As for Carlin, if you believe that, then clearly feminism is lost on you. If middle class white women don't care about the plight of any other woman with a different skin color, then explain to me why is it that women (gasp....white middle class women) brought to the worlds attention female genital mutilation and breast rolling....two decidedly "none white" womens issues? Nevermind that we continue to fight for womens rights globally (me in Mexico) both with our voices, time and wallets. Never saw Carlin care much except when Comedy Central was filming him, Whoopi and Billy to raise funds for homeless people. After the cameras stopped rolling he most certainly took hoards of homeless men, women and children to his mid town Manhattan 46th floor apartment, right? Ever seen it? I have. He sure took NIMBY to a whole new level while of course pointing a crooked finger at everybody else.....particularly white middle class women.
The Carlin bit is almost 40 years old and might have meant more back then, and meant to help lighten the mood
In regards to his personal take on any of these issues.... I dont have a clue, hes a funny guy and thats enough for me.
I was just jumping on the "Working class women are evil" bandwagon.
There is no right,
There is no wrong,
Only popular opinion.
