Wednesday's Comment Call-out: More on selling virginity

Well, here it is. One of the scathing comments that lacks any resemblance to decent, human concern for each other.

"I think the oddest part of all this is something that people rarely seem to comment on in all the attention that stories like this seem to generate:

'I'm a 22-year-old woman who recently earned her Bachelor's Degree in Women's Studies, and soon I'll be entering a Masters Degree program in Marriage and Family Therapy.'

Four years of your life have been devoted to 'Women's Studies,' and this is the best you can do? This is what you've learned in four years - to sell your ass? And you're proud of yourself for having the idea? You think that with publicity like what you've had, that you're ever going to find a job in 'Marriage and Family Therapy' anywhere? Nobody who wants to run a reputable clinic is going to touch you with a ten-foot pole.

'Hi, Mr. & Mrs. Jones. We've set you up with one of our newest therapists. You may remember her as having been the woman who sold her virginity on the internets. She'll get you both fixed right up.'

While it's laughable (and beyond ironic)to see what feminism has degraded into over the last ten or twenty years, it's still sad to see people who trumpet themselves as educated wallow in prostitution and call it feminine oriented capitalism.

I weep for you and those like you."

No you don't. You love passing judgment! "Internets," by the way, is not my misspelling. Once again, I can't get over how vindictive people are to those who don't share the same views. The commentator basically wishes Natalie Dylan ill. I don't think she'll have any trouble getting a job. Natalie Dylan has to be a pretty common name, and I'm guessing she's not going to put "sold my virginity" on her resume. And I'm guessing most employers don't have a wanted poster with her photo on it behind the desk. If you're wondering where feminism is today, it's not degraded - nor is it a pillar of puritanism. It's an ideology that probably leads the employers Dylan will apply for jobs with to believe in her prerogative to do what she deems right for herself.
