18 Feminism is so confusing.

They march for the right to dress like sluts and then complain about being represented in fiction dressed like sluts.

Is the rule that women are allowed to dress like sluts, but men aren't allowed to notice?

In my bookstore days you wouldn't believe how many women bought a stack of lurid romances while announcing they'd just die if their friends knew about this purchase. If they web had existed back then I'd have taken down names off the checks and credit cards to run in a sting page. Perhaps set up a hidden camera for further evidence.

I'm going to take a wild guess and assume that the female protagonists who are posing on these books, by nature of their being heroines, are supposed to be more flexible, fit, attractive and generally better at everything than a typical 38-year old schlub with a bald head and a goofy beard. I mean, I get what he's saying -- the breast-waist-hip ratio on some of these illustrated women is physically impossible sometimes, and some of the positions they stand in are just painful -- but it's such a stupid thing to obsess over.

The only guys I've ever seen who look like the illustrated Conan the Barbarian are 'roided up monsters who'd never be able to swing a battleaxe without tearing something. So do you want to try modeling THOSE poses, too, sir?

Leftists are unable to process two ideals at once. You cannot be both attractive and awe-inspiring, for example. It incurs cognitive dissonance in a moonbat's brain.

Guns cannot both destroy and protect. Cognitive dissonance.

You cannot earn wealth and give freely to charity. Cognitive dissonance.

I'm offended that he's offended. So there.

But, really, does he not realize that he's complaining about the Heroine being portrayed as sexy? Would he complain if the main character were male and was portrayed as sexy?

Does he complain when Chris Hemsworth takes off his shirt in Thor, or that Gerard Butler walked around shirtless for the entirety of 300?

There are trillions of dollars siting in 401Ks. They can't touch that money because they know if they go and clean out 401Ks, there WILL be a revolt.

Take away the guns though, and how are you going to resist.

As stated and restated, it isn't Gun Control they want, just plain old 'control'. Would-be dictators are always the same. The methods to get there vary but the reasons are the same.

I hope Jesus is planning his return soon.

218 I hate to admit that I still lurk at metafilter, but this kind of crap is HUGE there now, bigger than raising awareness about H.P Lovecraft being racist.

219 I wonder if it has occurred to this vagina challenged fellow that us chicks who enjoy adventure and fantasy fiction are drawn in by these covers too? Furthermore if he know anything about women he would have discovered that we gals spend a lot of time looking at other women. I bet we spend just about as much time looking, admiring, judging other women as men do. Women on the cover of something will not decrease the sales to women. (See all women's magazines ever published)

220 Isn't the point he is really making , (and not the point he only thinks he's making), is that hot sexy women are hot and sexy, whereas he is not?

To make the point he's trying to make, he first has to concede the point that the artwork he finds offensive, is actually very good for what it is. It only looks stupid when he does it, which is to say, he looks stupid. OK, point taken, dude. You look stupid.

That's what I get out of it.

222 This is must be what the Roman Empire looked like to the Visigoths when they were circling the drain.
