Just one more thing...

I wasn't going to say anything more because what I said here was enough. But since Lashawn is still saying things about it here and here, I thought, why not? I stand by my remarks and I am truly sorry for you if they seemed "way harsh and uncalled for" but they're true. And just like everyone else has a right to their opinion, I have the right to mine.

I certainly did not expect the overwhelming sentiment of support when I wrote this post refuting Lashawn's statements regarding women generally not having the sensibilities to lead the country or her "I don't care what you think but obviously you do" mantra. Neither did I expect any linkage or traffic increase just because I had put a few sentences together. And I definitely did not expect the petty venemous reaction from Lashawn because I disagreed with her. I expected better, but I guess that just means I was a little disappointed. I know better now.

Yes, in case you are wondering, I am the blog she is ominously referring to in her "update" of this post (and actually I guess I am one of the naysayers she is referring to in the other update on her post). And yes I was the catalyst to this "woe is me, they're picking on me" post as well. Which is fine.

But really, because I'd hate for her to worry about the "links" I'm giving her that will cause her to rise in her blessed ecosystem, I am now using basil's tried and true method of link directing. Click on every single link in this post and you'll go to where I am directing you to, but for those Lashawn links...the "credit" in the ecosystem will go to basil, who is brilliant.

Oh and don't go anywhere just yet, until you read this from Cake Eater Chronicles who is also brilliant.

And look around my blog, there are a lot of links and comments to people who agree with me that women are capable and willing to be leaders. I'm sure there are people out there who disagree with me too, and as always, you are more than welcome to comment and trackback to anything you take issue with. I don't mind that one bit.

And as always, comments are open.

You mean you won't delete relevent trackbacks and civil dissent? Why, you must be a very secure and confident blogger even though you're a lowly Large Mammal.

Gah, excuse the spelling error.

Well stated, Jody. Stand by your position, cause it is correct.

And, really, if LSB thinks that women do not have the sensibilities to run the country, then why should we listen to a women telling us anything, since she obviously doesn't have the sensibilities to formulate cogent policy?

Jody - you have more support than you realize. I've tried to put my own thoughts to the situation a few times but I just get down right irritated and put it away for the time being. But then why bother, right? I'm ONLY a crawly lil amphibian or slithering reptile depending on the day. :)

Well, my parting shot at the sinking brown lady was this comment, posted from work today (she didn't immediately ban my work IP address, but she did delete the first comment I left, and for all I know has deleted this one):

"After the thermonuclear holocaust, all that will be left is roaches and Tupperware. All Mortal Humans will be nothing more than radioactive vapor floating across the wasteland. And that's about all our collective opinions amount to."

I'm through with her sanctimonious airs.

Long live Steal the Bandwagon--and all us other "roaches" of the ecosystem!!!

Jeff-- I will pay you to never ever write or say "Long live Steal the Bandwagon" again...please. No war cries or pep rallies required here, I promise. LOL. :)

I dont know whats more strange, the attitidue that women are *inferior* to men or the BANNING of the contrary comments.

The stupid remark is just so stupid its stupid. But the banning is....bizarre. Talk about your echo chamber. Its rather disengenuous to delete opposing comments.

from Jane, who has a foreign goverment trolling her and lets every comment go through even the ones that say Im really a Yemeni man employed by the CIA or the docile pupil of a monkey monk or a Mason.

I suspect that woman started a blog war for the exposure. That ecosystem is pure bullshit - the way it rewards link whoring.

Does this mean she can't join the Cotillion now? Darn.
