It’s okay to be a sexist pig if you write for a Leftist newspaper

Pittsburgh Tribune Review columnist Eric Heyl opined yesterday that the NRA will fail to attract new women shooters. According to Heyl, women are more interested in fashion than firearms, and firearms are not fashionable. Here’s some of Heyl’s comments:

“Spending several hundred dollars on a serviceable handgun might leave them without enough money to get the full treatment at that next visit to the day spa.”

“Carrying a gun in a small purse would leave less room for more important items, such as lipstick or compact.” “Gunpowder residue might stain the new Karen Scott blouse they just bought at Macy’s.”

Apparently, Heyl believes the little ladies simply can’t handle worrying their pretty little heads about icky topics as rape and self-defense. Or maybe, like many chauvinists, he feels threatened by the prospect of self-reliant women who don’t need protection by an insecure man, and who can provide the ultimate “NO” to unwanted advances by lizards operating under the delusion they are God’s gift to women?

The National Organization of Women issued no membership alerts to boycott the Tribune-Review. Curiously, there’s lots of copy on Rush Limbaugh, where they catalogue his “sexist offenses”.

Do you want to get in touch with your inner pig, but don’t want to face consequences? Get a job in liberal media first.

  1. I posted this to the source article and will post it here:

    Way to do your background reporting.

    The opening of the lead editorial in the Trib today:

    "Big Labor's incessant bellyaching over having to give up anything -- while cash-strapped state governments have nothing left to give -- has reached a retching new low: a threat from a Michigan union honcho to weaponize government jobs.

    So much for "fairness," even under unions' dubious definition."

    The lead of its third editorial:

    "Here are some of the latest outrageous, sometimes humorous, quotes from or about the liberal media, courtesy of the Media Research Center:"

    Its guest columnists today are Michelle Malkin and noted local conservative Ralph Reiland.

    The Trib is staunchly conservative/libertarian. Anybody in Western Pennsylvania knows this, as do plenty of people outside the region. To make an assumption based on a column obviously written as humor without doing anything to check it out makes old Howard here a cruddier journalist than anyone he criticizes.

    And then, of course, there's this:

    Feel free to actually back up your accusations with facts before you mouth off.
