Tony Weiner: Feminized Playboy in the Chickified Political Universe
Have I not warned everyone about this: The chickification of the news, the chickification of our culture? It’s perfectly fine to do this. It’s perfectly fine to sit there and discuss this as a hypothetical. “There’s something about a group of men and testosterone making risky decisions that’s very real,” but you put a bunch of women in these kind of decisions and that kind of thing isn’t gonna happen. There not gonna be that much testosterone there. So the assumptions that are being made here go back to earlier periods of feminism. Fathers, men, were natural predators. That they really had no redeeming qualities; the purpose of women was to tame them, to socialize them.
And then if you pointed out that, boy, they really hated you — even though those are the circumstances that they set up; the only conclusion you could come to based on the criteria they set forth. It’s stunning here that you have this situation and yet this now is looked upon as a robust opportunity, a good moment for women. Now, Claire Shipman. Keep in mind she’s married to Jay Carney, so she’s obviously not a fan of testosterone, and we knew that going in even before she said it. (interruption) Well, Snerdley, what do you expect me to say? It’s true. Even before she makes the comments, it’s true. I just find this fascinating, this either/or business. Diversity is the solution here. (interruption)
No, women are not crooks. They can’t be crooks. It’s impossible for them to be crooks. It’s impossible for women to engage in sexual missteps like Weiner did. Of course, who are all those school teachers that are engaging in predatory behavior with young male — young boy — students? Who are those people? This is absurd. You know, here’s the thing. I wonder: Why is it that Anthony Weiner turns out to be the kind of guy he is? How does that happen? If we’re gonna bring this stuff up, folks, let’s talk about it. Let’s bring it up! What kinda women has Anthony Weiner been around his whole life? He has been around a bunch of these kinds of women who have been attacking testosterone, who have been attacking traditional male roles.
He’s been around women to whom the idea of a real guy is some metrosexual. Is it any wonder, ladies and gentlemen? I wonder if it occurs to women like Claire Shipman or “Torie” Clarke that Weiner did what he did because he’s been surrounded with women like them for his whole adult life. You know, I told you that I had this story from last week. Hollywood is working on four or five (it might even be six) sitcoms about how men have basically just been just beaten down to pantywaist, Milquetoast wimps — and they’re comedies. It’s in vogue to make fun of weak, worthless, wimp sissies. That’s who the men are in these upcoming shows. Now, how do these men turn out that way? Who makes them that way?
