Dominique Strauss-Kahn Liked To Refer To Women As “Luggage”

A transcript from police questioning this week shows that former World Bank head Dominique Strauss-Kahn copped to using “inappropriate” nicknames for women while texting colleagues about “night clubs” he was attending. And what nicknames were these? “Luggage” and “gifts,” according to a report today from Le Monde.
But it’s not that he thought these women were objects or something — nooooo. He used those words because he “said it was quicker than listing out all the names” in a text message, according to a NY Post report. This is weird, since “luggage” in any language take a lot longer to type than oh, I dunno, “Liz” or “Ann” or “Mary” or “Sue” or “Alex” or “Jen.” Or, oh, also “women.” And “bagage” takes just as long to type as “femmes.” (Thanks Apple translate!) Not that semantics are the biggest of our DSK-related issues, but still.
These gal pals of his must have long names. Or, perhaps, there were just too damn many of them he was meeting at once. Both options are of the unsavory variety.
The questioning came after French authorities slapped Strauss-Kahn with an “aggravated pimping” charge. Sounds fake — but it’s a real thing.
