Those damned feminists

What's Mallard raving about today?

Feminists, Hillary Clinton.

Mallard reveals his ignorance, with a special focus on his ignorance of the difference between actual feminism and the cartoonish fear-mongering feminism perpetuated by Republicans and their water carriers.

Despite the tattoo-sporting diesel dyke and the suggestion that feminists object to men helping them, the single most egregious idiocy on display is the idea that a woman who has a serious chance to become the first President of the United States has set feminism back 50 years.

You've got a long way to come, Mallard.

So women are mad at Hillary then? That would certainly explain why she wins the female vote in every election. Sheesh.

And what on Earth is that thing Mallard's wearing on his head?

while i agree that claiming clinton is setting feminism back 50 years is ludicrous, the general point about betraying the ideal of feminism is apt. clinton takes three steps forward for women, then two back.

exanonymous said...

What's the current complaint? Oh yeah, for a woman to be recognized she must do a man's job exactly as a would man only better.

Apparently the same will go for Hillary. She will not be allowed emotion, and she will not be allowed to ask for help from a previous successful expert.

Another anonymous post farting out a wild opinion, without any substantiation whatsoever, that quietly backs Tinny's utter nonsense. Hmm, I wonder if it should be taken seriously?

I suppose it should be taken about as seriously as Rush-worshipping Tinsley acting as the voice of what Rush still likes to call "feminazism." As DaveyK's already noted, Tinny still carefully depicts his feminist as a mean gorilla with a tattoo--and this time, the pencil she's holding is actually "erect." Wow.

Wooo, bad timing: right-wing lunatic pundit Kathleen Parker (who believes girls should be barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen--unless they're a right-wing lunatic pundit) castigated NOW for backing Clinton instead of Obama just three days ago. "Two-Weeks-Too-Late" Tinny fails again!

Remember: "crocodile tears" (not that Hillary actually shed tears) and using spouses in one's campaign is ONLY okay if you're a Republican.

Off-topic: I knew the moronic "economic stimulus" plan reminded me of something.

Note to Tinny:

It is better to keep your mouth closed and be thought an idiot than to open it and remove all doubt.

OMFG; we have another week of this sh*t until Valentine's Day.

It hurts, it hurts! Make it stop! Please!!!

Based on his depictions of women in the strip, I really would like to meet Tinshley's mother.

Kaitlyn said...

3:42 Anon - last night, I was convinced it already was Valentine's Day, wow, the month's almost over!

Except it wasn't.

That was just... amazing.

Now, I haven't been reading the feminazi blogs lately, what with schoolwork, and I don't watch the news (local or otherwise) if I can help it, so I can only go on what I think and know.

Feminists are probably not going to vote for Hillary if they disagree with her policy decisions, not because her FORMER PRESIDENT husband is there - hello, he won TWICE. I mean, duh! Your dad's a mechanic, your cousin's a computer wonk, somebody you know specializes in something you know shit about or has already done this - of course you're going to ask them for help!

Plus, the Clintons' marriage is a bit better than the republicans - both parties have equal roles - at least on the teevee, where Laura Bush smiles and smiles and smiles and smiles until her batteries die.

Off to school! Two female teachers, neither with a visible MOM tattoo. I don't know anyone with one besides Bart Simpson...

When did Billywitchdoctor become the sheriff here? I think anonymous makes a valid point; your cheerleading for Miss Hillary and scorn for Obama, who at least opposes the criminal war in Iraq, is sickening.

factinista said...

What? How is what Billywitchdoctor said "cheerleading?" The first Anonymous didn't say anything to back his opinion of Hillary at all, and Billy simply pointed out the absurdities of the right's depiction of feminism. And at least Hillary was able to see why the war was wrong, instead of just sticking with a bad choice to the end, like the majority of the Republican Congressmen.

Your strawman arguments are as stupid as ever, Bruce.

When I got my nifty glow-in-the-dark sheriff's badge in this here box of Cracker Jacks, varmint!

Extra! Extra! Anonymous comes to the defense of anonymous, saying anonymous has a valid point about Tinny having a valid point!

Except the original "valid" point was about how Hillary "takes three steps forward, then two back" for women and feminism, not about me, nor Hillary's stance on Iraq. So anonymous remains, sadly, so completely full of s*** it sprays out of anonymous' ears in a high-pressure stream.

Y'see, I'm not the sheriff around here. I just post my opinion, as does everyone else. Anonymous is just wee-wee-wee-all-the-waaaay-home because I keep shooting anonymous' complete nonsense down, and anonymous can't fight back on a level field.

(My thanks to Factinista, who wrote in while I was finishing this.)

Well, on the plus side, 2008-02-07 is no longer the duck's most badly written "poem" - and that is quite an accomplishment!

Michael said...

rewinn: Woah, woah, woah. It's a bad poem, but let's not get carried away here.

Hey, the anonymous guy posting about the anonymous guy had a point about ... um ... something. Liberals!

1st anonymous said...

i didn't realize that i had to back things up, but looking at the right good billywitchdoctor and all the evidence backing those posts, i stand corrected. my point is that the campaign of ms. clinton has had many moments that highlight her femininity while also expecting others to not attack said femininity. she gives a speech about how great it will be to be the first female president, but then says not to let it define her. she shows emotion, with which i have no problem, and takes the good press, yet shuns people calling her emotional. by using and then dismissing her gender she is failing to live up to the ideals of bring judged on character alone. i did not mean to offend and am no fan of MF's politics, but in fairness i never said i was. peace, love, and understanding.

12xuser said...

So, anyway, Tinsley uses a character whose cause he doesn't understand, let alone agree with, to make an argument that such a character would never make, implying that Clinton should agree with the argument of this character, but doesn't, so she's a hypocrite.

I think.

yes, i think you vary much correct

BillyWitchDoctor said...

she gives a speech about how great it will be to be the first female president, but then says not to let it define her

I fail to see the issue with this. Substitute "black" or any other descriptor for "female" and say it out loud. Use words that apply to you personally, and maybe the light will click on.

she shows emotion, with which i have no problem, and takes the good press, yet shuns people calling her emotional

Please provide an alternative to "takes the good press." Telling reporters they can only have a negative opinion of something? Do you think anything through?

Also, please note the difference between "showing a brief moment of emotion," and "emotional." Get a grown-up to explain it to you, if necessary. Once again, this is how the press has been playing it. How many other politicians have been treated thusly?

1st anonymous, you seriously suck at concern-trolling.

1st anonymous said...

thank you for your kind words billywitchdoctor. i know that name calling is beneath two adults such as ourselves, so thank you for avoiding them. i know now that not agreeing with you means i haven't thought things through, when you obviously have. because only one of us has taken time to think anything through i will now bow to your superior intellect. how dare someone call you out for trying to be the sheriff. you, billywitchdoctor, are the brain i sorely wish i had. sorry i suck so much.

BillyWitchDoctor said...

I detect...sarcasm? Sarcasm and deep butthurt. Not having a genuine response to the real questions raised in my reply, it's time to fall to the ground, clutching your elbow and screwing up your face and hoping someone will feel sorry for you. Wow, I've never seen that before.

And it's doubly funny because I'm fairly certain that's how you picture Hillary.

sorry i suck so much.

Hey, not a big deal. Now that you realize you have a problem, you can work towards fixing it--and then you'll be on your way to becoming a normal, productive human being. (Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and all that.)

Your turn!
