The news of former head of the International Money Fund Dominique Strauss-Kahn — or DSK — being charged for an alleged sexual assault, and former California Governor and Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger fathering a love child during an extramarital affair got my attention. No matter how powerful you are, if you a man who commits such lewd acts, people just perceive you as a pig.
With all due respect to the pink curlicue tailed farm critters you’d find rolling in mud, these men’s piggish behavior is inexcusable. Yes, they ARE men, but they are also the movers and shakers that help shape our society.
You can add Newt Gingrich, President Bill Clinton, and Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi to the mix. But it’s not limited to the political world. Who can forget R.Kelly — thank God he’s not guilty in the child-porn case — who had allegedly had sex with a 14-year-old girl. And made a sex tape of it too boot.
As for Ahhh-nold… his comeback to Hollywood has been put on hiatus.
