I’m Baaaaaack!

It took me a few days to recover from those horrible pre-spring break midterms my professors cooked up for us (I love my professors, really, I just wish there weren’t so many tests in one week). But, I’m rested and raring to go. So, a quick wrap up of the news I’ve missed: Read the rest of this entry »

Hillary ≠ Bill

I normally don’t talk like an obnoxious cheerleader, but right now it’s appropriate. Oh. My. God.

On Thursday, Meredith Vieira interviewed Barack Obama and asked him whether or not he will “make the personal issues of other candidates an issue in [his] race.” A decent question (though inane to anyone who has followed the squeaky-clean campaigns that Obama has previously run). The problem was the prelude:

There’s been a lot of discussion lately about the marriage factor and how that will play in the race. Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Newt Gingrich — all married multiple times. Plus, Hillary Clinton has had her marriage troubles as well. [Emphasis added.]

Yes, Hillary has had numerous affairs while her spouse was crippled by a car accident, refused to pay even a tiny amount of alimony despite her multi-million dollar salary, and announced her divorce shortly after Bill was diagnosed with MS. Oh, no, wait, that would be McCain, Giuliani, and Gingrich, respectively. Hillary Clinton’s “marriage troubles” consisted entirely of taking back the man she married despite several affairs. Which proves, at worst, that she trusts her husband too much, and more likely that she loves him despite his flaws and believes that marriage is sacred. Can we have a little less misogyny and a little more truth from NBC, please?

Buy the Dick a Burger

Wonkette has a link to this blog, National Buy Dick Cheney a Hamburger Day. Now, it sounds like a great idea (who wouldn’t want to clog those arteries?) but then you realize that we’re supposed to eat the hamburger, thereby defeating the purpose of sending Cheney to the Captive Quail Hunting Ranch in the Sky. I propose something different. As an expression of our adoration and love for the biggest Dick since Nixon, everyone buy a $5.00 gift certificate for McDonalds (“Home of the golden arterial stents”) and have it delivered to:

Vice President Richard “Mephistopheles” Cheney
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

In the alternative, you could buy him some Jack Daniels and hope he shoots Bush this time. Plus, I hear he’s much nicer when he has a lampshade on his head. He’s certainly easier to look at that way.

Blog Against Sexism (Take 2)

God, I’m stupid. Five minutes after I make my post saying I can’t think of much for Blog Against Sexism Day, I realize I do have something to say. Hegemonic masculinity sucks. For those of you who know what hegemonic masculinity is (it might be limited to rhetoric students, I’m not sure), you can skip this post. If not, more information follows the jump Read the rest of this entry »

Blog Against Sexism

Well, there’s a couple hours left in the day, so I figured I ought to try to participate in Blog Against Sexism Day. Since I’m not entirely sure what to write about (“sexism is bad” should be a “duh!” thing, and Feministing, Pandagon, et al. do a better job than I could ever do disproving the myth that sexism is gone), here’s a tribute to my parents (and assorted family members), who made me the male feminist I am today.

Christians Are Hypocrites

Well, at least these ones are. Either that or they all lost contact lenses.

10 Commandments Violation

No, they’re hypocrites.

P.S. If you don’t get it, read the second one.

A la Shakespeare’s Sister.
