We have a local girl in the “Great Scandals of 2010” tour at Exxxtacy (sp?). She was a jailer for the sherriff’s office, but her nude modeling career got in the way, and she was fired. She was on Playboy.com and became their Cybergirl of the Week.
After she posed for them but before she received the honor of being named C of the W, a coworker of hers made some comment about her nude photos on the internet —
Which I guess shows that you can’t be an overnight celebrity even as a naked girl on the internet. Clearly, she had to work her way up to Cybergirl of the Week.
— and she filed a sexual harassment complaint against him.
So we have an interesting collection of issues. First, there’s the question of whether a person can reasonably complain about comments made about her online presence. I remember back in the early days of blogging there was a sort of manifesto going around that said something like, “Just because you read something at my blog doesn’t give you the right to mention it to me IRL or to assume that you know me.” This always struck me as unrealistic, if not unreasonable.
If you have naked pictures online, though, is it actually inappropriate for someone to mention them?
The other question is whether she should have been fired. There is a rule saying that workers in the sherriff’s department must get permission to accept any outside paid job. Moonlighting is frowned upon. So the nudity seems tangential. She broke the rule and can be fired. The sherriff won’t comment on policies, but says that her noteriety is distracting and interfering with their work.
The jailer in question isn’t saying anything, what with being on the tour of scandalous women.
Only if you actually like it, of course.
