This Is Not A Post Critical Of Miley Cyrus
This is a post critical of every single person who feels comfortable referring to her as trashy, who mentioned any level or variation of her being a whore or a slut, and the people who have spent the past day or so mocking her in order to, I don’t know, build themselves up? Make themselves feel superior to her?
Miley Cyrus has been sold as a commodity to you and I, the public, since she was 14-years-old. Four-fucking-teen. Why is she a joke to people who claim to be compassionate adults?
Look at these photos
The first picture and the second picture are separated by maybe 18 or 19 years. For all but maybe 5 of those years, her entire function in life has been to perform for the gratification of adults, including the one playing the guitar in the first photo.
Why is all the hate and vitriol directed at her? Why is she the problem? She’s doing exactly what she’s been taught to do and she’s doing it admirably. She’s got the whole world looking and talking about her. As far as she has been taught, that is her entire function.
Don’t get me wrong, I think her performance was objectively awful, but I don’t blame her for that. I blame us.
Take the twenty-ish minutes to watch this episode of South Park. Yeah, this is a show with it’s own problems but they called the way that people would turn on Miley Cyrus six years ago. Is it really time for the lottery again?
When you’re done watching that, watch this.
If, after watching both clips you can’t emulate the basic human decency of Mr. Ferguson, rinse and repeat until your moral center runs clear.
