Romney: Defeated by sluts?

Slut voters slutting it up

Leave it to the Men’s Rightsers to come up with an even more ingeniously loopy explanation for Romney’s defeat than even Karl Rove has managed to come up with. According to the anonymous blogger behind the Christian Men’s Defense Network blog, on the far-right fringe of the already pretty fringey Men’s Rights movement, the thing that brought Romney down was “the slut vote.”

Let’s let Mr. Christian Men’s Defense Network explain:

[T]he Democrats tried to make this election about a single issue:

The right to slut.

Or more precisely, the right to slut without the responsibility of consequences.  The famous “gender gap” isn’t really a gap based on gender.  The right overwhelmingly wins older and married women.

But, alas, these fine, moral, married ladies are increasingly being challenged by younger, sluttier single gals.

[M]arried women constitute an ever-decreasing share of the female population.  Women want to delay marriage as long as possible so they can “have it all,” and usually “have it all” means “have as much hot alpha sex as possible without any consequences.”  And thus, less married women and more sluts

And so, Mr. CMDN concludes,

The “gender gap” should more accurately be called the slut vote.

In order to understand the Democrats’ evil (and successful) strategy to win over the slut vote, Mr. CMDN explains, we need to understand how they won over blacks. And yes, his explanation is racist as fuck:

Democrats have won the black vote because the black community is dominated by illegitimacy, and the Democrats are willing to subsidize and support that illegitimacy (as well as provide access to cheap abortions) so as to take away from sluts the consequences of their actions.  Consequently, young black people grow up on the dole and not only never realize there might be something wrong with that, but eventually come to believe that’s the way it should be.  The Democrats have won the black vote by first “empowering” single black mothers.

But now, you see, this kind of “illegitimacy” is spreading amongst white – or at least white sluts.

This is now beginning to happen in white suburbia, except unlike women in the urban black community, white suburban sluts start from a place of relative wealth and privilege (daddy’s little princess).  Thus, food stamps–and increased rewards for having illegitimate kids while on food stamps–don’t (yet) appeal to them.

So instead Obama appealed to rich white sluts by forcing someone else (the Catholic church, in this case) to pay for their birth control, and by scaring them about alleged threats to their ability to take advantage of Planned Parenthood’s services (Planned Parenthood being conveniently located in the minority part of town, of course, so as to provide anonymity to visiting white girls whose white girl friends never go over there–except to visit Planned Parenthood themselves).

All the Democrats had to do to win over these slutty white gals was to frighten them a little:

One thing one has to remember about women, especially slutty ones:  They usually don’t make decisions based on reason.  So all the Obama administration had to do was scare them that Mitt Romney was going to take away their birth control and their access to abortion.  The fear for them is that, without birth control and abortion, they might actually get pregnant and have to give birth.  That is scary not simply because of the economic burden of having a child (since, hey, they can get all kinds of cash and prizes if that happens), but because if that happened then everyone would know they’re sluts, and their image as daddy’s pure little snowflake princess goes out the window.

Having just told us that “the “gender gap” should more accurately be called the slut vote,” Mr. CMDN now tells us that there’s more to the gender gap than mere sluttiness.

[T]he desire to slut it up isn’t the only factor in the gender gap.  America has a fiscal problem primarily because women want free stuff without ever having to work.  America is over-regulated because women don’t want to have to compete in the free market.  America has profound moral problems in part because the rationalization hamster makes it impossible for 54% of the American electorate to ever admit a moral shortcoming.

However, this election cycle shows that the Slut Vote is real, and Republicans lose because they discount the existence of original sin in women.  Abortion is often called the “third rail of American politics,” but in truth, the third rail is a woman’s right to slut (with cash and prizes).

One thing one has to remember about MRAs, especially shitty ones: The world they live in bears only a passing resemblance to reality.

And apparently, Mr. CMDN can only take so much reality: he took his blog private after this post of his was mentioned on Jezebel, which is why I had to link to the Google cached version rather than the blog itself.

Not all PP offices are in “Poor Parts of Town” in the way people think of them. Mountain View, Calif. has one, and it’s not a poor part of MV.

Pasadena Calif. has one, and it’s on the border of the black/non-black part of town, and the area was pretty solidly white when the clinic went in.

GordonWillis: No idea, hellkell, but, being British, I must admit to being very surprised to discover that “slut” no longer means what it means, if you see what I mean. I do think someone should have told us…but there we are. But does it really matter? I admit that I’m more concerned about attitudes. Pity about my language, though, sniff. I suppose that what bothers me about it is having to learn someone else’s.

Bollocks.

Language is either active, or it’s dead. You can rant that way about Latin, but not Enlish, because there is no such thing as, “English” There isn’t even “English” in England, and anyone who has tried to watch a born and bred Kentish speaker try to speak to a Yorkshireman, or a Toff to a Cockney.

Get over yourself.

Grumbles: That’s not the point. I’m not arguing against that, but it wasn’t a very good example that you cited.

It was a great example. If a group want to reclaim a word (c**n, or w**back, or s*ut) that’s the group’s perogative.

Having someone who isn’t part of the group tell them what it means, and they ought to “reclaim” the word is not the same.

Having someone come in and tell them they ought to reclaim it because he is upset the word isn’t being used the he likes, pompous and stupid and offensive.

re cups, etc. For most things (serious cakes, and some other aspects of pastry aside), relative volumes are the important thing. So if my “cup” is off by 1/2 oz, the recipe still works. For flour, “scoop and level”, for sugar, “scoop and level” (other than for brown).

It works.

Nobody seems to consider that PP puts its clinics in areas where people are most likely to be poor and not have health insurance and need them. *boggle*

And, like every other business, has to take into account zoning laws, traffic, parking and operational costs.

Though unlike other businesses it has to worry about crazy shitbags throwing bombs at it.

Pecunium, I love seeing people with strong regional accents trying to have a conversation. It can make for great comedy.

One of the best I’ve seen was someone from Somerset trying to talk to someone from Tyneside.

Oh and anyone with a Glaswegian accent talking to anyone, particularly people who don’t speak English as their mother tongue. The looks on their face are priceless, you can see them thinking “Is this English?”.

I have the advantage of speaking largely RP (received pronunciation ie. BBC or Queen’s English) with a south london-ish twang so most people can understand me. And since my family are from Scotland and the North I’m pretty good with any of the accents from there.

Castor sugar, says the internet, is a British thing that is finer than regular sugar but not to be confused with powdered sugar, and golden castor sugar is the brown sugar version, but it looks more like a pale tan rather than a light brown, if the Tesco website is not misleading me.

Golden Caster Sugar is “unwashed” sugar, at caster sugar granularity. Think Demerara, or Turbinado.

pecunium

Sugar:

White/Plain, comes in “regular”, lump, cubes, caster.

Caster sugar is also sold as, “superfine”, or “bartenders”. The crystals are very small.

Powdered sugar is also called, “fondant base”, and has 3 percent cornstarch added. It’s finer than caster.

Brown, comes in various grades, all based on how much molasses (from the first boil) is added back in.

Raw/Demerara/Turbinado/Unwashed sugar, is sugar which hasn’t been made white. The final crystalising has a small amount of molasses in the solution. Ash, of various sorts is used to “bleach” it. Beet Sugar has no molasses, and tends to be paler, even when not bleached.

Maple Sugar is harder to find. Interestingly the grades of Maple Syrup (A/B/C) are based on color. Grade A is the lightest (and has the least flavor). It fetches the most money, because the grading system is a holdover from days maple was the prime source of table sugar in much of the NE US, and Canada. Grade A made the whitest sugar, with the least maple flavor.

Grade B is the stuff to get. Grade C is a little harsh, and almost impossible to find outside the industrial food world; where it’s used to flavor things. It’s not bad for cooking, etc., when the side flavors are blending into the larger flavor profile.

Forgot, Caster sugar is the thing to use if a recipe calls for, “creaming” butter and sugar. The smaller grains makes it 1: easier, and 2: more evenly distributed, and the textural aspects are better.

The best cookies are (IMO) made with caster sugar.

@Historiphilia – our best recipe for “Black Magic cake” also uses sour milk, which is milk + vinegar since we never have buttermilk in the house. No effect on taste at all (and damn is it yummy). I am making chocolate chip cookies today myself, hopefully.

@SunshineMary – you need to meet up with some of our other trolls so we can beat you over the heads with a trout until you actually read the header on the blog. This is a mocking site. It’s not a critical analysis site, or a journalism site. And no matter how many times you trolls try to use this tired rhetorical line, David doesn’t owe it to you to compose posts to suit your whims. It’s his blog. If he wants to start writing about shellfish every day for the rest of time, there’s nothing you can do about it.

@TTF I was wondering if I had missed the rules for a drinking game. No worries on my part. More people need to talk about their abortions so the “It’s so painful, evil, soul-killing, ruins your life” decriers (totally a word) don’t own the whole conversation.

Of course, if one was able (as some I know were) to look at the affiliations of the OP, you would see he’s, in some way; at least intellectually, affiliated to The Phineas Priesthood

That, for those who don’t know, is some scary shit. Dominionist, with overtones of terrorism.

I am a woman, but you are not, and you are the one who wrote the OP. Argue like a man and refute what he said; otherwise it’s just yip-yap. Is all that feminist men can add to the discussion? Yip-yap?

Why, Mary! How can you speak so rudely to one of your male superiors? As a a man, David is naturally more intelligent, logical and rational than yourself, isn’t he?

Rather than resorting to emotion-driven insults (just like a woman, may me add!), you should apologize prettily for being too simple to understand his rational male arguments, then listen quietly and appreciatively as he instructs you. If you’d stop your typical female yip-yapping, maybe a man could finally teach you something.

Heavens, if I see any more of this uppity female behavior, I may just get the vapors.

(who probably have never had a decent blow job in their lives because their peens are wee)

I want to take a moment to address this.

There is no moral standard attached to sexuality or penis size. A man who has never had a blow job is not by default worse off than a rapist who has. A good person with a smaller penis is better than a terrible person with a larger penis.

I know I’m a little late to the “reclaim slut” conversation, but I’d like to throw in that it is essentializing as hell.

One may very well point to black people reclaiming certain words…but that is only *some* black people. Same goes for slut. It is a word with a long history, parts of it offensive. If you find a million women who are okay with reclaiming it and think it is okay, then fine. Those million women can skip and sing “SLUT” at the top of their lungs.

That does not make the one million and first woman’s refusal to be okay with it any less. Nor should anyone get angry at her for refusing to play along.

So, “Women, reclaim the word!” is telling a very large, diverse group of people to agree on something incredibly divisive that they may have deeply personal views about. Not gonna happen. It is essentializing and suggests that women should all agree on things because we’re all *women*.

Of coure, Mary Sunshine isn’t really interested in engaging a logical argument in good faith. If somebody spent the time and effort to document all the problems with B-Skillet’s ignorant rant, it would be met with silence or, at best, some comically fallacious argument. You forget that we already know how you work, sunshine.

No, what The Woman And The Dragon And The Misogynist is doing is giving herself an excuse to retain her current beliefs without having to assume responsibility for questioning them. If she wanted to, she could look up how food stamps are given out or how Planned Parenthood functions—instead, she has offloaded onto her ideological opponents the burden of disproving such unevidenced notions as the idea that women tend not to make decisions based on reason, while men do. The whole point is to make her relationship to the facts rivalrous, rather than exploratory, so she can reassure herself that all the people laughing at this nonsense just don’t know The Truth.

So unrelated to Romney, but related to the election:

Can anyone point me to some good pre-election conservative blog posts saying that Q1, Q6, and/or R74 wouldn’t pass because people will never vote for gay marriage, or that sort of thing?

I’m kind of anti-marriage in general, but I love your White Cake of Gondor, I just have to say.

In all honesty, listening to gay people who are more socially conservative than me make their cases about why they want marriage equality has done a lot to raise my respect for the institution of marriage in general. So suck on that, evangelicals who think that same sex marriage devalues hetero marriage somehow.

Cassandra: these are respectively similar to Domino superfine and powdered sugar. For “golden caster”, if you can’t find a sufficiently fine grain of turbinado, get an equivalent weight of regular turbinado and pass it through a Moulinex (volume will increase slightly at first, then decrease as it settles).

Vinegar or a sharp applesauce is used together with baking soda when you don’t have baking powder or a Southern-formula self-rising flour. I remember having a recipe of that kind *very* long ago; maybe it’s still in the archives.

It’s usually plain cake with strawberry or raspberry jam. We did make it with my granny’s homemade bramble jam one year, which was delicious.
