SPECIES: The Virgin (Sexus Nontilnuptials)

PREDATOR: The Media (Sexus Perpetual Obsessicus)

METHOD OF ATTACK: Exploitation and Extinction

Peer through a leafy curtain deep in the Amazon and you might just catch a glimpse of an elusive specimen: “the virgin.”

Though rare, this foreign species manages to survive in some of the world’s most hostile ecosystems, constantly threatened by its natural enemy, the media. The media preys upon virgins for profit and mere entertainment – to dismiss them as soon as they conform.

For those who predict the coming collapse of Western civilization, there’s always MTV for proof. At this year's Television Critics Association summer tour in Hollywood, MTV put on a panel discussion for the press with the cast and creators of a forthcoming series called "Happyland." The female star of the show, actress Bianca Santos, announced the new MTV motto: “Incest is hot, and we’re going to have fun!”

Lisa de Moraes at the Deadline Hollywood website reported the pilot episode of this “soapy teen comedy" -- remember that: this is a show for teenagers -- this show "exploring the underbelly of a popular theme park” includes a clip of Santos making out with the amusement park’s “new hottie,” only to discover... he’s her brother.

Is NBC crazy? In this day and age, it takes real chutzpa to develop a “provocative drama set against the backdrop of a prominent Michigan mosque where faith, family and corruption are explored in equal measure.” Wait, back that up. Replace “Michigan mosque” with “Texas church.” Now that makes sense.

Perhaps operating on the theory that pop culture just doesn’t do enough to stick it to Christians, NBC has green lighted “Salvation.” According to the Hollywood Reporter, “the pilot centers on Jennifer Strickland (Judd), who has to defend her children, church and religious beliefs after her husband dies under mysterious circumstances.” But since it stars erstwhile Democratic senate hopeful and moonbat liberal Ashley Judd, and its executive producer, David Janollari, was formerly the head of programming for MTV, its hard to imagine the show going to the barricades for “religious beliefs.”

Let's assess the winners in losers in American culture for 2013. Our first obvious winner is "Duck Dynasty" and its Phil Robertson. He's a winner for standing by his Christian principles after some inartful remarks about homosexuality.

A&E suspended him and put the usual statement that they are "champions" of the gay agenda -- and proceeded to start running "Duck Dynasty" marathons. Mark Steyn put it just right: the gay-left blacklisters insist "espousing conventional Christian morality, even off-air, is incompatible with American celebrity." Robertson has successfully shattered intolerance of the anti-Christian left.

No one has appreciated, encouraged, perhaps even plotted Miley Cyrus making a clown out of herself more than MTV. So they posted this little Thank You card on their Buzzworthy blog when it was reported that she was beat at the last minute in Time’s “Person of the Year” polling by two Middle Eastern politicians. (This poll has zero integrity.)

MTV's Rachel Brodsky oozed that the former Disney Channel child star's third-place finish was “something to be VERY, very proud of, but... but... SHE DESERVED IT SO MUCH....Needless to say, we were really, really pulling for Miley. But such is life! She'll always be OUR Person Of The Year!” So they made a list of all the reasons she deserved it, mostly for acting out:

The tawdry sexual dancing of Miley Cyrus on the 2013 edition of MTV’s Video Music Awards has been denounced by nearly everyone – conservatives, liberals, and libertines (who flunked it for lacking “hotness"). That theme is exhausted. Let’s shift the discussion back to where it belongs: the cultural cesspool that is MTV.

Every year, MTV prepares sleazy awards-show stunts like this to acquire buzz for itself. There’s Madonna and Britney Spears having a long onstage kiss; Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis grabbing each other’s private parts on stage; and Sacha Baron Cohen “accidentally” hanging upside down with his bare buttocks exposed right in the face of the rapper Eminem.

Editor’s note: the video after the jump may offend some people.

Dear Miley Cyrus: We get it already. You’re not a kid anymore. That Teddy Bear-to-porn maven motif at the 2013 MTV VMAs was so unsubtle even the kind of people who like the VMAs couldn’t miss it. Ditto the latex bikini and relentless “twerking.” Besides, you’re belaboring the point. It’s been abundantly clear for some time you killed Hannah Montana and you’re pole-dancing on her grave.

But maybe you could dial back the porn factor just a touch? Sure, masturbating yourself and Robin Thicke with a foam #1 finger shocked Will Smith & co. in the immediacy of the moment.

MTV is always crossing the boundaries of taste to build a “buzz” around their youth-oriented shows. On Tuesday night's episode of their “reality” show "Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life," the sleazy pop singer decided to urinate into a plastic bottle in front of her friends on a car trip and take a sip. "It was really gross," this genius concluded.

This could just a faked-for-ratings stunt. But our friends at the Parents Television Council found this was a singularly disgusting lesson of why consumers should get a choice of cable channels, so they can dump MTV and stop subsizing the pee-drinking sleaze:

What’s more embarrassing, hateful, ignorant and racist than a “right-winger”? Not much, according to MTV. The youth oriented network’s reality show “True Life” ran an episode called I hate the government last Friday which detailed the lives of three “right-wingers.”

The episode description reads: “Amelia, Caleb and Andrew are three right-wingers who despise the very thing that holds our country together, the U.S. government.”

Appearing on the Conan O'Brien show on Wednesday night, talk show host Chelsea Handler started laughing at the most inopportune time. Judging by the somber look on O'Brien's face, the comedienne hadn't just cracked a joke. No, the unfortunate reason for her giggling was in remembrance of a child who was deprived the chance to live. 

Asked to recollect her adolescence, Handler couldn't resist oversharing. Her rebellious lifestyle resulted in an unplanned pregnancy as a teenager, but apparently there was nothing to think twice about. That's when the laughing started. She tried to stop herself, admitting the subject wasn't funny. Yet she continued, trying to justify the humor of her abortion by saying her baby would've been biracial.

MTV really wants young people to head to the voting booth in droves. This would be a good thing if MTV execs didn’t blatantly schill for lefty ideology in their new “Power of 12” promo.

The new get-out-the-vote ad aired at the 2012 Video Music Awards, and hawked the slogan the “power of 45 million young people will decide the outcome of the 2012 election.” It featured a series of images projected behind one-word statements such as “Patriotism,” “Movement,” and “Marriage.”
