You are now a rich, white, straight, cisgendered, able-bodied man.

Let’s talk about an irritating trend that I see happening all over. See, everyone’s always excited over diversity in politics. That politics is and has been the playground of mostly rich white males is so obvious it never even has to be stated.

Who wouldn’t be excited to see more women, non-whites, gay, transgendered, etc. politicians to represent them? Well, apparently liberals, I am honestly surprised to say. As far as diversity goes, the theory seems to be that if you are a woman politican, but you support policies that go against liberal women’s ideas of what’s good for women, then you cease to be a woman.

You are no longer a woman. You are something else, a pawn perhaps, for men, because you couldn’t *possibly* have came up with those ideas yourself. You’re a black man and not a liberal? Sorry, you no longer count as a black politician. You don’t make things more diverse. You don’t make more equal representation. Oh, and you’re gay? But you became a politician because of foreign policy and free trade? And you actually don’t care about fighting for gay marriage rights?

Perish the thought, dear. You are not gay any longer. If you do not subscribe to the ideas of white, middle-class liberals, please line up and have your race, gender identity, and sexuality erased. You are now a rich, white, straight, cisgendered, able-bodied man. Please don’t complain about this-it’s no one’s fault but your own. Were you so naive as to think you could follow your genuine feelings on political issues?

Liberals, pat yourself on the back. Of course it’s your God-granted right to erase people’s race/gender/etc when they cease to agree with you.

  2. baggers are braindead coppertops (and even the copper is fake) Says:

    and of course anyone who doesn’t like starting irrational wars or other ‘profitable’ or exciting death/mayhem is a ‘phony american’.
    so applying your rushbeau [cough]logic[/cough], why don’t we just declare that every conservative who curses & cusses about al gore REALLY ACTUALLY just hates white american males? yep. all redstate women actually hate men!

    this ‘liberals are sooo intolerant of us intolerant folks’ pseudowhine is so 1980′s. [snivel boo=hoo]why do those liberals hate us haters[/snivel]?

    “It’s difficult to write coherently about such an insulting and frustrating topic, and I hope I managed to.”
    no, but i have. you’ve just re-spewn the same old dittohead spoonfed “outrage” (which actually originated as a joke. similar to those ‘kill the whales’ stickers.)

      Hmmmm I’m not entirely sure what you’re trying to say.

      If it seems like I talk mostly about problematic issues with the Democratic Party and liberals, it’s because I lean that way on most issues but I cannot subscribe to a system that is rife with racism and hypocrisy.

      That is not to say that the Republican and Conservative side are without sin, but in either case, I do no believe in choosing the “lesser evil” of the parties. I will not lend myself to either side unless one shapes the hell up.

      As for respawning old arguments, I’m not too concerned if someone has talked about this before. Did you know that both Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz were each credited with inventing calculus? I tend to support Newton, as he was handsomer :)
