alright people: tomorrow is moving day. I will be driving halfway across the country and lugging boxes of my belongings over the next several days, and my access to internet will be limited and questionable for a while. So, in the meantime, please try to play nice. and try not to freak out if you make a comment that gets moderated, or send me an email that doesn’t get answered. I won’t be able to respond as quickly as I have been. Just be patient.

And, wish me luck! I’m starting school on Tuesday!

Aulelia hipped me to this one: an interview with hip-hop producer Palow Da Don, in which he calles himself “King of the White Girls” and talks about how submissive white women are, how uppity black women are, and how he prefers a woman who knows her place in the “divine order” of things.

AllHipHop.com: Now, you call yourself the “King of All White Girls.”  Elaborate on that for me.

Polow Da Don:  Just the “King of the White Girls.” I ain’t self proclaimed but I run with it. [Laughs] There was a stage in my life where I went crazy with dating white women. I have nothing against black women, but they’re raised differently. White women are raised to respect and serve their men.  Black women are taught to question [their men]. Black women look at submission as being weak. White women look at submission as being a woman. And anyone who has a problem with this statement is ignorant.  Just look at the divine order; it goes man, woman, child.

mmmm.  if you can stomach reading this idiot’s incoherent misogynistic and racist bullshit, and the equally idiotic comments on the article, here’s the link.

I don’t know about y’all, but I am utterly disgusted with this asshole. Black women are too hard to control because they aren’t submissive? so avoid them, because they challenge the “divine order”? and your fucking male privilege? And white women are better because we’re submissive? we define ourselves as women by being submissive?

give me a fucking break.

do I look submissive to you? I didn’t think so.

Why the man is hating on black women I have no clue. Black women are not a monolith. When can people actually get treated like individuals? hmm? when? instead of all the same as one another? because we’re not all the same. Not black women, not white women, not women. period.

just because he has had better luck dominating the white women he has met than he has had dominating the black women he has met doesn’t mean he gets to make broad generalizations about either group of women. Man’s not looking for a partner. not in any sense of that word. Man’s looking for a fucking servant, someone he can dominate and control. Misogynist motherFUCKER!

ok, that’s my 5 minute rant for the day. gotta run, more packing to do!

I’m totally furious about this. did you know that in Canada, gay men cannot donate blood, or tissue/organs?


not even if they have taken every test for every disease under the sun. If a man in Canada has had sex with another man, once since 1977, he is not eligible to donate blood or organs. And, women who have had sex in the last 12 months with a man who has sex with another man since 1977 can’t donate either.

yes, it’s all in the intake form you have to fill out when you donate blood. Please, go and read it for yourself.

I’ve just been reading a study of issues around death and dying for LGBT people, called Passing Through by dr. Jeanette Auger.  In it, her research indicates several stories of gay men who have not been permitted to donate blood or organs because they have had sex with other men, even if they have been tested for blood-borne illnesses. Nice, people. Fucking nice. So next time you see one of those stupid “It’s in you to give” Canadian Blood Services commercials, think of how many people they are turning away simply because of their sexual orientation.

Oh, and also, please note the last question. It asks if you were born in Africa, or if you’ve (male or female) had sex with anyone from Africa since 1977. I wonder what the consequences of answering yes to this question might be.

… of My Daughter’s Vagina, part 3, now up at Alas.

Oh, and I cleared out my feed reader, and slashed my subscriptions down to a more manageable number, so hopefully now I can keep up.

Next on my reading list is Magniloquence’s Race Relations 101 series – haven’t gotten there yet, but I can’t wait. Magniloquence is a fierce writer!
