Good thing Karen was there, otherwise Mike woulda had to fuck the entire row behind him.

As more and more HARVEY WEINSTEIN victims come forward, some people (assholes) just can’t seem to find their way to blaming HARVEY WEINSTEIN for how HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S dick allegedly sexually harassed and assaulted and even raped women. Whose fault is it that, according to accuser Lauren Sivan, WEINSTEIN forced her to watch as he jizzed into a potted plant? Don’t ask World’s Best Journalist Chris Cillizza, because he’s too busy jerking himself off over how quickly Hillary Clinton responded to the WEINSTEIN allegations and was Hillary pretending she doesn’t like rape and sexual assault, or is she just pandering like a common Hillary Clinton again? Jesus Christ, Chris Cillizza, go fuck yourself.

And certainly do not ask Justin Miller of the Daily Beast, because he’s got his finger up his ass with the #HotTake that Meryl Streep is a common Bitches Be Lyin’ for saying she had no idea WEINSTEIN was so awful to women. BURN HER FOR A WITCH!

Then a new trend emerged! Whose fault is it that HARVEY WEINSTEIN did all those things? Well, maybe if women didn’t act like such sluts by existing in rooms where men also were existing, and maybe if women weren’t dumb enough to go to bars with their male colleagues after work without men interpreting that as a License 2 Fuk, none of this would have happened.

Seriously, asshole men are saying this!

Feminist author Jessica Valenti collected a few of the worst offenders in a tweet:

Those tweets come from 1) Mansplaining gaysexual Josh Barro of Business Insider; 2) Trump Nazi Sebastian Gorka; and 3) wingnut blogger Erick Erickson, who DOES NOT FUCK GOATS STOP SAYING THAT.

Barro’s column is a run-of-the-mill mansplainer where he appears to bemoan how women miss out on career advancement opportunities because of activities that “blur the lines” between professional and personal, where poor men are worried about the appearance of impropriety. But instead of coming to the conclusion that maybe men should not assume they are allowed to sexually harass/grope/fuck their female colleagues in these situations, he instead says office culture needs to change so employees don’t go out after work or get to know each other, because before you know it everybody’s drinking and men, UNCONTROLLABLE ANIMALS THAT THEY ARE, might feel compelled to violate women’s personal boundaries. This is not a good #HotTake!

Gorka and Erickson really get to the point, though, about how men are the REAL victims here. Let’s look at their tweets a little more closely:

Ah yes! The “Mother Rule.” (Mike Pence calls his wife “Mother,” and not even in a playful way like young parents do with young children when they say, “Where’s Mommy? Let’s go see Mommy!” Mike Pence is gross and creepy and disgusting.)

Mike Pence is not allowed to eat lunch with a lady all by himself, and Mike Pence is not allowed to be sans Mother at any event where alcohol might be served, because DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, those situations might force Mike Pence to yank it out and commence to FUCKIN’.

Who among us hasn’t found ourselves having a light soup ‘n’ salad lunch with a female colleague and felt an insatiable urge to fuck that lady RIGHT NOW OH MY GOD CAN’T STOP? Mike Pence and HARVEY WEINSTEIN have, apparently!

Oh, and the president of the United States too:

“I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”

They let him get away with anything, because he’s a celebrity. Grab ’em by the pussy. Whatever. And Billy Bush replied, “LOLOLOLBILLYBUSHLOLLOL!!!!!!11111!”

They just can’t stop themselves. (OR CAN THEY?)

If Mike Pence sees a pretty lady at an after-work function — and really, shouldn’t the White House stop blurring the lines between professional and personal? State dinners and Christmas parties? PFFFFFFT! And do not even get us started on that goddamned White House Easter Egg Roll — and Lime-A-Ritas are available, can he be blamed for needing to fuck her?

If Sebastian Gorka is introduced to a young blonde Nazi lady, how can he possibly NOT fuck her if he’s alone with her for a moment, especially if she starts quoting Hitler VERY SEXXXILY?

If Erick Erickson goes to a petting zoo without his wife and the goats are making real slutty bleating sounds that day …

AHEM.

Maybe these men are right. Maybe they should just all follow the Mother Rule, because if they’re so pathetic they literally can’t control themselves if there’s a human with XX chromosomes present, maybe they should just never leave the house ever, like Jessica Valenti suggested.

Barro writes in his column that the WEINSTEIN situation and others like it “require more than just the hand wave of ‘don’t harass women, it’s simple.'” But honestly, we think it is indeed that simple! The cultural change we need isn’t about changing the workplace environment or enshrining strict conservative Christian Jesus rules so men don’t get all rapey. The change we need is STOP TEACHING MEN, TACITLY OR OUT LOUD, THAT IT’S OK TO HARASS/ASSAULT/RAPE WOMEN.

To all the men, straight or gay (Barro!), writing their #HotTakes assigning blame anywhere away from HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S dick and the dicks of other men like him, we’re gonna need you to take a million steps back, STFU, do something wild and crazy like listen to women for once, and then come back when you have a #HotTake about changing the culture so that men, cradle to grave, are all taught that women ACTUALLY FOR REAL weren’t put on this earth to satisfy their sexual harassing/groping/assaulting/raping urges.

Jesus, it’s not that fucking complicated.

    This has been a rough week for feminists. On one hand, there’s something good happening when serial abusers/rapists are getting called out publicly for their serial abusing/raping. On the other hand, the next sentence in the call out is to blame some unrelated woman for not stopping him or denouncing him strongly enough in the opinion of some random dude. And Bernie Sanders is the keynote speaker for the women’s march? And fuck Anthony Bourdain?

    It’s not pretty behind the curtain for us ladies.

    • Internet Hitler

      You would think that except that’s not how it works. When someone is traveling on business, maybe to a film festival or other event, it would not be unusual for one (who is likely staying in a suite) to invite associates for meetings at the hotel, especially if there are multiple meetings arranged on the fly (so to speak). You can’t have six biz lunches in one day (can you?).

      The point is that No means No in ANY situation, and when conducting business you should behave in a businesslike manner, even if you’re conducting business at a party.

      • Darrell Imaginarian

        That’s not what I meant. They had no idea they were going to be alone with him.

  • marxalot

    Imagine you live in a medium sized town. Maybe it’s a college town. There are two or three liquor distributors in town, but one of them is clearly the biggest and best. Anyone who wants to open a bar, anyone with a catering budget, they go through this guy because he (and he runs the company with a real personal flair) makes things happen. He has friends on the Zoning Commission, he’s on the Better Business Bureau. He also writes (company) checks for the local Little League and his (personal) name appears in the back of programs from the local Arts Society, at the “Friend” donor level.
    Now, it suddenly blows up that this guy, this frigging guy, with all the friends and connections, who makes things happen for people, this guy has been harrassing women for years. Making quid pro quo and just for the hell of it. And when this comes out, imagine half the town turns cries out, demanding that the former president of the Arts Society denounce him.
    That’s what’s been going on here.

  • Anna Rompage

    Funny, being someone who’s queer, still has the sex drive of a 20 year old male, and swings pretty much any which way, I’ve never had the urge or desire to manipulate or try to force someone to sleep with me…

    Have I been flirty with folks I found attractive or that I’ve had a connection with? Oh hell yes…

    Have I tried to grope someone without consent, or promise them advancement, or threatened to punish them if they did not oblige my desires? Fucking hell no…

    What fucking fun can it be to do any of those things if the other person is not into it?

    Maybe the answer isn’t about avoiding being in the same room as someone who you have the desire to have sex with, but rather to see that person as another human being, with their own thoughts, integrity, desires, and boundaries, and if they’re into you, great. And if they’re not, then treat them like your brother of your sister…

    Why don’t they just come out and say what they really mean? What they really mean it “women are property and have no place out of the home/grocery store”. This is what they truly want, isn’t it?

    For fuckers like Weinstein, it’s never about sex. There’s no shortage of people willing to trade sexual favors for whatever (Looking at you, Melania). No, it’s always about power. It’s about controlling another human being’s most personal asset, their body.

    What makes sickos like Weinstein no different than modern conservatives is that they both want the same damned thing. They want women subjugated, silenced, diminished and invisible in every way that truly counts. It’s this sick psycho-sexual dynamic that crosses the Venn Diagram of the “Madonna/Whore” concept. Boys want a mother. Men want a lover. Idiots want both at the same time. Lunatics want both at the expense of whatever the woman thinks.

    So, to the American Taliban, stories like Weinstein’s are a godsend. It’s a new boogeyman they can throw around to intimidate women back into the kitchen. “Sure is dangerous in these spooky old woods,Little Red Riding Hood! Best be careful of wolves!” It’s bullshit. What’s worse is that it’s such transparent bullshit.

    The reason Trump said all of those horrible true things he said was, and we should all take a moment to let this sink in, that he was bragging in an attempt to impress Billy fucking Bush. And he’s the very same “man” in attitude and deportment to this very day that he was then. Billy Bush (of whom I am no great fan) lost his job for the crime of listening. We of course elected the other guy–the actual sex offender; the actual criminal in this story–President.

    Josh Barro blocked me because I called him on his horseshit one too many times.

    Fuck him…with Mike Dense’s withered dick.

    • mardam422

      It’s only horseshit if you aren’t Josh Barro.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    Samantha Bee is right. Don’t pull out your dicks. Simple. We don’t want to see them, and we’d like to have a conversation that doesn’t involve them. If you’re using them to get your way, because you love power, or because you can’t control yourself, you need to stay in your house alone forever.

    • Raan

      I have the same stance on dick exposure as I do entering a stranger’s home: it requires explicit approval.

  • Manders

    Barro writes in his column that the WEINSTEIN situation and others like it “require more than just the hand wave of ‘don’t harass women, it’s simple.’”

    Oh definitely. It requires more than a hand wave. It requires men fucking teaching their boys not to harass girls, and coming down on them like a ton of bricks if they do; it requires men to tell their buds to knock it the fuck off they catch them harassing women. It requires people not sweeping sexual abuse of any kind under the fucking rug like they’ve been doing for centuries.
    BUT ALSO, “DON’T HARASS WOMEN; IT’S SIMPLE” IS ALSO A THING THAT SHOULD BE SAID.
    DON’T HARASS WOMEN, OR YOU WILL BE FIRED.
    DON’T HARASS WOMEN, OR YOU WILL NOT HAVE A CAREER IN THIS TOWN.
    DON’T HARASS WOMEN, OR YOU WILL GET A LOUBOUTIN BETWEEN THE EYES.

    OT: Th next President, assuming there is one, is going to have to devote their entire presidency undoing all the damage this one has already caused.

    • Oblios_Cap

      Both terms. Like Obama.

      • Jack Takes A Knee

        And Clinton before him.

    • jesterpunk

      And the president after that is going to have to spend 2 terms also fixing the mess he has caused so far. Its not going to be easy or quick and is going to take a few administrations to do it.

      • Jack Takes A Knee

        It will be ongoing for an entire generation of people.

        • jesterpunk

          Just to get back to the point Obama started at. It’s not just the office it’s also replacing all the people who know how to get shot done in the lower level positions too.

    • Three Finger Salute

      The next president needs to be a woman. And not a woman-hating woman picked from the Stepford cult of the G.O.P. That’s really the only way to clean up this mess.

    Why so sexist, Teh Wonkette? “Mike Pence’s wife”? Seriously? Her identity is not solely tied to her relation to him. She has a name, you know: “Mother.”

    • AnnieGetYerFun

      Her identity is 100% tied to her only useful part: her uterus.

      • MuttsRule

        Actual quote from Mrs. Pence, from an interview with The Federalist:
        “I just wanted to be a mom. And so my main thing was, how
        could God put this desire in my heart and not bring me kids? And so,
        I’ve got to tell you, it made me question Him a lot. I kept thinking,
        we’d be these great parents; we’re ready; we want kids; why don’t You
        bring us kids? In retrospect, I look back, and I am so glad that we didn’t have our kids when we wanted to have them. The time that they came along was just the right timing. I even said that to my son’s wife recently. I said, ‘Boy, Sarah, I bet you’re glad that God didn’t bring Michael along until he did,’ because he ended up being her age. So, you know in retrospect, I see His perfect timing, which is always true, but at the time, I just kept thinking, I can’t believe He’s not giving us kids.” But then, God sent her to a good fertility doctor, apparently.

        • AnnieGetYerFun

          Oh, I actually had no idea about that. I just assumed that she birthed a million babbies the way Allah intended.

  • Moar Wordz

    Just read an article abt. Weinstein victims. He had power to dangle career opportunities to Women in Film if they just wouldn’t mind that he retired to the loo for a second, slipped into something more comfortable ( a robe open at the chestical level ) , and came out offering a massage or could they please massage him, no, LOWER DOWN. And if you would just consent (or not ! ASIA, blessed be her bravery in speaking out abt her sexual assault by Weinstein ) to the down -low , for two long horrible minutes, Weinstein will DEFINITELY make your ass a STAR. Or ruin your career if you refuse. Or dangle sweet, sweet roles and monies in front of you like a carrot while he massages HIS carrot, and comes into a potted plant in a Kitchen basement with you. Bet that plant kicked it afterwards, because YUCK.
    Then he will cry when you lock yourself in the bathroom to evade his gross advances. Or say your boyfriend is coming over, brandishing your Chihuahua in front of you like Mira Sorvino did.

  • Viktor

    So Mike Pence needs a Mother Rule, because without out it he’s Newt Gingrich. That makes sense.

  • I have been employed since I was sixteen with a few years off for college.
    I’ve never sexually harassed a woman. I know, right? Crazy.

    At one job, I asked a coworker out. She said she was busy. Three months later, I asked her out again. She said “no, thank you.” I never asked her out again and we continued to work together for three additional years before I moved on and had a good working relationship.

    I was asked out by another coworker at another job and she’s now my wife.

    I’ve worked with, supervised, and been managed by numerous men and women, gay folks and straight folks, and somehow have never sexually harassed a woman. I’ve been to work dinners, work parties, and work events and somehow never harassed or assaulted a coworker. And, gasp! Some of my coworkers I find physically attractive. I still don’t sexually harass them and would never assault them. I’m a professional and I love my spouse and harassment is just fucking wrong.

    I have good working relationships with everyone. I enjoy talking to some of my coworkers about life, our families, politics and life shit. Almost like they’re human beings.

    Seriously, people, this is not that fucking hard a concept.

    Do your goddamn job and respect other people.

    • laughingnome

      Same here – lots of women in my line of work and some of them I have been attracted to. Never thought of even asking them out because I didn’t want to complicate the situation at work. Now I’ve been married for many years and it’s just wrong. Now the potted plants are another story…

Have you defended women who complain? Have you made it known that you are an ally and can be counted on to corroborate and educate? I’m not saying you’re not doing these things, but you can’t #NotAllMen this stuff unless you are actively working to change the system, and not just, you know, not raping anybody.

    That they inherently KNOW she is the person that they turn to for comment, leadership and advice on intractable long-term problems.

    They are admitting that she should be our President right now. They are elevating her as the one spokesperson that definitely had to weigh in on it. Like you would for a person in very high office.

      BAD example.

And in later years, he took to sleeping with nude young women, supposedly to test his resolve to stay celibate.

    Mother do you think they’ll drop the bomb?
    Mother do you think they’ll like this song?
    Mother do you think they’ll try to break my balls?
    Mother should I build the wall?
    Mother should I run for president?
    Mother should I trust the government?
    Mother will they put me in the firing line?
    Mother am I really dying?

    A man rapes a woman, and it is because he is in the same room with a woman. Which means Erik son of Eric is basically saying men are base animals who cannot be trusted to control their own impulses and therefore should never be let out by themselves.

    It’s very difficult to be with women in nonprofessional situations because, how can you keep from assaulting them? I mean, there they are, being all free-range and everything. What’s a boy to do?

    That’s why, before I leave the house I always make sure to rubber cement my penis to my navel, wrap my testicles in aluminum foil, then seal the whole package in Saran Wrap, put on my pants, making sure to sew up any flys and zippers so that nothing can escape, and finally cover my entire lower section in caution tape, so that women are alerted to the danger within.

    This all worked great for a long time, until I met a gentleman who was apparently really into that sort of thing …

    … so I guess I’m gay now.

    I’ve reported this a couple of times before, but it’s too bizarre and on-topic not to share again.

    Pensacola Christian College is a favorite of the formerly home schooled. Its publishing company, A Beka Books, produces a lot of the texts and curriculum for homeschooling. (Dok did some reviews of the texts a few years ago.) Their campus is modern and tidy, and all the high rise buildings have separate stairwells and elevators for males and females. There are strict rules about male and female students being together unchaperoned.

    Students are encouraged to rat on each other. Cross-gender touching is strictly forbidden. Students therefore practice staring at each other deeply (“making eye babies”) in the absence of alternative outlets.

    • Serolf Divad

      Do you think the Pensacola Christian college newspaper has ever run a cartoon where a dorm master a with a stunned expression on his face walks into a room where a co-ed is being double-teamed by two guys and the guy working her from behind has a speech bubble over his head that explains, reassuringly: “It’s OK, I’m the chaperone!”?

      Yeeeeah… me neither.

  • Delu

    Someone made the observation that, apart from the fact that Gorka’s tweet is a Captain Obvious one (you can’t sexually assault a woman if you are not together with one, just like you can’t fuck a cat in the room you are in if there are no cats in that room to fuck), he’s also implying in the same tweet that either:

    a.) All men are liable to harass women if they care close to them, so avoiding them is best.

    b.) Mike Pence is liable to harass women (or actually WOULD do so) if they care close to them, so avoiding them is what he tries to do.

    Neither implications looks good for Pence but hey, thanks Gorka!

  • Serolf Divad

    So one of Mike Pence’s defenders is literally saying that if Pence ever wound up at dinner alone with a lady not his wife he couldn’t help but get all rapey on her?

    I was in a room with a lady I work with today. Grabbing her boobs didn’t even criss my mind one time! Hooray!!! I’m living proof that a guy dude can be in a room with a lady dude and not assault her! So maybe Mike Pence is a creepy old fuck who should go to jail!

    • Alternative Dog

      I know, right! You’d think someone like Erick Erickson would know better than to cover for that disgusting pig Weinstein by blaming it on the women. But then again, no one should trust the judgement of a person who is rumored to fuck goats.

  • abstract668

    I was at the Dodger game last Friday night with three friends, and realized that none of them were with their spouses, I’m single, and we were violating the Pence rule in countless ways! Yet no one felt compelled to violate anyone’s marriage vows, or harass anyone! And there was alcohol! And we all came of age in the 60s and 70s! And we left in male/female pairs due to the logic of where everyone lived! It was a MIRACLE!

  • SavageElbow

    The Pence rule isn’t about protecting women. It’s about protecting MEN from potential accusations of impropriety. They don’t give a fuck if women get harassed or abused. They just don’t want any more of their precious powerful pigs being brought down by their own grabby hands.

    • sgt. jmk of the résistance

      THIS EXACTLY.

      Nazi-Gorka and all the other dipshits blibbering about the Pence Rule are only concerned with whether they can be accused by one of those evil wimmenz who just keep going around making fake rape claims because something something Duke lacrosse team something something.

      They couldn’t give a rat’s ass about women.

  • Tosca

    The narrative I’m currently seeing is that Weinstein’s victims are to blame for how long his rape-spree continued. After all, if they’d ONLY REPORTED his criming at the time he’d crimed all over them, he would have been stopped by the proper authorities so it’s THEIR FAULT he was left free to harass other innocent women. After all, that’s why Bill Cosby’s streak of drugging and raping women was stopped so qui…oh.

    Yeah, that’s what I thought.

  • The Librarian

    Harvey Weinstein’s dick, like Anthony Weiner’s wiener, does not have a mind of its own. He cannot blame his dick for being a dick. He is supposed to be master of his own domain, which does not include anyone else’s domain, except by invitation only. There is no such thing as the invite was lost in the mail. No means no.

  • Molon Labe

    “…assigning blame anywhere away from HARVEY WEINSTEIN…”

    Wouldn’t that include crediting a generic rape-culture for Weinstein’s actions? Weinstein is a fat pig fuck who used his power to abuse women. If there is a culture at fault maybe its the shallow materialism of Hollywood? Within Hollywood Weinstein is nothing of an anomaly.

    “Absolute power corrupts absolutely”

    • sgt. jmk of the résistance

      Nope.

      “Generic rape-culture” is what produced Harvey Weinstein. It’s not being “credited” for his actions… it’s being cited as the environment in which he flourished. It shaped his attitudes toward women as much as it shaped the environment in which he harassed and attacked women with impunity.

      This isn’t due to the “shallow materialism of Hollywood.” It’s not about a wealthy film producer mindlessly acquiring expensive objects.

      This is about a man viewing women only as sexual objects, feeling that had the ability and the license to harass and attack them without consequence because they were women. This is about a culture in which men commit acts like his frequently and without consequences…one in which women aren’t believed, or are belittled as “overreacting,” or are dismissed as complicit in the attacks on them because they are women.

      And if you think that Hollywood is the only place in which Weinstein is “nothing of an anomaly,” then you haven’t been paying attention.

      • Molon Labe

        If this victimization is can be explained due to the a rape culture in which women are sexualized and oppressed simply “because they are women”, then how do you account for the male victims? How do you account for the child victims?

        There is something more complex here than “men bad”. Not all men are rapists. Not all men believe rape is acceptable. Rape is not culturally acceptable in the US.

        Materialism is a deeper concept than “acquiring expensive objects”. Even the poorest person can be materialistic. Its an over-investment in the material world. Which is something Hollywood personifies. I don’t know if there is a correlation but it could explain why this abuse seems so prevalent in the entertainment industries and amongst influential figures.

        • (((Aron)))

          Please point out his child and male victims.

          I can wait.

          But please, in he meantime, make sure you build more strawmen.

        • sgt. jmk of the résistance

          Do you make those straw men yourself, or do you get them from a dealer?

    • (((Aron)))

      NOOOOO.

  • Jennaratrix

    Someone I work with is of the Pence school; can’t be alone with a woman not his wife. He didn’t understand me when I said that if men didn’t assume that being alone with a woman meant something sexual was automatically going to happen,then he wouldn’t NEED to have such strict rules about it because NO ONE would assume anything hinky had happened just because he and a woman not his wife had been in the same place. He looked at me like I was crazy, and apparently I am; apparently, it’s only women who are under the impression that we should be able to be in a room or a car or an elevator or a train or a street or an office or a gas station or a grocery store parking lot or a party or a bar near a man and NOT get “complimented,” asked out, harassed, groped, or raped.
