Anthony Weiner a Laughing Stock For Alarming Trend

DPAnthonyWeiner Unfortunately, for Congressman Anthony Weiner, his last name makes the latest scandal that much funnier. 

And in all honesty, while the scandal on Weiner sexting and having extra marital relationships via telephone and social media is another black eye on our society the whole situation has really evoked laughter from yours truly. 

Now, I understand what Weiner did is a serious issue. And quite frankly, my heart goes out to his wife, Huma Abedin, who is now pregnant with child. She is the one married to Weiner, and she is the one that is ultimately humiliated in this whole ordeal. 


However, while my seriousness begins and ends at genuine feelings for Weiner’s wife, the entire situation just flat out baffles me to the point of laughter. I understand we are now in an age of easy communicating access through Twitter, Facebook, and text messaging, but the whole idea of “sexting” and sending lewd pictures of one’s private parts just causes me to wonder – what’s the point?


Seriously. 

Over the past few years, we have seen various men exposed for such pictures – most notably coming to mind Brett Favre and Sean Salisbury, former ESPN reporter, who was fired for sending a similar picture to a co-worker. 

And while sex in our culture has always been a topic that has brought out the worst in certain individuals, this “behavior” that is becoming a common trend is alarming. 

Yet, I still don’t see the point. 

Does one not think taking shirtless photos of themselves is odd? What goes through your head before you snap a photo of your genitals before sending it? 

Oh boy, this will really win her over!

Whether Weiner should resign from his position is a debate I shockingly, have no opinion of. For we’ve seen politicians in the past have sex scandals and continue on in their office. Sadly, our society, myself included, is now desensitized to such stories. 

However, in a weird way, Weiner is in a sex scandal, without even having sex? 

Ok, that was the last one, I Promise. 

Oh, and yes, what Mr. Weiner did was in fact a case of infidelity. 

Nonetheless, while this is indeed quite funny, Weiner, and all of the men in America that partake in this cyber-relationship phenomenon, need to take a look at themselves in the mirror, and not take a shirtless picture of themselves, but realize how ridiculous it is. However most importantly, through all of the situations we’ve seen so far,  they must realize just how much damage something that seems so lustful without actual physical contact, can do to their lives.

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Thanksgiving 2021: 5 Things I'm Thankful For

The season is upon us we all begin to reflect on the year, explore our deepest thoughts and feelings of gratitude, and express appreciation for the truer, more meaningful things in life.  I would be lying if I didn't admit that I am so incredibly excited for this holiday season. The combination of wanting the rest from what has been a demanding and exhausting semester (shout out to everyone in Student Affair realms and in Education around the country - hang in there), seeing these holidays through my son's eyes as he now understands and appreciates them, and my experiences over the last few years (losing my dad and the effects of the pandemic), all of it makes for an anticipated Holiday season - Thanksgiving included. I'm not quite sure what it is, or why the sudden feeling, but the need to express gratitude is even more abundant this year in my heart than it is has been. I have tried to remain more mindful over the last couple of months - being more present, spending energ

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/21/21

3 Up 1. COVID Boosters - Look, I'm not getting into vaccinations and whatnot...I'm over the discussion for 2021. However, I still find it remarkable that we not only have vaccinations for what we experienced not too long ago, but further science to help the cause.  2. MLB Covers Minors Housing - This was a long time coming. Say what you want about the changes to the minor leagues (reduction of franchises - some even closing), but the improvement of the pipeline is soooooooooo crucial if the sport is serious about improving its diversity and inclusion efforts, as well as attracting (and competing for) top talent. Plus, it's just the right thing to do. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/28/21

3 Up 1. Thanksgiving - A time for thanks, if nothing else, a restorative time away from work. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and be sure to give thanks and practice expressing gratitude.  Here are some quick thanks and thoughts from yours truly... 2. McMichael Trial Conviction - Is it weird that I feel relieved from this trial? Afterall, so many of these things go the other way. I could go on about how the state of Georgia didn't want to prosecute this case until it became a viral discussion, butttttttt, I'll just take this.  Really, I just hope this brings about some kind of peace for the parents of Ahmaud Arbery.
