Well, she's right about psychics. Bloody shysters.
Not a winner anymore.

I'm sensing a lot of hostility in you /lurk.

I sense you lost someone close to you... whose name begins with... I'm getting a B or a P... or a T or a G... or an M or an I or a J...
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Wait, ???
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Yes, I actually agree with her on that one. Possibly for different reasons, though.

Well, to be fair, pimps actually PROVIDE the service offered, whereas "psychics" commit fraud.

Also, I'd love to ask her whether she'd legalize prostitution. Hard to stay pro-freedom and be anti-legal-prostitution.

That said, from what I've heard about the show and movies, she's right that Sex and the City should be offensive to women.

I dont get that. Why does anything need to be offensive to an entire minority or, in this case, sex? I like sex and the city, she doesn't. I don't speak for all womankind, neither does she. She should stop putting words in my mouth since she's all pro-women's rights and all...except if I have a husband. Then I need to be supplicant while remaining strong and independent...
Dont look at me, I'm irrelevant!

Not really, Sam. She's against giving kids condoms because she believes it gives them the wrong message; a bit like saying to kids "Hey, don't smoke, but we know that you're going to, so here are some nicotine patches and low-tar cigarettes". I can understand the logic there.

Yeah, never really understood how she can say women can be strong and independent while also having a mandate of submission; gender doesn't automatically make you a good head of household.

But having sex with condoms is less unhealthy than smoking.
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

...and we want to encourage sexuality and display it as a natural part of human existence, not a vice.

People aren't naturally pre-diposed to smoking, either. It is not more or less a definite that they will smoke their first cigarette (lasting for an embarrassing mere few seconds)...

I'm sticking to my previous statement.  Women may or may not see it that way, but they should be offended by Sex and the City.  If what I've read is true, the show is about four shallow women whose lives revolve around the newest pair of $400 heels and finding the man of the week to sleep with.
Probably not a Goat, either.

They should only be offended by it if they are stupid enough to think that any depiction of a woman is supposed to be a depiction of all women.
