Which is which?

And from whose perspective is this written - hers or his?

They're just two different views - not his or hers.

1. It is utterly reprehensible to use your children--who cannot consent--to promote yourself. Today's "reality TV" format, and society-at-large's approval of same, were clearly part of it, but it was Jon & Kate who willingly sacrificed their family for "fame."

2. From what I hear (never having watched the show myself), Kate is an exemplar of what you get when a society takes the noxious tenets of feminism seriously: she is a shrewish harpy who constantly belittles and emasculates her husband--on national TV, no less. He bore her abuse stoically until he could bear no more. Their marriage would have ended regardless of the show; being on TV probably hastened its demise.

3. Neither one of them is even one-one hundredth as objectionable as the execrable Octomom.
