If I wanted to date someone who was famous and/or rich, there wouldn’t be anything unethical about it just because the person was one or both of those things.  I am not choosing to do that; the reason that I’m writing this page is that I think that there is a perception that the conglomerate has encouraged people to have of me as of someone who chases famous and/or rich people around and who doesn’t want to be responsible for her own life.  There’s that perception along with the idea that I’m promiscuous.

What would make it unethical for me to date someone who was famous and/or rich would be one or more of the following things:

–If the person were part of the conglomerate or supportive of the conglomerate.

–If the person already had a significant other.

–If the person were too young.

They are the same things that would make it unethical for me to date anyone, although they are not the only things that would make me decide not to date someone.   For all of the things on that list not to be part of a situation is a prerequisite, not a qualification.

If I had wanted to exploit some of what has happened over the past few years and also make money, I could have tried to do that.  Here’s what I’ve imagined about what my first and last time trying to do that might be like.  The places where I’m pausing and not speaking are where the other person in the imagined situation is speaking:

——————————————————————————————————————————————

“Who would you like to be:  Leo, Jake, Rob, Zac, James or Jude?  If you can’t decide, I’ve written each name on a piece of paper and put all of the pieces of paper in this hat.  Take a piece of paper and—what do you mean you want me to act out something from one of the illegal videos of me?

No, I haven’t seen any of them.

No, I haven’t watched any of the celebrity imitations of them.

No, I don’t have the Internet here.

NO, I don’t want you to tell me what happens and direct me through one of them.  You know what, get out.

That’s too bad; here’s your money back, put your pants back on, and get out.  GET OUT!”

Even if that’s not exactly what would have happened, I don’t think that whatever might have happened would have gone any farther than that, even if it’s something that I would ever have attempted.
