    LOL. No, I’m here many times a week, reading posts, sometimes commenting.

    I commented on a sexist statement, and the misogynists surrounded me. My attempting to defend myself and my opinion is no more than the right you would claim to defend your own positions, sister. How interesting that you would assume I am a woman - do you know no men who subscribe to equality?

    I honestly had no idea how many sexist people were still out there. I have stood up for my beliefs, but I have no overbearing interest in arguing with people with very antiquated beliefs about women, IMO. I did not come here to discuss sexism. I came here to discuss political issues. I had no idea the price was tolerating sexism.

    Wait a minute - I suggest that using “ette” to demean someone is reinforcing the meme that women are inferior, and then quite a few people come out saying women ARE inferior, and I’m a “feminazi”?

    I object to sexism and misogyny, yes. If you look at my views from the viewpoint of these posters, yes, I must seem very different. But a person expecting equality is not the extreme person (and women have had the vote for 50 years - they didn’t get it until after black people did - so I’m pretty sure there are no more suffragettes).

    Someone else could look at some posts here about protecting the 2nd amendment, and call them all gun crazies. Does that make it accurate? If someone threatens your guns or your religion, do you stand up for it? Yet somehow I’m different, for standing up for women’s equality...? I read blatently sexist posts, but *I* am the condescending one?

    “militant feminazi”??? because I don’t condone sexism? It’s hyperbole, with a design. I suggest that the name-calling is nothing more than an attempt to shut me down, rather than examine your own position.

    I did not respond to that original post to ignite a sexist firestorm. Some of you and I are very far apart on issues of fairness, and we will never come to a meeting of the minds. While I am not suggesting that one gender is superior, the others are. But *I* am the extreme one? Wow.

    So physical strength equates to superiority?

    I guess I won’t waste MY time waiting for you to tell me why the majority of graduates from medical, veterinarian, and psychology schools are now women.

    Same logic.

    Why, oh why, do some seem to feel that conservatism means that men are superior to women? Why, when I appeal for fair treatment, do claims of superiority emerge? Very strange to me. Differences are simply that - superiority and inferiority are cultural judgments. These archaic sexist memes suggest Saudi Arabia, not American enlightenment. It’s disheartening, to say the least.

    I’ve been here a few months.

    But how odd that the qualities that would be considered “women’s strengths” are the less valued in society, but the ones that are considered “men’s strengths” are the ones society is structured around. I guess that’s not “man-made”, though (/sarc). And there can be differences without value judgments attached.

    I don’t care to discuss this any further, as we are obviously light years apart on the issue. I will continue to point out misogyny when I see it, however. I will mention, though, that it’s amazing how overtly racist statements aren’t tolerated, here and in society, but blatently sexist statements are.

    If standing for equality is a liberal argument, then you have d*mned yourself. I want to be on the side of equality for all - I’m American, through and through.

    It seems very clear to me you weren’t able to understand what I was saying. Of course “ette” is diminutive, we are agreeing. I was asking you to consider why. You chose to resort to name-calling, instead.

    Does standing up to BO for demeaning what America stands for make all of us a “victim class”? No. Then why does it make women a victim class to stand up for their rights? If standing up for someone’s rights, and standing against gross mischaracterizations, is “political correctness” to you, that’s sad to me.

    Many people may use PC-ness as you suggest, but many people also diminish things as *being* PC to protect the status quo and any inequality that may exist to their favor.

    I appreciate your response. I was reading a lot of responses that suggested violent responses, and I was getting alarmed before I even got to your post.

    I understand your sentiment. I find myself really wondering where this is all going to go. It really seems like BO is destroying America as we know it, and his statements about America at the G20 aren’t helping my opinion. I don’t know what the solution is, if the BC thing doesn’t pan out. I feel fairly certain now that he won’t be re-elected, but will America last that long? But I get uncomfortable, when I think of people taking the law into their own hands. America had origins in violence, in order to effect a rule of law. I want us to continue to be a nation of laws, not violence, but when the “leaders” don’t follow the laws, or create crazy laws, what then? I don’t know.....

    But I appreciate your drawing the distinction of what you meant.

    I am definitely not a liberal, but I have no tolerance for misogyny. Women are 52% of the population, and it’s long past time for the diminutive treatment of them to cease.

    Think about your (and Rush’s) basis for the rationale for this word - “ette” is a “feminizer”, so by using it to put down reporters, of either gender, you are saying that likening someone to the feminine implies inferiority.

    It’s no different than putting down a man by calling him a “pussy” - you’re saying he is “less than” because he is like a woman - that very clearly implies that women are inferior.

    And that, very clearly, is inaccurate.

    How would this be different than the shootings we’ve seen in the last couple of days? Undoubtedly, those people strongly believed that their emotions and beliefs were “in the right”, and their actions defendable, just as you would...

    Expressing dissatisfaction by using deadly violence is never to be commended, IMO. Doesn’t matter how strongly the individual believes they are “right”. That’s just falling back on the “might makes right” argument, which basically means a person’s ideas don’t hold water.

    Anyone who wants to protect the 2nd amendment should condemn the use of weapons to express hopelessness, anger, or frustration. Those are emotions that belong in a therapist’s office, not behind a weapon.

    IMO, if someone is writing in Hawaiian, they should use the Hawaiian language. If they’re writing in English, they should use English. What if I were writing something about a Chinese person - by the “Hawai’i” logic, I’d have to write the word “China” and the person’s name in Chinese symbols. How would I be able to communicate then? The English speaking people reading my otherwise-English words, wouldn’t be able to read it. That makes no sense.

    I believe people should write in one language, not mix them. If your text is in Hawaiian, then use Hawaiian words. If you’re writing in English, use English. The point is communication, not being pretentious.

    “like the catholic priests touching boys, it was a catholic issue but mostly a homo problem and yet the media never covered that part of the story.”

    They have studied this. There are two reasons for the priest pedophile problem. 1 - these were priests from the older school, in which most of their lives they knew they would be going to seminary. They did not participate in the same coming of age experiences that their peers did, which led to their emotional/sexual maturity remaining fixated at a younger age level - ie, on a certain level, they felt as if a peer to the kids, which made them (actually an adult) a pedophile. 2- what is the best and closest, safest access a priest has to a kid? It’s to a boy in the choir, or working at the alter. Remember, these are sexist Catholic churches - girls may need not apply. All the fish in the tank were boys for the pedophiles to pick from.

    Homosexuality and pedophilia are two separate things.

    “Did ya ever notice that gay men couples only adopt boys?”

    Oh, come on. First, that’s not accurate. Gay men DO adopt girls. Second, you seem to be implying that they want the little boys so they can be pedophiles. Homosexuality and pedophilia are two SEPARATE things. Most (95%) pedophiles are straight men, they are not gay. When they have sex with another adult, it is an adult female. When they have sex with a child, the child may be girl, boy, or they may have a preference for both.

    It’s really very simple: Gay men have sex with gay men, bisexual men, and seemingly curious men. Pedophiles have sex with children, whether girl or boy. Again, pedophiles are 95% heterosexual men, not gay. Their preference is children, not gender.

    It’s been said that if you want to protect children, remove children from their own fathers (since a high percentage of pedophilia is incest).

    In reality, I believe the answer to rape and pedophilia is to have men MORE involved in the raising of children (supervised, of course). The more men become involved in raising children, the more they will understand that children are human beings, and not objects, and specifically not sexual objects.

    You have to be the person in question, or a close relative. And due to HIPPA laws, the hospital (if there is one) can’t confirm or deny his birth, and the Governor, Sec of State, Director of Records - no one - can speak to the issue themelves. All they can say is “there is one on file”.

    The only non-relative way to get the information is through a court order.

    But I read an article recently - someone sued, through the Freedom of Information Act, to see Obama’s Occidental College records (they wanted to see if he had applied or received funding as a “foreign student”). As I understand it, with a court case like that, the college must turn over the info. So what did they do? The first thing Occidental did was to contact Obama to cue them in, so they could do something to stop it.

    The bottom line: we have no idea if the computer image is of a real piece of paper, and even if so, we have no idea if that real piece of paper is genuine not forged. Finally, we can’t find out by other means, because the short form does not contain any specific info which can be verified.

    This is logical, but it is false. It turns out that, while there are qualifications to be president, there is no person or office specically charged with verifying this information. That’s the loophole that Obama crawled through. In each state, all a candidate had to do was sign a paper saying they were qualified. They didn’t have to prove it. That’s why that Roger Calderon guy (self-admittedly born and raised abroad) was on the ballot in many states.

    Furthermore, 95% of child molestors (whether they molest little boys or little girls) are straight men. Yet many people confuse pedophilia with sexual orientation, and specifically, with gay sexual orientation.

    My guess is they’re not being politically correct, but are being specific. Sexuality isn’t as black and white as gay/straight - it’s a continuum. There are men who, on the continuum, are mostly straight, but have (and act on) their coexistent attraction to other men.

    So when these men have sex, it would be inaccurate to call it “homosexual contact”, because they’re not homosexual men. It is more accurate to call it “men having sex with men”.

    If it were only about gay men, there would be no explanation for why so many non-drug using, married women get HIV.

    I think it makes a lot of men more psychologically comfortable to think that sexuality is dichotomous, but it’s just not reality. It’s like people saying that Obama is black, and disregarding that he is half white.

    But don’t forget, they also pushed Obama. And the DNC - OMG. Remember, Hillary led in popular votes (she won the most primary votes in history in any dem primary)and delegates, until they took some from her and gave them to him at the RBC meeting. Then the DNC broke their own rules in the convention to avoid a fair vote so that he could win. So the manipulation was all over this election, not just in reference to McCain. And with redistricting shenanigans, and the predictable upcoming census shenanigans - uggghh Can you tell I’m totally disgusted with these people?

    Wasn’t his son the one in charge of overseeing the investigation into passport-Gate? He probably knows all.

    I think you’re right - especially since Terry was for Hillary. He got Obama by default.

    His father wasn’t a citizen - his allegiance was to Kenya, which is where he returned to with his US education. So Obama wasn’t born of parents not owing any other allegiance...

    You’re not to blame. People have hypotheses or beliefs, and they present them as facts. Someone reads it, and assumes it IS a fact and then they go on to post it as if it’s a fact.. I see people posting that Obama isn’t an NBC - but we don’t have that proof. We have LOADS of reasons to believe something’s not right, that he may not be an NBC, but we don’t KNOW. Or the stuff about the amount of money being spent for attorneys. Now, I don’t believe the story that his lawyers are working probono (I think lawyers only do that for poor people, they do it for their brownie points, why would they get brownie points for doing free work for a rich man???), so I believe that he is paying attorneys to deal with these cases. But we don’t know how much! It started out as thousands, then tens of thousands, then the number 800,000 became really popular, and now it’s over a million. We don’t have facts for any of this - but people state it as if we do. It gets frustrating. I’m very interested in these threads, but I want to read facts. I also want to read people’s hypotheses, but I’d like them presented as such - otherwise the (alert) reader has to do a mental search to see if they’ve missed something, ie, was there some documentation about a new costs for attorneys and I missed it being posted? etc

    “If he is illegitimate he can’t be impeached. He will just be removed from the White House by US Marshals and share a room with Madoff.”

    And if Orly reports this on her blog and calls the US Marshalls “Secret Service”, at least then no one will care or be freaked out by her mistake!

    Don’t quote me, but I’m pretty sure I read that she’s not a conservative....? I think what I read said that she voted for Hillary. (no need for any CDS response, thank you)

    I’ve known female Russian immigrants, and when they get excited, they’re just like Orly. I think it’s just a style that’s part of her culture, and only seems weird to us because of the cultural differences. In other words, I don’t think that style is seen as “out of control” there, as it is here. Maybe others have more insight and can chime in.
