A lot of what is written online about the Gosselins, pro and con, is extremely trivial in nature. There are those that claim to be concerned about the Gosselin children but spend a lot of their online time engaging in discussions about Kate's appearance, Jon's testicles, and every aspect of the Gosselins' parenting style. And that's before you even get to the rumors.
While all those things may be entertaining and interesting to talk and read about, even I, a fairly pro-Gosselin poster, agree that there are real issues worthy of discussion at the heart of Jon & Kate Plus Eight. I'd like this to be a jumping off point for a hopefully thoughtful and civil discussion that does not focus on the petty issues, assigning blame or castigating anyone. What we'd like to hear is from you is this: do you think the Gosselin children are being exploited? Why or why not?
