Most women I know or have been with do seem to like things inserted into their vagina during sex - fingers, tongues, vibrators, penises, fists, food, etc... Is it the over-generalization that is offensive? I don't really get it. :oops:
What bothered me was that the theory of why women like to have things inserted into their vaginas was coming from a man. A gay man, to boot, because I am assuming that as a gay man, he has even less interest than straight men in female sexuality and anatomy. Of course, I could be completely wrong about that. How on earth could he even begin to comprehend what it must feel like to have a clitoris, and what it must feel like to have something inserted into a vagina? He can't. Misogyny? I don't know. I personally don't think he intended for it to be that way, but other women do, and I respect that. Everybody's sensitivities are different.
The reaction that it is somehow different and more offensive to post a similar comment in the RR bothered me even more. As did the silencing of public discussion on the issue.
Looking back at what he is allowed to get away with, and what most have not been able to, it is painfully obvious how much is wrong with EM. He is allowed to shriek and throw his temper tantrums and create conflicts over and over again even when nobody said anything offensive against him (like vmichel's post to explain why women were offended). Holly has to call him a fucking idiot just once, and is immediately given a warning.
Scout said exactly what I was thinking. Life is too short.
