The Pots and the Kettle

Anthony Weiner is the kettle, and all of those people out there calling him a pervert and a degenerate are pots calling the kettle black.

For those of you who have been under a rock for the past month, Anthony Weiner was caught (again) sending sexual messages to a woman through Twitter, this time using the username Carlos Danger.

I have to admit I l-o-v-e that user name.  Carlos Danger. Grrrrrr, Baby.  Makes me want to experience some danger with him.

Anyway......

I've heard reporters, celebrities, politicians, and all sorts of regular people call him a pervert and other unsavory things because of his texting activity. They are full of shit.  Have we gone so far down the puritanical road that we don't know the difference between a horny man and a pervert?

Raise your hand if you have ever sexted or sent a sexual message via text or Twitter. Yup, most of you have your hand raised.  The rest of you either don't have a phone, are over 70, or you're lying.

The big question I have in my mind is "Who cares?" He's running for mayor of NYC which means only the voters of NYC have any reason to take issue with him and all they need to do is not vote for him.

But some feel like they have to go further, like this woman who feels the need to loudly cuss at  him in a public place with children around.





What is more perverted, in the broadest sense of the word - the man who sexted a woman for months or this woman who's yelling profanity in a public place in front of children?

I know.  It may be a toss up for you, and I'm not saying Weiner isn't a kettle.  He's definitely a black kettle, but that woman is clearly a very black pot.  Know what I mean?

Let me go back to what he did.  He sent sexual tweets. He didn't rape anyone.  He didn't molest a child. He's not in trouble for doing any one of the truly sexually perverted things that can be done to other people. We used to call what he did "cybersex" but the technology has changed now so it has another name, but that's what it is - naughty flirting and cybersex. So why are this woman and all the other pots so enraged? What would they do if he had done something like actually have sex with another woman?

Yes.  I do believe their heads would explode. 

And then there are those who are sure that he has an addiction and must get help. Really? That may be true, but what we know about so far is way far away from the type of compulsive behavior that would rank as an addiction.

That brings me to a new, but related topic - the mayor of San Diego. Bob Filner is what we woman call a sleazy creep.  Guys like him have been around forever. He steals kisses and touches inappropriately, stands too close, and makes lewd suggestions. He does it because he feels like he can. He thinks he's untouchable.  When the shit started hitting the fan for him, he apologized and went into counseling. Not just counseling, but a two week counseling program to serve as treatment for his...his...creepiness.

Counseling?  Really?  

I can treat him in less than 5 minutes:

"Keep your hands, lips, and dick away from any woman who isn't your wife (or lover, if you have one). Think of every woman you work with as a man.  You wouldn't make lewd suggestions to a man, would you? If you can't do this, be prepared for lawsuits that will take everything you own, you sleazy creep."

See?  Easy. 

However, as with Anthony Weiner's case, I propose that it's really none of our business.  The people of San Diego have a say in the matter because he is their elected official. The women he harassed most certainly have an issue, although anyone who sues because she was never touched but made to feel a little uncomfortable is in a category of her own. For the rest of us he's just another sleazy creep. Why are the pots out in force making it such a big deal?

I used to work for a sleazy creep.  Where were all the reporters demanding justice for women then? 

And another thought - just for the women. If we insist that we're strong enough, stable enough, smart enough, and capable enough to be President or to serve in combat...or...or...or.... doesn't it hurt our case if some us cry creep and sue because a powerful man stood a little too close and made us feel uncomfortable?

Ok, what was I saying?

Oh yeah.  GET A GRIP, PEOPLE! We need to stop overreacting to men being normal, imperfect men. If Filner actually sexually harassed some of those women and they want to take legal action, that's up to them. I wish them well. He was a bad boy and there may be serious consequences for it, but don't we have more important things to think about?

For me, it's trying to figure out Weiner's new Twitter username so I can have some naughty chat with him.

This is one of the many problems with politics in our country. Almost without exception, the people who are crying the loudest about Wiener have done similar or worse, but they are only fussing about it for political gain.

As for that creepy guy in San Diego, women need to learn to fart in the office. Seriously. As soon as Mister Creepy starts making unwanted advances, just let one rip. That is usually enough to make a guy, even a creepy one, back off.

Beautifully stated, and couldn't agree more. And the woman is certainly in the wrong for the foul language.

JF - Fart in the office? Seriously? Ewwwwwww. I think Mr. Sleaze should be able to learn to have appropriate around women who are just doing their jobs. Heck, we can train dogs to do just about anything, can't we?

cammies - Thank you. Doesn't that woman just make you shake your head?

Well Kat I love paradox so now that you are coming to the rescue of Mr. Liberal I'll have to put my political compadre down!

You see I engage in dangerous cyber behavior (based on the analysis of Mr. Weiner's behavior) but I'm a glorified burger flipper, I don't deal in millions of taxpayer dollars. Mr. Weiner seems to have no problem shipping his pecker out along the cyber highway which in no way hurts anyone as long as they are a normal citizen. But the mayor of New York is not a normal citizen. He is responsible for the oversight of public services to millions and must be held to a higher standard. He should step aside as his actions have gotten ahead of any message he may have had.

The other thing is he was apparently fairly ineffectual as a US Congressman. He spoke a lot but legislated very little.

That being said Carlos Danger is a great name, wish I thought of it!

Gosh I've missed your posts miss Kat!
I agree with you that what he did wasn't really that big a deal in the grand scheme of things. Personally, I think that most politicians are unfaithful. The smart ones just do it discreetly.
But, it's universally known that the general public holds people in power to a higher standard. So, in my opinion he's kind of an idiot to think that he can have a high profile job, and continue to go around sexting random women without being found out.
And strange as it sounds, I can't help but wonder if his lack of discretion in this instance isn't an indication of bad decision making skills in other aspects of his life, which makes me question his leadership abilities.
It's flawed logic, I know, but it's how my weird mind works. I do think that the public backlash is way out of proportion though. It's really no one's business except the people involved, and I guess the voters of New York.

I think Filner is so much worse when you consider that he targeted military rape victims. He should be strung up for that. 1 week of rehab my behind. Let him be Big black bubba's Ho for a week, that might give him some perspective.
