    Congratulations Rey Fox!

    For June, maureenbrian, for consistent excellence in general.

  2. says

    Congrats, Rey!

    Nominating:

    Anri, for long term heavy lifting, coolness under fire and a delicious wit. Example.

    JAL (Just A Lurker), who I have watched grow from a timid lurker to a ferocious advocate with a flair for stomping arseholes. Example.

    Maureen Brian, for long term eloquent insight. Example.

  3. otrame says

    Congrats, Rey Fox. Well deserved.

    Maureen Brian, of course. Read the link in #2.

  4. chigau (間違っていない) says

    Congratulations Rey Fox.
    Maureen Brain for the next Molly.

  5. Gnumann, quisling of the MRA nation says

    As all know, I got no agency of my own. I’m just a mindless drone of the militant radfem reasonable humanist agenda. So my lack of free willies compels me to omnom Maureen Brian.

    Of course, if I wasn’t a mindless drone I would do this anyways. And send big fuzzy grats to Rey Fox.

  6. Dhorvath, OM says

    Ooh, Rey Fox, well deserved. It would be a little over the top for me to suggest I read enough in June to nominate, but I did read that essay from maureenbrian before today and it was excellent.

    It sounds as though Maureen Brian is going to get the nod, but I’d like to put Louis out there for consideration, on the grounds that his righteous indignation, fresh from the chip shop and wrapped in yesterday’s Guardian for that uniquely British flavour, makes me laugh until I cry. That guy can write a little bit.

  8. ChasCPeterson says

    That guy can write a little bit.

    I want a cookie for almost completely resisting that straightline.

  9. 'Tis Himself says

    Congratulations to Rey Fox for an overdue mollification.

    To show my independence from The Horde and to create Deep Rifts™, I nominate Maureen Brian for showing us how it’s done (whatever “it” is, she knows how to do it).

  10. Tethys says

    Yay for Rey Fox! I agree that he is long overdue.

    That comment by Maureen Brian was OM worthy, so I will joinzz the hivezzzzz mindzzzzzz and add one more upvote.

  11. Louis says

    Maureen Brian is definitely my choice with Just_A_Lurker a close second this month.

    Louis

    P.S. Thanks Interrobang, I’ve already been done!

    P.P.S. {Passes the cookie for Chas to someone who can hand it to him.} Impressive work.

  12. ludicrous says

    Yeeeessss, Maureen Brian’s eloquent message needs wide dissemination, perhaps a rotating sidebar. I would award, if I could, a group Molly to all the other women of FTB. I hope these recent weeks will be seen as a watershed in clearing the misogyny out of this place.

  13. Mattir says

    So I guess nominating recently departed bloggers would be a bad thing?

    OK, MaureenBrian – that was an excellent post…

  14. Louis says

    Mattir,

    Well obviously everyone wants to nominate Thunderf00t but we’re all too scared to do so. Or too in thrall to PZ. Or too unoriginal to do anything but identify with the Hive Mind of Pharyngula Comments. Or too White Knight-y And Wanting To Fuck Feminists to risk annoying the Skepchick Feminazis that rule the universe with their oppressive Vaginal Hegemony and Gynocratic Fascism. Or too scared of creating Deeeeeep Rifts™. Or too Leftist. Or too Socialist. Or too Marxist. Or too confused about the difference between online activism and real life activism. Or too invested in something. Or too sex phobic. Or too misandrist. Or too…

    I’m sure I’ve missed a few.

    Louis

  15. fastlane says

    Louis, can we really fuck with the mansplainers and go with All of the Above!? =)

    Oh, and twelfth hundredth on Maureen for the Molly of the month.

  16. Crip Dyke, MQ, Right Reverend Feminist FuckToy of Death & Her Handmaiden says

    Rey Fox is awesome – this is long deserved.

    I’ll try to think of a good way to use my votes soon. It’s been hard to be on here consistently with the move.

  17. aweraw says

    Ahh yes… the part where she dichotomized everything with a “you’re either with us or against us” statement, and promptly lumped me into the “against us” (or more accurately, insinuated that I’ve chosen to support and defend those who seek to molest women) for having the termerity to suggest that people get out and lock horns with the culture they seek to subvert.

    … and no one called her on it. There was no reason to cast that emotionally charged aspersion against me. My suggestions were misguided, and I accept that; however, I don’t accept that I’m a person who has any tolerance, let alone provides support for those who seek to molest women, in spite of Maureen Brian’s claim that it was obvious that I do.

    IMO, with the caveat that I don’t strictly agree with the classification, it’s this kind of behavioral blind spot that gets the commenters here labeled baboons and bullies.

    So, who are you voting for, then?

    le sentiment qu’il mutuelle, ma chérie

    #33

    Why not throw my hat in for Maureen too then.. in total, it was a good comment; I just think her classification was pretty ugly and baseless.

    #34

    Poor bubby.

  20. Rey Fox says

    With my newly bestowed Molly privileges, I declare aweraw a cupcake. And I decree Maureen Brian to be the new Molly, now hasten to make it so!

  21. Aquaria says

    Rey:

    Yes, you. Congratulations!

    I think I voted for you for something like 7 months, and then when the post showed up to vote for you last time, I missed it!

    Sorry about that.

  22. Hekuni Cat, MQG says

    Congratulations, Rey Fox!

    Another vote for Maureen Brian for June’s Molly.

  23. Aquaria says

    Is this the thread where I ask to return my Molly?

    I feel like I can’t say anything here anymore without it being attacked or belittled, so I don’t see any use in having the thing anymore.

  24. echidna says

    Aquaria,

    I feel like I can’t say anything here anymore without it being attacked or belittled, so I don’t see any use in having the thing anymore.

    Oh, that is sad. *virtual hug*

  25. echidna says

    Congrats Rey! And it’s pointless not to vote for Maureen, with that ripper post.

  26. says

    Aquaria:

    I feel like I can’t say anything here anymore without it being attacked or belittled, so I don’t see any use in having the thing anymore.

    That’s a couple of people and they don’t speak for the rest of us. Please, Aquaria, you deserve that Molly.

  27. Cipher, OM, Fighting Fucktoy says

    On the Maureenbrian train.

    Aquaria, can I attack your attempt to return your Molly, or would that not help? (Kidding. I just think you deserve the Molly and should keep it.)

  28. John Morales says

    Due grats to Rey Fox.

    Maureen is of course worthy, but I’ll put a shout-out for myeck waters who’s not overly active but generally makes good pointed comments.

  29. John Morales says

    Aquaria, returning it is near futile.

    You were awarded it, so you merited it, and that stands.

    (Best you can do is what Sven did)

  30. maureenbrian says

    aweraw,

    How many times do I have to do this? I have already explained this to your little friend over at Butterflies & Wheels.

    The original post was addressed to “aidanwilliams and other apologists”. I don’t think you are an apologist. Do you think you are an apologist? Or do you just want everything to be about you?

    ———

    The rest of “yous guys” – I am very flattered and keep blushing.

  31. says

    Rey Fox

    Really?

    Me?

    Yaaay!
    Just a quick observation, though. I’ve noticed that I never see you and Batman in the same comment thread at the same time. Hmmmm.

  32. aweraw says

    That ‘aidanwilliams’ account was me, before I changed what wordpress displays as my username.

  33. Cipher, OM, Fighting Fucktoy says

    for having the termerity to suggest that people get out and lock horns with the culture they seek to subvert.

    Liar. Take it to TZT.

    Is this the thread where I ask to return my Molly?

    No. You’ve always been one of my favorite commenters, and you say things I would want to, and you say things that need to be said.

    Whatever was said that deserves a Molly, it was you that said it. Fuck the dissenters and belittlers, although I know it hurts sometimes. I, and many others, always welcome you, anytime.

  35. Cipher, OM, Fighting Fucktoy says

    Rey Fox!
    I forgot to congratulate you.
    *Confetti with glitter and sprinkles!*
    YAY REY FOX! CONGRATULATIONS!

  36. John Phillips, FCD says

    I had somehow missed the post Caine linked to in #2, possibly because I tend to only visit bi-weekly nowadays, time, short of it and all that. But I had already noted other posts by her equally deserving of a nomination and had made a note to remember her when it next came molly time post. So, the one in Caine’s link is just the icing on the cake and, hive mind and echo chamber like, I find I have no resistance to echoing the nomination for Maureen Brian.

  37. says

    I don’t get to vote for Mollies often because I don’t know half of y’all half as well as you deserve (heh), but I can only second the vote for maureenbrian for the same reason.

    But there’s also Ing: Gerund of Death, who’s posted some awesome stuff in the “I got email” thread (comments page 2, #15 and below).

  38. chigau (違う) says

    It just occurred to me that since We™ are On Our Own, We™ can still vote for and award Mollies.
