Sexist Comments of the Week: Race Dating Edition

Racists.
Last week, a brief history of racism among participants in the Washington Post Magazine Date Lab inspired some spirited defenses of racial preferences in the boudoir—and some polite rejections of the idea that one's blind date is merely acceptable "for an Asian guy." Let's take a look!:

Sexist Comments of the Week: Milk Enema Edition

Last week, pornographer John "Buttman" Stagliano was tried on obscenity charges in D.C.—but the government fucked up its case so bad that the trial was dismissed before 14 Washingtonian jurors got the chance to weigh in on Stagliano's work. Sexist readers, for one, aren't too fond of the government prosecuting their milk enemas and squirting:

Sexist Comments of the Week: Tits or GTFO Edition

This week, Courtney Stoker of From Austin to A&M and Joseph Hewitt of GearHead RPG graced us with their presence to discuss the problem of making dude-dominated subcultures more accessible to women. In the comments, you added your own tips:

Sexist Comments of the Week: “Aristophanes Can’t Touch Rand” Edition

This week, Sexist commenters dared to answer the greatest philosophical question of our time: Are Ayn Rand devotees morally and intellectually superior beings, or are they actually just people who spend their time whining in the comments sections of feminist blogs when they could be daring to stamp the world with their boldly phallic architectural [...]

Sexist Comments of the Week: Wedding Day “Health” Edition

Last week on the Sexist, we payed tribute to the wedding industry's focus on women's "health," as evidenced through its tireless "BIG DAY" diet promotions, its images of women squeezing into too-small white dresses, and its total obsession with brides, not grooms. Commenters weighed in (GET IT?):

Sexist Comments of the Week: Public Masturbation and the Shame Game

Last week, we discussed a public masturbator operating on Metro's Orange Line. Commenters disagreed on how victims ought to react to a public sexual assault—and why they sometimes feel ashamed.

Sexist Comments of the Week: Responsible Cleavage Edition

Watch where you're tilting those things
Last week, I wrote about how women with big boobs are perceived as inherently sluttier than those of us with minimal cleavage. In response, large-breasted women everywhere emerged to tell their stories. (I told you I was committed to blogging about boobs today.) Talk about your boobs in 3, 2, [...]

Sexist Comments of the Week: Male Studies Questions, Answered

Last week, feminism met "Male Studies"—it's like "Men's Studies," but with less of our gender-construction meddling, and more emphasis on the "male as male." After meeting Male Studies, feminists discussed Male Studies, and then we made fun of it a bit, and then a little bit more. And then, in the comments sections of these [...]

Sexist Comments of the Week: “Smile, Baby” Edition

Last week, in a discussion of how to not harass people on the street, a few commenters floated a possible harassment loophole: Isn't it okay to call out people on the street if you're just insisting that they turn that frown upside-down?
I have previously delicately explained why people on the street should refrain from [...]

Sexist Comments of the Week: Vagina Vagina Vagina Edition

[youtube:v=lpypeLL1dAs]
Last week on the Sexist, readers sounded off on the new Kotex ad that isn't allowed to utter the sound "vuh-jahy-nuh," we parsed the difference between the "vulva" and the "vagina," and one commenter received some Very Special terminology instruction on the meaning of "tampon." Let's do this point-counterpoint style, shall we?
