We've Come a Long Way, Baby

July 13, 2012

From Leslie Gore crying because her man’s been cheating, and what can she do, because she knows he really loves her

And Lou Christie asking a woman to “live by his rules” (let him fool around until he’s ready to settle down with her)

To Carrie Underwood trashing her ex’s car because the guy cheated on her

(Note that if a guy did that to a woman’s car we wouldn’t feel nearly so sympathetic)

To Bruno Mars and One Direction singing about how the girls they like are beautiful just the way they are

And Orianthi telling her ex that while he thinks she’s stupid and useless, her new boyfriend thinks she’s smart and beautiful

(Although I’d like her to realize it for herself, without needing a guy’s opinion)

We are sort of moving in the right direction with what the pop songs are putting in the kids' heads.
