Celebrity Sex Scandals...No Big Deal?

This post is prompted from reading about Edison Chen (Hong Kong celebrity known for his role in the original movie "Infernal Affairs," which was the basis for "The Departed"; recently in "The Grudge 2"; and supposedly, according to Wikipedia, going to be in "The Dark Knight" this summer) and his first interview since the INSANELY over-publicized sex video(s)/photos scandal from the beginning of this year.

So my thought is, do you think that because we live in the U.S., we're more jaded of so-called sex scandals? Like, it happens so much that, though my initial reaction is "Really? People haven't learned by now to take better care of their stuff if they're going to DO THIS?", after about a day or so, I'm kind of like...sure...whatever...what else is new.

Also, maybe it's reverse sexist of me (or something), but I also tend to think that the girls are the more dumb ones, because, let's be honest, what guy doesn't LOVE to show off in that area? Whereas females (unless your name starts with a P and rhymes with PARIS...uhh, wait...) are generally more private and don't want those kinds of things floating around these internets.

Of course, these are all generalizations.

Umm, the point of all this? Is that I don't have a problem with these people, as long as they are honest about it. If they're faking modesty or faking promiscuous-ness for publicity, that makes me want to barf. That's all.

And now back to your regularly scheduled program of Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother, plans on becoming famous, and the never-ending shopping. I can physically see S writing another post as I type this in class. Hi, S!
