Feminist Update: Women Ogling Women and Camille Paglia on Hollywood White Girls

Ladies and gentlemen, we do not require a photo ID in selecting or voting for the leader of the free world, but you cannot adopt a “Dear Santa” letter at the post office without showing an ID. It’s just mind-boggling. As you know, ladies and gentlemen, over the years, as host of this program and others and as a participant on many other programs, I have had my share of run-ins when I’ve engaged in discussions involving women. From the early days of feminism to the realization that there were feminazis, and even to just innocent, everyday discussions of women and women and men, relationships, I seem to always find myself in boiling water. It’s never eventless.

And one such time — and I forget when I first articulated it — must have been Kansas City back in the 1970s, I was either hosting a show or guesting on one, and I made the observation that guys never notice it, but women spend more time inspecting other women than men do. I said women are inherently more judgmental of other women than men are, and you wouldn’t believe the hell that raised, among women. “How dare you? Everybody knows that men don’t do anything but ogle and inspect and approve.”

And I said, “Yeah, but, you know what? Men never notice it because they’re busy looking, too.” But I said this is my example. Go walking down the street. If you as a guy happen to see an attractive woman, you’re looking at her. What you’re not noticing is every other woman looking at her, and if they disapprove of her, they’re staring daggers at her. “How dare she wear her hair like that? How dare she wear a skirt that short, who does she think she is?” Well, I’d offer this opinion based on intelligence guided by experience, and all hell would break loose. I was violating some sort of convention or custom. I know I’ve been right about this from even before I talked about it.

UK Daily Mail. The story is from December the 5th, a couple days ago. “When it comes to checking out competition women should not worry about men checking them out — but women instead. Women spend more time ogling other females than their male partners do.” Now, why is that? Okay, do you want me to get into further trouble? I’m not trying to. This is just one of these things you better not be right about or you’re gonna be in big trouble. But I’ll tell you what’s going on and I’ll tell you right now whether or not I’ve hit or scored by virtue of Dawn’s facial expressions, the only woman here I can use to judge this.
