After reading some crazy shit about Monica Lewinsky and Hillary Clinton this week, then seeing this Tweet from Erica Jong:
BLAMING WOMEN IS ALWAYS IN FASHION! Never forget it.
I am reminded that times like these call for Jimmy Buffet:
Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame,
But I know, it’s my own damn fault.
Yes, and some people claim that there’s a woman to blame
And I know it’s my own damn fault.
Every time I hear “Margaritaville” on the radio (which is often, I live in San Francisco) I get a feeling of calm and relief. Men can take responsibility for their actions. More importantly, people can. Let’s stop being victims. Stop pointing– or shaking– your finger at someone else and clean up your side of the street. It’s good for America.
