HOW Much?

I am not a wealth envy-kinda guy, and I generally have no problem with people going after money… but yikes:

Kevin Costner’s estranged wife Christine Baumgartner is awarded $129,000 per month child support – just HALF the amount she demanded – amid VERY ugly divorce war

Do they have a dozen kids that need supporting?  Indeed not:

The former couple share three children: sons Cayden, 16; and Hayes, 14; along with their younger daughter Grace, 13.

They will also be splitting expenses down the middle for the kids’ pricey private school tuition, as well as their extracurricular activities, which includes sports.

Baseball gloves from Gucci, tennis shoes from Jimmy Choo, Tiffany reading lamps, leather-bound autographed first-edition school text books, diamond-encrusted tennis racquets from Fabergé:  I’m amazed that the amount was pushed down to a lousy $129k per month from the $500k / month (!) she’d been seeking.

Here’s what gets in my craw.  If this gold-digging whore (thank you, Mr. William Burr) had been the wife who helped ol’ Kevin become this movie star, I might — might — be a little more sympathetic towards her “needs”.  But no:  Costner ditched his first wife (who had supported him through the lean years before stardom) and went on to marry Wife #2, this tree-gardener woman (after shagging women of the Elle McPherson ilk).

So in a sense, I guess he got what was coming to him, eventually.

I’m just astonished that he could actually afford to pay $129k per month, but then again he’s a big Hollywood star.  (And just to be clear, I actually like him as an actor, and know quite a bit about his background because my late wife Connie was very briefly his agent, back in her Hollywood days.)

The sums of money just make my head spin.

How To Kill Off Women’s ________ Competitions

It’s really simple:  just open them up to men, or men masquerading as women.  We’ve seen it happen in women’s sporting events, and now:  beauty pageants?

A transgender woman has been crowned Miss Netherlands for the first time in the beauty pageant’s history and is now set to compete for the Miss Universe crown. 

Rikkie Valerie Kolle, 22, made history after she won the competition in the Dutch country on Sunday.  The new Miss Netherlands wore a red gown as she was overcome by emotion while receiving her crown from her predecessor Ona Moody and reigning Miss Universe R’Bonney Gabriel from the USA.

Of course, it had to be the Dutch — they, or the Canadians — who went Full Kneebend to the LGBTOSTFU crowd.  (No pics because ugh.)

So hey, to all those feministicals who wanted to ban beauty pageants because Oppressing Womynz or whatever, you’ve got your wish, because now that girly-boys are bona fide  entrants, few men are going to watch the poxy events (because who else watches this stuff?).

Few men = tiny viewing audience (WNBA, etc.) = no advertising interest = no revenue = eventual demise.

I’ve always thought beauty pageants were a load of bullshit, ever since they stopped making them about, well, beauty and started judging entrants by how well they played the violin or how well they understood world politics or similar irrelevancies, instead of how well they filled a bikini.

Let ’em all collapse into the trash dump of history:  nobody cares.

It sucks for the girls, though:  beauty pageants have always been a way for young women to get college scholarships, or modeling contracts or even movie roles.  But if that avenue dies off, well… there ya go.

Equitable Income

The feministicals are always talking the “income disparity” or “wage gap” between men and women — i.e. that men are paid more than women for doing the same job.  (It’s bullshit, of course, but run with me on this one.)

Well, that’s not true of all jobs.

Let’s take… oh, OnlyFans for example.  Here’s an example (sent by Reader Mike L, thankee)  of how a fairly plain-looking woman was able to pay for her roof repairs simply by posting a few saucy pics of herself on said roof (sample pic below).

Now I don’t have a garage roof needing repair, but had I gone to OnlyFans and posted a few pics of myself in a bathing suit on top of a roof, does anyone think that I could have raised $10,000 — or, for that matter, 10,000 cents, even?

(me looking all Afrikaans, with sjambok*)

I think it’s unfair that women should have access to this kind of disparate income opportunity and men don’t, so I call on the federal government to pass laws to ensure the equalization of income between men and women on websites such as OnlyFans.

Fairness in all things, right?

*And I apologize for any feelings of extreme nausea caused  by the second pic.

Useless Recommendation

Of course, pretty much anything that the loony Gwyneth Paltrow suggests is going to be utter bullshit, but this one… oy.

Finding the perfect gift for the tricky men in your life can prove near-impossible at times – but luckily Gwyneth Paltrow is here to help in the form of her rather unique Father’s Day gift guide, which not only suggests a $64,000 trip to the Arctic Circle as a potential present, but also a male sex toy — a $219 hands-free prostate stimulator from the brand Hugo.  (“The base and tip of the device each contain a powerful vibrating motor: the insertable head massages the prostate while the external head delivers satisfying vibrations to the perineum.”)

Frankly, while even the description makes me a little queasy, the only acceptable sex toy that I’d accept to massage my prostate and taint would be Salma Hayek, and even then I’d have to run that by New Wife first.

At least her nails are short and manicured… and you can all stop right there.

Next Banned Word: Macho

At least, this is the inference I get from the latest bit of governmental foolishness, Euro Division:

Spain has announced plans for an app that will tell wives if their men are doing enough housework. The new app intends to address the gender imbalance of housework and will log the hours a family member spends doing chores.

And which department is coming up with this lovely example of Big Sister snooping?

Ángela Rodríguez, Spain’s minister for gender equality and domestic violence, said her department was in the process of developing the free app.

One might argue that the rationale for even having a “minister for gender equality and domestic violence” is dubious (and one would be right — “gender equality” is a bullshit concept, and “domestic violence” is a police matter already).

The minister was speaking at a conference in Geneva discussing discrimination against women. The minister presented a report at the convention on Spain’s women’s rights. 

Rodriguez said nearly half of the women who took part in a survey by Spain’s National Statistics Institute said they did the majority of the housework in their home. 

Oh boo fucking hoo.

Wonder what the fat bitch would think of this little joke?

I can hear the Sisterhood’s wailings from here.

Anyway, Spain is pretty fucked up about all this:

A Spanish court has ordered a businessman to pay his ex-wife £180,000 for 25 years of unpaid domestic labour, based on the minimum wage throughout their marriage.

And oh yeah, the ruling was made by a female judge — like you didn’t suspect that already.

If the hapless Spanish businessman refused to pay the money and went to jail for his disobedience:  now that would be truly macho, Señor.

Never gonna happen, though.  Looks like Spanish men have been pussified like pretty much most Western men (to coin a phrase).
