Skip to comments.Anti-Feminazi FReep in Montana (Vanity with Offensive Content)
Posted on 10/25/2004 6:28:33 AM PDT by CholeraJoe
After an ill-fated, much delayed and re-routed trip back from DC via Houston (Thanks again, BamaDi), I finally dragged my weary FReeper butt aboard a small commuter jet headed from Salt Lake to Helena, MT. The seats are so small and close together that I could not avoid seeing the magazine the 20-something, attitude-ridden, blonde was reading in front of me.
I have no idea which women's magazine she was reading. It could have been Glamour or Cosmo but the content was so offensive, I had to complain to the Flight Attendant.
On one page headed by a large, red rose were two articles in column. On the left, in 28 point type, was one entitled, "Now I have my period. What can I do?" Below that in bolded paragraphs were suggestions I shudder to to imagine. On the right of the same page, in 40 point type was a headline reading, "Coming Off the Rag." (I was editor of my HS Newspaper, I know type sizes.) I looked away for quite a while but when I looked forward again, there was a photo of a scantily-clad couple in bed headed by, "What to do to him, before you do him."
At that point, I couldn't take it anymore and complained to the FA. He asked her to close her magazine and she turned around and said, "Hey a$$hole, what right do you have to complain about what I read?" I politely replied, "Ma'am, if were reading Playboy or Hustler on this airplane, wouldn't you be offended?"
She said, "Yeah, but those are MEN's magazines. This is a Women's Magazine. It's completely different."
After that, there was silence as the plane went on final approach and landed. I made no eye contact as we debarked and immediately went to the parking lot to retrieve my car prior to going to baggage claim. I pulled up to Baggage Claim right behind a white piece of Jap Crap with a Kerry sticker, from which the same blonde bimbo bounced and headed inside.
Now comes the good part. I pulled up within 4 inches of her back bumper so she couldn't access her trunk, turned the stereo up to 50*, got out and locked the doors. The CD playing was "Korn's Greatest Hits." Between not being able to access her trunk, the bass track from Korn and the rumbling of the V-8 from the GTO, with a Bush sticker, I'm certain that she was seriously inconvenienced. I could have cared less.
*Secret Garden: 50 is the Blaupunkt equivalent of "11." /Spinal Tap reference
Ping them all.
Rant on brother! (By the way, I think it was Cosmo)
Didn't think so. Thanks.
LOL - *Excellent* rant!
Thank ya, ma'am.
Ya gotta see this one.
Seriously - that is something I wouldn't want my 70-something mother exposed to. Women's magazine, indeed. Thank you for having the nerve to confront it.
I was pretty P.O'ed, bud. Thanks.
Off base?? No way!!!
Had my Bush/Cheney and NRA stickers on the pickup with my windows rolled down. I immediately hit the horn and yelled out Eat shit you socialist bastards!
The fat lady(Olver sign) looked like a Force V Delta-Dyke... had some queer-looking beret on. She looked ready to empty her bowels. The men(?) looked like they were bussed in from an alcohol detox facility. All chuckled nervously.
Southwick is the 'notch' that dips into CT... the 'glitch' in its otherwise straight southern border. My town is next to it... both my state Rep. and Sen. are Republican... believe it or not.
Ha! "Make Me Bad" Does it make me bad? Nah.
Impressive move parking so close to her back bumper...... I'd have been a bit more impressed had you just rammed her car so she couldn't recognize it, but we all have our limits.......... ;^)
You were not off base. Congrats for standing up for yourself. Now you had to know there was a kerry sticker on her car, I am surprised there were no Bush bashing messages as well.
What is the explanation for that "notch?"
Says volumes, doesn't it Doc?
