A nude image of a professional woman wants to break the social trust between her and the social sphere and discredit her professional competence. The aim is to appoint to her character and personality weakness, vulnerability, lack of self-control and consequently capacity for sound judgement a prerequisite for hard decision making processes and dilemmas.
A sexual assault allegation against a professional man provides him with social power as it demonstrates that he owns the hard qualities required for positions of power.
This move was predictable! Politics is dirty game of manipulation of social and cultural images and constructs.
