Yeah, antiprincess, whatever. You’re sitting there, commiserating with a sexist guy. Your site is basically mocking Twisty. Exactly how are you anything but a cheerleader for sexist assholes?
oh, so look who's mocking.
See, what this whole thread exploded over was Maiken's suggestion that castrating future rapists might not be such a good idea, even in jest.
I gotta say - if agreeing with Maiken is wrong, I don't want to be right.
hand me my pompoms.
on that note, I open the floor for all-a-y'all - former first-stringers, saddle-shoe-rejecters and frustrated pepsquad rejects alike, to compose your own cheers as appropriate. or inappropriate. whatev.
Be! Creative! Bee-Ee Creative! Whoo!
and I say this, even having suffered through my own fair share of non-consensual sex, at varying levels of brutality, just like most of the rest of us.
for one thing, I don't know if Twisty really feels so mocked. I think she thinks I'm pretty irrelevant, kind of like a gnat trying to bite an elephant.
further, I mock lots of other people, not just Twisty.
No, wait... can't say that, rubber is a term for a condom and that doesn't go with castration. Penis= bad, no penis= good. Isn't that what it's really all about? Must remember to adhere to the doctorines.
Now, if someone rapes a child,or shows strong sexual tendencies toward children (child porn, etc)my thinking would be rawther different. Castrate and emasculate, imo. I have no tender thoughts toward the rights of those folk.
but then that's just my opinion, and worth what you paid for it.
who knows but some tortured souls out there might consider relief from demonic urges a...blessing? and be...grateful?
and after the gavel falls and justice has been served, maybe chemical castration would be a cost-effective and more-or-less permanent solution to recidivism. I haven't really looked into it - I probably should.
but I'm not a fan of punishing crimes before they happen. I just can't handle that.
well, that depends on who you talk to. such is what makes the feminist blogosphere go round.
antip, what are you DOING! have you gone MAD, woman!...
(look, she said it again! "Nee! Nee!")
oh well, shit, batten down the hatches...
took one fifteen second look and that was...
well, i will say that this comment by Edith made me laugh out loud:
I’m glad I kept reading this till I got to the Mary Daly, because I was getting a bit depressed with all this anti-castration talk.
Personally, I'm all for castration as long as some of those fine folks do it themselves. Especially Twisty. Give her something a little more hands-on to do for once, you know...
and maybe she'd finally feel sated enough to stop snapping photos of unknowing womens' asses for other women to make fun of, for a little while.
Get out. This person does this? Does she claim to be an adult?
In general, neither am I, but there is no warm place in my heart for pedophiles. None. I have trouble seeing them as human beings.
but I imagine it would be difficult to pick out potential criminals from the general population of human beings before they have actually, um, crimed.
Rootie, with all due respect, I don't think one's sense of masculinity is necessarily an association with pedophilia. That kind of clouds the issue and it would not do anything to modify or curtail pathological behavior. Maybe I'm nitpicking over words unnecessarily...
People can commit sexual assaults even without using their genitalia...
The more you know, because knowledge is power.
Criminy on a stick, do they get it that the whole chop his balls and dick off with a rusty spoon thing furthers the idea that rape is really about the sex?
Feck that. I guess i'd prefer a response to sexual violence that was actually about preventing further assaults rather than a feel good johnson smashing. i enjoy a ritual genital mutilation as much as the next fellow, but sometimes i find that a orgiastic festival of Rod-Related-Retaliation just doesn't solve the problem of rape.
/pardon the puns, bad alliteration, and snark. this stuff really bugs me, because it's twisty at her most patriarchal. her construction of power is literally riding on a fruedian castration motif. hello?
rootie: see here.
Kim has the link to the original there; i'm not gonna link the 'stain again myself. not today.
same as it ever was.
I can't tell whether her speculation that my animosity is due to my being "one of those BDSM gals" who's all cranky 'cause she mocked my "lifestyle" (my lifestyle is probably even more boring than yours these days, T), comes from disingenuousness or splendid indifference. clearly she'd like to communicate the latter.
No, Twisty, for the record, I think your sadism beats mine any day; it's just that in my book, it really ought to be consensual, and you don't provide a safeword.
Oh, yeah, and you've been thoroughly vile in your genteel little way. and no, we're not the only ones to have noticed it by now, really.
Mostly, I really loathe pathological narcissists.
Other than that, though, you're golden. Nice food writing.
The Jane Hathaway act is getting a bit old, though.
you are such a throat pube.
don't be such a throat pube!
she used to be cool, until she turned into a total throat pube.
share and enjoy.
I noticed that too, veronica.
I was really unsure how to respond to that.
and we all know what a slippery slope--
shit, more imagery.
i think i should sue. or Mary Sue. or something.
otherwise, seems like a perfectly sensible idea.
anyone for tacos and Koolaid?
o, look, a white rabbit! o, wait, remember what happened the last time i followed him? never mind.
Oh, I'm not saying it does,I'm just saying I'd be willing to do massive and permanent bodily harm to pedophiles. Emotional response.
Yeah. I have poor self control. I admit it.
Now I'm all pissed and nowehere to go because I stumbled upon this load of horse manure.
What's a gal to do.
Maybe I should make up some Harbls instead. Mine will never compare to Kim's, though.
know who Spinning Liz obviously is?
stupid fucktards can't even be bothered to
Response to Spinning Liz:
Not only do you appear to be OT here but you’re also jumping to conclusions. Perhaps you might wish to read the web-site to which you’ve linked a bit more carefully. Not only are you incorrect in your assumption that the beheficiary of this calendar has stripped for the calendar but none of the rest of the women the calendar have done so either. They are all professional woman who have gathered together to help a friend using the tool we all know works best: sex sells.
You admit that you are bitter and angry; that comes across quite quickly. Well, you’ve now made at least 12 other women angry…at you. Add me to that number. Just because you have a serious, life-threatening disease does not give you license to bad mouth and abuse others who are doing something they believe in to help a friend. This is a woman who has insurance which will not pay for her medication, who is working hard throughout her illness to the best of her abilities. She is maintaining a positive attitude and is a wonderful role model of those who suffer.
Bitter really won’t get you far nor gain you a whole lot of friends. It just sounds to me like you’re upset that no one is putting together a similar fund-raiser for you.
But of course, I could be wrong.
&^@*$&^!^# oh NO THEY
fucking YEAH RIGHT they SHOULD be holding a...
i, i, i, i'm just spitting here.
well, i took a couple of deep breaths instead of posting what i was going to, and read on. a couple of them do post there. including the vile pony, who does a decent impression of a human being when her eject button isn't being pushed.
she's bankrupt, at stage IV of aggressive lymphoma, and uninsured. and now apparently has to sell her beloved house.
i cannot fucking BELIEVE someone had the -fucking- gall to tell her...sput, sput.
so anyway i did have the thought that actually, yeah okay, a fundraiser without stripping then, might be a good idea, at that...
she's already got a fund going i guess, ("Shoe fund"), but goddam, she keeps such a low profile, at least compared to SOME PEOPLE.
"a wonderful role model of those who suffer." what. the FUCK.
besides everything else, i cannot BELIEVE the chutzpah it takes for a healthy person (anyone, really, but) to lecture someone with stage IV cancer about how she -shouldn't be bitter;- what she should -really- be focused on is, well, what is it now? the women who are stripping for their friend's benefit are professionals? it didn't really go where they said it did? it's ZOMG cheesecake and that's all that matters?
a woman with stage IV cancer, that is, who is, unlike Twisty, without insurance, bankrupt, and in the process of having to sell her house.
but, think positive!!!1! BEAMZ
fuckmedead, as BL would say.
or, as RE would say:
"Humans. The other white meat."
fuck, i'm going to bed. for about two hundred years.
She has ranted several times about it.
Word verification: wdfuh.
What da fuh, indeed.
ANd yeah, I am really glad I foudn the Spinning Liz blog. So see? Something good came out of it!
Leafin you Comments!
I admit, I do, I go there every damn day. Much as I get on her ass for all that, how to say -- relentless Smarter Than Thou style of writing, once you pick your way thru it, she is a GOOD writer.
I love her wit, I do -- and I do get down wit much o what she says.
Then she goes and fucks it all up by posting pics of thongs and calling me a "hypocrite" and all.
Still -- the anger I feel THEN keeps me going. I get all riled up and, frankly, I like that -- makes me write, you know?
I'm all over the Comments in the, what the hell is called, Any Excuse to Denigrate Lipstick post. Fightin' the same old Lipstick ain't evil fight.
Another reason I go to IBTP?
I'll be fucked if I'll be **STARSTRUCK** or intimidated by her and her lackeys. I may not get 144 Comments per day and what not, but fuck -- I'll take a backseat to none when it comes to writing.
But basically I'm in a hardcore love/hate thing with her.
You guys, however, I just love.
blushin all pink
that's awfully nice of you to say, Kim. I owe you a coffee or what-you-like.
yeah, I'm a broken record but it's quite true -
twisty:me = mozart:salieri.
I've made my peace with it.
and yeah, like you said, the process of dissent makes me a better writer myself. so it's all good, except when it sux.
so she strings pretty words together. so what.
content matters, too.
Mozart she ain't.
temperament and aesthetics wise i compared her once to Johnathan Swift. but she's not really that, either. Johnathan Ambling, maybe.
Can I get a big round of applause that I was able to resist naming Annabelle and Zuzu Paris and Nicole?
It WAS hard -- I was so tempted.
"Shit, Paris just coughed up a hairball!"
"Nicole, get out of the macaroni!"
"You know, if you’re not a fag you’re doing a damn good imitation of one. Darling."
She's 'insulting' someone by calling them gay! How very mature.
Jesus christ, she's vile.
"I’m supposed to believe men in drag are women. And if you put on a werewolf mask, will you also expect me to believe you’re a werewolf?" (Luckynkl)
'Men in drag??'. I need to go and disinfect my brain.
It's sort of fascinating. On the one hand, TF still has some smitten smart liberals in her corner (the ones i am primarily thinking of at the moment are male, probably in her basic demographic, and thoroughly decent folk); on the other, the rest of her base is, well, people like this.
she reminds me of nothing so much as a certain neocon (male) blogger, with a similar reactionary/clever upper-class urbane sneer and similar oddly divided vibe to his base. different demographic, but similar levels (if not worse) of hatefulness, loopiness, and sheer fuckwittery.
anyway, i hope she's real proud. Viva la Revolución! ¡VIVA!!!
