Missing the point

In Megan's rant about our prime motivating factor, sexism, we have a comment by albo that I think deserves an award for missing the point entirely.

I remind you, reader, that Megan was ranting about sexist stereotypes being applied to her. In response, albo poops:

Progressives seem to be tied in closely with their emotions. They're at the girl end of the reaction spectrum--when they read you it quickly becomes their time of the month. They can't help but react with their viscera.

Reminds me of the time that I was in a Human Resources sexual harassment prevention training at work, and we had to judge the offensive nature of various scenarios. One scenario involved an elderly person being greeted with black balloons and a card that read "You are over the hill!" A fellow employee in the training who emitted weirdness said, "oh, well only women get offended by that kind of stuff." I kid you not.

What a load of horseshit. The only thing remotely alluding to her femininity and not her bullshit writing was Edroso using the word "lipstick" as an adjective. So what? If he had picked on only female bloggers, or suggested that their idiocy had anything remotely to do with their gender and not their arrogance, bad arguments, conceit, or atrocious abuse of the English language, she'd have a point. But he went after men and women equally. I suspect if he had gone after only men, the argument would be he was sexist for excluding the gals. Megan just can't get over being criticized and has managed to convince herself that her boobs are the only reason it happens.

"Progressives seem to be tied closely with their emotions." Damn straight, fucker. I wouldn't have it any other way. And it's not even "my time of the month."
