Incredibly lazy blogging

I love hairy women. I find it very natural and very attractive. Blokes I know feel the same so it's so sad that many women feel the need to conform with peers instead of giving the men what they want - curvy, natural and hairy instead of thin, cosmetic and hairless.Dan, Cambridge, UK

I found this comment here where comedian Shazia Mirza is speaking of her decision not to shave.

Anyone want to make a suggestion about why it pissed me off?

1 pt to you if you get it right
2pts to you if you make me think of another reason to be pissed off by it

Not to mention 'feel the need to...', as if beauty standards aren't real, and women are just confused.

"Shaving female body hair is seen as a way to differentiate between the sexes."

Gosh, I was really, really sure that there were OTHER ways to tell?

Bea: play nice *wink*

Had better clarify, the last sentence was in reference to Bea's.

Plus RE, you had better get organised with a notebook, to keep track of which rads know each other IRL or merely cyberly.

Conversion is futile with the former.

Horse, dead, really. Jo has commented at my place before, I've read here before,if Jo would like me not to read here, I will stop.

I apologise for the outburst here.

Two weeks ago I sincerely asked for a truce between the pro- and anti- porn camps, and it was met with comment after comment, and multiple posts that were anti-rad.

Whereas the rads have NOT been doing same.

Hence, my anger got the better of me and I let a narky comment slip out here. But hell, hardly the same volume and venom that matches what the pro-pornstitutionists have been saying for the last few weeks, is it?

But then, that's what it's all about isn't it, RE, keep baiting until someone finally retaliates, then hold up that one comment as "see, THEY are just as bad".

Perhaps I should do my little statistical analysis on the comments and posts over the last two weeks???

Jo has a pet at the bottom of the blog page. It's a wolf and it follows the cursor. Just scroll right down to see it.

Stormy: Your second comment seems to sum up where you're at quite well.

You begin with apology, which I take as sincere, at least in a "Oh shit, I've let my anger show again kind of way."

Then, you say: "Two weeks ago I sincerely asked for a truce between the pro- and anti- porn camps, and it was met with comment after comment, and multiple posts that were anti-rad.
Whereas the rads have NOT been doing same.'

I agree and disagree. There has been much nastiness from both sides -- cloaked or otherwise. I mean, you have to admit you've been guilty of "nastiness" yourself, Stormy as I have I.

(Except, as neither pro or anti porn, I'm not sure I even get heard in much of this. No, wait yes I do: I get NO PROBLEMS from the pro-porn camp -- they don't care. Rads however dislike that I'm "gray" here. Anyway...)

Forgive me for doing an Armchair Psych Profile on you Storm but Comments like this "But then, that's what it's all about isn't it, RE, keep baiting until someone finally retaliates, then hold up that one comment as "see, THEY are just as bad" show me your MAD AS HELL. I think, maybe ideally, you'd like to be polite and have truces, but damn it -- some bloggers just PISS YOU OFF!

Which, you know, is okay.
I know that feeling and have been guilty of making some low blows.

This: "Perhaps I should do my little statistical analysis on the comments and posts over the last two weeks??? "

LET.
IT.
GO.

Do we need more "roundups" of Operation Wasp type crap?
Do we?

I mad, Ren's mad, Storm's mad, mad mad mad. (I'm PISSED really, as yet another rad fem as gone and torn a woman down and done her a great wrong while working her same old agenda and I'm EVEN more pissed that I don't have the guts to "go there." But you know what? Why should I? SHE won't change, I won't change. She sees things thru her Experience-Specific Glasses, I see thru mine, you know? Blog yelling blog yelling on and on NOTHING CHANGES.

We women (fogive infantile caps, but I simply must)LET INTO EACH OTHER WITH FAR MORE HATE AND PASSION THAT WE DO WITH THE DREADED PATRIARCHY. WE ATTACK ONE ANOTHER AND NURSE OLD WOUNDS WE GIVE EACH OTHER FAR HARDER AND LONGER THAN WE DO ANY INJUSTICE TO WOMEN.

What in the HELL is up with this?

Oh, hell -- just forget it.
Sorry for typo and halfthoughts.

I owe Bea a public apology for my momentary lapse in judgement. Because of my words, she has been unfairly maligned. I am really sorry Bea.

I also owe Jo an apology, for having this 'lapse' on her blog. I believe my words can be twisted as insisting who can comment where, and that was not my intention. I am sorry Jo.

Before leaving this subject I do want to say that my first clarification was so as NOT to negate the comment left by RE (which was a completely valid comment to the thread). However, I did NOT call RE a dog (you twisted my words AGAIN, RE). There is an expression "barking up the wrong tree", which I am sure you know quite well.

Of all the bloggers, I am probably best known for being straightforward and saying what I mean. Please, stop reading more into my words than is there, and don't bother with the arm-chair shrinking either.

SC-

I "take things" they way they hit me when I read them. It's not a matter of twisting, it's the impression I got, and continue to get, from certain people.

I didn't see Jo's wolf, perhaps s/he does not load on my browser. Noted.

What are you lot on about?

Yes I have a pet wolf at the bottom of my blog page. It is a she, and she is called Wolf.

Now stop bickering.

Oh, and if you click on her face she growls, and if you click on her arse she sits. Seconds of fun.

Blogger Bea said...

Oh, but that's not all Jo. She also eats chops and howls at the moon. I had more than a few seconds of fun - double that at least.

OK, let's deal with the hairy post.

1. He loves hairy women. How is that relevant?

2. He finds it natural. Women have hair. What men think about it has nothing to do with whether or not it is natural.

3. He finds it attractive - again, this is irrelevant.

4. He thinks it's sad that, arghh, I give up, I haven't got all night. How can one man get such a short comment so wrong.

Stop trying to scoop all the points Bea. Greed, sheer greed.

Anyway, what's the prize for all these points?

A romantic weekend on a cruiseship for three or more.

Blogger stormy said...

Three or more what?

Cats, chickens, snails, horses, dogs, wolves...

Anyway, it's all sounding a bit like that biblical rubbish about two of everything, why the hell did he pack in two slugs? They munch through everything in the garden.

I kinda answered my own question perhaps, he, under the instruction of another he, thought it would be a good lark.

Disclaimer: there ends about 50% of my knowledge of biblical stories, so just don't expect any more, ok?

The emphasis on what MEN want rather than women having positive ideas of the natural female body. It's like, if I try to have a feminist discussion with a man who isn't aware that its not all about what he wants, its about women's wellbeing, positive body image and happiness, not his!! Grr...some men really piss me off.

I love your lovely wolf!! I have a kitten on my blog :-D

Just de-lurking, I don't think I've commented before, your blog is fab =D

Hi Fallingstar, thanks for dropping by. Just added you to blogroll. Love your kitten!

Yes, of course I was pissed off by his "what the men want" arrogance, that what he personally considers attractive should be in any way relevant to women shaving or not.

I'm sure he was trying to earn a few brownie points in a sea of men going "ugh! hair!", but unfortunately he came across as an idiot. Ah well, shit happens.

You all have loads of points and are coming on the cruiseship with me and my wolf.
