Tucker Carlson, as a manly man, knows that boys love being seduced by a hot teacher. But when it comes to what women want, poor Tucker doesn't have a clue!
Last Friday, in filling in for Hannity, Carlson hosted a discussion on the movie "Fifty Shades of Grey." His guests were Dr. Victoria Wilson, a clinical psychologist, and anti-choice virgin queen Lila Rose. (Guess Conservative Woman of America, Penny Nance wasn't available?)
One expected that Carlson would have taken the right wing moral high ground; but he began by asking Rose why, as she claims, the book is insulting to women when it was written by women for women. Lila claimed that the book promotes domestic abuse and somehow linked it to the problem of college rape. In agreeing with her, Carlson (who read the book) said he thought it was creepy." But he added that "women loved it."
Dr. Wilson asserted that the “normalized a very common female sexual fantasy: dominance and submission. And both men and women exhibit that fantasy all the time.” She noted that because the film takes away the guilt for having that fantasy, the film send a positive message "because it allows women to normalize their feelings."
Rose broke in with a whine about how women want to see "leadership" and "respect." Wilson disagreed. Tucker, oddly enough, seemed to take Wilson's point: "If adult women find this appealing, I don’t get it, and you clearly find that embarrassing, but can we say that they shouldn’t find it appealing? I mean, who knows what the heart wants."
Rose continued to whine about how women want to be "pursued," "admired," and "desired" and claimed that Hollywood is manipulating them. She veered back to the college rape non-sequitor: “I mean, the whole cry of the rapist is that women want it, the whole cry of Vanderbilt University or UVA is that, ‘Well, she wanted it. She had it coming.’ The whole narrative that’s being promoted is what we need to stand against."
Carlson continued to defend the "creepy" book. Rose got even more incoherent with a bizarre comment about "young girls are being targeted" by the movie and - wait for it - “Groups like Planned Parenthood are promoting BDSM and violent sexual practices to teenagers." Instead of saying that Rose's claim is absurd, Carlson said "ew." After Rose rambled about "protecting our girls," poor Tucker summed up his reaction to the issue: “I’m still confused as to what women want."
Poor Tucker. He just doesn't get what women want which is for him to just STFU!
Personally, I’m creeped out by the “pursuing, admiring, desiring” type. I’m not interested in being set on a pedastal like a pretty piece of jewelry, or set in a showroom like a sexy sports car. Maybe other women like that dynamic, and that’s fine too.
