I do have to say, especially after reading the silly outrage on the Bette Midler article, that it’s amusing to watch all the hand-wringing amongst black people having to rebuke someone who isn’t white.

Gosh, it’s almost as if Bette Middler weren’t thinking of her and her audience as black but just as an outspoken and admired person whose opinion carries weight. Read more

Feel sorry for him, having to deal with a stick-in-the-mud like that. I bet she’s a blast at parties. Gah.

Wow, okay. You really have some issues to work out. Not sure what I wrote that would bring out that kind of hostility. I’m also not sure what feelings you think were hurt here. In fact, I had forgotten all about this dumb article until today when I was browsing the site and noticed there were responses. But if it Read more

Have you read the book? Do you understand the context of the scene you’re critiquing or are you assuming you understand it?

I wonder how many people bitching about this scene have actually read the book and understand the context of it. I read it. The context takes the shock out of it considerably. I suspect those overreacting have not actually read the novel.

Holy crap, not in my experience. In my experience, women are WAY more condescending in the workplace than men. Even my wife said that to me once which amazed me to hear.

See, here’s a case where you can get called out for mansplaining when you’re just treating an incompetent female co-worker the same way you’d treat an incompetent male co-worker. I still think this mansplaining stuff is about creating a skewed playing field and giving women a way to shame a man for daring to disagree Read more

That’s not the definition of mansplaining as explained to me by so many women I’ve discussed it with. What you define in the first paragraph is just run-of-the-mill condescending behavior. Frankly, I’ve seen as much of that from women in the workplace as from men. I was under the impression that “mansplaining” is when Read more

Yeah, it seems black people have just as much bigotry to deal with in their own ranks as from outside it.
