Little Green Women Haters

The comments following this post by Charles which contains links to the Faye Turney interview are a joy to behold. Anyone who doubted the assertion that the LGF comments section was a hotbed for misogyny and sexism should read this thread and learn. What a small minded bunch of woman haters. Fortunately there are some amongst the rank and file 'lizards' who did find the whole affair a little creepy.

Can you boys lay off the comments about her appearance please?
She said she felt like a traitor to the country she loved. She never said she felt ugly or fat while she was in Iran.

I agree Dawn. Criticizing her for her conduct is one thing. Comments degrading her for her physical appearance is juvenile and intellectually lazy.
Juvenile and intellectually lazy? You're commenting on LGF, what the hell do you expect? Well done for standing up for a little decency though.

Let's just hope others follow suit, and start pointing out the intellectual laziness of judging people by their religions and/or countries of origin

Careful. According to the liztard brood, the mere act of calling attention to their seething hate for anyone who does not live up to their revolving and self-serving standards of moral "courage" and conduct, is itself, a clear act of "hate" and yet another example of leftocommiehippyveganfascist blah blah blahhh.

It is important to keep in mind that the one thing the cretins who populate the retardosphere hate most, pure and simple, is scrutiny. Fortunately for them, the had almost 6 years of zero oversight; that has all changed and they's pissing their panties. Throw in some intellectual honesty and their heads will explode every time.

You apparently have a LOT of time on your hands to be watching LGF all the time....

@Mad Mikey

Did you work that out all on your lonesome?

It's not very hard to monitor a blog these days by the way, many many people do it.

You have apparenltly no shame....following your leader like a good little flying monkey and pimping your blog at the same time...

Legalize said...

Awesome. Criticizing a blogger for observing LGF while simultaneously spamming the drivel that passes as his blog on the same site. You stay classy, Mikey.

if you want a laugh, head on over to 'mad' mikey's site, not as bad as some, but the words, 'self important' springs to mind

Umm, excuse me, but you and your commenters have mocked Charles Johnson for his appearance several times. So are you:

(a) no better than the LGF posters you criticize?
(b) a hypocrite?
(c) maintaining that making fun of women is wrong, but men are fair game?

I'll leave it to you to come up with a (d) of total self-rationalization which keeps you blinkered to what this creepy obsession with LGF has done to your mind and spirit.

If you can't see the difference between mocking a self-important bigot who encourgages hate and bigotry and mocking a kidnap victim who thought she was going to ge raped and murdered then you need help.

No offense guys, but you're the ones with a link to "Atlas Juggs". I don't care what people think of Pamela Geller's politics, no women deserve to be simply reduced to discussion and mockery of their sexuality or, in this case, their breasts.

If you don't have standards, that's fine. But if you claim any, drop that link please.

MJ said...

Pims:

Had enough of being made to look stupid by Dennis The Peasant have you? Decided to come over here and do it?

Here's a deal as soon as Pamela drops here overt bigotry and homophobia we'll drop the link! How about that for a deal?

The sexism against Faye Turney was under a normal post about her release.

Pam 'puts her self around' the blogosphere and has thought nothing about using her body to advance it. The Atlas Juggs site is a parody of that behaviour. As MJ said if she drops the racism, bigotry and homophobia that'll be fine. I'd personally leave the link up just to piss off Pam's sycophants (that means you).

Hey Pim. What anon said earlier...

mj--ROFL!! I had never heard of this Dennis person until I followed some links from some hideous impersonation video on YouTube of Pamela. I left the guy a comment upset over his cruel words about a friend of mine, and he writes a whole post about me? And gets everything I do horribly wrong? Good thing I'm not obsessed with "blogging" and other "bloggers" or I might actually feel something beyond apathy.

So, I take it all of these blogs are somewhat tied together then? Well, at least I'm commenting for more than just one blog then.

MJ, no, you keep your link as well as your hypocrisy. Can you not see the difference between the criticism of content of one site here at LGF Watch and the demeaning nature of most of these people writing about Pamela? Not writing about her content, but about her breasts, her accent, etc? You are actually the 1st person I have seen since I discovered these attacks on her to actually make accusations based on what she writes! The first! And that is all I was ever asking for. Treat a woman blogger, even if you despise her writing, as subject to the same criticisms of any other writer and don't simply demean them.

Honestly, I'm a friend of Pamela's, not some rabid blog fan (though I know she has plenty). But as a friend, I don't see her as a bigot, and certainly not a homophobe. I'm not the best at keeping up with blogs, but I seriously doubt that she'd remain my friend if she were truly homophobic. Me, of all people! A gay rights activist at that! HA!

I am an anti-jihadi/Wahabist blogger for the most part (though I do what I do rarely and when I have the time). Otherwise, I call others as I see them. I speak my mind, and I am not bothered by who responds to me. That this Dennis guy wrote a whole post is rather hilarious and hardly makes me feel as if I've been "made to feel stupid"......ROFL.

I was just sticking up for a friend of mine, I'm sure you'd do the same.

Since I don't much care and you guys "Watch" LGF, I'll let you guys see if my loooonnnngg comment from last night (in the "Dutch" story thread) gets me attacked by LGF commenters. If they act as your site usually reflects, I will be pilloried for my pro-gay comments as well as my opinions that the many liberal laws of the NL are not bad or certainly an invitation to damnation, as one anti-evolution (anti-everything-sensible) commenter had written. Otherwise, I have no intention of trying to tell Pamela what to write or not write on her blog, but I will defend her as a person and a friend.

Pim, the lesson is obvious. It's okay to make fun of people you hate, so long as they never were in imminent physical harm. That's ethics for you.

Pim's Ghost said...

Anon, I guess so. I just don't make it around the blogs enough to have realized how weird so many of them are. I'm not even sure what "Pajamas media" actually is. Hell, I never even make it back to comments I leave most places. Especially with long threads like LGF. I'd never find it again. People here have probably read more responses to my LGF comments than I have, if there even are any.....lol....I just can't scroll through it all. I had to come back here to remember the name of that freak who wrote the post about me. Who the hell is that weirdo, anyways? At least he has pics of himself up. Those could end up being fun.

With all due respect, it's kind of hard not to mock someone who says things like,

"Maybe he [the Muslim Brotherhood representative who was allegedly invited to address Congress, but actually wasn't] will perform live genital mutilation surgery on Nancy Pelosi and several of her female grandchildren."

Besides, if Pam possessed the visual attributes of, let us say, Helen Thomas, would her blog and "vlog" have such a devoted following?

Pim's Ghost said...

v--point taken. I didn't see that one, nor do I know the context. I haven't kept up with much news lately, nor most blogs.

More female bloggers are out there than you probably realize though, many who are older or claim to not be attractive simply don't share their pictures or even the fact that they're female. Many of these have quite large followings, as well. No, no one would really get anywhere with their looks looking like Helen Thomas, but they could still get fans based on being good and fun writers. I'm no Helen Thomas myself, but I never update my blog either nor know crap about templates. So my blog looks like Helen Thomas I suppose. But it seemed as well liked when people thought I was male as once they discovered I am female and added videos.

Ah well, success in any form breeds contempt as well as the fans involved. It's just strange when it's someone you really like as a friend.
