    If a woman had done what Scott Brown did...

    ala posing in a centerfold, do you think she would win a senate seat?

    Sadly, probably not.

    Very doubtful, although Brown didn't technically pose nude, did he?

    I guess there's a chance that a woman who did a tasteful non-nude playboy spread back in the 70's could get elected, albeit a small one.

    It's also worth noting that Arnold got elected after showing a lot more than Brown did.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Very doubtful,



    However, if she did a very tasteful one with her shirt and everything on. Then, yes I could see something, like that happen for a woman.


    But, if brown pulled it off then it is possible.

    He is nude.

    I didn't know Arnie posed nude. But the question still stands. Would a woman who did the same thing be elected? Or would she be scorned for it instead and made out to be some brainless whore for it? I'm leaning toward the latter, not that I agree with it though. I just don't see this country electing a woman who posed nude. I think they would rip her to shreds. However, a man doing the same thing and it's not an issue in the slightest.

    Sexism is still alive and well. Though, in many ways, this is not a horrible representation. It's not news to anyone men are, for the most part, sexual deviants.

    Why then would they likely scorn a woman who played right into their sexual deviancy? Because you know they would! It would be men, along with some women, who would scorn a woman who posed nude and then dared to run for elected office. Even though those same men probably would go home and jack off to her pics after talking **** about her all day.

    A lot of women are as well. It's just too bad that in this day and age, women are still held to a certain degree of disdain for exhibiting or even admitting their sexual deviant side; whereas men are often held to a differing set of standards. *shrug*

    She probably wouldn't win, but she'd get my vote if she autographed my copy.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
