I saw mentions of this quinnox post re black hair styles

Thats unfortunate - seriously unfortunate.

ETA - I realize you can't answer in this thread anymore - but I wonder if he realized Halle cheated? She had her nose narrowed to be more acceptable to the dominant culture - and it was perfectly fine as it was.

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.

You should trash the key words

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.

Are you the guy that's calling me?

Who are you Mr. Hudgins and what precisely do you want.
