Best thing to come out of "Eliot's Mess": New York's first black and legally blind Lt. Governor David Patterson succeeding him and riffing off a ludicrous question about if he'd been with any prostitutes. "Only the lobbyists," he said.
Worst thing to come out of "Eliot's Mess": Everyone assuming the "whore" was happy about it.
Because the press was so caught up in the "glamor" and "exoticism" of high-end prostitution they'd all decided that "Kristen" must love this and will use this to get paid and get lots of book deals and even a recording contract since that was her original goal when she came to the city.
So they raided her MySpace page and splashed it up there in the press as if anything on the MySpace page was related to the Spitzer case. They splashed her pictures everywhere and her real name and thought nothing of the fact that she would not grant interviews and would not talk to the press.
Gee. That almost seems like she didn't want people to know she was prostitute!
I don't care how many ways you wrap it, if you're a prostitute you don't want people to know you're a prostitute. Hence the fake names and the secrecy. Plus, whether you're a stripper, porn actress or a prostitute you get some heavy baggage attached to you. Our society isn't that enlightened. That's why there's no shame in this reporting. She's a "whore," she's already exploiting herself so it's OK for us to exploit her. She asked for it. She wants it. So we HAVE to put her topless photo on the cover of The Post.
It doesn't matter if you're a "high end call girl." High end call girls don't tell their parents they're having sex for money. They don't tell the guys they date. They don't tell any co-workers, current or former. They don't tell the folks they went to high school with. They don't tell their siblings or grandparents. They might not even tell their friends.
Women who sell their bodies for sex, no matter how much money they make, have issues. Usually horrible deep seeded, self-loathing, destructive issues. (See: Karrine Steffans)
If "Kristen" wanted the fame of being attached to a horny New York governor she would have narced on him for the loot a long time ago. She would have sold her story to the New York tabloids who are quoting her MySpace page, which strangely enough, is not about being a whore!
So in defense of the woman everyone assumes is happy about this even though no one has talked to her, only hitting up her MySpace page and chatting with some opportunistic, shady, alleged "friends," just slag off already. In prostitution cases usually the only who gets punished is the woman. Maybe she's afraid of being prosecuted or forced to testify. Maybe she thought she could just be a call girl on the side to make some bank then get out of it, pretending like the whole "whore" thing never happened.
Oh well! Thanks media! Good to know that all the women in the Spitzer prostitute saga are victims and "OK" with it. After all, every little girl wants to grow up and have possibly dangerous, unsafe sex with a horny politician who reduces you to your vagina and only your vagina. No big! I bet it was fun to have to talk Eliot out of whatever crazy ass "unsafe" thing he wanted to do. And I bet there's no blow back AT ALL about being outed as a prostitute. I'm sure the people who know her will continue to treat her the same as when she was just a girl with a demo tape and a MySpace page.
