Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Very little surprises me of attempted rape IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn a hotel maid in New York, let alone hit me on incomplete background on women harassment. Hi, can we say rich-white-male-to-right-issues?
Apparently, Strauss-Kahn “women’s problem” was an open secret among journalists, especially women. His reputation was still held and apologized in France, where he is known as the “Great Seducer.”
What is surprising as the lurid details to keep the surface not only are the women who come up with new allegations or confirmed against the embattled former head of the IMF, but women are coming to his defense.
Enter Anne Sinclair born American, the third wife of DSK. The power couple have been married for twenty years, and while Sinclair, once marked the most famous French journalist, is no stranger to forgive her husband’s discretion in the past, once famously saying that it is important “a politician who knows how to seduce,” What is worrisome about his run to the defense of her husband now is how nature provides Strauss-Kahn, a level of protection to strengthen its other ex-wife, Brigitte Guillen, who says: “Violence is not part of his temperament.”
I find it particularly disturbing when women come to the aid of men, not only with a history of extramarital sex, but sexual harassment because it deprives women based on the crimes against them, while allowing men to continue and come out with this type of behavior. What excuse. Why men never change when they have to face responsibility for his actions, but heck, even their wives tell them that right?
Sinclair and Guillmette What they are doing is nothing new. Women have been justified, forgiven, cover and rushed to defend their philandering men from the beginning of time. Jackie Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Silda Spitzer, the woman who embodies the word “humiliation” of standing next to her husband, former New York governor, Eliot as he confessed his involvement in a prostitution ring for three yeas. The stories of powerful men that spilled into the newspapers, but the truth is that ordinary men get away with it, too.
But I thought the times were a ‘changing? While at one time the notion of standing by her man at all costs with a tray of home baked chocolate chip cookies was rooted in the minds of women today is more about dumping the tray in the head and find a good lawyer. Nobody expects her man to cover more or less as it might have before. Did not learn anything from Jenny Sanford and Berlusconi, Veronica?
Perhaps women like Anne Sinclair is trying to protect themselves and their children more than their husbands. But the fact of the matter is, these days there are simply other ways to go about it. While women help men cover up their attacks and harassment of other women, men still think they are entitled to do so.
