Why are so many top misogynists such wimps?

Postby friendlyskies » Mon Feb 13, 2012 3:11 pm

So, I was watching Rick Santorum talk about how women shouldn't work, because it's a feminist plot to undermine the family or whatever, and besides, it's more efficient to let men do the work because they are better at it etc etc.

OK you socialist parasite, how in the world do you expect the work to get done?

I mean, that soft-palmed, lardass girlyman couldn't even do my job, even if he were smart enough to learn a second language! Can you imagine him pulling, say, combat duty like so many women already do? It's insulting. Feminism aside, just think about what that limp-wristed little Christian would do if I left him in a bad part of San Salvador without some real men (say, the Salvadoran military, which has allowed openly gay soldiers to serve for decades), or me, to protect him. He'd start crying and windmilling like a debate-team reject before he even got the first chapter of a guidebook written!

It's unreal. Why is this guy, of all the men in the world, becoming the leading spokesperson for misogyny? I know women that could have him down for the count without smudging their makeup. (Fact: I know a woman who runs a martial arts studio and is a multiple black belt in various fighting techniques that I can neither remember nor pronounce.) It's a joke.

God. And don't even get me started on the fucking Catholic Church. These pudgy little men in dresses, some of them pedophiles and all of them led by a former Nazi who ran and hid like a bitch when the Red Army rolled in and raped his country's women for sport, are seriously going to sit there and tell me that women are weaker than men? Weaker at what? Weaker at choosing which gold-brocade silk hat matches which exquisite Italian shoes? Weaker at reading one book over and over again, because they aren't bright enough to comprehend evolutionary theory? Weaker at not having a real job and living off the tithes of women who do work for a living, 98% of whom have used some form of birth control in their lives?

It's amazing. Just fucking amazing.

Seriously. This guy - THIS GUY - thinks he's tougher than I am because he has
a penis. No. His tits are bigger than mine, I'll give him that, but the rest of
it is so far beyond delusional.....

It's not just Rick Santorum, either.

OK, maybe there's a good reason why hard-core pro-Lifer and current Presidential candidate Randall Terry is wearing
a calf-length mink coat, but all I can come up with is that his son was openly gay and perhaps that's a hereditary thing.
Anyway, I realize you canbe anti-abortion and not a true misogynist, but that's not what this guy is about - he wants
women who get abortions to be charged with first degree murder and executed, I'm pretty sure he said women shouldn't
vote, etc etc. And.... just not an alpha male, is he.

And let me be clear here. I'm distinguishing between your day-to-day sexism and being vocally, actively against equal rights for women. You know, like how there are people who tell racist jokes or make subconscious assumptions based on race, and then there are those who join the Ku Klux Klan or skinheads or whatever. Most people, even most women, are going to be a little bit sexist. It's embedded in the culture. Machismo. And there's a big kernel of truth to it - traditional division of labor is efficient, women are on average physically weaker, etc etc. Whatever.

I'm talking about these assholes who say women shouldn't vote, or try to keep poor women from getting access to inexpensive birth control, or try to bring down women using sexism, that kind of thing. Especially the birth control thing. I've always gone to Planned Parenthood for cheap pills/gyno exams, and it's not like they give you a free abortion with every breast screening. Even the offices that give abortions (most of them don't) usually only do that one day a week, the other six days are for medical care. Often there's only one office in the state that provides abortion, because the religious conservatives are powerful politically. Which is just sadistic - what's the point of forcing someone to travel for five hours on either side of an abortion? You're not going to stop her with a fucking bus ride. You're just punishing her.

But that's not even what Planned Parenthood is about. For instance, we were having a party and needed things to put in the piñata, and they gave us free condoms because we were technically helping them distribute condoms. That was their main mission back in the late 1980s early 1990s, remember? The govt was too busy with Iran-Contra and Kuwait to bother distributing condoms, during the AIDS crisis. Besides, these motherfuckers know that you can't make abortion illegal anymore, not really, because the RU486 French abortion pill is one of the most heavily trafficked drug in the Americas, Latin America has that network in place. They'll just include those with the shipments of cocaine and Mexican red-haired ditch weed.

Sorry. I have to rant about this. The GOP is pissing me off. Ron Paul wanted to audit the Fed, cut some departments, roll back the patriot act and military-industrial complex wars, build that shale pipeline thing, and, admittedly, criminalize abortion. But now the whole GOP message is basically, "Abortion, homosexuality, and socialism are sins, and women are supposed to be wives and mothers and trust men to run the show. Fact. Not only have these things demonstrably led to the degradation of society, but God is also punishing us for abandoning his teachings, hence all of our problems. If we just redomesticate women, eradicate taxes and labor laws, and exploit our natural resources as quickly as possible, God will shower us with blessings, like he did back in America's tri-corner hatted golden age, when a Black, Muslim president would have been unthinkable. The end."

Right? Doesn't that pretty much sum it up? I think we can all agree, right or left, that auditing the Fed is an awesome idea, right? But that idea has evaporated in a puff of straw polls. No, instead let's discuss why giving a bunch of bishops a voice in the health care debate makes sense. Sure, there are a lot of Catholic hospitals, so I can see some kind of Church representation, but what about hospital administrators? I bet a lot of them are women.

Misogynists are wimps because they are intimidated by women.

But there are also women out there that do not respect men at all unless that man shows a certain amount of contempt for them, so there is also a re-enforcement factor at work in misogyny.

Two workplaces ago about 1/2 of the women I worked with did not trust female politicians and would argue why most women (not them) should just stay at home and have babies. Quite often behind every faulty man is a number of faulty women.

How do you pronounce Misogynists?

I have a horrible lateral syllable displacement so I cannot pronounce it without having woman haters laugh at me.

The GOP has played a stupid game for some time. By kowtowing to about 20% of the electorate which is very socially conservative. Running on issues such as law and order,sexuality issues,drugs,and religion,etc. Social consevatives are highly motivated politically and the economic conservatives in the GOP uesd them to gain power and then used their "mandate" to cut social security and give the rich tax breaks. Now the chickens are coming home to roost. Serves them right. So now you have idiots like Santorum with "credibility". That's fucked.

Interesting point. A single one in the right place will do it for most guys though; look at Randy Quaid.

Dog biscuit for Fenrisco for the wittiest quote of the week.
