Think NPR crossed with NATURAL BORN KILLERS, a spoonful of STRANGERS WITH CANDY, a little MST3K, a healthy dose of THE WIRE, and just a dash of THE FACTS OF LIFE for good measure. The boarding school version though, not that lame ass business venture fronted by Mrs. Garrett. That sucked.
…on an article about slut shaming and Rashida Jone’s recent Twitter comments saying he didn’t see the big deal about shaming, because guys are shamed “all the time” for it too.
Now, I’ve been around a bit in my 40 years. I’ve been inside locker rooms. I was a member of a frat. I’ve had friends of various ethnicities, religions, political stripes, morality, and sanity. I’ve participated in talks about sex since the first one with the boys in my neighborhood at 8 years old, until the last one my wife and I had last week. I’ve read web and blog posts, taken modern literature, women’s studies, and mass media courses once upon a time as an undergrad. I’ve had children of my own, and begun talking to them about sex.
And for the life of me, the next time I hear a man, a male shamed for being a “slut” it will be the first fucking time.
I guess true ignorance must be bliss. But it’s goddamned annoying for the rest of us.

I mean, it’s got to be legit. It’s from the director of Homeland Security.
The best part is- don’t reply to that FBI guy. He’s a dick, and we don’t like him over here at DHS
