That New York Post article is one of the dumbest I've read in a long time. I assume it was written by a 12 year old girl who thinks The Hills is 'so like totally true to life'.]

Every woman wants a bad boy until they get one. That usually cures you. After they've slept with all your friends, your sister and maybe even your mother. Stolen your money, knocked you around a bit for asking what time he's coming home, and mooches around the house all day whilst your stuck at work to pay all the bills, and heaven help you if you have kids, because he's the biggest kid of all and will resent any time you spend with them and will be a lousy father too. And no I've never been in this situation but I have known women who have and they've all ended up regretted the choice they made.

Of course there is always a backlash, but am I expecting too much in getting some kind of intelligent response. Matt obviously doesn't appeal to everyone and sexuality like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but this stupid article is just an insult to my intelligence.

(Deep breathe), I'm OK now. Just wanted to get that off my chest. Thanks for letting me rant (again!) Marcia

That NY Post article was actually offensive. Did you see this line describing Owen Wilson?

"Owen Wilson: slit your wrists sexy."

Thankfully no, I didn't get that far. I agree it was a really offensive and ignorant article on many levels for me. 'Slit your wrists sexy', what does that even mean? Were they high when they wrote this?

Maybe the writer should visit a few shelters for battered women and children, it might give them a less glowing view of 'bad boys'. Marcia

On the obvious level of meaning: Owen was the actor who cut his wrists recently in a suicide attempt. Not so hilarious.

Wow! I completely missed that, it's horrible. Did I miss something? When did attempted suicide become something to joke about? That just makes this whole article even sicker. Marcia

Who hires these writers? What a sick and ignorant human being! Some people have no shame.

I have heard a few rude comments on Matt being picked for this title but this one takes the cake so far. That comment about owen wilson is one of the sickest things i have ever read.

Anyways, thank you for all of your hard work that you put into this site. I am going to be celebrating Thanksgiving on thursday and one of the many things that i am thankful for is the matt damon news column.

Have a good one,
