digitalsocrates asked: I think an important distinction you have to make when you are trying to make devil's advocate arguments (especially in cases of oppression) is to not imply guilt on the victim's part.

digitalsocrates asked: I gotta say that your argument reeks of many kinds of arguments that derail and undermine feminist arguments. If I had to take a guess her comment was probably not out of line with what many male legislatures say regularly, and they wouldn't have faced the same kind of repercussions.

hungryghoast replied to your post: ok so this Michigan Vagina thing. ...– I understand anger and frustration, especially in Michigan’s especially egregious congressional hearings which have been proven to be largely a farce since the republicans have taken over.

ok so this Michigan Vagina thing.
I am very much against the idea that this woman couldn’t say the word vagina, and I absolutely think that this is just a way for the republican representatives to silence a democrat. I would bet a clean hundo it is just an excuse for them to jump on. but also The comment she made did actually lack some decorum. Not because she said Vagina, but because she made a comment about her...

Last week I finally started reading Game of Thrones I generally wait for a series to finish before I start into it, because I have PROBLEMS with waiting. I waited until Harry Potter was complete before starting in. I watched all of Evangelion (with movies) in one Massive sitting. So I am titlated with the reading and mad at myself for not holding out. It is a complex feeling, much like that...
