'Blachman': Most Sexist Show In History Showcases Unattractive Men Judging Women's Naked Bodies

This can't be real...

Once in a while, a show comes along that is so overtly sexist and blatantly misogynistic that it almost brings joy to feminists because it gives us hard evidence that our world is submerged in tons of nasty gender inequality. It makes sexism an undeniable fact rather than a concept that's up for debate. The show, called "Blachman," is so vulgar that I wonder if it's not a feminist conspiracy whose sole function is to prove how screwed up our view of women is.


The concept of the television program, which appears to have been thought up by a group of baked 14-year-old boys in their mom's basement, features two very mediocre looking and old "judges" evaluating the naked body of a silent woman. Unattractive aging men telling women what they think about their body? Kind of sounds like an X-rated version of my morning jog.

Thomas Blachman, who the show is named after, came up with the concept and will be joined by a "guest judge" every week. He has very humbly maintained that his show is "the work of a genius." Critics like Knud Romer have said, "It's more like a claustrophobic strip club which only serves to cement classic concepts of male dominance."


In his defense, Blachman told the Daily Mail, "he entire idea of the show is to let men talk about the bodies of naked women while the woman is standing right in front of them. The female body thirsts for words. The words of a man."


I am sorry but... holy fucking crap this is too much

2. The question I would like to ask is where

did they find women willing to sign up for this. Oh, wait. I know the answer. "Hey, I'll be on the telly!"

4. Yes, where could they ever find women who have been brainwashed to think male approval

is so important that even an old ugly stranger's opinion is worth hearing.



Howard Stern seems to have built an empire partly around having women come in to be evaluated by him and his crew. Celebrities who are already famous subject themselves to his 'antics'... so its nothing to do wirh getting famous or getting on the telly/radio.

6. Then there was the whole

'Sign my rack' thing going on with one of those talkshow hosts, women getting their cleavage autographed. Libertarian types, usually.

3. Ew, Ew, Eww

It vaguely--only vaguely mind--you reminds me of the movie "Audition", a horror movie where a widower held a fake audition to find a wife. (Big mistake)

It also reminds me of a particular scene I won't describe from the movie "The Devils Rejects". (Another horror movie)


Besides How stupid can you get? "The female body" what, all of them?------Just the volunteers Dumbasses.

7. I saw that article and first thought it was from that unfunny "Daily Currant" that some folks

imagine is a satire site, but always publishes tasteless bullshit.

Apparently, though, it's 'for real.'

So much for those "evolved" Europeans who are supposed to be so much more ahead of the game than those behind-the-times Americans--yet another example of the reality not matching the idea.

I think we'll wait for a long time before 'mediocre looking, old, unattractive aging" WOMEN are judging the buck - nekkid bodies of men on the telly...but hey, ya never know....maybe that's Season Two of this train wreck....

10. I hesitate to add a discordant national note, but having just arrived from the "America Sucks" Camp

I can't help but reveal the latest update on this intelligent, high end material, and that is,

that it comes from...drumroll please...Denmark !

I'm shocked -- shocked, I tell you, because to hear it on DU, this sort of schlock

is the province of us "dumb 'murcans", not, God forbid, our Evolved Euro Brethren.
