Patriarchy and the Military

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 23, 2007

Twisty, of I Blame the Patriarchy, posts a blog on an article she read in the New York Times Magazine:

The New York Times Magazine story about post-traumatic stress disorder in women in combat is 16 screens long, but it can be boiled down to this: Women in combat are likely to be sexually assaulted by their peers, and to get PTSD as a result, and the military pretty much turns a blind eye.

Carlos “Scam Artist” Mencia

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 23, 2007

Undercover Black Man gives a quick post on Carlos Mencia:

As I mentioned in a previous comment thread, Carlos Mencia has stolen shamelessly from major black comedians for years. But even I can’t believe him ripping off Bill Cosby in his 2006 Comedy Central special, “No Strings Attached.” But the proof is right there on YouTube.

The Invasion of the “Yeux Bridés”

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 23, 2007

On the blog Gay Persons of Color the blogger comments on the “yeux bridés” (slanted eyes) incident:

If we are to accept and appreciate Canada and the United States as ethnically and racially plural, then we really have to remind politicians and the popular media that if we are not white, this doesn’t mean we are from somewhere else. Yes, the term “yeux bridés” has offended many, and even more have been offended by the lack of an apology or correction, but identifying someone as foreign based solely on physical features is a more insidious kind of offense of which far more individuals than just André Boisclair are guilty.
