I like the term Mansplain woo Woo

This is posted in HOF - don't confuse it with another thread

So who else uses it?

I think it's an excellent way to to sum up an experience that is very unique to women.

It's one of those things that is just between us.

What am I missing here? And what does it have to do with any real issues . . .

Like I don't know - the recent ruling by the Scrotum Five on the SCOTUS <----because those men all have scrotums . . . Or equal pay. Or Voting Rights.


You know - things that actually matter to women and what I believe is a silent majority of men at DU.


So here you go - lets take the power back and control the conversation. If you like the terminology Mansplain to sum up what you have experienced in life. And if you refuse to stop using it becase it would take energy and effort to do so - energy and effort better spent on getting pro women's rights candidates elected this fall-

Check in.

Your time will be better focused here.

Agreed

Thats why I trashed thread titles with the following keywords: NSA, Snowden, Greenwald

I'm bored with the outrage so I made it go away.

The closing paragraph says a great deal



This, to me, is the deepest significance of reparations. People who think this is just a matter of giving black things vastly underestimate the challenge. Reparations may seem impractical. Living without history, I suspect, will—in the long term—prove to be suicidal


I can't wait to read his follow up blogs on this.

Ultimately - I grow frustrated with the reminiscing about singing mighty freedom sings during the Civil Rights movement. I suspect many people are. That American experience changed only so much - and left a great deal undone. Because the social construct itself was never challenged. And well - it made black Americans full citizens without making us full human beings.

Those Missing Nigerian School Girls

Nigerians Despair as Search for Girls Stalls

Frustration Mounts as Students Remain Missing Despite American Intelligence Effort; Boko Haram Takes Bolder Steps



In the two months since the U.S. said it would park a small number of surveillance craft in nearby Chad. U.S. intelligence specialists have spent the past month methodically piecing together a broad, so-called baseline portrait of northeastern Nigeria's topography, human geography, road networks and population centers, said one Washington-based adviser to U.S. intelligence agencies who is involved in the effort. It encompasses things like topography, human geography, road networks and population centers.

Nigeria's military says that it has the manpower and will to push back Boko Haram—and that it mainly lacks intelligence the drones can deliver. But such intelligence gathering can take months, even years, before yielding actionable leads, said Col. Leighton and this adviser. America's limited experience in Nigeria's countryside, where hundreds of languages are spoken, also presents an obstacle, both said.

"The first hours are critical" in a kidnapping, said J. Peter Pham, director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think tank. "Beyond that, trails go cold. And that's where the reality is. By the time social media caught onto this, it was well too late."

The U.S. military may also be reluctant to share sensitive raw intelligence with a Nigerian army whose soldiers have been accused of leaking information to Boko Haram insurgents, according to the adviser.


It was hard to find the right words/4 paragraphs - but what struck me the most is that we - the US are 'piecing' together basic information that appears in the CIA World Fact Book.

My heart breaks for those families - because I think those girls are lost forever.
