Tom Ford: All Men Should Be Penetrated To Better Understand Women - MILO

Fashion designer and movie director Tom Ford has turned heads with a statement declaring that all men should be sexually penetrated at least once in their lives.

“I think it would help them understand women,” said Ford in an interview with GQ.

“I think there’s a psyche that happens because of it that makes you understand and appreciate what women go through their whole life.”

“It’s such a vulnerable position to be in,” he continued. “There’s such an invasion. I think that that’s something most men do not understand at all.”

Needless to say, the openly gay personality’s comments sparked quite a bit of reaction online – and quite a wide range, too.

Some have accused Mr. Ford of sexism.

Some are apparently speaking in code.

One Facebook user accuses Ford of trying to “mansplain” how the female brain works and reducing “that functioning down to nothing but a sexual act.”

Then, of course, there are the trolls.

“Interesting idea,” writes one user on Facebook. “I dare Mr. Ford to sashay over to the mosque nearest to his home, in all his fabulousness and pitch his plan after Friday prayers.”

“Or is it only straight, Midwestern, white men that he is trying to troll here? SMDH, you liberals are really becoming tedious at this point.”

Another user remarks, “As an Orthodox Christian who is interested in men’s matters, I think the big consequence for us would be that there would be no men to ordain to the priesthood.”

“They would all be iconographically women. In that case, there would be no plausible barrier to women’s ordination. Natch, I don’t wish sexual violence on anyone, so this would be impossible.”

And then there are these guys.

According to the Huffington Post, Tom Ford’s remarks appear to be a follow-up to an interview he did in 2004 where he similarly proclaimed, “Every man should be fucked at some point in his life.”

“It’s really not that different than having a massage,” he said. “It’s very easy. It’s normal.”
