Mad Henry Makow and Women in Jeans

Henry Makow, or "Mad" Makow, as I like to call him, is ... well, ... hmm. He's a pundit actively promoted by Jeff Rense, a Christian, but he's Jewish, he's the "inventor of the board game Scruples," he's a right wing, Illuminati fearing, paranoid bigot, homophobic and misogynistic male, stuck in a Twilight Zone version of the 1950s. His latest rant is an "annual update" about women in jeans. Every year he republishes his article Female Gender Confusion is in the Jeans,  with some tweaks.  It's funny, and would be even funnier, if it weren't for the fact Makow is serious, deadly so, and that he has fans. Admirers. Men, and women, who agree with him. Scary, that is. Be sure to read the comments after his post at his site; many are from women.

He opens with a quote from Deuteronomy, so that tells you something, then proceeds to enlighten us as to what it is about jean wearing women that is so wrong:

Jeans are a fitting feminist symbol. They are farm workers' and miners' clothes. Feminism is an invention of the central bankers who also created and financed the socialist and communist movements to control people.
Makow is an anti-Semite, and uses code words for Jew like "central bankers" a lot. One of his pet theories are that Jews, er, bankers, invented feminism to destroy men and take over the world.

Makow offers advice to men, warning them of jean wearing pinko commie lesbian feminist women:
Men, a woman wearing jeans is a red flag that you might be dealing with "GID" --"gender identity disorder." Her jeans are saying: "I don't want to be a woman. I don't want to look good for men. I fear and distrust men. I want male prerogatives. I want to look like a man. I want to be a man."
He weaves all this into Stalinist Illuminati take overs, you just have to read it to see for yourself. He ends with this:
There is nothing more beautiful than a women wearing a summer dress. I can still remember a young woman I saw five years ago wearing a frock. That's how powerful femininity is. Let's not let highly-paid pious feminist and lesbian "change agents" destroy it. It's time for real women to relegate jeans to garden or farm work.

Did he just say "frock?" I haven't heard that term since I was a kid when my grandmother used it, and I'm old!

Makow's website is Yep, "save the males." Oy.

Makow's fear of women is almost funny. I mean, if he didn't really see women as smarter and better, he wouldn't be so afraid of them taking over the world. :-)

Besides that, I think most men would agree that there are few things sexier than a woman in some tight fitting jeans, but then again, sexiness probably scares Makow because that is a power women have that he will never have.

I'm actually pretty pissed off with Makow's lame-ass post. This is a guy who courted and married a Filipina lady much younger than himself, which means he likes his women a) young and b) poor and vulnerable. Not saying that all Filipinas are like that, I know many powerful ones, but there's a predatory mindset about these old dudes who go around stalking young women from developing nations. I know the Internet is all about freedom of expression but I am torn thinking that some idiots will read his posts and try to internalize some of the sexist bullshit he subscribes to.
