16 reasons why I should hate “16 and pregnant”

28 Jan

1) The very cheesy, very clearly scripted voice over. “I wanted to fit into my prom dress! Boy, this baby is turning out to be much more trouble than I thought it would be.”

2) Lines like “this baby is turning out to be much more trouble than I thought it would be.”

3) Kids coming from effed up homes that are bringing their own kids into the same effed up situation.

4) people staying in obviously loveless, sometimes semi-abusive relationships.

5) preggo girls in cute cheerleader outfits

6) preggo girls trying on prom dresses (see reasons 1 and 2)

7) freaked out teen dads saying things like “chillax” I always hated the word “chillax”, and now I hate it even more.

8 ) seeing super fertile fame hungry girls not appreciating how fertile they are

9) People with names like “Ocean” and “Cowboy”. Those are their real names. Really.

10) Incompetent fathers playing video games instead of changing diapers.

11) Big pregnant bellies

12) stupid parents not teaching their kids about birth control

13) stupid parents not supporting their kids’ (very wise) decision to give a baby up for adoption

14) Moms and their daughters being pregnant at the same time (that’s just wrong on so many levels)

15) knowing that these girls’ parents actually consented to having their children filmed

16) the supposed “educational value” of the show which has the pretense of saying “teen pregnancy is bad” but actually says “hey look kids! get pregnant and we’ll put you on TV!”

And yet I still watch it. It’s like crack.

Me: I thought we had a deal.

Me: Screw you and let me torture myself in peace.

Me: But that means you’re torturing me too!

Me: so? You’re annoying.

    lol, I spent a good amount of time trying to convince my mother or aunt to have more kids so we could be pregnant together. I actually work with a woman who has a kid the same age as her grandkid, but she has a billion kids and somehow look 10 years younger than she is. On second thought, I dont know if I like her anymore…

    Cowboy, pfffff.

    I have to agree that this show is absolutely ridiculous yet so damn addicting! It makes me want to scream though…

    …and worse yet is that I’ve actually heard teen girls say that they wanted to get pregnant to try and get on the show! GAH!
