Îmi pare rău să dezumflu aşteptările ridicate de un titlu aşa promiţător, dar F înseamnă Femei şi C-ul e de natură să anuleze optimismul F-ului renegociat — măcar femei, dacă nu fotbal — pentru că acestea sînt femei Conservatoare care şi-au făcut un renume în blogosfera mai aglomerată ca autobuzul 368 pe ruta Piaţa Romană – Drumul Taberei, parcursă non-stop şi volens nolens de călători nominal pe scări dar practic levitînd cu mult în afara scărilor, ca nişte fakiri timizi capabili să arate de ce sînt în stare numai într-un pachet uman atîrnat în două degete de o bară unsuroasă şi în curs de deşurubare.
I don’t need equal rights….I’m already equal. I don’t need somebody telling me something that’s already a fact. All these women like Gloria Steinem, „Oh, we made it happen for you!” You didn’t make it happen for me. That whole movement…is rooted in Marxist-Leninist propaganda….I’m not a feminist, I’m an anti-feminist. I think it has hurt women enormously.
Look, there are websites out there that are solely devoted to me, that photoshop me in sexual positions with senior Bush administration officials. You have a limited amount of energy each day and this is what these people do with their energy each day…it’s frightening.
I really regret that I got out. Partly because I didn’t like all the pressure. At that point in my life, I didn’t feel like I knew enough to deserve that many people reading what I wrote…and the relationship I was in at the time, my ex, he didn’t like it because I spent so much time on it. He thought it was „creepy.” A lot of people don’t understand why anyone would read blogs. They think it’s voyeurism, they think it’s creepy….My sister doesn’t read it. She thinks it’s „creepy.” …Plus, I was getting a lot of hate mail and some of it was borderline bad stalker material.
Well, they’re [feminist blogs] some of the ones that are the most hateful. If you look at the language that’s used on those…it’s just incredibly base. It’s this whole feminist thing where it’s empowering to use foul language, to do the lowcut shirts, and act sleazy — and I don’t just mean that just sexually, I mean intellectually as well…
I think that the criticism towards women is different. You’re right, I don’t know that there is any more, but it’s more harsh and like you said, vulgar and sexualized. I don’t think men get that at all….
„Soon, the conservative death march will come to an and. God willing. Stop writing, you amateur little prig. Stay in the kitchen where the Baptists think you belong. Please. Stop writing, because you suck.”
I tired a long time ago of these debates about gender and the blogosphere and the white man keeping female bloggers down. Why can’t we break into the boys’ club? Wah, wah, wah! Well, maybe it’s because you’ve become such a tired bore, beating your victim drum all the time.
I had tons of people email me and tell me they were going to come to my home. They posted my private phone number and I had dozens of people calling and leaving crude messages. …Yeah, it was one of those things where you think about your family, you think about your safety, and you do what you have to do. But, does it stop you? No.
Vechiul 368 pe motorină a devenit eolian, are capăt de linie în Utopia şi e ticsit cu toate speciile de ultra-progresişti şi liber-schimbişti. Două lucruri au rămas neschimbate. Gradul de înghesuială dă cota valorii şi şoferul ştie mai bine. Cine contestă public mijloacele de transport în comun ale gîndirii se poate aştepta la suspendarea calităţii de om. De aceea, insistenţa FC Blogging de a juca după capul propriu merită respect şi aduce noi fani.
