It’s objectification time again, and today we’ve got a couple serious feminist activists, just like last time, when we featured Jessica Valenti and Amanda Marcotte. Valenti won the last contest by a considerable margin, causing Marcotte some serious discomfort. Based on timing, I suspect that feminist rage over the last showdown ultimately led to The Spearhead (among other sites) being featured by the SPLC.
Some may think I’m overstating the effect of these pageants, but one should never, ever underestimate the effect it has on females when their SMV (sexual market value) is being denigrated. It’s akin to having a man humiliated by the law in front of his family, and forcibly subjugating him to his wife in court. Because feminists are all for doing these things to men, I feel absolutely no shame about subjecting them to objectification.
First up we have the notorious Sandra Fluke, who agitated for “free” birth control, paid for by employers whether they want to or not, and whether or not it violates their freedom of conscience. The President took her under his wing after she was mocked and called a “slut” by Rush Limbaugh, who was later forced to apologize to keep his very lucrative job.
Next, we have Amanda Hess, who has been a feminist writer for some time, writing for the Washington City Paper, then another Washington DC media outlet called “TBD,” and now apparently some obscure blog called “GOOD” in Los Angeles, where she has the title of “lifestyle editor.” A couple years ago, Hess made a very funny editing mistake at TBD, in which she missed one letter “n” in an article title. Her title came out as “one in three black men who have sex with me is HIV positive,” and it was panned across the nation.
So, the question is, if you had to spend a night with one of these women, which one would it be? Vote in the poll beneath the thumbnails.
