Good grief, it’s one fauxtroversy after another. Today’s was started by a left wing feminist blogger over Chris Christie’s response to a heckler. You can watch the video here, there was nothing offensive, but then again I’m not a man-hating, angry feminist with a chip on my shoulder.
What a joke! Christie — responding to hecklers who used the words “going down” in connection with jobs — said: “You know, something may be going down tonight, but it ain’t going to be jobs, sweetheart.” Torie Bosch calls this “an offensive oral sex joke” and acts amazed that Christie put video of it on his YouTube site as if he were “proud” of it “rather than recognizing it as flagrantly demeaning, even misogynistic.”
Now, obviously, the words “going down” mean happening, especially when the subject of the verb isn’t a person and when there’s no object preceded by the word “on.” That is, to refer to oral sex, he would have something closer to “somebody’s going down on something tonight.” Moreover, if one were inclined to make an oral sex joke when the word “jobs” is already in the mix, you’d jape about “jobs.” Going down? Oh, there will be some going down tonight, and there will be jobs, maybe not the kind of jobs you want, but there will be jobs.
Read the whole thing. Unfortunately, there are quite a few people buying into this BS.
