I heart BH 90210

So I was watching an old episode of Beverly Hills 90210 last night. Anyone who knows me knows that this is my all time favorite show!!!!!!!!!!! When I was younger I was obsessed with it. I wanted to marry Luke Perry so bad. My walls were covered with his posters. I even wrote him a letter when I was about 12 and got sent one of those autographed pictures. I heart 90210!

Ok well to my point. Last night I was watching an episode from the first season. The Walshs had just moved to BH and didn't know many people. In this episode Brandon's old girlfriend from Minnisota came to visit. It was made clear that they had never had sex before, but that Brandon really wanted to...he was a virgin.

So in this episode his ex girlfriend Sheryl stays in Brenda's room...but in the middle of the night goes into Brandons room to get it on. Well the scene shows the parents bedroom and the Mrs Walsh is awake worried and upset because she doesnt know what they are doing. She wakes up Mr. Walsh and he basically just says "Let him have his fun i'll talk to him in the morning' ...in so many words. The mother just lays back and says 'i guess so'.

So the next morning Brandon is blasting music and clearly overly happy being that he just had sex for the first time. It shows his parents laying in bed smiling and the mother says 'you need to talk to your son".

Ok so in the end of the show the dad finally talks to Brandon. Brandon just looks at his dad and saying 'tell mom i'm being careful'....and the convo is over.
I don't think over all the years I've been obsessed with this show I ever realized how hypocritical it is.

For those that know the show, you know that when Brenda has sex for the first time Mr. Walsh flips out and forbids her to ever see Dylan again. She gets grounded and locked in the house. WTF?

Moral of the story, if you're a guy you can do whatever you want, if you're a girl you get treated like an idiot or slut.

I now question why my parents ever let me watch this show lol It's a horrible message for a young girl.

I totally get where your coming from. Chris always says to me well if we had a girl it would be diff about waiting to get married to have sex. If its the boys then its ok. Um no its not it's the same thing!
