Posted At Feministe: Humor, Rhetoric, And Power

Snippet of this post: Lots of discussion in blogtopia recently concerning humor. Left-wing bloggers seem split on whether the New Yorker Obama fist-bump afro black-power muslim flag-burning cover is delicious satire of delusional far-right-wing wackaloon assholes versus dangerous fodder for delusional far-right-wing wackaloon assholes. There have also been differing views on whether it is appropriate …

Posted At Feministe: Foul Festering Rot At The Heart Of America

Snippet of this new post: There is a foul festering rotten core at the heart of the American polity. This core is comprised of pure undiluted hatred: for women, for anyone of non-European origins, for foreigners, for non-Christians, for “intellectual elites”, for pretty much everyone. This core has its roots in American slavery and has …

Posted At Feministe: Gender Inequity In Science: Why Legal Remedies Are Grossly Inadequate

Snippet of this post: When I was poking around at the Protein Wisdom right-wing wackaloon treehouse seeing what they had to say about my fisking of the NY Times piece on Title IX and science, I stumbled upon a species of apologist argument that I would like to address generically. The basic idea is that …

Posted At Feministe: Blogging, Rhetoric, And Audiences

Snippet (actually the whole text) of post: I think I have realized why some people–almost all dudes, as far as I can tell–are not enjoying my guest blogging and feel compelled to let me know that I am “doing it wrong” and that I am “not convincing”. Here’s the dealio: you are very confused about …

Posted At Feministe: Sinister Female Conspiracy At Heart Of Major Scientific Society

Here is a snippet of my next Feministe post: I was just checking out the program for the 2008 annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, one of the largest scientific societies in the world, with almost 30,000 members. I’m looking at the list of four Presidential Special Lecturers, and I notice something that indicates …

Posted At Feministe: Teh Laydeez Jus Don Liek Teh Scienz

Here is a taste of my second substantive post at Feministe: The New York Times just published a piece on the potential for application of Title IX gender equity legislation to academic science. Before getting into the details of that particular horrid excuse for journalism, I just want to say a few words in general …

Posted at Feministe: Wackaloon Male Feminist Sex Criminal

Here is a taste of my first substantive post at Feministe: [W]hat the fuck is up with men calling themselves feminists? I don’t call myself a feminist, because it’s not my call whether I am or not. It’s women’s call. I try not to be a fucking misogynist asshole and do what I can to …

Barack Obama Is Pissing Me The Fuck Off

What’s the fucking dealio with Obama? He has been selling himself as a different kind of politician, as someone who stands on principle. Well, he has recently been careening sharply to the right on a number of issues that are really fucking important to me: the motherfucking United States Constitution and women’s right to control …

Why Can’t The ‘O’ Man Ever Shut The Fuck Up?

Field Negro tipped me off to the latest fake-ass hullabaloo over some dumb-fuck “patriotism” bullshit that Obama has “taken a position on”. Apparently a black singer who was selected to sing the national anthem at some cheesy fucking mayor’s event in Colorado switched the words to something known as the black national anthem. And just …
