BREAKING NEWS: Conservatives obsessed with sex! Film at 11.


The Politic's Matthew renews his occasional acquaintance with reality by complaining about the National Post's unseemly interest in Teh Nekkid:

It’s no secret that many of us liberty and/or family-minded folks are great fans of The National Post ...

This led me to great sadness today when I went onto their website to read the digital version of the paper. The front cover was just a large cartoon title that said “The Love & Sex Issue” which is tastefully questionable in itself for a national newspaper, but if you look at the picture itself, it also contains the drawing of two nude people behind the “x” which those of us familiar with Japanese pop-culture would classify as hentai. Half of the main section contained articles which were more at home in a Penthouse issue and the Post’s website contains video content that I dare not look at but is clearly part of the above-mentioned theme.

I have since called the Post’s office and dealt with a nice young chap who will be passing along my complaints (the Post is good at responding to these), but in the mean time, I invite everyone else who is disturbed by this extremely poor lack in judgment to write or phone to the Post’s editorial staff:

Yeah ... right-wing media and salaciousness ... who could have imagined?

You had to know that was coming, right?

BY THE WAY, it's not fair to make fun of Matthew for knowing what "hentai" is since, quite simply, he doesn't have a fucking clue.

Matthew is familiar with hentai? Why that dirty, dirty dog. Do you think he's looking at yuri or yaoi?

I was going to say the same thing. Isn't it ironic that somebody who would tut tut so would be familiar with such a term?

Are you suggesting that he's a prudish scold AND a hypocrite? Why, I'm shocked!

All of this blather, and no one thought to link to the dirty, dirty hentai? I guess I'll have to go find the porny National Post link myself.

...He means this? This is the graphic that got him all hot and bothered? Whatever it is, it's nothing like any kind of Japanese animation art, hentai or otherwise.

What a prude...and a dunce.

That looks like something a hormonal teenage boy with very little drawing ability would scribble inside his binder.

I don't know what kind of hentai Matthew's familiar with but it's nothing like what I've seen.

Yes, but it's Matthew - in his world reality doesn't matter.

It must have been the graphic image of the CN Tower that got him all hot and bothered.

Red Tory said...

OMFG, that's what got him all hot and bothered? Unbelievable.

Perhaps the righties wouldn't be so fucked up if they just went out and got laid once in a while. Or at
least got laid without all the guilt, finger pointing and pearl clutching.

Just some raw, raunchy, sweaty monkey sex that rocks the walls and leaves shredding bits of clothing scattered all over the place.

Maybe all that's wrong with them is a massive case of blue balls and that's why they're so obsessed with porn, prostitutes, airport bathrooms and wetsuits.
