Take a dirty picture

What is with people today? It seems like the only way for celebrities to get their dying (or perhaps un-existing) career off and running is to have some kind of a sexual scandal, whether that be a tape or some raunchy cell-phone pictures. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson, and Pamela Anderson have all been made famous by the tapes that were "leaked". Many other celebrities like High School Musical Star Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus, Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, and many other celebrities have been the talk of the town due to released scandalous photos of themselves. Then, after the tape or photos are released, the star immediately issues a huge apology to their fans and insists on pursuing legal action taken against those responsible for the release.

Heres a bold idea --- DON'T DO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE! I mean seriously, there are plenty of ways to be scandalous and not have something like this happen to you. As Reese Witherspoon said in her MTV Generation Award Acceptance Speech: "if you wanna do it, just don't take a picture with your face in it"!

This all brings me to my next point. If you're not a celebrity, AND you're not dating someone, sending them inappropriate pictures is more along the lines of harassment than excitement. One man, who is a frequent bar visitor at my work, seems to have a problem with these guidelines. Not only has he sent a picture to one lady, who I might add has never shown and will probably never show interest in him, he has sent a picture of himself to someone I know well and dear. Why?! This doesn't make you more attractive, and trust me by being creepy like this, you are just eliminating any chance EVER of having anything more than a simple conversation with avoided eye-contact.

So why is this "issue" occurring? It seems as though it's becoming ingrained into society, and this is a problem. Shows like 16 and Pregnant, Teen Mom, and even the music videos and music lyrics we watch and listen to only exacerbate the problem. While we can point fingers at Rihanna for her S&M song, we really need to be pointing the finger at those who have done it and continue to do it, and of course Ke$ha. I blame her. Everything bad happens in a Ke$ha video (just kidding Ke$ha, your songs are those that I love to hate on and then can't help but rock out to on the dance floor). And from there I will leave you with this little gem:
