you're FUCKING WRONG. violence against and abuse of women is NOT entertainment. it never was and it never should be. she promoted it. she's backing off now, but the damage is done (so to speak). please do NOT vote for linda mcmahon. a vote for her is a slap in the face to women
do you see what you're turning out? when young people (men and women, boys and girls) think women getting the shite kicked out of them (figuratively as well as literally) is ENTERTAINMENT
It is mind-boggling that the voters of Connecticut would even consider electing the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment to high political office -- until you realize what an abysmal job the news media have done of holding her accountable for the actual product she produced.
Make no mistake about it: until Linda McMahon decided to run as a Republican for the United States Senate, she was one-half of one of the most culturally destructive, and blatantly misogynistic, business partnerships in the history of popular entertainment. Under Linda and her husband Vince McMahon's leadership, the WWE has featured some of the most brutal, violent and hateful depictions of women in all of media culture over the past twenty years.But incredibly, the rampant misogyny of McMahon's WWE has gotten scant coverage during this fall's U.S. senate campaign in Connecticut..................
