The Pin-up’s Guide to Timing Your Suicide

When 20-year-old Playboy centerfold Dorothy Stratten was raped, murdered, and mutilated by her estranged husband in 1980, she was adopted as a symbol of man’s inhumanity to woman by germinal third wave feminists (who would have cut her dead when she was alive).

Conveniently mute, impossible to libel, and as easy to configure as Barbies, deceased women—from Emily Davison to the Montreal Massacre’s 14 engineering students—make the best feminist icons

    It blows my mind that Bettie Page & Lena Dunham are the same species.

    • I don’t believe that.

        I don’t either, totally different body shape betty looks like a normal(hell yeah) woman, lena looks like one of the smoos from little abner

      I’m pretty sure Dunham falls into her own special category of … well to be honest I’m not sure how to classify her.

      I blame Betty for my inherent love of brunettes after I found photos of her in my Dad’s sock drawer when I was about ten.

    Isn’t it amazing though that in this so called “war on women” the only death of a “political nature” was that of Emily Davison who threw herself under the King’s horse during an Epsom Derby in 1913, with the cry “Vote for Women !”. Technically this was a suicide (She attempted to throw herself from a balcony some time before that). Now imagine that ! With all the fighting among men for political ends, all the assassinations and mass killings and trench warfare. And there is not a single death of a radical feminist by someone standing up for patriarchy. Not even Marc Lepine who actually made up a list of prominent feminists to blow away. He went to the Polytechnique instead and started to kill women at random – schizo that he was !. So, not a single foul-mouthed twisted sister was ever shot, decapitated, strangled or poisoned by a proud member of patriarchy. There were women who were killed for political reasons. Rosa Luxembourg because she was a communist. Mata Hari because she was a spy. Milada Horakova because she was an anti-communist. But no feminist – ever. What a f*cked-up business is this patriarchy ? Instead of keeping’em barefoot and pregnant, and killing them if they rebel, the stupid patriarchs let women into universities and over two hundred years, taught them everything they knew from nuclear science, to architecture, to engineering, to neurosurgery. For free. And the ingrates do what ? Make bitching a science and call it ‘Women Studies’. Stupid dickheads that we men are ! Serves us right !!

    Women will be the death of me…………..

  • Speaking of Luscious Lena, she’s trying to back away from the threatened lawsuit whilst simultaneously whining about how she’s the real victim.

      “I am sorry about all he has experienced”

      I love how the vileness of this person comes shining through even when she’s trying her very best to be sympatico. Hitler was only sorry after the tanks closed in on Berlin, she’s only sorry after she gets slapped with a threatened lawsuit.

    Sigh!. Bettie Page… I was born too young…but I can dream!!
