Girls Get Pissed About Girls Gone Wild

Unfortunately, Doug Stanhope, a comedian who formerly worked with Girls Gone Wild creator, Joe Francis, will be in Beaumont, Texas this weekend. I keep hearing about him on the radio, and of course, the announcers are giving away tickets and hyping him up. That's why I was more than pleased this morning to read this article in the Beaumont Enterprise showing area women who are less than pleased about this guy and his association with the videos.

Jennifer Fagen, an assistant professor in the department of sociology, social work and criminal justice at Lamar, said the videos take advantage of young women who already feel a need to fit in with sexual stereotypes. While she's not opposed to women being sexual subjects - that is, acting sexually on their own terms, with their own control - the "Girls Gone Wild" girls often are intoxicated, Fagen said, and that's unfair. "I think (series founder Francis is) taking advantage of young girls who do nothave the capacity to consent," she said.


I couldn't have said it better myself. Plus, I'm glad that area girls aren't as excited about the videos as mainstream media would allow you to think. Girls Gone Wild did make an appearance in Beaumont several years back, and girls were EXCITED about it. That's why I like hearing that not all the younger generation in Texas thinks this way.

I also like that Stanhope made himself look, well, not so bright:

Stanhope said he finds the videos exploitative but also said they feed on a society that already degrades women. He pointed to laws that prohibit women, but not men, from going shirtless, as restrictions that encourage women to feel shameful about their bodies. "It was a lark," he said. "I just went out for a week's worth of nights and made fun of dumb chicks at last call."

I think Dougie here just wants to see some boobies. Good thing Beaumont just finished a Hooters eatery.

Classic. My favorite is the part where the Comedy, Texas owner states that the guy (Stanhope) is brilliant, but that he has to pay the bills somehow. And as for "Dougie" himself, I think he's just a big boob.

I've been reading a lot about Girls Gone Wild lately - glad we don't have this in the UK, although I'm sure there's plenty of young drunk girls out on a Friday or Saturday night who'd be up for it. I like what Fagen said about young women feeling a need to fit in with sexual stereotypes - there must be something between nun and porn star, but there doesn't seem to be much space for it in the media at the moment.
