Sexist against your own sex…smart!

I used to feel sorry for Brooke Hogan. Her family is falling apart before America’s very eyes and somebody is continually lying to her, telling her that cutting off the top half of her jeans looks good.

(I learned it from my mommy)

However, I am starting to lose my empathy for Brooke. Perez Hilton has reported that Brooke made the following statement:

“You know what? I am actually not that much into voting. I think it’s kinda crazy that a woman is running, because I think that women deal with a lot of emotions and menopause and PMS and stuff. Like, I’m so moody all the time, I know I couldn’t be able to run a country, ‘cause I’d be crying one day and yelling at people the next day, ya know?”

Brooke Hogan

Is this girl serious? First she tries and fails to be a pop superstar and now she’s commenting on the state of American politics!?! And her opinion counts why? She doesn’t even vote!

Why is the Hogan family so screwed up? I grew up loving Hulk Hogan. My brother and I were die-hard Hulkamaniacs, but now that I’m older I realize that Hulk should have probably spent more time at home raising his little delinquents than “fighting” with Andre the Giant. Because it definitely seems as though Brooke’s cradle-robbing mother (She’s is currently dating one of Brooke’s high school classmates) failed terribly in the parenting department. The saddest part is that Brooke markets toward young girls. And there are young girls out there who look up to Brooke for the mere fact that she’s blonde, rich and on television.  And this is the message she has for them!?! I know I am contributing to her relevance and adding to the commentary about her, but someone seriously needs to either take away her speaking privileges or sit her down and make her read a book or two. And no, anything by Candace Bushnell doesn’t count.

Why do we have so many women on television and in the media who are as dumb and worthless as they look? It’s just unfair to place the weight of representing women as successful, smart, and capable on Tina Fey’s shoulders.

  1. You didn’t even bring up the fact that she looks like a drag queen. Get down to the 90s girl! I’m sure lots of people will line up with dollars in hand to give you a kiss on the cheek.

  2. this is an issue that i am afraid is more pervasive than we may think, it’s bad enough that young girls in certain regions of this country are raised to believe this sort of nonsense, an ‘enlightened’ era like this & an education may not be enough. for instance, an old friend of mine, a female, explained to me that she could never vote for a women because they are “too emotional”, particularly a menopausal woman (referreing to Senator Clinton). this is a friend who is nearly thirty, grew up in the rather progressive state of MN & is college educated! for one of the first times in my adult life, i was speechless! is it me or are we starting to socially regress from the sixties & seventies? the statistics say no, but they still show disparity… than again, as my firend would likely say, & no doubt thinks, you’e a white male, why should you care? well if you knew my mother, you’d know why it boggles my mind to hear that from a WOMAN & i’d like to think if i ever have a daughter, maybe she could be the president of the united states some day!
    another good commentary! thanks!
