While many fans, with good reason mind you, are reeling in the disappointment of Miley's decision to pose for the photos in Vanity Fair, I say, "Thank You, Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus."
Why, you ask?
First, they created an amazing, yet tragic teachable moment with Maddy.
Second, they just saved us a small fortune.
My values are clear. And if you know me, you know I am not afraid to put it out there.
I WILL NOT in good conscience support the career of a girl who talks out of both sides of her mouth.
What happen to all the publicity from the People magazine article that communicated her wholesome values and her grounded disposition? And the interviews in which Billy Ray and Miley prided themselves on the fact that she was going to steer clear of this kind of behavior? Wasn't she going to make it without selling out?
Too bad we'll never get a chance to find out!
Now, after the pictures are published and making headlines, Miley is sorry. She says she learned her lesson. That's convenient.
Well, we have a daughter to raise-a daughter that will not be taught that sex or the use of her body will be the way to success.
She will be raised with self respect and dignity. We will do all we can to insure that when she looks at herself in the mirror she will ALWAYS like what she sees. We will fight society to the death on this. When everyone else is gone and she's alone and the lights are out, Maddy will always like who she's with-herself.
Protected: Everybody’s daughter and her loss.
