here's the article, and it links to the original post on jezebel:
is it just me or do they totally misrepresent what the jezebel article says. The globe essentially gives the reader the impression the article says THE EXACT OPPOSITE of what it's really saying.
clearly, the article points out the idea of female on male sex harrassment is "funny" not in the sense of "ha, that's funny!" but that's it funny because it reverses the gender roles typically seen on TV and puts the woman in the man's "role" making it glaringly obvious to men that no, actually sexual harrassment is not funny and you wouldn't like it if this happened to you so don't do it.
That doesn't mean the sketch SUPPORTS harrassment or thinks the subject itself is funny, it means it's using comedy to get apoint across, and obviously that has to involve making people laugh during the sketch. But didn't all the greatest comedians that spoke on issues get their point across by making us laugh?
seems pretty clear to me anyways.
to me this is a great example of how mainstream media twists and bends facts so they can put whatever spin they want on an article, regardless of the evidence.
Also a good idea of how writers for todays big media really have no sense of what art/comedy is, or that sometimes it uses metaphor to get a point across. kinda like conservatives.
