There are certain milestones in a feminist blogger’s career–the first time someone “discovers” your real name and blasts it all over the internet; the first time someone comments and says “your fat” or “your gay”; the first time someone tells you that you just need to find a man, but of course, no man will have you, because you are bossy and ugly–that tell you you’re on the right track.
Yesterday, I feel like I hit a number of those milestones all at once.
First, Dan Turnbow over at Post Politics lumped me in with Southern Beale and The Tennessee Guerrilla Women:
If Kimmy would promise to have the state troopers arrest Bush and Cheney if they ever set foot in Tennessee so she could turn them over to the Hague for war crimes. Then B,Sobeale,guerilla women and the rest of the lady libs would be panting like a teenage girl watching Zac Efron over Kimmy.
It’s practically perfect. There’s this thing, which purpotes to be a sentence, that starts with “If” that involves some fantasy he assumes I have of having Bush and Cheney arrested. That’s funny enough. But let’s look at the sentence starting “then” which is un-parsable, I think. How does it work? Are the lady libs panting over Kim McMillan the way that teenage girls pant over Zac Efron? Are we panting like teenages girls pant when they watch Zac Efron have sex with Kim McMillan. Are we panting like teenage girls when we watch Zac Efron having sex with Kim McMillan. “Zac Efron over Kimmy” is a euphamism for sex, right?
Anyway, I have discovered that, when they start lumping you in with Egalia, you know you’ve irritated some folks.
I think I got concern-trolled by Pith! Note that again, I’m being lumped in with Southern Beale (which causes me to about die of flattery), because Woods is concerned that we’re not supporting McMillan, when, apparently, it is obvious that we should because, though we may not have noticed, she is a woman and we are women!!!!! And then bb tries to warn me that I cannot possibly be a successful political blogger if I don’t know everything there is to know about state-wide politics the second I am called to task by Jeff Woods.
This makes me laugh so hard.
I mean, looking at my numbers, and judging by my most popular posts, I am actually a very shitty hermaphrodite porn blogger who is disappointing her core audience by only posting about hermaphrodite porn once. If I wanted numbers and influence, I would chuck all this and devote my time solely to watching and blogging about very poor quality hermaphrodite porn.
Oh well, I’m missing my calling, apparently.
