Lately, a picture of President Obama staring (or maybe not, but let's for argument's sake say he did) at a girl's behind at the G8 summit caused a major brouhaha. I guess they have nothing else to worry about.
The reactions by "conservatives" are amazing. From "Negro sensuality" via "We once again have a President who is more interested in the ass of a 16-year old then doing the right thing for our country" to "just a 'regular dumb guy... looking for a little butt action ... and bows to Saudi royalty, too", there are all kinds of topical, witty, straight-to-the-point, politically savvy and punctuation-conscious comments. One was even worrying what Little Miss Flimsy Dress might "feel" having those evil evil men staring at her butt. I'd say: satisfaction that the dress worked so well and she got all the attention she clearly doesn't deserve. However, what none of those "conservatives" asked was what the parents of that girl thought, when they let a girl that young strut her behind, barely concealed by a thin bit of cloth, at an international political gathering. Or rather: What a girl has AT ALL to do at an international political gathering.
I'd never thought that I'd ever say anything nice about Obama but the storm in a teacup about an instinctive and natural male reaction just shows what a bunch of sexually repressed and emasculated weirdoes Americans are. The behind of that girl didn't look like 16. What is a normal, healthy male supposed to do? Say: "Excuse me Madam, but before I stare at your arse, are you above legal age?"
Elsewhere, 9-year old girls are marriageable, consummation included. But who cares? It's so much more sexy to be outraged if a normal American guy stares at a behind that looks 25, if only the girl attached to it is 16.
