On my way home tonight my radio was tuned to one of the local talk radio stations. Now normally this station has very funny, very liberal people on. Hell they hoist love-lines. While some of their people can be assholes they tend not to be misogynist asshole as the guy I heard to night.
First thing I heard one his show was a guy calling in talking about dating a girl that had blamed the holes in her walls on her abusive ex, then said two years later she'd turned me into that guy.
My reaction was pretty much....The fuck?
I waited for the host to smack the guy down and when he didn't I changed the station. Normally that be the end of it, but later while flipping around I landed back on the same station.
Right in the middle of his lovely rant about never ever owning or buying property with a woman. That you should only let a girl move in if your going to marry her, and in opinion you should never get married. And how most women he's been involved with try to get you to buy property with them, and he says it has if these girls are just after his money.
While I was still in shock over the stupidity of this, he took a female caller. She's railing on him about his women hating ways, and when he asks her for examples she cites him saying that men should never date a woman with kids.
To paraphrase him: "I don't want another mans garbage."
I wanted to rip the radio out of my car and throw it at someone. Namely Tom Leykis.
I've emailed the station, with the strong request to replace him with ANYONE else. I'm going to email one of the women on the morning show about it, along with the woman that co-hosts the mid-day show. Give their general personality I'm pretty sure the might at least be able to give me the right numbers to call to make my voice have the most impact.
He isn't local but syndicated so hopefully if enough people get pissed he'll be replaced with a different show.
If Tom Leykis is broadcast in your area call or write that station to try and get him off the air.
I would like to say this in closing: If you move in with a guy and are helping or making the mortgage payment? Make sure your name is on the deed.
If he refuses to but your name on the deed but wants you to pay, get a rental or lease agreement with him. I don't care if you love him, protect yourself.
If you own the place? Make sure your name is the only one on the deed if you marry him. In joint property states get a pre-nup or if you don't and thing go to bad get a good lawyer that will fight for you.
