Not Funny

I really have never understood the concept of the “hate fuck;” it’s way too close to rape in spirit, and…blech. I don’t judge what goes on in someone’s head, and as long as these thoughts stay in your head, fine, but still…yuck.

But going to the next level and actually writing an article naming conservative women you’d like to “hate fuck” is a whole ‘nother level of vile, and actually paying someone for that article is awful, even if you’re Playboy. I mean, I dislike Michele Bachmann as much as the next sentient being, but throwing out sexual fantasies about her while opining that she makes “chemical castration…look appealing” is odious beyond odious.

And it goes without saying that nobody’s written a hate-fuck list naming, say, Rick Santorum.

This is seven kinds of despicable, and it is a reminder that there are plenty of fauxgressives running around who somehow think one can be a good liberal and still hate women. One can’t. By all means, attack the politics of Malkin, Coulter, Ingraham and Bachmann. But do so by attacking their politics, not by asserting that their vaginas make them an inviting target for defiling.

Oh, and by the way, Hot Air, while I appreciate that you’ve discovered misogyny, you guys might want to also police yourselves. Arguing that liberal women aren’t hot is not the way to prove you’re sensitive to women.

    This really hurts me…in a way I don’t have words for. It seems way too close to rape to read it, and I don’t care if he’s conservative/liberal/anything, you do not violate the sanctity of someone’s being in jest. Bah, I’m going to hide in my corner now. I’m having a real reaction to this.

    This article is poignant as it precedes an article about how sexually-entitled men in other countries use rape as a weapon.

    I guess some dudes here in the US would “like” to do the same thing, they’re just wary about the consequences.

    At least Playboy realized they’d screwed up and yanked the article within a day of posting it. It’s just disturbing that no one there could figure this out for himself and had to wait for the collective “WTF?!” of the blogosphere.

    Bonnie Erbe of U. S. News and World Report has posted an article on this. She said in general that while the politics of the women involved are opposed to her, she would still stand up for them.

    Except …

    I also want to note that at least one woman on the list is so venom-spewing, she unfortunately invites venom to be shot back at her: Michelle Malkin. Her posts and her “routine” are so venomous and predictable, in fact, I stopped paying attention to her years ago.

    So apparenty Michelle Malkin asked for it.
