I was not planning on posting today, but something has really got my tits in a twist.
I was checking out some news sites, a few of my favourite blogs and a trashy magazine or two and plastered everywhere is this uproar about Sinead O’Connor referring to Kim Kardashian as a ‘cunt’ after she has appeared on the cover of the latest Rolling Stone.
Enter pissed off rant:
I’m not a fan of Sinead’s behaviour generally because all she seems to do is criticise women who don’t live up to her standards. She refuses to label herself a feminist but rants and raves about the injustice of inequality between men and women. Then comes out with things that are absolutely insulting to women.
I think back to her letter to Miley Cyrus regarding her Wrecking Ball video in which she says some really inappropriate things “You will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped”, “Please in future say no when you are asked to prostitute yourself. Your body is for you and your boyfriend.” And “When you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, ‘they’ [the music business] will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua,”.
I am aware that Kim K has no relevance to music – Unless you count that bad single she made once *cringe* and her marriage to that self-proclaimed ‘Greatest Rockstar of all time’ twat. But I have to argue that Rolling Stone hasn’t been exclusively about music for a long time. Examples:
There has been a lot of rage about the whole thing but I can’t help but wonder if everyone is so upset because Sinead O said something bad about Kim K or about the use of the word ‘cunt’? The American media seem to be appalled by the word. My question is, would those worried about ‘cunt’ have the same reaction if she said ‘dick’?
People, Sinead O’Connor included, need to reassess their values. Tell me what’s so bad about a cunt anyway? Half of humans have one and none of us would be here without them. The fact that Ms O’Connor uses the word as an insult just completely sucked away any respect I had left for her.
The only thing left to say is CUNT. Cunt. Cunt. Cunt. Cunt. Cunt.
They are beautiful. I have one. Your mother had one. Get over it!
