Gawker runs a truly tasteless story by a then 25-year-old guy (now outed as Dustin Dominiak) who had what I would call a somewhat dry one-night stand with Christine O'Donnell three years ago. The worst part? He cattily disses her ungroomed pubic hair. "Obviously, that was a turn-off." Not really the kind of story that I needed to read, but noteworthy for its boundaries-thumping salaciousness.
Unlike Christine O'Donnell, I don't want to limit or control what people do or don't do in bed. If she wants to get naked and refuse sex, that's her business. (Literally, considering how she's used abstinence as her career so far.) But the article struck me as worse than a tabloid and misogynist in tone—not because it was kiss & tell, but because it was kiss & diss. It reminded me of a construction worker I once heard scream across the street at a woman who was ignoring him, "Fuck you, you fucking bitch-dyke!" It felt like revenge.
