The recent resignation of NY Governor Elliot Spitzer is quite the story, illustrating quite many of the issues the MRA and MGTOW movements are concerned with; issues such as the state of marriage, the principles of hypergamy, the motivation of women to use sex for economic advantage, and the so-called "victimization" of females that supposedly occurs in the prostitute/customer transaction.
The picture to the right is the alleged "escort girl," Ashley Dupre, that the Governor hired. Note, she is definitely an attractive looking female...while one can denounce her for being a whore, I say at least this woman is honest about using her looks to cash in. She is straight forward in using her beauty to get money, instead of playing manipulative games and acting as a parasite, latching on to a man and getting him to finance her lifestyle under the guise of "having a fulfilling relationship based on love and romance."
Nevertheless, it's quite instructive to look at this ladies background. From Spitzer's Call Girl Identified as Aspiring Singer
The call girl at the center of the prostitution scandal that prompted Gov. Eliot Spitzer to resign in disgrace has been identified as a 22-year-old aspiring musician who struggled in a broken home as a child.
A broken home? I'm shocked I tell you, just SHOCKED!
This poor lady is a VICTIM of an unscrupulous, rich, white, male politician taking advantage of her psychological problems stemming from a "broken" home! (translation: a single mother headed household.)
As a former "Madam" of a high-end escort service similar to the one Ashley worked for writes in her Pajamas Media column, I've Seen My Share of Spitzers,
None of these girls was coerced into selling her body for money. Most of them came from middle-class backgrounds, and many had been accepted to universities. But they dropped out as soon as they discovered that they could make $20-30,000 a month as an escort.
Then they got addicted to the money and the lifestyle. And then one day, usually between the ages of 25 and 28, once they’d developed that knowing, experienced look that clients instinctively disliked, they found that themselves in a classic bind: they were addicted to high living but could no longer pay for it; they had no marketable skills; and years of late nights and lazy days had left them with no self-discipline. What to do? The really smart ones pulled themselves together and, with the help of a sympathetic client, started some kind of a business. Others married rich, cynical, older men in a sort of paid-wife arrangement. Those were the most common stories. I did not inquire into the fate of the girls who sort of faded away. I did not want to hear about their loneliness and poverty.
So the value of the escorts declined rapidly as they aged. Meanwhile, the value of the clients increased because they accumulated more money and more power. I could not make my peace with the power imbalance, even though I understood intellectually that the men would always want to pay women for sex, and there would always be women who wanted to be paid for sex.
But as a modern woman brought up to believe in romance, intimacy, equality between the sexes and monogamy, I had a really hard time dealing with the dawning understanding that the very men I’d been taught to value — my peers, as it were — were pretty atavistic types. They seemed to prefer whores in the bedroom and ladies in the salon.
Even this lady, intimately involved with the inner workings of a prostitution ring and the girls that willingly sell their bodies for money - not because they HAVE to, but because they WANT to for the easy money, still struggles with the programming of our feminist corrupted society. Also note her tacit admission of women's expiration date of physical attraction versus men's increase in relationship value as he ages.
Anyhow, the main point remains: society is hypocritical when we have laws against the freely entered transaction between two consenting adults, where a man pays a woman for sex, and this is a "crime." But a woman that marries a man for money and than divorces him? She receives government assistance in basically stealing the money from a man and giving him nothing in return under the name "alimony."
Will such hypocrisy ever come to an end?
