    Default More random cultural and political thoughts

    Could it be that Isaac's arrival in Florida at the same time as the RNC, thus putting a damper (pun intended) on the festiviites, was devine intervention?

    If your import amid discussion is to ridicule, sabotage, and/or dismiss, you will no longer receive the privilege of my attention. Passive aggressive behaviors are a defense mechanism of oppressed and ultimately even self-defeated persons. Disregarding and/or ridiculing the concerns of others doesn't legitimize or address your own. You have betrayed a critical trust I must have in you that you are engaging or asking of me to enhance each of our perspectives rather than ridicule mine or reaffirm your own biases. Express your own concerns and/or support your own ideals. Your antics reek of repression and aren't constructive.

    ^ Really?

    This pen is great. I bought it for all my female friends and relatives. It enabled them, finally, to write things (although they may not yet know to do so on paper; but you can only expect so much, really). I thought they were just a bit slow.

    My mother, a hard-working woman who raised twelve kids single-handedly whilst doing all the ironing (as nature intended), was furtively abashed by her illiteracy. Long would she gaze upon her husband and sons' scrawlings and would dedicate five minutes a day (which she really should have spent making sandwiches) to pray that one day she would be granted the ability to create such scribbles of her own. She's still a little slow on the uptake, but this product has definitely helped start the ball rolling. We tried to give her men's pens but she used to rip the cartridges out and drink the ink. Typical woman.

    Anyway, it's good that BIC are finally doing something to aid the plight of women. Hopefully a range of 'for her' paperclips is on the horizon - my wife has an awful time keeping her recipes together.

    @KLG: considering the tone of the rest of the comments on that page, I think that reviewer is being facetious.About Intell's post: Awesome Baratunde Thurston launched #negrospotting hashtag for the RNC convention. Among the finds:

    Hilarious! Here's another one.

    One reviewer, writing under the name breemeup, is highlighted as "the most helpful favorable review" on Amazon since she gave the pens five stars. The title of the review is, "I am writing this in the kitchen."

    "Finally! For years I've had to rely on pencils, or at worst, a twig and some drops of my feminine blood to write down recipes (the only thing a lady should be writing ever)," the reviewer wrote. "I had despaired of ever being able to write down said recipes in a permanent manner, though my men-folk assured me that I "shouldn't worry yer pretty little head". But, AT LAST! Bic, the great liberator, has released a womanly pen that my gentle baby hands can use without fear of unlady-like callouses and bruises. Thank you, Bic!"

    It would be different if women used pens in fundamentally different ways than men did. Like gendered razors, I get. But pens?

    I'm absolutely positive he's being facetious. Those reviews are great

    I really like this article...When Bill Met Hillary ...

    “He was the first man I’d met,” she told one interviewer, “who wasn’t afraid of me.”
