I Really Hope I’m Not Sexist

March 5th, 2013 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

If you’ve heard the latest TANcast, you may have heard me rant at length about Jennifer Schwalbach’s feminist tirade on the post-Oscar SModcast. After editing the episode, I worry that I come of as a “woman hater.” I like to think that I’m not. I think women should be treated equally under the law and in everyday life. But I wonder…am I the kind of guy I hate?

Truth be told, I found the “We Saw Your Boobs” number at the Oscars hilarious. Does that make me a sexist pig. I get that it’s supposed to be ironic. The joke is supposed to be that this is an entirely inappropriate number for the Academy Awards. But I still laughed my silly ass off. So am I any better than the guy cat calling at women? Jennifer Schwalbach had a complaint. She felt that her gender was being objectified. While I understand her point, I feel she horribly over reacted…but who am I to say that?

Basically I am conflicted. Sometimes I want to be the nice guy and the jerk at the same time and you just can’t. Sadly, I fear this time, I am the jerk.

Ah well…BOOBS!!!

PS-I would have laughed just as hard at a song called “We Saw Your Dong,” but we all know that would have been a way shorter song.

    I feel like as long as the woman is in on the joke, it’s okay. And I’m one of those huge “annoying ass Femi-Nazi” types (I say that in quotes because I’ve been called that for, yanno, believing in my rights) so if I have your back you’re good.

    As long as you don’t actually believe women are inferior and deserve little to no rights, you’re not really sexist, I think.

    You are not a woman hater. Jennifer Schwalbach overreacted. If anything, you’re a Jennifer Schwalbach hater. I too am in that club. She’s part of the reason I can’t stand Kevin Smith anymore.

    I thought the song was hilarious.
