Pole dancing is only attractive to strait men who like looking at little stips of bacon giggling around like they were attached to key chains.

vaginas = blech...

Making women feel sexier about cleaning, stubborn baby weight, and daytime tv watching by appropriating the term "feminism." hmm

Slaves of patriarchy defending their lower status by telling the world that they feel "sexy and empowered...." gross

This "pole dancing feminism" is only vindicated when it leads the women to leave their fat-assed, children-for-husbands and to realize the truth that each of them is far sexier than the frumpy old creatures they are working for.

Women are mostly dirty, smell like fish and rob men of their sexual energy. Period...

I don't trust anything that bleeds for 1 week out of a month and doesn't die.

Someone take ecce's "1001 Dirty Jokes For Smokers" (1959 edition) away from him.

The way I see it, anything that makes women feel sexier is better for humanity in general.

Posted by Dianna | July 20, 2007 12:51 PM


It's certainly better for the men in their lives, i.e. will get them laid more often.

So, E.H. Being a racist is bad, but hating women is acceptable. Um, right...

Posted by Dr_Awesome | July 20, 2007 1:00 PM

No. 7: Yep, that's exactly what I was doing by... um... posting something I found on a feminist blog.

ECB @8 - 7 was directed to ecce homo (EH), not you.

Posted by Levislade | July 20, 2007 1:12 PM

@8 - E.H. = ecce homo you twit

Posted by Awesome-ite | July 20, 2007 1:12 PM

ECB- she was dogging Ecce Homo, not you. Post away, ECB. But EH should probably be be shot.

I think No.7 meant ecce

Posted by elrider | July 20, 2007 1:14 PM

Wow... Mad simul-postings! Jinx, you all owe me cokes.

Posted by christopher | July 20, 2007 1:19 PM

OK, OK - I misread the initials. Calm down, though, for Pete's sake - you're giving me a migraine.

Posted by ECB | July 20, 2007 1:23 PM

My point exactly...

Posted by ecce homo | July 20, 2007 1:24 PM

I mean, how do you double post with that new fangle thingy at the bottom of the screen?

Posted by ecce homo | July 20, 2007 1:25 PM

Ecce: So the fact that people hate you proves vaginas are ugly? Your existence is an insult to your mom. Abort thyself.

Posted by christopher | July 20, 2007 1:26 PM

keshmeshi@6: Of course, because women can't possibly enjoy sex, can they?

I forgot that everytime I have sex with my husband it's for his enjoyment only; thanks for pointing out my servitude.

Posted by Dianna | July 20, 2007 1:28 PM

At least you are good for something dianna, except for spending money, whining about just about everything, and making your husband miserable. How is it the occasional blow job, is all that bad.

Posted by ecce homo | July 20, 2007 1:31 PM

Post feminists are lame. Sadly I think a lot of these third wavers are basically post feminists and would agree with this pole dancing liberation bullshit. Forget wage hikes, equal opportunity and maternity leave! Give us tits!

Great spot though. Hilarious.

Posted by Jay | July 20, 2007 1:37 PM

Please note: I didn't say ALL third wavers. Just making that clear.

Posted by Jay | July 20, 2007 1:38 PM

Icky hobo's trolling techniques have sunk a few notches. Used to be he'd just spout a contrary position and watch the posts roll in, but today he's basically just saying "fuck you" over and over again. And I'm a troll-bait fool, but I can't resist returning the favor.
Icky, please go to Africa and get chopped up with machetes, you weaselly little bitch.

Posted by christopher | July 20, 2007 1:39 PM

what a hostile thread. woah.

@18, kesh (whom i do not know enough to defend personally) didn't say it wasn't better for women, just commented that it was better for men. and it was said in a humour off the cuff way. but having one doesn't necessarily mean the exclusion of the other.

not that i agree it means more sex anyway. just more sexy feelings.

Posted by infrequent | July 20, 2007 1:41 PM

infrequent: maybe you're right, but it didn't come across that way to me.

And Christopher @22: be strong, don't give in to idiot trolls. Like the class clown, it only encourages them.

Posted by Dianna | July 20, 2007 1:49 PM

Stupid spoiled playset!

Anyone that hasn't seen the "stupid spoiled whore" South Park episode is missing out.

Posted by Original Monique | July 20, 2007 1:52 PM

Whoops, yeah my initial comment was aimed at the bitchy little troll, not ECB. Sorry. I sorta hate using the "@" thingy, it just looks funny. Anyway...

Can the bitchy little troll just be banned, now?

Posted by Dr_Awesome | July 20, 2007 1:56 PM

Thanks for the encouragement Dianna. I'll stop addressing the EH for the rest of the day at least. And Monique- Was that the one with Hilton and the suicidal dogs? Been a while since I saw a south park ep. That one was pretty funny.

Posted by christopher | July 20, 2007 1:57 PM

Christopher: I know it's hard. You can do it.

Posted by Dianna | July 20, 2007 2:05 PM

"strait" men? like george? juan de fuca?

and 'mo, why aren't you spending time with your alleged 'children' instead of on slog?

Posted by scary tyler moore | July 20, 2007 2:25 PM


infrequent is right, I was being (mostly) facetious.

I've heard too many men whine about never getting laid by their long-term girlfriends or wives. It's my theory that many women who lose interest in sex do so because they no longer feel sexy/sexual. Overcoming that is better for women and men.

Posted by keshmeshi | July 20, 2007 2:58 PM

Keshmeshi: Sorry about that one. I guess I've been reading too much of Erica Barnett's stuff--making me a little hostile.

Posted by Dianna | July 20, 2007 2:59 PM

So the other night, I was doing a couple of lines of meth off the smoking hot ass of a fine young twink I picked up at Pony, and it occurs to me, this whole vaginas are gross thing could be pure comedy gold, I should try it in my bit sometime and you know its really never been done before in comedy, the hating on women thing.

So, you, my friends in the audience tonight, remember you heard it here first...

how many vaginas does it take to turn a guy like me gay? (pause for effect): Just One, (hold), Your

this ones for the ladies: if they discovered a new planet and named it Vagina, would it be near about

I kid, I kid, but seriously folks someone needs to tell these ladies about how gross their vaginas are, society isn't doing that near enough!
Can I get a witness?

and finally (drumroll please): Why do women even need purses, can't they store all their stuff in their Vaginas?

Thank you, Thanks for being my petri dish(kinda like a vagina, har-har)....You really are a wonderful audience, all of you, even your vaginas.
thank you, Goodnight

Hilarity, ecce rimshot, hilarity.

Hilarity, ecce rimshot.

Posted by Dianna | July 20, 2007 3:21 PM

Erg: Dianna hits post. Dianna does other work for five minutes. Dianna looks at comments, comment has not posted, posts again, and ends up with double.


Posted by Dianna | July 20, 2007 3:23 PM

Sentiment 'Ecce Homo should be banned' - seconded

Sentiment 'Ecce Homo should be shot' - seconded

Funny how he's often the first to post, must be because he's a homeless loser, jerking off at the library.

Yeah, Ecce, I noticed you going back to days old threads and commenting to get the last word, must be the height of trollishness, but what more can you expect with a loser with nothing better to do than constantly troll.

I say you are compensating, you wished you owned a car so you could run people over, your pathetic closeted ass does meth, while screaming to the high heavens about ppl promoting it who don't.

Do the world a favor a step in front of a bus Ecce. We'd show our appreciation by having a Glad You Are Dead party of epic proportions.

Ok Homeboy

KX One, a great hip hopping baddas name. Im scared and hurt.

I'll stop posting my thoughts just for you...

Posted by ecce homo | July 20, 2007 6:01 PM

You are totally mistaken as to the roots of my handle, showing your prejudices once again.

It's nice to hear you won't be posting anymore, calling them 'thoughts' is a stretch though. ;)

Posted by K X One | July 20, 2007 7:22 PM

Anyway, I think pole dancing looks really fun. I don't care if it's feminist or not, I'd take that class. (However, only if her husband and his friend leave the room.)

Posted by la | July 20, 2007 8:39 PM

Thank you, la, for getting back to what this thread is supposed to be about. That said, I have no comment.
