This is a serious question. Every time Igwe and I start talking about infidelity in relationships, he reminds me that he already knows how I feel. Yes, I have very strong views about infidelity and relationships in general. Very, very strong views. So 16 years ago, Monica Lewinsky did whatever she did with Bill Clinton. Unfortunately for her, Bill Clinton is a man who is much loved by so many people, so in spite of his indiscretion, he seems to have been forgiven by the general public. So thanks to the love for Bill Clinton and the double standard against women, the general public doesn’t feel quite the same about Monica Lewinsky. She’s still that woman.
I personally would like to see the world move past what Monica Lewinsky did. She was not alone in the act, and Bill Clinton was even more guilty in my opinion because he was the married one. What I find interesting (and annoying) is that Monica Lewinsky is coming out to tell her story, and in her version of the story, she seems to think that she was the victim.
She talks about how she couldn’t get jobs because of this indiscretion and how people judged her, and how she thought that she and Bill Clinton had a future together. Oh, really? You thought that you and someone else’s husband had a future? You thought he was just going to leave his wife and walk off into the sunset with you? How did that work out for you, Monica?
Side Chicks everywhere need to watch and learn. I’m not saying that it can never happen, but “research” shows that it is quite unlikely that a married man will leave his wife – with or without kids – for you. This is like the time that the women who were cheating with Tiger Woods were shamelessly crying on television, saying they were hurt and they thought he loved them. Really??? So when you decide to consent to having a relationship with a married man (or even a man in a any kind of relationship with another woman), don’t come back and act surprised when you’re left in the dust. Expect it. Own it.
In her Essay for Vanity Fair, Monica said a lot, and below are some of what she said:
“Sure, my boss took advantage of me,” she writes now, “but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship. Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position.”
“The Clinton administration, the special prosecutor’s minions, the political operatives on both sides of the aisle, and the media were able to brand me. And that brand stuck, in part because it was imbued with power.”
“My own suffering took on a different meaning. Perhaps by sharing my story, I reasoned, I might be able to help others in their darkest moments of humiliation. The question became: How do I find and give a purpose to my past?”
And if you’re wondering what her goal is in all of this ….
“To get involved with efforts on behalf of victims of online humiliation and harassment and to start speaking on this topic in public forums.”
So I have to wonder, if the mistress who willingly entered a relationship with a man who had already made the ultimate commitment to another woman would dare to feign victimization, then what is the wife supposed to do or feel like? Monica Lewinsky and all other past, present, and future side chicks need to take a seat. In fact, take the whole couch \_______
Side chick or not, Monica is a beautiful woman, and I absolutely love this picture of her. Her coat is beautiful!! I don’t know who made it, but I love it. Big breasts have a way of making everything look better. I should know 😀
