Kate On “Lost” Is Proof That Men Love Crazy Bitches

Kate on “Lost” is one of the most vile female characters on TV. She’s also proof that the general consensus is that men love the chase and are most attracted to women who are a challenge, drive them crazy, and will cause so much drama that she overshadows the smart, kind, and loyal woman standing next to her.

The producers have tried to make Kate interesting, by writing her first as an independent bad girl who’s evolved into a nurturing mother figure, but ultimately, she is a cliche. She’s a tease, who tempts both the Good Guy (Jack, the doctor) and the Bad Boy (Sawyer, the con artist) with her attention grabbing antics, bouncing between both like a ping pong ball who just can’t decide who she really loves. Yawn. She’s also a pain in the ass. She screws up plans, takes matters into her own hands when she really shouldn’t, and acts high and mighty. She is easily the most annoying female character on TV since Kimmie Gibbler and she’s also “Lost”‘s biggest flaw. You can quote me on that.

Women’s Roles In the BC Era

In old movies about prehistoric times (Conan the Barbarian, One Million Years B.C., etc.), the women were gorgeous and scantily clad, but at least they didn’t have to sit on the sidelines. Check out the trailer for 10,000 BC. Women figure in it for about .0001 seconds. And apparently the role of women in the movie is equally sucky — they don’t have much going on except for getting abducted and sold into slavery, and staying at home trying to stay warm. “In the classic prehistoric film, whether it is Quest for Fire or The Clan of the Cave Bear, the women don’t just stand around waiting to be rescued,” writes Joe Queenan. “They go out and strangle people or lop off their enemies’ heads or eviscerate sabertooth tigers. They do all this with brio and gusto. And they usually do it while wearing bikinis.” Heck yeah. [Guardian.co.uk and Amazon.com] Keep reading »
