I started a bit of a snark war on the Huffington Post yesterday. I read this: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/barbara-hannah-grufferman/mommy-wars_b_1584446.html and saw a comment from a fool basically saying women need to stay home and make babies because that’s the way it’s always been.
Well, the historian in me couldn’t take THAT, so I had to respond to the jackass’s comment. As of this morning I’ve gotten FOUR replies from him, all in a very condescending, chauvinistic tone. I’m pretty amused: sometimes it’s worth the effort to poke at insecure bullies just to see what happens. Snort.
I’m debating responding to his response, but since he essentially outed himself as a fool I don’t think it’s necessarily worth the effort. Therefore, I’m blogging about it instead.
Yeah. I couldn’t keep my mouth shut, so I DID end up responding. Sigh. Smart isn’t always my strong suit, I guess, but sexist intimidation is so irritating.
