I didn't see the Academy Awards this year, and in previous years I have become increasingly uninterested about the whole thing. I used to like to watch the red carpet coverage because I love fashion, but this year that didn't even interest me. I am sort of glad I didn't see it, but then again there was a scuttlebutt about the "I Have Seen You Boobs" song that Seth McFarlane performed which made me sort of glad I didn't watch. From what I have read, it would have made me angry.
As a woman I have always been very concerned about the sexual culture in our country. Seeing a woman's breasts is always such an outcry whether it is for the natural act of feeding one's child or for sexual stimulation. As the linked article states, we do not have a healthy culture and therefore any mention of a sexually charged event causes such a commotion.
I personally feel the whole thing was in bad taste, but then again most of what Seth McFarlane does is in bad taste. I do not really find his animated cartoons amusing but then again I don't really watch them that much. The bottom line is until the US takes a healthier view of ourselves and our bodies these kind of sophomoric attempts at humor will spark controversy.
