In Odder News: Pedophilia Is Now Sought After (Apparently)...

Reportedly, Lifestyles condoms has made a one million dollar (and as many of their products as you can use in a lifetime) offer to teen star Miley Cyrus if she agrees to become their new spokeswoman. Ignoring the fact that Miley has vowed to stay a virgin until marriage (because let's face it, Britney made the same promise and ignored her own), Lifestyles feels she could have a great influence in teaching the young girls who look up to her that if you're going to have sex, you need to do it safely and responsibly. WTF???

Okay, look: I know kids today deal with sex at an increasingly younger age, but do we really want a freakin' fifteen-year-old being the face of a condom? Isn't that just a little creepy for anyone over the legal age? And what does that say, then, about Lifestyles: doesn't it seem like they are targeting the young'uns by picking their idol and saying "she thinks these are cool, so should you?"

I'm literally sitting here with my jaw dropped. I hadn't heard this at all. I suppose the theory is if they are going to do it anyway, do it safely. But really? A 15 year old? Ick.

Yeah kids lose their virginities really young, and most of the time they're too young to be smart about it, but what bothers me about this whole thing is that they're advertising directly to those young kids by having one of their pop idols peddle the product.
