Dear Wendy: “I Could Never Date A Man Who’s Hired A Hooker”

As a feminist, I’m on the fence about prostitution being legalized. On one hand, I do not feel that is is right or OK for a woman to just sell her body for a price. On the other, if prostitution is legalized, women can be a lot safer and get off the streets, making it easier for cops to catch pimps and sex slave holders. Though I feel this way, I could not be with a man or woman who has ever bought somebody for sex, especially if that person was a woman. The thought of them thinking that it’s totally OK to go up and buy a human being as if she were an object just does not sit well with me. There is no other way around it, if I found out that someone went to a prostitute, it would be a dealbreaker. I know a guy who is a widower and goes to one and he says he just does not have time for a relationship so he goes to these legal places for sex. I can see his point, but I’d want a man who would treat women with the same respect and care that he would want the women in his life to have for men. Am I stupid for feeling this way? — Feminist Against Prostitution

Girl Talk: Flirting Over Social Media? That’s Micro-Infidelity

As I’ve watched the Weinergate scandal unfold over the past few days, I’ve related to the particulars in a discomforting way. Six months, I also found myself with a partner who flirted with a woman (at least, one woman that I know of) over the Internet. The unfaithfulness on my ex-boyfriend’s part — or his micro-infidelity, as I’ve come to think of it — is an indubitable reason why our relationship tanked. Although Rep. Anthony Weiner’s transgressions over Facebook and Twitter far exceed the ways my ex-boyfriend violated my trust, I nevertheless feel some woman-to-woman solidarity with Weiner’s wife, State Department aide Huma Abedin. She, too, is likely wondering where on the relativity scale — from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hidden love child(ren) to dick pic tweets — she should classify the way her partner was unfaithful to her.

UPDATE: Weinergate Is Getting Big: Anthony Weiner Topless Pics Emerge

UPDATE: Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted in a press conference today that he had sexual conversations over Facebook and sent scantily clad pics of his penis and his chest to numerous women, whom he thought were his “friends.” Weiner said he had inappropriate conversations with six women, some before his marriage began and some afterwards. Weiner claims he never met any of the women in person and didn’t have sex outside of marriage. His wife, Huma Abedin, who is the top aide to Hillary Clinton, was not beside him at the press conference, but Weiner said the couple has no plans to separate. His voice cracking, Weiner repeatedly apologized to his wife and his constituents, but said he has no intention of resigning. You can read quotes from Weiner’s press conference and watch it from the beginning at Talking Points Memo.

Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s weiner isn’t the only body part he may have photographed: today a shirtless pic of Anthony Weiner’s bare chest hit the web. As promised, conservative wonk Andrew Breitbart has been leaking saucy pics of the Democratic rep all day. Big Government posted one image this morning depicting Weiner, fully clothed, sitting next to his cats. He sent it from his AOL account along with the title, “Me and the pussys.” This newest pic of Weiner shirtless (above) makes us wonder, 1) does he wax and 2) are there more pics to come where he’s taking it all off?

Dear Wendy Updates: “Once Bitten” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Once Bitten” who began an affair with an engaged man who had already dumped her once for the woman he would later propose to. “I know that the typical advice is ‘they never leave their wife,’ but I have loved this guy since we met and keep hoping that he’ll ‘choose me.’ When I’m with him, I always tell myself that being in love with him is enough. Then he goes home and my heart breaks,” she wrote. After the jump, find out if her boyfriend indeed chose her or if she finally got the courage to leave him for good. Keep reading »

John Edwards May Be Indicted For Using Campaign Cash To Hide Affair

John Edwards will most likely be indicted with criminal charges for using campaign cash to cover up his affair with videographer/wackadoodle, Rielle Hunter, ABC News is reporting. The U.S. Department of Justice has approved the prosecution, which seeks to indict the sleazy politician for using roughly $1 million of campaign donations to squire away Hunter from the media and the campaign, both of whom suspected the two of having an affair (and later, a love child). The prosecution is expected to argue that the Edwards campaign misused funds to try to cover up his cheating so he could continue onward with his 2008 presidential campaign. Two rich donors allegedly supplied the funds and I think we can assume “hiding the mistress” was not on their list of ways it should be spent. Ugh, I’m going to have to make a spreadsheet of sleazy politicians, their mistresses, love children, and their money problems, because it’s getting hard to keep track of them all. Sigh.

Maria Shriver May Have Leaked The Arnold Schwarzenegger Story Herself

Curiouser and curiouser! TMZ claims that Maria Shriver was the one who leaked the news that Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child with a housekeeper because she was angry at the Austrian love guv. Shriver allegedly learned her husband had a child with Mildred Baena in late-April or early-May and was so “hysterical” that she wanted to throw a press conference and publicly shame him. Her pals apparently talked her down from that idea and instead leaked the details to TMZ and The Los Angeles Times. Keep reading »

Why I Don’t Feel Too Bad For Maria Shriver

Like many women before her, Maria Shriver is doing the rounds as the disgraced political spouse. She’s on the cover of People magazine — “Maria’s Broken Heart!” trills the cover line — and she’s a guest on one of Oprah’s very last shows. (In fact, on Tuesday night when the identity of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s mistress and his love child were revealed, Shriver was spotted out on the town with Oprah at dinner.) I would bet money on it that Shriver eventually writes a memoir about this time of her life, like Elizabeth Edwards and Jenny Sanford before her.

Let me be clear: I don’t mean to make light of any heartbreak Maria Shriver and the Schwarzenegger children — they’ve got four, ages 13 to 21 — are most assuredly feeling or of the humiliation of their dirty laundry being aired in the public eye. No one deserves this and I hope they are all as tough as elephant hides as they deal with it.

And yet … I have a hard time feeling sorry for Maria Shriver. Rumors of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s infidelity and sexual harassment have been going on for years. Arnold’s wandering penis (and hands) pre-dates his governorship of California, a role that staunch Democrat and Kennedy scion Maria Shriver helped him win. So, while this situation undeniably sucks, I’m not boo-hoo-hooing for her. Keep reading »

LeAnn Rimes Was Never Taught Not To Cheat

“I didn’t have the tools to know how to do it the right way, how to let go the right way. I’d never been taught that … I have the strength [now] but I didn’t at the time… So, it got really messy, but I have learned a lot from that. And I’m not glad it happened, but I know why it did.”

LeAnn Rimes on why she cheated on husband Dean Sheremet with Eddie Cibrian. This statement annoys me. None of us were taught the right way to let go. There is no course in school that gives you the tools. You grow a pair of balls and own up to the truth because you have to, because it’s the right thing to do, not because you’re taught to. That is all. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
