A Snapshot of Celebrity Morals

The next time some celebrity presumes to proclaim a principle as if his or her social status brings with it some sort of moral authority, remind yourself of this story by Hannah Sparks in the New York Post:

The Hollywood EGF Facial — a $650 treatment — involves a cleanse, chemical peel, microneedling, an “electrifying” face mask and a so-called “Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)” — a serum that happens to be derived from the foreskin of Korean newborns. The substance supposedly helps generate collagen and elastin in the skin.

It’s just one of many borderline cannibalistic — and inevitably expensive — beauty products wooing the rich and vain these days.

As the article goes on to indicate (although without expressing it thus), this may be part of a progressively pushed envelope.  The use of human secretions of one form or another has been a skin care strategy in the past, and moved on to the use of placentas and the customer’s own blood.

Along this trend line, utilizing discarded foreskins from other people’s children feels like a new level, in keeping with the use of young people’s blood in anti-aging experiments.  This is a precarious and (yes) slippery slope, and we make a huge mistake in our society when we attribute a higher moral status to precisely the class of people who seem to have the least friction to their soles.

    Just to be clear on the beauty tips from the far-right…facials are bad, natural braiding is good?

    MODERN MORALS – This morning, as I frequently do, I decided to flick through the “Platonic” section of the Craig’s List personals. I have “met” interesting women from all over the world there. Ranging from an Architect in London, a “pet transporter” in San Diego, and a “conspiracy theorist” in Burrillville. I was greeted with the following notice “US Congress just passed HR 1865, “FOSTA”, seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully.”

    While some sections of the “Personals” are obviously geared toward prostitution, I don’t believe I have ever been solicited in the “Platonic” section.

    I seem to recall reading somewhere, that Britain passed some similar law for newspapers. Women began advertising as “Erection & Demolition Contractors”. Somehow, I don’t think the “oldest profession” will be running “red tag” sales.
