Skip to comments.Anthony Weiner's Fear: Being Invisible to Women
Posted on 06/14/2011 12:38:15 PM PDT by Brandonmark
The fear of aging and being ignored affects the behavior of politicians like Anthony Weiner, stars like Arnold Schwarzeneggerand the rest of us, says Christopher Dickey.
I had lunch recently with a good friend who is a veteran of the CIA and one of those spies who is a study in grayshandsome enough, but always in the background; never the first person youd notice in a crowded room, and very possibly the last. Given his profession, I thought he wanted to be that way. So I was surprised when, early in the conversation as a college student served us iced tea in the diner, he said to me that one of the worst things about getting older is that you become invisible to women. Its not just that they arent interested in you, he said, its that they dont see you.
Not many men admit this, I think, although I am sure that many men in their 50s and older, and not a few in their 40s, must feel it. And I suspect that it is this sensation of invisibility that makes some menespecially politicians and actors who have made careers trying to be loved in publicmake ridiculous spectacles of themselves as they get older.

Betting this dude has something in his “history”...and it will unfold unless he resigns.
Then Weiner should ask to revise and extend his remarks.
Get over it dumbass- it is a natural evolution stage in the process of aging
The “Invisible to teenage girls” phase
Turst me- if your elevator goes all the way to the top you LIKE these phases
Well, women who get older get invisible too. We are all in the same boat.
There are seasons to life. Age gracefully. You don’t always have to be the best looking thing in the room.
He’s too homely and arrogant to be invisible. But he certainly doesn’t have anything attractive about him. Especially his personality. His only way to get chicks hot was his Congressman’s ID. Not that shabby little wiener he so loved.
He’s only got a degree in political science and is not an attorney like a lot of these weasels in congress so absent being a congressman, this guy is qualified to work as a clerk at Macy’s.
I don’t buy this author’s premise at all. I get the feeling Weiner ALWAYS felt invisible to women, that’s why his insecurity led to his twitter behavior. This despite the fact that his political power (the ultimate aphrodisiac) could probably get him any chick in the room at just about any Washington cocktail party. He’s the classic 98 lb. weakling as a teen who got sand kicked in his face and spent the rest of his life trying to overcome it. I doubt Arnold has EVER been invisible to women or felt that way - he’s just a major league horn dog.
You don’t become invisible to women as you age - you become invisible to high school and college girls. Emphasis girls.
They also happen to be mostly invisible to me. All the right parts and yet also very few of the things that make a woman a woman. Nice to look at, but nothing that gets my attention.
So says Mr. Dickey!
You have to be young and virile to be a father to a child for maybe 18 years.
A young woman knows this, so does not look for a mate that is more than old enough to be her father.
I go along with Rush’s idea - Weiner has been dominated by liberal women all his life so, when alone, he acts out. His texts were full of dominant/controlling sexual talk - easy to do when not face to face.
The guy is a wus.
If you’re over 40 and want to get a young woman’s attention, just put a wad of $100 bills in your pocket and go to a strip club.
That is a jewfro on the level of Phil Specter’s.
You said it,
The “history” surely has to do with BOYS and all this heterosexual weirdness looks to me like some strange means for Wiener to prove to himself that he really isn’t what he looks and sounds like: an ugly, swishy, little fudgepacker who is having a mid-life crisis involving sexual identity.
It will be hard to prove but I’d bet dollars to doughnut holes (inflation) that up until about age 40 or so, “Tough Tony” was a real sweetie pie.
Too bad Kirsten Powers is a Democrat. I’ll bet she knows a thing or two.
