sex in the cashmere jungle

i just sat through one episode of "lipstick jungle" and one episode of "cashmere mafia" with a creamy center of "sex and the city" sandwiched in between. briefly, the new shows are more akin to "desperate housewives take manhattan" than they are like the original. you can't help but notice, however, that the skeletal white women on these shows have all gotten themselves a skeletal asian woman for a friend. is diversity-as -accessory racist?

for further consideration, one show featured a filipino-dominican lesbian as villain, while the other went with a black trannie. of course the biggest bad guys of all were very wealthy whites.

small children, racists?

in another life, i teach ballet to small children. last night at dance school a little 5-year-old girl ran out after a class with her new (black) teacher and threw her arms around the legs of her previous (white) teacher. "i miss you so much. i want you to come back. i don't like the brown ones. i only like white ones."

always a dependable post - pat robertson

"Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history."

"(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." –

see now I feel stuck - because despite the fact that I hate to admit it, I am a feminist. That said I figure I better not have kids because I'd kill them...but if I don't have kids doesn't that reenforce the feminist agenda that kills children?

“If English was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for Texas”

yes this is the quote from "ma ferguson" - once governor of Texas - she was responding to students learning Spanish in the classroom.

this is also on one of many "stupidest things ever said" lists.

Nicked from my LiveJournal buddy, XTerminal:

As XTerminal says: "Someone is getting SO fired."

Ethnic Excitement: The Ice Cream.

Again, courtesy of Crooks and Liars:

I still vote for "Ethnic Excitement" as porn genre, but that's pretty funny.
