    Eep, I'm not usually one to cry for a trigger warning, but that article definitely needs one. Can you add one in?
    Those poor girls. That song is repulsive in light of reading what's going on over there.

    Ok yeah I put one in. Didn't think about it but the article *is* quite graphic.

    That's for sharing Betty. This article is disturbing and absolutely reinforces that this is not just a song. It has a larger impact and this culture is so very alarming.

    I really don't think these sort of petitions actually get anything done (not that I watch or even care what Channel 7 does). It's gotten to the point where I'm pretty sure we'll all forget about this travesty of a song and then get all fired up next time someone releases another controversial song.

    Maybe I'm just jaded and blah?
