One by one, my idols make me ashamed

First it was Susan Sarandon, who shocked me beyond words by becoming the spokeswoman for a Revlon wrinkle-eraser. She was the last person many of us thought would sell out for a chance to promote an "age-defying" product.

Now it's Diane Keaton, who has become a spokeswoman for L'Oreal, one of the companies that ended its moratorium on animal testing and then became very evasive about the fact it had done so. Keaton's long-professed love of animals doesn't mean much now.

Dammit! What is it with the continuous validation of the Fashion Industrial Complex by otherwise feminist women? I'll be heartbroken if they feel they need the validation.

Maybe they do. I doubt they need the money, unless Sarandon is pulling a Jane Fonda and using it for one of her causes. I am really sick over Diane Keaton's decision to align with L'Oreal. I suppose all those pets she's hauled around for years can feel pain, but the L'Oreal rabbits, cats, and mice cannot.

I have to say that I too was dismayed by Susan's advertising choice. I hadn't heard about Diane, and now am very sad. L'Oreal bought, um, was it the Body Shop recently - one would hope that would help them to think more about their actions, but probably not. And now y'all know why I label myself a "skeptical optimist".

Well, the Body Shop is one of the most scandalous, supposedly immorally run retail outlets in existence, so probably anything L'Oreal does will be an improvement.
