Against my better judgement I watched 30 minutes of the TLC show Sister Wives. Why? Why? Why?
You may remember that I wrote a TV Tirade a few weeks ago about how quality TV programing has gone down the toilet and my former love for TLC has dwindled. I am now thinking about boycotting TLC all together. I really thought I would give it another chance, but I think a straw just broke the camels back.
I didn't watch it on purpose...here's what happened. I came home from work, turned on the TV, went into the other room to read my back log of blogs, took a break by plopping down on the couch, and Sister Wives happened to be on. I've seen it on the news lately and how they may be facing criminal charges for their life style so I figured I would give them the benefit of the doubt and watch a few minutes.
I would like to say that this show makes me sick to my stomach...actually I may have just thrown up in my mouth a bit. If you don't watch TV and have no idea what Sister Wives is then I will summarize it for you. It's about 3 women who have been brain washed and whose self esteem is so incredibly low that they believe it is OK to let their husbands marry multiple women. The husband is a douche bag. I'm sorry to use such language...but he is. He is a man whore who can't keep his pecker in his pants. Shame on him. Shame on the women. Shame on their parents for raising them in a polygamist household where they were brainwashed into believing polygamy is OK. And shame on TLC and it's viewers who supported a TV show like this.
I can't believe I watched 30 minutes of it, I feel dirty and I think I need to shower to wash the show off of me and out of my head. IT'S CHEATING!!!!!! What woman in her right mind can go to sleep at night alone in her bedroom knowing (and maybe hearing) her husband lay with another women in another room. Add to that the fact that the husband is "courting" a fourth women. Go figure, the wives have a problem with him dating. Who would have thought? Multiple marriage is okay but not dating?
I am tempted to delete this post because I don't want to give the show any more publicity or attention than it already received...but I'm too fired up to keep it to myself.
I did stop and think, "Am I prejudice?, Is this the same as religious intolerance?". I don't know, I don't think I am being prejudice or religiously intolerant. I don't care about the religious part of it...because they don't mention that at ALL on the show. It just makes me think of places in Utah with gated communities where they force young girls to marry and breed (yes, I said breed because they aren't procreating for the joy of life...they are breeding to get more bodies into their cult like religion).
Okay-I feel better now. And just in case you were wondering why I am so fired up about this show, you may blame it on PMS.
