Rep. Blake Farenthold: I Did Not Have ‘Wet Dreams’ About Sexing That Staffer I Fired

Like THIS GUY would ever be nasty? Nahhh
In December, we gasped and clutched our pearls and LOL’d sooooo hard and then gagged even harder at the news that Texas Congressfool Blake Farenthold (R-Footie Pajamas) had been sued for sexually harassing his former communications director, Lauren Greene, who was coincidentally fired. COINCIDENTALLY, people, and probably NOT for complaining that she did not want to hear his sexytime talk, ew, gross. Because who would ever in a million years believe that such an upstanding guy, who wants to impeach President Obama for invading America with Ebola and also not really being a real U.S. American, would be capable of such untoward indecency?

Saudi Arabia Sends Women to Terror Court for Driving While Female

Image via YouTube Saudi Arabia has a problem. No matter how many times their powerful religious authorities warn about the dangers posed by females engaging in the act of driving, those crazy ladies keep getting behind the wheel! It’s not even a big deal that authorities refuse to issue drivers’ licenses to women, since they can get their male relatives to accompany them everywhere, which is just as good as controlling their own lives, and never mind that Saudi Arabia doesn’t have an actual law that says only men can drive. That’s just the way it is, OK? Read more on Saudi Arabia Sends Women to Terror Court for Driving While Female…

Inconceivably, Ducky-Pajamas-Wearing Texas Congressman Has Been Accused Of Sexual Harrassment

Like THIS GUY would ever be nasty? Nahhh
Texas Congresscritter Blake Farenthold is a real peach. He was elected to the House in 2010, flirted with birtherism,, explained that Ebola was probably going to kill us all because that’s how it works in zombie movies, and has frequently suggested that Congress could totally impeach Barack Obama for a million things (but good luck getting a conviction, because liberals still exist in the Senate). And now, if you can believe it, the super-douchey Farenthold has been

Brian Fischer Explains Why God Made Women To Be Secretaries, Just Like In Bible Times

Hey, Ladies of Wonket! Hope you’re all having a welcoming, nurturing, inviting day! It’s really a beautiful miracle how God made you so well-suited for secretarial and receptionist duties, because those are pretty much the only jobs you should consider while you wait to find a husband to take care of you (or become a lonely bitter spinster with scores of cats). So now that we have that clear, let’s see what American Patriarchy Association spokesdouche Bryan Fischer has to say about gender discrimination? Hmmm… Looks like he’s for it. OK, that’s all.

Lady At (Penis!) Archie Comics Sounds Like (Penis!) Loads Of Fun To Work For (Penis!)

So it looks like Yr Doktor Zoom has landed on the Comix Beat today, what with that funnybook review we did earlier, and then a story about unoriginal cartoon character Allen West, and now this bizarre story about a gender discrimination suit against the co-CEO of Archie Comics. The Universe is sending a message, and that message is “time to get to work on that My Little Pony meets Maus crossover fanfic, buddy.” (To be fair, the Universe tends to mumble.)

Paula Deen’s Long National Whitemare Finally Over (Partly)

A federal judge dismissed a racial discrimination suit against Diabeetus Queen Paula Deen Monday, ruling that plaintiff Lisa Jackson, who is white, could not have been harmed by the use of racist epithets in the workplace by Deen and her brother Bubba Hiers (a story which Yr. Wonkette broke back in April 2012). District Court Judge William T. Moore Jr. wrote “There are no allegations that [Deen’s] racially offensive comments were either directed toward plaintiff or made with the intent to harass her.” Presumably, Jackson couldn’t have been harmed by Bubba praising her money management by calling her his “little Jew girl,” either. Moore left in place sexual harassment claims against Deen and her business. It is not anticipated that the fact that Jackson and Deen are both women will be cause for dismissal.

It Is Like This Chick Suing The Family Research Council Thinks She Shouldn’t Have To Be Harrassed On The Job

Sure, there’s a war on women (but it’s more like a no-fly zone on women, no?), but why isn’t anyone paying attention to that other catastrophic American culture war -the war by women. It’s bad enough that young boys suffer as casualties when women of all ages insist on assaulting traditional American gender roles, but how will our once wholesome culture fare when even it’s finest institutions lose immunity against your Jezebel types? What if the field of combatants widens, and it isn’t just Jezebel types getting all uppity, and you’re even at risk of attack at your awesome Conservative Advocacy Group by the same woman you employed to silence all the sausage-fest jokes? WHAT IF THIS ISN’T A WHAT IF!?!?!?!?!? Read more on It Is Like This Chick Suing The Family Research Council Thinks She Shouldn’t Have To Be Harrassed On The Job…

Chick-Fil-A Now Firing Women So They Can Stay Home And Make Babies, For Jesus

Hey hey Chick-fil-A, how many women did you fire for having children at home so they could be “stay home mothers” in blatant disregard for sex-discrimination laws and common decency and humanity on top of all your other pressing PR problems that are totally “neutral” in the culture wars today? Oh, just the one, Brenda Honeycutt of Duluth, Georgia? But maybe like five more? In just one restaurant? Well depending on your judge that may not be enough to show a pattern of willful discrimination, so by all means, carry on!
