Is This For Real?

Posted by ALmod on September 23, 2008

I always have trouble weeding out good satire:

I hope it really is satire.

    I think it’s got to be satire – from the forums, a post by “Paliban Mom” discussing the Wasilla rape kit payments:

    “As we all know, most women who get raped are the authors of their own trauma. They dress like harlots. They go out to bars unescorted and dance with strange men. They go on unchaperoned dates. They walk home alone at night.”

    Does this go beyond satire somehow? Not content with just pointing out the folly of others, it aims to provoke them to yet greater heights of it. We need a new name. Something French, with “provocateur” in it.

  2. I think it is satire….but I know some people who are frighteningly close to that mentality.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
