The Playboy Club: whose bad idea was that?

7 Oct

Dear NBC,

What the hell were you thinking?  If you wanted to compete with Mad Men, then perhaps you should have thought a bit more about subject matter.  I’m not a prude.  Ask any of my friends or family.  I’m not even for censorship on networks.  I think your standards and practices usually screw up television shows.  For the last few years, I will admit, the networks are getting a bit edgier due to competition from cable, but I believe you have hit a sore spot.  And actually, quite insulting spot.  Do you think any female actually wants to actively be reminded of Playboy?  Because the majority of us women don’t.  We think it sucks.  Sure some women don’t mind it.  But I do.  And the reason I do is because it creates unrealistic expectations in men about how women should look and act.  This is no longer the 1960s.  Or even the 1970s.  Women have gone through a lot to get where they are so they can enjoy the privilege of working over 40 hours a week if they are lucky enough to be employed and still, for the majority of women, deal with grocery shopping, most household chores, decision making when it comes to domestic matters and child-rearing if they chose to go that route.  I’m not sure how watching a bunch of women dressing up in bunny costumes getting their asses pinched is supposed to make us feel better and apparently, neither did a lot of the American public (which restores a bit of my faith in it considering…) since The Playboy Club was the first drama you cancelled this season.   Maybe nobody told you because I know a lot of the guys in Hollywood do frequent prostitutes and go to topless bars and love to exploit women and it is like an open secret in the film and television business but it happens all the time.  So, guess what?  Women think that sucks.  And yeah, some of those Hollywood wives turn their heads the other way because they’d rather drive their new Mercedes or have their private dressing rooms at Neiman Marcus, but their economic greed ends up being bad for the rest of us females, who might actually have a bit of integrity when it comes to expectations of the opposite sex.  I don’t give a shit how many biologists and doctors and scientists tell us it’s different for men.  They are visual creatures.  Guess what all you visual creatures with penises… there is this scientific thing called evolution.  We all have to evolve.  Maybe you can evolve to not have to use porn as much and become a bit more human.  This is directed straight to the Hollywood guys who try to justify their behavior and then make it mainstream so the rest of the women in the world have to deal with it.  I, for one, am sick and tired of having to smile and nod my head and say it’s biological.  It’s called being selfish if you are in a relationship and constantly jerking off to porn.  Unless you are so gross your wife would rather have you jerking off to porn and then you might want to rethink your marriage.  Every time you take your penis in your hand and jerk off to porn, you are sending a message to a female who cares about you that they are not good enough and you would rather be with some whore.  So do us all a favor, if you want to do that, then go on and be with them but don’t waste decent women’s time with childish behavior.  And Hollywood men, stop acting like big babies who can get away with everything.   It’s really shameful and your mothers should have taught you better.  Lecture over.  See, this is why networks should not be bringing out misogynist crap.  It pisses me off.  And that was a calm rant.
