Madonna Emasculates Her Husband Yet Again

madonna-girl.jpg

Madonna has uttered another big mouthful. After she’s done robbing several continents of their last pennies with expensive concert tickets, the self-proclaimed “visionary” is planning to dip her toes back into the film industry, but this time behind the camera to hide her wrinkles. On her new plans:

Making movies for me was never about being a big movie star, it was about being a good actress. But it’s not easy with critics going after you before the movie is even released. It’s easier to be a visionary as a director.

Guy Ritchie is probably worried that his wife will surpass his own directing abilities, which we all drank in when we saw the new Swept Away. What? You mean you didn’t see it?

      Hey, sorry to be the grammar Nazi, but it’s “emasculate” not “immasculate.”

      I saw Guy’s last movie. It starred Jayson Stratharn and was horrible. Did I say it was horrible? I meant awful, wretched, pretentious, cliched, and all too smart for itself.

      So, I don’t think it would be emasculating to say that Madonna might be a better than Guy. I think Lourdes and Rocco could do better.

      Finally, I do think that it is really sexist of you to continue the sexist belief that because a wife is more successful than her husband she must emasculate her husband. Frankly, that’s mindset from 1970 not 2006. A lot of men are successful professionals or are the primary care provider for their children while their spouses work. None of these men is less manly because his spouse makes more cash or has a bigger career. Isn’t it ironic that you are pointing out the stereotypical behavior in the Pace commercial and you’re doing the same thing? Gay = bad. Less successful husband I saw Guy’s last movie.

      P.S. I really do love Queerty. You guys are great; but sometimes, a lot of the gay media disappointment with inane topics like this or the gayness of Superman.

      hi Noah, I think your argument is well thought-out, but please consider for a moment that Madonna is not your regular woman. I think any man would be emasculated just by being married to her, period.

      Now she’s entering Guy’s field of work. Theirs is a marriage that definitely would not have existed in 1970, and I think when you’re dealing with someone who is larger-than-life like Madonna, your own personal power will be diminished just by being around her. She’s not emasculating him because she’s a woman or his wife, but because she is Madonna. I’m sure in her mind if she can learn to rollerskate in a day, directing will be a piece of cake.
