I’m withholding judgment on Jacquielynn Floyd’s column in today’s Dallas Morning News about how she finds women kissing women to titillate straight men “pathetic.” After this recent post, I don’t want Floyd to think I’m picking on her. Besides, any criticism of the column should probably come from someone who’s in a better position to speak about the subject, as in a lesbian.
But I couldn’t resist sharing the above video, which appears to be the clip from the TV show “Shark” that Floyd is referring to, along with a few comments from the online poll that’s associated with the column. To view all the comments, go here. The poll question is phrased as, “Do women go too far to portray themselves as ‘hot’?” Thus far, 63 percent have said yes, while 35 percent have said no. Here’s one comment taking issue with Floyd followed by one backing her up:
“It’s pathetic. That’s what you’ve come up with: It’s pathetic. No, pathetic is taking the ground-breaking California ruling and using it as an entry point to broadcast your prudish ignorance about the youth of today. Maybe some girls kiss girls to titillate guys, but most do it because they’re curious or, god forbid, they like it. Come on down from the tower and see it for yourself.”
“After so many women fought so hard for so long to be taken seriously â€” to have it all trashed by a generation of insecure women who are so absurdly lazy that they let their breasts speak for them…what happened to basic human dignity and self-respect? And what’s so great about this kind of man that we need their attention?!”
