Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Against my better judgment, and after being clearly warned not to do this, I went to the RIP Amanda Todd page for a dose of reality. For a moment, I stepped into the minds and hearts of some of the most disgusting, vile, wretched creatures to ever walk on this planet. Teens.
The page was obviously started by well intentioned friends, or maybe even her family. Some of the comments are the most disturbing words I think I’ve ever read. Some of the threads have 5000 plus comments on them. It will only take you a second to find out what I’m talking about. I’m not going to post any of it here, because I want you all to be curious and go there for yourselves and then feel the immense panic for this generation and our world as I do now…that way we can all storm the exits at the same time! These kids are obviously being raised on auto pilot, by deaf and mute parents. Horrible punks, not to mention none of them can spell.
I’m sad to even think about the home life of some of these kids. I clicked on some of their profiles. Their personal pages are enough to make you throw up. This is an entirely new breed of children being raised now. Facebook, chat rooms, violent video games and sexting. I’m considering throwing my computer out the window right now and moving to the Little House on the Prairie.
Here is a child that is dead, yet she is still being taunted by her peers. I only pray her own family is too distraught to even be looking at Facebook right now.
Listen folks. I am not up for mother of the year award or anything. My kids are little so I readily admit right now that I have not raised teens. But where is the common damn sense? Because God, I feel frightened right now that so many of you are failing. Miserably. Please try harder to get it right. Do better. Parent. Really parent. Set boundaries. Enforce them. Get them off the fucking computers. Hide the xbox and video games for a while. Know what the hell they are doing. Gheez. I was a horrible teen and my parents made mistakes but I was disciplined. Some of these kids don’t appear to even have a conscience. How does that happen? That’s a recipe for evil and hatred and these kids will be breeding soon, hell, some are already. Forget the zombie apocalypse…we have a bigger issue on our hands.
I sound like a really old person right now. I remember my grandpa saying funny stuff, like, ‘You know, that fella, he takes that pot!” referring to a dude who was a pot smoker. But seriously, this is the first generation of kids being raised in this environment. They’re lab rats. I remember when we were growing up parents insinuated that MTV was bad. They were scared of it because it was new and different. And that was a millenia ago when it was actually about music. Atari and Space Invaders probably didn’t teach us to be very violent or insensitive. We didn’t call it bullying, it was simply ‘being cruel.’ People will always be cruel. But mocking dead kids and forming fan clubs like “Amanda Todd got what she deserved” makes me want to Kung Fu your punk asses on behalf of your parents. Then I’m going to go Kung Fu your parents, because this shit is crazy. I’m sort of hoping some of you parents of teens will share your thoughts on this, too.Now go kick a teenager’s ass. (Just kidding, of course.) Maybe you could just smash their electronics and speak to them kindly, and actually listen to their answers instead.
