Check out this extremely misogynistic, unfunny glimpse into the crumpled wad of Kleenex that is the soul of Lee Siegel. Supposedly a parody of the next Sex and the City movie, it’s an ugly collection of fantasies of sexual and economic humiliation involving the main characters in SATC. (Ha-ha?) Here are just a few super-hilarious excerpts. Do you notice any recurring themes, especially the one involving the one main character who happily remains unmarried and unpartnered with a man?
Samantha, who now works for a federally funded agency that offers oral sex to unemployed bankers. . . .
Tragedy hits Small (the girls’ new nickname for Big, who hasn’t had an erection since September 2008) when Bronx Community College cuts off his financial aid and puts an end to his dream of becoming a refrigerator repairman. . . . Samantha thinks she might be able to get Small an administrative position at her new job, a federally funded agency that offers oral sex to unemployed auto-industry executives. . . .
I had heard this guy was a piece of work, with the rather sad (or should I say limp?) legacy of career ending sock-puppetry, but this “parody” is just so super classy. (Yeah, this is the same guy who published a book about the dangerous lack of civility on the web last year!) What an ugly brew of aggression, fear, and loathing–I guess he thought he’d throw in the misogyny for free!
