…but that tweet was brilliant satire of our culture. You hated it? Don’t watch TMZ. That’s all they do. Rip people to shreds. Don’t watch E! They attack like dogs. Are you enjoying the people attacking someone for wearing a not so good dress? Kudos. Feel good about yourself. That poor son of a bitch wore the wrong thing. Laugh at Joan Rivers for making fun of someone for wearing a color. Let’s put her on a list and toss that thing around for a week all over the internet.
Yeah, The Onion made a brutal fucking joke.
That’s our society in a nutshell. We are like a pack of attack dogs, always looking for a weakness or a reason to destroy a human. Then we’ll build then up and hope we can tear them down again.
The Onion was spot on. That’s satire. The fact that she’s an innocent girl is what makes the point even more poignant. One of the reasons you don’t like it is because somewhere deep down, you know that’s what you are and you’re being called a bad person because of it by that tweet.
So, be upset all you want but don’t say it wasn’t a joke because it was. And a very effective one.
this makes no sense
I don’t see how this doesn’t make sense. The OP is completely right, what’s different about attacking a little girl like this when we do it to adult women all the time? What is the age at which tearing a person apart becomes okay?
The joke is disgusting, and it’s disgusting because it reflects who we are as a society and none of us want to see that. Which is why nothing ever changes.

I can understand the frustration, but it seems a bit unproductive to “brand” feminism. Isn’t any bit of feminism a good thing, isn’t this moving in the right direction at least?
That’s actually an amazing analogy.
This is not being anti-feminist for the interests of women, and the restoration of proper sexual behavior,
this is anti-woman. This is overwhelmingly misogynistic.
Women have control over their own sexuality, and while I’m sure that’s tough for you to deal with, it is none of your business.
You can value virginity, and want to only share that with the right person,
BUT THAT IS NOT RIGHT FOR ALL PEOPLE.
Some people don’t take sex that seriously.
Some people take sex very seriously, but have different views on what it means.
People just feel differently about sex, and feminism doesn’t make them disregard their self-respect, it gives them the ability to express sexuality in a way that they are comfortable with.
Sex has nothing to do with self-worth, in its essence. To some people it may, but this feeling is by no means universal.
This is trying to control women’s sexuality. This is anti-woman.
oh man this is good
Debates over access to abortion and birth control seemed to dominate the national conversation throughout the Republican primary, but according to a new Pew poll, those issues aren’t a major priority for most voters. For 86 percent of them, it’s still the economy, stupid.
The thing is, I feel like the Republicans strong points are on the economy, jobs, and budget deficit. At least relative to the bottom 5 or so.
