Atlas Shrugged: The Mocking

Thursday, July 31, 2008

Excellent!

Some people might say that it's unkind or out of line to mock conservative women, as I often do. Fortunately, one of them said it's perfectly okay, and joking about "those stupid women!" is even worth defending.

Is it Still Legal to Make a Joke Like That? [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

My plane is late. Man next to me says: "It must be a woman pilot. Women
are always late. She must be doing her nails."

Thanks, K-Lo. It's nice to get the Vatican Medal of Approval, With Virgin Clusters and Fig Leaf.

Yes, saying stupid stuff like that is still legal. Unfortunately, it's also still not funny.

She'll never know. K-Lo won't be happy until she abases herself into non-existence.

She could have at least retorted back with something as equally stereotypical and demeaning, like "or maybe it's a male pilot who's drunk and trying to finger one of the flight attendants?" She didn't have to celebrate the guy's remark.

I guess we're lucky she didn't kneel down on the floor on all fours to provide him with a footrest.

I have to wonder what her parents did to her to destroy any sense at all of self-respect. It must have been horrible. I'd feel sorry for her if she weren't in a postion of power.
