Every once in a while, those of us concerned with feminism (or just women in politics in general) have to stand up for what we believe in, and call attention to shameful comments about women. The guys over at The Standard have done some excellent naming and shaming, causing the offender, a long-time blogger, to completely pull the story from his site. The URL of the story tells us enough, I think.
Interestingly, David Farrar has his own story that linked to the blog in question, on a post related to the shameful comments. Farrar follows the excuse that a link to a site is neither approval or disapproval of all of its content- I think we can all understand that fine. I’d like to express my sincerest hope, however, that he will at least call out his fellow blogger on his unacceptable comments, to clear the air- I know I would in his shoes.
If you’d like to weigh in, here’s the original story.
