....they believe they are furthering women's rights by cluck clucking their tongues at women who "don't do feminism how it SHOULD and NEEDS to be done".

I don't much care what they say. But they are sure bemoaning the state of DU and calling out posters by name. Also quite a big hope hoops grave dance in ATA, he was apparently back under a pseudonym. You can see they target and wage war on people, then rejoice at the banning.

9. And frivolous alerting, oh no, oh my!



Uh, yeah, and about that.... did you hear, a funny thing happened on the way to the laundromat:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=profile&uid=302058&sub=trans

Personally, I've only sent one alert in the past 2 weeks -the post got hidden- and it wasn't ANY of the ones they're complaining about over there.

But given the fact I've had some of the most ridiculous alerts in the DU universe thrown at me (like for saying "iverglas", or for saying I don't think "objectification theory" is a hard scientific concept, for instance) I find the complaints around "obsessive alerting" a little bit methinks-someone-doth-protest-too-much funny.

For those times when you're just not done tearing a strip off of the damn menfolk, alerts be damned!

I've sent i think...1? maybe 2? in a month. I could count on one hand all the alerts I've ever sent. It really should, by all rights, much more than that with the amount of personal attacks slung around. But, that's just not the sort of guy I am, I guess. Is that benevolent sexism? I expect I've gotten a lot of alerts in the past...and a few hides.

13. Rules are for you and not for meeeeee!

I'm seeing a lot of that, lately.

Apparently the fight against nekkid booberz and the dudebro gaze is so vital that all rules can be tossed out the window in pursuit of "the greater good". Even while demanding that the rules be strenuously applied to the bad peoplez, including inventing rules that don't actually exist.

Hell, if people want admin to be tougher on zombies and socks, I'm all for it. I was for it before they were. NO ONE is bigger on that idea.

But let's not play the game of "person H came back and everyone knew and no one did anything about it" (particularly if it's not true) while simultaneously, knowingly, deliberately covering for person(s) S,F,I,E etc. who return with distressing regularity over from their blog(s) after being banned so many times for bigotry, etc.

I've seen several thinly veiled calls for MY banning in recent days, which is funny, because honestly while I may strenuously piss some people off with my opinions (namely, that pictures of naked consenting adults don't hurt anyone, and "Feminism" to me means equal rights and reproductive freedom, not Burqas and censorship) I really do -I think- a fairly decent job of following the rules of this place, and I don't fly off with direct personal attacks and insults unlike some members cough cough. Closest I come, I think, is maybe occasionally calling some people on their post-modern sentence structure. I plead guilty on that.

But shit, even my transparency page is relatively clean, although my alerty friends did get one the other day, first one in a while. (Congratulations, my friend! )

16. I think ol' Skinner is feeling up to his overalls in alligators.

Tough to drain a swamp under those conditions.

He's basically getting lectured and finger-wagged on his own website, over there in ATA; the gist of it being that the ever pressing quest to "fix" the TOS basically amounts to the old demand that all of DU accept a certain narrow definition of what constitutes, of course, "misogyny" and "sexism":

primarily meaning anyone who uses a word off "the list" (except the permanently exempt, who can say whatever they want, just becuzzzz) anyone who expresses appreciation for the human body, anyone who doesn't agree that naked pictures of consenting adults are TEH MOST WORSTEST OPPRESSION EVAH!!!, or anyone who disagrees with the self-appointed "educators" and ideological gatekeepers on, basically, anything...

No surprise, of course.

But given recent events, I'm thinking of sending this place another donation. No gig is worth putting up with some of this crap, I'd suspect.

33. I may have to check it out, since there were two different sets of episodes. The FOX ones are the

ones I remember, although they were running them on IFC when I watched 'em. Some of that stuff is pretty funny. I remember there's some episode with Warren and a video camera and he's got a bottle of vodka and he's wearing a diaper... going "Baby wants to breast-feed!"... I think my wife and I almost died when we saw that.

Archer, though.. I honestly think that's the funniest thing on tv right now. Far and away. Watch the series from the beginning if you can. It's hysterical. The writing is genius.

They've finally said wearing a burka is better than wearing a bikini.

I'm glad they're just being honest now, anyway. Only a scant matter of time before they are quoting Pat Robertson and Phylis Shaflay as the rational tenants of the otherwise decadent Western Culture.

Considering we're all such witches in HOF, why care what we say? You obviously don't understand or care to understand what you read, so why bother? What is it you find so fascinating about us? Aren't most of you married? I would think your days of chasing around the playground and shouting "girl germs" would be over. Can't we just agree to all ignore each other and let things be? You do your thing and we'll do ours, and never the twain shall meet. Enjoy you loved ones at home and the people you actually like on DU, rather than sowing discord day after day with women you don't even know. It seems so petty.

28. That thread is about GD

Not this group. One of the links is to a call out of a HOF member. I don't see the parallel. I can see by your remark, "as usual you're prominently providing back up" that you often poke around HOF, whereas I have very little awareness of your own posting habits. So is your point that as long as we talk about sexism or anything on this site you will feel personally aggrieved? Why?
What's the fascination with a separate group that you don't even have to read about? I happened to look in here for the first time in a couple of weeks. It appears members here make a daily habit of surveying HOF.

My "lecture" was a suggestion for a cease fire. Quit worrying about what is said in HOF, particularly when it isn't about you or this group.

30. But, but, but...

Whatabout teh menz?!!?

After seeing the utter craziness spouted by even the least overboard of the HOF regulars over the past couple of weeks, I am convinced that their regressive attitudes and utter lunacy in some cases, that their particular brand of feminism has nothing more to do anymore other than sitting behind a keyboard and giving men shit because men. I don't know how such brazen bigotry against such a large group of people counts as liberal, but I suspect that this sort of hate has been masquerading as a progressive agenda for so long that we just see it wrapped in the liberal cloth and I guess as such people think it belongs here.

Can't we just agree to all ignore each other and let things be? Hmm. Indeed, the question of the decade. Sure we can. As to the cease fire agreement, I'd kinda thought we'd had. Now that Bane's calling for a cease fire that already technically exists, I can say with honesty that there is no interest in HOF for keeping themselves to themselves.

Moreover, would I want to just ignore them?

Not after seeing the goings on these past couple of weeks. This kind of craziness requires an opposition, at least for my part.

The only "hobby" anyone here is guilty of- and I plead to it myself- is being unable to just remain silent and not get dragged into it when the same group of people who have been starting fights on the same silly subjects for 10+ years; be they "someone used the word b****" or this week's crusade against smut, backed up by "science" from religious right think tanks--- do what they always do... instead of feeding the drama.
