Quote# 88311

Female writers have done so much in the last two hundred years to destroy the things that are most important to ordinary women that a case is to be made for a period of prolonged female silence similar to the days when the best women authors wrote with male pseudonyms. As a female writer, I would happily oblige if it meant that the vast majority of feminist harpies would retire or perhaps start a writers’ colony on a deserted island.

This is slightly tragic.

A woman writing under a man's name is still a woman, you moron.

When the Bronte sisters were published as Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell, the substance of what they had written was not one whit different than when it was known what they were. But I agree, Ms. Wood, that the moral climate might be improved if you were to shut up.

By your logic, you need to stop writing right now, get your ass in the kitchen, and make your husband a sandwich. Because if you're going to be a self-hating anti-feminist, you might as well go all the way.

_________By Laura Wood, not using a male pseudonym.


Or is this Mister Wood, pretending?

All right: I'll bite. Tell me one thing important to ordinary women that was destroyed by feminism?

What things that are most important to ordinary women are destroyed?

One of my favorite authors, Jane Austen (who wrote under the pseudonym "a lady"), died less than two hundred years ago, but most of her books were written more than 200 years ago. She did much to show what strong women could do for their own happiness, and how bad life could become for weak and silly women. Is it things like that which have been destroyed in the last 200 years?

I don't think that was what you meant, somehow...

This is coming from the man who is using a female pseudonym for the purposes of sockpuppeting... As if more proof was needed that conservatives are lying liars who lie.

Still, the very fact that it is in America overwhelmingly where reactionaries have their voice suggests that America has become an unholy amalgamation of three of the worst governments in history: the Roman empire, the British empire, and the Islamic Republic of Iran. All three of them loved religion and the wealthy, and despised learning and any programs to better society. The US combines the worst traits of all three. "Land of the free", my ass.

Laura Wood, still thinking the thoughts others have put in her head.

(Or is there evidence that "she" is actually written by a man?)

Once again Laura Wood proves the title of her blog is a complete farce.

Ordinary woman would love to live two hundred years ago - NOT.

Keep in mind Laura is a man using a female pseudonym NOW. Of course she'd oblige! It'd mean she'd be using her real name again! Think of all the confusion that would clear up for the two brain cells he's got left!

So because a certain group of women say crazy things, we should prevent all women from speaking or writing?

Can we apply this to religious fundies too?

Meeeh

"The Thinking Housewife" - I like how they use the exact opposite of what they are meme as a slogan!

That woman ash to be the most non-thinking woman I have ever read something from.

I thought housewives weren't supposed to think. Get back in the kitchen bitch.

Just went to check out to blog. Goddamn! Some people are so messed up. One person was complaining about the child of a lesbian couple wanting to play with her children and another poster suggested shunning one of the parents because of her tattoos! Tattoos for crying out loud! Jeez, this world will be so much better off after the monotheistic religions die out.

Female writers have done so much ... to destroy the things that are most important to ordinary women

Joanne K. Rowling, Dorothy Sayers, Agatha Christie?

Really?

Clearly the thinking housewife doesn't think about what she believes.

God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world... Turns out the world is round. Wonder if that's supposed to mean something.

Other than "God is a troll", I mean.

Shut up Laura and take off your shoes, get pregnant, and make me a dagwood sandwich bitch before I get to steppin' on your ass.
