You know what isn't particularly controversial? Fashion photos of Justin Bieber looking like a hip 16-year old, with Kim Kardashian all dolled up behind him. But TV host Bill O'Reilly is offended by said images, because O'Reilly wanted to be a baseball player when he was Bieber's age, he said last night, and that's somehow relevant:
"I wanted to be a baseball player [when I was 16]. I didn't want to hang around with Kim Kardashian ... I had a baseball bat and a bat and [a pair of] ice skates! That's what I was doing."
O'Reilly seems to be implying that if young men aren't solely into baseball (and ice skating? Really?), and they like singing or cavorting with pretty starlets, it's "inappropriate." Because all young men should grow up to be just like him! Republican strategist Margaret Hoover added:
"It's a 16-year-old having an affair with a celebutante! I think it's gross!"
Pretty ladies? Male singers? What has happened to our youth!?
