According to Spike.com legal sources and a very large sign at my favorite gentlemen’s club, “strippers are people too.” Shocking, right? Apparently they have feelings, occasionally legitimate social security numbers and the ability to fill out prescription Herpes medication just like everybody else. So, why does society question their right to date NFL quarterbacks with two sexual assault convictions under their belts?
Kristina Green (or “Nikko,” as she’s known to people who shove dollar bills down her g-string at 3:00 a.m.) has reportedly been dating Roethlisberger for quite some time.
And, oddly enough, people seem to have a problem with this.
Granted, had Big Ben not been recently accused of sexual assault for the second time before his 29th birthday, his romantic interludes with exotic dancers would not be relevant news. However, when facing the possibility of jail time for crimes against women, it’s not exactly a situation that endears you to America.
Besides the girl accusing Roethlisberger of rape, the real victim here is a stripper with a heart of gold, whose chance at true love with an NFL quarterback is suddenly in jeopardy.
It’s sort of like Cinderella, only with more nudity and rape accusations. (Plus in the world of Disney, the Steelers probably would have made the playoffs this year.)
