Meet Nickelodeon's Trash-Mouthed Misogynist Jason Biggs

I often hear the word "misogynist" thrown around a lot. It doesn't matter if it is uttered by a liberal female or a conservative female it is still the same. The comment about the eighth grader was inappropriate but a lot of adult men talk about adult women in a sexual manner just as women talk about men. If this is a surprise to Michelle Malkin then she has definitely led a very sheltered life or she is being less than truthful perhaps hypocritical. In my experience I've noticed the latter to be true. The only thing that a conservative woman and a liberal woman have in common is that they need smelling salts to revive them.

The people I have associated with my entire adult life never talk about people in such a vile way. Men who talk about women like Mr. Biggs does should not be allowed close to our daughters, or sons for that matter. Nickelodeon will be kept off our television from now on.

I don't see this having anything to do with homosexual/bisexual. I have heard devoutly heterosexual men make crude remarks about women, including underage women. My wife has told me about heterosexual women who do the same. Disgusting no matter what, but this is not a sexual preference issue.

Maybe, just maybe there is a contingent of folks who think that men objectivizing women with explicit sexual talk is wrong, period. And for a man to talk that way about a minor female is truly repulsive. Nic promotes itself as being kid friendly so whenever one of their celebrities carries on this way it reflects very poorly on them. The fact that they did not respond to handle the situation immediately speaks volumes.

How about women who talk about men in a sexual manner? What is your position on that?

As far as I'm concerned, there's no difference. It's just as vile and disgusting.

As I see it, most women(or at least the women I know and associate with) do not "talk" about men in a disparaging manner. For us women,talking about men usually involves romance, love and ok, maybe sometimes an "explicit" statement or two about what you might like to do when alone with a man, but men usually go for the crude, demeaning/humiliating type of talk; there's no love or romance at all. It's all about competition and conquest. There is a BIG difference.

What gynocentric horsecrap. The old "it's different when women do" argument. I've often noticed that women who put down porn often have a copy of 50 shades of grey somewhere in their bedrooms. I know where not talking about porn I'm just using it as an example.

I meant to say "It's different when women do it".

I am the mom of a 12-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy. They have been huge fans of Nickelodeon TV programming throughout their childhoods. We even took them to the Nick Hotel in Florida, where we stayed in a SpongeBob SquarePants family suite. But enough is enough.

Like disgusted parents across the country, I put my foot down and am standing up for decency: No more Nick.

This weekend, the Viacom-owned children's network will debut a reboot of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" TV series. One of the lead characters ("Leonardo") will be voiced by actor Jason Biggs. On August 29, Biggs published...
