Well the ratio of men to women here is pretty high, so it's not surprising that the majority of responses would come from me.

Now I can't speak for others, but to me the difference between Saden's comments and Hess' were that Hess seemed to say this was a serious problem particularly with "men in power". And my feeling was that's oversimplifying things. But it was nothing personal against her.

I'm not concerned with hess' past at the moment and I'm not here to speak for her. I've just noticed an all to familiar pattern here and felt I should address it.
You've earned your good reputation, don't be modest about it.

Well, looking back through the thread, there were only two or three responses that contained the words bashing and haterade. Perhaps I keyed in on those responses the most. I still stand by what I said though. I didn't have a problem with anything you said. You were the only one who was truly trying to create any type of meaningful dialogue.

How could he cheat on his wife? She was pretty hot. She looks like a more mature Jennifer Anniston.

Re: Gov. Spitzer Linked to Prostitution Ring

Lady Brave,

I actually didn't see saden's comments when I responded to hess' post. No offense to hess, but I sometimes feel that she makes sweeping generalizations about men and labels nearly all of us as adulterous and unprincipled. Not to pick on her, but had you or DynamiteRave posted the exact same thing I probably would have read the post and simply moved on.

I certainly didn't mean to make a big deal out of hess' comments. I'm sorry that we're even discussing this. I also want to apologize if I've made dumb, immature posts that objectify women or turned a blind eye when others have.

Re: Gov. Spitzer Linked to Prostitution Ring

Thanks SGG. I'm really not as worked up over this as I might sound. No apology necesssary.

I just wanted to remind people that given the amount of generalizations expressed about women on this board from day to day, you guys shouldn't be so shocked and appalled when one of us fights back a little bit.

This is a non story. Sex is legal, selling is legal. Why is selling sex illegal?

Who is the victim here? What great loss has occurred, that will justify the money the FBI will spend to find out whether or not this guy got his pole waxed?

Re: Gov. Spitzer Linked to Prostitution Ring

I'm sure his wife and kids don't think it's a "non story"

Either way, let's not kid ourselves, had this been Elliott Spitzer (R-New York) you'd be ranting and raving.

Re: Gov. Spitzer Linked to Prostitution Ring

I take exception to that. His party has nothing to do with it, I didn't think that guy in the airport bathroom was a big deal either and he was republican.

I just think what 2 (or more) adults do behind closed doors is their business, as long as no one else is hurt. I think we have too many laws on the books that have no purpose other than to regulate morality.

If you have a problem with my comments don't beat around the bush, spit it out. If you don't have a problem with it then I don't see why anyone else has to.

Re: Gov. Spitzer Linked to Prostitution Ring

I didn't have any problem whatsoever with what you said, but one could interpret your comments as sweeping generalizations which is what hess was accused of. If hess had made the comment, "it just goes to show you that men will go to any lengths for a piece of ass", she most likely would have gotten pummeled for it.

Hypocrite maybe, but I cannot believe that he is a complete scumbag. He just made a very huge mistake that has ruined his political career.
