Other women

Why haven’t we heard about any of the other prostituted women that Gov. Spitzer pay-for-raped?  He used that same service multiple times, right?

victimless crime?

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — chiroptera @ 7:28 pm

Thanks to Feminism Online for linking to a New York Times Opinion piece about The Myth of the Victimless Crime by Melissa Farley and Victor Malarek.  They ask, WHAT do we know about the woman Gov. Eliot Spitzer allegedly hired as a prostitute?  I wonder why every mention I heard of this on mainstream tv and radio only mentioned the governor’s infidelity but overlooked the human rights issue.  Well, I don’t wonder because I know that misogyny is so common that most people don’t notice.  Throw in classism and some people probably believe that Kristen’s life is not worth as much as Eliot Spitzer’s life or the lives of his wife and children.  In fact, they don’t think anything about her worth because they don’t think of her at all.

Ain’t no sunshine for Number 9

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , — chiroptera @ 9:14 pm

Pay-for-rapist* New York Governor Spitzer is reported to have spent tens of thousands of dollars on a high-priced prostitution service.   But apparently for all that money he still couldn’t get a BBBJ

In the court papers, an Emperors Club employee was quoted as telling Kristen that Client 9 — Spitzer, according to investigators — “would ask you to do things that … you might not think were safe,” and Kristen responded by saying: “I have a way of dealing with that. … I’d be, like, listen, dude, you really want the sex?”

A law enforcement official said Tuesday the discussion had to do with Spitzer’s preference not to wear a condom and the call-girl’s insistence that he use one.  (READ THE ARTICLE HERE)

Why didn’t somebody tell him to look for Sunshine on Craig’s List or some similar service that advertises women men can pay to rape*?  You would have thought that in all his time as a prosecutor he would have learned a little more than that.

*Please don’t post a comment that says something like, “one man paying another man for the right to have sex with a woman that the first man enslaves is just free speech.  It’s my right.”
