Why is it okay to make fun of Miley and not the creepo singing the song who invited her to dance with him?
And I think that when someone is in a family gym running with their body wrapped in metallic glittery fabric in nothing but a sports bra and booty shorts, they are living in some world where they are like somebody on some stage, somewhere. I don't think that my body is limited to so many eye views/day. If I was wearing something totally outrageous, I know (because I know its human nature) that MORE people would look at me. Miley simply took advantage of this exact same human nature I'm talking about. And she is proving my point ~ her being an "entertainer" doesn't make this unique to her ~ humans look at and discuss the outliers. Its our nature. And you, yourself, are doing it, days after saying you would be "HORRIFIED" by it.
As to how you feel about her being compared to a slab of meat? You may find it objectionable, but thats a shame you didn't speak up about it when you were snarking on her and calling her ugly and horrible and degraded.
Its a strange ethical code that will take two humans and say its okay to talk about one in a negative manner but not the other just because one is an entertainer and one is not.
They are both still human and the intent of the comments are still the same. Its pretty simple.
The fact that Miley Cyrus is an entertainer doesn't all of a sudden change the meaning of the words that come out of ones mouth

When I was picturing the other debate, the mental image I had in my mind was the "Only at Walmart" photos. Those pictures are making fun of everyday people who just do not know how to dress well. People who are overweight. They are making fun of people who are just trying their best who do not happen to be in the popular crowd.
When I was thinking of this thread, I was thinking of Miley's performance. Was it appropriate, what did it do to the children that watched it, what a tragedy that a young woman's life has spun out of control, that the performance was tasteless, and many other similar things. It never once entered my mind that SHE was ugly. When I read the previous comment on this thread, I totally took it to mean what she DID was ugly, not that she personally was ugly.
I think we are trying to make it sound different here when really there isn't much of a difference.
It is people making negative comments about how someone acts or what they are wearing when they are in a setting where other people can see them.
I'm not so sure why it matters who you are talking negatively about...you are still choosing to criticize someone for their choices. The intent is most definitely the same.
What exactly do you think that Miley's performance did to children who watched it? I admit I didn't watch it and my children didn't watch it, but I'm super curious what you think that it "did to children"?
Also, do you know Miley Cyrus? What are you basing the idea that her life has "spun out of control"? That seems to be both judgmental and ......well, couldn't one call such accusations, you know, like ~ cyber bullying? I'm making a wild guess here that you don't know the girl or anyone who DOES know the girl? Who are you to make such judgments about her personal life?
