Hustler ran a picture in this month's print edition that depicted conservative writer and pundit S. E. Cupp with a penis photoshopped into her mouth. Their justification? She's a vocally anti-choice, anti-Planned Parenthood figure who happens to be a woman, ergo, she deserves some oral dicking. I may disagree with nearly everything that Cupp says, but holy shit is Hustler ever out of line here.
The text accompanying the picture reads,
S.E. Cupp is a lovely young lady who read too much Ayn Rand in high school and ended up joining the dark side. Cupp, an author and media commentator who often shows up on Fox News programs, is undeniably cute. But her hotness is diminished when she espouses dumb ideas like defunding Planned Parenthood. Perhaps the method pictured here is Ms. Cupp's suggestion for avoiding an unwanted pregnancy.
Ugh. No, no, no, no, no. No woman — liberal, conservative, communist, socialist, Castro sympathizing, whatever — deserves to have a penis photoshopped into her mouth as a means to humiliate or shame her. Cupp might possess views that publishers of Hustler find repugnant, but they're not nearly as offensive as the fact that more than 50 years after the women's movement began, we're still trying to silence women with dicks.
This sort of thing is not helpful. Stop it. Jesus. You're making me defend S. E. Cupp.
