Call It the ‘Post-DTF Stroll,’ Maybe?

Posted on | May 4, 2014 | 70 Comments

Feminism is, among other things, a totalitarian attempt to tell us what to think by controlling what we are allowed to say. For example, we cannot be permitted to disapprove of promiscuous women, and so the language of disapproval must be suppressed.

Which predictably brings us to the latest from Amanda Marcotte:

The “walk of shame” is a slang term that usually describes a person, usually a woman, who is making her way home from spending the night at someone else’s house for a sexual encounter.
The iconic image of a woman doing the walk of shame is disheveled hair and party-ready clothes that look sadly comical in the cold light of day. But it’s not her appearance that makes her trot home one of “shame.” No, as far as most people who use the phrase, her “shame” is that her appearance lets everyone know that she probably had sex, and for some reason, she is supposed to be ashamed of that.
“Walk of shame” is a phrase that’s widely understood to have originated on college campuses, since people who spent the night at a lover’s place often do have to walk on foot home to their own place, and usually in front of other people who recognize them and might recognize that their clubbing clothes don’t exactlymatch the casual wear that’s more common for mornings on campus. It’s expanded since then to encompass urban dwellers who often travel on foot or by public transportation and, in fact, has become so ubiquitous that you’ll often hear people who get to drive home say they were taking the walk of shame. (Drive of shame?)
But while the “walk” part of the phrase is understood flexibly, in many ways the “shame” part isn’t. . . .

You can read the whole absurdly censorious thing. Here we are, on the eve of sixth annual National Offend a Feminist Week, and Amanda Marcotte decides to give us a lecture on the need to remove “shame” from the dictionary insofar as it refers to sluts, tramps, hussies, floozies, man-traps, wenches, trollops and Women of Dubious Virtue?

Are we not to describe such women as “easy,” “cheap” or “loose”? Do the Enlightened Arbiters of Acceptable Discourse mean to banish from our lexicon every possible synonym for “promiscuous”? Can we no longer be allowed to remark that the dolled-up bimbo making goo-goo eyes at every man in the bar is hot to trot, on the prowl, looking for some quick action and down to fuck?

Well, it’s still more than four hours before midnight EDT, but I can wait no more: National Offend a Feminist Week begins early!

Take that, you dirty lowdown harlots!

    That’s the “shove of sobriety”.

    Good catch. Known as The Tall Man. I was in the death trade until my retirement a year or so ago. Most interesting job I’ve ever had.

    My first real car sex (beyond petting) was in my Volkswagen Beetle. It was like playing Twister. Luckily my partner was short. Looked a little like Hayden Pantierre now that I think about it.

    Heck, Mother’s Day is coming up first, so I have to think of two good presents in two weeks.

    I’m thinking something really romantic, like an electric hot water heater.

    “how DARE I suggest women should exhibit some self control?”
    I know standards change constantly but the Sandra Fluke story left me shaking my head.
    Just twenty years ago it was all date rape and men should have a checklist – ‘Do I have your permission to put my arm around your waist?’ Then Sandra turned up and I discovered that the femmes are so busy copulating that they can’t even work enough hours to buy condoms as well as groceries.
    Ladies! If you can’t afford a man, buy a vibrator!
