Saturday Night Live while trying to be funny has provided us in the past (probably unintentionally) with poignant commentary about women and current society. This weekend’s Saturday Night Live did it again with their skit, The New Boyfriend Talk Show. (It’s only available on Hulu):
There’s so much in this skit that lasts just a few minutes. There’s everything from the kid wondering if the “new boyfriend” is going to be his new daddy to how big of a slut his mom is. Just watch it. Everything you can imagine about such a situation is in there. The only thing that is missing is what happens to the son when he gets older. Either he would end up like the biggest stereotypical “nice guy” ever, or he ends up a total misogynist. Perhaps both (in that order). It’s too bad the writers of this skit couldn’t fit that in there.
