I was going to do a post on my own analysis of What Happened and Why, because I see the ‘experts’ are missing some very obvious things, such as fear of what will land on SCOTUS in the next few years. I believe this was another one of those critical elephants in the room the pundits ‘forgot’ about. I have several other issues I think affected the outcome, what’s the point? It’s done.
But like I said somewhere in comments, just because you ignore a problem doesn’t mean it’s not a problem. I can assure you others aren’t ignoring it with you–and there might be more of them than you imagine. It’s kind of like that. Specifically, women are 51% of the population and they are sick of taking shit from Politicans and their Sycophants. That’s likely why 11% more women than men voted on Tuesday. 67% of single women voted for Obama. They will continue to play up the latino vote as The Decider, forgetting that half of them are women too. Just saying. Elephant. Meet Room.
That having been said, we will continue on fighting sexism and misogyny on this blog in all ways we can, and if you don’t like it, that’s why God made Exit buttons on blogs.
I will issue one caveat, here, for some men. If you do not believe that women have the right to be as equal as you are, if you think that women’s rights should take a back seat to something “more important” to you, then do us all a favor, including yourself — don’t fake it here. You will give yourself away in no time flat. Just move along so we don’t have to help you do it. On this blog, nothing, and I do mean nothing, trumps human rights. Without your rights, you are nothing. The same holds true for the rest of us, even if it’s an inconvenience to you at any given time. Just move along. We are not put on this earth to obey you. Period. There are plenty of places for you to hang out, and this is not one of them. What’s so hard about that? If being sick of “asking” a patriarchy for rights we were born with makes us “Militant” or “Radical” in your eyes, then that’s your problem, not ours. We aren’t falling for it. We don’t think you wanting your rights is Radical, so what gives you the right to think our same demand is? We have some really wonderful and sincere men on this blog who are not only supportive, but stand beside us. We can do without you if our stance bothers you, honest. For this is a feminist blog. Period.
That also having all been said, if this blogger were to blog about things, which of these categories, if any, would you care to see continue? Pick as many as you want——and feel free to discuss more ideas if you have any. I don’t see myself blogging every day right now, but hey, the comment section of this blog will always be here for you as it always was, complete with welcome “OT” comments. With the same rules that once gave you comfort, and with the same sincerity. I definitely do not want to spend the next four years dedicated to politics unless it’s relevant to those things that trigger me, such as Women’s Rights. I do not consider that politics, I consider it critical to the lives of 51% of the population. I might blow a politics gasket once in a while if I see something really stupid or dangerous (how easy is that?), but for the most part, I am not going to expend energy on these thieves.
We have those who have stuck with this blog, you troopers, you! We have those who found other homes in lieu of this one, we bear them no malice, welcome if we see them again. Wish them well if we don’t. We have those who lurk and “come out” now and then, and we will have new members as well. It’s the cycle of blogging, so it’s best to just move on with life, including and especially life outside of the internet.
