How Should A Man Relate To Jenn Sterger?

I’ve spent my morning looking at photos of Jenn Sterger and I have come to some very profound conclusions.

I’m wondering if she wanted to receive those intimate texts from Brett Favre?

I’ve spent a long time looking at photos of Jenn Sterger and I am mystified at what else one would text to such a lady? Brett’s Little Viking might be just the thing.

Jenn Sterger has based her whole career on her sex appeal. So why is it wrong for guys to try to relate to her in a sexual manner? Heck, I am a very religious guy, but after a quick peak at her photos online, I want to send her photos of me.

And that’s not how I normally relate to women. Normally, I am much more interested in their character and soul than their body. I want to go to shul with girls, not go to bed.

Such meaningless sex is boring to me and I know that it loses its excitement after several decades.

I remember the movie director Greg Dark, who got to know dozens of actresses. Some of Greg’s peers were appalled. They said he was abandoning the lofty standards required of someone in his position as a genre director.

Greg’s view? What else do you do with them? Discuss Descarte?

Girls who put their sexuality first and forward will inevitably attract sex-centered attention.

On the other hand, pious Torah scholars such as myself inevitably attract lofty theological insights, which, in the final analysis, are much more rewarding.

It hurts me to waste my time on this tawdry story when there is so much in the Torah that I have yet to understand.

How come sexual harassment only goes one way? Women can dress as provocatively as they want but if men respond to that, even if only by staring, then it is sexual harassment? (Dennis Prager)

Why am I not being sexually harassed when a woman with a great rack turns her headlights on me?

I am only flesh and blood. I know most of my readers think of me as a great holy man, but I too have my weaknesses and the high beam can dazzle me and render me incoherent, thus separating me from my fierce commitment to ethical monotheism and leaving me to wander in a fallen secular world abounding in Jenn Stergers.

I want to share a story with you. Only now can the truth be told.

In 1999, I was set up with a nice Jewish girl. We IM on AOL. She asks me what I like and then she emails me a photo of herself and she asks me to email her back an intimate photo of myself.

How did I know that this was not a trap? That this evidence would later be used against me when I made courageous moral stands?

Let me just say that I went forward in faith and God never punishes someone who acts in faith.

I’d like to think that my indiscretion has disappeared into the ether.

The other topic that has been preoccupying me of late is suicidal gay teens. I’m thinking that one bright side of this tawdry Jenn Sterger story is that some confused and suicidal gay teens may look at photos of Jenn Sterger and find their way back to the light.

Howard Kurtz writes: I didn’t get into journalism to write about Brett Favre’s private parts, and I suspect most of my colleagues would like that story ruled out of bounds.

But our ability to spike such tawdry tales ended many seasons ago. The story of whether Favre sent racy messages and pictures of what family newspapers call genitalia to a female New York Jets staffer started on the snarky sports blog Deadspin, and was soon propelled to the 50-yard line of MSM Stadium. If the sexting allegations against the veteran quarterback are true, Deadspin may have performed an admittedly distasteful public service.

…The danger, as sleazy stories ooze from the depths of the Web, is that traditional news outlets will find themselves spreading unsubstantiated garbage. But in a growing number of cases — the Enquirer’s John Edwards takedown comes to mind — the allegations unearthed by tabloids and blogs turn out to be true. While it’s clearly troubling for a publication to fork over cash for trash, the condescending media elite are often forced to play catch-up.

In the end, I don’t want the New York Times devoting its resources to quarterback sexting. The paper, and others like it, should investigate campaign finance abuses, dig into city contracting, cover the war in Afghanistan — all the heavy lifting that need not concern the Deadspins of the world.
