Say what? and my new favorite reality TV show

Last Sunday at Dollywood, we were standing in line for a ride.  Two girls - I would say 8th or 9th grade - were in front of us.  On their shirts, they had B**ch 1 and B**ch 2.  My mouth dropped when I read their shirts.  My husband was so mad and offended because we have a little girl.  He talked very loud - so they could hear him - about how demeaning and derogatory that word is to women.  Other people behind were talking about how they were offended.  But some people in line ahead of us were laughing at their shirts.  They were taking pictures of them in the shirts.  Is it funny if young girls call themselves that word?  I don't think so.  I teach middle school where some girls just want attention so badly, they will let boys treat them any way.  They will do things with boys at parties just to get attention. No shame or embarrassment at all. I am so thankful that my daughter has a strong male role model that treats her like a young lady.  Thank you Eric!
These girls were not old enough to drive themselves to Dollywood.  Some adult had to see what they had on.  I wonder what did their parents think of their shirts.  Did they laugh too?  I would kill A if I caught her wearing a shirt like that.    We had a great discussion with C and A about words and clothing appropriate clothing choices, as well.
On another note,  I watched on my computer reruns of Melissa and Tye on CMT.   It's Melissa from the Bachelorette and Dancing with the Stars.Love it and them!   They are so cute and down to earth.  I watched until about 2 in the morning.  Love summer break!  Ha!

I love Melissa and Tye too! I just can't believe parents would let their daughters wear those shirts. That's horrible!
