We play a little, the baby and me, then it's nap time and I get online.
This morning, I had time because Grandma is here.
So I go into my e-mail account and I'm reading e-mails from readers and see that there's a comment to a comment I left regarding the awful and racist Lena Dunham.
Ross Bonaime loves Girls, loves it, lives it as much as he can. He wrote the garbage article at Paste magazine praising Lena's awful hosting skills and episode.
Here's the exchange:
Tonight, I will be going to town on Little White Ross. I will be using some points Ava and C.I. made about the racist aspect -- made to me, not in the two pieces they've already written on the subject.
In fact, the three of us haven't done any joint-writing since I got pregnant so I might see if they want to work on a response with me.
But it's all so damn racist and sexist and that includes Little Ross and his original remarks in the article -- remarks, as Ava and C.I. were explaining over the weekend, like so many other men -- that were patronizing and insulting.
But thank you, White Ross.
It really is great for me, an African-American woman, to be corrected that there was no racism or sexism involved.
Thank you, White Boy, for informing me of those 'facts.' As a man and as a White person, your opinion means so much more than mine, right? And as a man and a White person, you're better equipped than I am to judge sexism and racism, right?
May I show my thanks to you with Betty's well known reply?
Kiss my Black ass.
