Whatever the outcome of “Weinergate,” I blame the women.
There, I said it. I’ve listened to the claims that Rep. Weiner is “abusing his power” and “exploiting young women” by firing off crotch shots to college coeds half his age. Interestingly, these charges are coming from conservatives, who usually aren’t quick to join in on feminist pity parties. Whether their concern is sincere or not, I have one thing to say: Give me a break. These women are not being exploited. In fact, way too many of them thrive on this stuff.
Yes, this is an opinion from a Conservative young woman. It’s also not surprising to me. I’ve been young and I’ve observed many young women. Have any of us completely escaped being “intoxicated” by “power and influence” while still young and naïve? Or, sometimes, even not so young or naïve? ♥
