Beyoncé isn’t your child’s parent so stop being outraged

    In an article about possible backlash against “Beyoncé”, Vivienne Pattison of the parent watchdog group, Mediawatch-UK, voiced her displeasure that Beyoncé can no longer be seen as a role model and that children will be able to watch the videos on Youtube. Well, I’m outraged at the outrage! Beyoncé only released an album, she didn’t become our kids’ parents. That’s still our job. I certainly understand being concerned about the creeping sexualization of children but I am concerned that we are becoming a nation of passive parents who whine instead of policing our children’s media consumption.
