johns hopkins’ sexist column

There are really no words for this “opinion column,” i.e. misogynist screed, that Jezebel unearthed from The Johns Hopkins News-Letter. I’d hesitate to give it even more page views, but it’s already been taken down. (You can get the gist of it from the Jez post.)

I’ve written before about the lessons I learned as a college paper opinion editor, but you can be sure this wouldn’t have run on my watch — or even that of my least enlightened male colleagues. Also, what’s up with the use of “bear” instead of “bare” in the headline? Stupid mistake or stupider joke?

ETA: Here’s the cached version.

Update: Ah, the old “satire” defense
