In other news, marital rape is still not criminalized in India.
Thank you. And for my part I was peeved at my plumbing problem. It's fixed now but only after over $400.
Block them, they are targeting all of us to scam people into thinking they are not bots.
Certain Fundie groups still feel that way.
To them that means some stranger jumping out of the bushes, never uncle kiddy-diddler who is a deacon in their church.
Probably that is the MOE. (margin of error)
Robyn used to do a regular feature on them.
Put it on his dick.
Maybe he'd get the benefit of the doubt if this wasn't a well ingrained dog whistle.
Same with me. Sometimes it's just short of debilitating. Folks dont understand.
I specifically did not say white men. I said white people. Yes, I am aware there are men (and not only white men) who think of men as the default for human. When you say "people" what they picture in their minds are men -- not men and women. I've met them. I've worked with them. But I did not bring that up because I wasn't trying to make my comment about misogyny but about racism, specifically unconscious racism conditioning. I wasn't slamming white men in particular -- but if you want to be pissed off, go ahead. You won't be the first man I've pissed off. I'm well aware that a certain kind of white man thinks all white women (and maybe all women period -- but I can't say for sure from experience) should be meek and quite and submissive. I don't know if that's you, but I've decided I'm not going to play that game, whatever the consequences might be. You see, I am not that woman. I refuse to be that woman. So if you don't like it -- too bad.
Anyway, it is true that unless a white person was brought up in a multi-racial milieu, chances are when you say the word "American" they think of white people. That needs to change. I'm sorry, but it does.
So, one word caused all this confusion... sorry.
Yup. It is a conscious effort to avoid overtaxing my emotional empathy.
And I totally agree with you on 100% of everything you said, but, in my context, I was bitching about the fact that that is the ONLY negative press coverage of Mitch today... that's his sin... not the no vote, not the 6,000 bills stacked on his desk for 6 years, not any of that - he didn't say "other"... My complaint is racism should not be a convenient cover for other flaws! If there had been 10 stories and 3 of them were about this... hell, I would have probably posted it myself, but when the only negative thing the media can ever say about a R is that they are a racist, it actually hurts our cause and does not help it. One of the problems WE all have on here is we get into a fight much quicker than we get into a conversation to see what the other person means... You thought I was defending a vile maggot and I thought you were a white man hating white person (I had no idea you were a woman, though... I thought your name was a man... sorry for assuming).
Why do I get the impression that whoever made this argument, his experience with sexual variety was how long he would cut off bloodflow to his non-dominant hand pre-wank?
Yeah, marital rape does exist here, but as far as I know it's universally illegal, even if seldom prosecuted.
