eerie sexual aspect to Dubya's illegal domestic spying program,
and that is nonconsensual voyeurism. The man in our White House
is a man who likes to listen in on people's private conversations
and won't even ask permission, even though permission is ridiculously
easy to get. The man is a Peeping Tom. We impeached one president
over a botched blow-job. But being a Peeping Tom is worse. For
one thing, it's not consensual.
Bush get warrants for his eavesdropping from the FISA Court when
they were so easy to get? Why do some men only get aroused when
they're doing something they're not supposed to be doing?
Some of my
sex therapy clients are Peeping Toms, many of them professional,
church-going family men. They like to Sneak a Peek into the windows
of their neighbors, spy on them when they're taking a shower,
getting dressed, having sex, masturbating, watching TV, playing
with their dog, paying their bills, whatever. I try to help them
to stop expressing their voyeuristic desires in this way; it's
illegal, invasive, nonconsensual and wrong.
suggest that they try to enjoy some form of consensual voyeurism,
like watching their wives undress or go to strip clubs to look
at women doing nasty things or look at all the willing
exhibitionists on the web. Almost to a Tom, they're not interested.
Peeping Tom Bush is spying
for his own personal and political
purposes, his own illicit desire to
eavesdrop on certain people,
many of whom have never
communicated with a terrorist
but may have been opposed
to his policies.
at my suggestions as if I'm offering candy when what they want
is cocaine. What they want is the thrill of doing something they're
not supposed to be doing. The thrill of watching someone who doesn't
know they're being watched, or doesn't want to be watched. The
thrill of doing something illicit, illegal. The thrill of putting
one over on someone. The thrill of the Peeping Tom.
Peeping Tom in the Bush. And we just caught him with his pants
down. When trapped, he started squawking about how when he's peeping,
he's really protecting us. Peeping Toms, caught in the act, often
claim that they were really "protecting" or "watching over" the
person they're spying on.
Let's not fall for that crap. This Peeping Tom Bush is spying
for his own personal and political purposes, his own illicit desire
to eavesdrop on certain people, many of whom have never communicated
with a terrorist but may have been opposed to his policies. Like
more aggressive criminal voyeurs, he's a slippery one; he confesses
but doesn't apologize, then tries to blame the whistle-blowers,
desperately attempting to divert the American public's attention
from the fact we caught him spying on us.
let him get away with it, folks! There's a Peeping Tom in the
Bush and, for this and his other crimes, he should be tarred and
feathered, censured and impeached in the Village Green.
