  • The irony is sad, the systemic nature of this problem is overwhelming. We put guns in the hands of these people and send them overseas where we tell them they’re basically above the law. Why do they behave as if they’re above the personal rights of others? It’s not that difficult to figure out. Rape [...]

    Breslaw’s article really had me right up until the end. Tina Fey having a distaste for sex workers or women who would have affairs with married men doesn’t make her anti-woman or a ”faux” feminist.

    The final two paragraphs in the article were completely hyperbolic and far-reaching. I don’t particularly care for sex work either, I recognize it as a valid vocation that deserves equal protection under our laws but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with it. It’s just like someone who agrees with marijuana legalization but doesn’t smoke themself, IMHO. Lastly, if pointing out that it takes two to tango as far as extramarital affairs are concerned is considered ”slut shaming” now I’m pretty shocked. Men get their share of criticism for having affairs from men and women, why can’t the other woman be criticized?

    I really appreciate the fact that Tina Fey has brought a lot of attention to gender equality and feminism, I don’t think her attitudes on what she finds (in)appropriate behaviors disqualify her feminism or reduce her impact. Just my 2 cents. :-)
