Hollywood is shocked that Lauren Hutton is criticizing how Sex and the City portrayed women. She said:
“It’s written by guys, who happen to be gay, who are sluts. That’s what I think.
“Let’s face it most men are sluts. That’s what testosterone is supposed to do. As a hunter, if you stayed alive after 30, nature wanted your genes out there. Women were just trying to get the best sperm to make a masterpiece.
“You have a bunch a guys who are sluts, writing for women and telling them they are supposed to act like this.”
Hutton’s remarks reminded me of an article that Ann Coulter wrote for George Magazine when Sex and the City first aired. The article is available in her book, How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must). Coulter wrote:
Do you actually know girls who talk about sex using the d-word and c-word to describe specific body parts? No you don’t. You know gay men who do… Girls talking the way the do on Sex and the City is about as realistic as George Bush playing a gangsta rapper, talking about “ho’s’ and bitches.”
I enjoy the show and I’ll eventually see the movie. I’ve always that it was remarkable that after several years of watching the Sex and the City characters (or “three hookers and their mom”) through their failed hook-ups and relationships, in the end they all became happy once they got the guy and settled down into more traditional roles. Even gay writers want their fairy tale ending.
(Kudos to me for not making the obvious “fairy” joke!)
