I must be getting old...

Last night, I was flipping through channels and found one of my favorite movies of all time "Dirty Dancing". After watching it for a bit, I realized it was on the ABC family channel. I can't remember when I realized that - either during the botched abortion scene or when Johnny says, "I need this goddamn job lined up for next year", or when Baby was running her hand across Johnny's butt before they had sex. I was glad I didn't have kids, because if we were watching the family channel and this movie came on, there'd be lots of questions to answer.

Have we, as society, come so far that this is considered family programming? I must be getting old. Trevor would say that I'm being too sensitive.

I would say you're right, times have changed and it's scary. I notice things like this all of the time. You should have seen how some of the "pre-teens" were dressed for their family vacation in Disney. I could not believe what some of the girls were wearing...and they were with their parents.
