You take these same words and put them in the mouth of Janeane Garofalo or Nora Ephron talking about men, and no one would blink an eye.
The only news here is that some women can’t take an obvious joke.
During an interview Sunday with The Hollywood Reporter at the Toronto Screenwriting Conference, Aronsohn derided the female-centric television shows that have premiered this year on major networks, including NBC’s “Whitney” and CBS’ “2 Broke Girls.”
“Enough ladies, I get it. You have periods,” he said. “But we’re approaching peak vagina on television, the point of labia saturation.”
Unfortunately, he didn’t stop there.
“Two and a Half Men” is known for its less-than-flattering portrayals of women. Aronsohn, who is also an executive producer of the show, told conference attendees that he didn’t feel bad about how his show presents its female characters. “Screw it… We’re centering the show on two very damaged men. What makes men damaged? Sorry, it’s women. I never got my heart broken by a man.”
Cue the outrage.
Of course, on the same day, Alec Baldwin can quite seriously called a woman a “nutty bitch” and no one cares because Alec Baldwin is a card-carrying leftist and sacred cow.
Oh, and he writes for the Huffington Post.
