Letterman’s verbal violence as verbal rape, against sentient beings and wordsmiths like a woman, is part of the male cruelty as usual against women. Hence, some women appear to adopt the “feministing” approach as a way to manage the male-dominant cruelty, i.e., the upthrust middle finger on the Playboy-manufactured playgirl icon of naked womanhood at their blog. It’s similar to the adoption of the N-word by comic Chris Rock in his comedic romps against racism, or self-adoption of “bitch” and the C-word by some women who know what men call them behind their backs (because they’ve also heard it called to their faces).
To put Letterman and verbal violence in the biggest-picture context possible, consider what Harvard and Oxford men of science have said about”Demonic Males.” Demonic not as woo-woo religion but as the anthropological and zoological cause of male-dominant violence. This is the violent multi-cultural ground of being — no abstraction of theory — by which women are subordinated to male-dominant views (if not violence) throughout global culture.
