I (Matt Palumbo) am not sure what the requirements to be a writer for the Huffington Post are, but I’m fairly certain you have to be the kind of person who wakes up every morning wondering what will offend you that day.So what offended their team of professional victims today? Apparently when Jimmy Kimmel had actor Megan Fox on his show, he dared talk to her about — gasp — her pregnancy. Horror.
The Huffington Post’sdecided to call Kimmel out because she can’t be bothered to write about substantive topics, but there was a bit of a problem…
To quote from the insane HuffPo piece:Megan Fox stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday to promote her new film “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” and had a telling exchange with the show’s host, Jimmy Kimmel, that spoke volumes about the way Hollywood treats female bodies.
One difference between Ms. Cucinello and myself is that I (Matt Palumbo) see women as “people,” not “bodies.” Just a random aside: does anyone else think the SJW obsession with referring to people as “bodies” reflects the fact that they view the groups they deem “marginalized” as political pawns instead of actual people?
Cucinello then quotes an exchange between Kimmel and Fox:KIMMEL: Do you feel, in a way, like you lied to me by coming out here pregnant and not indicating it in any way?
FOX: I mean, do you feel like I owe you that sort of intimate information?KIMMEL: Yes, I do.
The audience laughed and clapped after Kimmel joked that Fox was a liar, but this line of questioning is not amusing. Women are not obligated to announce that they’re pregnant, even if they’re famous.
ISIS is selling women into sex slavery by the thousands — but thank God we have first-world, middle-class feminists like this blogger to remind us about the real problems in the world by reading into other people’s conversations.
Notice, too, that Cucinello has no problem when the Huffington Post did exactly what Kimmel did — minus the permission, perhaps. (TRIGGER WARNING: Facts.)

No doubt HuffPo’s extremely diverse editorial board will get to the bottom of this.
