Two blogs have me thinking quickly today–one of them is a blog I read offline, the other is one I unfortunately stumbled upon monday night.
Res on the Republic of Dogs Blog posted this piece on feminism and progressive thought. I have not had my head spin so fast since I was in Beloit. By spinning head, I mean reading and taking in a number of opinions quickly. Some were well written, wonderfully articulated easy to read pieces. Others were somewhat rambling gems of thought. A few were emotionally tinged, reminding me of more heated exchanges I’ve been apart of. It was one of the best pieces, comments included, I’ve read in the blogosphere in a long while. Read the post. For my rusty brain it was some very heavy thinking.
The other blog I won’t post here yet, as I’m still digesting it. I know Shannon is planning on posting a series of comments and posts that almost make me feel bad for the guy. Almost is the key term here. This blogger presents as an entitled, suburban cobag of the third degree. Everything he writes is from this position-but that alone does not explain why I am so irritated by him. There is something else that is bugging me about his blog that I can’t yet put my finger on–something that is preventing me from going after him as much as I want to. Is it the ignorance, arrogance, misogyny or entitlement that is irritating me? This is something I need to sort out before I start cross-positng or commenting.
