That's Wrong

I just caught the beginning of this show Made on MTV. I was clicking through the channels and watched it for the first couple minutes.

They've got this girl in a high school that's just kinda average. Really funny, lots of fun to hang out with, but a little pudgy, not really caring about fashion or makeup. Of course the high school is one that's more preoccupied with looks and all of that nonsense than your normal high school, and she gets picked on pretty badly. So what does MTV do? They say they're going to turn her into one of them! What the heck?!?!?

How about punishing the kids that are being nasty? Or helping her to realize that she's fine just the way she is. But, no. They have to go and make another superficial airhead instead of supporting this girl that has a brain and thinks for herself.

I have major problems with that. And needless to say, I changed the channel pretty quickly.

Ah yes, I've seen that show and couldn't agree with you more. Then again, I was a complete non-conformist in high school and I still like to celebrate those who march to the beat of a different drum...
