B movie actresses with an addiction to objectifying themselves in magazine photo shoots, are by their very nature, the enemy of the spirit and goal of feminism, which is of course, to advance the cause of equality for everyone, both male and female. The list of those walking the anti feminism treadmill is endless and as the age of forty looms over their Botox horizon it appears they are even more desperate to validate their worth. This usually involves removal of clothes with strategically placed hands or male accessories such as neckties. The effect is briefly successful, as the lowest common denominator to which this appeals has a microscopic attention span. Money is made, power changes hands and once again the notion of women as sexual objects with a shelf life of forty years is cemented into the psyche of another generation boys. Eventually for these women, there is the predictable descent into professional obscurity hastened by the horrendous mutilation of faces and breasts. Where is this leading lovely people? To Jennifer Aniston of course!
Jennifer Aniston is not I repeat NOT a feminist. Despite her verbal tiger swipe at misogynist Bill O’Reilly, her most recent gaffe on Regis and Kelly proves without a doubt that this woman is indeed backward. I knew she was delayed in her development when she began her secondary career as a professional whiner, post Friends, whoring out her self pity at the dissolution of her marriage. Not only did this endless passive/aggressive pity party trip through the talk show circuit, displaying the deficit in her self esteem and personality, but it also served to create a division between two women having a public cat fight over a man. Jennifer Aniston walked right into the oldest scenario going: Two women (Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie) degrading and dividing themselves over a man (Brad Pitt) whose ego expands in direct proportion to their female insecurity. Of course, over time, this saga has grown tedious and annoying for the public and the hands on the clock move for us all and in particular for Jennifer Aniston whose acting chops are questionable at best. The premise of every movie she stars in is the same: Jennifer the girlfriend, Jennifer the arm piece, Jennifer the woman on the hunt for the perfect man. These flicks have been going nowhere fast, along with her dewy skin, therefore she and her publicist determined it was time to bring on the aging starlet role, the career changing part to keep her in front of a camera, the pro independent feminist role: The Switch. The premise is simple: A single woman wants a child, can’t find a suitable man with whom to have a child, artificially inseminates and thus she is…wait for it…A FEMINIST. In no time at all, Jennifer Aniston has gone from being a ‘hair icon’ small screen actress, to Brad Pitt’s questionable eye candy, to his wife, to his jilted wife, to his belly aching B list actress ex wife, to an artificial insemination champion of feminists principles everywhere and last but not least, a woman who has a penchant for being backward. In her own words: “Yes, I play dress up! I do it for a living, like a retard.” Well Jennifer, you may indeed play dress up for a living, but you are NOT a feminist who speaks for anyone with a vagina whether we are talking procreation or not. Clearly, you don’t speak for anyone who is mentally challenged either, but you and Barack could get together and discuss the special olympics and why you both won’t be invited anytime soon. You are indeed a social and spiritual retard because sweetie, you don’t have the jam to be in the same league in any way with anyone who is mentally challenged. For that you would have to have some guts and self respect.
Two Definitions for the dictionary lovers in the crowd, the first is for the word retard, the second is for the word actor. For purposes of consistency, we’ll just use the Oxford today lovely people. 🙂

In the time of Shakespeare female roles were played by boys or men, and women did not appear on stage in England until after the Restoration of 1660. Female performers were then called either actors or actresses — it was only later thatactor became restricted to men — and it seems that we are returning to the original situation. Although there is still an awards category at the Oscars called Best Actress, some people are again using the gender-neutral term actor for both sexes. See also
