Alanis Morissette is Made of Plastic!

Alannis Morrisette naked

Ok, not. She was ridiculing the idiots in this country who got bent out of shape over Janet Jackson’s boob.

[rant] From what I have been able to piece together, the reason everyone got so upset is not because it was a boob, but because kids probably saw it. Here is why this is stupid:

Kids have seen naked boobs since the invention of boobs, and they have not been hidden like they’re bad things in nearly every civilization except America and traditional Muslim countries. It is not per se damaging to a kid to see a boob. It is not a crisis. Hiding them just makes them more attractive and interesting (not that attractive and interesting boobs are a bad thing).

But, seeing a boob might provoke questions from little Timmy. That seems to be the real fear. “Oh my god, Biff, little Timmy wants to know if I have the same thing. And, he wants to know where babies come from. Egad!”

There is a simple solution. Tell your kids the facts. (Obviously, the facts for a 2 year old are different than those for a 9 year old). Geez. People want to infringe on the 1st Amendment over a boob and impose $500,000 fines for showing a surprise loose tit just so they don’t have to have an awkward conversation with their kids. People with half a brain would see such accidents as opportunities to have certain conversations they have been putting off.
