Watching the Super Bowl with my seven sillies has evolved into its own high contact sport. Faster than a cornerback and with greater agility than a wide receiver, I frequently find myself leaping across the family room to retrieve the remote control only to fumble it just as the commercial comes to an end. Once again, my family has been blindsided by some sleazy overpriced advertisement.

Why, during what has become the most watched sporting event of the year, do the NFL and CBS continually expose my family to the overtly sexed up ads and indecent commercials? It’s not only irresponsible, it’s insulting that parents must keep the remote within arms’ reach so that we can beat the clock before our children are exposed to the sleaze.

I would love the freedom to sit and enjoy the overhyped multi-million dollar commercials without having to shield my sons’ eyes from indecently dressed women or plug their ears when crass jokes are made. Thankfully my children have grown accustomed to mom’s commercial commentating, so much so that even my three year old now shouts, “That’s inappropriate!” when a scantily dressed woman appears on the screen.

Apparently I’m not the only American who hates what’s become of the Super Bowl. Trending on Twitter at on @Beyonce are hundreds of viewers calling Beyonce’s show slutty and “nothing more than a stripper routine.”

While I didn’t watch the performance live, I did review it after the game to see for myself what all the fuss was. Truthfully, my Facebook page was lighting up with nothing but love for the former Destiny’s Child’s performance. But all I saw was a talented artist compromising her artistry and her beauty for the sake of the “sex sells” society. Let’s face it, had Beyonce gone on stage fully clothed and without the overdone gyrations, discussions about her performance would not be monopolizing social media tonight.

Perhaps the greatest tragedy of Beyonce’s performance is that while she tries to portray herself as a role model for young girls, she has done nothing to help them understand that they are more than their bodies. Her performance was a sell-out to the sex industry and a lost opportunity to show little girls what true beauty is.

So what does it say about our culture that Beyonce has to perform like a hooker to be praised, and commercials like must show oddly paired couples sucking face to sell their products? Nothing that we don’t already know. The virtues of modesty and decency have all but been abandoned by our culture, only to be replaced by crassness, debauchery and depravity.

Will I watch the Super Bowl next year? Since I’ve been a football fanatic for as long as I can remember, the chances are that I will. But I will do so with more vigilance, keeping the remote control ever closer to the chest and benching the raunchy halftime show.


Kevin Jackson's hilarious take on Race-Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism!

Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

"In actuality, black people will go to substandard hospitals, wait in long lines behind illegal immigrants, and be treated like non-citizens, as there simply won’t be enough healthcare to go around. There will be the occasional lucky few who will receive treatment, and we will parade them around like championship rings, thus continuing the ruse. As you can see, we’ve left out nothing. We touch more on this in Chapter 10: Promise Everything, Deliver Nothing. If for some reason we happen to run out of blacks, we will be able to apply our trade to the Mexicans with little disruptions. Plans are already underway for our next edition in this “How To” series: How to be a Latino "Race Pimp for Fun and Profit…even if you’re Illegal."

    I agree..Do not watch Beyonce because of her slutty performances. Alicia Keys is a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice but WHY do these performers feel it is necessary to REDO our national anthem? Was looking forward to her performance and was disappointed when she chose to ‘rework’ the arrangement.

    I posted on twitter how I am sick of blatant sexual references pushed in our face everywhere you go. TV is the worst – but having to pass the dozens of sex-infested magazines at the grocery checkout is another. My children are all adults but I fear for the young ones today. I am by no means a prude, but it’s just too much.

    I pretty much knew ahead of time that Beyonce was going to look like a over paid hooker on steroids,so I made sure to flip over to the “Puppy Bowl” during half time. This extremely well written article sums of what a huge portion of America feels, but unfortunately, OUR voice is not being heard. It is heart breaking that these EXTREMELY talented women are “selling their souls” to the devil for the “head rush” of being mentally raped by men all over the world. They get some sort of twisted rush of power @ knowing these “savages” cannot get to them to ravage their bodies in real life like they are doing in their sick twisted minds. Since the “male animals” cannot reach the “super stars”, many of them will take the closest thing that they can get, which might be their wives, girlfriends or maybe even a stranger.
    As an adult woman with a grown daughter, I am not faced with the trials of parents with younger children, yet I do feel so very guilty that MY generation has not stood up & demanded “OH HELL NO”…..not in my life time will you put porno out for all the world to see. Unfortunately, my shame at not doing my part is a little too late…. and I do not hold out a lot of hope for the “tide to turn” until the return of Christ to make life new again….

    Agreed. Sassy, classless and inappropriate.

    In recent years, I guess I just don’t see the need to literally “let it all hang out” for the world to see. There are countless women going to or performing at premiere events and it is like a skin fest. Talent should be the voice and true sex appeal doesn’t involve air humping and crotch shooting at a family event on national television…….

  • Im NotLisa

    I’m tickled pink that I am not the only one (figured I surely must be) to have viewed Beyonce’s crotch fest as inappropriate. It’s a PRIME time, world wide telecast ~ does the rest of the world think all American women have kinks in their necks from flipping their hair in such a manner, not to mention tearing off of the clothing. But then I remember when football players were clean cut/shaven and were not covered in tattoos. Sad day in America.
