george w. bush likes to fuck cats, is what i'm saying

So. There's video and photos here (I found it through here) of that catfucker we've got running this country giving a sneaky, uninvited neck massage to Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany. Who it just so happens is a woman. Heeeeey, pop quiz!!

This incident is an example of:
(a) a stand-up guy just trying to be nice to one of his fellow world leaders who he thought looked tense
(b) a monkey accidentally set loose among a group of international statespeople
(c) a first-class catfucker making sure that the only woman in the room is good and aware that she can't expect men she barely knows to respect her personal space, much less her right to run a country of her own

Every woman in the world has probably experienced this same move a few times. When it comes from a man you don't know well, it's not a kind gesture, it's a power play — the guy is telling you that he doesn't have to wait for either tacit or explicit permission to touch you, he can do whatever he wants to your body, and he can do it any time he wants. But he's disguising it as a little gift to you so that if you get upset, you'll look like the one who's being unreasonable — after all, he was just trying to be nice. And it's a pretty good bet that Merkel is familiar with the strategy; just check out the look on her face.

I don't think that this is a conscious thing that men like The Catfucker do, and I certainly don't mean to say it's never okay for a man to give a woman a shoulder rub without asking her permission first (uh, speaking for myself, to anyone who knows me well enough to read this blog, please feel free! anytime! just watch the sunburn!). But when it's a man you don't know well enough to have established that level of familiarity with, and especially when it's someone you're having professional (or political) dealings with, there's an implied threat there. It's a watered-down and disguised threat of physical violence, and the message is, do not challenge me, little lady, because I don't even have enough respect for your right to control your own body to ask before I touch you in a familiar way, so you certainly don't think I'd feel any compunction about hurting you if you got in my way, do you?

For more, be sure to check out this video of The Catfucker using a woman's clothing to clean his glasses.

I like choice (b), personally. I mean, look at him, sneaking about and leaping onto the unsuspecting back of a proper Deutsch Dame.
