Shrill CA Women Lawmakers Demand Academy Disavow Seth MacFarlane

Now that all of California’s pressing issues have been addressed, some nitwits from the state assembly have been freed up to address even more urgent concerns.

Geez, just imagine how they’d react if this guy was a conservative.

Entertainer/comedian/writer Seth MacFarlane earned a younger, bigger audience for hosting Sunday’s Oscar telecast — but he’s also sparked anger from the California Legislative Women’s Caucus, which formally complained Wednesday to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that his gig “struck a new low in its treatment of women.”

The legislative women’s letter to Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences bigwig Howard Koch complains: “In a world where women have historically faced challenges and obstacles when it comes to their portrayal in popular culture, Sunday evening was a setback for women fighting hard to gain appropriate respect as contributors in this industry and society in general.”

They’re trying to gain the appropriate respect by acting like humorless babies.

Their final word: “On Oscar night, when Hollywood seeks to honor its best, Seth MacFarlane’s monologue reduced our finest female actresses to caricatures and stereotypes, degrading women as a whole and the filmmaking industry itself. To degrade women is totally unacceptable in today’s world.”

Good grief, get over yourselves.

    Is this about the Boob Song? Good Grief. These woman pranced about naked from the waste up on the big screen, and they’re pissed somebody is talking about it? At least he didn’t sing about which female entertainers have given photographers the full crotch shot, sans panties, for free.

    While I firmly believe that fundamentalist Muslims want to destroy Western Civilization, their observation that our women are dogs and whores can not be countered with women representing popular culture*. We have women who are decent honorable people, but they aren’t around the Academy Awards.

    * I once told my students I wasn’t into popular culture, and they said “Oh, mister, we don’t call it popular culture. We call it pop culture.” I’m not into that either.

    Would these be the same women who participated in the naked demonstrations in San Francisco that were so well documented by Zombie? If anyone degraded American women that lot certainly did.

    Have these people not watched TV or movies for the past 40 years? The stuff to be viewed makes Seth’s jokes a Sunday sermon in comparison.

    I didn’t watch the Oscars, but I did google the boob song. The version I saw was edited to include shots of the actresses looking uncomfortable and embarassed. Yeah right, like that could happen. Once the check clears, so does their conscience.

    Both parties involved are the ENEMIES of America. The Propaganda arm of teh Democrat Party at War with Apparatchik… The only thing better will be when the rest of us are warring against both sides of that same coin.

    The enemy is within our Govt…

    Wow, there’s something you don’t see everyday. A bunch of busybody women sticking their nose in where it doesn’t belong.

    Offensive statements are ART in the post-modern world. Didn’t these gals get the memo?

    Rather than making fun of these women for being such “babies,” maybe we should use this opportunity to drive home the message that the left doesn’t really give a crap about them and their issues.

    You know… let them see with their own eyes which party is really fighting the war on women.

    That was what sparked my epiphany, back in the 1990s…

    I guess these weirdos don’t recognize that in order to get roles in movies, women go topless.
    They even win academy awards for it.
    It’s okay for them to do so but not okay for noticing. Would they complain about Magic Mike jokes?

    They paid these fools $47,000 to be there. Do you think they listened to the boob song or checked out their loot.

    If they really want to attack those who degrade & demean women and reduce women to positions of objects they should go after Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and mi’chelle robinson obama.
