They're reading our crap, over there

Our little secret is out. Garth George has reached an international audience, first at Feministing and now at About.com. So, there goes our liberal reputation.

Meanwhile, one Mark Driscoll has written Porn-again Christian, a "frank discussion of pornography and masturbation" which is illustrated with a skull and a pistol. Pastor Driscoll prefaces his work with this warning:
Because I am speaking to fellow men, my tone may not be well suited for some women and, therefore, I would request that they not read this booklet, unless they are a wife whose husband has read it first and he can discuss its contents with her in love.

I study in advance all of my partner's reading materials. It's the only way to be sure.

I'm sure our reputation will be restored by today's historic "first official inspection of a New Zealand prison by a woman Corrections Minister".

I saw that frozen video frame and I thought to myself "I bet that's Ray Davies playing Lola".

Sensational!

"Liberal reputation". So New Zealand has differences of opinion within its shores. Horror!

Mr. George has been aware of this for a week or so, and referenced it in his column...

Note how the brave truth-speaker dare not repeat the word 'misogynist' for fear of confusing his Everyday Kiwi readership.

No, it's probably because they can't spell tht word misogynist.
Anyway, George is in his eighties and sure to cark it eventually...
look at dreadful US octogenerian right-winger Jesse Helms for instance...

Despite everything, I warm to the old codger for publishing his critics.

Paul, I read all of Mr. Driscoll's polemic, without asking my husband (or, strictly speaking, "husband"). It hurt my aesthetic, is all I am prepared to say in a public forum, and not at all because of all the jokes about erections.

My friend Jianyi hu from the Netherlands makes his effort to recommend me a superb leveling website www.gmlvl.com. I know he ever made three orders , package of Fast lvl55-70, package of Fast lvl70-80, custom order lvl73 - 75. they were done safe and sound in advance. he is so pleased with their terrific handleveling service that more orders should be placed with more lower price due to Christmas arrival.
