Why Craigslist is scary.

Enough said?

wow. I guess so.

(and did you notice it's in south dakota???)

as someone who attended high school and college in south dakota, i'm inclined to wonder if this isn't more why south dakota is scary, rather than why craigslist is scary. =)

Did you know that we have, like, white power lesbians in SFSD? True story.

bfp - oh yeah. I noticed. And now I'm looking suspiciously at everyone.

It's not that I don't already know that there are people like this out there. I just like to pretend that they all live far, far away.

meejies - yes, you're right. I do find it somewhat disturbing, though, that craigslist allows this sort of thing to be advertised. I suppose had they advertised a new chapter of Aryan Nation or the Klan, that would be pushing it, but a Caucasian-American group is, I guess, innocent-sounding enough to get past the radar.

Anna - I didn't. So, what, do they have like their own white power tracts that somehow make being queer acceptable in the eyes of Hitler and white supremacy?! (Though if an Italian-American can lead a white power group, as that guy Ricci (?) did in the '80s, then anything is possible...Italians, of course, not being considered "white" when they first got to America.)

wow. I'm going to remember that for the next time i hear a white lesbian woman tell me she can't be racist because she's a lesbian.

that is seriously messed up.

I have no idea what their reasoning is, but I have seen their car before and it is covered with outrageously awful white supremacist stickers, and rainbow junk. So weird. You will probably see it eventually; Sioux Falls is not that big.

Anna: arrrggghhhh.

I've been boggled enough by garden-variety white racist and even (gargh) Republican lesbians (as in, yay, Bush, and no, I don't think any of their last names were "Cheney").

the only white supremacists who were also okay with homosexuality (in theory) I'd ever heard of was this weird-ass tiny group of creepy Satanists.

but, I suppose with 6-7 billion people in the world, no matter how outrageous a combination you can think of, -someone- probably actually embodies it.
