Sharon Osbourne and Crew, Carved into Strips and Deep-Fried in Acid
This is why I can't possibly get fussed about it, when I hear men making mildly "sexist" or "chauvinistic" remarks about women. In all honesty, I have never heard men saying anything nearly as vile about women, as these BIMBOS are saying about the husband of Katherine Kieu Becker. Well, only rarely. Very rarely. And sure as hell not on prime time television! Seriously now, suppose that some guy in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, tied up his girlfriend and carved her clit off with a ginzu knife. What do you reckon the fate of Jay Leno would be, if he delivered a yukkety-yuk monologue about this incident? You and I know perfectly well, that Jay Leno would be spectacularly fired from his job and spend the rest of his life under a dark, stinking cloud of disgrace.
However, what stinks most of all here is the rotten double standard. I presume that you all smell it as keenly as I do.
Now, who can forget the collective roar of female approval that arose when Lorena Bobbitt did her bloody business years ago? What do you think, does it mean all or most women are really as bad as you might conclude? Well., no. I'd rather think the poet summed it up best, that "the best lack all conviction, and the worst are full of passionate intensity." Which is still quite the hellhole of a situation, don't you think so?
So gents, feel free to say all of the mildly sexist and mildly chauvinistic or generally snarky things about women that you feel inclined to say. If the festivities never get any worse than this, then women in general and feminists in particular can frankly suck it up. What's fair for the gander is fair for the goose. Equality of snarking opportunity, all the way! I will not personally join in, but I won't be harsh on you at all. I will not judge you. I understand that your feelings are existentially honest, and real, and flow from a place of existential honesty and reality within you.
Yes brothers, I understand that you need to vent. And I wouldn't dream of stopping up the safety valve on a steam boiler.
