I'm not suggesting for a moment that women are less capable than men of wrongdoing. But it is rather evident that women in politics seem vastly less inclined actually to fall victim to the temptations of sin.
I have a message for all these guys: Your cheating is not just hurting your family, your careers and your country, it's hurting me. You're making it impossible for me to convince my girlfriend that all men aren't cheaters.
If the New York Congressman could have judgement this unbalanced -- snapping virtually nude photos of himself in the House Members Gym in Washington -- how can he be trusted to make decisions on behalf of his constituents or his country.
An ironic New York statue might well now stand as an adequate symbol for Weiner's situation over the last week: A larger-than-life, scantily clad male public figure, trying to keep down the images of vice represented by multiple women.
While Weiner showed very bad judgment by using social media to flirt with younger women, I think his way of communicating his feelings is slightly more evolved than that of New Mexico college student Greg Fultz.
This isn't rocket science. Men like Anthony Weiner live in the permanent fear that they are not special. Their greatest fear is that they are ordinary. And they spend their lives trying to disprove that fear.
