Allen exposes underage sex scenes in Webb's novels

Reading that shit bothers me. I wonder if hedonism can defeat Islam. More likely it will also serve Islam backstage. Wonder where our sub-cultures aqre going to fit into all this?

That’s some weird stuff. but i think 'underage' is the wrong word for it... i think it's more like pedophilia, which is different from objectifying women and underage sex etc... but all these things can be found in those quotes.

and the fact that this guy wants to represent virginia is totally off the wall.

and this part:
"How can women trust him to represent their views in the Senate when chauvinistic attitudes and sexually exploitive references run throughout his fiction and non-fiction writings?"
any woman should know that to be accurately represented, it will have to be done by a WOMAN. you Americans are whack.

and i also like how the non-fiction isn't separate from the fiction in the quotes... unless i missed something. (i'm assuming they're all fiction?)

"If she’d just get laid every now and then she’d mellow out and stop being such a damn witch."
a have a few friends who have said this about select people (i.e. custom officers)

but what about freedom of the press? i'm sure things would be JUST FINE if this guy didn't go into politics. were these books flagged or noted on or discussed before this guy entered in the RAT RACE?

and to finish this off:
"...there are few if any strong, admirable women or positive female role models."

Ehhh. I'm not quite sure how to respond to this. While the quotes are disturbing, I'm hesitant to take them as a representation of the writer, without knowing more about proportions of his work that carry these themes. Just because a character in one of his stories says something doesn't mean he shares the same views.

It's not widely known, as I generally don't write any of it down, but I'm a "writer", as well, having several dozen stories (enough to fill quite a few books) in at least a dozen worlds/universes. With regard to female characters, I can think of at least one slut, and at least one strongly traditional female (servile housewife type) off the top of my head, yet neither of these are a description of what I either think about women in general, or find attractive (in fact, if you asked me which of my female characters is most my type, I'd probably say Mirada - a military tactical genius - or Karya - a military weaponry developer; and no, they're not from the same universe).

And lastly, on a half-related note, I made a blog post about apparent Japanese perspectives on sexuality yesterday.

Speaking under the assumption that he is as bad as those quotes make him sound (a view which I don't actually hold, but I am going to make an argument from that position), it makes a huge difference whether he's just some guy, or in politics. Think about it: would anyone have cared if Hitler had never had any actual power? Maybe there'd be a few hate crimes to his name, but nothing like what actually happened. So no, his life would have been pretty insignificant (probably nobody would have even known his name), instead of the classic example of evil he is.

Of course it could be argued that even as a senator the damage he can do is limited (in contrast to the extreme example of Hitler). Even still, him having grotesque views about women could indeed prevent him from doing his job. As a representative of the people, he must represent those people. If he holds views far deviant from voters, it would take an uncommon amount of self-control to vote according to the beliefs of the the voters, rather than his own (would YOU vote according to your voters, if you thought they were clueless nutjobs?).
