Confessions of a Marriage Robin Hood. . .Part Three

"Why are you doing this to me?" 
"I'd like to think that I'm doing this for you. The next woman you meet on that site might be crazy."
His cold stare said, like you're not. But he had the good sense not to let his mouth repeat it. "What do you want from me?"
"Let's start with why are you cheating on your wife, who you claim to love so much?"
"That's none of your damned business!"
Tilting my head to the side, I wished I had something to throw at him. "You made it my business when you responded to my message. Again, why are you on that site? Didn't you build a career around your family man reputation?"
"How do you know these things?" The incredulous look on his face, coupled with him being naked was priceless. I should've snapped a picture. But I just smiled. "Do you see how easy it is to find out what a man has to lose? Yet, you solicit ass online as if you're a single man."
He sputter, trying to figure out some retort. "My wife sent you. That bitch is . . ."
"Those only bitch I see here is you! Put your clothes on, you're making me sick. You look like a side of pork!"
He ran back into the bathroom and I started to feel my courage wane. How was I going to get the money? I hadn't set up an off shore account or anything. Before I put my plan on ice, a fully dressed Wendell walked into the room. "There is an ATM downstairs and I have a fifty-thousand dollar withdrawal limit."
"That's good for now."
"For now?!"
"There will be a ten thousand dollar fee for every day your profile is on that site."
"This is extortion, black mail and I don't . . ."
"Have a fucking choice unless you want the world to know what a freak you are. Now, be a good little boy and get my money."
When he left, I started thinking, what if he came back with the police? What if he came back with a gun So, when the door opened, I thought two things were going to happen — either I was going to get killed or go to jail.
Instead, Wendell walked in with my money. "Good job," I said with a confident smile that belied how I really felt. "Make sure you take that profile down tonight, your wife will appreciate that." I slapped his cheek with a gentle force then walked out of the room. That had been too easy and I was sure it would only get easier.
So, yes, I trolled the web site, I installed facial recognition software on my computers and when a self righteous son of a bitch popped up, I put on my butt pads and headed to the assigned meeting places. I'd learned from my first encounter with old Wendall, I had an off shore account where my money was wired. I also took incriminating pictures that would end up on social media and mailed to wives in twenty four hours if my money never made it into my account. 
One fool tried to test me and I enjoyed taking him down. And that is when I knew I had crossed the line.

Confessions of a Marriage Robin Hood . . . Part Two

After he sent me the instructions for how to get into the hotel room and everything, I headed to a wig store and purchased a long black hair piece to cover my auburn afro. I was tempted to get some of those cosmetic contact lenses, but I wasn’t ready to put my eyes in danger for something that might not work. Still, when I'd looked at my checking and savings accounts and saw that I had about enough money to make it through the month, I knew I had to make this scheme work. 
Now, I like to think of myself as a shapely woman. I have hips and strong thighs. But my booty. Well, let's just say Bootylicious is not my theme song. And there was no way I could fool Wendell without help. So that's why I called Beth. Let me be clear, Beth had nothing to do with anything I did. All she did was help create my ass. Let me explain, Beth is a costume designer. She's worked on Broadway but when her mother got sick, she moved back to Charlotte to help out. She is innocent. 
I lied to her. Told her that I was going to audition for a role in a play that a new Queen City acting troupe was developing. So, she made butt pads and as me to get her a job on the wardrobe crew. And of course, I told her that I would. When I put on the pads, my spandex cat suit and the wig, I barely recognized myself. 
This was going to be epic. Heading to the hotel, I had a camera, a ball gag and blindfolds. My plan was simple -- get Mr. Family Values in pictures that he'd pay handsomely to make sure they didn't end up on the Internet. And maybe he'd be smart enough to take his profile off that website. After all, today was going to be a cautionary tale. 
      The keys were at the front desk as he promised. The desk clerk didn't even give me a second look when she handed me the envelope. I guess this was second nature to her. It made me wonder how many men in Charlotte were actually cheating on their wives in this hotel right now. 
     Let me be real clear right now,I love love. I believe when people take vows it should be forever. But. . .if you're stupid enough to log on to a website to have an affair then I think you get what you deserve. Someone like me.

   I walked into the room and there was soft jazz, more specifically Kenny G, playing in the background. Really? Kenny. Damn. G! You'd think a man with an ass fetish would've had some 2 Live Crew or Lil Kim going on. 
    "Hello." I added a husky timbre to my voice. My camera was in my hand and when Wendell walked out of the bathroom -- naked and holding a jar of Vaseline -- I couldn't have been happier. 
    "What the hell are you doing?" he growled.
     "I bet your wife will ask the same thing when she sees these pictures. And the board at the bank. What do you think they're going to say?"
   "Who the fuck are you?" he stammered.
    "That depends on how much this memory card is worth to you. For the right price and you deleting that profile, I could be a figment of your imagination. But if you don't give me what I want, which is money, not that flabby thing under your belly, them I'm going to be your worse nightmare."
      It was that moment when I really became a criminal.

Confessions of a Marriage Robin Hood

                Nobody wants to be a criminal. But sometimes circumstances force you to do things you wouldn’t normally do. That’s not an excuse, that’s the truth. If you’re hungry and there’s food on an unattended plate, you’re a big liar if you say you won’t eat it.
                Well, in the summer of 2013, I was hungry and I had to eat. Crime wasn’t my first choice, but it was certainly my last resort. Honestly, I don’t think what I did was a crime. Sure, people got hurt, but I didn’t kill anyone. Yet, I’m somehow responsible. Whatever.
                Like most things in this digital age, Facebook started all of this. I had been laid off from my job at one of the city’s large banks. While I sat on my sofa uploading my resume to a career web site, this ad popped up on my Internet browser. Married and Dating.
                I wasn’t married, but I was curious. Who were the people on this site? I ignored the ad for a few days, but every time I logged on to my computer, it popped up. Curiosity got the best of me, so I clicked the pop up, signed up for a free account and browsed. The number of married men and women on the site looking for a “discreet hook up,” floored me. Then I saw him, an executive from the very company that fired me.
                Wendell Pearson, bank vice president. He had been Mr. Family Values at work, but here he was looking for a woman who enjoyed anal sex. At first, it was funny. Then a thought crossed my mind, what if I sent him a message. Would he recognize a woman who he’d laid off? Didn’t he realize that he had a lot to lose by being on a site like this? I, on the other hand, had nothing to lose. So, I paid the forty dollars to become a full member of the site and then I sent him a message. Honestly, I didn’t expect a response from him.
                He responded in twenty minutes with one question: Do you like to get fucked in your ass?
                Of course, I took a screen shot of the message before replying, yes. I. Do.
                I’d done online dating before, the normal kind. This log on for immediate sex was revolting and dangerous in the age of HIV and other sexual transmitted infections. And Mr. Family Values didn’t even say hello.
                His next message asked for a picture – of my ass. Thanks to Google images, I sent him a nice black ass he could get excited about. And it worked because he wanted to meet me that night at a swanky downtown hotel. I agreed.
                And I guess this is where the crime part started.

This double standard. . .

A young college man is supposed to sleep around. As a matter of fact, he can have multiple women in one day and that's cool.
As a matter of fact, start playing Aloe Blacc:

Now, if a young college woman and you're not a virgin, you're the slut of the world. Let's forget that you're at an age where you're exploring your sexuality as well. But this is America and you're supposed to keep your legs clothes until "The Man" comes for you.

Then, you'd better give him what he wants and don't change your mind because he's being too forceful, or treating you as if you're Beauty in The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty. If said man is a football player or famous, the police will encourage you to turning a blind eye, because it would make your life hard.
Because, honey, you are not the man -- you are a slut.

Social media will damn you to hell, while exalting "The Man" for getting off on charges. This story has played out so many times: Ben Roethlisberger, Jerramy Stevens, Stubenville, Ohio, and Maryville.

This all brings me to the reactions that I've seen about the Jameis Winston case.
There are people who say: This came out to keep him from getting a Heisman. Yeah, because a woman is going to say she was raped to stop someone from getting a trophy. What's her motivation? Who would pay her to degrade herself?

  • you are calling her a victim. And noone knows what happened. Now what happens if they charged him and then it comes out she made it up...please go Google Brian Banks NFL prospect. Women make things up as well. Maybe, just maybe he is the victim. Him making money in the NFL doesn't make him guilty.
  • Let's not forget the FACT that the young lady said she didn't want it to COME to this. So was she raped or was she a ONE night stand and at the time of the sexual assault accusation she was embarrassed?
  • Please dont believe everything the media says. If she really wanted to make a real statement she would have came out to the public and said what ever needed to be said. No police could make me keep my mouth shut and tell me things would be hard if i reported a crime COME ON MAN!!!!! THIS IS WHY WE HAVE A JUSTICE SYSTEM!!
  • None of us know what happen because we weren't there, and while I don't want to start and argument, it's not a crime because there were no charges. If he needs redemption it's to God, not a ESPN national television audience.
  • Being charged can also mean you are innocent. Just look at the Duke Lacrosse case. Those charges were dropped, and the overzealous prosecutor was disbarred, sent to jail for a short time and fined. it ruined the lives of several people. The players had to drop out of school and transfer and the coach resigned. They used bad judgement in hiring a stripper in the first place, as Winston used bad judgement too. I am not in way making light of sexual assault, but I really believe this is not an example of a football player getting a free pass.
So many people are treating the victim in this case as if she is sub-human or she asked for it.  And yes, she is a victim! A victim of the system After all, a police officer allegedly told her not to report a crime. 
We requested assistance from an attorney friend to interact with law enforcement on the victim’s behalf. When the attorney contacted Detective (Scott) Angulo immediately after Winston was identified, Detective Angulo told the attorney that Tallahassee was a big football town and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable… 
 Way to protect and serve. I'm guessing this loser still has a job. So, please tell me again how she isn't a victim.

Heather Cox, you better not say you're sorry

Following the ACC championship game, ESPN's Heather Cox asked Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston about the sexual assault case he walked away from with no charges.

She didn't ask if he did it, she asked what he learned and why he kept silent. 
He walked away.
Now some say she went too far. I say, she didn't go far enough. All I can say now is she has nothing to apologize for and if ESPN makes her say she's sorry, they suck!
