So… have you heard the one about the paunchy, not-very-attractive, high-level Frenchman who comes out of the bathroom in his New York hotel suite, buck naked, and throws the young hotel chambermaid on the bed and rapes her.
It’s not a joke. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who was supposed to run against Nicolas Sarkozy in the next French presidential election, and is head of the International Monetary Fund, is the alleged rapist. After the incident, he hot-footed it to the airport and was pulled off the plane 10 minutes before it was set to lift off for Paris.
Why is it that we don’t hear stories like this that involve women perpetrators?
Here’s why: Women do not have the unmitigated arrogance, stupidly, shamelessness, selfishness, and wretchedness to conduct themselves in such a way. And they generally think with their brains.
I am not suggesting that all women behave in exemplary manners. Nor that all men are such asses. I am saying that the penis, while possessing some useful functions, can be a dastardly device.
