Say it ain't so, JoBros

A few months ago, my husband began paying our kids NOT to watch the Disney Channel. I'm confident that most of the sass I get channels directly from Hannah Montana through my daughter. Hazel can mimic Miley's eye roll, hand jesters and sarcasm perfectly. Until yesterday, I thought The Jonas Brothers were innocent enough. And that, it seems is exactly what Disney is hoping.

Disney is selling sex to kids, pretending they're not, and making a fortune while forcing their audience into cultural bankruptcy.

Go ahead, read the article Regarding The Jonas Brothers.

Did you know that they perform in their much publicized purity rings and then shoot, spray, hose the audience with white foam?

Sex is confusing enough. I don't want a propaganda machine urging chastity while subliminally serving up porn to my kids.

I'm not sure what's worse. Getting the foam in your hair. Or getting the songs in your head.

Oh, no. I would say the latter is definitely worse. I'm lucky my kids are still too young for Jonas Brothers. I'm dreading that phase!

Huh. So Miley Cyrus is the root of the evil in my house? No more Disney channel ever.

Ha ha ha ha ha haaaa.

You know, the company I work for did the website for Hannah's latest Movie AND the Jonas Bros website (We do a ton of DisneyChannel websites).

As much as it seems to irritate parents, I really like it as an account to work on.
