A Christian “motivational” speaker got way more than he bargained for when he agreed to speak at Richardson High School in Texas on Wednesday.
Christian speaker Justin Lookadoo was rejected by students at Richardson High School for being a sexist
As he spoke to an assembly full of students, Justin Lookadoo had no idea that he was being totally rejected and humiliated on Twitter by the very students he was talking to. But that’s exactly what happened.
Most of the students didn’t even want Lookadoo to speak, but the school and the PTA hired him to do so anyway. Their decision came back to bite them in the ass. Lookadoo’s website is called RUDateable.com. The contents of the site were made available to the student population. Unfortunately for Lookadoo, the young men and women didn’t appreciate it. As part of the site, Lookadoo and his co-author Hayley DiMarco created a list of incredibly sexist “dating rules” that harken back to a by-gone era in American history and encourage rape culture.

For instance here’s a few of the so-called “rules” that Lookadoo would like boys and girls to adhere to.

  1. “Dateable girls know that guys need to be needed. A Dateable girl isn’t Miss Independent.”
  2. “God made guys as leaders. Dateable girls get that and let him do guy things, get a door, open a ketchup bottle. They relax and let guys be guys. Which means they don’t ask him out!!!”
  3. “Men of God are wild, not domesticated. Dateable guys aren’t tamed.”
  4. “Being a guy is good. Dateable guys know they aren’t as sensitive as girls and that’s okay. They know they are stronger, more dangerous, and more adventurous and that’s okay. Dateable guys are real men who aren’t afraid to be guys.”
  5. “Keep it covered up. Dateable guys know that porn is bad for the spirit and the mind. They keep women covered up.”
  6. “Dateable girls know how to shut up.”
Sounds like the kind of list one would find tacked to the wall of an Iranian government building, or in Rick Santorum’s bathroom.

Texas is changing in ways that will doom the Republican Party in the future. If we can get the Latino vote out in force, we can make Texas a battleground state and eventually a blue state as more progressive young people join the ranks of the voting public.

It pains me that Bush, Perry etc. have made Texas out to be this mythical Republican mecca. It was a Texas-born president (LBJ) who passed Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, etc. along with the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. I'd like to see us return to that legacy.
