WTF? Comic book character indeed. At first I didn't realize what a moonbat she was. What was she talking about? Could you provide a reference to this proposterous and made up sounding research?

Wow, now I know how the Borat fans felt!


Ahh, got it. I see what you mean. *plonk*


No offence, Adam, but isn't plonking someone like this a bit silly? I mean, it's not like a forum or newsgroup, where you can genuinely excise a person from your conscious existence.

This is just for show and tell.

P.S.: If it weren't, I would've publicly plonked a few people on Althouse by now, and they me. Mostly, we ignore each other, and it seems more civil that way.

Still, to each his own. :)

Cheers,
Victoria

I am not a regular poster here but I read this woman Maxine's comment, and I couldn't help myself.

"I've talked to many women who've given birth to only boys. And, they've all said, time and time again, they've had problems with women/girls...all their life. ---That it wouldn't have worked out."

WTF? Comic book character indeed. At first I didn't realize what a moonbat she was. What was she talking about? Could you provide a reference to this proposterous and made up sounding research?

And then it all made sense:

"God gives you what you need."

Ahh, got it. I see what you mean. *plonk*

Sorry I missed the joke, Victoria. Could you or someone either explain or provide a link, so I can better understand Maxine's odd ways. I'm always looking for amusement.

That if you read Maxine "straight" you'll think she's barmy or a troll (sorry about speaking like this rudely, in the third person).

Ann replied, "Can't you see that Maxine is a comic character?".

Once I started to read Maxine's comments in this vein, I have enjoyed them a lot.

Now I see why Chris Althouse has her on his blogroll.

(I had thought he was getting back at his mum...somehow!).

Cheers,
Victoria

2007-02-02T12:47:00.000-06:00

Reading Linda Hirshman, I get the impression that she is strongly attached to liberal politics and thinks that women, to be rational, must vote for Democrats. She is fired up and mad at women for not seeing that they must vote for Democrats. You tell me whether that's rational or emotional.

It's hard not to get worked up, when someone targets you. I hope people realise that, when they read these (may I say innumerable) threads where you trot out yet another person who went for your jugular, because of your perceived politics.

FWIW, I think you did a great job, Ann, of posting why this particular woman misconstrued what you wrote (or indeed, didn't even read what you wrote, but simply inferred what they imagine someone who isn't liberal, would think).

Once, when I was taking a Clerk of a polling station training class, I was seated next to a 60-something lady. She and I got to talking, and she blurted out something foul about President Bush.

I stopped. Turned around, and said, "I'm a Republican".

I swear to you, as long as I live, I'll never get over the look of disgust she gave me.

"WHY?"

She said, with a voice that implied, are you retarded or just evil.

This lady was a retired federal court judge...who flinched visibly when I asked her opinion about FDR trying to jimmy the amount of SCOTUS justices back in the day, after she mentioned something about Bush trying to overhaul the "system" to his ends.

This is this Linda Hirshman all over, it seems to me.

It's okay when it's one of us, but if you're not, God help you.

Cheers,
Victoria

2007-02-02T12:38:00.000-06:00

Hey Ann, I figured out what you meant about Maxine about a week ago, you'll be happy to know. That's why my sides hurt laughing so much now, about the boy-girl thingie.

I'm slow, but at least I'm stupid too.

Cheers,
Victoria



Ann, don't get mad at this; but there was a study ...

2007-02-02T10:43:00.000-06:00

Ann, don't get mad at this; but there was a study done at UCLA a couple of years back....about women who give birth to ONLY boys.

It was found that the women who birthed ONLY boys, had a problem with girls. These women don't really get along with the female gender.

And, vice versa. Men who sire only daughters, usually have a problem with other men, and few male friends.

Parents who have both boys and girls are fine. And the research is inconclusive regarding parents who have only one child

It's just when you give birth to one or the other over and over again....you have to look to the opposite gendered parent....and you can see how this works out.

I've talked to many women who've given birth to only boys. And, they've all said, time and time again, they've had problems with women/girls...all their life. ---That it wouldn't have worked out.

God gives you what you need.

But it's more than that, this was an actual study done.

Hey Ann, just think: If you'd given birth to all girls---you and Linda Hirshman would be best-pals by now!

Peace, Maxine

"critics like the gentleman"?

Schmitt isn't criticizing me, he's taking on Hirshman, who also attacked me and whom I'd written about before. Hirshman is a prominent feminist writer who talks about things that I'm very concerned about. So I choose to get involved here. Anyway, I like Schmitt and did a Bloggingheads with him and wanted to link to his terrific piece.

Schmitt's rebuke is terrific, as his writing usually is.

Professor--

Not that you asked, but my advice would be to ignore critics like the gentleman. To most readers, I'll bet that such debates are of little interest, though it is very evident that they are passionate and all too often involve hurtful ad hominems.

Imagine if daily newspapers gave over pages and pages to disputes it and its reporters were having with other papers and other writers. It's all inside baseball.
