I Have Nothing To Add That Others Haven’t Said Better

Re: The Kricfalusi report.

Katie Rice and Robin Byrd did a lot of good (having first endured an unforgivable ordeal), and I’m godsdamned pissed that the world hates women to the degree that it was only logical that Rice retreated from Twitter before the article hit.

ANYway, if you want to know what I think, Spike and Sara McHenry have either neatly paralleled my thoughts, or led me to new thoughts that I wouldn’t have had because I’m not a woman and have never had to put up with this shit.

The world has trained me to expect that my (white, male, straight, cis, wealthy) opinion on anything is of value — which is pretty much the source of much of these problems.

Spam of the day:

Allegra Debt Relief

There are some similarly conflicted women out there regarding Ursula K. LeGuin. A hard conflct to resolve.

Yes I am and I sincerely beg your pardon. Brain cramp.
