Ladies can be creeps, too.
I have to say, I kind of like it when famous lady people make the same kind of creepy romantic choices that we’ve come to expect from pervy old movie star men. Not because I take delight in their many, many romantic failings- entertaining as they may be. It’s more because it just goes to show that power causes people to act in very specific ways. And since we usually associate males as being the more powerful of the two genders in the Western world, men are typically allowed to make, enforce, and then subsequently break all the rules. Which means marrying women younger than their own daughters and getting high fives for bagging that hot tail at their church-sponsored Tea Party potluck.
But not just men can be insecure creeps who keep marrying people in order to ensure someone, ANYONE loves and approves of them. Not only men choose to marry someone who has lesser economic means than they do, in essence trapping the person into an uneven, inequitable relationship built on material comforts and emotional blackmail. As J. Lo proves to us time and time and time again: Ladies is pimps, too. I for one like it when powerful women behave like huge assholes, on par with the majority of dudes. It makes me feel like the E.R.A. did kind of get passed after all (despite the efforts of that sad bitch Phyllis Schlafly).
