Pop some MoDoze

As a service to Wonkette's readers, we boil down Maureen Dowd's interview with Nerve to what's really necessary.




MoDo saysWe say
You know, when I read the description of the stuff in my home, I flinch. It's all scary, like my mermaid collection and my cocktail-shaker collection and naked women everywhere. When I bought the house, a French artist had rented it before me and she had put in these campy murals of semi-clothed Greek men and women. You flinch? It sounds like you've got enough aquatic-themed sexual personae in your apartment to cockblock Aquaman!
I think women lost a couple decades where we just kind of wasted time trying to do things exactly like men, thinking that we were supposed to take golf lessons but never talk about babies or shopping.In fairness, you were repeatedly warned about those golf lessons.
[When asked why she hadn't talked much about these issues in her Op-Ed columns.]

I was busy with war and torture.

Friedman was war, Safire was torture.
[Asked about the sexual energy at the New York Times]It's very staid here. And that's the way we love it. That's what the New York Times should be. It's a Grey Lady. A Grey, decrepit, dessicated old lady. With a scorching case of the clap.
In the book I have that monologue of a friend of mine who's been teaching at Ivy League schools, where he described how these women, these fantastic Ivy League students, who are so beautiful and so Greenwich-Connecticut preppy, and at night they put on these hooker-like outfits and go out and get really drunk and give guys blowjobs in corners. And then the next day they hate themselves and come to conferences in his office and say, "I hate guys." That just about sums up the Gawker business model!

The point is that they have all this power. These are girls who are at the head of their class. But then at about one in the morning the power shifts because they're sort of drunk and there are no rules about dating anymore. So I think that that's the problem, that women are doing all the things they did pre-feminism plus all the things they did post-feminism.

This happens to Ivy League women? Yeesh. Sounds so Vassar to us.
I think the problem with hypersexualized society, which does seem to rise during a red-state period, is that it's not sexy. There has to be some subtlety. Eroticism as opposed to just derangingly sexualized everything. Oh, my. Has my lustrous red hair whooshed in front of my eyes again? Let me just gently flip it back...there. You were saying?
[When asked if she'd be willing to say if she'd ever faked an orgasm.] No. That is way, way, way too personal. Well, then this interview has been largely pointless.
I'm trying to spur sexy conversation between men and women. Grossing out the college-aged children who see her book on their parent's bedside table is just a value add.
It just never occurred to me that by the year 2000 catfights would be bigger than ever. Luckily, it occurred to some people (cf. "Gawker business model).
