comment: why america hates paris hilton

This is a long insightful comment I posted at RealArt the other day. I didn't find anything to really write about so I'm just pasting this to make a new entry. I'm trying to blog more, even though it really shouldn't be a high priority...

I think people truely hate Paris because she's so needlessly rich. If that's true, this hatred doesn't say as much about sexual attitudes as it does about class attitudes.

I think "slut," and "cuntrag" and the like are just dirty words people use to express their anger towards her. Like when Michael Richards called those hecklers 'niggers,' not because he was racist but because it was sure to get them to shut up and leave (and they surely did). He was pissed (and I admit, out of line) so he used [the] most offensive word possible to piss them off too, not because he had anything against their ethnicity.

Not to say that sexism isn't a problem, I just don't think this gleeful reception of Hilton's incarceration is a text book example. There's more to it than sexuality, it's about money. After all, her money is why she's famous in the first place.

I've actually come to disagree with what I wrote, but it's still a valid argument I guess.
