Normally I don’t talk much about idiots (male people) but I thought I’d share this little story with you all:
A couple of months ago Chonky advised me that one of the *feminists* at faux-gressive dudebro site, Democraticunderground dot com, was again doing battle with said faux-gressive dudebros and suggested that I break my promise to myself never to return to that dump in order that I might catch a sister‘s back.
I don’t remember now what the issue was (rape culture does too exist, or some such) but having been familiar with this woman for a number of years, we could see that she had grown quite a lot in her feminism. So Sargasso Sea’s semi-identical cousin, Feldspar, donned her hip-highs and waded back into the muck of malestream politics.
And although Feldspar claims to have more patience for stupid dude talk than her radical cousin, even she could barely handle the insipid level of what passes as “argument” or “debate” so she really only made an appearance when absolutely necessary. But, yesterday this woman (we’ll call her Blackjack) announced that she was relinquishing her position as host of the Feminist group and leaving the site all together. Many pleaded with her to stay, many understood her frustration because they were struggling themselves, but only Feldspar actively encouraged her to pack her shit and GO, move on, you’re too big for this now, there’s another world waiting for you! A world of opportunity and adventure in the dude-free colonies!
Also, just to mention, this Feminist group is lumped in under the banner of “Gender and Orientation” so that it is in the fine company of the LGBTQAWTFBBQ Group and the oh, so under-represented minority class, “Men’s Group”. You heard me right; one guess as to who feels like it’s well within their rights to come to Feminist space to educate the “ladies” about Feminism and then demand to be educated as to why “ladies” is not acceptable in Feminist space?
