Im/material Girls

There are just so many things wrong with this song, which I heard on Radio Disney yesterday. Just think—these asinine lyrics are now being internalized by the little kids who are going to be our students one day. The songwriters were probably under orders to write something vaguely rebellious for the tween set. Something training-bra bitchy, still but suitable for moving lots of CosmoGirl and Maybelline. If I ever have a daughter, I hope she’ll appreciate how lucky she is to grow up in a world in which girls are honored as the capricious, materialistic, bubbleheads that nature intended them to be.
