Well, not really. This is just to call attention to what's been going on in this diary...
Ostensibly a satirical swipe, ostensibly mimicing Maureen Dowd's own high school/Freudelicious analysis of public figures ' dress, hair styles, personalities, and pets, the "Sexist Thought of the Day: Maureen Dowd Needs a Husband" diary didn't quite pull it off (imho).
I think I understand the genesis of the diary, but something went off course.
I was mildly bothered by the diary, but -- frankly -- even moreso by the sexist comments just skipping around the playground below it. Sans satire.
I don't know what the hell her problem is, but I know she's a bitch. A hot looking bitch, but still a bitch.
also, various other, apparently non-satiric comments about her need of a man, a husband, "physical activity," etc.
which brings me to mention that this diary is not necessarily just about comments re dowd.
one of the common retorts to complaints about sexist language and gender slurs is that females need to have a sense of humor.
honestly, females do have a sense of humor, but there's a difference between someone laughing at you and someone laughing with you.
a lot of females, especially when they experience casually tossed off comments like this, question whether they're being laughed at, or with.
just to consider. thanks for reading.
