My generation was pretty good at obsessing over boys. Not only did we have Bobby Sherman’s face to decorate our lunch boxes and posters, we also obsessed about all the guys from The Monkees. If you ask any lady who you know who is from my age group, who their favorite Monkee was, you will get many different answers. Each Monkee had their own cuteness about them, and the fans have a favorite for a different reason which does not include just being cute.
The Partridge Family was on TV back in my day, and a lot of my friends thought that David Cassidy was really cute. We didn’t say “hot” back then.
Then there was Donny Osmond,
Little Joe Cartwright from Bonanza, also known as Michael Landon,
and the only reason I ever watched football: Joe Namath.
Maybe I am out of the loop, but it seems like something is not right here. Things change, and maybe it’s better for girls to not have cute guys to watch on fun TV shows. I bet poster sales are way down now from when I was a teen.
