Explanation of Conservative Trope
When men make crude jokes objectifying women on screen, Trumpian conservatives love to defend it as it's just a joke. But, you don't see nearly as many crude jokes or sexist terms about men.
Conservative Trope Examples
- Laird (James Franco) tells Stephanie (Zoey Deutch) her mom "is a MILF. Like, a genuine MILF. And if it wasn't your MILF, she'd be a MIWF, a mother I would f*ck" even after she asks him to stop talking about "how hot my mom is."
- Rick "Owen Wilson" and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) talk about "the shiny new set of cans on Mandy Bohan (Alyssa Milano)" and agree her breasts have to be fake or else "she's buying her t-shirts at Baby Gap" and then begin debating the breasts of all the other women in their group.
- Seth (Jonah Hill) tells Evan he is "truly jealous you got to suck on those t*ts when you were a baby" after Evan's mom, wearing a very tight and revealing shirt, leaned into Seth's car to have a chat with her son.
- Fletcher (Jim Carey) enters his apartment elevator and very blatantly stares at a woman's excessively portrayed cleavage followed by his trademark silly smirk at the camera as the doors close. The camera continues with a zoomed in shot of her breasts and they make small talk where Fletcher says the reason everyone's been really nice to her is because "you have big jugs." He makes further crude comments about the size of her breasts and the next transition is the elevator opening with Fletcher holding his face because she hit him.Staff AsideIt's funny because the premise of the movie is that he cannot lie and so these must be honest, natural impulses and because she was too oblivious to notice his excessive ogling.
- Billy crows "Oh Veronica Vaughn. So hot! Want to touch the hiney! Arrooough!" in a high-pitched voice as Ms. Vaughn walks back to the classroom after scolding Billy for making fun of a student.Staff AsideOf course, she lets the immature sexist comments slide. The worst is when women are written to act normally in the face of very sexist behavior. The second worst is when over the top sexist behavior can be dismissed as humor because it is so over the top. The third worst is when over the top sexist behavior can be dismissed as humor because it is expected because of the specific genre (in this case it's an Adam Sandler movie so we know anything sexist is meant to be a joke to be laughed at. ha ha.)
- Bus driver Chris Farley says "that Veronica Vaughn is one piece of 'ayyce.' I know from experience, dude, if you know what I mean" after looking up Ms. Vaughn's skirt as she walks up the bus stairs.
- Harry encourages Larry to "look at the buns on that one" as a woman in tight pants and her male companion walk past them on the sidewalk.
