Every time there’s a politician “sex” scandal, my email and gchats go haywire with comments from friends asking for my opinion. Most of the time, I shrug and give a “I don’t care” response. But after this second Anthony Weiner fiasco, I guess I cared just a little bit. I found it interesting that the object of Weiner’s desire, Sydney Leathers, is milking her 15 minutes of fame for everything that it’s worth.

In a recent post on XOJane, Leathers dolls out advice on how to grab the attention of a politician and how to keep it:

I know a lot of people judge me (shout-out to MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts who went on air and called me “batshit crazy”), but I don’t think it is their right to judge — just as it is not my right to judge them. We all have what we want to do in life and what our own personal standards are.

Why does having a sexting affair with a married man or even doing porn make someone a “bad person”? Give me a break. I’m not a war criminal. I’m a human being who has made certain choices, some of which involve my sexuality.

Yes, I’ve made thousands of dollars from sugar daddies.


I enjoy my sexuality, and it doesn’t make me anything other than what I am: a young woman who’s enjoying her life to the fullest and going on plenty of adventures with willing partners.

To Maureen Dowd and every other woman who thinks she knows anything about me — or anything about feminism for that matter — you don’t.

For me, Anthony Weiner was a weird science experiment. I wanted to see how far it could go. How far could I push it? How long could it go on? Part of me wonders if his refusal to quit is his OWN science experiment.

Well needless to say, the commenters on XOJane pretty much dragged poor Leathers through the mud.


Oh, Jesus Fucking Christ, what the actual fuck is this goddamn garbage? I did a double take when I saw this article. I can’t believe this is real. Jane, I respect you, but this is fucking shameful shit right here. Sydney Leathers, maybe it’s not a very nice or feminist thing to say, but YOU’RE A DUMB WHORE. GO AWAY.

Oh, I need to go wash my hands. She’s really just trashy. “I’ve made thousands of dollars from sugar daddies.”
Leathers previously stated that she could have hid after the scandal broke, but she wanted to have her voice heard.  I guess by having her voice heard, she meant doing masturbation porn.  In any event, Leathers will eventually learn that once her 15 minutes of fame are up, that it might have been better for her to have hid and went about her “normal” life.
