Apparently the answer is yes, and she’s disappointed that things haven’t worked out quite the way she expected. The Sad Lesson of a Former ‘Fame Whore’ (Or, Why Slut-Shaming Is a Good Thing).
Fiction – and especially absurdist comedy – is not supposed to be a life map.
This, and is noted in the link above, is a case of internet fame going completely wrong.
“Easy come, easy go,” as they say, and Julia Baugher was notoriously easy. The young carousel riders never seem to figure out why promiscuity is a bad bet until it’s too late to retrieve their lost fortunes. Youth is a valuable commodity, and racking up a long list of ex-boyfriends (e.g., Men’s Health editor Dave Zinczenko, tech entrepreneur Jakob Lodwick) is not the smart way to invest such an asset. Feminists who rant against “slut-shaming” are like carnival barkers for sexual dysfunction. There is a reason why sluts are shamed, after all, because promiscuous young women are the supply of “free milk” that makes men reluctant to buy cows, as the old adage goes. Why should a tech entrepreneur or a magazine editor in New York City find a nice girl and get married, when every spring brings a new crop of 23-year-old hotties to town, eager to make the same kind of foolish mistakes young Julia Baugher made?
And she didn’t just try to live the life of SATC. She wrote a sex column at Georgetown University. And then for supermarket tabloid The Star. Things look a bit different of course from the far side of 30.
Now of course Ms. Baugher is confused as to why she can’t seem to find a husband, and start a family. Even after 8 years of trying to trap someone. That is a fairly accurate description of her attempt of to wed John Sidney “Jack,” McCain IV (at least in my First Amendment Protected opinion – her father is a lawyer after all.)
There is also Chateau Heartiste with The Cock Carouseler’s Lament, which is brutal in its honesty.
In a self-aggrandizing confessional, she blames a TV show produced by gay men that glamorized the lifestyle of the barren urban slut for leading her down the Plan B path.
This is a cautionary tale in some ways, but it is also pretty much a sign of the times. And based on the recent utterances of high-school and college “students” things are not likely to get much better anytime soon.
