Applauding the Fame Whores

famewhoreYou know what I hate? The word whore. Seriously, it makes my grind my teeth just to see it. To me the word signifies every ounce of separation between the sexes that still exists. What was once used to condemn, is now used as a commonplace word in social interactions. It goes so far beyond the whore vs stud debate, the word itself is defined by Websters as a woman who engages in sexual acts for money. To be fair, the second definition does state a male who engages in sexual acts for money.

We both know that’s not the only time the word whore is used. Anytime a person puts their business out for the world to consume, they’re a whore. Kim Kardashian, has been called a whore because she made a sex tape and capitalized on it. Farrah Abraham had a kid as a teenager, screwed a porn star, and wrote a book, yes by golly, she’s a fame whore. My personal favorite female villain is Kate Gosselin. This woman pops out a bunch of kids at once, and suddenly there is no worse mother on the planet. Her name is synonymous with fame whore.

famequoteStand and behold what we of a society as created. You know why these women are famous? Because we made them that way. So get off your high horse and stop vilifying them. I applaud each of them. I hope they continue to do what works for them until the well of adulation is dried up and the public no longer has an interest in their insane lives.

We as women should not be so quick to judge another on the choices they’ve made with their lives. So she fucked someone in a video. Pretty sure some of the things I’ve done is still illegal in some states. So she puts her business on television for the world to see and is ‘exploiting’ her children. News flash, it takes a heck of a lot of money to raise a kid. They’re clean, well dressed, have a home, and probably access to therapy. They’re fine. I’m poor, a single parent, and raised my kids as best I could and they probably STILL will need therapy.

I’m going to get off my soap box here shortly I promise. Just think about something before I go. Why do you hate them so much? Me? I could totally care less about any of them other than I respect that they’re doing what they need to do in order to make a life for themselves. Beyond that, I wouldn’t know they existed. So kudos to the Kardashian family, to the Gosselin family, heck even to the Dugger family for making a life for themselves with what they were born with.
