Well that was over pretty quick…
Have you noticed how many women think they can use the internet to make threats against toddlers, flash their tits, and air their dirty laundry in public, all without repercussions? I have read that women are often afraid to comment on blogs because they do not want to stand up to criticism. However, it seems that there is also the opposite extreme: those women who think that they can say and do anything and no one is supposed to take notice or hold them accountable.
My guess is that these women feel so ineffectual that they do not believe anyone would take them seriously, kind of like when a woman slaps a man, it is seen as funny since she is so “powerless.” On the other side, there is the possibility that these nutjobs have such a sense of entitlement (reinforced by society) that they can get away with saying and doing anything. Luckily, people are catching on to these nutcases and taking action– for example, the professor who threatened Jeff Goldstein’s toddler lost her job. (The whole sad story is here.)
Good for Goldstein for standing up for women’s rights everywhere–maybe women will learn that their actions are not as ineffectual and powerless as they would have others believe. And for those who suffer from a sense of entitlement just because they are women? Maybe a dose of reality will help those women realize what men have always known–freedom and justice requires people to be responsible for their own actions, regardless of gender.
Okay. I don’t know what her point was supposed to be either and how she made the leap from from women acting like asses to Jeff Goldstein standing up for womens’ rights, but I assume that she hadn’t read Goldstein’s latest after his delicate sensibilities were stabilized by a team of doctors and an outpouring of Paypal contributions:
There are a million stories in the naked city-
-Roughly 850,000 of which contain, in one form or another, some reference to cooze.
The National Organization of Women might want to put a hold on that plaque they were planning on giving to Jeff…
(For those not up on their slang)
