Monday Misogyny

(The irony of where I found this one was irresistable.)
But that's the thing: Nobody becomes stereotypical housewife, no matter how hard they try. It's a gender construct, which means if there is such an individual, they're not a perfect embodiment of that gender, they're a parody.


  1. Yeah, as the person she was responding to, there? There just wasn't a lot for me to say to that which didn't leave me feel like I was banging my head against a brick wall, so I stuck to the bit I thought I had a chance at. I'm glad it wasn't just me ...

  2. jen -- I thought you came off awesomely myself. I was busy holding back my temper in the thread where she was bashing Grant Morrison, which also, coincidentally, crossed into hatred of religion. I wasn't very successful, though.

  3. Thankyou. And yeah, I saw that thread, and just kind of blinked a lot, and then blinked some more. I think part of me wanted to say something, but the rest of me just didn't have words.
