CA women lawmakers demand
Academy disavow MacFarlane’s Oscar
gig as “new low” in treatment
of women (Video)

San Francisco Chronicle, by Carla Marinucci

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/27/2013 10:44:45 AM

Entertainer/comedian/writer Seth MacFarlane earned a younger, bigger audience for hosting Sunday’s Oscar telecast — but he’s also sparked anger from the California Legislative Women’s Caucus, which formally complained Wednesday to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that his gig “struck a new low in its treatment of women.” The legislative women’s letter to Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences bigwig Howard Koch complains: “In a world where women have historically faced challenges and obstacles when it comes to their portrayal in popular culture, Sunday evening was a setback for women

Comments:
Isn´t this rich. It´s not like there are more pressing things the lawmakers in California should be very concerned about. s/o Where are their complaints for the horrific ways women are treated in movies or porn films?

You mean all those women getting naked for the ´art´ are offended? What a shame. Maybe they should just leave their clothes on as a way to garner respect.

FTA: " ...and a number — backed by the Los Angeles Gay Men’s Chorus — called “We Saw Your Boobs,” starring Hollywood’s leading ladies who have bared all in the movies. That segment was a “misogynistic and degrading dialogue” targeting women “who have shown courage in addressing throught provoking and real life experiences on film,” the women legislators said."

Attitudes like that beg to be skewered. Also, criticizing the number is homophobic.

Flashing some flesh has been a way aspiring actresses have gotten attention in Hollywood for decades. It always seemed sexist to me; but when I was in college and my 20s, often the first thing I looked at when deciding what movies to watch was whether there was any nudity in it -- so I can´t point fingers at anybody.

Let´s be stereotypical California politi-chicks, though: Let´s spend a few weeks flaming MacFarlane for his Oscars bit that teased actresses for doing that... just as long as we don´t do anything to discourage actresses and studios from continuing the practice, itself...

As a symbolic protest against banal politics in CA, I´m thinking of forming an organization officially called "Hot Hollywood Starlets, Show Us Your Boobs".

We´re living in the Age of Umbrage.

I thought MacFarlane was fairly funny and, sure, with a couple winces. He poked good fun at the elites in the seats before him. Sometimes sophomoric, but what the hay. The Academy knew what it was signing up for with him. These offended women lawmakers must have missed the MacFarlane hosted Comedy Central Roasts.

The women´s caucus is a set back for women and free speech. The guy is a dork and heaven know what else, but he is free to make a fool of himself and anything else he wants to do. Back off you silly witches and let this fool bury himself, and if he has a great following of young people, that´s a message of what our oh so well trained youth think of women, including what young women think of older women!

Just shut up and no one will know how stupid you are.

I think MacFarlane is a jerk and should never have been given this gig. Further, I have no problems with groups voicing their disapproval, as this is a free country.

All that said, where was this "California Legislative Women’s Caucus" at when for YEARS Sarah Palin was bullied, her family made fun of--including a handicapped son--she was called stupid, she was made fun every week by Tina Fey, she was called the worst names, she was hung in effigy, a comic stated in all seriousness that some "black brothers" in New York should rape her, a weirdo author moved in next door to her to spy on the family, and floods of reporters went up to Alaska to try to find dirt on her (failing of course)...everything and anything in an attempt to personally ruin a woman because she was a true feminist but was a Republican and conservative as well, and well, we can´t have that can we.

So a few stupid things said and done on one broadcast vs. a multi-year attempt to ruin Palin and discredit conservative women. And what did we hear from this caucus? Not a damn thing.

Got it.

This is phony, manufactured outrage. What was offensive about the song? What I thought was funnier was when MacFarlane announced that he was singing with the Los Angeles Gay Men´s Chorus and said, "I´m not a member, I swear!" Then William Shatner said, "I see that you will join in July 2015."

If liberal women are so concerned about women´s rights, why isn´t Hillary Clinton President? Women make up a majority of Democrat voters but they preferred Obama, whose views on the issues are the same as Hillary´s. Hillary even got a bit of the Sarah Palin treatment when she dared to criticize Obama. Such hypocrisy.

I long for the days when we didn´t have to worry about being politically correct all the time. Don´t say this, don´t say that, don´t express yourself in colorful or meaningful language - go bland, as bland as one can be. If a lady is fat (and let´s face it, there were some chunks up there)don´t say a word, although Bloomberg and Michelle are telling us we´re all obese. Don´t laugh with or at each other. Don´t, don´t, don´t. What a boring life.

New questions about ex-CIA director’s
Benghazi claims ahead of testimony

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role.

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

White House takes step toward

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

The White House on Friday touted the story of a “staunch Republican” who says he’s getting the best coverage he’s ever had under ObamaCare. “I am a staunch Republican, a self-proclaimed Fox News addict, and I didn´t vote for the President,” Mark Beard, a retired psychologist from North Carolina, wrote in a letter posted on the White House website. “And I´m here to tell you that ObamaCare works. I´m living proof.” Beard said he was paying $428 a month for chemotherapy treatment and was upset when he got a notice from his insurer saying his plan would be canceled. But he said

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

Gun control groups working to push further gun control in California worry that state senator Leland Yee´s indictment on arms trafficking "may slow the legislature´s consideration of gun restrictions this year." According to AP California News, on March 27 organizers of more legislation said "the charges filed against...Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, could cloud the future of two of his gun control bills." As Breitbart News reported on March 26, Yee supported an "assault weapons" ban in California and a requirement for background checks for ammunition purchases.

Some gay marriage supporters think so. “A 55 percent majority support marriage equality,” states a report accompanying a new TargetPoint-GQRR poll. “While young people are at the vanguard of change, this survey also shows increased support among older voters, Catholics, non-college educated voters, and Republicans.” The poll results were presented at a Thursday kickoff event of Americans for Marriage Equality, a bipartisan group formed with the support of the Human Rights Campaign, a major gay rights organization.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
