Yesterday I read a column by a woman who is a producer of pornography. Today I read a column by a prostitute. These were both in mainstream British papers.
It strikes me as interesting that in both cases, the byline details were slipped into the columns as if it were as normal as declaring that the sky is blue.
I’m not sure how to wrap up this comment. Perhaps only by saying that we no longer appear to strive toward virtue for the sake of it. I’m not saying these women are any more wicked than you or I–I believe the line between good and evil is drawn in every human heart. But what I am saying is that I feel that perhaps in the past we didn’t put wickedness on display and claim it as virtue.
I suppose I could link to the columns. But I’d rather not lend them further exposure so you’ll have to take my word for it.by
