Planned Parenthood to Tucker Max: Keep your money

April 3, 2012

Tucker Max has made a living degrading women and writing about it.

I remember the first time I read something by Tucker Max. It was a tale of how he screwed over a woman and then treated her like garbage. 

Max has made a living out of being crass and misogynistic and there is an audience for his type of entertainment.

His memoir, "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell," was an enormous success but the movie with the same name that followed did not fare as well.

You can read his stories and more about him at his site tuckermax.com.

Max recently offered to donate $500,000 to Planned Parenthood in Texas. The agency recently lost funding from Medicaid. Max needed a tax deduction and thought he might be able to get a clinic named after him.

Planned Parenthood refused the donation.  Based on some of the things Max has said about women, abortion, and specifically about Planned Parenthood, it is no wonder.

In July 2011, Max tweeted, "Planned Parenthood would be cooler if it was a giant flight of stairs, w/someone pushing girls down, like a water park slide." This is not the only nasty thing Max has written but it is the only one I am willing to post on our site.

Have you read anything written by Tucker Max?

Do you think Planned Parenthood was right to refuse his donation?  

Do you think maybe Planned Parenthood should take the donation and make a statement that they will turn something negative into something positive?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
