another shrill post from your bitch, Wacky Mommy

January 5th, 2009

“Don’t call me shrill, ho.”

The last time I was called shrill, hmm, let’s see. Hmm, hmmm, hummers! That was it! My boss wanted me to blow him and I wouldn’t.

Then one of the other managers (female, unbelievably enough. Oh, wait. Naw, I can believe it) wanted me to explain myself. Apparently he thought blow jobs were part of my job description, complained to her, she was dispatched to “deal” with “the situation.”

“It’s just, you don’t usually sound so… shrill,” she told me.

So forgive me, Anna Griffin, that I am a little “p.o’ed” at you for calling our recently-elected City Commissioner “shrill.”

Steve just wrote a good post about said column. Then told me, “Doesn’t matter, all their links go dead after two weeks, anyway.” So I won’t bother giving them a link. But I’ll give him one. A link! Settle down, now.

    Oh I’m with you on women using that stupid old school anti-woman stuff on ourselves….like talking about her hair instead of her policies, etc. But unfortunately, I think this kind of crap is so embedded into our culture that even women play into it, and unfortunately, Anna did when she used the term shrill. Totally not cool. But I read her column where she recognized it and and apologized, and I was pretty impressed. It may be lame-o old school to throw a term like shrill out there, but it takes a new school honest journalist to admit when she’s wrong and to do it with some honesty.

    Lelo, that was no apology. That was more dig-dig. Maybe we’ll see more substantive work from Griffin in the future, who knows. I WANT SUBSTANCE.
