I'm not a big fan of Slate, but this would be a laugh riot if it weren't so sad. What makes it so sad is that so many little girls look at LL as if she is some kind of role model. And parents don't discourage them from doing so. What is wrong with parents these days????
You know who I compare these parents to? The man in Judges chapter 19 who told the sons of Belial not to abuse the Levite, but to take the Levite's concubine. The sons of Belial then proceeded to basically rape her to death all night. That's exactly what these parents are doing. They are offering up their children to be abused by the sons of Belial for their own enjoyment. And it ain't gonna get any better!
