Why teenagers think adults are out of touch

So, the ABC Family television show The Secret Life Of The American Teenager is almost kind of a guilty pleasure for me, because it is so moralizing and just plain bad. It is impressive levels of bad. All the characters are one-dimensional, the dialogue is forced, and its appeal is based on its sleaziness and then its message about its sleaziness. It's exactly the sort of show that scared parents would want to show their kids as their kids roll their eyes and ignore it. The panic of, "OMG HIGH SCHOOLERS HAVE SEX!" is kind of amazing.

So, X-Files this weekend, wheee. I don't even care about how bad it is/will be.
