Above is one of the misogynous comments etched with venomous guile, like a scarlet letter, across a media image of Nadya Suleman. She is facing a particular form of contempt, a rage reserved for the woman who has the audacity to have many children without f*cking or living with a man. "Bad Mom Legacy" indeed! How dare she have children without having sex with "the father", or at least having the patriarchally correct decency to pretend to rely on "one man" for support?!
A follow-up on the post below:
One of the things I like about blogging, as opposed to publishing via a press or periodical, is that I retain the ability to adjust things, should adjustments be necessary, to clarify a thought or position. Such was the case with the last post, on Nadya Suleman.
But, not only did I revise the piece, I also then reposted it without the "Read more" link at the bottom, leading to, uhhh, the rest of the piece.
I can't guarantee there will be no more changes to that piece but I can assure you that as of right now, the whole piece is available to be read! (Below.)
