Anthony Weiner has found himself in the middle of yet another sexting media storm. But it's prompted us to wonder: what's the deal with sexting anyway? Are there clean rules to dirty pic-swapping?
I find it very unsettling that we're more comforted by the notion that Huma is a heartless, self-serving, political mastermind than we are by the other option: that Huma knows her husband better than anyone, sees him for his flaws, for the pain he has caused and continues to cause her, and loves him anyway.

Fifteen words we typically use only to describe women. How important is "the chase"? Fifteen signs you're addicted to bad dudes. And this wife's video temper tantrum doesn't make her any friends.
Even though the media storm from Anthony Weiner's sexting scandal has passed, what happens to the women involved? A recent article in The New York Times reminds us of the humiliation and "sl*t-shaming" that women from political scandals endure long after the headlines have stopped running.

I'm apparently in the minority on this one, however.
Regardless of what side of the political spectrum they fall on, it seems that men in powerful positions just can't keep it in their pants. The latest politician to fall under scrutiny is businessman-turned-Republican presidential hopeful, Herman Cain.
