Pablum Puking, Fisking, And A Righteous Rant

10 April 2012 @ 09:44

Three of TCOTS’s features have merged thanks to the mindless meanderings of a mookish moron…

In a very enjoyable posting, Stacy McCain Fisks a bit of Naomi Wolfe-ish pablum puking by ‘actor’ [did she get a sex change?] Ashley Judd. A highlight:

[ASHLEY] However, the recent speculation and accusations in March feel different, and my colleagues and friends encouraged me to know what was being said. Consequently, I choose to address it because the conversation was pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic and embodies what all girls and women in our culture, to a greater or lesser degree, endure every day, in ways both outrageous and subtle. The assault on our body image, the hypersexualization of girls and women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality as we walk through the decades, and the general incessant objectification is what this conversation allegedly about my face is really about. . . . .

([STACY] Excuse me while I climb up on this cross and suffer as an atoning sacrifice, because you’re in need of a millionaire St. Ashley.)

While Stacy’s Fisking is a damn fine example of the art, it is commentator Elaine who manages to steal the spotlight from America’s Favorite Gonzo Blogger with her response to the ‘actor’:

She isn’t the first actress over 40 who complains about how unfair society is… she won’t be the last, either.

…The trouble for Ashley Judd and her actress "sisters" is that they chose a profession which is all about appearance; and now that they’re older, they want the rules to change.

I bet they weren’t complaining when they were taking roles away from the older actresses they were competing against… But now that the shoe’s on the other foot, the waterworks begin.

Well, sorry ladies, it don’t work that way. If you had something less superficial that you were doing with your life — like say, being a microbiologist — few people would care about what work you may have had done. But you specifically chose acting… did you think you’d be spared all the catty comments when you got a little age and wear on you?

See… the rest of us accept that we get older and look it, too. It’s not that big a deal. We aren’t busily trying to recapture our youth…

So to all the actresses over 40: either accept with grace that we all get older, or put yourselves out of your misery. Because you’ll never do anything but complain from here on out.

Spot-on and dead solid perfect.

And when the ‘actors’ complain, they’ll employ tired, old, and discredited bromides developed in the sterile laboratories of Leftist minds that will offer nothing of value to the discussions at hand, bromides that they repeat like programmed drones without having a clue as to what they mean.

    Dang! Ashley Judd is 43? When did that happen? I guess she and Winona Rider can stop looking for ingenue roles now.

    Why?!? Forty-three is the new 28.375, or 24 or 6 to 4, six of one, or something – ain’t it?

    So where’s the pictures so we can properly objectify her? 😉

    Also, a girl’s best friends are make-up artists, dermatologists, and phototshop.

      Normally I woul have, but, as I’ll be explaining in a quickie post in a few minutes, this week has gotten off to a hectic start.

    And on the whole a woman calling herself an actor, it’s supposedly so they’ll be taken Seriously. Because Hollywood is Serious Business.

    Personally, I think it’s full of crock; other languages are more strongly gendered, and you don’t hear of women demanding to be addressed with masculine terms in them.

    Except for the damn Swedes, trying to abolish gender. Mucking about with things man was not ment to.

      It’s all part of the Left’s plan to Deconstruct.

    Forty’s not so bad. But I can tell you that add another thirty or so years and appearance no longer matters. You’re not going to get laid anyway.
