You lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas
Attention conservative men who wish to comment on my blog! You are welcome here, but if you choose to address me in that tone that sexist men use when speaking to women, particularly young women, a tone that indicates that you are setting the silly, misguided female straight, you will get mocked on my blog. Like this comment on my sexual freedom is a family value post:
"Conservatives advance the idea that sex and birth control are bad . . ."I gave up reading any further because if someone really, truly believes that it the conservative position (no pun intended) then they are absolutely clueless. Conservatism ain't your grandpa's conservatism anymore folks. You're absolutely clueless.
I shan't waste energy on mocking the ridiculousness of calling someone clueless when you can't be bothered to continue to read on long enough to find out that I was describing the lopsided nature of the debate, since the irony of that is easy enough to grasp for the bright, witty people who I am lucky enough to have stop by my blog.
But if you persist in engaging in this kind of willful ignorance, then I will have to set you straight. The Republican party openly caters to the anti-sex brigade. Your party can barely win an election, and certainly not a presidential election, without drumming up huge amounts of anti-sex hysteria. You and Andrew Sullivan can sit around smugly pretending that this won't come back to bite you on the ass, but I'm here to tell you--lay down with dogs, get up with fleas. Don't want to be seen as part of the anti-sex brigade? Quit giving them your money and your vote.
