cruel bigot alert.

biascut has already posted about this, but did anyone else see this appalling tirade in today's Guardian magazine? I haven't read such hate-filled nastiness in a supposedly liberal paper since....another Julie. Gah. I mean, what is the point of that piece? It seems designed purely to belittle people for no real reason.

I say, give that page to Zoe Williams. She's funny, she's smart and she seems pretty nice from her column in Now magazine. Also, I love Things You Only Know If You're Not at Work, because tragically, I can identify with them all.

And, despite the bigotry evident in the magazine this week, I must confess I loved this piece in today's Guide section, in which small children rate classic rock, which includes the best description of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit" ever:

Sophie: It's making me think about doing bad things like putting snowballs down my sister's back.

Hee.

Re:
If she can ever go out in the queer community in public again after writing that venom.

Go out in public at all, anywhere, that ignorant witch. I am feeling especially cranky today, because I have been reading Heinlein, whose ideas on women totally piss me off. And now, before I have wholly recovered, I encounter Miss Vagina Police. *steams*

As far as I am concerned, a girl who dresses like a girl is a girl. A girl who dresses like a boy is a girl (unless she demands she be called Jake or Bob or such), and any being willing to go through the necessary steps is a girl as well. And if they keep their knees together when wearing a skirt, they are a lady. Except for Bette Davis, who is a Woman, and the nasty piece of work who wrote that column, who is a Bitch.

*fumes some more*
