this particular subject has really bugged me. i try to let it go but it gets under my skin. there's a 'conversation' going on over a fred's- and no i am not going to link to it because it is not my intention to fan flames over there- and there have been scorched earth 'debates' at quite a few other 'progressive' sites over the past few weeks. folks- i don't know what to tell ya. i really have no idea why the subjects of race and gender are still such big freaking deals in this country. it seems like a no brainer to me. there is no reason to be having heated fights over the use of misogynistic words and racist words on the left. none. there is no place for that kind of thinking on the left- but here we are embracing the regressive tactics of the right. instantly becoming defensive and then calling names- sounds like campaign slogans for mccain- not clinton. but here we are.
as i have been reading around lately- i am a google reader maniac- the biggest culprits i have found- so called feminst blogs; so called progressive group blogs with men and women both throwing misogynistic barbs at each other- basically folks who are allegedly enlightened. it makes you look ignorant. i have no idea why the left decided it was a good idea to get down in the mud and start slinging- but one thing is certain- we are slinging it at each other. folks- cut it out. seriously. it doesn't really matter which democrat gets the nomination in the grander scheme of things. you are making divisions in a party when we need to be standing together against the corporate neo cons with their fortune 500 armies. while we are screaming at each other about who called who a 'c**t' or a 'd**k'- the FDNY is being trained to spy on folks while they work. so let's all take a deep breath and pull our heads out of our asses and stop fighting each other about who has the 'bigger set' or whether clinton will beat obama. as long as mccain doesn't win- who the fuck really cares?
at the end of the day- it doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman- we are all people. the only parts on us that are different- are not the major ones. we all have a brain and a heart- we can survive without the sex organs. let's move on.
