Who's Tired of Pink

Who's Tired of Pink? Posted January 11, 2008 | 11:45 AM (EST)

I am so tired of pink men bombing brown children and rationalizing it as fighting terrorism. I am so tired of pink men telling women (of all colors) what to do with their wombs--which connect with their brains--in case you forgot. I am so tired of pink men telling us we should stay in Iraq for generations. I am so tired of pink men buying bombs and cheating schools. I am so tired of pink men having wives who stand behind them and nod sagely on television. I am so tired of pink men expecting that someone--a brown, black, yellow or white woman--will trail behind them changing light bulbs, taking out garbage, washing laundry, keeping food in the house, taking care of kids of all ages, of parents of all ages. I am so tired of pink men whose wives double or triple the family income thinking they can spend it without doing a damn thing at home. I am so tired of pink men spouting nonsense on TV. I am so tired of pink men arguing, blathering, bloviating, predicting the future--usually wrongly--and telling women to shut up. I am so sick of hearing that another pink man has dropped his children out a window, off a bridge or killed his pregnant wife or killed his unpregnant wife because he was infatuated with another pregnant woman. I am so sick of pink men making war and talking about peace. I am so sick of pink men appointing their mediocre cronies to judgeships, to political advisors, to cushy jobs, to columns in the paper, to multimillion-dollar posts as CEOS or actors (while the actresses make less) or producers or writers or newsreaders or talk show bloviators or supposedly sage counselors at law. I am so tired of pink men.

Email Print Comment And by the way some brown men and tan men and wheaten men do these things too.

Don't tell me about women who kill. I know there are some--but fewer. So let's just remember our mothers--who bore us, protected us against our fathers and grandfathers and all the pink or brown men who wanted to rape us or kill us or starve us because we were girls.

I am not stupid. I know all generalizations are false. I know there are bad mothers, bad women, bad sisters, bad aunts, and bad females of every stripe. But I have seen enough men in high office to last a lifetime.

Let's give women a chance!

What an incredibly racist and absurd article. Is this what the left has come to? Blatent racist attacks filled with pejoratives directed at a racial minority? (White are a minority in California and in the World.)

I'm sure, as an author, the Ms. Jong is aware that the term "pink" is as derogatory a epithet for whites as exists. It is typically folllwed by the word "m.f." in the conversation of anti-white racists. A group the Ms. Jong unabassadley joins with this article.

Is the progressive community, as typified by Huffington Post now suggesting we return to judging people, and generalizing about them, based on the color of their skin?

This is a sickening article and Huff Post, even Huff Post, should not have published it.

Especially given the overheated racial rhetoric the Clinton campaign is engaging in, this is terrible.

An apology is owed to Whites and readers for this abomination.

I can sum this article up in one sentence:

Vote for Hillary since she’s a woman.

Freakin liberals...always take forever and a day to say what they really think!

Louisiana gave a woman a chance. Governor Blanco, remember?

Along came one crisis, and she broke down to the point where thousands were in danger because of her dithering and inaction.

So... do people really want more of *that*? I think not.

This is an assinine racist diatribe. I’m sure that Oprah Winfrey would agree that a given woman is unable to earn as much as any given ‘pink’ man. Sheesh, give me a break.

Unbelievably stupid. - This bitch owes me an apology, because this is simply too stupid.

Stupid, so stupid it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid.
This is trans-stupid stupid.
Meta-stupid.
Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed.
Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid.
Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid.

This just emitted more stupid in one post than our entire galaxy emits in a year.
Quasar stupid.

Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid.

Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid.
Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know.

This is an epiphany of stupid for me.

I’m sorry. I can’t go on.

My boss told me he was a little disappointed in a sales program we had this year; it was “won” by two white guys in an office of racially, ethnically, and sexually diverse people. That two Christian, heterosexual, white, family men won - is not good for the office.

When the incompetence of the female democrat “governor” of Louisiana was coupled with the incompetent buffoonery of the black democrat so-called “mayor” of NOLA, it became clear that the operative term “democrat” more accurately could be used to predict the adverse outcomes rather than sex or color.

Boy, can I get away with posting a laundry list of why I am tired of the victimhood antics and self-imposed failures of the brown, and the wheaten, or however this clown tries to characterize people? I think not.

Besides, so much of the blame resides with “a pink guy”. MY tagline summarizes it.

Owens Corning has or had a 1-800-GET-PINK hotline. Their mascot is the Pink Panther after all. But there was an objection to calling it 1-800-GET-PINK when a male employee at the strategy session said 1-800-GET-PINK sounded too much like a phone number for an escort service or prostitute.

I’m tired of women using their wombs to bomb the future generation of the United States of America and having the nerve to call it a choice. The generation being destroyed has no choice.

I’m tired of the United States allowing laws supporting the mass extermination of an entire class of people, the future generation who has not made the journey from the womb to the freeist and most democractic country in the history of the world.

I’m tired of mass demand to choices which are immoral and really unthinkable in a country that is founded on a belief in the universal rights of man.

I am tired of the whimping and dumbing down of men on tv. Every tv show and/or commercial has men being stupid, fat, lazy, unaware while the wife girl friend is keen, witty, smart, and a hottie ( most cases ).

My sons are men. They change the oil and when they spill it on the ground they don’t clean it up. They hunt, they open doors for ladies, they are polite, they remove their hats indoors, they eat read meat, they do not think homos are funny and better designers, they like the 3 stooges, Little Rascals, Tom & Jerry and Jonny Quest... I could go on but I refuse to raise whimps.

Maybe she was just ranting to get a little attention. I think she’s married four men so far, and by her way of describing people, one of them was yellow and the other three were probably more or less pink. Whether or not she is over her fear of flying and other trendy neurotic tendencies, I couldn’t say. She hasn’t written anything that interested me in decades, and this little diatribe surprised me because I figured she was long since dead.
