A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

The site places a somewhat alarming emphasis on body image -- with both positive and negative comments about women's bodies -- and also features a sarcastic, slightly judgmental (albeit funny) tone.

Violence
Sex
Language

References to swear words are somewhat censored -- written words like f--k are used, and in one video, the phrase "bulls--t" is bleeped out.

Consumerism

A site store hocks clothing and accessories; a bottled water ad on the site features two of the characters.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Characters joke about drinking and using prescription medication.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this entertainment site does not screen the messages users post in response to the site's video and blog entries -- anything goes. Also, the recommended blogs listed on the site homepage are not all kid-friendly. Some are blogs about dating and celebrity gossip that feature adult humor.

What's it about?

The centerpiece of BLAH GIRLS is an animated Web series -- which is sponsored in part by actor Ashton Kutcher -- featuring cartoon characters that poke fun at pop culture icons and events. Users can comment on the site's celeb-focused daily blog entries or zany videos, which are posted about twice a week. Visitors can ask the Blah Girls questions about relationships, gossip, life, and fashion. They respond with chipper snippets like \"If you're not sure how [your boyfriend] feels about you, poke him!\"

Is it any good?

Celeb gossip fans will find plenty of fun things to watch and read. The slightly sarcastic content is clever, the celebrity gossip is frequently updated, and the site's videos are hilarious. However, the Blah Girls definitely weren't designed for younger users. There's some questionable language on the site -- one video segment, Stewart's Hot Minute, often opens with the character crying out "Hey bitches!" The site also could send some mixed body image messages to teen girls: One star is criticized for being too thin, while another is complimented for having a doll-like waist. The verdict? Older teens may get a kick out of the Blah Girls' comical content -- but it's probably best to steer younger viewers elsewhere.
