So someone named Perez Hilton (related to Paris? no idea) has got hisself in a little spot o’ trouble for blogging a (now removed) photo of Miley Cyrus that may or may not show her in a panties-less state.  There’s speculation this could generate a child pornography charge for Hilton.

There’s all sorts of “anger and recrimination” about this heinous “crime,” which is far beyond absurd.  Folks, let’s please not pretend that a revealing photograph of slutted-up, 17.5616438-year-old Miley Cyrus is morally equivalent to the same shot of a prepubescent child.

The legal line has to be somewhere, and I suppose 18 years old is reasonable enough.  But is it just too much to ask that we scale our bluster accordingly?  Hey, guess what?  Attractive 17-year-old girls in revealing clothing are sexually arousing.  There’s no more shame in that than in any other hormonally-generated biological truth.

We feverishly manufacture nonsense like this.  Of that I am satisfied.  Do we do it just so we can bleat about how appalled we are?

  1. A few things:
    Perez Hilton…runs TMZ…did the “for shame” question during the Miss America pageant that caused all the bruhaha last year?
    Also, Perez Hilton is gay as dick’s hat band. He makes his living off of celeb gossip…he’s not turned on by Miley or any chick’s crotch.
    And I agree with the rest of it…if there’s any shock, it’s that her parents do not see that she’s teetering on the brink of the Lindsay Lohan cliff. She was once a cute, charming Disney channel star too.

  2. Yeah, I had hopes that she would make the transition into young adult woman with a little more grace. Nope. She seems bent on showing the world her inner tart. Don’t get me wrong, I understand her wanting to shed some of the little girl image but I hoped she wouldn’t be in such a rush or quite so…um… transparent… about it. As for all the upset,if you are a celeb being pursued by the media then wear your underwear. If you don’t, then plan on them catching you with your pants down at some point. DUH!

  3. I meant to mention that factor, and forgot. The show Hannah Montana was/is really sickeningly sugarlicious, but it was wholesome and innocent. It is a shame to see such an obviously talented and intelligent young lady in a steep dive to Slutsville. Even if she did it eventually, you know, sheez, there’s so much time for that. Come on, Miley. Come on, Miley’s parents.

  4. I agree with Lea. It’s kind of along the same lines as a comment I made on my blog about all these celebrity sex tapes that are out there – “if you don’t want people to be able to watch your fucking, don’t film your fucking.”

    It seems that most of these “starlets” are running with the philosophy of “any publicity is good publicity,” so let’s go out in public without any underwear on, let’s make a sex tape, let’s get caught sunbathing topless, let’s drive around with our infant son in our lap, etc., etc., etc…

  5. I’m not even sure I blame her parents on this one. Even if they were around when she left the house, they probably didn’t think to ask their almost adult daughter if she remembered to put on her underwear.

  6. Ummm, her dad ruled the frickin world for like a three months with “Achy-Breaky Heart” and popularized the mullet. I might be going commando too.

    Her standee in Wal-Mart with the vaguely skankalicious fashion does make me feel funny like I left the cell phone on vibrate or something.
