Am I the only person this bothers?

So I'm overhearing my father's new shows as I walk through the living room, and I hear the (female) anchor say 'A little girl's dream since childhood ...' which makes me immediately think 'Oh, it's one of those human interest stories, like the 'make a wish' foundation or something.'

Wrong. What they were actually talking about? Jenna Bush's wedding. -_-; Yes, getting married is what little girls dream about, they long to become someone's wife, not to attain personal greatness, or accomplish great things, or even be happy--no, their dream is marriage.

Quite possibly I am overreacting, as I sometimes do, but damn did it piss me off.
