Lohan: Talk to the middle fingernail

“Lindsay Lohan may have come with a message for the Los Angeles Superior Court when she appeared for her probation revocation hearing on Tuesday, and it could spell more jail time on top of her three-month sentence. Lohan, who was sentenced to 90 days in prison and 90 days in an in-patient rehabilitation facility for violating the terms of her probation, appeared in court with the words "f*ck u" printed on her middle fingernail.”

LaPenta: Talk to the T-shirt
Related Link » Brazen P*ssy
“I think there is a lot to be learned from this incident, just the latest in a seemingly relentless breakdown of civilized behavior in our society. First, consider this young woman's defensive remark: "They should be out looking for people who are breaking the law, not arresting someone wearing a T-shirt". The "they" refers to Judge Rozenberg. Aside from the grammatical error in pronoun number, it most definitely is not a judge's role to "be out looking for people who are breaking the law". A judge is the presiding officer in her courtroom, and it is most definitely her role to judge the behavior of anyone who is present there. Moreover, Ms. LaPenta was not arrested for "wearing a T-shirt", but for the crude remark printed on it, which the judge deemed to be contemptible in her courtroom. Furthermore, Ms. LaPenta's brazen offer to remove her shirt, thereby exposing her undergarments, if any, compounded her offence.”

The slutification of young women is alive and well in America, much to the gratification of many men, though to the chagrin of most fathers and grandfathers of young girls. What puzzles me, however, is what the young women themselves hope to gain by it, besides temporary notoriety and permanent contempt — of court, and of potential courters.


This adaptation really is a good idea!      h/t Theo
