So I was talking to a new reader of mine last night (a libertarian, BTW) who likes badass women. Am I sensing a trend here, libertarian dudes ♥ badass women? (Heavens, I hope so.) Anyway, we were talking about feminism and romance novels again, and so now I present you Looking Through a Paradigm Darkly: Was Dominque’s rape in The Fountainhead actually rape? Why … or why not? Discuss. There will be a quiz on the show tonight.
Speaking of badass women, we have the woman who ate Chernobyl’s apples. Now, I do not know why I have an unnatural semi-obsession with Chernobyl except that it looks like a fabulous movie set (but it’s real!) (OMG!), but apparently I’m not the only one. Yeah, this chick’ll die young. So did Marie Curie, but the pioneers always take the arrows. Bad. Ass.
My inner grammar nazi and my inner artiste is going a round or two on this one. UBC student writes 52,438 word architecture dissertation with no punctuation — not everyone loved it. So here’s the deal: It’s an ARCHITECTURE dissertation. My inner artiste loves the symbolism of it, the art of it, making you look at words and dissect it, study it, work a bit at it. My inner grammar nazi is saying ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FUCKING MIND?!
Rape. Oh, rape. The word that has become commodified beyond meaning. A stolen kiss is rape. A naughty joke is rape. A rape accusation that stands unquestioned. Statement from family of Columbia student accused by mattress girl. Look, I was on this chick’s side if she really was raped and this was the only way she could get attention. But now, especially in light of the Rolling Stone story, I just can’t. This has set rape victims everywhere back by light years. I vote offering a gun and range time to every XX coed. The standard would be: If you refused a gun, you consented to sex. There. That’s your new contract.
Be prepared for Rand Paul squeal. Oh, hell, I shouldn’t even have to say that by now. Congressional leaders were blindsided by GOP opposition to renewing the Patriot Act. Ya think?
People are freaking out over this photo of a woman being walked around on a leash. Fifty Shades of Grey doesn’t look so great when you come face-to-face with the real deal, does it now? Is that a tail plug or shoes? Poseurs.
Now, look. We all know that conservatives are uptight about sex, right? Um … Well. Uptight about talking about it anyway. Libertarians not so much, I suppose. We here at the #Kinkservative show talk about it. Submit your questions to us via FB (Liz Harrison and/or Moriah Jovan) or Twitter (@GoldwaterGal and/or @MoriahJovan). We’ll answer them. We are 100% correct 100% of the time.
And this just in from Liz: “Playlist of the day is the dude that has no shame, and mostly sings about sex. Hehehehe!” Not sure how this differentiates him from rappers, but I haven’t listened yet, mostly because I’m rushing to get this up and I hate Spotify. I’ll see if I can catch him on YouTube.
Still pissy about conservatives acting like progressive statist asshats. I didn’t link anything because the list is so, so depressingly long.
Possibly on the agenda: Josh Duggar. And here I thought the few bad checks in my early 20s was going to come back to haunt me in a bad way.
