Tom Osborne: Protecting Your Children from Titties Since 2004

football good, titties badIs former Nebraska head football coach Rep. Tom Osborne a hypocrite for founding the Sex and Violence in the Media Caucus? Of course not.


Let's say you're the head coach of a college football powerhouse, the kind that corn-fed, apple-cheeked farm kids look to for role models. One of your players throws a woman down the stairs! Another invites a woman into his room! (Sweet.) But then "pin[s] her down and ejaculate[s] on her face in front of his friends"! (Ooooh. . .) So, as that football coach (remember?), you'd just suspend the players for a game or two. Fair enough. Or, as Tom Osborne said when he was in just that position with a player he coached: "It's not as though Lawrence is an angry young man all the time and a threat to society." That's right. Just sometimes. And just the female half.

What's more, no breasts were revealed. And as far as we know, none of these episodes took place during a nationally televised half-time show.

Thanks to reader D.P. for helping us to clear up this issue.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
