A man describes the gang rape of a non-person human --the media eggs him on!

The word bitch is used to dehumanize the female. The above is an eyewitness account of the rape of the Richmond female as told to a reporter (who btw, is excellent at his job) at the San Francisco Chronicle. link below
As women on the blogosphere wring their hands and wonder, my o my, how COULD this happen, I give you this:
These are all actually words used in a “light-hearted” comedy “The Proposal” starring Sandra Bullock who is precise and demanding in her job. That is her crime; for that she is reduced to IT status, Monster status, poisonous bitch status. Told, because she has fired a man who is overly-smitten with himself and unable to deliver at work, that she is destined to die alone. All for fun Ms. Bullock is reduced to IT status.
IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TO RAPE AN IT.
Note in the above true-life scenario what happened to the girl the moment she fought back, who acted not demure but ferocious in her attempt to keep a male from doing what he felt entitled to do—anything he pleased. She was immediately consumed.
Oh my, oh dear these men are monsters...so goes the echos on many 3rd wave women’s blogs. There is the Mommy thing to do: send money so this poor ruined --yes her life and every relationship she ever has will effectively be tainted by this brutality—girl can “heal.”
But where are the LOUD and united calls to demand from our culture an end to media tolerated dehumanization of our women? Instead we seem to think there is nothing to be done but send flowers or a check. Or in the worst cases, ignore the attack because minority men were involved.
Teh movie "True Lies" came on TV a while back; I jotted notes: in one segment Big Arnold, hero, is flirting with a woman as his CIA men in a car listen in. Here are some lines:
This is entitlement by male and dehumanization of female. Isn’t it ironic that media loves to portray women as “entitled creatures, callous and unhuman” --if they are not mired in poverty that is—when in fact our society has one enduring message to men: you are entitled to treat women as ITs. In fact a recent study found that when men looked at pretty young girls in bathing suits the part of their brain associated with the use of tools lit up!
Sandra Bullock should be totally shame-faced that she allowed herself to be party to bigotry. And tonight, channel surfing, I came across the most horrendous movie: "Knocked Up." Beautiful woman fall for unattractive guy who is little more than a dope head. Yeah there’s that tired message that no woman is beyond the scope of any man….and that an abortion is out of the question, indoctrination snore. But the writers also had a female character say:
Why in God’s name do women allow themselves to be used in this fashion? “These little bitches” just furthers the idea that women are things, not fully human and should be called the equivalent of the N word …because, in this case, they are ...gasp ...young. I guess being under the age of 40 is also cause for bitch now.
Now I shall leave you with something a conservative on the Mclaughlin Group said this morning. He wondered if the liberals were out to dehumanize (my word, I think he said attack) Rep. Michele Bachmann in the manner they did to Palin and Hillary. He gave as an example a quote by Montel Williams who said:
I had to google Montel Williams, but evidently he is liberal black male on Air America, the liberal talk radio that has become little more than a misogyny outpost. (see, Randi Rhodes also Air America sexist rants.)
So perhaps Montel would like us to offer him a rope? Just enough to hang himself? From a tree? Only thing is we just don’t lynch uppity blacks anymore, but we do gang rape uppity women who have the nerve to fight back, physically or rhetorically. Women are proscribed from fighting. Remember that a misogynist woman, Samantha Powers, called Senator Clinton a "monster" because she went to battle against her better--a man. (Powers left the Obama campaign post remark, but Obama brought her right back as an advisor post election.)
This liberal hate for women HAS GOT TO STOP! But ladies, it ain’t going anywhere if women don’t demand it. Sending flowers just ain’t gonna do it!
I leave you with this very fine line from Kevin Fagan’s excellent piece in the Chronicle:
Yes, it is all over our prime time TV, national liberal radio, print media and liberal blogs. Respect starts at home and women need to demand that NOW.
