"Guilty as charged. It turns out that I “completely agreed” with a comment that included the word ‘manure’." ~ Kevin LevinActually, Levin "completely agreed" with a comment that called a young woman he's never met "manure." All because she introduced a line of women's clothing that embraces a Southern style and theme. Personally, I think he owes the woman an apology, or at least a retraction of that insult. Certainly, Levin can dislike and criticize the clothing line. But projecting his associations with "Southern style" on someone else is silly and, as noted previously, reveals some serious insecurity.
Williams really needs to get a life. Although there is a Part 2 scheduled from Williams, I will do you all a favor and move on. ~ Kevin LevinAgain, Levin goes to the trouble of posting his displeasure over a young woman's Southern style clothing line (!?) and agreeing with calling that young woman "manure" (!?) and I'm the one who " really needs to get a life." R-i-i-i-i-ght.
Yes, were I Levin, I'd move on too. Wise to quit before you get further behind.
And you gotta love this:
I usually do ignore Williams, but once in a while I like to reward him with a response. After all, he puts a lot of time into posts about me. ~ Kevin LevinJust search his blog for posts with my name mentioned and see where he's spent "a lot of time." I stopped counting at 44 posts. Do it quickly though, he might delete them. But not to worry, I saved them all.
Thanks for all the rewards Kevin.
And notice all the projecting, the red herrings and the straw men in the comments section. Truly some insecure folks.
Update: "I simply linked to the story." ~ Kevin Levin
He did more than that. He offered his opinion on the story:
Levin did not write the italicized comments, but he owns them since he agrees "completely." Of course, that's his right. And its my right to offer my opinion on his opinion. Again, he can totally trash someone he doesn't know and can only make assumptions based on his preferred narrative, but doesn't particularly care for it when the tables are turned.
Part 2 on this coming tomorrow.
End of update.
Kevin Levin attempts to deflect my criticism over comments (to which he "completely" agreed) which called a young woman "manure" simply because she introduced a "a Fall fashion spread inspired by life on an antebellum plantation." Levin can bluster all he wants about my post, but he has a track record of this kind of thing. He's clueless when it comes to aspects of Southern heritage, culture and style which fall outside of his preferred, narrow narrative.
Levin then attempts some psychoanalyzing:
Much of Williams’s blogging comes from a place of deep insecurity.Let's see, he's ok with referring to a young woman (he's never met) as "manure" simply because she's marketing a line of clothing reflecting a Southern style; but I'm the one who's insecure. Uh-huh.
This is typical of Levin and those like him: put those who embrace their own perspective and celebration of Southern culture under a microscope, pick and poke and make fun of them - even insult and refer to a perfect stranger (apparently inferring all kinds of motives) as "manure" because of a clothing style (??!!), but when called on it, he becomes defensive.
He can dish it out, but he can't take it. So he reverts to an ad-hominem attack and says his critic is "insecure."
How lame and intellectually shallow.
