Panty Sniffers Anonymous

Megan Fox wonders why conservative men are excusing Joe Biden’s hair sniffing fetish. She is not alone. Perhaps they do not understand fetishes. Perhaps they have figured out that when a Democrat does it it's charming, and when a Republican does it it's a crime against humanity.

Keep in mind, liberal women seem equally willing to excuse the hair sniffer in chief. Much as they excused Bill Clinton for sexual harassment and rape. Much as they excused Hillary Clinton for enabling her predatory husband.

After all, in a nation where women rise up in anger against sexual harassment… and do so in the name of its chief enabler… something is seriously wrong with the American mind.

If #MeToo is lacking in integrity then it cannot be taken seriously as a defense against sexual harassment. It is a political movement, a faction created to attack Republicans and to excuse Democrats. So, #MeToo is about duping women and getting them to vote Democratic. It deserves some credit for manipulation. It has persuaded women that Donald Trump is the worst thing that has ever happened to American women and that he must be removed from office, in one way or another.

Fox describes Biden’s behavior and the conservative men who have no problem with it:

Everyone is talking about "hugs" like that's what Joe Biden is doing. No, he isn't. This goes way beyond hugs. Are you telling me that Matt Walsh and Tucker Carlson would be perfectly fine with a fifty-year-old man, not related to them, grabbing their daughters from behind on their first encounter and deeply inhaling the scent of her hair while kissing her head? Or sliding his hand up under her breast during a photoshoot and holding onto her longer than necessary? No, they wouldn't. They'd punch that guy out. And they would be right to do so. That behavior is totally out of line.

Now, Fox errs slightly in saying that Biden’s behavior is about asserting power. It’s part of the latest thinking about rape. Haven’t you heard, rape is merely about power. Really? You don’t think that it’s just a bit about sex?

Anyway, the scene that Fox describes and that I have described is a simulated violation.

What Fox ignores, and what most, if not all commentators have ignored—exception made for this blog—is that a woman’s hair is saturated with pheromones… that is, with sexual attraction hormones. A man who snorts female pheromones is not just exercising power. A man who mainlines female pheromones is a fetishist. It is so obvious that one can only express shock and awe at the failure of commentators to call it what it is. How do serious thinkers declare it all just an affectionate gesture... one that has nothing to do with sex? 

To be extra special clear, for the benefit of those who live sheltered lives, sniffing hair is like sniffing a woman’s used panties. You recall that a television show, called Orange is the New Black, portrayed female inmates as going into business selling once-worn women’s panties. It’s a big business. It’s a serious fetish. There is a market for once-worn panties. Again, it’s not about power. It’s about pheromones.

For all of those who see no harm in a grown adult man sticking his nose into a girls’ hair, I would offer a thought experiment. Let’s say that a male intruder sneaks into a woman’s house and heads straight for the hamper… to find some once-worn panties. And let’s say that the woman’s spy cam captures the image. Do you think that she will feel violated? Of course, she will. She will feel doubly violated... for having her space invaded and for having had her panties sniffed. It is not about power. It is about sexual attraction hormones.

Hair sniffing is simply a variation on panty sniffing. It is more horrifying because it is more public. It abuses a woman’s sense of decorum, because it occurs at a public ceremony where she cannot reasonably excoriate a senior administration official without disturbing the proceedings.

What Bill and Hillary Clinton did for sexual harassment-- they normalized it--, Joe Biden is doing for fetishism... even for fetishistic actions performed without a woman's consent.

I do not remember ever sniffing either of my wive's hair, but it's been 20+ years since #1 died, and nearly 11 since I married #2. But then I'm old, and I have a lot of 404 messages in my brain.

I see Fox has lots of opinions about men in general:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megan_Fox#Personal_life " I would never date a girl who was bisexual, because that means they also sleep with men, and men are so dirty that I'd never want to sleep with a girl who had slept with a man."

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Women use a lot of hair products that smell good. Let's not equate smelling a woman's clean and fragrant hair to a panty sniffing fetish.
