There’s two types people in this world. Hang on, isn’t that line from one of Britney’s songs? That’s a worrying start. Actually, no, it’s perfect for the statement I’m about to make. “There’s two types of people in this world, those that watch Maury Povich, and those that don’t.”
Sure the one’s that do, won’t always admit that they do, as it’s kind of up there on the ‘white trash things to do” during the day. And the one’s that don’t, usually have never heard of the show, or if they have, they’ll probably sincerely wonder how you ever became friends.
Back to those that do. Yes, me. Now, I will say that I watch a lot of crap TV because I just happen to be rather fascinated by people. Even people with two heads, and with vocabs that stretch to “Don’t be hatin’”, “Don’t be hatin”, and so on……
But I am here to point out, that there is a serious sexist injustice going on with Maury Povich’s show. See if you’ve never seen the ‘poor man’s Jerry Springer show’, he’s real big on THE DNA TEST WILL PROVE THAT’S NOT MY KID.
So, you get these screaming, or constantly crying ex couples that come on the show, to prove or disprove that the child is the bloke in questions’.
It’s the same for literally every couple. He claims she’s a slut. She claims she did everything for him, and he knows damn well that the child is his. Note: the fake crying on this show is magic.
As I’m watching it now, Claudia is waiting (with her mum, who is crying…no tears) for Doug to come out to find out if the DNA tests prove that Cheyanne is his child.
Now, what’s fascinating about this particular case…..is that Claudia is 150% positive that Cheyanne is his child. So is mum. Doug, even hopes she is too.
But EXCUSE ME………………CLAUDIA, this is YOUR 3rd time on the show. The previous two blokes, that she was 100% sure about, weren’t the fathers.
Drum roll……………Doug, is NOT the father!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mum bursts into more invisible tears (face scrunched tighter for those trying this at home) – Claudia drops to the ground in more shock (you’d think she’d be getting used to this), and poor old Doug. Well, he was a little bit of a sad sack before this earth shattering news.
It’s about this time that someone really should be using Maury’s audience to collect money in a hat for little Cheyanne’s counselling. Although, that’s one big hat required.
So, SEXIST PART of this show is. As soon as the guys come out, not in Doug’s case, but most others, and dispute that the child is his cause Keisha or whatever her name has slept with every man in town….standard……the crowd goes off their head, and crucifying the creep before the results even come out.
But when, as is often the case, the results prove that the mother was a tiny bit busier in the bedroom than she’s trying to claim, the crowd screams, but then follows with “arrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhh” which means, “oh dear, the poor love”.
Poor love???? She’s been accusing some poor bloke that a child that isn’t his, is his. She’s been defaming him all over town and all over the world (thanks to Maury’s show), and rather than cop an earful from the crowd, or Maury, everyone keeps in what they’re thinking, which is “you lying @$@!”, and Maury races after her comforting her as if she’s the victim.
How’s she the victim? It’s sexism at it’s not so finest. But really, Go on the show, Get it Wrong, and the judgment should be divvyed up a little more fairly.
Maury time to use the Naught Girl Chair for these girls with forgetful memories.
