The other day some 16 and Pregnant show followup was on for about 15 minutes while I was finishing something in that room and it was two things: 1. Literally a case study in Game. Each girl had gotten pregnant by an Alpha, and then each one had a Gamma who was their friend and they really didn't like but it was the best they could do, but they didn't sleep with them. 2. A study in the future of America as the girl's "families" were all women helping them (mom's, aunts, etc.) No men around except Gammas, I didn't even see a single Delta.The bigger problem than the small number of individuals featured is the way that this is being marketed to an entire generation. The number of pregnant teenagers is actually on the decline; one can no more trust the media's portrayal of society in this regard than in the apparent fact that all American couples now consist of attractive, slender white women married to faithful, considerate black men with college degrees.
Given the increase in single motherhood across all demographic lines, this is a much scarier trend than even FED fiscal policy to me. A country with strong families can bounce back from most anything, but a country run by single momss, checked-out deltas, and alphas having an easier time than in the last 200 years is a total disaster waiting to happen.
But if it is not a worrisome indication of what society is, it is a troubling indication of what the media wants society to become.
