A friend of mine and Obama die-hard, Mike splits from Blogger over the flagging issue. Getting my Blogger account locked means that to-this-date I still cannot post on my Blogger blog (locked 6/25). So, Mike is mistaken when he notes that it doesn’t stop us from posting. In this case, a bunch of us were targeted, Mike sees that, and though he and I don’t see eye to eye on the presidential race, I appreciate his taking a stand on this. When you get a new blog up Mike, let me know.
In the meantime, Uppity continues her update of locked blogs and their new locations.

Update: Red Queen posts at The Hillary 1000 on Male Privilege, Cyberstalking and the Election
A little while back, Feministe reported on an awesome Latina teacher in LA who got fired for teaching her mostly minority students about their own histories instead of the regurgitated white bread crap that has been forced down most of our throats. We can’t have that. OMG, POC finding out that their entire history is not one of mere oppression/subjugation! If they learn the histories of successful movements against the oppressors, they might get ideas! They might not be willing to accept the lives of poverty that we have planned for them. Shut that teacher up before she undoes centuries of patriarchal brain washing by letting students read about Malcolm X.
And the same principle applies to women. Shut those uppity bitches up before other women (and sympathetic men) catch on and ruin it for all of us. That’s why the hopium smokers keep trolling Hillary blogs. Hillary reminded us that there is still a lot of fighting to be done. And she woke up a giant community of women who are tired of being quiet for the good of the party. Hillary may have suspended her campaign, but the spirit of possibility and the drive to create something better has been awakened in many of us. And for those of us who have never been quiet, we now have much larger audiences of willing and enthusiastic listeners. That is what the trolls fear most. That people will hear us and agree.
