Feminists: Stick THIS in Your Garbage Disposal Mind and Chew On It!!
Sit back and savor this lovely YouTube video. It looks like I was at least a little bit wrong; things haven't changed so much since the Bobbitt case after all. Well, all right, the response is more muted in general -- but the same attitude is present, simmering a very short distance below the surface.
While you are watching the video and enjoying the jolly, clever, scintillating banter of these women, do bear in mind that these are NOT radical feminist weirdos -- they are bright, (superficially) attractive regular gals from the middleclass mainstream. So, for the sake of calibration, I'd also like to hear what the radical feminist weirdos are saying.
Anyhow, having witnessed this, I could not in good faith and good conscience object to the proceedings if some dudes on a talk show acted similarly about a story where a man did a kitchen knife cliterodectomy on his wife.
It's all about symmetry and proportionality. If such be permitted for the goose, it is permissible for the gander. At least in theory.
