibly heavy doses of medication. And parenting classes. And you need to step away from tight clothes, tanning booths, and eyeshadow. Please. It's not ok to look like this and I am really surprised you can even hold down a part time job looking like a hooker. In the day time.
Anyways. Amber is her "fiance" Gary are horrible together. First off, they shouldn't be together and for the sake of America- they need to stop having sex which could potentially produce more offspring. My taxes are high enough god dammit. Amber SCREAMS at Gary. All of the time. And every time the poor guy tries to defend himself she just screams some more. But Gary is kind of a fat, lazy fuck so he has no clue what to do or what's going on. How he even maneuvered his wee wee in the hole in the first place I'll never know. But they were engaged, then she dumped him for being stupid. Then she begs for him back, so he comes back. Then she's PISSED that they aren't engaged and wants to be. So he proposes again and she gets PISSED because he didn't do it to her standards. Are you serious? Once you end an engagement and get back into it, the "tradition" of the whole thing is gone. And she wants it to be done the right way, etc. Well......I'm not a marriage expert...but USUALLY people wait until their married to have kids. That's kind of considered the "right way" or at least "traditional". Seriously- this girl is a train wreck.
Oh- and THEN. Oh my god. So she's at a chocolate store or something, and while Amber and Gary are talking- their daughter is running wild in the store. CONTROL YOUR KID. I hate people who let their kids do whatever. Seriously. It pisses me off to no end. Oh! And then they go on vacation- a road trip to Florida. Well, most 18 month old kids don't want to be in a car for 16 hours. Actually- most adults don't either. So Leah (the baby) is screaming and trying to get out of her seat..crying..etc. There's Amber- trying to sleep and getting pissed off because she can't. Well guess what you fat ass? Take care of your daughter. Read her a book, give her a snack, play with a toy, etc. Seriously- of ALL of the moms on the show Amber is far and above the worst mom on there. And that's not an easy thing to say- that someone is a terrible mother. But truly. Her daughter? Is a teen mom waiting to happen.
So yes. Do you watch Teen Mom? What are your thoughts on these moms??
