Cathy Areu is the feminist publisher of Catalina Magazine – a 5000-subscriber micro magazine supposedly devoted to opposing sexual stereotyping of Hispanic women. But Areu is much more than that.

She recently appeared on FOX’s Tucker Carlson show to talk about a new law in Belgium that criminalizes sexist speech. I suppose if an entire nation can undertake the impossible and irrational action of attempting to criminalize such an ill-defined topic as sexist language and free speech, we should expect that some ladies on the far left – the very far left – might believe in such a divisive prohibition.

Had I not known who Carlson is, I might have concluded that my channel surfing had brought me to some Saturday Night Live knock-off – maybe something produced by a satirical publication. Not so, my friends. Miss Areu is as serious as she is silly.

The case in Belgium involved a citizen who suggested that a female police officer should go do “women’s work.” Without question, that is a boorish and insulting statement, but hardly a crime in any society that values free speech.

Areu suggests that all men who say anything to which any particular woman might take offense are going to commit more serious crimes against women. In Areu’s world, a man who insults a woman is predestined to be a wife beater and rapist. But, if we jail those men the minute they anger a woman with an unkind word, they will come out of the slammer as better people.

In Areu’s world, women should not be objectified unless they are objectified by women. Women using their bodies for income (legal or otherwise) are okay. Women running sexy magazines with scantily clad women are okay. But if men do that, it is not okay. In fact, if a man comments on the beauty or sexiness of those naked ladies, he should be arrested. Of course, it is okay to objectify men – you know, beefcakes. Areu has said as much.

Interestingly, Areu is a stunningly good-looking woman – attractive enough to be one of those models who objectify their physical attributes in those women-run magazines she illogically endorses. In Areu’s mind, however, my compliment is merely a precursor to a life of criminal abuse of women.

If you want a peek into Areu’s mind – which is akin to watching Alice in Wonderland while on LSD (and just for the record, that is a literary assumption on my part) – you need to translate the following response. When asked if charges should be brought against women for making sexist statements against men, Areu said:

“Absolutely not. You know that. Women are the minority even though we are the majority, we are still the minority because white men are in charge … and it’s hard to be a sexist if you cannot put the majority down when you’re still considered the minority.”

The Oxygen TV Network called Areu one of New York City’s most influential women. Having watched Areu in several media interviews, I fear that is more of an insult to New York City than a compliment to Areu.

What is not so funny about Areu is that she has become sort of a Pied Piper-ess for man-hating feminists who see their own inability to cope or succeed as victimization. If Areu were serious about the plight and suffering of women as a class, she would take her campaign to those nations where female oppression is a life and death reality. How about pushing back against all those abortions of unborn girls in China, female circumcision in the Middle East, honor killings in India – and all those other oppressive laws and customs in other parts of the world?

I sincerely hope that all of Areu’s ludicrous comments about American men and women are an act designed to get her some free television time and maybe sell a few more copies of Catalina. I like to think that because if she is serious, I would have to assume that she is non-compos mentis. I must add that I do not come to that conclusion because she is a woman – although I have a feeling she would spin it in that direction.
