Falling really

Read: 'I love being a call girl - I'm in control,' boasts fallen child genius

wtf?*

She went from math genius in University to call girl. How exactly is this “fallen”?

I made a case a while back about reporting actually being editorializing and not true straight-up non-judgement stating of the facts. This is a prime example of a moral media-judgement headline.

Hypocrites, especially, and some others who judge off hand will qualify this girl as “fallen”.

Irate socio-control freaks will also judge this girl to have fallen.

Parents, who only want “their” definition of what’s best for their child, will declare this girl to have fallen.

On the other hand, some will espouse the opinion that she’s making a huge mistake; taking huge risks and whatnot, is out of, well, control… oops, that was already covered above wasn’t it?

And a select few others will be jubilant at her will to take control of her life, regardless of personal foibles, beliefs and moral makeup.

Whether anyone thinks it’s a valid career choice or not, the bottom line is this: she’s making some serious money but more importantly making a living at something she apparently loves doing!

We should all be so lucky.

*Note: wtf ? – is web-speak shorthand, basically an acronym for “what the fuck ?”
