Yo Axe...I had to go ballistic on that one myself.

OH LOOK, THE MEN DEVIDING US AGAIN! Fucking bullshit....

eh, me love you long time, BD...I think your blog is aces.

belledame222 said...

ah, cheers, Ren, I luvs ya, too.

i'm just finding this hilarious at this point. how loopy can you get? i mean, i've been accused of paranoia and addiction to drama myself, not entirely unfairly; but damn, at least i manage to do it without being twee.

and, Ren? "you missed the metaphorical part."

Renegade Evolution said...

Oh, I am amused, trust me...

But I think I should change the title of my blogroll to "Your Ass is Almost Mine"...what do ya think?

Buzz...ah fuck this, I see a flower than needs slavish servicing...

Emily said...

Hahah, haha. Ha. Well, if nothing else, at least I've been assured that I am, in fact, a member of the reality-based community.

And hello, belledame222. This may be the first time I've commented here, but I've been reading and enjoying your blog for a while now. So, thanks.

oh, hey, welcome, Emily! glad you mentioned, because there's another Emily who comments here and i would've assumed you were her. she. anyway: hi!

KH said...

O Belledame, your kindly rage doth sting! And this is the fable of a serious political movement, or one with functioning critical faculties? And, having barricaded themselves against any threat to their brittle sense of self-certainty, they plan to persuade some wider grown-up audience?

Honestly, is it a little demoralizing even to be known to this kind of person?

P.S. Women!! Do not be selective in your choice of sexual partners!! Have sex with all men who seek it, indiscriminately & on video!! This is our message to you!!

It's MY CLUB and you can't play unless I SAY SO...AND you don't LOOK RIGHT so GO AWAY you freak!

Good Lordy in a Basket, I heard the exact same thing from Scarlett Hardigree in the 5th grade.
SCARLETT? IS THAT YOU??

It would be funny if it weren't so pathetic.

originally I was not going to even dignify it with an answer.

but, you know, we all must stoop to conquer.

or shtup to conquer.

(sorry, went on a mel brooks binge this weekend. all The Producers, all the time.

R. Mildred said...

The funny thing is I think I shall have to write a post about this whole pre-shark-jump-faith feminism Vs. pre-shark-jump-buffy feminism strawman and get my whedon blaming hat on at some point.

except I'm still writing my post for the whole transphobia blowup.

*bursts into tears*

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Sly Civilian said...

whaaa??

Gawd, life is too damn short to write like that. Allegory != beating the English language to death.

At least it's not supposed to.

little light said...

I...uh...
Heavens to Betsy. What kind of nectar are...you know, no. I--

Yeah, I got nothing.
Maybe it's because I lost my agency when I fell in with your sinister, childishly-nicknamed cabal.

Wait--shit--if men are flowers, and women are bees, then I'm...ah, hell, my brain hurts.

antiprincess said...

it's only aggravating if you give a shit.

which, I haven't decided if I do or don't just yet.

Lucy said...

WTF?

There is such a thing as extending a metaphor too far.

Particularly when it's a metaphor that makes no sense in the first place.

Lucy said...

Also - BelleDodo? Ambutt? How old are we now? It's pitiful, frankly. Not to mention the vile attack on Laura, who has more decency and integrity than the rest of them put together.

I despair for the future of feminism if this lot have any influence.

Vanessa said...

Oh...my...god.

This is so childish! Combined with the "tribe that bleeds" "ineffability of women" tripe, this makes them sound like a group of 12 year old moon maidens who really like ponies and Wicca and dot their "i"s with little hearts.

Give me a break.

fastlad said...

Not everyone here may know what a Wendy House is - but all that dainty Bee/Wasp imperialist bollix brought it back to me.

Oh yes. Prepubescent gender exclusion as practiced by militant wee girls in a see through plastic-house-tent. "Away on to your tree hut, boychick, we'll none of your rotten auld germs in here."

Oh the humanity! And who thought to call them Wendy Houses? As if that harmless name could mask their nefarious intent.

LOL I love it. I'm taglining it or sumpin'.

r couldn't get past the claim that bumblebees are fluffy.

little light said...

It's okay, Queer Dewd. You just have to understand that some people don't actually have any experience with b--with anything.
I mean, seriously, now. Ducklings. Can we not at least use bees? Have you met a bee? I know wasps sound scary, and stuff, but...

Anthony Kennerson said...

Oh, but can y'all imagine the reaction if someone on our side had pulled off this nonsense. "Oh, them pro-pornstution sellouts, thry're censoring us!!!"

And what's up with the bees and wasp anthology?? I mean, wasps have every right to pollinate the flowers as the bees do, right?? And what does that make us "pro-porn men"? The lizards???

Oh..and nice touch with privatizing her blog, too....I mean, nothing better for spirited debate than name-calling and bad analogies; then running away from genuine criticism.

Stormcloud??? Barely a cumulus cloud, more like.

Stormcloud made her blog private before I could read what she wrote! Is there a good run-down anywhere of what transpired?

"Typically, everybody projects all and sundry."

typically.

you know. on a virtual community i was on, this saying used to be trotted out on similar occasions:

"If you're walking down the street and someone kicks you, they have a problem. If you're walking down the street and EVERYONE kicks you, -you- have a problem."

an oversimplification, no doubt; and after all, there is such a thing as scapegoating; and, one could also Blame the Street, perhaps with good reason.

all the same. in a case like this. you write two posts basically saying "you're with us or agin' us." a whole bunch of people go, "pfft! excuse ME, Mary" and "hokay, never really would have said so before, but now that you put it that way, i guess I'm agin' you, then."

the only response: "Nobody Understands Me" and "Help Help I'm Being Oppressed."

self-awareness is a good thing.
