Femme Natale

The more I see of academic types online, the more I think they either aren't very smart, or aren't very ethical. Take, for example, Susan Natale, whom I identify by her last name to distinguish between her and Susan Hathaway, VaFlagger Extraordinaire.

I don't know how Natale pronounces her surname, but I pronounce it "Natalie" -- as in Natalie Wood, the actress, because Natale is such a drama queen. I don't think she'll ever make it up to the level of BParks and LibertyLamprey, but maybe with practice, she'll get closer. The primary difference is the type of anger leading to the drama. With BParks and Lamprey, it's heat -- far more heat than light, while Natale's appoach and delivery is glacial.

In a comment she recently left at Simpson's Crossroads flog, she quoted this recent blog post by me here at Backsass:

Apparently date stamps on internet posts and comments go right over her pretty little academic head. What's amazing is that she actually has a LINK to the TRUTH, but LIES about it.

No, no, no, no sugah...  You don't have to visit a site to copy a quote from it if the quote has been sitting on your hard drive for over three years. What happened on January 13, 2014 is that I made a graphic meme from the quote and posted it on Backsass, here:

But for those to whom the truth means something, I requested permission to use the quote from the person who posted it at The Spearhead (screen handle, Jabberwocky), on July 20, 2010, not January 13, 2014.

Jabberwocky replied the next day, July 21, 2010:

I did a copy/paste on that very day, made it a rich text document and saved it to my hard drive under the name JabberwockyQuote.rtf. Miraculously, it survived a couple of hard drive crashes and OS reinstalls, as most (though not all) of my data did -- with the original save date intact. Here's a screen shot of the directory it's stored in, made today:

What happened on January 13, 2014, as already noted, was my creation of a graphic meme using the quote by Justin Brown, identifying him by the name he gave me permission to use, and noting the date he posted it online. Here's a screenshot of the directory where the image file is stored, and the date I created and saved the jpg.

And here is Justin's quote all gussied up as a graphic meme --

While we're at it, let's note another of Natale's lies. In commenting on this meme at the Crossroads flog, she sed -- 
January 13, 2014

It is a tad concerning that Connie’s new quote of the week comes from a man who claims that he wants to be the next Paul Elam.
Well, no, Justin didn't say that, did he?  He said, "I'm prepared to make this movement part of my real life and actual identity, like Paul Elam."  That doesn't say he wants to be the next Paul Elam. Frankly, folks, unless she can produce a link to where he actually said that -- used those words -- that  he wants to be the next Paul Elam, it is an outright lie to claim he did. What he said in this comment means he is prepared to participate in the MRM using his real name, like Paul Elam has done -- not a pseudonym... you know, like "Jabberwocky" or "LibertyLamp" or "Spelunker."

So, what do y'all think? Is all the untruthfulness in the floggosphere deliberate or inadvertent?

My E-mail to Paul Elam


This isn't so much an update as it is an addendum for clarification. As I have written earlier, I perceive that the men's rights movement has its extremist wackos just as feminism has. My exact words were "fanatics, extremists and crazies." My exchange with Jabberwocky/Justin Brown appears in a comment thread that follows a guest post by Paul Elam at The Spearhead. Many of Paul's ideas are what I consider to be extremist, and there's not much he espouses that I agree with, primarily because I perceive them to violate the teachings of Christianity. Many of my differences with feminism are based on the same thing -- its violations of Christian beliefs. That and its basic dishonesty....
