I think TLC, short for “the learning channel,” used to house less disturbing shows. Currently it is the home to Sarah Palin’s Alaska, Sister Wives, I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant and Toddlers & Tiaras. A new show has graced TLC’s new program listings – Virgin Diaries.
It’s not hard to believe that the people in a show about abstinence before marriage and even a couple who had never kissed before their wedding are virgins. They all have a certain look to them, not like they’re hideously ugly but you can sense their lack of social skills from about 10 miles away.
Weird hairlines and foreheads don’t help either. I mean, they kind of all look like polygamists, or Southern choir boys or exactly what they are, devout Christians who blindly follow rules because they’re not individuals. They’re sexless sheep who kiss like Hannibal Lecter’s retarded hungry cousin.
