Playboy: Now With More Misogyny!

What do these women have in common?

  • Michelle Malkin
  • Megyn Kelly
  • Mary Katharine Ham
  • Amanda Carpenter
  • Elisabeth Hasselbeck
  • Dana Perino
  • Laura Ingraham
  • Pamela Geller
  • Michele Bachmann
  • Peggy Noonan

They’re conservative women that Playboy writer Guy Cimbalo would like to hate f***.

“So Right It’s Wrong” is the title of the vile, foul-mouthed piece in which each of the women profiled is given a hate f*** rating.  Cimbalo manages to squeeze all four stages of conservative female abuse into his vile emesis – infantilization, sexualization, demonization, and dehumanization – and gets extra points for the sexual exoticization of a conservative woman with the audacity to be something other than white.

Michelle Malkin, for instance, is labeled a “highly f***able Filipina” and purveyor of “frothing idiocy.” Her hate f*** rating? “Worse than f***ing Eva Braun.” And “rancid shrew” Laura Ingraham’s hate f*** rating?  “Vagina dentata would be an improvement.

Of course, in Cimbalo’s serial rape fantasy, the women are, quite literally, asking for it.  There’s nothing they want more than for Guy Cimbalo to teach them a sexually degrading lesson.  Apparently “bilious simpleton” Elisabeth Hasselbeck “wouldn’t mind putting [her Catholic school uniform] on before taking it off for a session of sweaty, anti-American hate f***ing.  And Malkin’s “tight body and get-off-my-lawn stare just scream, ‘Do me!’”

Not all of them are begging for it though.  Cimbalo admits that he’d have to get Peggy Noonan liquored up before she’d be pliant enough for some “Cheever-esque hate f***ing.”

Today I should be writing about the First Amendment restrictions being called for by liberal writers in the wake of the heinous assassination of abortion doctor George Tiller.  I’m itching to weigh in on Sonia Sotomayor’s flawed “critical legal studies” approach to the law. And I have pieces in the works on atheism and sex education.

Instead, I’m sitting here replacing the letters u, c, and k with asterisks as if I can somehow make Guy Cimbalo’s euphemism for rape easier to stomach.

Hat tip: Cap’n Ed at Hot Air

Update: Less than a full day online and the article has already been pulled from Playboy.com.  They probably believed that line about no one reading the articles anyway, and were shocked to discover there were people paying attention.

Update 2: From Smart Girl Politics:

Smart Girl Politics calls on Playboy Magazine and Guy Cimbalo to issue apologies to all of the women mentioned in the article. Further, we call on all self-identified feminists to join with us in condemning attacks like this, which seek only to humiliate and degrade women.

Update 3: Not Tucker Carlson links as part of a roundup of posts on the Playboy nastiness.

And Murphy at Puma PAC links with a scathing post on the entrenched misogyny rampant on the left.  To Murphy’s commentary, I would add that liberal women have participated in this vile behavior too – remember Margaret Cho’s rape fantasy about Sarah Palin?  Diehard liberalism (or diehard conservatism for that matter) does not come with a Get Out Of Jail Free card for misogynists and a vote for Obama doesn’t insulate cads from being called out on their despicable anti-woman sentiments.

And welcome to my new visitors from Puma PAC!

    All Liberals are secretly racist and misogynists. It’s built into their Marxist based pseudo-theology which strips away the notion that people can own property (including their own bodies) and that individualism and non-conformity are in actuality worse crimes than rape.

    I just hope when they eventually arrest him for the actual rapes he no doubt partakes in that he gets a dose of his own fantasy in prison.

    Ahhh, so I’m not the only troll anymore. And clearly not the best, either. Such a wonderfully provocative statement, the sort of thing that might inspire a reaction of some kind from some Marxist cabal. Brave the way he risks speaking out so clearly against leftist tyranny so powerful that it has subverted the nation. Such a heroic young patriot. He forgot to mention that it’s part of international Jewish conspiracy, so we’d all know to take him seriously.

    Of course, it DOES sound like something Michelle Malkin would say. Though she probably would have had an explanation about the secret terrorist statement implicit in Michelle Obama’s sleeveless dresses instead of the international Jewish conspiracy… and then end up getting sued by Dunkin Donuts.

    On a more serious note, if hardly more serious of import, it should be noted that the ugly euphemism in question, it the usual parlance, does not refer to rape or violence. It refers to the intense reaction inherent in acting on erotic tensions that exist despite, or even because of, such a visceral dislike between the participants. Or so I am told. Sounds a bit unpleasant to me, but I am old-fashioned about such things.

    Beyond that, the article sounds repugnant. I agree it’s entirely misogynistic to attack women in a sexually degrading way because they are female. Misogyny is a prevalent subtext in so much of American male culture, even more common than an unconscious racism in white American culture, and it’s not something any of us should be proud of. It bothers me to see liberals stoop to such garbage, particularly when there are so many legitimate way to attack many of the people on his list on moral, political, or religious grounds. It’s the stupidest kind of adolescent misogyny.

    Are you retarded?

    “Ahhh, so I’m not the only troll anymore”

    I don’t think you know what trolling is.

    “Such a wonderfully provocative statement, the sort of thing that might inspire a reaction of some kind from some Marxist cabal. Brave the way he risks speaking out so clearly against leftist tyranny so powerful that it has subverted the nation.”

    A nonsensical straw man. As a Bi-racial person I have heard what lefties say about Black folk when they think none are around, and this is not the only example of misogyny from lefties that I have commented on. Try arguing the point I make rather than the fantasy character you made up to feel superior.

    “Such a heroic young patriot.”

    I’m 37 which is old enough to have seen this show. Try condescending to people who don’t know you’re basically a house bound parasite trolling my wife’s blog at all hours of the day.

    “He forgot to mention that it’s part of international Jewish conspiracy, so we’d all know to take him seriously.”

    I’m a pro-Zionist supporter of Israel and have literally dozens of posts on my blog detailing leftist anti-Semitism. You’re clearly projecting onto me the unseemly bigotry of your fellow travelers.

    “Of course, it DOES sound like something Michelle Malkin would say. Though she probably would have had an explanation about the secret terrorist statement implicit in Michelle Obama’s sleeveless dresses instead of the international Jewish conspiracy… and then end up getting sued by Dunkin Donuts.”

    In other words Malkin deserves it? Why don’t you show me one anti-Semitic statement made by Malkin, and I’ll point out the time DailyKos allowed a video from White Supremacists to be used as anti-Israeli propaganda.

    “On a more serious note, if hardly more serious of import, it should be noted that the ugly euphemism in question, it the usual parlance, does not refer to rape or violence.”

    Wrong again. It is originally a term for violent degradation heavy internet porn. Google it and see what comes up. Hate F%^&ing literally means having rough sex with someone you dislike and wish to humiliate. That there is consent doesn’t make it less degrading. Some women consent to being tied up and spanked, that doesn’t mean the sadists who masochists partner with don’t hate women.

    “It refers to the intense reaction inherent in acting on erotic tensions that exist despite, or even because of, such a visceral dislike between the participants.”

    This is pseudo-academic psychobabble at its most pernicious. I’d say a rose by any other name smells as sweet but I wouldn’t want you to comment on the materialist dialectic inherent in capitalist subjugation of the proletariat through literary classicism.

    “I agree it’s entirely misogynistic to attack women in a sexually degrading way because they are female. Misogyny is a prevalent subtext in so much of American male culture, even more common than an unconscious racism in white American culture, and it’s not something any of us should be proud of.”

    But this person’s douchebaggery must be first and foremost blamed squarely on him and his sadism. Then some responsibility must go tot the audience that encourages him (liberals) and finally the ideology that produces people like him. To say all Americans share in his misogyny (or Robert Byrd’s racism) is to relive them of their personal responsibility and worse blame me and thousands of other people who doesn’t partake in such venom for their actions.

    “It bothers me to see liberals stoop to such garbage, particularly when there are so many legitimate way to attack many of the people on his list on moral, political, or religious grounds. It’s the stupidest kind of adolescent misogyny.”

    Not enough to try to correct the problem though huh? No nasty letters, no campaign to clean up the left? You’re not bothered by the attacks on these women, you’re bothered that it might make people realizes you share their basic nihilism.

    Tell me, what religious and moral grounds you can use to attack Michelle Malkin?

    Conservative women are HOTter! Just imagine the justified ‘Liberal’ outrage if say, ‘Hustler’ Magazine ran a disgusting parody where Rush, Hannity, Beck, Savage and Ann Coulter gang-rape and tickle-torture Katie Couric, the PIAPS, and then Nancy Pelosi.

    Imagine. The outrage would last for months in the MSM. There would be calls for firings and boycotts. NOW would be apoplectic. Poor little outraged, hypocritical Libs.

    :)

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    joke about raping women

    if they are conservative
    EVIL freedom lovers…

    absurd thought –

    so is photography

    who are conservative
    they’re just gender traitors

    I’m posting this filth because it is typical of what the opposition does to conservative females in attempt to silence them.
    Brushing it under the rug will prevent us from exposing the creeps. Stand up to the bullies!

  8. Jenn Q. Public on June 6th, 2009 8:22 am

    USpace, I’m no defender of NOW, but I will give them credit for coming out with a strong statement condemning the Playboy article (though they probably wouldn’t have bothered if Elisabeth Hasselbeck hadn’t pressed them for it.) But you’re right, the level of outrage would have been entirely different if these were liberal women – you know, “real” women.

    One other point on your comment: one reason this was particularly heinous is that Playboy is a mainstream publication that has published the likes of Bill Buckley and Arthur Schlesinger. Hustler is a different animal entirely. If they did something similar, it would be harder to get worked up into a lather because we don’t really expect better of Hustler.

    “Tell me, what religious and moral grounds you can use to attack Michelle Malkin?”

    Let’s see… she doesn’t love her neighbor, or at the very least she does not behave in a manner appropriate to the principle of loving thy neighbor as outlined in the Bible. She frequently professes as much hatred (or more) for the sinner than for the sin, except when the sin fits into her prejudiced view of the world. I have not seen evidence of forgiveness or humility in accord with Biblical principles of both in her behavior.

    There is also a passage about camels and the eyes of needles that goes unnoticed in the modern interpretation of Calvinist predestinarian thought by many right-wing Christian groups, in the form of prosperity theology, to which Malkin and most other conservative commentators (and far too many American across the board) appear to subscribe: rich people are righteous and poor people are sinners. Such statements are not only too broad to be accurate, but grossly misrepresentative of what Jesus actually said about the rich and the poor.

    Just a few examples.
