Amidst claims of skirting the issue and producing a show which masquerades as family television while showing and glorifying premarital sex, Secret Life has drawn ire from the likes of the Parents Television Council. However, as I said earlier, I find the show closely resembles the high school experience minus the violence and criminality. No human being has ever gone through those years without thinking about sex or wanting to act on it. Life and the situations therein can’t be swept under the carpet and ignored or they will continue to perpetuate themselves. People complain about MTV’s Teen mom but at least it presents an accurate representation of the trials and tribulations that teen parents face. Instead of running a planned rerun show this past weekend, Saturday Night Live aired an hour-long episode dedicated to the late music icon Prince. Steph Curry has turned himself into a bonafide NBA superstar over the course of the last two seasons. Lenda Asberry, 62, and her four grandchildren were killed this week as they tried to escape a flash flood in the rural town of Palestine, TX.
When a video that featured Nick Young talking about cheating on his fiancee Iggy Azalea surfaced last month courtesy of Young’s own teammate D’Angelo Russell, Iggy was not happy about it. Kid Ink and Pink Dolphin bumped fists and launched the “Alumni” capsule for Summer 2015!
Francia Raisa gets ready to party in her bikini at The Malbu Beach Haus on Saturday afternoon (July 26) in Malibu, Calif. At her party, Francia had a reunion with some The Secret Life of the American Teenager cast members including Daren Kagasoff, DeVaughn Nixon, Marielle Jaffe and Allen Evangelista. Disappointed in what they saw, the girls started an online petition asking that the famous lingerie brand apologize for and amend their campaign. The petition has garnered widespread media attention, reaching 25,000 signatures as of Nov.
The clothing company Ralph Lauren released an online advertisement for its RRL line last month that drew scathing criticism from Native Americans. The ad's imagery harked back to the Old West, with henley jerseys and rustic jeans displayed in faded sepia tones.
Another page depicted a stoic Native American man with dark skin, braided hair and a Western shirt-and-vest combo. Critics charged that the ads reduced people, and indeed entire cultures, to mere marketing props. The episode neatly summed up an issue in fashion and pop culture that has drawn heated debate in recent years. The “cowboys and Indians” movies of the 1950s did much to solidify these tropes in modern American culture, building on centuries of stereotypes. Model Karlie Kloss wearing a Native American headdress during the taping of the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in New York.
Take the war bonnet, a feathered headdress worn by the warriors or leaders of many Native American tribes. Such cliched images are what many Native Americans in the fashion industry want to transcend.
Raised in Montana on the Crow Indian Reservation, Yellowtail wants to bring authenticity to indigenous fashion with her line B.Yellowtail, which will be released in spring. Bethany Yellowtail's "Old style floral elk tooth dress" on the runway at the Santa Fe Indian art market. Patricia Michaels, a 48-year-old Native American fashion designer who appeared on Bravo’s "Project Runway" in 2013, told HuffPost that she doesn't consider it her place to police what people can or can't use in their designs. The famed designer behind his eponymous brand built his fashion empire on images of classic Americana, clothes that evoke the idyllic American dream.


There's a pervasive idea that Native Americans are a thing of the past, said Kim TallBear, a professor of anthropology and Native American and indigenous studies at the University of Texas at Austin. Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians can all be placed in this category, along with The Secret Life Of The American Teenager. However, having seen this show on a few occasions (only when I was seeing a young lady who watched it), I have to say it is the most accurate depiction of the American high school experience I have ever seen on television.
However, the thing that probably really gives parents and critics pause about this show is that it was created by Brenda Hampton, who is also responsible for the popular, long-running series 7th Heaven.
It would seem a great deal of the outraged parents and critics have not been to their children’s high schools. The only difference between older generations and today is that to older generations certain things seem uncouth, so those thoughts were looked down upon, especially if acted upon. If indivduals have a problem with shows that depict real life then they should deal with real life, not entertainment that makes them face it. It presents teen pregnancy as just a minor irritation at the best or a great way to catch a guy at the worst. It doesn’t work out with free childcare and guys fighting over you and everyone being super excited. We still want them to change all of the posters in their stores, apologize and pledge to not use such harmful marketing in the future.
And while one page touted bandanas and “Western-style” shirts, the opposite page showed a Native American sporting a feathered headdress, holding a rifle across his lap. Many people seemingly remain tethered to the idea of a romanticized Old West -- a time of death and carnage for America’s indigenous population. These films mashed up the traditions of countless tribes indiscriminately, often depicting Native Americans as primitive, even bloodthirsty brutes.
Each feather was earned through a sacrifice or an act of valor, making the bonnet a mark of great respect.
Her clothes are modern takes on the classic designs of her culture, adapting the work of her ancestors to the 21st century -- for example, designs based on the beadwork of her great-grandmother, who lived in the 19th century. It should come down to thoughtfulness and taste, she said, adding that if the non-Native American designers who have gotten in trouble in the past had simply collaborated with Native American designers who know the culture, everyone would have benefited. Her “Elk Antler Cape” strives to portray the beauty and grace of indigenous hunters and the animals that give their lives. Many of his brand’s designs succeed in that -- from preppy polos to denim workwear -- and his Navajo prints of the 1980s popularized many indigenous patterns. Lauren himself, though, addressed his love for Native American aesthetics in an interview with the Associated Press last June. His Double RL Ranch in Colorado is chock-full of tents and artifacts, and there's even a decorative vintage photo of a nameless Native American child. The idea that Native Americans no longer exist makes it easier for society to ignore their voices. The show deals with teenagers, parents, sex and high school (which most of us get to know all too well over those tumultuous four years between junior high and the real world). Because that show dealt with the wholesome family of a preacher and how family members dealt with their respective issues and mostly stayed true to their values, many probably expected the same type of show from Hampton this time around. Social media has become a war zone, while the lingerie company continues to catch backlash for their bra line.
We were not notified by Victoria’s Secret or the press about this, we found it out ourselves. At best, indigenous people were depicted as noble savages, piteous characters not yet corrupted by the "civilized" world.
But at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, supermodel Karlie Kloss strode down the catwalk in panties, a skimpy bra and a massive war bonnet-like headdress.


Cultural representations of Native Americans are always focused on the past, she said, as seen in sports franchises like the Cleveland Indians and Washington's NFL team. The main character, Amy Juergens (played by Shailene Woodley), becomes pregnant in the first season and she and her friends end up dealing with the consequences of sex and relationships while still just trying to figure out who they are. Secret Life has the potential to bring things up for discussion so that the proper lessons can be taught and learned (assuming anyone actually watches TV with, talks to, or spends time with their kids anymore). I don’t know what school you went to, but this is hardly typical of the experiences of a high school teen mother. I think instead of hating the show The Secret Life of the American Teenager, parents need to watch it and get serious about talking to their kids about sex. Meanwhile, the real-life meanings attached to certain items, customs and historical figures got distorted or lost, and white Americans, for the most part, neither knew nor cared. Chanel put headdresses on the runway in 2013, and Pharrell Williams donned one on the cover of Elle UK in 2014. A flowing, hand-painted organza skirt symbolizes the years that Michaels' ancestors spent observing and preserving nature.
Those who are offended by this show should deal with the issues addressed instead of changing the channel.
Also, the obsession with sex that these teens have is so stereotypical and overplayed in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE.
Now my daughter is only 4 and I know I have a long way to go but this show has all the questions in mind that I should ask her when she grows up.
The more I watch the more I want to protect my daughter but also know that she is her own person. The new season of The Secret Life of the American Teenager is coming soon and I can’t wait to watch it. Thanks to the cooperation of his staff – Miep Gies, Jo Kleiman, Viktor Kugler and Bep Voskuijl, Otto Frank was able to secretly prepare a hiding place for his family, the Van Pels family and others. They show that the baby daddy will likely NOT be involved, that the mom likely won’t graduate from high school, etc. It was bad enough when it happened with Amy but now the second one is going to get married and have it all work out perfectly. It is free until the end of January with DISH, so get it today so you can have LIVE TV everywhere. I was upstairs by the Van Pels’s in Peter’s room and I was helping him with his schoolwork. The stairs were squeaking, I stood up, because it was still early in the morning and everyone was supposed to be quiet – then the door opened and a man was standing right in front of us with a gun in his hand and it was pointed at us. The man had us walk in front of him and ordered us to go downstairs, and he walked behind us with the pistol. In 1948 the police conducted an initial investigation into the betrayal and arrest of those in hiding.
Early in the morning of 8 August 1944 they were taken to the central train station and from there to the transit camp at Westerbork.
Otto Frank endured several months of heavy labour in one of Auschwitz’s outdoor commandos, before becoming ill.
Friends persuade Otto Frank to publish Anne’s diary, “The Diary of Anne Frank” appears in 1947 under the title “Het Achterhuis” (The Annex).
They settle in Basel, Switzerland, and Otto Frank died in Basel in August 1980, at the age of 91.
