Fox’s The Mindy Project made unnecessary and dull sitcom history by airing the first ever network episode about anal sex. The episodes title, “I slipped”, implies that her feckless Ob/Gyn boyfriend attempted to corn hole her without warning, which predictably irritated a host of feminists who are advocating for notarized contracts before two people make out. Mindy Kaling, the show’s creator who plays an annoying version of herself as the lead, offered an explanation:
“There was no sexual peril in there; it was not a situation where she felt unsafe or was objectified. She just was startled.”
Often when someone is startled they are in a compromising situation. However, without an element of surprise, sex and television are boring. Hence, a nice baiting of the feminist crowd pulled off by a sympathetic female who creates, produces, writes and stars on the show. Feel free to portray subject matter on national television which would get a dude fired from his job at Sonic Burger. This is the double standard we’ve all been waiting for. I look forward to Kaling receiving multiple Emmys for her upcoming snowballing episode.
