    What a horrible, cynical way to frame a truly important and welcome development.

    This is the change that many of us voted for.

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post Society’s obsession with little girls.   2 years, 4 months ago · View

    What song are you talking about here?

    The only pop song I can think of about sex with an alien in the last couple of years is Katy Perry’s E.T., but there’s nothing about rape there…

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post So, What Color is Your Skin?   2 years, 6 months ago · View

    To be constructive rather than just point out problems, the following are excellent sources worth reading if you are interested in questions on the connotations of blackness in western art and the presence of sub-Saharan Africans and their descendents in pre-modern Europe. Kate Lowe and T.F. Earle, Black Africans in Renaissance Europe (Cambridge U.P. 2005) [...]

    I can’t speak for everything in this article, and I wouldn’t want to try given the wide range and lack of any citation. I will state however, that the material on the Borgia papacy and destroying early images of Christ is patent nonsense with no basis in history. There are tens of thousands of images [...]

  • Wow you really took Mustaine to task for not cutting his hair and metal fans to task for not being relevant. I hate Santorum and I don’t really understand this rather bizarre shift in Mustaine’s political sensibilities (he was, for example, the MTV correspondent for the Democratic National Convention during Bill Clinton’s first run). But [...]

    Right, so nobody with basic human rights and access to food and water should complain?

    Also, you seem to have some problems with math….

  • Says who? Dear Abby? The manners guy for the Times? You can believe something is “acceptable” or not, but that is purely your opinion and has nothing to do with the case at hand. Further, if you honestly believe that a heterosexual couple would be kicked off a plane for “making out” you are a [...]

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post What We Missed   2 years, 11 months ago · View

    I don’t understand the overrated white dudes site at all. Is it a parody of something? I don’t get what I’m missing because on the surface it’s pretty hard to claim that Bill Gates or Lewis Caroll are “overrated”. There are plenty of “overrated” people on this planet, currently and historically, but I just don’t [...]

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post Should artificial insemination be regulated?   2 years, 12 months ago · View

    I too am completely confused about what kind of regulation the OP is calling for here. From a feminist point of view, I just can’t see how what I do with my sperm or what you do with your eggs is not a no-brainer question of bodily autonomy.

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post Opposing Birth Control In the Name of Feminism? Really?   3 years, 1 month ago · View

    FYI:

    This study has absolutely nothing to do with Princeton University. It is from the right-wing, nutjob Witherspoon institute.

    Not sure where the confusion came from, but I hope it brings some comfort that this did not come out of a legitimate university.

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post Overheard in the men’s room   3 years, 1 month ago · View

    A lot to think about here, thanks for the effort you put into this post. I wish there was a way that posts that are getting a lot of comments and fostering discussion would remain on the front page because it seems that these discussions die very quickly as soon as a post falls down [...]

  • Just want to add my voice to the chorus of posters who are absolutely disgusted by this and to agree with those above who see this as indicative of systematic dysfunction within the U.S. justice system.

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post Hear Me Roar   3 years, 2 months ago · View

    I was hoping from the title that this would be a thread about the Lannisters. Oh well.

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post A world where there are waiting periods for war, not abortion   3 years, 2 months ago · View

    “in less” = “unless”

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post A world where there are waiting periods for war, not abortion   3 years, 2 months ago · View

    In case you haven’t noticed, we’re fighting several wars that the president, not congress started. And in the case of Libya, we’re fighting a war that the congress has not even given rubber stamp approval to. So, in less you are caught up on semantics, that planet is this one.

  • “There must be a reason why people still buy it.” Well, most women don’t actually conform to the definitions of feminism that are usually active on a site like Feministing. The women who buy Cosmo don’t do so because they think its “terrible” but for precisely the reasons that the OP has laid out (though [...]

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post The “feminist response to drinking culture” that isn’t.   3 years, 3 months ago · View

    Couldn’t agree more.

    I just posted a response as well on the main page which is now criticizing the article without acknowledging that Feministing actually promoted it (Rather than just “mentioned” it) in their previous post.

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post T J Maxx ad   3 years, 3 months ago · View

    It didn’t seem particularly offensive to me. We’re all on a budget of some sort and I think that the ad plays very well to the demographic TJ Max is trying to reach – young women with an interest in being fashionable who nonetheless can’t afford designer stuff at full price at boutiques. To the [...]

    I understand folks being upset about A & F, but for the love of all that is holy can we please avoid the whole “good old days” argument that is permeating this thread? From as long as humans have been writing their thoughts down, they have insisted that things were better before and that the [...]

  • Napoleoninrags commented on the blog post Amanda Palmer Sings Praise for Pubic Hair   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    “However, for me until Wolf and Palmer show that they actually have an understanding of WHY their actions and words are offensive and sincerely take a look at those behaviors, I have no real interest in singing their praises.” Which is basically a way of saying that until people agree to think like me, I [...]
