Alec Baldwin’s Homophobic Twitter Rant – Double Standards For ‘Liberal’ Men?

alec-baldwin-point

 

Honestly. I’ve been turning into a loud, angry feminist this week, starting off with a certain “state” in the country–I mention no names. (My apologies to my beloved SilverFox husband, for my own rants.) Just know, I’ll be all over the map on this post, as I tend to do when something really gets my wet, stinky goat.

By now, everyone knows about the fallout from Paula Deen’s use of a completely unacceptable word. Dropped like a hot tater by EVERY SINGLE professional partnership she ever signed on with–and rightly so. My question to you is, why the gotdamnhell does Alec Baldwin continually get away with nasty behavior and slurs?

Let’s take a look at Baldwin’s rant on Twitter yesterday, as he “defended” his wife when she was accused of Tweeting during James Gandolfini’s funeral in New York yesterday:

Um. Wow. That’s some ugly Tweeting right there. Does Baldwin get away with this kind of talk because, allegedly, he’s a liberal man?? God knows, we’ve crucified (ahem) Mel Gibson for the bile he has spewed, but he’s a known conservative nutball, right? What if, say, Melissa McCarthy were the one in question here? What kind of backlash would she be getting? Fired from CBS? Boycotting of her new film? I guaran-effing-TEE we’d being seeing some woman-hate and not merely a collective shrug-off like, “oh, that ALEC and his silly temper!” I don’t see Capitol One dropping his ass, do you?

In other words, Baldwin gets a giggly-pass for his Words With Friends On A Plane performance, another Twitter rant regarding a Starbuck’s barista.

Oh. Does anyone remember the voicemail Mr. Baldwin left his then 11-year old daughter, Ireland for not answering her phone at the designated time? Do the words “thoughtless little pig” ring a bell? Let me refresh your memory:

Is it just me? Or does this award-winning blow-hard just GET to do this shit?  What are your feelings on this guy?  I know of one journalist who doesn’t take kindly to Baldwin’s dirty mouth:

I believe Alec Baldwin could PUBLICLY call a woman the c-word and get away with doing so, because it’s a man’s world.

You can quote me on that.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2012 Inductees Announced – Where’s Joan Jett?

G 'n R

It’s a man’s world.  We all know it — but I’ll say it again. It’s a man’s world.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2012 Inductees were announced today to a bunch of dudes, and a bone (pun not intended, but is fitting) was thrown to one woman.  The five inductees in the performer category are as follows: Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, Laura Nyro, the collected bands The Small Faces / The Faces, and Beastie Boys.

Joan Jett DESERVED to be inducted. Gyaaah.

No Joan Jett.  No Heart.  No Donna Summer….but mostly?  NO JOAN MF-ING JETT???

Now we all get to see who will show up at the induction ceremony, besides Paul Schaffer. Will Axl blow the whole thing off?  (I’m thrilled for Duff McKagen, I must admit.)

Maybe Paul can have the bands all join him in his classic, “It’s Raining Men” for the all-star closing performance.  Seems appropriate.

Now I’m crabby.

Monster Kanye West Loves Dead White Women

That's it...prop up the dead white girl.

Happy Monday!  How’s that for a headline, kids?

Honestly.  Just when I thought this video had crashed and burned a few months back when it offended dead white women everywhere quite a few folks, it seems it has reared its ugly head hanging by a noose once again.  Awesome.

via HuffPo:

“[t]he video launches into women hanging by nooses, Kanye setting up a threesome with corpses, Jay-Z raps over dead women…”

 

Here’s the kicker: Kanye, et al, actually believe that by placing this lame little “disclaimer” on this piece of negative and misogynistic (HIS words!) post-snuff film, we’re just supposed to be cool with these images.

“The following content is in no way to be interpreted as misogynistic or negative towards any groups of people. It is an art piece and it shall be taken as such…”

What’s with the word “SHALL” up there?  Don’t command me regarding when not to be offended, asshole.  As much as you think that you’re Jesus, you’re not.

Meanwhile, Rihanna is still being bitched about for her “revenge” video, Man Down, wherein it is (very subtly) depicted that she was raped.

Clearly, violence against women will always be cool…and even hot and sexy, right? Right??
