When Women Rule The World

This is the name of a new series on Fox:

What if it was "a woman's world"? What if women made ALL the decisions? If men were their obedient subjects?

These questions and more will be explored when a group of strong, educated, independent women, tired of living in a man's world and each with a personal axe to grind, rule over a group of unsuspecting men used to calling the shots on WHEN WOMEN RULE THE WORLD. […]

The participants will be brought to a remote, primitive location where the women will have the opportunity to "rule" as they build a newly formed society — one where there is no glass ceiling and no dressing to impress. For the men, their worlds of power and prestige are turned inside-out and upside-down. And for these women, turnabout is fair play! […]

How will the men react? How will the women treat the men? Can women effectively rule society? Will the men learn what life is like for some women in today's world? Will this new society be a Utopia or a hell on earth? And in the end, who will be man enough to succeed in the new social order?

The scariest nightmares of conservative men brought to life! Watch monster women bite off the penises of brave male warriors! Watch women making a mess of all of it, reduced to weeping estrogen-poisoned blobs of jelly! Watch the return of caveman patriarchy! Bang! Get that! That was my truncheon on your itty-bitty female head. See me drag you back into the cave by your hair! Me the boss!

Can women rule the world? I have no idea, but men don't do a very good job of that, either. We have loads of evidence on that. Interesting, though, that Fox is picking a scenario that few women have ever suggested: Matriarchy. Feminists are all about equality, not about reversing the power relationships. But Fox is all about male dominance, and this show is intended to prop that up.

I'm the polite blogger, yanno. Well, I've just had my fill about politeness today. Fuck those Fox assholes. Fuck them for making fun of the real injustices and troubles the majority of women have to endure in this world. Fuck them for making it into a game to prop up their own petty feelings of threatened masculinity. Fuck them for their disgusting slimy bias and their silly little commercial brains. Fuck them for having the empathy of a toe cheese.

And most of all, fuck them to the deepest hell for suggesting that the only alternative to the current system is some perverse upside version of more of the same.
For a more polite and much funnier post on this, go here.
An afterthought: Suppose that Fox had created the same series except with blacks and whites. Suppose the question they would have asked is whether blacks can rule the world. What do you think the reaction would have been? I suspect the reaction would have been swift and negative.
