Catching Up with Blog Goodness

It is interesting the people who mistake me for the story. Read the comments, like:

–A “good christian girl” who mistakes me for a Mennonite tough-guy (Jolin) from Amish Mafia. I could be wrong, but I think she is proposing. . .

–Some down-home folks who mistake me for a swamp guy from Ax Men.

–And here I am mistaken for a gay service-member. The funny thing about that whole story is the lesbian lady (who did not read my post very carefully and later harangued me about invasion of privacy) actually “liked” me on Facebook. So while she is berating me about her privacy, her picture is scrolling through my Facebook likers. All you had to do is click on it and you can see pictures of her and her “wife.” I very quietly banned her from my meager Facebook feed.

I added a site map to my little blog and it really super-charged the hits. Plug-ins are available, just pick one that works with your WordPress (or other software) version. It will tell you (when you preview it) if it is compatible. As usual, if you don’t have a blog, ignore this. Or if you don’t care about people dropping by your virtual home, nevermind too.

Watcher of Weasels was picked as part of the 2012 Fabulous 50 Blog Award Winners. You will notice a new insignia to the left. This blog is also #158 on the Top 200 Conservative Websites, just based on Alexa traffic rankings.

If you do cuss in your comments, it gets caught in a special filter. Don’t despair, but it will take time to approve your comment. And sometimes, comments just get sent to the spam filter. WordPress has a mind of its own.

And lastly, I am sure you’ve heard the French phrase, je ne blague pas. It means: I am not kidding. Just as je blague means I joke. So if I wrote – je blog, je ne blague pas – you would, of course, understand.

There, all up to date!

The Feminist Koolaid

On the feminist post, featuring Beyonce and Maggie Parker, a commenter by the name of Steven left the below comment:

I have found that many of my high school and college friends who drank the feminist Koolaid all had remarkably similar “flight paths” in life.

Most dabbled in lesbianism but found that lesbian relationships have similiar / same relationship problems as hetero-couples – despite feminist propaganda.

Most went through a period where they were “feminist activists” – whereby what ever pain or anger they felt was used by feminist organizations. What I mean is they were constantly re-reminded that they should be angry with men, had all their previous (platonic or sexual) relationships re-written throught a feminist lens, and were kept angry and NOT HELPED TO HEAL until they became burnt out and realized that they were being used.

And eventually when they finally broke from the herd they were in their mid-30′s to early 40′s, hadn’t had a normal, fulfilling, non-political/power dynamic relationship in over a decade, and were still very bitter. While, as with most people (male or female) they’d rather eat broken glass than admit they were wrong, duped, used, and lied to – these women I knew were emotionally in their 20′s (as this detour had severely stunted their growth a people for a decade), and were trying to find love.

I mean, I have seen it over and over and over – and these were nice girls / women who were happy. Granted, yes, some unhappy (or even horrible) event happened in all their lives during some relationship – which seems feminists go trolling for footsoldiers in “healing workshops / victim’s advocacy” areas.

What angers me is this: If I break my arm and go to the hospital, it is the doctor’s ethical duty to fix my arm as quickly as possible – and maybe some follow up, but it is NOT ethical to make me re-live my arm breaking over and over and over and keep me in pain and anger for his own political benefit.

And that is exactly what I have seen feminist groups do to many of my friends: keep them angry, isolated, scared, and in pain purely for “the cause” – it’s sickening.

I thought it an interesting and informed response. . .

Sperm Whale William Marotta to Pay Child Support

William Marotta, Angela Bauer, Jennifer SchreinerI imagine (considering I have no experience in this field) that sperm donors are a simple lot. Give ’em a dixie cup and leave ’em alone. But what happens when the sperm donor is ordered by a judge to pay child support? Which is what occurred to William Marotta when he contributed his sperm to a lesbian couple, Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner.

Kissing in the Navy

I would be remiss if I did not post on the USS Oak Hill. The Amphib just returned from 80 days underway. And two Sailors won the right for the first kiss. Essentially Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta entered a raffle by buying $50 worth of tickets. And when she won, she received first dibs on kissing her partner pier-side. One catch: her significant other is a female Fire Controlman, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell.

I am active-duty and I won’t comment other than to say: big deal. A more established mil-blogger saidWell, good for them. Now back to work.

And the Skipper:

David Bauer, the commanding officer of the USS Oak Hill, said that Gaeta and Snell’s kiss would largely be a non-event and the crew’s reaction upon learning who was selected to have the first kiss was positive.

“It’s going to happen and the crew’s going to enjoy it. We’re going to move on and it won’t overshadow the great things that this crew has accomplished over the past three months,” Bauer said.
