The 2007 Canadian Blog Awards: Fuck 'em and the horse they rode in on.
In a couple earlier posts, I explained why this blog wasn't interested in participating in the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards (CBAs), but if others wanted to play, that was fine with me, good luck and more power to them.
I take that all back.
Now I really am calling for any Canadian blogger with an ounce of integrity to tell the CBA organizers what they can do with their worthless awards show, based on the discussion here, where CBA co-organizer Saskboy gets thoroughly run over by Blogging Tory and stupid cunt SUZANNE Fortin regarding whether there should be a "Best Feminist Blog" category.
Really, SB, you have got to be fucking kidding. It's bad enough that you let a commenter dictate what categories you're going to support, but to get browbeaten by stupid cunt SUZANNE -- who refers to the Status of Women Canada as "SOW"s and portrays them visually on her shithole of a blog as actual barnyard pigs -- you let her dictate the terms of your award categories in terms of feminism? Holy fuck, but you need to grow a pair.
In any event, I think others both here and elsewhere have already adequately described how this year's CBAs aren't worth shit anymore. Understand this, Saskboy: by your capitulation to stupid cunt SUZANNE, you've irreparably damaged this year's CBAs, and I see that you really only have a couple of choices that even remotely resemble trying to salvage something out of this.
Your first choice is to simply bag this year's awards. Seriously, you fucked them up and one obvious solution is to just admit it, trash this set and try again next year, preferably with some co-organizers who won't let you make such a mess of things.
Your other option is to simply hand this year's awards over to Canada's conservatives, and let them go wild and freep the living crap out of them. They can have all the fun they want, and invent whatever categories will amuse their tiny little minds. And, really, those are your only realistic options, since you've managed to screw the pooch so thoroughly on this.
Honestly, if I hadn't read it myself, I would never have believed it.
P.S. Still waiting for you to remove this blog from the nominations section.
P.P.S. Saskboy: If someone's opinion is enough for you to reject an award category, here's my input -- I don't think there should be a "Best Conservative Blog" category, given that there's not a single Canadian, right-wing blog that's worth a sack of weasel crap. I await your elimination of that category with bated breath.
