It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

The Woes of Being a Bad Parent - I'M NOT A FREAKING FISH I DON'T NEED TO SWIM!

Last week I posted a video on my segment, "Are People Really This Stupid?" that drew a lot of attention from several of my readers, and from those on YouTube.

It was about a boy named Stephen who wanted to get a tattoo for his 18th birthday, and went ballistic on the tattooist as he started to ink him.  While some people on the internet feel that the videos Stephen and his brother tape are staged, I begin to wonder if their parents are actually bad parents. Maybe you can help me with this...

In the following video, Stephen is out in the pool area with his parents as they try to teach him how to swim.  After arguing about the importance of swimming, his father pushes him into 4 foot of water where he begins to flap around as if he's drowning.  Once he gets out, he throws a lawn chair at his dad in the pool, curses at them and flips them off. 

As he walks away he yells at his parents, "I'M NOT A FREAKING FISH I DON'T NEED TO SWIM!"

Even if the videos were staged, which I don't know if they are, would you allow your children to act this way?  One commenter on YouTube wrote: "Spoiled Brat....he acts like he's 4 years of age with the tantrums he throws." and another wrote, "i wish dad would smack the shit out of this faggot."

What are your thoughts on today's issue of The Woes of Being a Bad Parent?
