Quotables: Just Because You Can Give Parenting Advice Doesn't Mean You Should

"She's a very good example. As much as we think she's crazy, I think she's a good example. Let's not be so trapped in a box. I'm going to teach my daughter that way: be who you want to be. Society's going to put these rules on you but if you have this feeling that you need to do whatever it is, do it."
--Kendra Wilkinson on Miley Cyrus being a role model for young women growing up in today's world, and may I remind you that Kendra Wilkinson -- Kendra Wilkinson who is only famous for being in Playboy and Hugh Hefner's girlfriend -- made a living on her back from day one. Kendra Wilkinson never had to do one single iota of actual work other than Be Hot, and yet she's saying it's OK for Miley to push her overt sexuality onto young, impressionable women.
Kendra's right, in a sense, about not letting society tell you what to do. She's got a fair point there. Don't conform and all that -- got it.
But when society is telling you to keep your damn pants on so you don't encourage little girls in thinking it's OK to walk around with pieces of your vulva hanging out at young ages, society is the one who has the fair point there.
When society is telling you to keep your damn tongue in your mouth and brush it often so you don't end up with oral thrush, society is also the one, again, who has the fair point there.
Last, when society is telling you to quit singing about drugs and black-out nights at the club because that's not the way to become a real, actual, non-celebrity adult, you might want to listen up -- again, because it looks like society has the fair point there.
Kendra 1, Society 3 ... and more.
