“Trend” or Con Artist on Trial?

Seeing a pattern with one’s loves—seems pretty reasonable to me, where one befriends new people whom resemble friends of the past—maybe even dating back to one’s family. So a “fetish” for short-haired brunettes might appear after awhile—if one dates long enough without settling down.

But what about “culture fetishes?” Could it be that the phenomenon I just mentioned reaches out from an individual to their friends and community? That seems reasonable too, but then this can lead to superficial choices of partners too—when the reasons aren’t “personal affections” but for some sort of status symbol; Maybe Kari Ferrell was exploiting some sort of “trend,”—but why demonize her more than any other con artist? Is it the “trend” or her that is “on trial” here?

Maybe I’m missing Momus’ point(s)?
