AMERICA'S GREATEST EUNUCH  12:05 am March 8, 2011

Creepy Nerd Ross Douthat Gets All Horny Over Idea of Monogamy

by Ken Layne

'Like the shy one, at some orgy ...'For some reason, the New York Times employs a weird boy-child who is utterly obsessed with the sex he never gets to have — and this guilt-plagued onanist writes his embarrassing tripe on the op-ed page, where adults are supposed to write about World Events or whatever. (Why do we subscribe to the NYT, again? Oh right, we don’t.) So, here is orc-nerd Ross Douthat shaving his hairy palms again so he can type more horny wingnut drivel about how some people who have sex somewhere may be having sex in a way that now suits Ross Douthat.

Ugh, why is Douthat paid to write about people having sex? Probably just to drive us bonkers, the same way David Brooks is paid to write about “what’s cool” and Thomas Friedman is paid to type about the round flat world that baffles him unless he’s golfing. Douthat should really be put in a special home for this particular unseemly obsession with people who manage to find other people to hump on:

But there are different kinds of premarital sex. There’s sex that’s actually pre-marital, in the sense that it involves monogamous couples on a path that might lead to matrimony one day. Then there’s sex that’s casual and promiscuous, or just premature and ill considered.

Oh, for fuck’s sake, shut up and stop masturbating on everybody, again. Time to re-read The Hobbit for the twelfth time this year, so far! [NYT]

It's a dangerous business, Ross, going out your door. So, go back inside and jerk off some more.

V572625694 March 8, 2011 at 12:03 am

I'll bet that one girl who laughed at Ross for not being able to get it up that time at Harvard is sorry now.

Extemporanus March 8, 2011 at 4:37 am

That one girl?

Moonbat March 8, 2011 at 10:17 am

Oh, we're alll sorry now.

memzilla March 8, 2011 at 12:08 am

Anagrams of Ross Douthat include Tutors Ad Hos and A Turd Shoots.

smokefilledroommate March 8, 2011 at 2:13 am

D'oh–Ass Tutor! (You know he's an ass tutor).

Moonbat March 8, 2011 at 10:17 am

But is he a hard ass-worker?

undeterredbyreality March 8, 2011 at 12:16 am

I suspect it's that "premature" sex that has Ross so troubled.

AddHomonym March 8, 2011 at 12:21 am

So, I would be more depressed if I were getting laid? What?

EdFlintstone March 8, 2011 at 12:22 am

"Casual and promiscuous or premature and ill considered", sounds like Sarah and Bristol's alternate twitter names.

twoeightnine March 8, 2011 at 1:11 am

Or the names of their next kids.

fusillijerry March 8, 2011 at 12:23 am

I don't understand the bigger concepts. I will try in the early morning. But look at this:

"Then there’s sex that’s casual and promiscuous, or just premature and ill considered."

I say, teach about and enable birth control. Without unwanted outcomes, this idjit's commentary will be increasingly viewed as hysterical and irrelevant.

twoeightnine March 8, 2011 at 12:23 am

That guy looks like he's killed a few hookers in his life.

bumfug March 8, 2011 at 12:27 am

Male hookers.

Probably bored them to death.

LocalGirlMakesGoo March 8, 2011 at 9:19 am

I'm getting the 'never passed the anal stage of childhood development' and 'aroused by dead bodies' vibes from him.

horsedreamer_1 March 8, 2011 at 11:29 am

He looks like an Eagle Scout I knew, once. An Eagle Scout with a penchant for supporting Republican policy in high-school, only to turn into an "anarcho-syndicalist" with an hankering for on-the-job larceny (stealing medium-end electronics, mostly) for personal use.

Basically, then, no difference. Just a slight tweaking of the ideology he cited to justify his malfeasance. (From Gingrich to Chomsky.)

onemoretime79 March 8, 2011 at 12:28 am

Oh, I've heard about this author. Ken Starr's his daddy, right?

Kidneys4Sale March 8, 2011 at 1:11 am

Define 'daddy'.

bagofmice March 8, 2011 at 12:42 am

His kind of premarital sex was the Right kind of premarital sex. Not like those Harvard sluts.

drrty_martini March 8, 2011 at 12:43 am

Oh sweet jesus. I actually read that? I have a feeling he didn't.

ShaveTheWhales March 8, 2011 at 12:45 am

So there's known pre-marital sex, and known non-pre-marital sex, and unknown non-marital sex, and

Oh fuck it.

nounverb911 March 8, 2011 at 12:46 am

Some how I don't think Ross approves of Mittens 12 wives.

bflrtsplk March 9, 2011 at 3:49 am

They all turned him down too.

harry_palmer March 8, 2011 at 12:49 am

The guy can't admit that a girl's biscuit grosses him out, and the sister of the dude he had a crush on told all his friends, so he tried to humiliate her in the Atlantic. Or, he's just a douche hat.

But I wish you could have found another expression than "Ross Douthat shaving his hairy palms" – my avatar feels tainted.

DoktorZoom March 8, 2011 at 1:16 am

Strange. My taint feels avatarred.

SayItWithWookies March 8, 2011 at 12:57 am

Ross Douthat just longs for the day when he wasn't the only virgin in the room. So dear young people: don't listen to idiots like ol' Ross here, and be smart about sex, but have as much with as many partners as you care to. Really, if you're going to listen to Douthat about sexual mores, you may as well go completely over the cliff and start taking advice from the pope.

trampndirtdown March 8, 2011 at 1:03 am

Careful man the troll is enamored with either the NYT, Douhat, or possibly non-partner sex. At any rate he doesn't like your comments any.
On second thought maybe he's just into fisting.

SayItWithWookies March 8, 2011 at 1:28 am

Eh, fuck p. And let the virgins have their fun.

DoktorZoom March 8, 2011 at 1:26 am

If you want a really fun read, here's a nice Catholic fellow who explains why even married couples shouldn't do anything other than vaginal intercourse, because God hates orgasms.

Iam_Who_Iam March 8, 2011 at 4:14 am

Dammit, I wanted to read that but the link won't work. Is it me or is your linky thing broken? Whatever, now I'm probably doomed to hell cuz I totally thought it was cool to for us married folk to enjoy sex.

DoktorZoom March 8, 2011 at 8:53 am
thebeatgoeson08 March 8, 2011 at 9:48 am

Holy Bologna. What a bunch of crap. You just know he gets off thinking about naughty married people indulging in lustful sex acts. Must spend a lot of time in confession!
He is describing the sex life of about .00001% of married Catholics. And of course, the views of Catholics who can't get laid (Kathryn Jean Lopez).

smokefilledroommate March 8, 2011 at 1:11 am

He looks like a human fart. He really does. And I don't want to read about the sexual non-quests of a fart.

glamourdammerung March 8, 2011 at 1:13 am

My understanding is that Ross Douthat is a Catholic. Good thing the Catholic Church has not had any sort of long, ongoing scandals of a sexual nature, especially something worse than anything involving consenting adults, or he would have to write endlessly about it.

Lascauxcaveman March 8, 2011 at 1:34 am

Hey, now. I was raised Catholic, and kept my virginity an embarrassingly long time, and I turned out OK.

So I guess what I'm saying is, I don't know what Douchehat's excuse is.

glamourdammerung March 8, 2011 at 1:44 am

If one writes that criticism of the Church for shielding pedophiles from the law is unfair, they really lack any moral standing to whine about what occurs between consenting adults.

zhubajie March 8, 2011 at 10:07 am

Just don't let the Prot butt-fuckers off easy.

glamourdammerung March 8, 2011 at 11:16 am

The Protestants are not in the same situation of someone literally being their god's voice who can make a rule with and expect it to be enforced with minimal questioning at most.

Pop_Socket March 8, 2011 at 8:37 am

It was all the fault of the hippies in the 60s with their free love.

kittenbomb March 8, 2011 at 10:38 am

It's not exactly free. Valtrex don't grow on trees, you know.

Wadisay March 8, 2011 at 9:42 am

I for one would like to see him go down the road of, it's OK for priests to bugger the altar boys if they intend to gay-marry them.

glamourdammerung March 8, 2011 at 11:17 am

Or the road of "anyone that rapes children is out, period". I fail to see how that could possibly be seen as an extreme or even unreasonable stance.

MsQuasimodo March 11, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Which explains why the church does not even recognize marriage-rape or forced reproduction as crimes against humanity. Because women aren't fully human, and if a woman doesn't want it all the time the way her husband wants it, she is defective and mentally ill. And she is a forced-pregnancy baby machine. Raping children? Meh. They asked for it. It's probably all written down in one of the lesser-known encyclicals or statements regarding the roles of priests and laity. Authoritah!

harry_palmer March 8, 2011 at 1:16 am

Dear troll,

Downfisting our comments means you're on the side of the New York Times, which means you support same sex marriage and Obamacare. Now Sarah Palin will never fuck you when you bump into her at CPAC, like you've been fantasizing. Nice going.

Kidneys4Sale March 8, 2011 at 1:17 am

Ross. Stop wearing your work polo to the bar after you leave the office. Eleventy-Bajillion percent more women (so, at least 3 + a tranny) will jump on you, I promise.

Much Love.

Signed,
A nerd who used to wear many polos, but now several trannies instead.

Barbara_i March 8, 2011 at 8:26 am

The "Members Only" jacket isn't exactly styling either.

Aw, Cardinal Douie is back! I've missed his "more-Helen-Bonham-Carter-than-thou" smirk.

"more-Helen-Bonham-Carter-than-thou" smirk.

Nice, nice…

el_donaldo March 8, 2011 at 1:24 am

The nice thing about Ross is he shows us that once you peel the all that crazy off the conservative movement, what you're left with is a bunch of socially inept weirdos who think sex is icky.

cheaphits March 8, 2011 at 5:56 am

So they either indulge in the kinkiest, weirded-out sex imaginable for the thrills or have a drawerfull of soggy socks and a chip on their shoulder.

Or both…or none.

In any case they sure as hell aren't the ones I want dictating my sex life.

deanbooth March 8, 2011 at 8:42 am

That applies to Al Qaeda, also too.

Ducksworthy March 8, 2011 at 9:53 am

What you're left with is a bunch of socially inept weirdos who think sex with women is icky. Actually, it women, and their women parts, that they think are icky. Little boy parts not so much.

prommie March 8, 2011 at 11:21 am

Priests?

MsQuasimodo March 11, 2011 at 1:25 pm

This applies to conservative catholics, too – I went to a college full of 'em. (shudders at the thought) And strangely enough, a few years after I graduated some of the seminiarians/priests were busted for – wait for it – child molestation.

tbogg March 8, 2011 at 1:27 am

I'm a fairly happy guy so I've got some leeway when it comes to that "the more sex with other people you have, the more depressed you will become" thing. Is there some kind of meat thermometer I can use to know when it's time to stop?

BaldarTFlagass March 8, 2011 at 7:24 am

When your "meat thermometer" looks like a raisin, it's time to stop.

mereoblivion March 8, 2011 at 9:11 am

I've got a little red button in the middle of my forehead that pops out when the end is near. Scares people at first but most of them get over it.

kittenbomb March 8, 2011 at 10:41 am

When it hurts to pee.

MsQuasimodo March 11, 2011 at 1:26 pm

Women just need the thermometer that warns them they are about to screw a loser or douchebag, so STOP NOW.

Mumbletypeg March 8, 2011 at 1:30 am

Mr. Douthat simply does not care for a good time. Loves pontificatin', wants more domesticatin', but in all likelihood needs a round of old fashioned fornicatin'.

imissopus March 8, 2011 at 1:30 am

Ross, trust me: being the sensitive, caring guy who is only concerned for the well-being of these young women will not get you laid more.

DaSandman March 8, 2011 at 9:54 am

Ha! It won't get you laid AT ALL.

imissopus March 8, 2011 at 1:37 am

Could someone hurry up and invent a lifelike promiscuous female robot that Neckbeard could fuck so he'll stop splattering his repressed Catholic guilt about sex all over the Times editorial page?

MsQuasimodo March 11, 2011 at 1:30 pm

Canonically speaking, is sex with a robot "sex"? Or is it more properly a form of masturbation or onanism? Can sex with a robot lead to procreation? If sex with a robot leads to orgasm, and cannot impregnate the robot (or Douchebag) then it is unlawful, unless he marries the robot. But, marriage has to be between a "man and a woman." Suppose it's a female sex robot? Well, can she conceive? (No, putting a little baby doll inside her doesn't count.)
(sigh) It is so fucking hard being a loser conservative catholic when nobody will date you or screw you.

DoktorZoom March 8, 2011 at 1:42 am

Ask my married lover about how much better sex is with me than with her husband.

mereoblivion March 8, 2011 at 9:10 am

Email? Phone number?

BeWoot March 8, 2011 at 1:49 am

I always love it when the Times runs the tag "Ross Douthat is off" on weeks when we don't have his column to skip over. Invariably, my first thought on these welcome occasions is, Ross Douthat is always off.

Just imagine the meeting where the editorial board decided that giving Ross many, many pennies for his thoughts was a good idea. "Well, that whole Billy Kristol thing was an embarrassment. And Dave Brooks is just not quite spongy enough. So let's hire Ross! He's too flaccid to offend anybody … and part of our job on this planet is making readers think, 'What? Why?'"

problemwithcaring March 8, 2011 at 2:05 am

Yes! Finally, confirmation from my hero/sexual-spiritual guide Ross Douchebag, that I can get all the dick I want – and it's not "promiscuous" as long as I act like this sucking and eating raw will lead to marriage one day. Phew!

Goodnight all – I got some ill-considered fucking to do.

SayItWithWookies March 8, 2011 at 3:19 am

By the way, Douthat's piece was not nearly the worst appearance today by a sexually underdeveloped conservative NYT columnist. If you watched Charlie Rose interview David Brooks this evening about Brooks' new novel, you saw one for the ages. Brooks basically expounded on his book, which is a neurosciency tech-savvy allegorical utopian vision of the emotionally vacant bobo by an author who unironically claims to know nothing about science, who cited two-dozen quasi-mystical examples of how willpower alone determines success and how real leaders see into the essence of things with gut-level unalytic decisions that tap into some deep unconscious, and who created these soulless exemplars of his vision of success because (and I'm not making this up) he can't think in abstract terms, only concrete ones. David Brooks is the fucking Babe Ruth of lack of self-awareness.

CliveWarren March 8, 2011 at 4:36 am

But he has a blog now… With comments… So that's something, right?

ManchuCandidate March 8, 2011 at 5:06 am

If Force of Will were enough then every bayonet charge, every MBA that ever lived and every pass that anyone ever made at someone would have been a success.

Beanball March 8, 2011 at 5:40 am

According to Barbara Tuchman, Force of Will was the bedrock of French strategy during WWI. And we all know how well that worked out.

ManchuCandidate March 8, 2011 at 6:08 am

About as well as Renya Mutaguchi's 15th Army did in Burma in 1944.

Who is Renya Mutaguhci? He was the David Brooks of Japan who wrote this gem of military history:

"The struggle has developed into a fight between the material strength of the enemy and our spiritual strength. Continue in the task till all your
ammunition is expended. If your hands are broken fight with your feet. If your hands and feet are broken use your teeth. If there is no breath left in
your body, fight with your spirit. Lack of weapons is no excuse for defeat."

He only lost 50000 out of 65000 troops mostly due to starvation/disease.

cheetojeebus March 8, 2011 at 6:57 am

David Brooks and Ross had a similar experience as children, having been publicly humiliated by their mother's, perhaps for making dirty in their knee britches, they retreated to their rooms to stare longingly at a small bobble head doll of William Buckley. It's lips parted and a tiny darting tongue, only it's tip appearing, rocking hypnotically, The Rosebud of their future. And they fapped, boy did they fap.

pity-sex is better than no sex, but i doubt if Doubt-Hat (Douche-Hat?) can handle it.
he needs to work through his guilt; perhaps one of those Japanese girl-dolls that can be inflated will wean him from his terrible anti-sex trip. he needs to read Wilhelm Reich.

Ross writes this bunk for the NY Times to make me feel better about my sex life. I just know it.

I get the impression that Ross spent a lot of time over at the Rectory.

What I don't understand, reading this, is how Frank Rich managed to stay on at the NYT until just last week. I'd have jumped into the Hudson months ago.

Allmighty_Manos March 8, 2011 at 9:03 am

Douthat's claim to fame was writing a book saying that the GOP might want to consider actually giving a shit about the endangered species known as the American middle class. Of course the big problem for him is that the GOP is run by people who are either

A: Plutocrats who want the US to resemble a giant Central American banana plantation, circa 1890
B: Pudgy middle American white folks living off of disability whose major pressing concerns revolve around Kenyans, Mexicans and the price of gold.

Ain't exactly a fertile field there for a young wanna be GOP thinker. So he's stuck writing creepy pieces about sex for the NYT. So sad.

Chet Kincaid March 8, 2011 at 12:56 pm

You are correct, sir.

Trannysurprise March 8, 2011 at 9:04 am

Poor Ross. He failed to mention the other kind of sex where the tranny he picked up at the Tool Box vomits on his Spider Man sheets. Hawt.

Douthat is a prime example that religion corrupts even the highly intelligent.

Ross forgot his favorite kind involving a laptop, some lubrication, and bitter tears.

Slim_Pickins March 8, 2011 at 12:51 pm

For purposes of discussion, wouldn't his column be considered kiddie porn in Michigan? (vide supra).

Chet Kincaid March 8, 2011 at 1:06 pm

Ross Don'touchthat is just pining for the Old Hypocrisy of the Fabled '50s, when everyone did everything they do now, except they lied about it and kept it out of media and entertainment. He probably brings himself to climax imagining himself as Don Draper's new secretary.

zhubajie March 8, 2011 at 8:38 pm

On the contrary, I spent many years in the born-again ghetto. Everyborn-again preacher, esp. the Pentecostals, is even more the Voice ofGod. Remember how Bush claimed God told him to invade Iraq,Afghanistan, etc.?Note that I've given most of religion up. The last time I didanything religious was to burn incense and kowtow to a dragon-god.

glamourdammerung March 8, 2011 at 9:18 pm

Yeah, but the Catholics have a pretty clear hierarchy that is not in present in other Christian sects. While they have some leadership obviously, they simply do not function as a monolithic entity. I am not saying they should not tell their people to lay off the child rape, just pointing out that they do not have a leader with sway over the entire group instead of a church here or there.

MsQuasimodo March 11, 2011 at 1:19 pm

I willingly burn incense and say nice things to the dragon-god overlords! At least they leave no doubt when you are being smited with fire.

When small-f fascism comes to the US, it'll come in protestantfundamentalist garb. You should fear Pat Robertson, John Hagee, et al.far more than you should Josephy Ratzinger.

Evangelicals are clearly more of a threat to the American system. But that hardly means the Catholics are not an international pedophile enabling ring in their current form.

Funny. I used to use the same arguments against my alcoholic, sociopathic ex-husband when he raped me and sodomized me regularly. Those arguments didn't sway, him, either, but the eventual divorce and me moving across the country to get away from him did. Also, stopping being catholic helped, too. Witches rule!
