warning: long post

Count me as one of the “humorless feminists” who can’t “get over” grope-gate.  This is mainly because I’m increasingly infuriated at the defensiveness I’m reading from (mostly) men over Favreau’s “private” behavior and our societal imperative to leave him alone to act out occasionally.  If you haven’t been following NYC Weboy’s “debate” with Adam Serwer at TAPPED (one, two, three, four, and five), do it now.

Lest you think we’re making any progress in opening people’s eyes to this case of sexual harrassment and the creation of a hostile work environment (not to mention how Favreau’s terrible judgment defies the stated essence of Obama’s candidacy and governance), before I continue with my rant check out this smattering of comments from the peanut gallery of liberal dudez who just wish we’d leave them the f— alone and spare them our puritanical judgy-ness – and didn’t you know, Clinton’s a racist anyway, and don’t we have more important things to gripe about,  like world peace and hunger, or something???

    More shocking is how feminism has become humanism. See the excuses in the comments at Feministing, Feministe and Shakesville.

    donna darko, could you elaborate? I haven’t participated in the comments at those spaces for quite some time, and am unsure what you mean.
