Details magazine, which once upon a time distinguished itself by being the gentleman’s mag that a feminist could read, long ago lost my interest when its editors evidently decided that not being routinely offensive toward women was a liability. Even knowing they’d gone down that road, this piece of misogynist shit article really takes the fucking cake.

Is it Ok to Demand Anal Sex? piercingly asks the headline, and just below is this image:
And I regret to say that the image is not even the most offensive part of the piece, which goes on to explain how gettin’ anal is a point of pride for the modern man.
Phillip, an engineer in Chicago, says he and his friends request a ride in the back seat because it’s a harder-to-reach goal than old-fashioned intercourse. “Once a guy has anal sex, he’s put on a pedestal by his peers,” he says…
For other men, the appeal of anal penetration is less the novelty—and the fact that it gives them a good story to tell over beers—and more the psychology.
Dear American Men:
British Men drink beer a lot. A lot. And yet they don’t seem to judge the value of everything, from the leader of their country to the most intimate sex acts, by how awesomely these things enhance their beer-drinking experiences. What gives?
“For most of my friends, it’s sort of a domination thing,” says John (not his real name), 30, a writer in New York. “[It’s] basically getting someone in a position where they’re most vulnerable. My friends enjoy that and they tell their friends they did it. But it’s not like girls are ready for it—it’s something they do when they’re really drunk.”
You know you’re onto a hot story when one of your sources is probably a rapist, eh?
“Ideally, every girl is a disgusting pig who wants it,” [Albert (his middle name), a good-looking 29-year-old who’s fairly well-known in the music industry] says. “But only with you.”
You sound charming.
Also, I’d like to introduce you to a concept called “the virgin-whore dichotomy.”
P.S. I bet you’re the kind of guy who says douchy shit like “Dylan was overrated” as if you’re the first one to say it, aren’t you?

My letter-writing complete, I shall now make for the nearest post office, where I will proceed to bang my head against its exterior cinderblock walls.
