In the tradition of pummeling, kicking, smacking, and otherwise beating the dead horse subject of polygamy, FMHer Rebecca trots out the example of FMH's third most despised Apostle in order to make her point about the inequality inherent in the system.
I don't know about you, but a petition for the "removal" of an Apostle signed by a grand total of 142 people - including Usama bin Laden and Belezebub - is quite comical. I'm sure the site's owner was grateful for the FMH plug.
Then, of course, come the comments. The Apostle in question recently remarried - in the Temple (thus drawing the ire of the FMH community) - after the death of his first wife. I thought one of the tenets of true feminism was the requirement to judge women by their accomplishments, intellect, and social graces rather than age and appearance.
One of the highlights of the "discussion" was this gem:
Also, I was more disturbed by the relative youth of Elder Nelson's new wife than by his polygamy. Does anyone know if this is a recent picture? She looks young enough to be his daughter.Well, there's a woman who truly *judges* people she's never met based solely on a picture. True feminism.
Then, true to form, other FMH peanut gallery regulars stand, grab the nearest rock, and proceed to criticize this woman's written work despite the fact few if any have actually read what she wrote.
Yep, this is true compassion and tolerance on parade.
