The Year of the Trolls: Child Abuse
I am the first person in the world to call a brat a brat. It is not difficult to recognize when a child is being a brat, –an ungrateful brat. But, when trollish parents taint-exploit their children’s memories in order to make a video to post to a trollish show, it is nothing more than child abuse.
Everyone likes to be in on a joke, and everyone likes to feel like they are as cool as a cucumber when the joke is on them. However, conflating un-staged bratty children with manufactured abuse is nothing more than demonstrating how some parents are not mature enough to be parents. Parents can have fun with their children without it being at the expense of the child’s dignity.
For every parent who sets a child up in order to submit to some troll late night blabber-head, you are a fucking troll.
No child enjoys being the butt of adult jokes.
It is so not funny.
