Louis,

"My critique of Fowler's article, however, was directed at wondering why,
as I wrote, "Jolie has been singled out for such scorn" since she "neither
created nor can resolve the health care crisis. That responsibility lies
squarely with the medical-industrial complex, including its government
lackeys, who sustain the class disparities of the for-profit health care
system. The conditions are ripe for a movement that demands health care for
all, but it must take aim at the appropriate target to be effective."

While I am committed to a class analysis, I am also well aware that women's
oppression, including the degrading sexual objectification of women's
bodies, is endemic to the capitalist system. My article was about sexism
and the responsibility of those on the left (including self-proclaimed
"radical" critics) to oppose it. Sexism is a serious matter, and it
warrants a serious response."
Louis, if you think this issue is simply about the use of the terms "tits"
you're either profoundly deluded, or simply and opportunistically lowering
your head and tail awaiting the immediate, affirming ass-sniff of your
fellow CP pack-members...Watching this thread unfold, the safe bet is on
the latter

For all your denouncing of the Zinovievites, you grow ever more reckless
and petulant in the role of independent, axe-grinding
sectarian...dialectics in motion.

Pathetic.
