Mr. Stern’s analysis illustrates well the drawbacks inherent to propping up a jejune and gibbering sex worker as a hero. Yet Rolling Stone never questioned her authenticity, as the radicals who publish that magazine share with Ms. Grey a common political agenda and a common enemy: American society.

Grey and the reporter are as one when it comes to their joint fear that some girl somewhere on our landmass has yet to debauch herself. Their kind won’t rest until every young lady in the country is commemorated in a Girls Gone Wild episode of her own.

As the reporter editorializes:

In the future, Grey might fight many battles against society, but now she is in pursuit of one: the liberation of female sexuality. “I want to tell young women that sex is OK,” she says. “It’s OK to be a slut. You don’t have to be ashamed. People think that young women can’t understand sex, that there will be consequences for our actions, but we can be as analytical as anyone.”

Not if she’s an indication. Fortunately, your average woman has 40 IQ points on this trollop and rank-and-file females intuit that there actually are consequences for one’s actions.

The continued existence of the word “slut” torments feminists though. They would like to see those four letters in succession abrogated from the English language. One feminist at the Huffington Post recently wrote an article linking its use as an insult with teen suicide. She concludes: “No girl deserves to be called a ‘slut.’”

Given the power of political correctness in America, no doubt “slut” will go the way of all the other words we are not allowed to utter. Soon we may refer to it as “the ‘S’ word.”

As with practically every other leftist/feminist position, the crusade against “slut” is total mumbo-jumbo. Rather than outlaw syllables, they should recommend that women live reputable and honorable lives. When they do, fear of character assassination becomes a non-starter.

Behavior and core beliefs correlate. For example, in my case, I don’t want to be known as a moocher, so I pay my debts. I’m fairly certain that many PajamasMedia.com readers do as well.

We take ownership over our lives and realize that the choices we make impact how successful we will be. Similarly, those women who do not want to have their reputations besmirched should sleep around less or at least make sure that cameras are not rolling when they do.

Women operating as autonomous agents won’t satisfy feminists though. Victim is the only role into which they want to see their peers cast. Activists have ruined their own lives and won’t rest until they ruin everyone else’s too.

Sasha Grey is a kamikaze artist with temporary worth. Feminists are only too happy to parade her around before waving goodbye as she melts into the aircraft carrier known as reality. Until then, Ms. Grey will receive hosannas from regressives.

The reporter then mobilizes her sex-for-cash subject as a means to renounce an alleged cultural double standard concerning sex “and the rest of the garbage that allows men to steal power.”

She lectures, “It’s possible that part of Grey’s enjoyment of her lifestyle is a revenge on that system, a renunciation of skewed gender relations meant to make girls weak.”

Some questions immediately arise. First, how exactly is living out the Kama Sutra on a daily basis and contracting venereal diseases “revenge” on anyone except yourself? The writer does not say, but proclamations are all that is needed when it comes to castigating men.

Second, what power have men stolen from women? Currently, women are outperforming men in the recession and are the beneficiaries of perpetual state-sponsored discrimination, a.k.a. affirmative action.

Third, this article features two females who have been showered with more money during their brief careers than anyone this commentator has ever met. Ms. Grey appears to earn around $5,000 per shoot, which is an astronomical rate of pay.

Moreover, the reporter herself was once the recipient of $400,000 in exchange for movie rights to a story she penned for New York magazine. In terms of wealth, both females independently disprove the notion that men are stealing from anyone.

Rolling Stone chose to commemorate Ms. Grey in print, but no words better embody her hollowness than the ones she included in her vocational mission statement: “I am determined and ready to be a commodity that fulfills everyone’s fantasies.”

Mission accomplished! A commodity is precisely what the starlet has chosen to be — although she has yet to fathom that it is now all she ever can be.
