Okay, now for the offensive Hillary Rosen and Bob Somerby. First off, shut your pie hole, Bob Somerby. You're no friend to women. You've repeatedly ripped off C.I. and never once linked to her because you really only slobber over men and probably wouldn't have linked to Digby to begin with if you hadn't thought she was a man to begin with.
You make no efforts to call out sexism and defend Larry Summers and assorted others. And now you think you can open your sexist mouth and declare that Rosen's remarks were no big deal?
Why don't you shut your mouth when you know nothing. No one needed to hear from you. You've never done a damn thing for women and you never will, so just shut up, Bob Somerby, you pompous ass who think you have the right to determine what's important and what's not.
You who, in 2012, still can't shut up about Al Gore.
Guess what? Al Gore doesn't mean s**t to most of our lives. Hilary Rosen's comments were offensive and needed to be called out. You're an idiot and a little boy beating his dick off to fantasies about Al Gore. Are you unable to find a real profession, Bob Somerby?
Women don't need you. For your entire online life, you've done s**t to help women. So just shut your damn mouth.
Ruth and Trina address this better than I can:
Hilary Rosen's remarks were offensive. I do not stop being a thinking person, capable of discussing the economy or any other issue I want to, because I have children.
I think Ann Romney was far too kind to Hilary Rosen when she noted that Rosen chose to work and raise children.
HILARY ROSEN DOES NOT HAVE PRIMARY CUSTODY OF THOSE CHILDREN.
I'm sorry, Rosen, you're not raising those children.
If a man and a woman break up and the woman's awarded custody and the man sees the children on weekends and Wednesdays, we don't say he's raising them.
When it's two women who break up and one woman's awarded custody, that's who's raising them.
Hilary Rosen's ex-partner raises her children. And that's why she won't Meet the Press this weekend, she ended up getting calls today about who is raising the kids? It's going to be a little harder for Hilary Rosen to claim she's just a mother herself and knows how hard it is to raise kids since she's the weekend parent in this equation.
Hilary Rosen, damn liar. Bob Somerby, sexist pig.
