Defending the Patriarchy -- Code of Conduct

Apparently there has been a bit of a fuss kicked up on the left side of the blogosphere over an ad for The Real Gilligan's Island that was/is running at the Daily Kos site, the premier left wing blog.

Mr. Kos himself, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga (sorry, the accent over the 'u' in Zuniga didn't paste well), has apparently offended some of his readers, and half of the inmates over at the Democratic Underground, with his defense of the ad:
"Apparently, having two women throw pies at each other, wrestle each other in a sexy, lesbianic manner, then having water splashed on their ample, fake bosoms is degrading to women. Or something like that."
It's gotten so bad that even the Right wing bloggers are stepping in to help the poor embattled Kos. Bill, at INDC had this post on the subject, while Pennywit has graciously taken the time to transfer the official "Defender of the Patriarchy" Code of Conduct over to his blog (although any true defender will already have their leather bound edition of the Code sitting in the place of honor next to their copies of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition).

I never thought I'd say this but, keep up the good fight Kos, we're all behind you! (of course several just waiting to enact rule 29 of the code, but still, we're all there).

Hang on a sec. Let me see if I've got this right. Markos "Screw Them" Zuniga said something thoughtless and insensitive … and surprise is the reaction from his fans?

Have these people been living in a cave on Mars or something?
