This Post Isn’t About Miley Cyrus… August 29, 2013

… Well sort of. It’s about Robin Thicke’s mom, Gloria Loring.

“I don’t understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do,” Loring told The Insider after watching Cyrus and Thicke’s medley of We Can’t Stop, Blurred Lines and Give It 2 U.

I just keep thinking of her mother and father watching this. Oh, Lord, have mercy,” she added. “…I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son. The problem is, now I can never ‘unsee’ it.” [SOURCE]

Seriously, lady?

Have you not seen the video for Blurred Lines or even listened to the lyrics? Let me break it down for you; your son is no gentleman. He wrote a song glorifying date rape, for crying out loud!

And Miley Cyrus’s terrible twerking is what you found degrading and insulting? Are you frigging kidding me, lady? You need to stop worrying about what Cyrus’s parents think and consider for a moment where you went wrong in your own child rearing.

Everyone wants to throw Miley under the bus for breaking some moral standard but last time I checked Mr. Thicke was a thirty-six year old grown ass married man and father. What’s his damn excuse?

What Ms. Loring should be commenting on is how she failed as a parent to teach her son that women aren’t meant for objectification. She should be mortified by her own son’s behavior and performance. Thirty six or not, if my son wrote a rape song and made a music video that was one pastie shy of a porno I would hit him with a purse full of bricks, not give an interview blaming the back up dancers.

For her to condemn Cyrus’s vulgarity and give her son a free pass for his is utterly, mind-blowingly asinine. As a mother of a son I emphatically do not appreciate Ms. Loring’s son telling our young men that his behavior is an acceptable form of entertainment.

This double standard of Ms. Loring’s is the very reason why certain judges think it’s OK for teachers to rape their students. From Simcha Fisher

Think I’m exaggerating? Cherice Morales was fourteen when her 49-year-old teacher began to rape her. Three years later, she killed herself. The reason her story is in the news is because her rapist, Stacey Rambold, got 30 days in jail for the rapes.

His sentencing judge, Judge G. Todd Baugh, who never met the victim, said that she was “as much in control of the situation” as Rambold was, and that she was “older than her chronological age.” “It was not a violent, forcible, beat-the-victim rape like you see in movies,” he said.

Miley Cyrus isn’t the problem. She is just a symptom of it. No, the Robin Thicke’s of the world, and the ones excusing his behavior, are the damn problem. So the next time Ms. Loring opens her mouth it should be to give society a big fat apology for failing so miserably as a parent. If she has nothing else to contribute than she should keep it shut.

/end rant.
