I am a huge fan of both New Kids On The Block and the Backstreet Boys. Their combined tour this summer is something that is very exciting to my friends and I. My husband does make fun of me for loving them, but I really could care less. He told me this morning that I should read your article in The Punch List of his current GQ Magazine. It made me so angry that I had to respond. First of all, I am not some nerdy moron that spends time in chat rooms. I wasn’t a cheerleader, nor do I collect Beanie Babies. I am a 32 year old mother of a 2 year old. I have a happy marriage and a ton of friends…I live a very happy and fulfilled life. Most men would find me attractive (blond highlights, size double zero waist (even after having a baby), and big boobs. I am not bragging and hate to go there, but I can see what type of picture you are building of fans of these groups. How about I judge you…are you some “artsy writer” that sits at Starbucks all day and blogs. Maybe you write poetry and wear all black. Maybe you listen to music where people scream into the microphone. How does it feel to be judged? So what that we like music where they sing beautiful ballads or songs that make you want to dance. Lamest concert tour …please…you are the lamest writer. Grow some respect for other people..especially fellow woman because you know most of their fans are.
