icarly has been getting on my nerves in some ways lately
i'm just going to point out the main example of what has irked me on the show
ok whenever they show a guy carly likes, he's like madd tall and looks about 19, which is annoying on its own
but freddy, a guy who is normal height.. a guy who is considered "nice" and a guy who is carly's age shows a lot of interest in her
she always turns him down
and that's ok, i mean if she doesn't like him then she doesn't like him
but what really got on my nerves was on one episode she told freddy she liked "bad boys"
now.. does this happen in real life? YES.. i know because i'm a "nice guy" and it happens to me all the time.. women like men with no self control, or men who are unpredictable, or men with a violent side, or a criminal record.. women will give their best to a man who is undeserving of it and give their worst to a man who deserves their best
so yes, there is truth in that episode of icarly
but my problem with it is.. think of what this is saying to the youth.. the people who just watch icarly and imitate what they see because "art imitates life and life imitates art"
like for girls, they may want to be like icarly and so they will be looking to talk to the kid at their school who just got back from juvy.. the one who is a 2nd yr high school senior and ish.. simply because icarly likes guys who look so much older than her and "bad boys"
i mean come on nickelodeon show some responsibility here
then look at the little boys.. i happen to think freddy is a great guy.. he loves carly, he doesn't play games, he's intelligent, he's responsible.. but he gets shat on ALL THE TIME!
almost everything guys do that's positive is for women.. to impress them or attract them
so say ur some kid watching that.. and u identify with freddy and u think carly is cute too.. but then u see that she dismisses freddy by saying "i like bad boys"
think about how that will affect u
even on the show freddy was trying to find ways to be bad.. and it was humorous.. but in real life its not going to be funny
kids are going to associate bad things like drinking and drugs and sex with being cool and desirable.. which could turn a good responsible boy into a mere shadow of his former self
we lose enough men to iraq, now we gotta lose our young men to icarly too!?
its just very irresponsible of nickelodeon to have carly say something like that
"i like bad boys" smh.. so ridiculous.. i mean i could see a statement like that being made on "sex in the city" ..but icarly!? ..and i've noticed other unsettling things since that episode, but i guess u could say that was the main thing that bothered me
another thing that bothers me is.. why do fat or chubby kids always have to have to be the ones who are laughed at or the ones who are undesirable?
it was the same in drake and josh, the fat one was uncool
and now in icarly i noticed on one episode they were so surprised gibby had a pretty girlfriend.. why? he's a good guy.. i guess because he's chubby they don't expect him to have a nice girlfriend.. am i overthinking it? or are they selling superficiality and unhealthy worldly outlooks to kids?
i'm not saying i won't ever watch it again, but iono.. in some places they should be more responsible.. and i hope (whoever's reading this) if u have kids, u teach them that tv is tv and not necessarily an example of how people should think and act in society
