Miley Cyrus 'Twerking,' Another of Disney's Human Train Wrecks 09/03/2013

Let's see: Britney, Lindsay, and now Miley. Disney produces human train wrecks, and then MTV slaps the faces of American parents as they parade their freak show of objectification in front of our kids. Shame on them -- and on us -- for funding it.

It's all so ironic because today we mark an important anniversary for women in this country. It was on this date, August 26, 1920, that the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which guaranteed women the right to vote, became law.

On Sunday night, Miley Cyrus exemplified what the end of the road looks like for the "women's liberation" movement. With tongue out, twerking with teddy bears, mouthing, "we can kiss who we want, we can screw who we want," Miley sang, "We Can't Stop" to gaping mouths in the audience and a firestorm of reaction nationwide. Miley needs to know that in fact, she can stop, and she should.

Miley Cyrus has been on a fast path downward, and our heart breaks to see a young woman appear at the VMAs in such a degrading performance.

The reaction comes not because of her age or upbringing but because she was absolutely classless and self-degrading. Even when she decides to 'grow up,' young women will follow in her footsteps. If we continue to tell our young women that they are nothing more than walking private parts, we can be assured they will leave "Hannah Montana" behind in pursuit of the Lindsay Lohan lifestyle we saw last night.

Miley has been on a fast path downward, and our heartbreaks to see a young woman so confused and obviously hurting. Women (and men) everywhere are outraged by her VMA performance, but the reality is that you can block MTV, but you still pay for it.
