Every generation of mankind worships female beauty whether they admit it or not. Some in the ancient past worshipped it openly. Others, like ours, worship it subversively. The ones who did so openly revered beautiful and sexual women as goddesses, and high preistesses, and made them their leaders. Meanwhile those who subvert their love of beauty label such women as sluts, harlots, witches and worse, prefering to see beautiful women trotted out only to be degraded and destroyed. Some of us hold up images of beautiful women to be cheered and revered, while others hold them up only to throw insults and rocks at them. In both cases the people involved can't get enough female beauty, but while one is worship by admiration, the other is worship by destruction. We have to wonder why so few in our society have learned to love by admiration. But until we do, the temples will remain rubble, and we're damn lucky that beauties like Britney are still willing to inhabit them.
