All of my posts seem to be "awaiting moderation", regardless of content, at both PunkAssBlog (a feminist blog) and Glennsacks.com (an MRA blog). Ah, the perils of being a loose cannon.
I don't wish to seem unduly harsh in my "criticism" of this behaviour, since there have definitely been times when I've deserved moderation. I just find it funny that I'm now "under suspicion" from both sides.
This could be stemming from an artful piece of editing on PAB, on a thread in which I mildly criticised Glenn, found here.
The salient quote:
Glenn has been trying to get a discourse going on, specifically to influence the men’s movement with some mitigating influence from “the other side”. I see value in this approach, and try to do the same, only I’m not quite so concerned about appearances.
There are a LOT of MRA sites around that think Glenn is a pushover, a pansy, a Fifth Columnist to the Men’s Movement.
The way I see it, you have a choice between the Glenn Sacks’ of the world, or the guys more extreme than me.
To which Glenn replied:
“While [Glenn] can’t deny the success of F4J, he denounces their actions every time.”
Actually, I have praised and promoted F 4 J’s nonviolent protests countless times in newspaper columns, on the radio, and on my blog, going all the way back to 2003.
However, I have stated a tactical difference with them when they protest at judges’ or government officials’ homes. I believe it’s counterproductive, for reasons I explain at http://glennsacks.com/blog/?p=2923.
Obviously, Glenn takes offense at the characterization. To clarify, I responded in a rather lengthy post, which was summarily "hypnotoaded"....
Anyway, that's where that whole thing stands in case anyone's interested.
For the record, I personally don't think that of Glenn at all. In fact, I'll even go on record right here and say the man is admirable, and I wish I had a 10th of his character and integrity.
Unsurprisingly, that won't stop me from differing in opinion from him, nor will it stop me from vocalizing that difference to advocate my own position. After all, the man's not God.
And frankly, it's further testament to the man's character that he extends the platform on which his critics may stand. The fact I've been doing so for going on 2 years (I think) is a testament to his patience as well.
