Ruth Marcus: "Monica Lewinsky Was Not Precisely An Innocent Victim"


RUTH MARCUS, WASHINGTON POST: I think it comes to something very interesting that ties together the Huckabee comments and the Rand Paul comments, which is there's only two ways -- there seem to me a tendency to talk about women in two ways when it comes to sex and sexual activity. Either they're terrible victims preyed on by older men as in Monica Lewinsky. President Clinton did a bad, bad thing, Monica Lewinsky was not precisely an innocent victim completely, I recall thong flashing there. They're either innocent victims or they are sexually promiscuous, slutty, low-life women. There's no sort of women get to use sex and sexual activity and with that use contraception responsibly just like men do.
