Stormy Daniels, #youtoo

The first thing that I noticed watching 60 Minutes, after her unnaturally enormous breasts and her obvious dignity, was that she is a very smart person. She talks so to the point that she would be an excellent editor (writer). A smart cookie.

It’s easy to see how Trump liked her. She’s his type of extremely good-looking and just like him, she’s strong-willed and exceptionally smart. Allegedly, he said: Just like my daughter Ivanka. In an extramarital affair, it is logical that he didn’t say: Just like my wife, but this is also what attracts him in his present wife: she is her own person and presents herself well to the outside world (trophy quality). People like Trump can be very lonely and it’s nice to have company, feel that you’re not alone.

(Not that affairs really satisfy our need for intimacy, as his alleged repeat behavior proves.)

Now, one of the prominent things she stressed was that her alleged “sex” (intercourse) with Donald Trump was consensual. No one forced her. She is not a victim.

This is a good example of someone extremely bright who doesn’t get it yet, because emotional smartness doesn’t always keep up with our intelligence.

She said:

I realized exactly what I’d gotten myself into. And I was like (DEEP LONG SIGN), “Ugh, here we go.” (LAUGH) And I just felt like maybe– (LAUGH) it was sort of– I had it coming for making a bad decision for going to someone’s room alone and I just heard the voice in my head, “well, you put yourself in a bad situation and bad things happen, so you deserve this.”

THAT is EXACTLY what the #metoo movement alleges. That especially many men take opportunity as permission, and that many women feel as if they have no voice to protest and power to resist (confirmed by haughty men).

Ironically, one of her most important reasons for the interview was to claim  that she was not a victim. Her words though state that she was. She thinks victims need to be pathetic.

No, proud women can fall victim too. Just as Monica Lewinsky now finally admitted, decades after she was taken advantages of.

Admitting victimhood does not disgrace the victim. We never blame the victim. Victims get to stay proud, also when everyone knows.

I hope she gets it quicker than Monica.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch Holocaust survivors in The Netherlands (Westerbork), and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo and Rav Zev Leff. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism), Oppression and Liberation (of young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners, and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
