    A shout out to all the arrogant Aussies who claim to know all about racism, to the point they come here and stomp their feet in supremacist glory.

    In the words of Ron Weasley, “How thick can you get?” (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, “The Polyjuice Potion” chapter).

    Well, well, well, how about that? Australian racism doesn’t look so different from the American kind after all! I mean, you’d think – what with Australians so ostensibly color-blind in their racism that they don’t differentiate between light-skinned and dark-skinned nonwhites – that the Australian minstrels wouldn’t have all made themselves as black and woolly haired as possible, no?

    Instead, just like here in America, mockery is directed at the blackest of skin, the woolliest of hair, and nonwhites who aren’t quite so black are simply implicated by their *association* with that blackness.

    My daughter is having twins! I am so excited. We have never had twins in our family before, ————NEVER!

    Oh my god, Kitty. I feel such anxiety at the thought of 2 infants at the same time. Is there at least still some hope that they’re female?

      No, never heard of her before. She left a comment at Learning Feminism, so I clicked the link.

      Hey there AW and Mary Sunshine – fabmatters is my blog. I’m a long time reader, but first time commenter at AROOO. I’ve been around the radfem blogosphere for a while as a pretty quiet lurker, but with more time on my hands at the moment I’ve taken the plunge and started blogging. It’s a little scary, to tell the truth!

    This is something you have got to see and this is across the pond in Germany. Some trans ex British Solider is suing to get breast implants.

      And of course that ugly man equates wanting to play with dolls and wanting to wear panties and a bra as the definition of being a woman. No, you ugly old delusional twit, it means that you were a boy who wanted to play with dolls and wear panties and bras. Fortunately, the wife got away from him before his delusions drove him to become violent. “Bitch, give me your god damn pay check, NOW! I need fake breasts to go along with my fake delusional ass!”

      That’s why he wants a German court to force a company to pay for his breast implants and ultimately his surgery. Do you think companies want to pay into this delusion and feed this mans delusional desires.

    “Where could people get the idea to start raping women in broad daylight?” Mr. Touré asked, in an interview at his home here.

    From this article:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/06/world/africa/06guinea.html?_r=4&ref=world&pagewanted=all

    “people”???

    Were any of those “people” women?
