Schwarzenegger Lambasted Over Sexist Joke

California Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER has been branded a sexist again - after mocking pre-menstrual stress during a shocking live radio interview.

The actor-turned-politician sparked outrage last year (04) when he called his Democrat rivals "girlie men".

And he fuelled his reputation as a misogynist last night (24APR05) when he told outspoken DJ HOWARD STERN he wanted to remove the moon, to prevent the mood swings women suffer before their monthly periods.

Schwarzenegger explained, "If we get rid of the moon, women, whose menstrual cycles are governed by the moon, will not get PMS. They will stop bitching and whining."

DAWN GIBSON, a horrified listener of the show, complains, "He is appealing to the lowest common denominator."

I'm sorry, but I'm amazed that anyone could be a 'horrified listener' of the Howard Stern show, simply because of a comment made by schwarzenegger. Considering the particular show in question, anyone easily offended by sexist jokes is on the wrong channel. Anyone tuning in to the Howard Stern show should expect a dialoge that makes Arnold's comments pale in comparison. Regardless who he is, his comments are right in line with the tone of the entertainment you would expect on that show.If you're offended, change the station~
