Women Urged To Rise Up Against FITS

This website is a big, blunt instrument providing raw, penetrating insights … insights that go deep. Very deep. We’re also all about repetition. And endurance. And consistency … Of course our raw, penetrating and consistent bluntness often has its drawbacks, like our repeated reference to 1990s-era Feminazi gender card players…

This website is a big, blunt instrument providing raw, penetrating insights … insights that go deep. Very deep. We’re also all about repetition. And endurance. And consistency …

Of course our raw, penetrating and consistent bluntness often has its drawbacks, like our repeated reference to 1990s-era Feminazi gender card players as “irascible vaginas.”

Is that description over the top? Probably …

But it makes our point: Namely that gender – like race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, etc. – should never be an issue in supporting or opposing anything or anyone in politics. Seriously, trading on such distinctions does a disservice to both the individual making the stink and the broader issue that’s up for discussion.

Like the magazine George said over a decade ago, “there’s no gay way to fill a pot hole.”

Anyway, our commentary has apparently enraged the authors of the Feminazi blog Tell Them, which took strong objection to our recent use of the “irascible vagina” term in describing Ginny Deerin, a female activist livid at the S.C. General Assembly for not appointing enough women to boards and commissions.

Never mind that this website has repeatedly championed the elimination of the vast majority of these commissions – which serve as islands of unnecessary, unaccountable government in a state government that’s already far too big for its britches. And never mind that this website actually ran a guest column from one of the women allegedly discriminated against in this appointment process – a woman who agrees with our contention that it was legislative nepotism, not gender discrimination, that cost her the appointment she coveted.

Oh, and never mind that we have consistently opposed such nepotism … 

In spite of all this, Tell Them is livid at our sexist “venom and vitriol” – and is disappointed more people haven’t called us out for it.

“Where ARE the women?” one of the group’s leaders writes in railing against our article. “When did we decide to ignore attacks such as this on good women like Ginny Deerin? Where are we, and what are we doing that is more important than standing against this sort of uncalled-for, public, misogynistic attack?”

Specifically, the website notes that there were “twenty-two comments … posted to this female-demeaning article” but only one of them tapped into the “appropriate level of outrage.”

According to Tell Them, the use of offensive terms is especially galling in this case given our founding editor’s colorful past.

“Especially by this dude, who plead guilty in 2005 to criminal domestic violence towards his former fiancée,” she notes. “Especially by this guy, who has written his own vagina monologue since 2005, promoting himself as the man really behind our current governor (if you know what I mean).”

Wait … didn’t Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie) just answer a question about the governor’s behind? What is it with people focusing in on Nikki Haley’s backside this week?

Anyway, as fate would have it there are two cases pending in Richland County (S.C.) family court with the potential to vindicate our founding editor on both of these issues (most notably this one) but then again vindication isn’t something we’re overly concerned about.

We flat don’t worry about it …

What else do we not worry about? The acceptance of a bunch of whiny Feminazis who fail to realize their increasingly shrill bitching and moaning is doing more to hurt them – and the candidates and causes they advance – than it hurts us.

As one of our liberal columnists herself has noted …

Translation? Put your big girl panties on, ladies. Or don’t … (we subscribe to the Vladimir Putin school of responding to female protests). But either way, figure out that the path to credibility comes from being credible, not by being a woman.

FITS has a Pro-Abortionist, Pro-Terrorist, Pro-Affirmative Action and Pro-Democrat Slant…
These Femenists would be ignorant to try to discount your product.

FITS said Romney would be same as the Failed, and Horrible Obama…

Liberal women and FITS are exactly the same…

PS: If femenists give FITS much thought, it shows there is really NOTHING left for leftwing, radical femenists to protest…

People who are that easily offended are weak. They want you to control their own emotions for them because they obviously can’t do it themselves.

People like that will probably never understand satire either.

As I said years ago, as the father of a daughter you should care about contributing to a demeaning atmosphere for her to grow up in.
But, you have shown no evidence that you are capable of the kind of insight that would lead a normal person to consider the effects of your words on your daughter as she grows…and, you can never get rid of them.
Your children will have to grow up and live with what you produce and it won’t be pleasant for them.

Gender roles are screwy in many ways today compared to just 100 years ago.

Women have on one hand the desires for “equality”-which is defined different ways by different people, but on the other hand sometimes like being “unequal” in certain circumstances.

For instance, one might say a women should be afforded the opportunity to fight on the front lines just like men. Voting might be a less controversial example of said equality. A more controversial “equality” might be the desire for the same pay in the workplace, even if there are more risks at times to employing a women over a man…or if they are unable to perform physically as much as a man in a menial job yet expect the same pay.

Women like the idea of being treated equal, but if you use language that some men in some circles use around them they might get offended, and even go so far as to say not use such language around a “lady”(and men make that argument too!).

Women like having doors opened for them(I do it), it wasn’t long ago men were expected to stand when women entered a room in formal situations…sometimes I still do that.

That is ALL not “equal” treatment….

Sometimes I wonder if what some women want is to pick and choose where they want their “equality”.(not all of them)

Let the stone throwing begin. :)

I would agree with much of what you said ?. The thing that irks me personally more than anything in the gender wars is most feminazis will point to the song (or comments, situations that are similar) that asks ‘Where have all the cowboys gone?’.
But when you behave like a cowboy in front of one, regardless of their personal involvement in a situation, you are called a misogynist pig or any number of other similar typecasts. I once saw a very young woman throw a rock at a guy for holding the door open for a lady.

Until women get it through their heads that, generally, men don’t want to be equals. We enjoy doing things for women. Christians/Religious folk will call it Godly/Muslimy/Buddhaly (whatever). Atheists might say gentlemanly (note the concatenation of Gentle and Man). An evolutionist would note something to the effect of this being a male form of portraying himself as the Alpha Male. Any way you slice it, Men enjoy being helpful.

When a woman throws this back in my face, assume they want to be treated as equals. Fine, your not a woman anymore. Now you’re an equal. Be prepared to bring that Alpha Dog out bitch. It’s a very rough world for men.

It use to be cavalier/charismatic for a man to say “I fight so you don’t have to”. Say something like that today and you’re just as likely to get owned by some feminazi judge somewhere.

When you start going around taking pictures of the males’ backsides at the Statehouse and making comments on them, the shoes the men are wearing and commenting, and calling the men names equally as demeaning (ie: cranky penises), then perhaps women won’t be so angry.

The inherent difference of course, is that a website that featured lecherous shots of Statehouse men with lewd commentary about their physical attributes(which happens here @ Fits btw) more so than women simply wouldn’t be as successful or as popular. There’s simply an inherent psychological difference between most men and women.

That’s aside from the fact most secure men wouldn’t give a crap if they were “demeaned” on some website filled with anonymous commenters…they would just call everyone involved an asshole and move on.

Let me be clear. This website is sexist. The comments about women by Will and
the other posters here are frequently offensive to intelligent women.
Likewise the pictures of women in swimsuits, pumping gas, and in hottest lawyer
contests, etc., followed by the barrage of sexist comments is equally
offensive; even though I contend women should reserve some of their ire for the women who allow their pictures to be used in that manner. Perhaps those who do so deserve the lack of,or should I say type of, respect they get?

All That said, my question to the folks at Tell Them is; Why are you surprised? This is a
conservative website, targeting a conservative Republicans audience. Conservative Republicans and their Stepford wives have little use for women outside the house. So don’t be offended. Consider the source.

So either debate your detractors or ignore them; but engage them at the voting booth. Because when added to all the other groups “conservative” Republicans have no use for, you make up a majority of the electorate. So in an echo from the past just let them hear you roar in numbers too large to ignore, because making them irrelevant is the only thing that will earn you the respect you want.

“Conservative Republicans and their Stepford wives have little use for women outside the house.”

Of course there are no genuinely conservative women to a liberal. The idea that any woman who disagrees with you politically is a Stepford wife is just too ignorant to justify more than mockery. But this is what passes for an argument from the left these days. My conservative, PhD holding, professional of a wife had a stronger reaction, but decorum prevents me from reprinting it here.

Reply
Jan May 30, 2013 at 6:23 pm

Just because many conservative Republicans have Stepford wives does not mean all Republicans have Stepford wives, and nothing in my comments could possibly be read to imply every woman who disagrees with me is a Stepford wife. I would assume however that the Stepford wives of conservative Republicans would disagree with me on the Republican party views women and minorities.

Reply
CL May 31, 2013 at 7:15 am

You created a dichotomy between Republicans and their Stepford wives. Unless you were envisioning a large number of accomplished, conservative lesbians in the former, it is fairly obvious that the “conservative Republicans” in your post are exclusively men. That leaves only one status left per you for a woman who votes Republican to fit – Stepford wife. But keep spinning; it is even more ridiculous than your original point.

Reply
Jan May 31, 2013 at 9:56 am

Your logic is flawed, as usual. I do not deny the existence of conservative Republican Women who are not dominated by conservative Republican men. Some have a personal reason for voting Republican; and some may even think people like Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney,Todd Aiken, and Richard Mourdock would be good for women, bless their hearts.

CL May 31, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Yet you cannot explain any flaw in it, since I was just quoting you.

“Some have a personal reason for voting Republican; and some may even think people like Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney,Todd Aiken, and Richard Mourdock would be good for women bless their hearts.”

This is just as condescending and insulting. They must have some “personal” reason for voting Republican or be misguided. No one could have sound, ideological bases for voting Republican. Or have concluded from a wealth of historical evidence that it is so-called progressive policies that harm the poor and women, while conservatives (admittedly most elected Republicans are squishy on this point) champion the American model that made us the most prosperous nation in the history of the world.

Thank you for being the poster child for everything that’s wrong win the feminist movement. You SAY you’re all about a woman’s freedom to choose her own life, yet you bash women who choose to live their lives in a way YOU don’t approve. Your form of feminism isn’t about equality or respect, it’s about control. It just pisses you irascible vaginas off more than anything to see attractive women living happy, fulfilling lives married to loving husbands raising beautiful children.

Feel free to bitch about your own miserable life. But let the more mentally stable, successful, happy, beautiful women live the life they CHOOSE.

I am quite happy. I have a great spouse, beautiful children and a moderately successful business. Some even think I’m not bad looking. I don’t care what other women do with their life. And as far as what I would say to young women who allow men to post sexually suggestive pictures of them on the internet for other men to comment on, I doubt it is far from what my grandmother would have told young women of her time about girls who pose for dirty magazines.

Let me be clear. This website is sexist. The comments about women by Will and
the other posters here are frequently offensive to intelligent women.
Likewise the pictures of women in swimsuits, pumping gas, and in hottest lawyer
contests, etc., followed by the barrage of sexist comments is equally
offensive; even though I contend women should reserve some of their ire for the women who allow their pictures to be used in that manner. Perhaps those who do so deserve the lack of,or should I say type of, respect they get?

All That said, my question to the folks at Tell Them is; Why are you surprised? This is a
conservative website, targeting a conservative Republicans audience. Conservative Republicans and their Stepford wives have little use for women outside the house. So don’t be offended. Consider the source.

So either debate your detractors or ignore them; but engage them at the voting booth. Because when added to all the other groups “conservative” Republicans have no use for, you make up a majority of the electorate. So in an echo from the past just let them hear you roar in numbers too large to ignore, because making them irrelevant is the only thing that will earn you the respect you want.

I think this website’s editor is sexist. But he does have female contributors that are not, based on what they’ve written.

“Conservative Republicans and their Stepford wives have little use for women outside the house.”

Of course there are no genuinely conservative women to a liberal. The idea that any woman who disagrees with you politically is a Stepford wife is just too ignorant to justify more than mockery. But this is what passes for an argument from the left these days. My conservative, PhD holding, professional of a wife had a stronger reaction, but decorum prevents me from reprinting it here.

Just because many conservative Republicans have Stepford wives does not mean all Republicans have Stepford wives, and nothing in my comments could possibly be read to imply every woman who disagrees with me is a Stepford wife. I would assume however that the Stepford wives of conservative Republicans would disagree with me on the Republican party views women and minorities.

CL May 31, 2013 at 7:15 am

You created a dichotomy between Republicans and their Stepford wives. Unless you were envisioning a large number of accomplished, conservative lesbians in the former, it is fairly obvious that the “conservative Republicans” in your post are exclusively men. That leaves only one status left per you for a woman who votes Republican to fit – Stepford wife. But keep spinning; it is even more ridiculous than your original point.

Your logic is flawed, as usual. I do not deny the existence of conservative Republican Women who are not dominated by conservative Republican men. Some have a personal reason for voting Republican; and some may even think people like Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney,Todd Aiken, and Richard Mourdock would be good for women, bless their hearts.

CL May 31, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Yet you cannot explain any flaw in it, since I was just quoting you.

“Some have a personal reason for voting Republican; and some may even think people like Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney,Todd Aiken, and Richard Mourdock would be good for women bless their hearts.”

This is just as condescending and insulting. They must have some “personal” reason for voting Republican or be misguided. No one could have sound, ideological bases for voting Republican. Or have concluded from a wealth of historical evidence that it is so-called progressive policies that harm the poor and women, while conservatives (admittedly most elected Republicans are squishy on this point) champion the American model that made us the most prosperous nation in the history of the world.

Think it is about time the Ladies change tactics

Tell Them’s Executive Director should send a small package to the wife of every married male cockroach in the Legislature

The contents to include an 8 oz. tube of SuperGlue with short but simple instructions to glue the cockroach’s pecker to his leg. If his pecker ain’t long enough to reach his leg, then glue the opening of his pecker shut

If this doesn’t bring the cockroach around to get in touch with his feminine side, then send a follow up package with a small but extremely sharp ceramic knife and a bottle of Iodine

Two guys were standing at

“Why, that’s right,” said the
other guy in surprise.

“And I’ll bet that you were
circumcised when you were three days old.”

“Right again, but how’d you —-“

“And I’ll bet it was done by old
Doc Sternberg.”

“Well, yes, but how did you know?”
asked the second guy in amazement.

“Well, Old Doc always cut them at
a sixty-degree angle,” explained the first guy, “and you’re pissing on my shoe.”

Advocating rewarding accident of birth–being a woman–over achievement and qualification, and rewarding it with power. Sort of like the good old boys club of white men that you are seeking to replace with women, or the bald nepotism that we witness instead. It will necessarily breed resentment and people will question whether those advanced are qualified or are an affirmative action token. I expect you’ll tough it out. We’re all for driving out the crooks, and there is some good stuff on your facebook page. Yet only 179 signatures on your petition, and 120 facebook likes. I expect those numbers will grow with this exposure. FITS was the first place I heard of you.

I get that you want to create controversy for hits, Will – but this is just pitiful for a dude who otherwise has an agenda that is actually worth a sh*t. Tell Them has a single goal – educate kids in an age-appropriate way about sex (like we do math and history….) I know, you think we shouldn’t have public schools to begin with, and sex should be parental territory. Unfortunately, parents are failing so miserably that it costs SC taxpayers nearly 20 billion dollars to support your precious idealism. And, since many kids who are sexually abused are victims of their parents, compassionate society has a duty to protect and educate children outside of the home. You know, to have the society that you champion – people free to make their own decisions (remember Adam Smith and all that stuff you learned in school?) they need to have good information on which to act, not just grunt around and gratify their immediate interest. The Tell Them/New Morning Foundation folks, regardless of today’s tiny little blog that supposedly causes you so much consternation, aren’t riled up about FITS at all, as I’ve rarely heard y’all mentioned outside of your juvenile misinformed twitter bs. And I’ll add this – the ladies at Tell Them and their incredible footwear are hotter by a country mile than the skanks on this site – but that’s just me! Emile DeFelice

They didn’t have shit to say about the insane lead up to Governor Haley’s election from this website. Had FITS been doing that to a liberal candidate, it would have been the end of the world as we know it. But they were silent. When men in the mainstream media sexistly (?) attacked Sarah Palin, more silence. Condi Rice, the last real head of the State Dept. we’ve had was attacked with horrible sexism, even more silence. And when the Fowlers used the super-delegate maneuver to oust Hilary and replace her with an unqualified affirmative action candidate, silence except from the PUMA’s, who got no support and apparently disappeared. They are just playing at politics under the guise of being pro-woman, it is transparently one-sided and 100% partisan. To Tell Them: stick to teaching kids to put a condom on a cucumber and leave poor FITS alone. Maybe you can work on advancing women in law, like getting a female chief justice in SC–wait, already done. Or maybe getting the first female woman of color elected governor of South Carolina–oops, already done.

And I’m going to repeat this: Barbara Rackes has the respect of nearly everyone in this state because she NEVER whines, she ignores pettiness as being beneath her and it is, she has never come out as offended, and supports both sides of the aisle. I’m sure she’s a Democrat, but I know for a fact that she puts that aside in aiming for more women in political office. THAT is why she has credibility, and is effective.

I take most of what Sic says on the topic of women as satire and only take issue when it strikes as damaging to his children and wife. Maybe he thinks public ogling of a Beth Bernstein or whomever is “safe” but a wife and daughter can’t help but make distorted comparisons. I don’t think any wife likes to be reminded that their spouse is a player, former or otherwise, but maybe this is a perspective of what some may pigeonhole as a “vanilla” wife. Maybe Mrs. Sic takes a broader view.

Margaret Thatcher never complained about this bullshit, and every single issue of Private Eye ripped her and her husband during her tenure. When you insist on playing identity politics you will end up losing and being ridiculed. If you insist on defining yourself by your genitalia rather than your accomplishments and credentials and principles, then don’t be surprised when others follow suit and play your game and identify you by your…genitalia, and ignore your accomplishments and credentials and principles. I’m unclear on exactly what sort of ‘stand’ they expect to take on FITS. A harshly worded letter, perhaps? Calling for advertisers to pull out of supporting FITS, like they are now doing with Facebook? More fascist speech codes? More hand wringing over the First Amendment? Sharia-like laws that no one can be allowed to offend them? I guess your irascible vaginer illustration is the Mohamed cartoon for feminist dinosaurs. A fatwah will be issued shortly, no doubt. All of this hoo-ha over a guy that calls himself Sic Willie, and yet the real ‘Slick Willie,’ Bill Clinton the date rapist is a hero. Go figure that the irony is lost on the easily offended.
