Hold strong, Libyans.
The official tumblr of the fake thewetmale: previously an anonymous troll & faceless blogger, now a feminist CIA agent, proud mother of 3.2 kids, post-partisan rationalist, noted tumblrer, respected mainstream publisher, social media guerrilla, founder of Statler-Waldorf research, OAM, and 5 Walkleys. #OhDeb. Also since September 9th, 2011, has been living proof that the use of real names doesn't prevent trolling.

My other places:
By the way, it’s the women’s fault. … It’s, apparently, the women in the Obama administration who have decided we needed to go to war in Libya. … This is typical. This is so typ— i’m mean, I’m going to bring my inner sexist out I’m afraid tonight, some of you are going to be very upset with me. But this is like women drivers. We’re going to war in Libya, we have no plan, we have no map, even if we have a map of war, um, it wasn’t going to get read, they were going to pull over and ask the French apparently for help, or at least make the guy pull over and ask the French for help. This is crazy….
This is just silly. I mean, back-seat driving by the women, and they’re gonna get Barack Obama lost. What is it with Barack Obama caving to the women? I mean, now we know who rules his personal life. I guess Michelle is firmly in charge as well, if Barack Obama is going to cave that easy to three women in his administration over what to do with Libya….
I don’t have the energy to get into a lengthy dissection of this, and it’s so ridiculous that I wouldn’t even know where to start. But I always find it interesting the way that outspoken sexists juxtapose women in positions of power to women in either their relationships, or the object of discussion’s relationship. (Bill Maher is notorious for this.)
He went from a sexist analogy of women in the administration being bad drivers to directly comparing it to the alleged power unbalance in Obama’s marriage. I think it speaks volumes about the speaker’s view of women in general - not as authorities in their own field (like Clinton, Rice, or Power) but as the nagging wives.
This is a form of insanity. Apparently, given that the Internet allows you to voice your opinion, and given that you know intrinsically that your opinion is racist, sexist, what-have-you, you go ahead and voice it anyway. This needs to go in the DSM-V.

Comment on this post: “I love the women flip out about this. Yes of course we’d think that. It’s not because we want them in the kitchen, it’s because biologically they are more compassionate and less violent. It’s not complicated. It’s basic science - estrogen, testosterone, etc. I love when people pretend to be offended like it’s not true.”
HOW CAN PEOPLE BE SO OBJECTIVELY, INCREDIBLY WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS AND STILL BELIEVE THEIR VIEWS ARE WORTH SHARING? AND MOREOVER, THAT THEY’RE FUCKING RIGHT?
W - O - W. I hope this guy isn’t married.
(Also, could we avoid the ableism please? Speaking as someone who is mentally ill, I’d like it if people would stop claiming those who express racist, sexist, etc., sentiments which are largely condoned by society are mentally ill. You can call them out on inappropriate behavior without calling them insane.)
Seconding Chonklatime re mental illness.
Admittedly, now i think about it, it’s surprising some goose didn’t blame Obama’s uncertainty on Egypt and Libya as being because he was too influenced by women. There would seem more sexist troupes available for that line of thinking than the opposite. Then again, logic and what is sensible hardly matter.
Hold strong, Libyans.
I’m so sorry that when Rudd was trying to organise a no-fly zone, commentators from both sides of politics asked how it was at all in our national interests.
I’m so sorry that it’s apparently not in the international interest to help those being slaughtered by a tyrant, even when directly asked by those people for just an inkling of support.
I’m so sorry that we claim to love the concepts of freedom and democracy but our international community is so fraught with the graft and scum of a lecherous system that consumes and destroys everything it touches.
I’m so sorry you were sold on high minded concepts of liberty, democracy and a love of freedom that we obviously do not think you deserve.
I’m so sorry that I was so deluded, glued to AJE, that I read the Libya live blog every day, that I had such faith that for once, for once the west could live up to its moral imperative and help those in the third world achieve liberty.
I’m so sorry that the US could have lead the charge and lionised the international community to promote support, but did not.
Col Gaddafi, in an interview, said Germany, Russia and China would now be rewarded with business deals and oil contracts.
I’m so sorry our Governments think your lives aren’t worth more than this.
I’m so sorry that in a few months this is all going to be forgotten.
