As the only girl on this blog, I thought it was time that you all got to share in my opinion of the Canadian Blog Award fiasco now in full throttle. I haven’t posted anything up to now because, quite bluntly, CC and PSA have taken care of things quite nicely. However, and you knew that was coming, I really can’t ignore this any longer.
I don’t believe in labels per se – I guess I just find them to be too confining. That being said, I am a feminist, if, by feminist, you mean someone who believes that gender should never be an issue. Of course, we don’t live in a world like that so I see the need for a feminist movement. If I can do just as good a job as the guy with the penis sitting in the office next to mine, why am I not being paid the same as the guy with said penis?
But here’s the thing, when you say “feminist” to someone like SUZANNE and her fellow shrieking harpies or any of the manly men conservative bloggers, they automatically think “emasculating, man-hating, abortion-loving ball-breaker”. And therein lies the problem. You can’t reason with people who are this pathologically stupid and I have neither the time nor the inclination to try. Besides, what’s the point? They have their agenda and they will never, ever, ever deviate from it. Feminists/progressives are bad, they (i.e. conservatives) are good and never the twain shall meet in their tiny, repressive little minds.
As far as the awards go, I can’t take any of the credit for CC's nomination since I’m the new girl. Even if I could, it’s irrelevant. I believe in what I do, whether it’s blogging or fundraising or volunteering or whatever, and I don’t need an award to justify that. I really don’t need an award put together by a group of people who would roll over and play dead that quickly for a vicious, hateful, finger-pointing scold/cunt like SUZANNE.
So that’s my two cents ... for what it’s worth.
My, my, aren't we sensitive. Saskboy in the comments here:
CC, respectfully, get stuffed.
Fine print: This message was not approved by the Canadian Blog Awards Operators and is my own opinion. For you, who has now written 4 posts about the CBAs just to say that you're not interested and don't respect the work that I'm trying to do with them, it's really rude. So get STUFFED!
Is that showing a big enough "pair" you selfish, hypocritical, sexist drama-whore?
As Ti-Guy so aptly put it, it's really too fucking bad you didn't show the same amount of spine when SUZANNE, that "selfish, hypocritical, sexist drama-whore" hijacked your awards in the first place. Good saskboy! Would you like a cookie?
And furthermore: (Look out boys, I've got my pointy shoes on and I'm ready to kick ass.) You know, saskboy, I actually felt bad for you because in trying to find a compromise that will make everyone happy, you made no one happy. Except SUZANNE - who got exactly what she wanted - a blog awards that will only recognize blogs that are acceptable to her. So any sympathy I had for you and your awards ... gone.
And btw, "sexist drama-whore"? Seriously? Why go all potty-mouthed when you're here but be perfectly reasonable and civil with SUZANNE while she's pissing all over your discussion thread?
