TabooPimping is high fashion right now. Whether you're Lil Jon getting crunk, or it's your ride that's pimped, every boy wants to grow up to mesmerise bitches with his gem-encrusted pimp goblet. It's cool to pimp, and it's doubly cool to have your ho's around you, slapping them up when necessary.
Yet it's still decidedly uncool to be caught making the most of the slut-tastic riches this heavy pimping has to offer; or, at least, it is for the discerning gent that fancies a bit of twink with his breakfast. Mark Oaten, former Lib-Dem leadership challenger, quit frontline politics this weekend amid the news that he had a six-month affair with a 23-year-old rent boy. Mister Oaten, pictured here as a dangerous and manipulative Svengali, has already proved his virility by siring two children, albeit unfashionably with the same woman.
Even the most fundamentalist of Christians would notice the bleak double-standard at play here. Want to be like 50 Cent, kids? Fine, you're a budding fashionista. But woe betide if you'd prefer to dip your pimp stick into some barely-legal manflesh of the sort that would make George Duroy salivate. Agree with me that this is a travesty? Then fax your local MP and tell them you want them to sleep with a rent boy. Only this way will we change the blatant prejudice that pervades the fashion and music industries.
