imageVia Roger Ailes, K. Lo. wonders if misogyny has finally come true based on the prophecy of Pope Paul VI:

Browse on over to Cosmo on the newsstand with me:

SEX POLL: 30,570 Dudes Tell What They’re Dying for You to Do in Bed.” [To all of them? That’s one long month.]
. . .

How Dirty Is His Mind? Filthy, to Be Exact. You’ll Be Shocked . . . and Intrigued
. . .
WHY MEN CHEAT IN AUGUST

Forty years ago this summer, Pope Paul VI predicted that men will lose respect for women. They will “no longer (care) for her physical and psychological equilibrium.” The man would reach “the point of considering her as a mere instrument of selfish enjoyment, and no longer as his respected and beloved companion.”

Could Pope Paul have been predicting the August 2008 cover of Cosmopolitan? Isn’t what he was describing today’s reality? And isn’t that something Jessica Valenti would join me in thinking is pretty bad for women (and, indeed, for everyone?)

Finally, after years of trying – panty hose, unequal pay, denying suffrage – MISOGYNY HAS BEEN ACHIEVED. This must have been what it was like to see life first form on earth, those simple amino acids combining in some primordial pool, watching some other amino acids and trying to figure out how to keep those acids from taking its job due to simple amino set-asides.
