Kids Say the Damnedest Things: 13-Year-Old Deerfield Student Drops C-Word on Today Show
That's Kayla Manson in her appearance yesterday on NBC's Today Show. At the very end of the video, host Meredith Viera asks the 13-year-old Manson what text messages she saw by Wayne Treacy, the 15-year-old accused of trying to murder Manson's best friend Josie Lou Ratley.
Manson says, "The [text] where she calls him a rapist and she calls him a cunt... I mean, he calls her a cunt."
Isn't it interesting how the national media licks its chops over this story, delighting in every gory detail, only to caution a 13-year-old girl to be "careful about our language"?
Why should she be careful, Meredith? Because there are 13-year-old girls in the audience? There's so much violence and vulgarity in modern American culture, words like cunt are like so many deck chairs on the Titanic.
