Sigh. All this political correctness is giving me a headache. I think I'll have an aspirin. (And a slice of cake, too, even if it is only 9:30 a.m.)


Who am I to tell someone what does or doesn't make sense when it comes to self-identification?


That comes across as more than a little "No True Scotsman"-ish.

Awful stuff right there. Like you, I hope they all keep talking. Scream it from the roof tops ladies.

ETA: It's not really even the bigotry - although these four women have clearly shown themselves to be bigots. It's about identity politics - about the increasing pressure on liberals to conform, to not stray from party lines, to not disagree, to not have their own voice in all things, to let the D party identify what they should care for and speak out about.

The pressure is increasing for brown people, black people, women, gays, Muslims, trans-gendered to become voices only for THOSE issues - as if a gay black woman doesn't care about the tax code, about illegal immigration, about the economy, about a regulatory climate conducive to the establishment of small business start-ups, about failing schools and increasing crime, about bad actors on the world stage - and more. There is increasing pressure on liberals (particularly minority liberals) - pressure put forth by the party elite - that the unwashed masses become a one-box-checked-human-being, instead of a free thinking, dynamic, creative, complex, fully contributing citizen of these United States.

"Q" means either questioning or *****.

Yes, and her point is:

Forget notions of working toward the common good or the national good. All politics is identity politics based on race, sex and religion, and power for our people is all that matters. [Insert your favorite Lenin quote.]

What difference does it make how old I am? But to satisfy your demeaning curiosity, I am a part of GenX. I just turned 48. I am certainly not your grandmother. Based upon your comments, I suspect you're quite ignorant and typical. In any case, it doesn't do you any favors to make sweeping generalizations about groups of people you don't even know nor have had any interaction with.
