this "Simpsons" parody is not for the timid

If you don't want to hear Marge Simpson utter the phrase "my pussy," don't watch:

I found this funny and appreciated its political message.

It all seemed so transactional!

I'm not sure I grasped the political message you refer to. I'm not pro-abortion by any means but I've never understood the disconnect between "it's a woman's body and she has the right to choose" and anti-prostitution laws.

Anyway, it was definitely a well-done parody.

Among the many fronts of the US culture war is the issue of a man being a "cuck," i.e., a simpering, cringing, emasculated husk of a human being who lets women walk all over him (originally from the term "cuckold," i.e., a man whose wife is cheating on him). In the parody, Marge's sexual liberation has gone way beyond what feminists from decades ago had aimed for, and Homer has finally had enough. Materially speaking, Homer loses out in the end (and he loses Marge, too), but he gets respect from the judge and retains a measure of self-respect.

Ah, good stuff. I guess I didn't pick up on that right away because I'd either have enjoyed Marge's show or been gone before it started. One of those.

"Gone before it started," eh? You're a love-'em-and-leave-'em kind of guy.
