If you’ve written anything in support of feminism, women, or just happen to be a person who identifies female on the internet, here’s the 14 types of sexist comments (or anons) you’re guaranteed to get.
An anti-gay, opposite-sex married Indiana state lawmaker offered a young man he met through a Craigslist M4M section $80 to meet for a hookup at a local Marriott hotel, and when the young man tried to back out of the deal, exposed himself and tried to prevent him from leaving the hotel room, according to a report in the Indianapolis Star.
The six-term, 64-year old Catholic, Republican lawmaker, Rep. Phillip Hinkle, has voted against same-sex marriage, and even voted to ban marriage equality via a constitutional amendment.
The Star recounts the entire event in great detail, from the time the young man, Kameryn Gibson, “who lists his age as 20 in the ad but says he is 18 years old,” is contacted by Hinkle, to Hinkle’s email address, to details of the email exchanges, and includes statements that Hinkle offered the young man and his sister — who came to rescue her brother once the deal went awry — $100, along with his Blackberry and iPad. Later, Hinkle’s wife reportedly offered the brother and sister $10,000 to keep quiet.
As one of my friends always says, “Shock. Gasp. Clutch the pearls.” The interesting wrinkle here is the wife offering $10,000 to the brother and sister to keep quiet - perhaps she knew of her husband’s dalliances?
This is why Republican sex scandals are just so much more, well, scandalous. They seem to usually involve the family values crowd, who campaign on limiting rights for GLBTQ people and women, and then these politicians are invariably involved in extramarital relationships with the very people they wish to oppress. Do as I say, not as I screw.
Here’s some free advice: If you can’t keep it in your pants, keep it off the internet. You will get caught otherwise. The internet is forever.
And PORN! The internet brings ALL THE PORNS EVER!
My website is censored in much of China. How about yours?
So this happened… Check out more nuggets o’ wisdom from JarJar.
Wow. This just goes to show that not all my haters are conservative, but they all have something in common…
It’s none of your business what I’m doing with my name, but since you asked so weirdly, I’m hyphenating.
As for barefoot and pregnant…
Or at least not paying attention. Do I seem all anxious to get knocked up? There’s too much left to do in my life. Plus, I can’t just leave dishes of food and water on the floor and take off all day. For some reason, the law thinks doing that for my cats makes me responsible but doing that for a baby is neglect. Fuck, man, I’d leave food and water, but they’d still have an issue … so yeah, no kids right now.
I’m assuming you’re progressive. Progressives usually advocate for reproductive rights and choice. If choosing to be barefoot and pregnant offends you, perhaps you need to look up the definition of choice again.
Painting a picket fence?
We don’t have a picket fence. Was that a requirement to get married? As for the fence, I hope he would paint it because I think he’d do a better job.
As for buying into the heteronormative establishment in this country…
I don’t have to justify my choices to you. I also question why you would choose to slam me for getting married, as if this completely transformed me into June Cleaver on Valium, placidly placing the roast on the table at 5 p.m. every night. No more activism, opinions or free will…
Yeah, one big reason Andrew married me is for who I am, not who he thinks I could be magically transformed into via a marriage license and a ring. Uh, I’m still the same person, just married now.
Frankly, it sounds like you just wanted to come in and try to rain on my parade here. Not sure why.
Or don’t. My husband is actually pretty progressive himself. We’re kind of a dynamic duo. There’s plenty of people happy for us, and I find it pretty hard to care about your bizarre complaint.
