Here is a person I really hate: Romaine Patterson

Romaine is a talk show host on the soon-to-be-bankrupt Sirius/XM Radio. She is the spokebitch for the "Mangroomer", an expensive electric razor with a long handle, designed to remove all traces of pubic hair, because you know... adult men are "icky".

I called into her radio show last night on the OutQ station and got on the air. Romaine was complaining that seeing chest hair poking over the top of a man's t-shirt was disgusting. She was loud and shrill when I called in:

Me: "Hi, my name is Patrick and I'm a bear in San Jose, California."

(sound effect of a long fart)

Me: "I think you as a lesbian selling a razor for men's back hair is like me selling a 'home clitorectomy kit' if I thought women's vaginas were disgusting."

Romaine: (long pause, then loud ranting) "... I think men have to be GROOMED... if I can see their hair, then it's wrong..."

Me: "But hair is a secondary sexual characteristic. I this it's no more appropriate for you to tell men how to look that it would be for me to tell lesbians to shave their legs or armpits. I treasure the diesel dykes and other women in my life and I wouldn't think of telling them how to dress."

Romaine: "It's like guys talking about dresses at the Academy Awards. I shave my snatch. And I know I'll get shit from the lesbians out there, but I don't shave my legs..."

(Then, after saying my two sentences, my time was up, and they went on to the next caller)

But what I *wanted* to say is that Romaine is the classic man-hating lesbian, only accepting men if they are hairless pre-pubescent boys. When approached by a bear or hairy biker, her first instinct is to castrate them. She likes her gay men to be funny pink clowns like her co-host Derek, perfumed and fat, without a whiff of masculinity or power. Her prejudice will make many young gay men hate themselves when they start to sprout chest hair.

Take a look at the photo. Romaine is an ugly fat slag. She is an ignorant fuckhead, completely hypocritical in her misandry (the anti-male version of misogyny... I had to look it up), and spreading hate in order to make a buck. She sold shit once before, raping Matthew Shepard's corpse in order to write a badly-selling book about how she was actually the central focus of "The Laramie Project". She is an evil bitter person, completely poisonous to the gay community.

I like men and women of all sizes. (As Mika says, "Big girl, you are beautiful!") It's just her hypocracy and judgemental attitude that makes her ugly to me.

If she weighed 80 pounds I would have called her an ugly skinny skank. I'm just angry... note for example that I didn't call her a cunt. I think cunts are wonderful things

A) Okay, so you're defending yourself against fatphobia. It still reeks of misogyny.


B) "I didn't call her a cunt. I think cunts are wonderful things"

So since you called her fat, you think being fat is a bad thing? Or skinny? Or, basically, you are allowed to objectively judge someone's body and use it as a way to detract from someone's personality and politics? I thought this whole post was about body diversity.

If her hypocrisy and judgmental attitudes make her ugly to you, say that. Otherwise, you sound like any other sexist asshole making nasty comments about women as they walk down the street.

She who lives by lookism dies by lookism. If she is going to publicly judge the appearance of others, then her own looks are fair game. If she was making fun of race or intelligence, I wouldn't go there. And if she was a man, I'd make the exact same attacks.
