NEWS ALERT FOR SARAH PALIN : Men and Women both have a gluteus maximus.
It may be known by other names, but it is not unique to one gender. Whether it is called a hinder, the buttocks , a backside,back end, behind, bottom, bum, butt,derriere, fanny, haunches, hindquarters, posterior, rear, rump,seat, or simply ass, both men and women have them. Sarah Palin has confused a funny photo of Mitt Romney bending over, with sexism. What is funny about the photo is not that Romney is bending over, but the reaction of the young girl standing behind him. It reminds me of George Bush in his speech, where he didn’t look funny, but the boy standing behind him did.
It’s always about Sarah. When the Secret Service scandal erupted in Colombia, Palin played the victim card, bringing attention to David Cheney’s post of this picture, “checking her out.”
When Gabby Giffords was shot in the head and came within inches of her life, Palin claimed that Sarah Palin had been a victim of a Blood Libel. The 18 other people shot, and the families of the 6 who died, wondered how Sarah Palin had been victimized.
Palin has once again attacked the media. This time she is being critical of a photograph taken of Mitt Romney…bending over and a young girl reacting to him. Here is the photo:
This photo appeared in the “comedy” section of the Huffington Post, and the idea was that readers would send in funny captions for the picture. Talking about “ridiculous photos” and seeking “hilarious submissions” Huffington Post was never inappropriate with its comments about the picture. Yet Palin suggested that the media were “Jerks” for publishing this photo, and that is was “sexist.”
It seems Sarah Palin needs a lesson in “sexism.” Sexism is defined as:
“prejudice or discrimination based on sex; especially :discrimination against women.”
To laugh at this picture of Romney, fully clothed, with a young girl expressing excitement and shock as he bent over would have been equally funny if Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann was bending over. Funny captions of:
1. Mitt Romney’s Shocking Behind, would have been just as funny if they had said “Sarah Palin’s Shocking Behind.”
2. Sarah Palin might have been described as “Talking out of his (her) ass” as easily as Romney was.
3. “See beans are magical” could apply to Romney or Palin.
4. “Proving his claim that he(she) shits excellence.”is equally applicable to Sarah or Mitt.
5. “Take a whiff of that you 47 percenters” may only apply to Mitt Romney because he made the comment about 47% of people who don’t pay taxes, but it has nothing to do with the fact that he has, or is, a dick.
6. “And you shake it all around” is a commentary on the Hockey Pokey, which can be done by men or women.
When you call a man “limp” or “impotent” that is sexist. When you posed for these pictures, you yourself are acting in a way designed to inspire sexist thoughts and images.
There is a difference between humor and sexism. Palin is not humorous. Palin exploits her sex every chance she gets. From comments about push-up bras , to entering beauty pageants,
Sarah Palin has a long history of exploiting her feminism in an attempt to accomplish that which she could not through intellect. By bending over Mitt Romney was not exploiting his masculinity. He was simply caught in an embarrassing position on camera. Sarah Palin doesn’t have to bend over to be embarrassed when on camera.
