So she likes dick:

I posted that to demonstrate a departure from the decades long fascination with westerners in manga and anime in depicting a Japanese girl with actual "Japanese" Original eyes.

Relationships are complicated, and even bad relationships are hard to leave. I can't judge anyone for their relationship choices since some of mine have been less than spectacular. Quite honestly, it is none of my business. Unless he is hitting her or abusing her in some manner, I will not judge. Weiner is an idiot who has a proven track record of doing incredibly stupid things. But I can say the same for many people, and good people that I like stay with them.

I agree with Chani, relationships are complex. From the outside looking in you always think you know what's best for people.

Abuse isn't just smacking a person around. Weiner abused Amaba as surely as if he kicked the shit out of her.

People cheat. I don't judge him for his cheating, that's for Huma to do should she so choose. And hell, for all I know they have an open marriage.

Rather, I judge him for his pedophilia, or at the very, very least, the attempt thereof; I seriously doubt he hasn't taken any of his sexting with 14 and 15 year-olds to the next level. But even still, he has clearly broken the law. That he hasn't been indicted, I do not understand... well, I do understand but I don't like it.

But a woman has a right to be a fool, I suppose.

She supported Hillary after all.

That is true, and rather than referring to her as an idiot, we need to support her and undetstand the psychology of people who stay in abusive relationships, and support those people in making better choices.

But ultimately, my point is, her life is not endangered and everyone has the right to make poor decisions.

You're right. I stand corrected regarding referring to her as an idiot. Yes, everyone has the right to make poor decisions. And it's most likely true she's made some poor ones because she is psychologically challenged by her traumatic experiences.

But where does one draw the line between poor decisions because of trauma and poor decisions because some poor shmuck really is simply an idiot?

That's gonna consume a lot of time and resources and, I expect, will not buff out...

That one has the right to make the wrong to even extinction-level stupid decision does not free one from the inescapable recognition as being an idiot.

There is clearly something wrong with the guy.

Were he and his wife merely two consenting adults, one could shrug shoulders and say, "Whatever..."

But, they have a child, and that changes the game.

His repeated aberrant behavior, which now allegedly involves minor children, all but demands that the continued enabling cease...and that includes ceasing to enable her own role in what is demonstrably a profoundly dysfunctional family.

Anthony Weiner Pleads Guilty in Teen Sexting Case, Wife Huma Abedin Files for Divorce


Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner wept openly in federal court Friday as he pleaded guilty to sexting a 15-year-old girl — and broke down as he admitted to the judge: "I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse."

Weiner, 52, pleaded guilty in Federal District Court in lower Manhattan to one charge of transferring obscene material to a minor. Under a plea agreement, prosecutors asked he serve 21 to 27 months behind bars. He must also register as a sex offender.
