I must be the only one ...

Apparently, everyone is making a big to-do about some MTV girl who claimed to be bi-sexual but is actually straight. Why people even care about this is beyond me, but I have to admit that I read the article in an effort to try and figure out what all the fuss was about. And look what I saw:

"'Tila has and has had a boyfriend for over a year, and she's not really bi. She's made out with some girls in her past, as all girls have, but she is not bi at all,' the source said."

As all girls have???? Well, I must be the only women in the world who hasn't made out with another women. Does this make me counter cultural?

  1. I'd rather be counter-cultural then. It shows a very myopic view of their world, doesn't it?

    I like Pat Sajak's view: "The people who are the least qualified to comment on politics and culture are those of us who live in the sheltered world of Hollywood." (or something to that effect) It takes a gameshow host to see it.

    I loved the miscommunication post, though. I wish I had written down all of mine. I've got some doozies, too.

  2. This is a perfect example of a generalization. He could have written "some" instead of "all".

    Your miscommunication post was hilarious. One thing I replied with once when startled was "Did you just say what I think you said?' and it was repeated differently ;).

  3. You think we could sue him for defamation of our character? Isn't that what they call it?
    I have certainly never participated in anything of the sort. :[

  6. I have heard that too and feel some empty people who have way to much free time on their hands will do anything for publicity hoping to fill that empty space.
    And you are not alone icky.

  7. You ladies are all so much fun! Thanks for sharing in my surprise at reading that comment. I guess we are all a bunch of "counter culture hipsters" (stole that from Tami).

  8. Yes you are counter cultural...welcome to the club:o)

    I am sick of this statements going unchecked by the media.

    When a young woman reads this she may question if she then is normal! Sick....

    I never watched MTV...I lived in the sticks and we couldn't get cable...only had CBS, NBC, ABC, and my senior year FOX!

    shwew I am OLD!

  9. No, Cathleen, you're not the only one!!!!! And, then, the problem is, some girls will read this, and think, "hmmmm..... I haven't made out with a girl. Maybe I should have..... Am I weird? Different?"

    Hello, Cathleen. My name is Tracy and I stopped by your blog for the first time- your writing is beautiful. Blessings! (And, by the way, I hope you enjoy the Beth Moore books. I have both, too!)

    Thirsty for Him,
    Tracy

  10. Jennifer,

    You are NOT old. You're just counter cultural, like me!

    Tracy,
