It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Attack of the 50FT Vagina!

I was talking with a friend of mine about Gov. Palin last night. We agree she is an excellent choice for McCain for a myriad of reasons.  Among them is the fact that her candidacy keeps the discussion about sexism and misogyny going. Now that the smokescreen of “Hillary Bashing” is no longer available to hide behind (this will be particularly difficult for guys like Alex Castellanos over at CNN who thinks its okay to hate women if you think they’re bitches), the public ought to be able to call the sexism for what it is, but not so fast.  A colleague of mine, a second waver who has no problem calling it like it is, has decided that what has been uncovered with the Palin nomination is not sexism or misogyny. It’s gynophobia; fear of the vagina.

Perhaps deep in their hearts these assholes in the media are afraid of the vagina. Perhaps they have visions of a snaggletoothed beastie clamping down and removing their useless parts, or seeing themselves wetting their pants and impotently wailing like babies for their mommas.

Whatever it is, they just can’t stand it. Personally I think it’s hypocritical for people who out front profess that a woman should be able to “do it all,” but when a woman doing it all…raising a family, having an active career (a powerful one at that), gunning down moose and cooking it, etc they freak out, “SHE SHOULDN’T BE DOING THAT SHE HAS CHILDREN TO RAISE!”

I loathe hypocrites, and they are coming out of the woodwork.  And guess what?  They are all on the Left.  All these fucks who have been talking about women being able to have careers and families, and how "that's okay" (as if it is their purview to grant viability to that decision) now are suddenly concerned about how a woman can be Vice President and raise a child with Down Syndrome.  Last time I checked no one has ever asked how a male President or Vice President is going to balance those things.  It always falls to the women in the end doesn't it?  As well it should.  Let's face it, if men were the ones who got pregnant and had the babies the human race would have vanished from the face of the earth after the first child was born.  The man would tell all his friends how fucked up it was and how much it sucked that no other men would consent to it.

Meanwhile, to their credit, the Republicans are praising the Palins for embracing their daughter and standing behind her, and from what I’ve been hearing and reading they don’t seem to have a problem with this mother of five taking her place in the political realm.  If it is not patently obvious to everyone that the media is completely in the tank for Pampers, and that the Left that is riding the Pampers wave to destruction are nothing more than a bunch of self-serving hypocrites, then I can't help you.  You are either delusional, on drugs, or dead and can't seem to move on to the next level of the celestial plane.

If you thought shit was upside down in the primaries, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Two things at least have remained constant: The MSM remains largely useless, and Obama is still a raging asshole. At least we have that to hang on to through this madness.

Very powerful statement. Wowzers!

It is so completely ironic that it is the Republican party that is standing up to sexism. I feel a 1984 flashback coming on.
