A New Play called SLUT won’t “combat sexism” and the authors know it; Feminists AGAIN refuse to call out Big Media’s gendered hate speech

Well well, ain’t that somen’…the Feminist Press is glad standing “SLUT
A Play and Guidebook for Combating Sexism and Sexual Violence,” or so they say. Well, disclaimer, I’ve not read the play, but I can tell you one fact: no play will change the SLUTing that Hollywood does to women each and every night of the week on primetime TV.

Feminist Press is all whoopppppie pie happy about SLUT. Here is what they have to say about SLUT, the play:

Remember the slut at your school? Whether used as a slur or reclaimed as an expression of sexy confidence, this word has been used as an acceptable excuse for rape, bullying, and the sexual double standard….this riveting, critically acclaimed play, written in collaboration with New York City high school students, sheds light on enduring feminist issues.

Well, all this adds up to is an obscure play written by a couple of women who want to make money off the Slut word. If the two play authors, Katie Cappiello & Meg McInerney, REALLY wanted to change our culture they would DEMAND Hollywood and Big Media ban the S word, in the same way they’ve banned the N word. Don't hold your breath. These women know that would blacklist them.

Only a moron wouldn’t understand that popular culture is where kids cut their teeth on Slut and Bitch and Whore and Cunt. Funny Ha, ha. Bridesmaids star Missy Kristin Wiig, calls a teen girl a cunt for laughs. David Letterman mainstreams whore at the drop of a slut. Bitch is so common on TV that is might as well sub in for any common article, say, the, or an. But a play that AT Most a few thousand will see, is not gonna change nuttn'. snore.

And for that matter, speaking of plays…..how about demanding that Broadway plays (one ones at least a reportable faction of the public actually sees) boycott the S, B, W and C words. Almost any sampling of Broadway mainstreams gendered hate speech and almost always for a sexist laugh.

Nathan Lane’s latest “It’s Only a Play” uses cunt repeatedly. Why? To mainstream sexism in the masses. So in the end, if women want to do more than make a “feminist” name for themselves, ….if they REALLY want to make life better for women and girls, then they are gonna have to risk the BIG ire of Big Media and Demand an end to S, W, B and C in common usage, just as Big Media demanded an end to Nigger and Faggot as common terms of disparagement for blacks and gays or anyone else for that matter.

If you watch HBO you'll see

If you watch HBO you'll see that slut and bitch are every third word. Unbelievable misogyny.
