Why we shouldn’t be calling Melissa Bachman a ‘gross whore’

Let’s accept that many of us are not fond of hunting nor can understand the killing of animals for sport.

Let’s accept that boasting about it on social media is even more disturbing and bound to create some sort of backlash.

Let’s accept that the killing of a beautiful, male lion, for all intensive aesthetic purposes, doesn’t sit well with a lot of people.

Let’s discard, for a moment, the debates around hunting being legal and focus on an open letter by a blogger named ‘Scoob’, which has received a lot of attention over the last week or so.

“This is in reference to the social media outcry yesterday, when the woman in question posted a victorious photo of her and a dead male lion she had shot in an enclosed environment,” the blogger writes. “Please note that that this letter is not intended to discriminate against woman (we can assume blogger meant ‘women’) or the female race in any way, shape or form. Just one woman. Because she’s a gross whore and regresses the gender exponentially.”

Sorry, what?

I’m not sure how someone killing a lion has any bearing on my gender or the ‘female race’ as a whole, but it’s absolutely absurd to even confuse the issues.

Also, Scoob, a ‘whore’ refers to a prostitute or a sex worker. I suspect you need to re-evaluate your synonyms for ‘hunter’, ‘heartless’ or even ‘killer’.

Scoob’s open letter to Melissa then goes on to infer incestuous sexual relations with her cousin, hopes that she contracted AIDS while visiting our country (way to sell SA as a tourist destination there Scoob) and says:

“Quite honestly, if it wasn’t for the fact that horned up Americans flutter their eyes at anything with tits, you would just be another burly tobacco chewing bearded redneck killing shit and getting average ratings. So congrats on pimping yourself out with guns, you’re a role model to children all over the world.”

Scoob, Scoob, Scoob.

Did you not hear that in this 21st century that we live in, women are perfectly capable of being lambasted for their actions without having their gender or sex bought into the mix? You’ve undermined all intellect in your argument – and there are some valid points in your letter – by reverting back to the childish and archaic tradition of making the issue about the fact that she is a woman. A slow-clap for completely diverting us away from the real issue here.

I’d be interested to know if you found that Bill Clinton’s sex scandal regressed the ‘male race’ or if Hitler, who you liken Melissa to in your letter, was a ‘male-whore’ for his actions during the Holocaust. Because you have to admit, if you went around calling Rasputin or Starlin gross sluts, people would be wondering what the hell you were on.

Let’s stick to facts here Scoob and face the issue of hunting head on and let’s leave Melissa’s ‘tits’ out of it.

    I’m not sure I follow so some guy a blogger or this site? States that the killing of a lion had to do with a womans behavior while here in the states? Just to state otherwise he is saying that this woman due to here behavior she has the audasity to resume a positon like such? Well Scoob is his name it sounds like 1st he dosen’t get any any man who does not like the idea of a sexually open women and confuses that with the idea of her being a whore is blatanly marking himself as some Chrisitian. And post and present Christian idealism and paradoxial fortune of the male tounge!!! All in all how could we as human beings look at each other in ways that are oblivious to what we see in the mirror we all come from a women and that where our hearts should stay in hers!!
