    Had you done that, I bet he’d have turned on you and you’d see the same nonsense we see here at OG or people like Little Miss Attilla, Cynthia Yockey and Cassandra see.

    Okay. *NOW* I understand what’s going on.

    There was a blogger for a while called “Ilyka Damen”. She was a feminist blogger who happened to have been conservative around 2002-2004/5ish. Exceptionally interesting writer.

    As the years passed, however, she experienced a great deal of betrayal on the part of (some of) the (not especially representative) dudes on the conservative part of the web (Jeff Goldstein, Mean Mr. Mustard, those kinda guys).

    She went from “of course America needs to take on the Taliban, it’s the feminist response” to being mocked as yet another chicky chick whenever she did the feminist thing with regards to, say,Westerners.

      If you have the time, do as Dave says and follow the yellow brick road. If you don’t have the time (and frankly, most people shouldn’t….dude’s really not worth anyone’s time), then don’t worry much about it. I suspect this will be the last anyone here needs to see this subject come up.Report

    Summary: this guy linked to Erin the Newscaster I’d Never Heard of, or something similar, to whore out his largely unread blog: , these two femme bloggers got annoyed: , inventor of “Rule Five” R. McCain piles in: , rather like Frankenstein attempting to destroy his monster, then Dave the ordinary gentleman mops up:
