Our old friend Isabel is OUTRAGED!!!11!!ELEVENTY!!11111!!!11!! that the radical feminists at I Blame The Patriarchy are not paying enough attention to the plight of poor white women. While she is still somehow managing to control herself, it is only a matter of time before she goes apeshit:
“trying to claim that it’s all about class”
Trying to bring class into the discussion=trying to claim nothing else exists?
“You’re playing Oppression Olympics, with class being the worst offender.”
Where did I say it was the worst offender? How did saying we should not ignore something turn into me saying it’s the WORST thing ever? How do you get that?
Which is worse – to be considered an angry sex-crazed animal or a pathetic slutty piece of trash? How does someone decide something like that, and why would they even want to?
It seems it’s YOU who are saying it’s all about race. When I counter that class should not be ignored, as it generally is, I’m accused of saying that it’s a BIGGER issue or the ONLY issue.
Why do we have to decide which is the worse thing? Wouldn’t THAT be playing oppression olympics? Actually, the last election finally convinced me that being born female is the worst thing, but that’s just my personal opinion, which no one has actually asked for.
Do you really believe that if a poor white “trash” woman goes missing the police will look for her (and her little dog too) and the media will tearfully report it? Or an old white widow? Or an ugly white lesbian? Why do you lump all white people into one category? Are we all alike to you?
Lacie and Scot Peterson were an extremely photogenic young couple living beyond their means (not some shabby Canarsians) and she was about to give birth to their first child when she disappeared, among many other iconic elements to the story. And, most importantly to this discussion, we all knew, as the police did, that she was dead from the first report.
