  •  A boyfriend of mine in college (during the (8+ / 0-)

    Reagan era) compared his old, beater car to "me," and a much newer, nicer car we saw to "a really sexy girl."

    He was amazed when I stopped returning his calls. Cold. No explanation. If I'd been the "really sexy girl" whom he was "complimenting" by comparing her to a hot car, I now believe I would have shafted him, just the same.

    (Weren't the 1980s a delight? :)

    This garbage goes on all the time. It's a feature of the rape culture. It's abeted by the likes of Rush Limbaugh. Pixar should be ashamed. Let's call out misogynist portrayals in entertainment, wherever they crop up.

    Thanks for the diary.
