Not So Pretty in Pink
This week, it's feminist Erica Jong.
She "tired" of "pink men bombing brown children."
What about brown men bombing brown or pink children? Or blowing themselves up after murdering brown women. (Benazir Bhutto was "brown" right?)
Does Jong have a problem with brown on brown murder? Should pink people try to stop that? Or should they mind their own business?
What's color have to do with it anyway and when did pink become the new white?
Isn't Jong's real beef with the white men and women who are trying to bring democracy to the brown people of Iraq who clearly she believes aren't ready for it?
"Don't tell me about women who kill. I know there are some--but fewer. So let's just remember our mothers--who bore us, protected us against our fathers and grandfathers and all the pink or brown men who wanted to rape us or kill us or starve us because we were girls."
I am sorry Erica Jong needed so much protection from her father and grandfather who wanted to starve her and rape her and kill her just because she was a girl.
"I am not stupid," she writes. "I know all generalizations are false."
Talk about generalizations! But as for her being "not stupid." She coulda' fooled me.
