Don't even get me started on the damage inflicted by giving approval to young girls for selling nutritionally inert food, encouraging them to utilize harassment and wheedling to do it, and reinforcing a club system of peer pressure, groupthink, and the death of individuality. Then there's the mixed message of You're Only Pretty If You Are So Thin You Are Borderline Anemic butting heads with Associate Your Cuteness With Selling Truckloads of Cookies and Candy. Top it all off with the ruthless competition the mothers engage in, buying presents and throwing parties to win the love of groups of mentally idle prepubescents with short attention spans, and you've got yourself the beginnings of a nice, fat psychotherapy bill.
And yea Baby Herc that was such a fantastically worded post! I may have to quote that for future...statements.
Why, thank you! I had fun writing it.
