“Slut TV” — It’s Not Just for Cable Anymore

For 20 years before that, he wrote book, movie and concert reviews as a stringer for the Flint Journal, a midsize daily newspaper.

Lori Ziganto’s post, Feminists Mute on Slut TV, Yet We Have Them to Thank For It, is still generating lots of attention; but last night, prime time television’s big event was even worse than the shows she mentions in her post.

ABC’s The Bachelor (and The Bachelorette) are Slut TV gone mainstream, and possibly worse than Keeping Up With The KardashiansRock of LoveThe Bad Girls Club and The Real World.

Why?  Because the above cable shows wear the “slut” badge proudly, as though the tramp stamp were tattooed on their foreheads.  They are trashy and proud—but mostly just trashy.

The Bachelor/ette pretends to be about actual love and marriage, and the pursuit of real happiness.  But intimacy cannot be generated in front of a network camera; and the humiliating process of applying for the star’s love as though it was a job interview (which are even more private in the real world) breaks down all aspects of personal modesty.

Future prospective spouses should take note:  Strike One against the attractive person you just met should be – he or she was willing to appear on Bachelor/ette. Add another strike for each round they were able to survive in this process.
