What's wrong with saying Ann Coulter dresses like a skank?
John Aravosis of AMERICAblog says:
"Ann Coulter, Miss Conservative, always dresses in public like she wants to get fucked, right then and there. As someone who makes her living off of launching personal attacks on others, it's fair game to ask why Coulter panders to her conservative fan base by dressing like such a skank? She appeals to them with sex, when I thought that was a big no-no on their side of the aisle. Not to mention, for someone so highly critical of others for being supposed intellectual fakes, you have to wonder about a chick who relies on T&A to sell her ideas."
Chiming in with insults would be so easy. Why on earth should I care what anyone says about Ann Coulter? She sure as hell would never stand up for me, a corn-fed, no make-up, natural fiber, no-bra needing, sandal-wearing, hirsute, somewhat fragrant hippie chick pie wagon.
I care because too many people take these underlying assumptions as truth:
- She has only her looks to sell.
Coulter sells the same thing Rush Limbaugh does. If he doesn't have to rely on his looks, why think that she must?
- A woman never wears certain styles just because they're fashionable or comfortable.
- A woman should never wear clothing that reveals her sexuality unless she wants sex.
- A woman wearing clothing that shows she wants sex can't complain when someone gives it to her.
- Specifically, women who wear leather, miniskirts, or high heels are skanks; they're sexually promiscuous--immoral, lewd, whorish--and panting for sex with anyone.
Do I need to explain how offensive these beliefs are? Women don't plan every single thing they do just for men, and a short skirt isn't an automatic invitation.
You know what's amazing? Those guys with half their cracks showing, their nipples poking out through holes in their T-shirts, and their bellies hanging out over their pants--no one ever thinks they're sexually promiscuous just because they show a little skin when they go out in public.
