SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Two female California state lawmakers have condemned Oscar host Seth MacFarlane's comments during Sunday's awards presentation as degrading toward women and asked the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to use better judgment in the future.
Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal and Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, both Democrats who lead the Legislature's women's caucus, sent a letter to Academy President Hawk Koch on Tuesday, requesting that the organization disavow MacFarlane's behavior.
They objected to the comedian's focus on the physical appearance of several actresses and quips about nude scenes.
"Furthermore, there was a disturbing theme about violence against women being acceptable and funny," the lawmakers wrote. "From topical jabs about domestic violence to singing about 'boobs' during a film's rape scene, Seth MacFarlane crossed the line from humor to misogyny."
I guess these idiots have never seen Family Guy. American Dad or The Clevland Show.....

Ah yes, the Granola state...Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

If the legislators are concerned that Seth McFarlane saw the boobs of actresses who were paid quite well to expose them, then they should talk to the Hollywood producers, directors and agents who talked them into it.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
