An Politcal Arguement Of Sexual Harrasment. Refers To Katha Pollitt's Article 'kissing & Telling'

1415 words - 6 pages

InnocenceIn the nation Katha Pollitt argues in her article 'Kissing & Telling' that the media is against liberals, and or her views. Allan Levite in his article for the National review, 'Bias Basics,' Levite argues that the medial is biased against conservatives. Both authors present arguments with deficiencies. They both have motives to be biased. One of them has to be right, but using the proof the two authors sight you could not tell which one. The two columnists each write biased columns that do not prove their points well.In Pollitt's argument she says that the media ignores the real issue. Which is a male harassing a female. She says that the media ignores the other cases of more serious offenses dealing with the same subject. She sights two other cases that she would have us believe are more commonplace than incredibly stupid elementary school kids. Her first example is the case dealing with the sixth grader who received death threats does not even clearly state what kind of hate was involved. It could have been sexual harassment, or it could have been because she carried Spam around on her forehead. She only names two cases as her examples. So in her magical 'evil people bash feminism land' her argument is just as common as what she is complaining about, or maybe less common. No one is trying to bash feminism. This was not planned out to happen. (I hope)Also, kids in elementary school always are not thinking about getting their secretaries to have sex with them for raises. Personally, I think kids are stupid. Even I was a stupid kid. When I was in third grade a guy, Tommy, bit my ear. Because he bit my ear I have not become accustomed to Sado Masochist gay sex dealing around ear biting. Tommy has not been going around biting people's ears and getting turned on by this. He now cleans pools for a living. I doubt either of us cared at the time. Although I remember some crying. People who pee in their pants in grade school usually do not pee in their pants when they are grown up to be heads of the country. We would know about it if they did. Many children form weird attractions to doing many things when they are small. I used to think Bon Jovi was the coolest band ever. Now I laugh at my obvious immaturity, because I do not believe that anymore. Kids have no idea what the hell they are doing they're 'dumb' and 'cute.' (And getting more sexual activity than me and those bastards can't even multiply)Even Pollitt justifies my argument of the kid does not know what the hell he is doing. 'De' Andre's whole family was famous, until they stopped returning reporters' calls after he punched and bit a teacher.' The kid probably will not grow up, and go around biting and punching teachers.Pollitt also tries to argue the point when she asks 'And how can we raise children to respect another's limits at 13-- and-- 30 if we think it's cute when we do not.' She compares what the kids did to 'sexual aggression and violence.' This is a little bit strong...
