Can We Not Praise Michelle Obama

Posted by Realist on August 30, 2008 – 3:14 am

…for her feminism without throwing in statements that have long made feminists want to scream when hearing them?

Michelle Obama combines traditional values with progressive ones. Isn’t that the kind of equality women want?

Kind of equality? I didn’t realize that there is more than one kind. Assuming there is though, I want the kind where the phrase “traditional values” is left in the dust. Some of us are more than happy to leave “tradition” behind, thankyouverymuch. It hasn’t exactly done all of us good in the past.

When she referred to “People like Hillary Clinton, who put those 18 million cracks in that glass ceiling, so that our daughters and our sons can dream a little bigger and aim a little higher,” I took it as recognition of what every mother of both daughters and sons understands: that the quest to improve conditions for our daughters sometimes has ignored our sons, and neither should have to suffer at the expense of the other.

Ah…let’s advance the anti-feminist myth that the fight for womens’ rights has come at the expense of the poor men. Nice. I’m sure that’s totally what Michelle meant when she said that.

    Woman, you ain't never lied.

    And for fuck's sake, have you seen that monobrow mutant K-Lo today?!?!?!?! Talk about arrogance & condescension from the fucking PEANUT GALLERY!!!

    Hell no, I'm not gonna go fetch the link, I'm not going to give that ignorant whore the publicity. World O'Crap enjoys playing with her… well, not so much "mind," as she doesn't have one, but, well, that vomit that she calls her "words." Scott or S.Z. will have that beat-down up in a couple of days, if they haven't done it already.

    Anyway, yeah, it's always so nice when teh pundits are kind enough to explain to us wimmenfolks (ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S COMING FROM ‘WOMEN,’ if that actually pertains) HOW “WE” “REALLY” FEEL about A or B or C. And it’s even MORE fucking wonderful when they want to cherry-pick the words that we may or may not have used, so that they can build their own monument to stupid, LISTING US AS THE FUCKING CONTRACTORS.

    But look! McSenile hired a CUNT as his running mate! Oh, I’m gettin’ weak in the knees, somebody CATCH me!

    Don’t know much about this Sarah woman yet, but it will be interesting as to how he behaves towards her from here on. Will probably be highly amusing, in a grotesquely-entertaining kind of way.

    Mmm hmm. We all know that the ovaried all think alike and agree on everything, unlike REAL HUMANS, who actually come in a variety.

    Oh, but of COURSE, honey! If we weren't sheepul, then the MARKETERS and the POLITICIANS couldn't get ahead by STEREOTYPING us.

    It is fascinating, though, that you can't refer to ANY men nowadays, without EVERY man assuming that you're launching on HIM. Yeah, we stereotype them, too, a lot of the time, which is part of the "backlash" when teh neo-fucktards set feminism back 100+ years and Bill Clinton & we HELPED THEM DO IT. But I don't think that very many of us with IQs over 74 actually WANT to belong to teh herd, yet they keep treating us like our uteruses are the only USEFUL parts, and far too many of us DO buy into it. No, not you, not me, not anybody on this blog, but you know how teh soccer moms have become the most important demographic, 'cause they're such reliable consumers.

    I remember the high-water mark, before the soccer moms & self-loathing doyennes sold us all out, right in line with the neo-fucktard agenda. Before "Girls Gone Rufies," right about the same time as the advent of "Married With Children" and Rush Fatfuck Limbaugh.

    I never thought that I'd be looking BACK at it. Silly me, to assume that evolution only went in one direction. And for thinking that Ronnie Ray-Gun was an aberration, that the country would soon "right" itself in the water, that the progress made in the '60s & '70s wouldn't be exceptional events, but stepping-stones to the progress of the future.

    Silly me.

    And people wonder why I'm one of those "bitter old feminists."

    Fuckin'-A right.

    I may have to LOOK back a lot of the time, but I'll never GO back, dammit. And I still don't understand the appeal of the breeder trap to so many women, that they must define themselves by the mayunn & his spawn in their lives. That being a mother is "the most important job."

    And yes, I know that when I do the breeder talk, that some of our co-bloggers might infer that I'm talking about them. I would hope that y'all know me better than that by now.

    Just found this on msnbc:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26469519/

    A Pakistani lawmaker defended a decision by southwestern tribesmen to bury five women alive because they wanted to choose their own husbands, telling stunned members of Parliament this week to spare him their outrage.

    “These are centuries-old traditions and I will continue to defend them,” Israr Ullah Zehri, who represents Baluchistan province, said Saturday. “Only those who indulge in immoral acts should be afraid.”

    Tradition. Ain’t it great?

    Holy fucking ratfuck.

    And they have all of our fucking jobs, and are booming as an economic power nowadays. Well, not the “common” folk, of course, they make fifteen cents a fucking week, but the psycho pricks that we put into their gubmint have WAY the fuck too much influence.

    Sucks to be a woman in this world, sometimes. Of course, not if you’re a “hot” little piece of ass, ’cause they’ll always want to objectify you, so you’ll have SOME “worth,” but the rest of us are just too expendable.

    Evolution (as flawed as it is) has given us more women than men, and of course the bass-ackwards men have to fight that. After all, why in the fuck should the rednecks of the world listen to MOTHER Nature?
