A glance through narrowed eyes at some recent headlines reveals that a class of subjects identified as “women” are widely reviled in the online media as messed-up, insatiable, dead, guilty, and of course, pregnant.
“Women are greater love cheats than men!” [DailyIndia.com]
The joyous fact of women’s’ natural slutty duplicity is distilled by this news outlet from a gazillion factoids collected by an enormous condom manufacturer survey. The survey also reveals to a breathless public that Coventry is the vibrator capitol of the UK and that the honky movie actor currently starring as James Bond is the “sexiest man alive.” Newindpress delights that 34% of women supposedly fantasize about “lesbian sex.”
“AN INFECTION THAT TURNS WOMEN INTO SEX KITTENS!” [sawf.org]
Humans infected with a certain parasite suffer brain damage resulting in personality changes. Male sufferers are merely “jealous and morose” but afllicted women “ooze sex” and become “more promiscuous” and “more attractive to men!” Hooray!
“More women drivers guilty of drink-driving” [BBC via Kwik-FitInsurance.com]
The statistic quoted in this article to substantiate the use of the adjective “more” to describe drunk-drivin women is this: of 109 drunk drivers caught, 99 were men. In other words, 90% of drunk drivers are men, which makes this headline a total lie. Which does not prevent Kwik-Fit from indulging in a patronizing finger-wag, reminding ditzy, infantile chick drivers that “women motorists who drink and drive may not only be endangering their women’s [!] car insurance, but also their livelihoods, as some will require a driving license as part of their employment.” Thanks for the news flash, Officer Friendly.

“Women are more likely than men to carry — and to pass on — mutant genes that cause long-QT syndrome, a defect in the heart’s electrical system linked to sudden death.” [my italics]. Where women and aberration are involved, allusions to dire mutuant reproductive ramifications are never far away.
“Women should not be punished for adultery” [IndiaTimes.com]
In India the debate rages on amongst official vagina monitors: should women who have “extra-marital affairs” be punished as criminals, or is adultery merely a civil “wrong”? There is no option, apparently, for women to just do it like fucking human beings without some sort of invasive juridical oversight.
“Military death count for women reaches 70″ [UPI]
“Some have argued that the women who have died are no different than the men,” said a report from the Center for Military Readiness, The Washington Times reported. “But deliberate exposure of women to combat violence in war is tantamount to acceptance of violence against women in general.” Bwaaaah! on so many levels.
“Pregnant women hope to delay births for German govt aid” [Reuters]
In order to cash in on a sa-weet government bucks-for-babies incentive that doesn’t kick in until January 1, the pressure is on to stay pregnant until the cut-off date. Women who manage to hold it in long enough present the fatherland with a 2007-vintage bundle of joy — the program is one of those desperate actions taken by governments when they’re afeared of population shrinkage, in which women are — what else is new — essentially paid to incubate new Germans — will reap 25,000 euros and the thanks/disdain of a grateful nation.
