Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Perks for pervs

Is it a great time to be a man or what?

Well, at least it’s a great time to be a Republican man who has a thing for underage girls.

Why? Because the same support squad that went ahead and voted for Donald Trump after the infamous “pu$$y grabbing” video will come out in force to defend any and all accusations against you. They will insist that your 14-year-old victim gave her consent to be pawed by you. Or whatever. And some of them will even go so far as to compare you to Mary and Joseph, of New Testament fame. Mary was a teenager, you see. And if it was OK for a man to be with a teenage girl in New Testament days, why, it must still be OK, in certain circumstances. Such as when a U.S. Senate seat is up for grabs.

And it’s a great time to be a man when a large number of people who think you still have enough power to matter accept your excuse that you “have a sickness.” Most of these people will be your own lawyers, but the point is they’re buying it and they hope they can sell it to the public. Half of whom think it’s biblically OK for a man to grope a teenage girl.

It’s a great time to be a man when you can squeeze in an entire career before women start complaining about the way you strip and masturbate in front of them. It takes a long time for something like that to become a problem, so why not go for it? And that career you built made you popular enough that it’s really hard for people to believe these women, or they’ll say something like “that’s the entertainment business!”

It’s a great time to be a man who knocks women out with drugs so they can’t say no.

It’s a great time to be a man when you can dangle the possibility of success, or the threat of failure, in front of a woman so she’ll do what you want.

It’s a great time to be a man when you’re a woman’s boss and she’s afraid she’ll lose her job if she doesn’t perform certain “extra duties.”

It’s a great time to be a man when you have enough money to pay women off after you’ve abused them.

It’s a great time to be a man when you can take advantage of a young White House intern and then go on to become one of America’s venerable ex-presidents who looks worlds better than the current holder of the office.

It’s a great time to be a man because men by and large are in control of the machinery of justice, and no matter what you’ve done to a woman (or girl) you stand a pretty good chance of escaping the consequences.

Unless you’re Anthony Weiner.

It’s not a great time to be Anthony Weiner, but maybe he’s the exception that proves the rule.

Isn’t it a great time to be a man?

    I was just reading an article about the wonderful Roy Moore … really, mere moments ago … and I started thinking that there’s no chance he’ll win the Senate seat in Alabama because, yes, underage girls. And then I remembered who our President is and all of the horrible things he has said and done, and I realized that Moore is likely to win. I really can’t stand this country’s politics anymore.

      It’s all pretty sickening. If ‘Bama goes ahead and elects this guy, I’m boycotting. Oh wait, I already boycott ‘Bama by default. 😉

      I thought the same. The guy he is up against should win (in a world that makes sense) but this is Trumplandia and nothing makes sense here….ever.

        Down is up. And there’s been a helluva lot of down!

        A quick overnight poll shows they are now tied. But I have no faith in the voters of Alabama turning away from a Republican candidate in sufficient numbers for a Democrat to win. That is one of the reddest states there is.

    I’m so glad you wrote this, because when I heard that horrific attempt to justify Moore’s actions by citing biblical times, I wanted to just throw in the towel and cry uncle. I’m so tired of politicians spinning excuses for things that we all know are abhorrent. They’re so set on keeping their power that they’ll overlook anything that’s moral or just. Every morning my “I can’t even” grows bigger and bigger. So thank you for writing this. Having a man articulate what so many of us women feels helps keep our hope alive that things might eventually change.

      Oops, that should be “feel” not “feels.” And I mention politicians, but the same goes for the Hollywood guys and comedians who are in the hotseat as well.

      Yep, the Mary and Joseph thing just got under my craw. I mean, it’s the height of political cynicism.

      As a decent chap, I really hate seeing certain men tarnish the whole gender. 😡

    History and opinion an’t done with these pervs yet. Watch and wait.
    Meanwhile I’m nominating that biblical reference for the ‘The Most Incomprehensible response to a situation Award’ 2017.
    If it doesn’t win that one it’s sure to win the other nomination for the ‘WTF?’ Quote 2017.
    (I think it’s in the French ‘Le Imbecile Grande 2017’)
    And you must admit it’s against some pretty tough co-runners.

      It does seem to push the envelope, doesn’t it? I don’t know how these people even think up such things.

        I’ve filed it under ‘Panic’- sub file ‘Babble’ (I used to work in the UK civil service- this kind of stuff…..it’s recognisable a mile off!)

    The only thing that is gonna save our asses from these deplorables in charge is changing demographics. I hope.

      Man, I hope so. Though I just saw a story about how 30% of Latinos in Nevada are still for Trump. Seriously. WTF?!

        Fox News uses subliminal messages to brain wash people?
