Glamour Mag: Being Conservative is “Most Intimate Problem”

By Debbie Schlussel
Why do I read stupid “women’s” magazines, like Glamour and Cosmo? So you don’t have to. I tell you what your wives, girlfriends, and maybe even (if you are a woman) you are reading.
The February (Valentine’s Day) issue is most interesting. In addition to featuring a picture of Mary Cheney and her “partner” and gushing over how cool it is that they appeared together at an official White House Dinner, Glamour gives us “Rescue Me!–Your Most Intimate Problems, Solved: Big Worries, Little Worries, Weird Worries.” And guess what February’s lead “worry” is?:

Q: I recently reconnected with a childhood friend and it turns out she’s very politically conservative. (I’m definitely not!) Is our friendship doomed?

Here’s Glamour’s answer, courtesy of advice columnist Irma Kurtz:

A: Not necessarily, assuming this woman hasn’t mentioned things that you found deeply offensive or upsetting. . . . Think “friendship lite” . . . .

So there you have it: Being a conservative woman is an “intimate problem” according to chick-mag Glamour. Remember that the next time a chick you know plunks down the three or four bucks for this trash.

That must be part of that famed liberal “tolerance” I have read so much about (but have never experienced). However being a New York City Republican I know what it is like being a depsised minority.

Our dear Debbie is in the trenches that no man would dare go into. Good thing we have her, or we might actually have to read this garbage ourselves.

I have a number of `liberal’ friends. As I’m sure all of you know,very few `liberals’ are able to discuss or debate issues in a rational manner and usually dissolve into name calling and the most inane talking points.
My standard agreement with them is that we don’t discuss politics. But as part of that, I refuse to put up with any of the usual snide comments and asides from THEM as well. it has to work both ways with me.
Anytime they forget, I remind them of our agreement and ask them if they want ME to start talking about something like ..oh, say Hillary Clinton cozying up to a rascist and Jew hater like Al Sharpton on MLK day? Or leftist Icon John Murtha hugging up to CodePink?
This tends to jolt them back into reality and we can go back to what we were doing before the nastiness surfaced.
Old rule of the road: you don’t step on my toes, i won’t step on yours.

Like most men, when I was in college, I made sure that most women I dated were Democrats….:-)

Does anyone have a “simpleton to human” filter to help me read “Danny”‘s posts?

Drink your own Kool-Aid, dude. If you don’t like it, get out.

Like I said,very few `liberals’ are able to discuss or debate issues in a rational manner and usually dissolve into name calling and the most inane talking points.
I could also add that they’re usually not very tolerant. Which is why I refer to people like
`jjames’ as `liberals’..because they really aren’t!
But thank you for proving my point so well, jjames. You’re a credit to your `liberal’ beliefs.

Good points, Freedom Fighter.
I’ve never met a liberal who is a live and let live person. They all want to force everyone else to live according to their whims and opinions. I’ve met some jerks who are conservatives, but a lot of nice ones, too. 99% of the liberals I’ve ever met are annoying, envious whiners.

debbie i had a jewish gf who was about 30 and she told me i was the first jewish republican she had ever met like i was a martian. like most of these nice jewish girls i came across she was not into politics but was (somewhat) inexplicably worried about abortion rights. of course i never tipped my hand until the deal was sealed.

Well, the first day I took it, and a few hours later, being Saturday, I wanted to take a nap. ,
