However, her interests follow the audiences’ conception of a girl in her teens: horses, boys, boys and horses. Tina’s fascination with boys is given a lot of room in the show, as is her appreciation of butts. In the episode “Boyz 4 Now” Tina goes to a boy band’s concert and unlike Louise, she wholly enjoys her time there.

Many of us have a role model we look up. A role model can be anybody, ranging from “famous” individuals, fictional characters, to “ordinary” people. One thing they do have in common is their influence on the lives of young people. In Carl T.
