Why do women dig these creeps?
Tom Smith

A fair question and one on which a huge and growing literature exists, including a corresponding blogospheric swampland (NSFW -- but Andrew should read up.  He's behind the curve on this one, to his credit).  Andrew gets kudos for noticing that the Person of Congressionality in question bears a remarkable resemblance to a turtle drawn out of its shell.  Hmm. Close;  but I think there is a suspiciously closer resemblance to that other notoriously slimy alpha male.  Remarkable, in' it? (And not to descend to the depths but, does anyone else think the Congressperson is not so favorably endowed in the relevant area that he should be tweeting his picture all around?  Maybe I'm judging wrong because of the angle but he looks pretty average at best?  Is little the new cute or something?  Never mind; I don't want to know.  The gekko has proven that it really doesn't matter.) 

But to the point, I have concluded at my late age that, sadly enough, women are no better than men.  Different, to be sure, but no better.  Men, consider your opinion of what men are like.  A sobering reflection.  Then consider that that's what women are as good as too.  Appalling, but there it is.  Many men are creeps and many women like those creeps.  Look at the garden of Eden.  Eve was talked into eating the apple by a snake, so she was stupid enough to believe a snake.  But then Adam was stupid enough to believe Eve.  What if Eve had not been there?  I'm no theologian, but I believe Adam would have tried to have sex with the snake.  It's that bad.  The only innocent in this whole mess is that poor housekeeper in Manhattan who fled to New York from whatever African hellhole it was, not any, please observe, primitive paradise, only to be attacked by Le Scumbaguette, the very pinnacle of French Civilization.  The Calvinists have this doctrine called total depravity which avers that well, we're all just totally depraved, unless saved (I think).  As a Catholic, I do not subscribe to this doctrine but I admit they have the makings of a pretty strong case.

The snake had game, Adam didn't. That's pretty much how game works, you convince the woman "you need that apple, you want that apple, price one measly soul."

I don't know if you've ready Harry Potter, but isn't that the epitome of calvinism, the chosen are part of this magical aristocratic group, and if your life sucks, then you were obviously not chosen by god (or a magical hat).

I'm a complete ignoramus when it comes to christianity, but I see a lot of calvinism in liberal thought.

I haven't read Harry Potter but that sounds plausible.

I think the flaw here is creating a category of "women" and then saying they behave in this way or that way. To paraphrase Margaret Thatcher, there is no such thing as "women." There are individuals who behave in particular ways under particular circumstances that can be explained by many things but not, ultimately, by their gender.

There is such a thing as women. Thatcher was not of the sisterhood, but that is fairly rare. She was projecting on that one.
