Quote# 41588

It takes vision to see what is in front of your eyes.

"Slovenly" "Drab" Unkempt" "Slatternly" "Blowzy" --many adjectives describe most women who wear jeans.

Since I noticed this trend, I am appalled by its pervasiveness. At least half of the women I see are wearing jeans.

Occasionally they are with husbands also clad in blue denim, emphasizing the unisex character of this proletarian garb. Occasionally there is an eldest daughter also wearing blue jeans, already promised to the cult of androgyny.

But usually these women are alone and don't look happy. Often they look angry or lost. Usually they are talking on a cell phone or listening to their ipod.

Men, if you're tempted by such a woman, her jeans are a signal that you may have to deal with "GID" --"gender identity disorder." Her jeans are saying: "I don't want to be a woman. I don't want to look good for men. I fear and distrust men. I want male prerogatives. I want to look like a man. I want to be a man."

Feminism which espoused "women's rights" actually has driven femininity underground, torn the sexes asunder, and stripped woman of recognition for being wives and mothers, roles essential to their own fulfillment, to men, and to children and society.

"Save the males?"

Lessee.. 6.6 billion people on the planet, and they're either male or female.. so, logically, there are roughly 3 billion males on the planet. That's hardly "endangered" or in need of saving.

:P

Strange, I would have expected Henry to also express his fear that these women won´t obey her husband but dare to have their own opinions about things.

Man, if jeans are this bad, I wonder what this guy would have to say about the crappy old pair of sweatpants I'm wearing right now...

I actually like being female, and most of the other women I know agree with me on that one. Wanting the same rights as someone else is not the same thing as wanting to be that person. I'd love to have Paris Hilton's money... but there is no way in hell I'd ever want to be her.

And yet these same people would be the first in line to call a woman a slut if the jeans she was wearing were hip-huggers, low-riding, or otherwise tight and attention-drawing.

I'm actually confused by this. He's complaining that women who wear jeans *don't* want to look good for men. Leaving aside the fact that this is obviously untrue, I thought that women weren't supposed to dress in sexually-provocative ways to draw the attention of men?

Ah, the virgin/whore duality. We women just can't win, can we?

My jeans say "my ass looks good in these jeans". And if I don't look happy while listening to my iPod, it's probably because some yoyo like Mr Makow is yakking too loudly next to me and I can't hear my music.

I am a man, and I don't own a single pair of jeans. My beautiful fiancee, however, wears them nearly every day. I must say, there is absolutely nothing true about that "I don't want to look good for men" part.

Allegory for Jesus

What the hell is "blowzy"? And why do you think that what a woman wears has any bearing on their character, their demeanor, or even the general appearance? Women in jeans are just as feminine as those in skirts. Come...come into the 20th century...I assure you, the process will be painless, and maybe, in time, you eventually catch up with the rest of society, and become a fully functional member of 2ist century America. But no promises...

Incidentally, Kathleen Parker (righty columnist) has put out a book called "Save the Males" in which she decries "feminized" men.

All the men I know love women in a nice fitting pair of jeans. But then again, they are fairly normal...unlike ol' Henry here.

Wait, here, let me get it before anyone else does. "Not fundie! Waaah!! I rank it a 1!! Why don't we stick to fundie quotes!?"

(But seriously, I totally voted this up. I can't stand that psychopath, and I've written blog entries about him.)

Yeah, look at her! She's obviously confused about her gender, right?

Jeans! Jeans are to blame! Of course! It's all so clear to me now!

Obviously this guy has never seen how good designer jeans can look on a woman... Meow.

""Slovenly" "Drab" Unkempt" "Slatternly" "Blowzy""

Are not words... Well, some aren't.

"But usually these women are alone and don't look happy. Often they look angry or lost."

Because they're outside. Nobody wants to be outside.

"Men, if you're tempted by such a woman, her jeans are a signal that you may have to deal with "GID" --"gender identity disorder.""

I would be gay for a lesbian.

Hehehehe... another pathetic loser who's not getting any. Well, maybe this vent will make him feel better.

Oh, shut up, you useless misogynist. You have no idea what you're talking about.

It takes vision to see what is in front of your eyes.

"Slovenly" "Drab" Unkempt" "Slatternly" "Blowzy" --many adjectives describe most women who wear jeans.

O NOES! Not jeans!

Since I noticed this trend, I am appalled by its pervasiveness. At least half of the women I see are wearing jeans.

O NOES! Not jeans!

Occasionally they are with husbands also clad in blue denim,

So?

emphasizing the unisex character of this proletarian garb.

O NOES! I guess you'll have to be against t-shirts and necklaces too.

Occasionally there is an eldest daughter also wearing blue jeans, already promised to the cult of androgyny.

Uh, huh?

But usually these women are alone and don't look happy. Often they look angry or lost.

O RLY?

Usually they are talking on a cell phone or listening to their ipod.

So?

Men, if you're tempted by such a woman, her jeans are a signal that you may have to deal with "GID" --"gender identity disorder."

An where did you get your doctorate?

Her jeans are saying: "I don't want to be a woman. I don't want to look good for men.

Bull-fucking-shit. I know plenty of sexy women in jeans.

I fear and distrust men. I want male prerogatives. I want to look like a man. I want to be a man."

O RLY? And you know this how?

Feminism which espoused "women's rights" actually has driven femininity underground, torn the sexes asunder, and stripped woman of recognition for being wives and mothers, roles essential to their own fulfillment, to men, and to children and society.

O NOES!. DIAF.

It doesn't take much vision to see what is in front of your eyes:

"Slovenly", "Drab", "Unkempt", "Sloppy", "Unshaven", "Vacuous"--many adjectives describe many men who wear jeans.

See, we can dish it out too, fucko.

And it's a funny thing, my husband told me that it all goes downhill when women STOP wearing jeans and start living in loose-fitting attire. I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder.

My wife wears jeans. If Henry wants to talk shit about my wife, he can come say it to my face. Won't he feel stupid when he sees my wife in jeans feeding her horses and cleaning their stalls.

Y'aint been t'tha farm, boy?

No straight man doesn't appreciate the look of a woman's ass in jeans.

Oh, and did you guys read the whole article? It's just a crockpot of crazy.

And then there's the other half of the fundies saying "wimmun in pants are slaves of the dibble". I guess Henry's never noticed that most women's jeans aren't the same as men's jeans.

[""Slovenly" "Drab" Unkempt" "Slatternly" "Blowzy""

Are not words... Well, some aren't.]

Yeah, they're all words, some of them just haven't been used much since Shakespeare's time.

Hey Madcow, are these feminine and non-androgynous enough for ya? I hear it's the new trend:

Because a woman can't look attractive and feminine in jeans, fer chrissakes?

We really need to start MSTDT, (misogynists say the damndest things).

Edit: and H(Homophobes)STDT while we're at it. Alot of this stuff isn't exactly fundie, but ridiculous nonetheless.
