No, Samantha Bee's vulgarity isn't equivalent to Roseanne Barr's
Conservatives are on the warpath for Samantha Bees head after the
comedian called Ivanka Trump a feckless on her cable TV show
"Full Frontal last night, using a vulgar reference to the female
anatomy that my editors wont let me repeat here. Bees slur, for
which she apologized Thursday, was prompted by Trumps ostensive
refusal to stand up to her fathers heartless immigration policies.

considered sexist. A woman calling another woman the same term isnt
great. It coarsens the culture and gives men cover to use a term we
Just so were all clear on that first word though, take a look at the
dictionary definition above. As you can clearly see, feckless does
not mean white devil. It is not an animal of any kind. It is not a
pejorative way to attack someones religion. It means a person
lacking strength of character.
This is a fair critique.
