It's hard to say what's the best part of Sabotabby's post about how recently declassified documents exposed a 70s-era spying program conducted by Mounties on feminist organizations, but the parts where the Mounties had to file reports on groups of women described as "uncombed" singing songs of sisterhood is up there. But just read the whole thing. I'm also impressed with this link she includes to the ever-fun crank Henry Makow on how blue jeans signal the fall of decent womanhood. Not only will no one marry you if you say "fuck", no one will marry you if you wear blue jeans, ladies.


Favorite quotes:

"Slovenly" "Drab" Unkempt" "Slatternly" "Blowzy" --many adjectives come to mind to describe most women who wear jeans.

But usually these women are alone and don't look happy. Often they look angry and confused. Usually they are talking on a cell phone or listening to their ipod.

What this tells me is that women, in Makow's presence, become angry and unhappy, and will turn to their electronic devices as a way to signal to him that they really don't have the mental space to dedicate to the imperious demands on their attention issued by a stranger who feels entitled. The iPod and the cell phone are the great blessings of women in public. I used one last night to demonstrate to a man that whatever he felt he had to say to me was no doubt fascinating, but alas, I just simply have to finish my phone call until I had managed to put geographic distance between us. I wasn't actually on it, but whatever.

There is nothing more beautiful than a women wearing a summer dress. I can still remember a young woman I saw five years ago wearing a frock. This is how powerful femininity is.

Remember, ladies, if you wear a dress in public, you may unwittingly become the subject of years of Makow's depraved masturbatory fantasies should he see you. Are you really sure you wouldn't rather just wear the jeans?
