Why I’m Glad Daria Didn’t Lose Her Virginity

In 1997, MTV launched a new show called Daria. The show aimed to capture high school through the eyes of a teenage girl, mirroring other popular shows of the decade (My So Called Life, Buffy etc.) which also reflected hormonal, angsty teenage girls as the main protagonists.

The character Daria Morgendorffer, who the show is (obviously) named after, was a character on the popular TV show Beavis and Butthead. Why Beavis and Butthead was popular is beyond me. Every time I’ve tried to watch a segment of this show of gurgling stoners it makes me feel like I’m missing out on the ‘humour.’ Kind of like how I feel watching Two and a Half Men.

Here’s an early appearance of Daria on Beavis and Butthead:

They tried that in the 90′s

My So Called Life stars Claire Danes and Jared Leto, who I used to be in love with but then completely lost interest in after learning that he fronts 30 Seconds to Mars. My So Called Life follows your everyday 15-year-old-girl as she tries to figure out what the hell she’s doing. 

The pilots are both below. While I don’t think either of these shows necessarily have feminist agendas, I think they’re honest. And I always like to give solutions to the problems I complain about so I feel better about 500+ words of whining.
