The “Sluts” Of CPAC

-Submitted by David Drumm (Nal), Guest Blogger

“Dr.” Melissa Clouthier (left) isn’t happy with some of the female attendees at CPAC 2012. The Dr. is in quotes because Clouthier is an alternative health “doctor” and part-time chiropractor. That is, a woo-meister, who thinks “Feng Shui makes lots of sense.”

Clouthier has some tips for women who wish to succeed in business or politics.

1. No cleavage. That’s right. Cover that up. I say “no” in absolutist terms because women will show a tiny bit and that’s okay, but really, in a business environment where ideas are the priority, a dude thinking about your ta-tas is counter-productive.

Ta-tas? How can anyone take someone who says ta-tas seriously?

2. Skirts no more than three finger-widths above the knee. Why do I even have to write this? Well, because someone is allowing these girls out of the house with mini-skirts that reveal too much.

That’s right, someone else is to blame for “allowing” these girls to dress like that. Those poor girls are just victims of someone else’s negligence.

3. Save the stilettos for Saturday night on a date with your boyfriend.

How does being on a date with your boyfriend remove the sluttiness from wearing stilettos? The girl has already attracted her boyfriend, the stilettos aren’t for him.

4. Bend at the knee. No, I don’t want to see your butt.

Why is Clouthier looking at girls’ butts?

It makes perfect sense for a female to attract as many potential mates as possible, she wants to have as large a group as she can from which to make her selection. It is the females of most species who make the sexual selection. The males compete to win the female’s favors. It is one of the female’s strategies for reproductive success. These are the gender roles conservative culture warriors fight so hard to maintain.

    Intra-Conservative Sex Scolding

    Clouthier was interested in policing women for clothes that suggest there’s a body underneath them and telling young women no one will marry you if word gets out that you like having sex. I guess she’s suggesting conservative men are terrified of having to live with a woman who might on occasion want to get naked and get busy, suggesting to me that the differences between liberals and conservatives might be more vast than I thought.

  2. I will give the Professor credit for defending women who dress a bit provocatively as merely extending their pool of eligible males with whom to mate. What women don’t know however is that they could dress in pretty much anything other than a Burkka and plenty of men will hit on them. Perfectly good looking girls agonize over dress and makeup etc. for no real reason. I personally think that dressing up is often more about a woman’s vanity than anything else. If I was a girl I would probably be broke from buying clothes, makeup and Ugg boots.

  3. Wow, T-man! This has to be one of your top three worthless guest posts in quite a while.

    “Dr”?? Do only graduates from AMA-sanctioned institutions get to use Dr. without the “quotes”? Gimme a break. How many people do chiropractors kill each year? How many “Dr”s of dentistry still fill kids’ mouths with deadly mercury fillings and slavishly promote medicating all of us with fluoride. I guess only bona fide mainstream quacks get the respect of being called DOCTOR without the quotes.

    That flushing sound . . . the credibility of this blog by the day.

    “She’s ugly, she’s old,… And a slut, and a scold.”

    John Gay (1685–1732),

    I’ll speed me to the pond, where the high stool
    On the long plank, hangs o’er the muddy pool,
    That stool the dread of ev’ry scolding quean.

    Benjamin West, :
    There stands, my friend, in yonder pool,
    An engine call’d a ducking-stool;
    By legal pow’r commanded down,
    The joy and terror of the town.
