My MTV Generation

Rate this Entry
As a teenage girl, I often find myself watching MTV. But, I mean, when you really think about its programming, you gotta wonder if its damaging to our society.

So many young people subconsciously live their lives based on the social norms that MTV establishes...you know, saying that skinny, Caucasian girls who show a lot of skin and are willing to have sex with any hot guy are the 'most beautiful' and 'most desirable' girls.

Also, MTV features many dating shows like Next or Parental control and its clear that race is an issue as well on MTV. White people can only date other white people, and non-white can only date other non-white according to the show.

MTV also portrays lesbians and gays on those shows in their typical stereotypical ways. gays on Mtv are always flamboyant and very feminine sounding...and lesbians are always 'hot girls'

its just maddening sometimes because i feel like with all the power that mtv has over the young people of america, that they should have sort of a responsibility to at least attempt to show reality and not the superficial and shallow crap they always do.

    What happened to the MTV that played music? Sex, drugs, and Tila Tequila (who is a little bit of both) happened.

    If anyone bases their perceptions of themselves based on views of others, they have something seriously wrong with them. Are we incapable of seeing individuals?

    Also aren't they pushing Hispanic women a lot now or is that another network?

    wow I never really looked at MTV that closely before. but the depressing part is that everything you said makes complete sense. They should just go back to playing music all the time.

    yea, aura sphere, a lot of people fail to realize how much control over society MTV has, and how damaging their sterotypical views can be.

    so many young girls only think they are desirable or beautiful if they are tan, full of makeup, and willing to have sex with 'hot guys'

    MTV totally endorses superficial values and materialistic thinking.

    Yeah, I agree with that. Heck, MTV's not even alone in causing damage to society, as we also have fashion magazines, Playboy/Penthouse/those kinds of magazines, Girls Gone Wild, and others.

    I recall a day in late July/early August of 2007, I was going to see "Transformers" with my Mom that day. Before we left the house to see the movie, Dad left the TV on and I saw some girls dancing on a rooftop and taking off their clothes (while their breasts were covered by a black bar, their other privates, sadly, weren't.). I was shocked, horrified, and enraged that they did this to females. Did I mention that this happened around Noon Time during Summer Vacation between my Sophomore and Junior Year of High School?

    I realized the potential danger these things have caused since I took 6th Grade Health in Middle School. Heck, that same year, they even went as far as to have a seminar that pretty much stated it into our skulls.

    Here is what I plan to do to help try and stop this madness: Bring Misty Back onto Pokemon, shut down any and all Porn magazines (heck, maybe even make Porn in itself illegal on any and every third world country), either eliminate Playboy completely or change it to just being a mere journalist magazine with no nude pictures (depending on what should be the best course of action), eliminate Love Hina from the face of this world, cause MTV to revert all stereotypes, etc, etc.
