A sexy full-bodied red?  I have no idea what that could look like.  None, I guess I'll have to use my imagination and maybe one day someone could show me.

At its core, this type of writing is just alienating. It's hard for heterosexual women and gay men to relate to these type of randy narrative. And those two demographics represent a big share of the wine market.

There are two arguments in this article. One is that this writing is sexist and so bad, the other is that this writing is counter productive since it alienates the customer.

It should be easy for the writer and Atlantic to provide any data at all that wine drinkers are offended and alienated by these sorts of descriptions.

When I consider the huge amount of attention sex has on the human brain, well, all I can say is I look forward to the Atlantic Wire's desired future where no writing except for designated sex scenes makes any allusions at all to sex, or to the aspects of a women's body that men and women find attractive, or to romance or the pursuit of sex.

Sounds like a wonderful world and I encourage the Atlantic Wire to pursue and enforce that.

It's a pouty, spoiled temptress of a wine that needs a good spanking. Oh yes.

Just shut the fark up and pull the spout out of the box already.

This wine is shallow and pedantic.
 
2013-10-01 01:27:43 PM
I don't always drink wine, but when I do, I prefer Syrah.  So f*ck you.
 
2013-10-01 01:27:50 PM
And to be fair sluts need no shaming, being a disease ridden hedonist is punishment enough
 
2013-10-01 01:28:01 PM
Yeah, cause who would want the hot girl with a short skirt, right? Please get me the uptight, hard to get one!

I love syrah. And sluts. And sluts with syarh.

I've never understood the strategy of hoping to find easy women and when you do, calling them sluts and whores. It's like going to a restaurant and complaining how lousy  the food is, on top of the small portions.
 
2013-10-01 01:31:33 PM
If I learned anything from such slutty threads, it's better to buy a Russian (or perhaps Baltic) wine. They aren't nearly as demanding as western wines are.

It's creating separation. You trash something so you can't become emotionally involved in it, thus reinforcing your inner image of being a ball-bouncing, dick-swinging king of the jungle, master of the domain. It's also done to foist rejection on the other party who was going to reject you given time.

I've always thought that anyone who wants to sleep with me is a person of refined taste and distinction.  it is quite a compliment to your whole being to want to sleep with me.

Sounds like a version of the old, "I'd never join any club that'd have somebody like me as a member."

I've found that the advice "treat a lady like a tramp, and a tramp like a lady" works extraordinarily well. And when you've got something that works, why question it?

Whereas being "deeply troubled" by a vintner's simile is something everyone can relate to.

I like big SLUTS and I cannot lie
You other brothers can't deny...

/Count me in as party of the Pro-slut party.  A woman who is aware of, and unshamed of her own sexuality is aGOOD thing AFAIK, and a HELL of a lot more fun in bed.
//One of my favorite people, and old, dear, and platonic friend,  in the world often uses the nickname DRS-One for "drunken red-headed slut"  precisely as a fark you to people that think women should be ashamed of the term

FTFA: The idea that women who dress in a certain way that doesn't show skin are more worthy of being pursued than women who don't is already an incorrect and deeply troubling notion

I stopped reading.  Not just because I realized it was going to be a sexist mind-trap, but because the author doesn't understand logic.  Its not that they aren't WORTHY of pursuit, it's that they don't REQUIRE persuit.

/slutshaming is stupid
//recognizing that sluts exist is not

if syrah is a slut ina low cut dress at the end of the bar, a Zin Blend is the sorority girl who shows you she can wrap her ankles behind her  head and tie a cherry stem into a knot with her teeth less than an hour after meeting her

I really hate "slut shaming". Just the term. Where are all these people shaming sluts? There is absolutely nothing wrong with going to a bar purely to pick up a one night stand. If, however, you dress, talk, and act like a slut don't get offended about it. Either dress/act more appropriately or own your slutdom.

Newsflash: Guys don't care. If you show interest in having sex they will have sex with you.

Any wine made by yellowtail will felch with you and let you piss on it. Hands down, sluttiest wine EVAR.

I think the label would be more subtle.

Notes of hickory and dark chocolate. Also, whore. Pairs nicely with red meat, hearty pastas, and penis.

Perhaps it should instead explore a writing style in which the focus is on what might attract women and gay men, just to keep things nice and even:

"A Syrah is like an alpha male, fresh from a business meeting and due to the gym in 26 minutes. He doesn't have time to woo you with mystery; he knows exactly what he is and what he wants with you: an intense, no-nonsense experience with bold flair. What's that you're eating? A garden salad? Syrah will blow that away and make you forget you even had it. Better have a steak or spicy Italian, instead, because that's what Syrah is all about. Don't worry about it, Syrah has already handled the bill.

A Pinot noir, however, is that low-key, well-travelled, slightly older gentleman sitting alone in that window alcove pouring over a dog-eared East African history primer. Pinot noir be there next month, you see, learning the local languages and helping with community projects. He's been on a few of these, but had to cut short his Russian trip for undisclosed personal reasons, which left him with a scar along his jaw line on the left side of his face and some dark memories. He's looking up now, lost in thought. Will Pinot noir ever see Saint Petersburg again? Only time will tell..."

Is wine basically talking about white women, while the Tequilas are different Mexican women, Scotch are European ladies and Bourbon or Rum are black women? If we follow that logic, then Sake is for Japanese. So what about the rest of the pacific-asian ladies? Is Gin an Indian woman? What are Armenian or Iran women? So many questions unanswered.
