Why we men just hate Sex & The City
Daily Mail ^ | May 13, 2010 | James Delingpole

Posted on 05/13/2010 6:03:34 AM PDT by C19fan

I'd love to be able to tell you in precise detail what it is that I so thoroughly loathe about Sex And The City.

But to do that, I'd have to sit down and watch it - and frankly I'd rather be dipped in honey, dangled upside-down from a tree and eaten alive by fire ants.

Thank you. The show was made by gay men for gay men.

For me, it's that Sarah Jessica Parker. She looks like a foot.



Every time I see her, it makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

speak for yourself, it’s a fairy tale for grown ups
pretty witty, and good props and scenery too

some of us like mindless entertainment that ridicules the fantasy life of single urban women

But I’ll wait for the DVD and eat popcorn and chocolate at home!

It’s simple.

These women have issues.
Men don’t have issues.
Men don’t like issues.
Men don’t like to discuss issues.
Men don’t like to watch women discuss their issues.
Men don’t like to date women with issues.

However, if necessary, men will have shallow, meaningless sex with women with issues, but this is hardly a worthwhile premise for a tv series or motion picture.

Truth be told.

My nephew runs a movie theater in Cleveland. A group booked a theater for a private showing of the first movie.

Guess who booked it?

Why do I hate it? It’s four heterosexual women behaving like gay men. And nobody ever gets VD!

Are you certain? Old horse face certainly looks the part of a tranny and always has. "She" has the most improbable film and television career ever. She's thought of as "sexy," but by whom exactly?

It’s got nothing on Desperate Housewives.
By the way, it’s true that it was developed by Gay guys and they changed the characters to women.

I’m a girl. I can’t stand Sex & The City. The nicest thing I can say about the characters and their choices is that they were pathetic.

THIS woman hates it too.

I would NEVER watch anything so patently ridiculous and derogatory to women.

To be perfectly fair, I NEVER watch ANYTHING with the word ‘SEX’ in the title.

The manic and inordinate obsession with SEX is something MOST rational people leave behind with adolescence. The MSM and Hollywood insist on keeping news/entertainment for Americans at a puerile and adolescent level. So, irreverence and indecency are the fashion.

That also helps in their overarching plan to render Americans malleable and docile.

Someday, Hollywood and the MSM will discover the truly overpowering appeal, wordless dignity and grace which all refined and demure women possess…at any age and with or without the ‘8x10 glossy’ kind of looks.

If a beautiful woman is so forward and unrefined that she shows herself, by her behavior and appearance, easily available and accessible, then HOW alluring is a beautiful woman whose attention and favor require effort??

This is so old fashioned of me, but I think there is nothing in the world so repulsive as an unrefined women who is incapable of conducting herself properly in public.

When I was in Las Vegas recently, the casinos actually had slot machines based on this insipid show. Now that is just wrong.

The casinos also had slots based on other TV shows like Sopranos, Happy Days, etc. Wouldn't be caught dead playing any of them and I'm sure they are rigged by the casinos for a low payout because anybody stupid enough to use them needs to be separated from their money fast.

Don’t you dare compare those two! Big Red was as handsome as they come. A regal King. SJP wouldn’t have been qualified to clean his stall!

And yeah, I’m a female who would rather have bamboo shoots stuck under my fingernails than watch the tv show or movies.

The line about that show is “So NOW I know what women talk like when they’re alone! They talk like gay comedy writers.”

How sweet and coquettish she is!
Pity of it is, that’s James Marsden singing. He is much prettier than she is. They are trying to market this to women by showing SJP trying to be a 20-year-old ballerina. If they had just let the man sing, even I would have bought a bottle.

OMG I can't stand that show. Sarah Jessica Parker should win some award for being the absolute ugliest female EVER in movies or TV. I accidentally clicked onto that show years ago on HBO - ONCE. They sounded like a bunch of men in a football locker room. No group of women I have ever known talks like that. You can tell the scripts are written by males.

No straight woman in her right mind would act like these tarts.

The gay guys don’t care if straight women watch the show.

SJP is considered “sexy” by gay men, who would think that way if they liked women.

“This is so old fashioned of me...”

Actually, it is not “old-fashioned” at all. It’s WISE. Many of today’s young women are discovering the beauty and wisdom of chastity.

Well gay males. Now 'The L Word', that was written by straight males, because it definitely was the male fantasy of lesbos, certainly not the reality.

Women don't talk like that.

"It's written by guys, who happen to be gay, who are sluts. That's what I think. Let's face it most men are sluts...You have a bunch a guys who are sluts, writing for women and telling them they are supposed to act like this... I've never seen the show. Are the girls like that or not?"

It’s got delicious satire and a witty script, the scenery is magnificent from the previews, and the clothes are fabulous, darling. Plus Aidan is back.

I’m in for 90 minutes of escapism, when the DVD comes out

I think I tried watching one episode that I could not make it through. It has the one dimensionality of a porn movie except without the pictures. It’s basically, “let’s talk smut”.

You should watch “Live Nude Girls” just for the one scene with Cattrall in a teddy when the pizza guy comes to the door. It’s a horrible chick flick but that one scene makes it all worth it if you like Cattrall at all.
