Pregnant And Dating
This new TV show is wrong on so many levels, I just don't know where to start. But let me try.
1. They're pregnant.
2. They're going on dates.
That's pretty much all the information you need to know just how fucked up these women are.
I read the bios of each woman and they all seem to be accomplished job-wise. Two of the women were left by their men once the guys heard they were pregnant. Bummer, but it happens to women all the time, so I guess they'll just have to deal like the rest do. At least these chicks have good jobs.
And while I don't have a problem with single mothers, I do have a problem with women who aren't even mothers yet, dating, while they are pregnant.
Clearly, they've not had good luck with men. Clearly, they've made a few poor choices assessing the type of man they decided to have a child with, who ultimately didn't stick around, and clearly, they seem to be a bit selfish if they think finding a new baby daddy is more important during this period than concentrating on their pregnancy and all the things they should be doing to prepare being a mother. Going out on dates is not one of them. I hope they're setting money aside for their kids' therapy sessions.
And what the hell is wrong with the men who date these women??? I'm sure there are guys out there who want families and don't really mind where they come from, but they probably should give some thought to the fact that the woman they are dating, is dating them while pregnant with someone else's child. Clearly, she was with that person until very recently, especially given that she's in the first stages of her pregnancy. I'd say the chick's a bit of a trainwreck to begin with. WHY do you want to mess with that??
"Reality" TV has gotten out of whack, for sure. And people don't seem to mind being exploited for money. I can't tell you how many times Ed and I are watching TV, see an ad for a new reality show, turn to each other and say, "Seriously?? You've got to be kidding me."
Nope, not kidding. What can possibly be next?
