Empathy And Compassion Are Ethical Values But This Idiot Deserves Neither

…unless, of course, we should have compassion and empathy for unapologetic, self-destructive idiots like Anaya Peterson.

Peterson is a mother of five and—KABOOM!—a law student, but nonetheless thought it would be a good idea to get her eyes tattooed. After all, Australian model Amber Luke tattooed her eyes a vivid blue and only went blind for three weeks! That was good enough for Peterson, whose seven-year-old daughter cautioned her that the procedure was too risky. “What if you go blind?” the kid asked? Oh pshaw, Mom answered; adults know best.

Now it looks as if Mother may go blind after all. “I don’t have 20/20 vision anymore. From a distance, I can’t see features on faces,” Peterson told the media. “If I didn’t have my eyeballs tattooed, I wouldn’t be having this problem. Even today I woke up with more floaters in my eyes. And that is dangerous.”

Why is she so willing to talk about this? Why isn’t she hiding her head under a bag while she petitions to have her seven-year-old appointed as her guardian?

Ol’ Blue Eye says she regrets the decision to tattoo the whites of her eyes. Ya think? “It was traumatizing to go through,” she says about her hospitalization after waking up one morning looking like this: 

“I just remember thinking, ‘I’m not doing that shit again, with the eye tattoo. I’m definitely not doing that shit again.” You figured that out, did you? A bit late, but still…

“I’m kind of recovered — on the outside, it’s recovered. It’s just inside. I’m basically on the verge of going blind,” she says now. “If I could go back in time, I would have done one black [eye tattoo] and left it. I would have done one black. Absolutely.”

Here’s the aspiring lawyer before her eye tattoos had the predictable effect on her:

Yes, she’s a body modification (as in “mutilation”) addict. Has anyone pointed out to her that lawyers who “speak with forked tongue,” as Indians used to say in the old Westerns, may not engender trust from clients, judges and juries? Who would hire a lawyer who looks like that, except maybe someone who works in a carnival side-show, like a geek?

I would oppose a single cent of public assistance funds going to Peterson, or any other individual who willfully cripples themselves, and that includes unemployment funds. One is at liberty to do what one likes to their own body, but the rest of us shouldn’t be required to pay for the consequences of massive stupidity. But we are, of course: Peterson lives in Ireland, but if she were here, she’d probably be starting a GoFundMe. After all, she has all those children. Compassion! Pity! Charity! Empathy!

Not from me, baby, no sirree.  I’ll support public assistance for Peterson’s children, as long as they are removed from her care, but that’s as far as this ethicist is willing to go.

  1. Why is she so willing to talk about this? Why isn’t she hiding her head under a bag while she petitions to have her seven-year-old appointed as her guardian?

    After seeing some of the other work she’s had done, I’d say that falls into res ipsa loquitur territory… wouldn’t you?

  2. Are you kidding me? Peterson is a black trans-lizard and deserves extra rights because of it. You don’t want to be trans-lizard-phobic now do you?

    • Holy shit Mrs. Q, ROFLMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      (yeah, yeah I know, that’s a long acronym but it’s probably better than writing “Rolling On Floor Laughing My Fucking Ass Off”)

      Personally I don’t give half of a shit what these damned fools do to their bodies, it’s their choices and their consequences. If they play stupid games they can win stupid prizes.

      • Irish mothers of “fatherless” children get a house and a stipend and a perambulator from the government. And then the boyfriend gets to move in!

      • This may be unconscious bias, but having never spoken to this woman, I suspect that marriage was never part of her plan. She has mutilated herself in a way that screams “PAY ATTENTION TO ME,” No single individual could ever fulfill her desire for attention.
        Either that or she kills the fathers of her children and keeps their corpses in a special room, propped up around a table with her seat at the head of that table so she can pretend to have the attention she craves and the GARDA aren’t on to her yet.

        • “What if you go blind?” the kid asked.

          Boy, do I ever feel terrible for that child. Obviously grounded and sounds congenitally responsible. Will likely have to take care of her mother and her four siblings from a very early age.

  3. We should always have compassion for arrogant fools, for as a wise pastor once told me, “a sinner can repent, but stupid is pretty much permanent.”

  4. From this article, I presume intelligence and common sense are NOT a prerequisite for the study of law in Ireland. Since the US law schools have banded together to ban the LSAT as a prerequisite dare I predict the future of the already sullied US law profession?
    Back in m psychiatric training days in a state institution, the head nurse who was orienting us gave us each a bundle of keys. She sternly warned us to not let them (the disturbed patients) get the keys. I believe that “They got the keys!”
