…Yer fuckin’ kiddin’ me, right? Right?

Posted: July 4, 2011 in WTF???

Okay, so I guess today is a good day, being the 4th and all, because I am gonna jump right on in with two things the US is sorta known for:  Freedom of Speech, and killing people.  How is that? 

Well, I was out there reading blogs while dealin with one of those horrible summer colds, you know, where freedom of speech rings, and it seems as if the latest hardcore rad fem poster girl for all the evil and horrible sexism in the world is Casey Anthony, a woman who is on trial in FL (death penalty case) for murdering her 2 year old daughter, Caylee (who, oddly enough, is rarely called by name by the rad fems, which I find interesting, as she too was female).  Now, I am not even gonna talk about whether or not I think Casey Anthony is guilty or not.  And I will say that the media and those court tv people (ugh, Nancy Grace- she’s such a hand wringing asshole) are real quick to point out that Casey is conventionally attractive and trash her for it, as well as point out she seems unemotional and call her a sociopath….which rad fems would never do and it just has them so up in arms, cause you know, they would never trash someone they did not know about their looks or call them sociopaths  (uh, wait, strike that, they would, and have, hey, I would know!)  but yep, Casey Anthony is the post girl of the week.  They are all on about how she is a woman, so just everyone assumes shes guilty (and what, they never, ever, ever without knowing shit about a case or whathave you just assume men accused of crimes are guilty of em, right? Right?) and how there are an inordinate amount of women on death row for murder of family members as compared to men.  Nevermind that women on death row, period, constitute a mere tiny fraction of death row inmates…period.  Truth is, people are far less likely to send women to death row for ANY crime, period.  But hey, poster girl of the week, so let’s ignore that. 

They have also been on and on about how well, Casey was abused.  Maybe she was, and maybe she wasn’t.  It’s very likely she was even, and that is horrible, yet, it ain’t like Casey Anthony has oh, not lied a whole lot.  Its not like she is trying to mount a defense that will get her acquitted or anything- and if she was abused, its not like she’s accused of  murdering her abusers.  No.  She is accused of murdering a 2 year old girl.  You know, someone with zero chance of fighting back, or defending herself, or any other such thing- a person who stood no chance against anyone of the mind to do her harm, and not only someone unable to fight back, but someone unable to ever even have a chance to ask for help.   If Anthony is guilty? Well, hey, I think she should get a seat in Florida’s very famous electric chair.  I never claimed to be anti-death penalty after all, and I am not even of that mind because Anthony was a mother.  I’d feel the same fucking way about anyone who murdered a two year old or any other human who had no chance of fighting back, defending themselves, or getting help.

And really, the whole fucking thing- this poster girling of Anthony, just stuns me.  The people who are defending the snot out of her would instantly condemn and say guilty as charged to ANY man accused of the same crimes,  the same people who are so pissed off at the media for bashing her looks, life style, and mentality do the same fucking thing to whomever when it suits them, and there is like zero mention….ZERO….at all, of the fact that the VICTIM of this crime- reguardless of who did it- was, oh, a two year old girl…

I mean,WTF, really???

    I read very few blogs apart from yours and thus was unaware of the “poster girling” of Casey Anthony by radical feminists. They will win little sympathy for their cause or respect for their views by this odd choice. Under the best scenario, as painted by Anthony’s defense team, she is guilty of manslaughter, extreme neglect and a criminal cover-up. What is going on here? This is a real question, not a rhetorical one. My suspicion, which I admit is unsupported by wide reading in blogland, is that this evinces some veiled child-hating. Is this possible? You know the geography of blogland far better than I. I do hasten to add that even if my suspicions are well-founded, child hatred is a phenomenon that extends well beyond the boundaries of radical feminism. A shocking number of American children live in poverty. Estimates range from about 25% to a high of about 40%. The latter statistic comes from the National Center for Children in Poverty, under the aegis of Columbia University’s School of Public Health. Even if we concede that it is in their institutional interest to inflate the numbers and we prefer to accept the low-end figure of 25%, the situation is shocking. And the younger the child, the greater the chances that s/he lives in poverty. What does it say about us as a society that we accept this situation? That the poster-girling of Casey Anthony is only the tip of a large and ugly iceberg that threatens to sink our kids?

      well, anthony herself said she never wanted to be a mother and her parents (namely) did not allow her to have an abortion or give the girl up for adoption- to wit, I say, she was a grown ass adult and it wasn’t her parents choice – so, apparently she WENT with their wishes for SOME reason (support, money, who knows) but yeah, even if they had been like “You are outta the family if you do this!” She had a CHOICE.

      Now, rad fems gettin’ pissed about forced motherhood, or discussing the pressure upon women to be not only mothers, but perfect non-flawed impossible ones? Game the Fuck On, RANT AT WILL. But championing a woman who HAD choices, and made them, and is alive, over a girl who did not have choices, and did not make them, and is dead?

      WTF????

        I guess every now and then we take a little collective journey into human monstrousness. Always a strange trip. I went to the Orlando Sentinel link you provided and found this summation of Casey Anthony’s character, by her former bodyguard: “a ‘nice girl’ without emotions, some knowledge of chloroform and a fascination with the media.” Its lapidary oddness reminds me of an obit in the New Orleans Times-Picayune headlined “So-and-so, Socialite, Murderess.”

  2. Like you, I don’t write as much as when prompted by others, and people calling me out on my meeeeeanness made me do a lot of writing on this post–

    http://daisysdeadair.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-get-away-with-murder.html

    –in comments, even more than on the post itself.

    I hate hate hate to grant the MRAs even a teensy point, goddamn it, but she did get off because of appearances and sympathy, which would NEVER work if it was a daddy-killer rather than a mommy-killer. Agreed… and I seem to have upset a lot of people for saying I want the names of the jury. Hey, I just want to talk. I am NICE PERSON.

    But the whole feminist phenom, I take on in comments about BPD. The reason BPD is not discussed more, and how the modern sexual role has created it (as we discuss, ohhh, say, how the modern white male role turns so many of them into dicks) is because lots of the 3rd wave SUFFERS FROM IT.

    Yes, I said it.

    It hasn’t made me any friends, but I am being discussed IN DEPTH on at least two email lists, LOL.

    I don’t know a lot about this case, but I hear that she was found not guilty. But I think almost inevitably coverage of her will have been misogynist, because coverage of females who commit these type of crimes always are. HOWEVER, I too find it incredible when feminists defend women who’ve committed horrible crimes on the basis that they’re women and they were abused (not talking about Anthony specifically, but in general) or acting under the influence of men. It doesn’t excuse what they did. They’re still adults and they’re still responsible for actions. It takes me back to that whole ‘consent’ row (if you can remember that). If we say women aren’t capable of making choices, we’re saying they’re helpless infants. What’s feminist about that?

      ” If we say women aren’t capable of making choices, we’re saying they’re helpless infants. What’s feminist about that?”

      Polly: EXACTLY! I just cannot get or tolerate that NOTION. There is NOTHING feminist about that- and you see it everywhere, that women are soo horribly whatever anything and everything they cannot make truly informed choices, and that DOES make them like infants. WTF?!?!?! I mean REALLY- that is so….ugh…sexist, wrong, misogynisitc, EVERYTHING it just blows my mind, but you see it all the time! Personally, anyone who spouts that shit should get an automtic Fail at even being considered open to feminist thinking.
