This is what misogyny looks like in the media [VIDEO]

Never mind the fact that, just before the section I quote below, neither Hannity nor Cunningham address the question that Holder just asked about Bush and the debt ceiling. No, instead of answering her question, Cunningham launches into a half-baked argument about the national debt (even though the topic at hand was the debt ceiling) surrounded by dismissive remarks about Tamra’s intelligence and appearance.

2:15 Bill Cunningham: “This woman has lost her mind, no question about that. Let me help you with math. When your friend, Obama, took office, the national debt was about 9 1/2 or 10 trillion. Now it’s 17 on its way to 20. In my simple, Catholic grade school math, that’s about a 10 trillion dollar increase under 8 years of Obama. Is 20 greater than 10, Tamra? Earth to Tamra, is 20 greater than 10?”

Tamara Holder: “Are you talking to me like I’m an alien? Or because I didn’t go to Catholic school?”

BC: “You don’t look like a Catholic girl to me.”

TH: “His comments… are you listening to this Sean?”

Sean Hannity: “Well, what Bill Cunningham is saying is that…”

TH: “Are you listening to this, Sean?”

SH: “What did he say?”

TH: “I don’t look like a Catholic girl – what do I look like? What do I look like?”

BC: “Farrah Fawcett wannabe.”

Remember, “rape culture” is just a myth

**Trigger warning**

A few days ago, I came across (yet another) blog post about “the myth of ‘rape culture’” and no, I’m not linking to it here. Last night on Twitter, thanks to The Nation’s Aura Bogado – read her latest here – I came across (yet another) hashtag that had descended into… well, I’ll let you see for yourself.

The cure for rape culture is consent culture.


In July The Washington Post published a story about men who post phony ads to make it appear as if their ex-wives or girlfriends are soliciting sex. One man, Michael Johnson II of Hyattsville, Maryland, published an ad titled “Rape Me and My Daughters” and included his ex-wife’s home address. More than 50 men showed up to the victim’s house. One man tried to break in and another tried to undress her daughter. Johnson was sentenced to 85 years in prison. His victim was physically unharmed but these ads can be lethal. In December 2009, a Wyoming woman was raped with a knife sharpener in her home after an ex-boyfriend assumed her identity and posted a Craigslist ad that read, “Need an aggressive man with no concern or regard for women.” Her ex and the man who raped her are both serving long prison sentences.

We wanted an internet free from oversight, an environment where ideas could be exchanged freely. In many important ways, the web has achieved that idyllic vision. Individuals have the ability to communicate with large audiences, a power that in the past belonged only to media tycoons and governments. A lack of gatekeepers means frictionless communication, but it also means the quality of that communication can’t be controlled. And too often on the internet today, no consequence means no class. The internet experience is being degraded by those bent on settling scores, intimidating enemies, or simply silencing those with whom they disagree. The social networks say they’re powerless to stop it. Police say they’re overwhelmed. For these reasons, many people find the web a hostile and dangerous environment.
