Faux Hos

Interesting piece over at Carnal Nation by Monica Shores about faux sex-worker blogs and what the anonymity of the Internet has spawned. It's all nestled within the story of the controversy surrounding Alexa DiCarlo's blog, The Real Princess Diaries.

I do appreciate Shores highlighting the very true notion that what is revealed in blogs and other assorted online posts always goes through some sort of personal filter. People can sometimes forget that. Even actual stories can have elements of omission that may make them more fiction than fact. Not that anything is necessarily being purposely distorted; it's simply in how it's framed.
