in the heat of the election, i read kos every day (hence the link on my blogroll). but after the election, during all the post-mortems, i started noticing an alarming trend: more and more calls from the boys' treehouse over there to take a step back from abortion rights because it's so 'narrow' and 'single-issue' and scares the moderates out there. hm. it mirrored the mewling backpedaling going on in the democratic party at the time and it enraged me so much, i stopped reading so regularly. now, to be honest, i stop over only to check out the big-boy gossip. it really is like a tabloid magazine of what's going on at the DNC. infighting, schisms, breakups, hookups.
well, the 'no girls allowed' sign on the daily kos tree house gets good treatment in the comments section over at Bitch. Ph.D.
and here is a very good (and angry) diary on kos telling him to stuff his 'abortion isn't really important to our strategy' up his ass.
update: here is the original post (with his update) that started the whole thing. um, check out the references to 'sanctimonious,' 'humorless' , 'extremist subset' and 'important shit' (as if to say that feminist concerns aren't important compared to masculinist strategies and shit like that.)
know your fucking feminist history, kos. [deleted because even i recognize what i said made no sense.]
update 2: since the original post humorless, women-studies types and unshaven hags alike have weighed in and found kos, his treehouse and his posse wanting. heh.
