Jimmy G’s porn star date is the biggest non-story ever

This is not me virtue signaling. This is not me begging to be called woke. This is not about me. 

This is about the super weird Jimmy Garoppolo thing that happened this week — not that he went on a date with a porn star, but that two single people going on a date became a huge story. 

Garoppolo’s date with Kiara Mia — an actress 14 years older than him — has yielded questions about his judgement and quips that, based on how she looks, that “he could do better.” At best, it’s strange, but it’s probably worse than that. 

As long as everything is legal and nobody’s cheating, I couldn’t care less about which celebrities date which celebrities. I don’t even care that the pretty much perfect Scarlett Johansson is dating the thoroughly average Colin Jost. The heart wants what it wants, even if it wants Colin Jost for some reason. One of the people is going to be prettier or richer or older or younger than the other. Couldn’t care less. 

But boy oh boy do other people care!!!!

Now, I only used a Britt McHenry tweet because this dumbass take is seemingly shared by a lot of people. Maybe someone in Jimmy G’s camp has said that. There are dumb people in every camp and that person would be one of them. “People are saying” is not the same as “people are making sense.” 

But you can be dumb and harmless. This isn’t the latter. It’s slut-shaming — and to a degree, body-shaming — so the people who are claiming to stand on some sort of moral high ground are actually revealing themselves to be shallow. 

This became a news story because someone took a picture of the couple when they were out to dinner, then people went on Mia’s instagram and pieced the rest together. For Garoppolo, he went on a date in his spare time, seemingly did nothing wrong and found himself in the news. 

If him being seen with a porn actress — which, again, is a perfectly legal profession — costs him in sponsorship, as CBS Sacramento wonders, that’s on potential sponsors for overthinking this. Then again, that’s what everyone’s doing for some reason.
