Mayday! Mayday!

Ok, I admit it. I actually am a group of women. Here, in fact, is a picture of me from earlier today in the midst of my May Day celebration. After about 9 hours of walking around the pole here — hey, I like to celebrate the fuck out of May Day — I’m a bit too tired to post today. I’ll be back Monday. All hail the goddess!

Also, does no one but me actually like the new punky background to the blog? What if I removed the big jarring black areas?

I did not notice it in admiring your lovely symbolism of dancing around a giant phallus while wearing purity colours.

OMG Dave, I totally hate your background. It’s distracting. =( I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to sound like a total bitch and it’s your blog, but now that you’ve brought it up…. X_X

I actually liked the black background better, it’s the white that’s bothering my eyes. Everyone’s eyes are different, but low-contrast like this can be very difficult for many people, grey on white is hard for me even when I have “normal” sight (I wear contact lenses most of the time.) Maybe try blue on white like in the links?

BTW, love the new header. And happy May Day!

I don’t mind the background. I am, however, surprised that you’re (by which I mean “y’all women are” dancing around the maypole and not running between two fires to purify yourself and then fucking in the fields to promote fertility for the coming planting season. Or is that later?

Have you been watching the original Wicker Man Bee?

No Wicker Man, it’s Beltane! And I just found out about it. Possibly from misinformed sources who were hoping to lure me outside for a romp in the garden…

That’s not how I imagined you, David, once I found out you were the feminist Borg. I thought you looked like this.

It would only be Wicker Man if it involved sacrifice (if I remember correctly).

My .02 on the background: While I don’t mind the punk-y background, I hate all the white. Any way to fiddle with it and make a different color? Dark red or gray and black? Or something?

I vote to remove the jarring black areas. They add nothing and are distracting. Just my two cents.

And, Dave, please make up your mind what you are. Just when I had accepted that you were the ultimate omega–Popeye without his spinach to the MRAs’Bluto–you revert back to being a group of women. Of course, you’re just following the MRAs projection, but still.

I actually kind of love the background.

I agree. Though I usually have the browser sized such that the sides aren’t visible, I feel like I only dislike the white because its different from the old blog.

The white does work very well with the content (which has a white background), so… Out with teh old, in with the new?

Oh, I have heard of Beltane before (one of my relatives is Wiccan) but I was never told the naughty stuff since as with most Americans, violence is okay but oooh sex is a bad bad bad thing to let any child even see a wee bit of.

The black marks made me think I had shit on my screen, like eraser shavings or dust. Now my laptop is now covered in fingerprints from trying to wipe them off. So no I hate it and I hope you die.

OK, I came back and tried it again… still don’t like all the white. Ouch, bright. Makes me squinty… but it’s not enough to keep me from reading your blog! :3

Cap’n B, I think it’s one of those it’s-a-dessert-topping-AND-a-floor-wax things.

This is MUCH better according to my eyes, in that I find it much easier to read! Thank you!

Pfft, why are you galavanting like a pagan instead of commemorating labor riots like a good Marxist?

is there any way to have the comments show up from first to last? I just tried to read the previous post’s comments and ended up in the middle of a conversation and very confused when there weren’t nearly 148 comments to be seen on the page I was on… do I have to remember to click back to the “older” comments (the link hidden in very greyed out text) every time I visit?

Neither you nor any of your batty followers would know what misogyny really is.

Not even if it crawled up your ass and died.

I like the banner.
The black background doesn’t bother me, but it’s a bit hard to hide at work.

I’m hopefull about the new site.
Let’s see how quickly it eats my posts…

For me it’s dark grey text on white. Very small amount of black.
Looks good.

I’m curious if Scarecrow will take the time to enlighten us as to what misogyny really is.

I’d just like to point out that this phrase has another possible meaning, which is what I initially read it as, making me wonder what exactly Arksibalt was doing with his/her computer.

@johnnykaje:

Imagine the Jews in WWII all being women, and the Nazi’s all men.

Or, the blacks in colonial America being all women, and the slave-owners men.

That would be misogyny.

Simply saying “Fireman”, “Policeman”, “Mailman” – is not misogyny.

Suggesting that David Futrelle is a group of women (feminist trolls), that is NOT misogyny. Perhaps incorrect, but not misogyny.

It is called political correctness gone mad. The slightest little walking on the wrong eggshell gets you labeled as a misogynist.

And you know it is a fact in our society today.

Unless, you are a complete shut in.

🙂

Feeling enlightened?

Ah, the random invocation of “political correctness” as if that absolves you of your knowing asshole-ish bigotry.

“Don’t be a bigot”
“Wah, wah, wah, I want to say bigoted things-You are being the PC police! PC police!”

“Politically incorrect” is the PC term for “reactionary asshole with nothing else going for them but their faux ‘edginess'”.

Also men never own women (especially in theae modern times) or inflict bodily harm on people simply for being women. Thank you for enlightening me to my hypersensitivity.

“Politically incorrect” is the PC term for “reactionary asshole with nothing else going for them but their faux ‘edginess’”.

Kind of like “progressive” is the preferred term for “oversensitive, humorless party-pooper looking for things to be offended about”. Just sayin’.
