Tyra Banks: Please Shut Up

I know Tyra Banks really wants to become the next Oprah, but her “moral outrage” concerning women and body image has taken a new stupid low on one of her recent programs that dealt with teenagers in the sex business.

That was just one part, and clearly it was something everyone could be outraged about. An underage girl becoming a prostitute is a tragic story; perfect fodder for a talk show. Some of the other segments were a bit less sympathetic to Tyra’s self righteousness, such as this one.

I have no doubt that “Sasha Grey” has some issues she needs to deal with, but for Banks to act like she is some “feminist guardian” who stands up for “positive women role models” is laughable at best. This is a woman who STILL has a reality television program using teenagers as models. A show that pushes the same negative stereotypes on young girls; its contestants’ are young women who surely have issues with their own body images. Yet, she gets on her high horse about a women doing porn? I am sorry Tyra, you are no Oprah, and you don’t have the moral authority to condemn young women for going into a similar industry that you have profited from. If she had real balls, she would condemn the entire modeling industry, but that would require biting the hand that has feed her so well all these years.

So please Tyra: speak out against this ENTIRE industry, or shut the hell up.


You know what’s going to be in in 2007? Middle Eastern keffiyehs! In both pro and anti Israel varieties!

Since all the hip scenester/protestors in the West now wear them, it’s only a matter of time before the likes of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton adorn themselves in such a way.

Communism was soooo last century. If you want to be hip, you best get down with the Islamists.

Read all about it at Harry’s Place. Shazam!

Al-Husainy on Hannity

Sure, Sean Hannity is a hack, but this interview he had with Imam Husham Al-Husainy is pretty enlightening. The Imam does what he does best: scream a whole lot and act like an ass.

Unfortunately, the Democratic Party has gotten in bed with the guy because he is against the war in Iraq. That’s some great foresight there guys; yearning for your minority status already?
