You know what is really “dehumanizing”, Ms. Paltrow?

Before you get all cranky, please be advised this commentary was not written by Col. West, but by his female Editor-in-Chief, just in case you were getting ready to play the sexist card. Thank you.

Oh, how I wish actresses would just stick to what they do best: looking pretty and pretending to be other people.

Instead we have to endure the type of cringe-worthy pontification that emerges from their smudge-free lips — such as the latest comment from Gwyneth Paltrow.

She has a new “lifestyle brand” called Goop which I think accurately describes both the texture and value of her words. While appearing at the techy Code Conference in California to promote Goop, she likened mean twitter comments to the suffering of war, saying, “You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing. It’s almost like, how in war, you go through this bloody dehumanizing thing…”

Fortunately, Ms. Paltrow’s words are not accepted sympathetically by all, and those who have actually suffered through “this bloody, dehumanizing thing” called war can set her straight on reality.
