You know.

All of this crazy shit conservative religious people are coming up with has to be the largest communal trolling in all of history. No one can really believe this shit.

I am not surprised.

For years I've been strongly against PETA and will continue to remain as such.

OH. One fun fact left out of that article; PETA hired a known convicted arsonist who they would send to public schools to preach that PETA bullshit. This man taught students how to make 'devices' and encouraged them to use it as a form of protest.

Well, Thatcher's dead.

There'll be a lot of comments in very poor taste before long.

Since I'm both Canadian (so, for the most part know crap-all about her) and wasn't alive yet during most of Thatcher's influental days, I've got nothing at all to say about it.

I am just really sick of people taking every opportunity to bash Thatcher right now. Yes, I thought she did some really crappy stuff, too. Yes, criticism of her more atrocious actions and policies is warranted. But y'all didn't have shit to say when she was still alive and now you're all pouring out of the woodwork just to spit on her grave. I guess the WOO WE HATE MARGARET THATCHER DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD bandwagon is the place to be right now, huh?

And I'm seeing a lot of it from the "it's so wrong and sad that women will take every opportunity to tear down other women" camp, too.

I am inherently bothered by the notion that as a woman, any and all criticism I might have for another woman is automatically seen as me playing into society wanting me to hate other women.

For one, it takes any kind of criticism and makes it into something that has to be an attack. A good criticism is not an angry attack, whether it be on a person or a movie or a piece of artwork. Criticism, real criticism, is not an attack. It doesn't mean that I hate a movie, a piece of artwork, or a person. Real life isn't deviantart, you can't block people because they point out your anatomy needs improvement. We should be criticizing things in our world in thoughtful ways and examining prominent figures.

Secondly it assumes that any negative feelings a woman has for another woman is solely based on something society dictated her to do. Criticism from a woman to another woman is already trivialized and blamed on jealousy or envy to begin with. That isn't to say we shouldn't be discussing the very shitty fad of women being raised to be against other women (I hung out with the boys, the girls where catty sluts. Teehhee), but defaulting any criticism a woman has about another woman to be solely and entirely based on 'women hate' is trivializing that woman's opinion and infantizing her into something that isn't capable of 'knowing what she means'.

Actually, people said a lot of shit about her when she was still alive. Not in the U.S. so much because she was pretty popular here, being a friend and ally of Reagan. All I really know about her is that all the British bands I listened to in the 80's wrote songs about how much they hated her and how they were going to dance on her grave.

I'm not on FB or Tumblr or Twitter, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that there are ignorant Americans born in the 80's and 90's going, "She was a Conservative? I don't know anything about her but I automatically hate her!" That's why I'm not on FB or Tumblr or Twitter. The things I've read in NYT, the Economist, etc. have been pretty even-handed if not completely laudatory.

I think that it's fine to criticize her policies. Her life and death are notable because of what she did, so that is fair game. There's no reason to shy away from the fact that she was divisive and many people were hurt by what she did. On the whole, was she better for the country than not? I don't know enough to have an opinion. But it's not like she committed genocide or tortured people in secret prisons. She wasn't evil.
