And white feminists lose their minds all over again.

Now, yes, I'm endorsing Barack Obama. I wouldn't say I've got the "mania" that I keep hearing about. A good deal of my commitment to him as a candidate has been the direct result of the racism used as a tool by the Clinton campaign--hell, that's the reason she lost the black vote all over the country.

However, I've seen plenty of bullshit flying out of the mouths of Clinton supporters, and in particular white women who (over)identify with their candidate of choice.

Well, today, it hit a fever pitch.

The vileness of the comments on NARAL's website after its endorsement of Obama is real spesh. Seriously.

You know something? They can have feminism. I'm not going to fight them for it anymore. When they're done clawing each others' eyes out over who gets to be equal to white men so that they can all, together, oppress the rest of us, give me a call.

Until then, I'm not interested in the F-word.
