My point is that addressing complex needs of single parents or emotional problems faced by those going through a divorce is a better solution than crucifying the rare and heinous acts of a handful of extreme, horrifying crimes (man or woman).

Did the women on that show address complex needs? No. Because it's not what the mobs of people want. They want to talk about these issues and have an outlet to gain comfort/outrage or any other emotion for their own long held beliefs/issues.

That show wouldn't happen because abuse to women is common place. This IS a story because it RARELY happens.

The bs gender wars wouldn't start if you began to look at women as people instead of bitter pussies walking around with the sole intent of chopping your penis off.

Once again, What would happen if the gendor roles on the show were reversed? If you won't answer the question then say you won't.

I say bull. This is a story because the producers of the show thought it's outrageous and funny that a man got his penis chopped off and destroyed, and think its a hilarious justification for crossing a psycho woman.

Once again, they found an easy target for the entertainment industry to dehumanize.

I did answer the question. You don't like the answer.

Role reversal? You think if a woman got her breasts chopped off by her husband that Howard Stern wouldn't make some comment about getting "better" implants. Or Opie and Anthony wouldn't be all over it?
So as a woman, would it be acceptable for me to hold those three men responsible for all men and lump them in as all being the same, thinking the same and acting the same? The "patriarchy" if you will.
No. For the same reason those moronic women don't represent me and my beliefs.
But no, let's turn this in to something uglier than it already is.

I don't know. Did they?

I'm not holding anyone responsible for anything. I am asking the question: What would the response be if the gender roles were reversed the show. The answer to that question requires no more than 2 sentences at the most. You're making it harder than it has to be.

I take that as "I won't answer the question but will continue to talk around it". Thanks

If it was reversed, it would be treated the same way. Mocked by a select few idiots and crucified by the rest. The Julie Chen's and Howard Stern's of the world appeal to the lowest common denominator. Rational people look at this for what it is and don't use it as a punchline in jokes.

Both broadcasters you cite have been censured, fined, or fired for exactly the reasons being discussed.

The question is STILL quite simple ... do you believe this panel of women should be held to the same standard, as their male counterparts, who would be punished, or was the nature of their discussion 'acceptable'?

Kobo,

Did you ever watch the show 'Taxi' from the late 70's?

If you do, do you remember the episode where Reverend Jim (Christopher Lloyd) needed to get his taxi driver's license and accompanied by his fellow cabies to 'help' him to pass the writtent test?

He got stuck on the question 'What does the yellow light mean?' and his fellow cabies answered back 'slow down'. Reverend Jim repeated the question slowly 'whhhaaatt dooeess thhheee yeeellllow liiight meeaaan?' and the cabies once more gave him the answer 'slow down'.

Well it seems that when it comes to your question, Trenton is Reverend Jim

They have been censured and fined but not fired. You are talking Imus and that was racial.
YES, they should be fined/censured and/or fired! Do you think any of those morons will be? Hell, Chen is married to Moonves. That's what makes it even more disturbing. The "protection" if you will. Same as how Sirius protects Stern.

Thank you for answering. I disagree. They would be suspended and then fined.

There is no crucification in this case. In the reverse, Women's rights groups would use it as an example of men not taking violence against women seriously and so on. I'm still waiting on the follow up news story. I see a yahoo answers post, a reddit post, and a couple of other things. I'll search again tonight.

Didn't see that episode but this thread is just another example of how we communicate or better yet don't communicate at times.
