Open Thread 37 “Amnesty”

January 1, 2010

And this from Kitty:

The biggest rotten goose egg on the internet from the year 2009!

When someone compares an assertion, a turn of phrase, description, and/or analogy to being just like or worse than a reality.

For example:

You calling me a racist is just as bad as being lynched.
You calling me a misogynist is just like a rapist raping a woman.
Criticizing internalized misogyny of women is as bad (if not more destructive) as what men do to women.

so on and so on.

    Hey, Dirt, Happy New Year!

    It’s going to be a good year for radical feminist bloggers. It’s so excellent to feel this all starting to pull together.

    Happy New Year, everybody!

    Kitty, if that’s not the rotten goose egg of 2010 as well, I’ll eat my flip flop. Here’s hoping folks give that shit up.

    Four years? Give me a break. I know someone who got three times that much for robbing a Taco Cabana of $8 (without a weapon).

    Why do people find kids attractive? They are KIDS!!!!! What’s wrong, can’t get someone your own age willing to be with you????? NASTY!!
    What’s so nasty about it? Some kids are just really cute and hot.. especially little boys. If you don’t believe me, then turn on the Disney Channel and see how many gorgeous and sexy little kids they have all dressed up and looking GOOD on there. What’s nasty are people who deny that kids are sexual beings and want them to be all pure and try to suppress their right to sexual expression. That’s what’s really nasty.

    Excuse my while I go puke.

    btw, this was one of the comments left on that article.

    “You telling me not to call breastfeeding Mothers names is as bad as Hitler murdering the Jews”
