We Stand with S.E. Cupp Against Larry Flynt In Spite of Her Anti-Women's Health, Anti Planned Parenthood Views

French Roast News

Anne is reading …

Larry Flynt’s Hustler magazine has published an image of conservative pundit S.E. Cupp with a Photoshopped penis in her mouth.

Writes the Daily Beast, Cupp says the protest isn’t loud enough; Flynt says the protest is too loud.

The headline on the Hustler piece poses the question, “What Would S.E. Cupp Look Like With a Dick in Her Mouth?” The magazine goes on to criticize Cupp, a conservative columnist for The New York Daily News and author of the book Why You’re Wrong About the Right, for her political views. “Her hotness is diminished,” the magazine says, “when she espouses dumb ideas like defunding Planned Parenthood.”

There’s no doubt that the piece demeans Cupp. Gloria Steinem, of the Women’s Media Center, is launching an online petition at change.org in protest of the piece, saying that Hustler “seeks to deny her participation in public dialogue entirely, in a way that crosses all boundaries of taste and conscience.”

Anne has signed that petition with comment.

We do not equate Larry Flynt’s influence as a Democratic spokesperson with Rush Limbaugh’s as a Republican. Like Gloria Steinem, NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund,  we condemn this overt sexualization of women.

We could see this turning into a play-by-play recalling the outrage that followed Rush Limbaugh’s attack on Sandra Fluke, with people constantly wondering whether the condemnation has reached or should reach the same level. Perhaps Fluke and Planned Parenthood will take the wind out of the sails of those who want this to be a story about hypocrisy in the media and instead it can remain one about condemning sexist treatment of women who express political opinions no matter if its coming from a radio host or a porn rag. Surely that’s something sane liberals and conservatives can agree on.
