Mel Gibson teaches us that Americans are more roused by racism than misogyny (or breasts).

There's so much talk of Mel's "racist rant." I listened. Although he most certainly says the n-word and says it in a line that suggests contempt for black men, the rant is all about the woman's purportedly fake breasts. The hatred is squarely aimed at the (white) woman.

A feminist issue.

Gibson is a drunk fueled by his
Dad,in his earlier life, to blame jews for killing Jesus. As TG said, the Itaians killed Jesus.

Althouse :

You gotta lot of balls abandoning your readers for an entire weekend! The good news is Jeremy & Alpha and Garage and FLS were very happy to form a circle jerk.

The bad news is DTL and Hdhouse were not invited.

Naomi Wolf, for the love of God, is nearly a charlatan. She'll pin herself onto any pseudo-theory for personal gain.

LOL! Your quip "It's just Hollywood." brought this one to mind.

So far, no comments on her theory that porn turns men off the real thing.. That young women are having to compete with unrealistic version of themselves.. and are losing.

@AL "The Dem Party is still dominated by white males to this day.

Um...wouldn't an obvious first step to remove the impediment and social injustice of racism and sexism be that white males leave the party?

*Snert* *Giggle* *Guffah!*

Sorry, carry on.

BJM said...

@Lem

As usual, Wolf is full of crap. Does anyone here know a man who would prefer watching porn to having sex? No. Some might prefer the sex and porn together...but in my experience, men will hit the real thing every time it's proffered.

Just sayin'

"Bullshit."

There, I commented.

Lem said...

"Bullshit."

Why is the "celebrity sex tape" such a trend in celebrity circles?
Could it have something to do with the pervasiveness of porn?

We might not want to talk about it, but there is no hiding it..

It has got to be having an effect.

The incident with Mel (women having to show more) is a reflection of that.

Lem said...

I think a Kinsey Report of today's human sexual behavior would read very, very differently.

Sadly, nobody seems willing to take up the challenge.. its really outdated.

What trend?

No, it has something to do with the pervasiveness of video cameras.

Well, duh. OJ. Obama v Hillary. Done. Gender issues have even deeper roots than race imo. Guys are eager to discuss the race issue under the cover of bro-mance gone wrong, but the women? Fuck em. That's something they can agree on.

When I was a somewhat naive freshman, I once sat in an all night laundromat. There was a short, wussy, white liberal guy and a black guy in a suit. The black guy was pissed. He was ranting about THE MAN. The white liberal guy was eager to agree with him.

Then he switched to "and women, women can walk three steps behind me," etc. The liberal white guys was all barely squeaked, "Oh, I don't know. I know some women who I should walk three steps behind."

I guess I should have been happy he even did that. Many wouldn't.

I learned a lesson that day that unfortunately has been repeated over and over.

What annoys me is that women are such IDIOTS about the reality of it. If they clue in at all it's usually when they are older, so there is really no hope because it'll just go back to square 1 - okay maybe square 1.5, I'll be positive, with every generation.

You're going to hold THAT against him? Maybe 25% of hollywood's HISTORICAL movies are remotely accurate. Most use composite characters to represent multiple people change history for dramatic effect or just out and out make stuff up.It's Hollywood after all.

Hollywood making innacurate historical movies is about as ubiquitous as Obama surrounding himself with fringe leftist/communists for all of his political life.

Porn has two huge advantages over real women:
The On button
The Mute button

I do know that when I watch a cooking show, I get hungry and usually eat whatever I have on hand, regardless of the quality.

A liar calling someone else a liar about their movie? How the fuck can you stand to look at yourself in a mirror with the lies you tell hourly.

knox said...

at least the discussion hasn't yet descended into what types of blackberries people prefer.

Oh, shit, I've started it now. Someone's going to start talking about the type that grow on trees, versus the type that grow on bushes; and someone else will point out that those tree-borne berries aren't blackberries at all, but are some other fucking sort of berry, and how great they are on pancakes.

LMAO.

JAL said...

How were the blackberries -- or whatever you had for dessert last night, Pastafarian?

Pastafarian said...

Glad you asked, JAL.

We went to a nice place -- Joseph Decuis in Roanoke, Indiana, and we had the chef's tasting menu. Dessert consisted of a passion fruit sorbet, and rice pudding. The only berries I recall were huckleberries, I think, in the foie gras.

It was really good. I've been to fancy places in Chicago and San Francisco, and this place in little Roanoke is actually comparable.

Oh, and then I had other dessert later, too. I'm too much of a gentleman to go into details, but it involved Mrs. Pastafarian in a little French maid outfit. That was really good too.

JAL said...

@ Pasta

I was being discreet.

Dear Mel:

Memo from Althouse:

It's only possible to hate one person/group of people at once.

I am glad that I am not put under the microscope when I fly off on a rant.

... Don't mind me I am just the pest control guy.
