Marielle, Rob has lashed out and criticized the paps, too, and so has Taylor. Only because Kristen has been more vocal and has flipped the bird more often (and Rob's had his outburst, too) has she caught more crap, even though her cursing out and flipping off the paps is less than they deserved on their parts. Also, some of it is because Kristen is a woman. When the rape comment BS was just starting, Kristen had paps take photos down her top on the boat ride when she dropped her sunglasses, and one managed to shoot a shot up Kristen's skirt at the Eclipse promo event. Pretty well proves her point, doesn't it? After all, those shots were plastered on porno sites almost immediately afterwards. The were posted without her consent, and were taken without her consent. Isn't sexual harassment unconsentual sexual advances? Was when I checked.
People seem to think that because Kristen's a girl and young that she'll do a Britney Spears or a Lindsay Lohan and loose it. I think that Kristen's smarter than they think, and so are Rob and Taylor, who have regualry defended Kristen and criticized the people who torture her in their blogs and such. The reality is that guys in famous positions are more likey to screw themselves up. Look at the generation of people Cher came from. She's still around and singing, while many, mostly male, are washed up or dead because they got into drugs and crap. Thankfully, Kristen seems to be following Cher's example, and Cher has given the paps her fair share of retribution in the press as well. Odd, Kristen flips off the paps and gives them what the dish out and gets criticized, but Cher can do it and no one thinks twice about it.
I pretty much think that the media is sexist, and they know that Kristen won't show off her naughy bits for the guys. Even her mini-dresses are a lot more conseravtive than what some girls wear on the street nowadays--let alone in H'wood! When Kristen wears a short dress, the pics get plastered on Celeb porno/sex sites. I'm a guy, so you can accuse me of being biased, but why aren't men harassed like that? You'd think that Rob and Taylor are owed a few from the free-throw line with the way that Kristen gets treated. And as Rob and Taylor have said, it's unfair and Kristen should be cut some slack.
Maybe if we founded some private LLC company (or Besloten Vennootschap to you Marielle, as a BV company in Holland is the same as a private limited company in England or a private limited liability company or LLC in the US and Canada) that sold cars for paps and tabloid people, that'll fix 'em in my sinister plan. The tabloid bloggers would be offered Morris Marinas: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_Marina
The print tabloid jounralist would get some Austin Allegros: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austin_Allegro
The general paps will be alloted some Leyland Princesses: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leyland_Princess
And finally, the tabloid associated paps will get old Yugos: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yugo_45
Just using a little Top Gear logic, and Jeremy Clarkson might off the Top Gear Top Tip of not being one of the paparazzi or tabloid cretins because you be given a crappy car to reflect the crappy choice of occupation they chose. Also, when one understands how horrid the cars are and how horried those aspects of the media are, you'll find some good metaphors as well I hope.
