As one of my fellow posters rightly commented, how are they Marxist if they are a corporations?
Um, wouldn't Macy's make more money making clothes for both men and women-which is kinda their purpose as a corporation?
And they're apparently using androgynous manikins now...what? Are they really? I must go to the nearest Macy's store after work to see if he/she is really as full of it as he/she probably is.

This is moving out of the realm of funny and into just plain sad.

@Brendan Rizzo: It's simply the fact that you do it so often. You mention this sort of thing every other post, whereas Xotan only does so once in a while. Frankly, at this point, it would be dishonest of me to say I didn't agree with you and Headache to some extent, but go easy and chillax about it. You're getting your ego into it and letting at least a piece of it hinge on the accomplishments of your country. Don't. That's the kind of thinking that precedes nationalism and jingoism.

This whole diatribe, while it comes off as paranoid and alarmist from any angle, it becomes straight up ridiculous when you consider that the poster is mostly just angry because she thinks that "the State" has better propaganda and indoctrination than the church.

Macy's is a privately-owned company. The government has absolutely nothing to do with how it operates, or the kinds of fucking mannequins they want to use.
6/8/2012 11:00:57 AM
It's true. I went into Macy's and all they had for sale were copies of Das Kapital and busts of Marx. All the staff were in drag and they were being constantly monitored by a telescreen that they couldn't turn off.
Luckily, savagesusie is the bearer and keeper of The Truth, and is a shining example to the rest of us. If only we could all attain to her standard of intellectual clarity and good clean Christian heterosexuality.
@Kulgur: Orwell wasn't really a Marxist, just a democratic socialist, with some sympathies toward anarchism.

I knew that Macy's was run by commies! Why else would they have a red star as their logo?! :P
6/8/2012 11:30:44 AM
Ummm, yes, susie, you go on thinking that a massive capitalist corporation like Macy's is conditioning the world to be Marxist like Aldous Huxley's Brave New World.
We'll just be over here. Laughing at you.
6/8/2012 11:41:36 AM
You've got it all wrong. The goal is to make men and women, boys and girls, of equal value. It shouldn't matter whether you're born an XX or an Xy. But, you'd still be either an XX or an Xy.
The only brainwashed person I see is you, susie.
6/8/2012 11:54:11 AM
I'll bet 'stoopidsoozie' never read "Brave New World" & "1984".
And Mannequins are stupid statue-like thingys that display clothes. Good gravy, stoopidsoozie!
6/8/2012 12:11:07 PM
A list of books savagesusie has never read:
All of them.
6/8/2012 12:29:12 PM
Susie is apprehensive about brainwashing because hers was wiped clean with a Q-Tip.

"Notice the androgyny in the manikins [at Macy's]"
Nope, not really. Undocumented assertion #1.
"Marxists want to make men and women interchangeable"
And, #2... make that wild, nonsensical assertion.
"so they can destroy the family unit—it is radical egalitarianism"
"the State will raise the children."
And #4. Even more sh*t-headed than the first three.
On and on we could go, with no sentence making better sense than the one before it. An average day for savagesusie.

1) Mannequins (that is the proper spelling) are made unisex to save money - they don't have to make two different versions of the same thing, so they're easier to mass-produce. This is the pinnacle of capitalism.
2) George Orwell (the man who wrote 1984) was a socialist. That tends to make fundies' (and frankly non-fundie conservatives') heads explode, so let me explain. There is a difference between socialism and communism. Communism is socialism taken to its extreme, with governmental controls replacing civil liberties. Orwell was (rightly) against this. Socialism is simply government-maintained economic equality and stability. None of the bullshit you assign to it.
6/8/2012 1:14:18 PM
They use androgynous "manikins" so they don't have to keep separate inventory. It's just easier that way. That was probably the extent of the decision making behind it.
People like savagesusie really think they are the center of everyone's attention.
A case of bloated self importance.
In reality no one gives a shit.

Next on the Marxist Agenda: Floor Tiles. When looking down at a tile floor, it is clear that each and every one of the individual floor tiles look the same. This is obviously a marketing gimmick by the communists to sway the population into thinking everyone is equal in every way! Even after closing, all the tiles are cleaned by a janitor, suggesting that good communist citizens wait for someone else to care for their needs and give them handouts!
Will promotion of Marxism in society never end?
6/8/2012 1:21:10 PM
Oh, its savagesusie, never mind.
I was going to point out that the manikins at Macy's are sort of sexless so they can be used for both male and feale clothes display and save money.
But why ruin a good conspiracy theory with facts?
6/8/2012 1:24:26 PM
destroy the family unit
It is only with a certain degree of horror that I try to imagine savagesusie's family life.
I envision it as a mixture of American Gothic and Rick Santorum style home schooling sociophobia.
Just imagine if she has kids. Terribile dictu! Can you see them meeting up with "real" kids after spending their first 12 years hidden away behind mommy's protection? Yikes!
Btw, I think savagesusie should be chosen as Romney's vice presidential running mate. That would give the Republican ticket that delicate balance it needs. ;-)
6/8/2012 1:26:30 PM
Really? Is this what conservatives are reduced to these days?
6/8/2012 1:37:55 PM
Uhhh...? Mannequins have always been like that, dumbass!
6/8/2012 2:00:57 PM
When you think mannequins are a part of a communist plot, it's time for you to be committed.
6/8/2012 3:06:29 PM
This lady does know that the reason they have androgynous mannequins is because it's cheaper..they can wear male/female clothing and still show it off. Right?
It's a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a bunch of male and female mannequins.
Attempting to save money does not a Marxist scandal make.

Classic Savagesusie: everybody's a state-manipulated idiot except me, because I'm so much smarter than everyone else.

Raised by Horses"Notice the androgyny in the manikins [at Macy's]-—Marxists..."
If Glenn Beck has Nazi Tourettes
, then Susie here is gifted with the Marxist variation.
