Whore

Yeah, I said it. From Reuters:

A 22-year-old woman in the United States is publicly auctioning her virginity to pay for her college education, sparking a heated online debate about sex and morality.

There's so much wrong with this story that I don't know where to begin. How about starting with the picture that accompanies the article:


Nice. Thanks for the va-jay-jay shot, Reuters.

Next, let's take a look at the facts as reported:

The woman, who has earned a bachelor degree in women's studies and now wants to start a master's degree in marriage and family therapy, is hoping the bidding will hit $1 million.

Marriage and family therapy? And she's selling her virginity? Yeah, that'll be useful in your future practice.

And a million dollars? Demi Moore got that in a movie, sweetheart. And she was used goods.

La piece de resistance:

The online auction site eBay turned her down so the auction will take place at a Nevada brothel, the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, where her sister is working to pay off her college debts.

Oh, go write your own damned jokes.

Women Studies. Now Marriage and Family?
I recommend she read Kirkegaard;"..Life is not a problem to solved, but a mystery to be lived..."
Nobody appreciates it when I comment on "higher education" and ask, "Higher than what?"

Hmmm. She can probably run for office someday... on family values.
