Why? Because blogtopia is pissing me off.
I'm not saying "nobody blogs about stuff." Because, well, that would be a lie. Even "big name" bloggers actually post about these things. And hell, I'm not any sort of actionable information machine these days.
It's just that, post about boobs, get over a hundred comments.
YANGON, Myanmar - Soldiers and police took control of the streets Friday, firing warning shots and tear gas to scatter the few pro-democracy protesters who ventured out as Myanmar's military junta sealed off Buddhist monasteries and cut public Internet access.
On the third day of a harsh government crackdown, the streets were empty of the mass gatherings that had peacefully challenged the regime daily for nearly two weeks, leaving only small groups of activists to be chased around by security forces.
"Bloodbath again! Bloodbath again!" a Yangon resident yelled while watching soldiers break up one march by shooting into air, firing tear gas and beating people with clubs.
Thousands of monks had provided the backbone of the protests, but they were besieged in their monasteries, penned in by locked gates and barbed wire surrounding the compounds in the two biggest cities, Yangon and Mandalay. Troops stood guard outside and blocked nearby roads to keep the clergymen isolated.
GENEVA, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Some 480,000 Iraqis have registered as internal refugees or IDPs since the start of 2007, bringing the total in the country to more than 2.25 million, the IOM relief body said on Wednesday.Etc., etc., etc.
The IOM, or International Organisation for Migration, said most of those leaving their homes were fleeing sectarian violence -- with 88 percent saying they had moved after being targeted for their religious identity.
"The situation is becoming a displacement catastrophe," Dana Graber Ladek, a Jordan-based official for the IOM, told a news conference. "It is certainly the worst crisis of its type the whole (Middle East) region has seen since 1948."
I think all I'm saying is it gets really, really tiresome to see the more inconsequential things spark the most outrage again and again and again.
Sigh. I guess I'm not sure what my point is. I mean, beyond, 'What is the point of the Feminist blogosphere, anyway?' What are we doing with ourselves, besides "examining our choices?" There has to be something more to it, right?
