I am sick of hearing middle aged white dudes bitching about the emasculation of men in modern society. Really? You don’t like how you are portrayed on TV, commercials, movies, magazines and on the internet? It doesn’t seem fair? That’s not who you REALLY are? Try being a woman. We’ve had to deal with it our entire lives…since the dawn of civilization. When feminists complain they are told to have a sense of humor and get over it. Well dudes…it’s your turn.
TV shows like “Man Up,” “Last Man Standing,” and “How To Be A Gentleman” have struck a chord with American males who are insecure in their masculinity and to be honest, it’s pathetic and I’m sick of hearing about it.
Here are a few of my thoughts on the issue:
1. If, in the middle of the worst recession since the Great Depression you feel so slighted by society that you have to blog and tweet and write indignant Facebook status updates about how you feel emasculated by TV shows…if during a national economic disaster your slighted masculine ego takes precedence over all other troubles plaguing society…you need to get a grip. Do you have any idea what kind of incredible pu$$ you sound like? Get a sense of humor for fu¢k sake. Stop taking yourself so seriously. I hate to break it to you but your masculinity is at the bottom of society’s To-Do list at the moment.
2. Get a hobby. If you’re spending time every day thinking, worrying and feeling angry about your own personal emasculation…you need to get a job or find a passion in life. Art? Woodwork? Playing football? Cooking? Charity? Politics? Education? Social issues? Mixed martial arts? Stand-up comedy? There are so many better things you could be doing with your time.
3. Have you ever considered that it’s not an “emasculation” as much as it is the natural evolutionary cycle of human beings? Being a dandy use to be quite popular. I’m not saying that modern men are dandies because they are far from it, but I think that it’s natural for things to swing in different directions over time. If you don’t like the swing, get outta the playground.
4. Now let’s talk about video games. Don’t get your boxer briefs in a wad when other people tease you or make fun of you for playing your little games. Just enjoy it. It’s as silly as a pole dancing workout. Some women like to spend their free time pretending to be strippers and you spend your free time pretending to be a soldier fighting an imaginary war. It’s funny…it’s cute…deal with it. It doesn’t make you any less of a “man.” What DOES make you less of a man is not having a sense of humor about the absurdity of your own reality.
These are a few of the MANY reasons I’m looking forward to watching shows like “Man Up.” Thank God someone has a sense of humor about their own masculinity.
So next time you are feeling indignant about your masculinity and you want to take your hurt feelings out on the nearest sitcom…ask yourself if the lady doth protest too much. Is society making you feel emasculated or is it something inside you? Remember, John Wayne wore make-up to work every day.
What’s going on here with NBC’s “Free Agents?” The romantic comedy is centered around Hank Azaria and Katheryn Hahn. I’m hearing rumblings that people better tune in if they want to continue seeing episodes on their televisions. It’s on the edge.
Celebrities are tweeting support for their friends in the shows.
I enjoy the show. It’s cute and funny and Kathryn Hahn is hilarious. I love her in this. I loved her in Crossing Jordan, and I love her in this. I like the supporting actors and characters. I like all the modern references and internet jokes, like referring to people by their online handles. That’s all cute. I just don’t like Hank Azaria. He’s not attractive and he not likable. Pretty much every girlfriend I’ve talked to about the show, has said the same thing. Everyone likes the show but they don’t like Hank Azaria.
I don’t think they should get rid of the show, I think they should get rid of Hank Azaria and go in a different direction here. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water!
All I know is that if you want to continue to see more episodes of Free Agents, you need to tune in and get your friends to tune in.
This is Demi Moore‘s twitter reaction to all the tabloid and gossip buzz about her husband Ashton Kutcher banging a broad in a San Diego hotel on their 6th anniversary. Looks like some Oprah style bullshit to me.
Oh and she also plastered her Twitter page with wallpaper of her crotch.
Classy! I think Ashton has one just like it in Los Angeles though. A newer model in fact. I don’t mean to be cynical but did anybody think this was going to last? To be honest they lasted a lot longer than I thought. He doesn’t need a baby sitter anymore, he can go out on his own. Is it any coincidence that as soon as he gets a huge paying job he ditches the old model for a newer one? Not that he hasn’t been test driving newer models for years.
Am I the only person who literally can’t stand the promos and posters for the show “Whitney”? It’s so hacky…
“Half of all marriages end in… SWEAT PANTS!” What is this? A Cathy cartoon? The couple in the series is supposedly “happily unmarried” and Whitney seems to be some kind of nymphomaniac.
I appreciate having alternative leading characters in your sitcom who aren’t your average married couple, but it seems that the only benefit to “living is sin” is that the women is constantly pressured to put on tight miniskirts and sexy Halloween nurse costumes to keep her boyfriend interested in having sex with her… and even then, from the trailers, he’s still not that into doing it with her.
The Whitney girl is skinny, which usually translates to “sexy” in Hollywood. I mean, she’s got no curves and the only time you notice her boobs is when they pack them in tight so that she can rest her chin on them, and she’s not pretty in the face AT ALL and she seems like a jerk. I’m not sure why her boyfriend or friends hang out with her because from what you see in the trailers, she’s a selfcentered jerk who has nothing more than snarky/sarcastic comments to offer on whatever is going on.
So basically Whitney is a bitter, single , middle-aged woman who believes that she can make herself feel better about not being married by constantly spewing out hacky little quips about why marriage sucks, and has to constantly act like a whore in an attempt to try to trick her boyfriend into having sex with her.
Actually, she sounds like a few girls I know… or USE TO know because I don’t really bother hanging out with them anymore. In the end those girls end up single. The men that they have had long-term relationships with fuck them for a few years and then break-up with them and I usually get a hysterical call from them a few months later about how he’s suddenly engaged and getting married (to some girl who isn’t an asshole and cares about more than sex.) So that’s what I predict will happen to the couple in Whitney.
Wow, I recorded this show thinking she’d say something cool and smart and interesting but what a hateful, selfish, degrading, mean, nasty-ass cunty bitch she’s become. Remember all the things that use to make her cool and interesting? They’re totally gone. All that’s left is the cunty party.
She literally has nothing smart, cool, interesting, or meaningful to say at all. She’s mean to her son and her husband/boyfriend/dickless-slave-hippy guy that sits around smiling like an idiot all the time. I’m guessing she keeps him around because she doesn’t want to be alone, and I doubt many people in her life want to spend any real time with her. I always thought she was cool, but now I realize the Tom Arnold was the cool one of the two. I never thought I’d ever say anything like this but Tom Arnold is waaaay too good for her.
The things she says on this show are REVOLUTIONARY if it were 1970. Instead of inspiring people, she basically makes young women glad they’re not her. Removing it from my Tivo NOW. I am trying so hard to get through an entire episode but it’s really difficult. She’s as hateful as any Jersey Shore or House Wives of whatever cast member on any of those hateful reality shows.
She wishes her parents sent her to college? Why didn’t she go to college and pay for it herself like most people do. My mom raised 4 kids all by herself, and then went back to college and paid for it herself and got a Master’s Degree. What an entitled asshole Roseanne is. She could go to college now. She’s uneducated because she wants to be uneducated.
The most interesting thing about her or this show is her gray hair.
Bitter much? Stay on that island bitch.
But now he’s like Crystal Meth/Cancer thin and it’s creepy.
Creepy as fuck.
It won’t last though. He’ll gain some weight back at some point. All the fatties who drastically drop weight like this put it back on. It’s just a matter of time. I hope.
Now there’s a GILF (Guy I’d Like To Fuck)!
And don’t give me shit about comparing him to a cancer victim. My mom died of cancer so fuck the fuck off. (Hi mom!)

I wish that I had as much love in me as Mariah Carey has for everything in the world. This makes me LOVE her!
I know that people are kind of giving Mariah crap about this appearance on the Home Shopping Network but I love it. There’s so much hate in the world. If everyone loved each other as much as Mariah loves hoop earrings, the world would truly be a better place.
Super excited about the new ABC series Man Up! that premieres on Oct. 18th at 8:30pm. The show stars Chris Moynihan (who also created the show from For Your Consideration and Coupling), Mather Zickel (Reno911, Rachel Getting Married & I Love You Man) & Dan Fogler (Balls of Fury & Take Me Home Tonight), but also includes Teri Polo, Amanda Detmer and Henry Simmons who are hilarious. Everyone in the cast stands out in a different way. I really didn’t know what to expect when I borrowed the pilot from a friend, but it was really funny and got me excited to see more. Really funny writing as well. Strong scripts and a strong cast make me think this show has a fighting chance… if you can get beyond the “emasculated man” hype.
I’ve been reading a lot of online reviews of the show, even one from a girl who had not seen the pilot and admitted that the online trailer looked hilarious but that she just had a gut feeling that the show will suck. I thought that was hilarious. She also called the show a dramedy, it’s not. It’s a full on single camera comedy. Also a lot of reviews are focusing on this whole “emasculated man” element to the show which is kind of bullshit. The show is just funny and the men aren’t emasculated, they are just middle class dudes with modern middle class dude problems. I mean men don’t have to hunt for their food, or fight in wars (at the moment) or build their own houses. Most of the people I know, (men and women) struggle with the same feelings that the lead character Will seems to have. Is it enough? Am I doing enough? Should I be doing something else? Something more? Am I man or woman enough? Women who can’t cook or sew, and men who can’t change the oil in a car, or rewire a lamp. That’s what we’ve become.
That’s pretty much what the show is about. The characters are all striving to better themselves and go to ridiculous and comedic lengths to try to be the ideal husband/father/employee and figure out where they belong in society. Things we pretty much all (or at least I) feel at some point or another on a daily or weekly basis. Then there’s also just a lot of funny stuff that happens along the way. Some of the comedy is over the top, and some of it is so subtle that you might not even notice it. I watch the pilot a couple times and noticed things the second or third viewing that I completely missed the first go around.
So anyway… there are a few shows that look really good to me this year. I also love Up All Night and I also saw a pilot that I thought I would hate. I friggin’ HATE Glee so when my boyfriend put SMASH into the DVD player, I was fully prepared to check my Facebook for the next hour but I was crying like a girl (which I am) by the end. I hate myself for liking that show but that will have to be another blog post.
If you go to the website the first thing you see is:
Liberals, commies, democrats, Muslims, folks on welfare, socialists, folks who love Obama, folks who don’t confess Jesus as their savior: JUST GET THE HELL GONE!
Wait? What? Who is this crazy person? I love it! I must know more! I need to read the shit out of this blog!
My friend sent me to this website that I thought was real for a few minutes – for those few minutes it was awesome… even GLORIOUS.
Prophetess Debbie is some chick or dude who pretends to be this Christian lady prophet who is ordained by God to speak for him and his son, the sweet baby Jesus.
But then you realize pretty quickly that it’s just somebody trolling people on the internet. If you’re freaking out over this Prophetess Debbie person you need to really wake the fuck up. It’s not really my kind of humor. It’s like a drag show or burlesque show – you see one, you’ve seen them all. You read one blog post on this site and you’ve pretty much read them all. They’re all just kinda the same. She says crazy shit and claims to be a prophet, and people believe her (or him) and leave angry and outraged comments. Over and over and over again.
In one blog entry “Prophetess Debbie” calls Caylee Anthony’s murder “Justifiable Homicide“which is just silly, and then makes a bunch of crazy statements about how God told her that Caylee was an evil, devil spawn child who deserved to be killed… and as you’d expect Christians get all upset that she’s giving Christians a bad name. She refers to Casey Anthony as a “sister in Christ” and talks about how Casey was just doing God’s work when she killed Caylee. You get it. That kind of shit.
When stupid people get mad at her, she responds with things like this…
It’s hard to read because it’s small but it says, “I rebuke you! And I plead the power of the BLOOD of the Perfect Lamb over my life and this message board. I pray that Jesus rapes you and your children (both male and female) to teach you a lesson about besmirching and slandering his anointed.”
I mean seriously, if you’re gonna get raped… may as well be by the best, right?
This comment actually made me laugh but was also the comment that confirmed my suspicions that the site was fake… I suspected right away, but wasn’t sure, so I kept reading but it becomes obvious pretty quick. Don’t get me wrong, the site is worth a few minutes of your time. Leave a comment, pretend to be angry or pretend to agree with her, like most people do in the comments. Seems like most people get what’s going on on the site, just a few who are sadly in the dark or pretending to be. I started to think that this person who pretends to be Debbie was also making up characters and leaving themselves comments to respond to, which is entirely possible as well but who knows.
I wish to God that the Prophetess Debbie were real. Please Jesus, strike down this demon who pretends to be Debbie and create a REAL DEBBIE!
She has friends who also pretend to be crazy Christians like this lady: Betty Bowers who makes videos on YouTube. I couldn’t get more than a few seconds into any of the videos without clicking away. I mean the only interesting thing about religious zealots like this are that they are being sincere… That’s what makes them funny to me. Maybe I’m just jaded. Maybe I’m just too bummed that Debbie isn’t real to enjoy the site once I figured it out. I don’t know.
Both of these fake ladies seem like characters from True Blood – Vampire haters or something. I love that photo of Debbie that she uses. It’s pretty good.
What’s your favorite fake website character/troll?
