Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Quite Possibly the Dumbest Thing I’ve Ever Heard a Woman Say

 

And that’s saying a lot. Something called “Ana Marie Cox,” who was formerly the Executive Editor at something called suck.com (I stopped reading the Wikipedia entry at that point), has weighed in on the Kavanaugh controversy as follows (emphasis added):

We need to judge Brett Kavanaugh, not just by what he may or may not have done, but how he treats a woman’s pain. And that is something I’m going to be paying attention to on Monday. How does he respond to what’s happening. Whether or not he agrees that this happened with her, does he take her pain seriously? Do the people interrogating her pain take her pain seriously? Now, I’ll give you a spoiler alert, I don’t think Brett Kavanaugh takes women’s pain very seriously, and I know that because of the decisions he’s made as a judge.

Whether or not he agrees that this happened with her, does he take her pain seriously?

Are you [redacted] kidding me?

Crimenutely. It may be time for the women of America to throw away their “pussy hats” and just put brown paper bags over their heads instead. I could go for that, right about now. (Remember the “Aints?”)

Apparently, there are many people who regard this wretched woman as a serious person with an opinion that is worth listening to.

There’s nothing else to be said other than that I have lived too long and the world has passed me by.

    That’s the same Ana Marie Cox who was formerly “Wonkette” and had an affair with a member of GWB’s staff?

    Yeah, we don’t need to pay any attention to that one.

    I think that a lot of folks feel like a good quality argument comes from coming up with something clever, and no doubt she think’s she’s done so. She hasn’t.

    A female Senator from Hawaii said on national television today that “the men of this country should shut up, step up, and do the right thing for a change.” She also said that the woman accusing Kavanaugh must be believed because she is a woman. Will try to find a clip.

    Are we also judging Democrats by this standard? If Sen. Feinstein had any compassion, wouldn’t she have shared the letter with the media when she got it, as opposed to waiting for two months?

    Given where we are headed in our culture today, hard to distinguish argumentum ad passiones from argumentum ad absurdum.

    Maybe she was being sarcastic ?

    I think not. These folks aren’t noted for their sense of humor. It’s all of a piece with the clip of Hawaii Senator Maisie Hirono that @judithanncampbell linked to above.

    Ah, see, that’s where you go wrong. Juanita Broaddrick isn’t really a woman. Just like Clarence Thomas isn’t really black.

    That is easy. Women who accuse democrat men are not really women.

    There’s nothing else to be said other than that I have lived too long and the world has passed me by.

     

    When I was a teenager, I saw Arthur Treacher tell some young bimbo who was almost as obnoxious as Ana Marie Cox that he was glad to be as old as he was because it meant he would be long dead before she and her friends were in charge. I thought then that he was a very bitter old man. Today, I finally realized the wisdom of his attitude. I don’t want to live in a world where Ana Marie Cox is taken seriously, to say nothing of her type being in charge. It ticks me off to think I’m still young enough that I might live to see that happen.

    Guilty, I stand convicted, all I can say in my defense is that I may have been born at night, but it wasn’t last night. Your honor, I do not believe this woman’s story.

    She: Something called “Ana Marie Cox,” who was formerly the Executive Editor at something called suck.com

    suck.com was actually a pretty charming daily humor and commentary site from 1995 to 2001, when they went out of business. The archives are still available at suck.com.

    Their motto: “A fish, a barrel, and a smoking gun.”

    And I fell in love with the artwork of Terry Colon.

    Oh, yeah. I’d completely forgotten about that site. I used to check it out regularly back in the pre-Google days.

    I picture Bill “I feel your pain” Clinton biting his lower lip and shedding crocodile tears. If that’s the kind of sympathy she wants expressed she can always go to him and get it. Good and hard.

    Your criticism assumes that arguments should be based on logic. That assumption is an oppressive tool of the patriarchy because logic is based in toxic masculinity.

    Wow, mark this day where the feminist movement officially jumped the shark. The mask is off people. This isn’t about equality, it is about the superiority of women, of course it has always been about that, but now they can’t claim it anymore. Also you know how feminists get really ticked off about female stereotypes, such as that women are “emotional, instead of rational”.

    Well, this case is all about feelings, now isn’t it. Let’s talk about this women’s emotional pain, about an event that was so traumatic, that she only comes out about it now, 35 years after the event, right before the nomination of a supreme court judge who will change the balance of the Supreme court so that it puts Roe V Wade in jeopardy of being overturned. Let’s ignore that she is a leftist activist who also scrubbed her social media profile that may link her to events like the women’s march, because, feelings, you know. I’m sure she’s really credible, and is super rational and will be able to present some evidence to back up her claim.

    While a woman ruins a man’s life, Cox expects the man to be noble enough to consider the pain that caused her to do it? A nobility that the woman clearly doesn’t possess. Cox has scrambled eggs for brains.
