Snark Says Things About Marcotte
To repeat the obvious: Amanda Marcotte has shown us time and again exactly what kind of person she is. For example, she is morally capable of making such astounding statements as the following. Bear in mind while you are reading this, that it is a little thing which speaks large, for it clearly diagrams how Amanda Marcotte's mind operates. The mental "tool kit" that she employs in this paragraph is the same stock-in-trade that she brings to bear upon any job large or small:
"I had to listen to how the poor dear lacrosse players at Duke are being persecuted just because they held someone down and fucked her against her will—not rape, of course, because the charges have been thrown out. Can’t a few white boys sexually assault a black woman anymore without people getting all wound up about it? So unfair."All right Amanda: front and center! I'm talking to YOU, kiddo!
Here's what I want you to do: Open up a Pandagon editing window right NOW... and make clear to the entire non-feminist world exactly why you feel that the above-quoted statement is morally acceptable and cool!! Diagram the alien logic of it, if you please, for the benefit of us earthlings! Get busy, Amanda! If you have anything to say for yourself -- anything at all! -- then I am willing to listen. Explicate to us in hard, cold, precise terms why you are not a moral idiot -- because that is what a lot of people truly think you are! So make it sound believable. Get to work!
And let's not forget the following luscious bonbon, which Amanda posted on Slate.com and was later shamed (by me!) into removing. I reckon she was counting on an audience of her "peers", there at Slate.com, eh? She didn't think anybody but her peers would be peering at her -- but the eyes of the world are everywhere!
So . . . what's up with this, Amanda? Eh? Who the hell are you calling a rapist? Are you ready to stand behind your own words? Well, are you? Speak up for yourself, princess! And tell us why only a "tiny, inconsequential fraction" of rape accusations are false. What do you stake that claim upon? What is your fountain of knowledge on that subject? And what the hell is "inconsequential" about it, when a lying woman destroys an innocent man's life???
Amanda Marcotte, you don't give a rip-snort about the suffering of the innocent if the innocent happen to be male. DO you??
One more thing: not everybody thinks that you are "evil". Snark, for example, does not think this -- and I think you will benefit from his nuanced analysis of you, here:
