Censorship

Why Do Liberals Hate Pussy?

|

Commenter Pope Jimbo points us to a censorship* controversy at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Director** of social media Kurt Greenbaum recently ran a Friday thumbsucker asking commenters to name the "strangest things" they had ever eaten. Greenbaum's narrative:

Then, while I was in our 10 a.m. news meeting, someone posted in reply a single word, a vulgar expression for a part of a woman's anatomy. It was there only a minute before a colleague deleted it.

A few minutes later, the same guy posted the same single-word comment again.

More useless twaddle from the mainstream media.

Through the power of advanced internet technologies, Greenbaum discovered the commenter's IP address and sent it to the commenter's employer, a local school. Greenbaum again: "Using the time-frame of the comments, our website location and the IP addresses in the WordPress e-mail, [the school's IT person] tracked it back to a specific computer. The headmaster confronted the employee, who resigned on the spot."

The most serious charge lodged in the Post-Dispatch's comment thread is HalJordan's claim that Greenbaum violated the paper's own privacy policy. I don't think that's supported by the text of the policy. The PD specifies that personally identifiable information will not be "shared with [the paper's business] partners," but the paper makes no promises and provides itself essentially unlimited exceptions with regard to sharing such information with outsiders:

We will not share individual user information with third parties unless the user has specifically approved the release of that information. In some cases, however, we may provide information to legal officials as described in "Compliance with Legal Process" below…

Compliance with Legal Process
We may disclose personal information if we or one of our affiliated companies is required by law to disclose personal information, or if we believe in good faith that such action is necessary to comply with a law or some legal process, to protect or defend our rights and property, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our web sites or to protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public.

(My emphasis)

But as many commenters point out, Greenbaum's self-congratulations reveal the real bias in our testiculacentric media. While the female anatomy remains under lock and key, any male sack is good enough to dangle in the faces of people who oppose socialized medicine. Says dr-debunk:

–Nice speech coming from someone who has used "tea-bagger" in anger and despair talking about those you disagree with…

–You, other liberals, and "elite" media members and even Bill Clinton have used and continue to SERIOUSLY use the much more vulgar word. One which could be called "hate-speech", since it is used in a derogatory manner trying to demean conservatives.

Asks the always prepared Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum:

Kurt, can you explain why some vulgarities are removed and others are not? How is it that you and other editors/moderators permit the vulgar expression "Teabagging" to be posted endlessly? If you dont want to post the answer would you send it to me at nomoonbats-svppb@yahoo.com?

Fun Gus adds:

Dr. De-bunk has made an excellent point Kurt. YOU at the PD have chuckled as you use (and print) the word "tea-baggers" to describe conservative activists voicing their opinions. You and all your sophomoric liberal chums at the PD know exactly what that word means yet you still print it. Why don't you explain to some of your older readers (that maybe aren't as hip as the majority of your dwindling readers) in graphic detail exactly what a tea-bagger is.

And many others along those lines.

I'd just like to point out to Greenbaum that clitoral stimulation is still considered so novel and shocking that there are UN-member nations where it is officially illegal for a woman's sex partner to go downstairs. Anti-bilingualism is bad enough; we don't need anti-cunnilingualism on top of that. And in this era of extreme dining, you can't even be sure this person wasn't talking about a meal at an unlicensed Chinese restaurant.

So quit your showboating, you big dick.

Long before Eve Ensler organized the first V Day event; before America's favorite woman columnist predicted that we would soon be "awash in vaginaism" and become "vaginas on the plain seeking out other vaginas" (Where do I sign up?); while the Decade of the Penis was still fully engorged; Nick Gillespie proved by Napierian logarithm how the hole in 21st Century culture would be filled:

If the Year of the Woman helped beget the Decade of the Penis, then it's an even-money bet that the Decade of the Penis may well usher in a Century of Vagina. And sure, while there have always been occasional Muffys from Family Affair available for public consumption and there were four years of an actual Bush administration, the next 100 years may well show more pussy than the average issue of Cat Fancy.

* Censorship is used here in a generic sense and does not imply the use of force by a government.

Update: It's 1998 all over again. The site kurtgreenbaumisapussy.com reveals that Greenbaum is getting hit by a Web 1.0-worthy flame attack.

  1. Are we sure Greenbaum’s not Lonewacko?

  2. Looks like SOMEBODY’S got sand in his vagina!

    1. Your accusations are false. Either post a retraction and apology or I will be forced to initiate legal action against you. I have contacted the Reason staff asking ToughQuestions about your identifying information (i,e, IP address).

      1. I am LoNeWAcKo

  3. The P-D is a shit paper, period.

    1. Your vulgar slang for menstruation is not appreciated.

      1. Pussyist!

  4. At the time I write this comment, this H&R post has no by-line. Is somebody too pussy to put his or her name on it?

    While we’re on the subject, does anyone here have a problem with my calling my mother a cunt?

    1. Good lord, you saw the prose ? who else could it be?

  5. Is “pussy” really considered vulgar? If some woman is unfortunate enough to bang him, I wonder what sexy, clinical terms he uses to talk dirty.

    1. Is “pussy” really considered vulgar?

      “Pussy” is a euphemism that came into wide use because “vagina” or “cunt” were considered vulgar.

      -jcr

    2. It seems to be the least offensive word one can use when tentatively gauging one’s sexual partner’s tolerance for dirty talk during sex.

      Cunt and slit and fuck are the escalations if pussy goes over well.

    3. Have you ever seen the British Comedy “Are You Being Served”?

    4. Have you ever seen the British Comedy “Are You Being Served”?

  6. STEVE SMITH ATE WHOLE PUSSY ONCE! AFTER RAPING IT! GOT HAIR IN TEETH! WHY CATS SO CHEWY?

    WHAT YOU MEAN THAT NOT WHAT YOU TALKING ABOUT? STEVE NOT UNDERSTAND CONCEPT OF GENDER! WILL RAPE ANYTHING!

    1. YFCLO good sir.

  7. The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina.

    Yes, they don’t like hearing it and find it difficult to say whereas without batting an eye a man will refer to his dick or his rod or his Johnson.

    1. Or the purple headed pirate.

      1. Don’t be fatuous, Jeffrey.

    2. Actually, just saying “penis” or “vagina” doesn’t bother me that much; they’re just kind of cold and clinical terms and therefore don’t fit very well into a romantic conversation. You mostly only hear them used in sex education classes and at the doctor’s office.

      As for vulgar slang, what’s wrong with it is that it tends to suggest sex is something dirty or disgusting, which it ought not to be when done right. A “cock” and a “pussy” ought to refer exclusively to a rooster and a cat, respectively; naming genitals after these animals makes sexual stuff sound like copulation. Also, calling a guy a “pussy” is rather insulting and therefore using it to describe a gal’s genitals seems kind of insulting too.

      Now using terms like “dick” and “beaver” to refer to the genitals doesn’t seem so bad, but I’ve always seen them as kind of humorous, which is all right if you’re being playful but is easy to overdo. “Johnson” and “pecker” and “tallywhacker” are also vaguely humorous ways to refer to the man’s parts, whereas with the woman’s parts, “booty” is pretty much the only other term I’ve ever heard used that way.

      For more serious romantic conversation, terms like “rod” or “manhood” are good for telling a guy you admire his sexual prowess, and various terms related to wealth and fertility are good for telling the girl you like what she’s got: her “jewel” or her “treasure” or her “rosebud” or her “honeycomb” or the like.

      Even using serious terms, though, it’s best not to get carried away with talking about sexual parts. If the subject does come up, I prefer just to say “We’ve got what counts, honey,” and let it go at that.

      1. Buttercup is nice. It’s a flower and it’s 100% muslim approved. Found in the 1001 Nights.

        Hair pie is kinda unpopular now so no ‘beaver’ is safe on a ‘Brazilian airstrip’. It would be roadkill.

        1. Chris Rock’s Girlfriend: “I feel your PENIS! In my VAGINA!”

          Chris Rock: “Ugh… Don’t say that, baby. Please.”

      2. I don’t remember that monologue being in the Big Lewbowski…

      3. That was pretty creepy in a prudish, life hating sort of way.

      4. How quaint.

      5. What alan said.

    3. Oh, like Magic Johnson…

  8. If Greenbaum ever accidently catches an episode of Are You Being Served on PBS, he’s gonna collapse and become a slobbering, shitting, eye-twitching sack of douche.

    1. Angry man:
      WHADDAYOU WANT?

      Man:
      Well, Well, I was told outside that…

      Angry man:
      DON’T GIVE ME THAT, YOU SNOTTY-FACED HEAP OF PARROT DROPPINGS!

      Man:
      What?

      Angry man:
      SHUT YOUR FESTERING GOB, YOU TIT! YOUR TYPE MAKES ME PUKE! YOU VACUOUS TOFFEE-NOSED MALODOROUS PERVERT!

      Man:
      Yes, but I came here for an argument!!

      Angry man:
      OH! Oh! I’m sorry! This is abuse!

  9. Haha this is a really odd post.

    1. Yeah Bro Im thinking that also cheers

  10. I thought they were talking about the new Rammstein video.

  11. Is anyone else getting a “What is your favorite menu item?” Carl’s Jr. ad on the sidebar?

    1. Which is funny, since my response to the question “what’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten” would be Carls Jr.

  12. I was wondering who wrote this article, and thought of a couple people, but there’s no by-line.

  13. The STL Post Disgrace is an atrocity. Pulitzer has been spinning in his grave for quite some time now over what has become of his work.

    1. I picked one up a few months ago and was shocked at how little actual content was in it. It’s all ads, fliers and fluff.

      1. I get if for free along with the NYT. I have to force myself to pick one of each up and read it once a week. It’s my concerted effort to get the other view. That and I can’t pass up a Kruginator chuckle over coffee once a week. It’s a guilty pleasure.

    2. Damned right I’m disgusted! I started the Spanish-American war. What have those lame-ass cubs at the St. Louis post ever accomplished? Have they even incited a riot in the last fifty years?

  14. It does seem like the vagina is treated as more taboo than the penis. At the same time, this might add to the mystique of the vagina.

    1. Oh, there’s plenty already. Case in point: Bob & Tom’s “Camel Toe” song.

      Of course, they do dick jokes too, as with “Enormous Penis” by Da Vinci’s Notebook.

    2. Fleshy appendage vs. dank moist hole.

      One man enter, no man leave.

      1. Can’t we just get beyond Thunderdome?

    3. At the same time, Hollywood will show full frontal female nudity but not male.

      1. That makes sense in a way. Female nudity (tastefully done) doesn’t really show the genitals since they are pretty much internal or safely tucked between the legs. With males, it’s all out there to see.

    4. Thank God I come from a warped profession that requires of me to ask women such questions as, “Have you noticed any smelly discharge from your vagina lately?”

  15. Why isn’t this guy’s work email posted as part of this story as a contact?

    1. kgreenbaum@post-dispatch.com

      Enjoy, the dispatch needs a good culling.

      1. Dear Mr Greenbaum,

        If you are ever feeling suicidal, you can reach me by contacting my employer and I’ll be more than willing to give you a helpful hand.

        Your pal,
        Al

  16. The comments in HuffPo about this are scary. Way too many people approving of this nonsense.

    1. There’s a “Won’t someone please think of the children?” angle to the story; people will approve.

      Over at Photography is not a Crime, we have this gem related to the story:

      I don’t want my child around grown men who think joking about female genitalia is funny. Teachers need to be mature about these topics. What if he turns out to be a child molester?

      1. First thing I thought of when I read that is I hope daddy was just some guy that donated. Otherwise you might need a divorce.

      2. Holy shit. Joking about vaginas = Child molester. That is industrial strength crazy.

        It would be nice to this asshole watch a Sarah Silverman special. I’m sure the head explosion would be massive.

        1. Argh. “To see this asshole…”

    2. Meanwhile,

      back in clitoral-mutilation territory…

      Get your priorities straight you HuffPost cunts.

      1. There is more sand in HuffPo’s collective vaginas than in the whole of the Sahara.

        1. During my brief instigation jihad at the Ed Schultz message boards, I called GW a cocksucker – and was given a lecture by a liberal as to how this was wrong.

          Yeah, I’m still puzzled.

  17. Well, there’s a lawsuit just waiting to happen.

  18. @ Art-P.O.G. I think the abundance of penis jokes have made it less of a taboo to talk about it. Perhaps more joking is needed about vaginas then?

    1. Oh, there’s plenty already. Case in point: Bob & Tom’s “Camel Toe” song.

      Of course, they do dick jokes too, as with “Enormous Penis” by Da Vinci’s Notebook.

    2. Oh, there’s plenty already. Case in point: Bob & Tom’s “Camel Toe” song.

      Of course, they do dick jokes too, as with “Enormous Penis” by Da Vinci’s Notebook.

  19. Well, there’s at least one liberal who likes pussy = and doesn’t like Greenbaum.

    1. Le ouch, that is pure internets ownage on a /b/ level.

      I totally missed this. I guess not reading that shitty paper might have something to do with it.

      1. The best part is the moron has his resume up for public viewing, with his home phone, and home address. Jesus Christ that is 15 different kinds of stupid. This guy’s position within PD speaks volumes for what a shitty paper it is.

  20. What’s sad is that the comment was in response to the strangest thing someone had eaten. Is vagina licking considered odd in Missouri, or are both the poster and Greenbaum just not getting any?

    1. Exactly. What would have been passed over on this website as lame humor turns into scandal elsewhere.

    2. After a short phone poll of local Saint Louisians and outlying areas I concluded that licking vagina is not uncommon. Licking pussy is also not uncommon as long as it is not the feline version, then it just gets weird.

      I won’t report on the goat and sheep numbers, they are a little embarrassing by association.

      1. I ate a live cat once when I was trippin’.

  21. BTW, I ate part of a Golden-headed Quetzal once. It tasted like liver.

  22. This is why we will never have a President named Felch.

    1. No, but we had a two presidents named Bush which means unshaven pussy.

      1. Is Bush Light a blond chick with an unshaven pussy?

        1. Now that you point it out, it is ironic that both Bushes were beardless and hardly clams like Coolidge was.

  23. So, since no one has asked it yet.

    What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever eaten? And did you like it?

    1. It’s not pussy.

      It’s that nasty Uzbek rotten goat milk with chives and pepper corn drink. Oh god that stuff is nasty.

      I forgot the name.

    2. i don’t eat crazy stuff. but i do enjoy beef tripe and tongue. and that’s probably only odd in the US…

    3. Dog – Yes.
      Balut – No.

    4. A 400 pound woman with a yeast infection who just got off the elliptic machine.

      Did I like it? Guess.

    5. Muktuk. Like pussy, it tasted quite fishy.

      1. I’ve never once eaten fish that tasted like pussy. Am I eating the wrong kind of fish? If so, why would I want to eat the right kind of fish?

  24. Greenbaum – obviously self-loathing.

  25. Still don’t get why they think “teabagger” is an insult.

    1. If anything, “tea-baggee” would be the insult.

      I AM THE GORILLA MASKER

      1. Barney Frank would NOT be insulted.

        1. But he may be turned on.

      2. Only if was done against their will with the intent to humiliate. I assume their are people out there who like to be bagged.

      3. There are two types of people in the world:

        Teabaggers and teabaggees.

        1. Now gargle my testicles, faggot!

          1. That tends to be what I tell the ladies.

    2. “Would you kiss me? I like to be kissed when someone is DOING SEX TO ME!

      1. That will be in the top 5 all time SNL bits. For-evah.

  26. It’s interesting he used the term headmaster. Since the only schools that use that term around here are private. I wonder if he has kids that go to the school of the IP he recognized.

    There seems like there might be a deeper connection here. I don’t think a union teacher would resign. But a parochial teacher or private school teacher under contract might.

    1. You’re correct. Would O’Reilly or Beck allow this sort of humor on their website? Legitimate question. So is it only liberals that hate pussy?

    2. I guess I can see how a “headmaster” would disappprove of pussy eating – wrong menu.

  27. key words: headmaster, private, deeper connection

  28. I have no problem with slang terms for the various female parts; what I dislike is that they’re almost always insults.

    That’s why I was delighted to see, after Officer Kimberly Munley took down Hasan, the word “ovaricious” offered as the feminine equivalent to “ballsy”. We needed that word.

    1. Kimberly

      with all due respect though you do need an x-ray machine to truly determine if a gal has big ovaries.

      A guy just has to star in a porn film and even then they are mostly considered to be costars.

      1. And the AVN award for best supporting actors goes to…

    2. Hey now, “tight” is synonymous with “cool”!

  29. I actually know this douche from the Online News Association. He is a self-serious prig (if you couldn’t tell). Strange food? He’s the kind of guy who comes to NYC and eats at the olive garden. Pussy! I am posting this from home in case he wants to call my wife and get her to divorce me.

    1. Slappy keeps up the defense.
      http://www.igreenbaum.com/2009…..#more-1316

      1. fucking threaded comments

    2. Hey hey hey, bagging on the Olive Garden is totally uncalled for.

      1. There is a weird Olive Garden cult here in STL. It’s kind of sad.

      2. Dude, if you are in NYC and want italian, Olive Garden is NOT the place.

        1. Indeed. I’d go for Sbarro.

  30. Why Do Liberals Hate Pussy?

    Mm, ‘cuz liberals are just jealous assholes?

    I’m amazed this tard is allowed a cell phone.

    Image from here.
    http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/c…..d_goes_to/

  32. Holy shit. The Reddit crew is on his ass like stink on shit. You would think a guy in charge of social media and a companies internet presence would be locking down accounts like a mad man.

    I guess not.

    1. I think he’s more into social media like this.

  33. His Flickr.

    With a picture of two pussies. Poetic.

  34. Someone in this classroom thinks he’s a comedian. Someone thinks it’s funny to deface school property. Someone gets kicks out of drawing a mustache on a photo of the teacher — a man who spends hours every day trying to plan lessons just so that you young persons can learn and prepare yourselves for a world out there where defacing property isn’t funny; it’s a crime.

    So until that person comes forward and takes responsibility for his malfeasance, you’re all going to just stay in your seats. Not so funny anymore, is it? IS IT?

  35. Slappy keeps up the defense.

    Jeebus H. Christmas. Here are the three things he’s learned from this unfortunate epussode:

    1. He should have gotten buy-in from the entire newsroom.

    2. He shouldn’t have shown emotion.

    3. He and his colleagues need to come up with a more prescriptive policy for suppressing speech.

    When I say the MSM is now populated entirely by borg, people say I’m telling wild tales out of the Delta Quadrant. How can you read this guy and draw any other conclusion?

  36. Vagina.

      1. Sweet potato…

  37. This douche hasn’t even cleared his flickr which has pictures of his fucking kids on it. The comments have already started. Way to go dad.

    Jesus christ I am an internet tard and I would have a better response time than this moron.

    1. This douche hasn’t even cleared his flickr which has pictures of his fucking kids on it.

      His kids fuck?

      And he put pictures of that on the internet?

      Or are you saying that he was fucking children, and put pictures of that on the internet?

    ? Cardsfan4life

    One did get by the censors. My hat is off to Cardsfan4live

  40. I’m not sure I understand this post. Someone wrote pussy on a STL P-D chat board and an employee for the paper contacted his employee. So liberals hate the word pussy.

    When did “someone employed by the STL P-D (a paper I literally have never heard of until today) become “liberals?”

    Try saying “pussy” or any such word around any of the religious right fawning GOP meetings and see how much loved it is…

    1. The PD is notoriously liberal around these parts.

    2. I’m not sure I understand this post.

      Tell us something new MNG.

    3. I think Cavanaugh was trying to get an eye-opening title to his post. I doubt accuracy was the point of it.

      If anything, I’d say that conservatives would be more uptight about using the word “pussy” in public than liberals. But, given the profession involved, the default assumption should be journalist = liberal.

    4. C’mon… this guy is the freakin’ self-appotined “Social Media Guy” of St. Louis. I’m a pretty Geeky Guy, but I would never go so far as to make “Social Media” my life’s purpose. Only a liberal in need of a cause would feel the need to call himself that.

    5. I thought “Why Does __ Hate ___” was a sort of running gag around here.

  41. It would be insane though to think everyone who worked for the paper was liberal, and even nuttier to suppose any one employee of the paper represented “liberals” on any matter.

    1. It’s pretty bad. The one person I know in the paper industry here in STL says it’s bad and he’s a flaming liberal.

  42. This is either an epic social experiment (hoax) by the Post-Dispatch, or Kurt Greenbaum is epically ill-suited for his job.

    Yeah, the latter seems more likely.

  43. Let me be clear that contacting the guys employer seems to me to be stupidly petty beyond belief. A total jerk move imo.

    But I don’t think the guy represents anyone but himself. I’d bet even money the average self identified liberal is more cool with curse words than the average self-identified conservative.

    1. Why not? He’s acting in a capacity for the paper. In doing so he quite possible violated company policy and has caused a shit storm for his company.

      I’d can him for the shit storm alone.


    2. stupidly petty…

      watch your language! please!

      1. crap… incif for chrome please?

    3. I can only speak of the liberals at the L.A. Times, but my experience is that this is untrue. They are a remarkably priggish bunch. And I say that as somebody who thinks feminist priggishness is more legitimate than traditionalist priggishness and is tempted to rat out H&R commenters to their employers whenever a post about a woman provokes a wave of pretty objectionable sexist commentary (i.e., every time).

      The variances in treatment of “pussy” and “teabagging” is, I think, pretty compelling. If through some alternative sequence of events, the term “teabagging” had attached itself to supporters of health care reform, I have not one shred of doubt that Greenbaum would have avoided joining in the funmaking.

      And to be clear, I think the Tea Party folks should not only embrace the “teabagger” insult but come up with related slogans like, “Rub Your Face In the Balls of Freedom!”

      1. henever a post about a woman provokes a wave of pretty objectionable sexist commentary (i.e., every time).

        Tim, you fool, we’re not being sexist, we’re deconstructing sexism in order to offer a sophisticated critique of it. We are post-sexist artists. I’m filling out my NEA grant application as we speak..

        1. And I say that as somebody who thinks feminist priggishness is more legitimate than traditionalist priggishness and is tempted to rat out H&R commenters to their employers whenever a post about a woman provokes a wave of pretty objectionable sexist commentary (i.e., every time).

          Ah, the white knight syndrome! Nothing feminist loves more than guys who cast themselves in the roll of Protector of Womanly Virtue.

          1. But what they really love is a guy who can get there noun/verb agreements correct. So lonely, so lonely.

            1. and know the difference between a possessive word and pronoun for place.

      2. is tempted to rat out H&R commenters to their employers

        Who is Nick Gillespie’s boss?

      3. And I say that as somebody who…is tempted to rat out H&R commenters to their employers whenever a post about a woman provokes a wave of pretty objectionable sexist commentary (i.e., every time).

        In talking about some dingbat poster who thought that: man joking about cunniligus = child molester, I called her a (gender neutral) asshole, so there’s something to feel good about.

        But help us out, Tim. There need to be vulgarity guidelines. I had always assumed that if it was okay to call Dubya a dick or a jackass, it would be okay to call Pelosi a cunt or a bitch. To me, this seems like gender equality, since they are refering to either their respective genitals, or animals of the same sex. Then I was told that those were “wrong” words with regards to Pelosi (but not Bush, N.B.). So an obscenity guide would be rather helpful.

      4. ” as somebody who thinks feminist priggishness is more legitimate than traditionalist priggishness and is tempted to rat out H&R commenters to their employers whenever a post about a woman provokes a wave of pretty objectionable sexist commentary (i.e., every time).”

        Well that helps explain why you were so excited to vote for Obama. Are you ever going to challenge your own biases?

      5. Since anti-statists are the teabaggers, wouldn’t the more correct slogan be, “Rub Pelosi/Reid’s face in the balls of freedom”?

        That would be a t-shirt that would sell.

      6. How many times are men or fathers portrayed in media an entertainment as incompetent morons good for nothing but bringing home money?

        Ya, it goes both ways these days. Remove the historic reference, which has its place, and you have a pretty weak argument.

      7. To repeat my comment from above because I want it to get wide-spread play…

        There are two types of people in the world:

        Teabaggers and Teabaggees.

      8. “Rub Your Face In the Balls of Freedom!”

        T-shirt gold!

    4. I actually agree with MNG for once.

      Enjoying the kumbayah moment while it lasts. 🙂

  44. http://www.yaliberty.org/posts…..lp-him-out

    Judge Napolitano negotiating w/ Fox News to take the internet show “Freedom Watch” to live TV…

  45. The comment in question, allegedly:

    “I have eaten many different animals (or at least parts of them), including rattlesnake, crocodile, alligator, iguana, turtle, and many different molluscs, arthropods, echinoids, and whatnot from sea or river. I have also eaten squirrel, bear, dog, and cat. So, I can say I have eaten pussy, and you can interpret or misinterpret it any way you want. Oh, and woof-woof, too.”

    Jesus Christ, Tim was right.

    And in this era of extreme dining, you can’t even be sure this person wasn’t talking about a meal at an unlicensed Chinese restaurant.

    If that’s what the comment actually was, Greenbaum deserves to have his career ended.

  46. this whole comment thread really sucks.

    1. Your employer’s been contacted. Update your resume.

  47. If that’s the actually comment, he really was saying that he had eaten cat and vag, since he follows up it with a claim that he has eaten dog too.

    I mean isn’t that the obvious reading comprehension situation? He really meant that he had eaten both types?

    Boy that’s a tough thing to get fired over.

  48. Who cares what he said. Tracking down his IP and notifying his boss of the use of the word pussy in anonymity is fucking retarded. I don’t care if he said “donky fucker, nutter butter, balls, cock, cheese” the action of the PD employee was awful. The post backing this chuckle head up is worse.

  49. “Why do liberals hate Pussy?”

    That’s easy, he ratted on them to the feds.

  50. Any iPhone developers out there? There should be a tea-bagging app with this douche as the host.

  51. The RFT article and survey for this is kind of funny.

  52. I am reminded of the joke about Mario and Luigi, two tourists from Italy visiting in Manhattan. They came upon a pushcart vendor whose sign read, “HOT DOGS”. Both were a bit taken aback, but they decided that the maxim, “When in Rome, do as the Romans” applied to New York, too, and each asked for a hot dog.

    After they received their sandwiches, Mario said to Luigi, “Hey! Wait a Minute! What-a part of the dog did-a you get?”

    1. Ha! Your nom de plume is hilarious!

  53. He got himself a public disservice announcement from a local.

  54. I’m seriously considering buying the “Kurt Greenbaum is a pussy” shirt and wearing it to a show next week. I live in StL.

  55. If, however, this is a hoax initiated by Greenbaum (something he had apparently blogged about), it’s A+ meta-trolling.

    I’m thinking it’s not a hoax, but there is the outside chance that he just owned the entire internet.

    1. Noone commits a hoax whose purpose is to get thousands of people to hate you.

    2. While A+ meta-trolling is possible, it is usually not the case. Never attribute to trolling that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

      I shall call this “Episiarch’s Law”.

      1. Damn. That’s excellent.

      2. That explains Lonewacko and Donderoooooooooo.

      3. You need to collect these laws and bind them. Or at least post them somewhere.

  56. “We’ve already talked about how and when to escalate our response to bad language.

    My colleagues and I agree we are committed to working as hard as we can to foster and encourage discussion on STLtoday. That means taking a measured approach to consider any and all steps ? within our policies ? to put a stop to it or eliminate it when we see it.”
    If informing someones employer after they post the word “pussy” twice, is his idea of a “measured” response I would hate to think what the next level of response would be.

    1. “If informing someones employer after they post the word “pussy” twice, is his idea of a “measured” response I would hate to think what the next level of response would be.”

      Well they didn’t buy all those WMDs from Saddam just to sit on them…

    2. Call for fire.

  57. And I say that as somebody who thinks feminist priggishness is more legitimate than traditionalist priggishness and is tempted to rat out H&R commenters to their employers whenever a post about a woman provokes a wave of pretty objectionable sexist commentary (i.e., every time).

    Actually, I know where TC is coming from on this one. But considering that ASCII penis is one of the biggest offenders, I chalk most of the ‘sexism’ in these hallowed comment sections up to meta-immaturity.

    1. I chalk most of the ‘sexism’ in these hallowed comment sections up to meta-immaturity.

      Finally, somebody that gets me!

  58. You’re correct. Would O’Reilly or Beck allow this sort of humor on their website? Legitimate question. So is it only liberals that hate pussy?

    I read the title thusly: While prudishness and general freaking out about pudenda references is expected from Conservatives, the appropriate response to such behavior from Liberals is to point at ’em and laugh.

  59. Of course, I should have made that last post as a response to MNG’s 11-22 8:09 PM post.

  60. Quality rage, TC. Would read again.

    PS: Kurt Greenbaum is a pussy.

  61. I just checked out his Linkedin Profile. Guess what he’s proud of:

    Social Media Director; Asst. Metro/Business Editor
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    Public Company; LEE; Newspapers industry

    October 2007 ? Present (2 years 2 months)

    Developed and implemented initiatives to insert the Post-Dispatch in the midst of the social media phenomenon: Started MySTLtoday social networking site; coached and mentored dozens of bloggers to increase traffic; successfully pioneer newsroom’s use of Twitter for news; launched successful story commenting; and more. Edit and supervise metro/business reporters.

    1. He certainly “insert[ed] the Post-Dispatch in the midst of the social media phenomenon” although I don’t know if I’d keep “launched successful story commenting” on there.

  62. I know YouTube hates pussy. I have an official reprimand in my Permanent File for including this harmless spoof in a video:

    http://216.77.188.54/coDataIma……l.-09.jpg

  63. I don’t get how the use of tea bagger in the paper is relevant to banning the use of pussy in a context that suggests it’s being used as a synonym for vagina. Unless the paper also bans pussy when the usage clearly indicates the word denotes cat, there’s not really a discrepancy between using teabagger when describing a certain type of anti-Obama political activist while sanctioning the use of pussy in place of cunt.

    For all that, Greenbaum’s behavior is despicable.

  65. You guys are missing the big picture! Somebody finally figured out how to get teachers fired!

    1. Must have been a private school.

  66. There are many reason why liberals hate pussy. One being they are the biggest pussies on earth and second, have you noticed Liberal women? I’d rather pound a rock or slam it in a door.

    1. Ummm, virtually every woman in the Miss America contest is a liberal. That’s why there was such a furor when one of them said something totally un-PC.

      Lots of good looking liberal women, dude.

  67. Liberals can, and do, engage in prudish, bluenose behavior:

  68. Why do liberals hate pussy?

    Because Nick Gillespie is one nasty twat.

  69. […] Why Do Liberals Hate Guns Pussy? […]

  70. I swear, some people are such hoo-hoodillies.

  71. truth,,,,obama people have no idea of the extent to which they have to be gulled in order to be led.”
    “The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one.”
    “All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those towards whom it is directed will understand it. Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda must be lower the larger the number of people who are to be influenced by it.”
    “Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.”pelosi don’t see much future for the Americans … it’s a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities …obama feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance … everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it’s half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold TOGTHER.They include the angry left wing bloggers who spread vicious lies and half-truths about their political adversaries… Those lies are then repeated by the duplicitous left wing media outlets who “discuss” the nonsense on air as if it has merit? The media’s justification is apparently “because it’s out there”, truth be damned. STOP THIS COMMUNIST OBAMA ,GOD HELP US ALL .THE COMMANDER ((GOD OPEN YOUR EYES)) stop the communist obama & pelosi.((open you eyes)) ,the commander

  72. Lots of good looking liberal women, dude.

  73. Hahahaha great post title

  74. That hits liberals to a “T”

  75. We all hate it … Why? It’s so far away… hahaha
    I like it 😀

  76. With many new announcement about the wizard of oz movies in the news, you might want to consider starting to obtain Wizard of Oz book series either as collectible or investment at RareOzBooks.com.

  77. Thanks for this post. Who knows why the liberals hate pussy!
