So get this!. Sarah Palin's reality show, "Sarah Palin's Alaska" has taken some criticism and Willow, Sarah's 16 year old daughter, is not having it. Maybe because she is also on the show and takes it very personally. Well Willow, it is personal. Your family agreed to put their life on television. You need to learn how to deal with the criticism instead of lashing out homophobic slurs.
"Sarah Palin's Alaska, is failing so hard right now." is what a boy wrote on face-book. The boy attended school with the Palin kids. Willow responded back on his wall and said, "Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I've seen pictures of, your disgusting ... My sister had a kid and is still hot."
She also told him he was a "f*gg*t".
I know she is trying to protect her Mom and her own teenage reputation, but is the name calling that necessary? To be honest, I didn't even know she had a reality show until yesterday.
got involved in the face-book war and said, "You'll be as successful as my baby daddy, And actually I do work my ass off. I've been a single mom for the last two years."
Come on kids. You have to be subject to this sort of ridicule, you are all doing a reality show. Did you think everyone would love you? I sure hope not because you would have been mislead.
I truly don't understand Willow's choice of words. Let's break it down a bit, "ha ha your so gay"? "ha ha" would represent, I laugh at you because you insulted me and it does not bother me in the least?. "your"..well Willow even at 16 years of age, you should know it's you're. I always remember this when you can replace it with "you are", if you can, use "you're". "Gay". hmmm...I'm assuming she does not mean happy so obviously in Willow's mind, being Gay is an insult.
"F*gg*t". Really Willow? You had to go there too? I know!, Willow, I have another reality show for you, "You Don't Like Me Because YOU'RE, Gay"
Come on Palin children, can you defend yourselves without attacking a whole group of people? I know you are only 16, but I can't help but believe you are smart enough to know that you put yourself in a position to be criticised. Deal with it!
I found this definition of a Willow in the dictionary. Very interesting. I put in bold some interesting similarities.
Willows, sallows, and osiers form the genus Salix, around 400 species of deciduous trees and shrubs, found primarily on moist soils in cold and temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Most species are known as willow, but some narrow-leaved shrub species are called osier, and some broader-leaved species are referred to as sallow (from Old English sealh, related to the Latin word salix, willow). Some willows (particularly arctic and alpine species) are low-growing or creeping shrubs; for example the Dwarf Willow (Salix herbacea) rarely exceeds 6 cm (2 in) in height, though spreading widely across the ground.
