"All the jokes, it hurt at first. Now, I don’t care. I laugh, too... I don’t know how I survived."

In case you are wondering how Lorena Bobbitt is doing.

It's not easy being everybody's punchline.

ADDED: This made me think of the New York Magazine article I just saw, "Here’s How Women Artists Are Reacting to a Donald Trump Presidency." It had this illustration:

Lorena Bobbitt and Monica Lewinsky would make a great headline act in Vegas.

Making the world better one penis at a time.

The jokes hurt.

Laslo Spatula said...

Cut off a man's penis and you are a punchline.

Cut off a woman's clitoris and you are a Muslim.

I am Laslo.

James said...

Poor woman, all she ever did was violently mutilate another person. As long as the victim is male, it's okay to laugh!

"Now we see the violence is inherent in the system!"

I had to look it up to make sure, but Lorena Bobbit was acquitted. She served no time in prison for what she did. And what she did was barbaric. Yes her husband apparently mistreated her, and cheated on her. And she was isolated because she didn't speak english well, but it in now way justifies what she did.

What kind of punishment would a man get if he found out his wife was cheating on him, and he cut of her labia and clitoris as revenge? I think we all know the answer.

Understanding what motivated her to her actions is one thing. But asking for sympathy for her is a bit too much.

As an aside I don't think it is shocking to anyone that society doesn't really care about domestic violence against men committed by their women partners, but my sense is that society also doesn't really care about domestic violence against gay men, nor domestic violence against lesbian women.

Only straight man on straight woman violence matters in our society.

There's an old joke about a guy who can list many truly amazing accomplishments in his life.

The punch line is: "but you fuck one goat....."

Laslo Spatula said...

" It had this illustration..."

Yes, yes, raining cocks.

But does no one else see the white polka dots on her dress as semen?

Bukkake is everywhere.

I am Laslo.

My son was on duty at a Prince Bill County Firehouse the day, listening on the tac net. They were using dogs to hunt for the item when someone asked if that was a good idea. It was decided to be not a good idea.

Rick said...

Much of the media portrayed Bobbitt as a crazed, vengeful woman who had perpetrated every man’s worst nightmare.

It's interesting to note the author seems to think she's written something which disproves this. Since when does having a reason for your vengeance negate the fact that it is vengeance? The existence of a reason seems common even if it's not absolutely necessary to make the word applicable.

EDH said...

I remember when I moved in you, the holy dove was moving too... and every breath we drew was Hallelujah.

It's Raining Men

It's raining men, hallelujah, it's raining men, amen
I'm gonna go out and let myself get
Absolutely soaking wet
It's raining men, hallelujah
It's raining men, every specimen
Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean

Bob Boyd said...

A hard rain's a-gonna fall

chickelit said...

So, Trump is elected and all that artist can think about is free dildos from heaven and self gratification?

chickelit said...

A hard rain's a-gonna fall

Heh. Good one, Bob Boyd.

chickelit said...

Another suggested tittle for that piece: "The Reign of Dicks"

Better than raining frogs

RightIsRight said...

I think those penes are rather large for such small hands.

Martin said...

I know a lot of women, including many who voted for Clinton and were very disappointed in the election results--and not a one has ever said anything to even remotely suggest she sees herself as ikf under an umbrella with severed penises raining down.

The coastal "elite" really has lost its mind. The only question, and it is a real question, is whether they lost it on election night, or some time before but were able to fake being normal until the loss on November 8 destroyed their self-control so we are now seeing the pathology that was there all along.

Seeing Red said...

We recent watched Hysteria.

Vibrators are white privilege.

William said...

Lorena has completely upstaged Emma Stone.......Rich, beautiful movie stars should accept the fact that they have enviable lives and never, ever complain about anything in public.

Bill Peschel said...

At least there's a diversity of dicks.

I just don't know fuck-all about its meaning. And so far, Trump's given a lot of high-level appointments to women.

Charlie Currie said...

I thought the picture was from the University of Texas sex toys gun protest.

Comanche Voter said...

Ah Lorena--on the cutting edge of comedy.

walter said...

If the rain comes
They run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
If the rain comes
If the rain comes
When the sun shines
They slip into the shade
And sip their lemonade
When the sun shines
When the sun shines
Rain, I don't mind
Shine, the weather's fine
I can show you
That when it starts to rain
Everything's the same
I can show you
I can…

rhhardin said...

The umbrella is a cervical cap.

Mary Beth said...

The Vault Dweller, refresh your memory. It wasn't because he was cheating.

I agree that what she did was violent and barbaric, but don't trivialize his behavior.

AlbertAnonymous said...

How many women artists did they talk to? Same garbage they do in the other direction. One Trump supporter is David Duke... Bingo "This is what Trump supporters look like!"

I'm sure there are women artists out there that are reacting differently. As with most issues, I'm sure there are views all across the spectrum.

Steven said...

You can see some serious blinders in action when the take on the topic of "Lorena Bobbit and domestic violence" doesn't notice that mutilating your sleeping spouse is domestic violence.

walter said...

"One would look to Lorena cutting off her husband's penis as self defense because in the words of Lorena Bobbitt's lawyer "It was the penis from which she could not escape" and "It had caused her the most pain and the most fear."[33] In other words to Lorena Bobbitt, John Bobbitt's penis was a weapon used to hurt Lorena and Lorena attempted to stop the abuse by taking away the weapon."

Earnest Prole said...

Maybe “Sausage Party” was funnier than I originally thought.

walter said...

She was simply making it a penis free zone.

Bill said...

"I don't know how I survived."

I don't know how her ex-husband's penis survived!

Trumpit said...

Penis mutilation of infants is still all the rage in the United States. The foreskin is there for a reason; it has protective and sexual functions, obviously. If I were Trump, I would pass an executive order protecting male babies from the procedure, as it is a basic violation of human rights.

I blame, as much as anyone, the medical profession for promoting circumcision. It is a moneymaker for doctors and hospitals. How much does the procedure cost? See here for an idea: http://health.costhelper.com/circumcision.html

My parents are both dead, yet I still blame them for mutilating me at birth. I'm sure that it was an automatic decision at the time based on cultural reasons, but it is still unforgivable.

Michael K said...

Once again, the most acute observation is to be found in the Hot Crazy Matrix.

Lorena was a definite "No Go Zone" chick and probably well above the "Crazy Line."

Proceed at your own risk.

Michael K said...

"I blame, as much as anyone, the medical profession for promoting circumcision."

There are valid reasons on both sides but fools seem to choose one side with no information.

There are historic and prehistoric for taboos and cultural practices but idiots usually have no idea.

Why did Jews ban pork ? If you knew nothing about Trichinella spiralis, you might think it irrational.

There are all sorts of taboos and cultural norms that began with observations.

Phimosis and penile cancer are two that dopes know nothing about. It was not an evil plot.

Mary Beth said...The Vault Dweller, refresh your memory. It wasn't because he was cheating.

What were the specific accusations? looks like he was acquitted of her claim of rape.

Bill said...

It's raining dildos, Hallelujah!

James Pawlak said...

When my daughters began to bud-out as young women I taught them some useful techniques---Including how to use a "castrating knife".

Perhaps the problem of real rape might be best dealt with in that manner. Of course, UW would have to allow its students to be armed and to execute their Natural Law and statutory rights to self-defense.

It's hard for her to even finish a sentence...some dick is always cutting her off.

Arthur James said...

There is another ridiculous photo from the article of an African American woman on her knees crying with the staff of an American flag piercing through her. It is obvious Liberals must see themselves as victims. Maybe it was me, yet I read several articles on the website, finding an overall tone of whining about everything. This is the end of an article on the Rockettes being forced by their union to dance at the inauguration.

Though a widely circulated social media post suggests that Rockettes are being threatened with termination if they refuse to perform, the AVGA email does not specify consequences, only strongly alluding to employment requirements. Given Trump’s extraordinarily disturbing record with sexual conduct, the situation is garnering particular attention as objecting women face the prospect of literally being forced to dance for the President-elect.

I bet they would dance for Bill Clinton. These poor objecting, or objectifying, women will be forced to allow President Trump to leer at them. I hope he is closely monitored, insuring he never looks at one individual for more than fifteen seconds.

David Begley said...

The Left is completely unhinged. Glad the whole world can now see this.

Both my parents are dead also. I harbor no ill will at all for their decision and am more streamlinded as a result.

jaed said...

The illustration reminds me of that group who for some reason "protested" concealed carry on Texas campuses by waving dildoes (??).

Out-of-place artistic representations of disembodied penises. Something like that.

southcentralpa said...

All I can think of is the B-52 WSO (bombardier) tersely announcing "Schlongs away!"

ceowens said...

RE: The lady in the polka dot dress.

It appears that all of her "raindrops" were mutilated shortly after birth.

mikee said...

My wife, a physician, made one and only one comment on the Lorena Bobbit story back when it occurred. "She used pinking shears, so no way it will be reattached."

That day, that moment, I gained an amazing amount of respectful fear of my spouse, and what she keeps deep within her private soul, and I have beheld that awesome woman in the same light ever since.
