The long awaited resignation of Malu Fernandez has finally ended when the self-proclaimed diva stepped down from her high chair. With so many blogs talking about it, I have decided to just read this blog because it contains all the salient points in this matter. But I’m sure she’ll be back in a day or two.
While I do not find her articles funny, I think he who sinneth not should cast the first stone. We are all guilty of bitching about other people in one way or another because we are born that way. Not perhaps as openly as Malu did but all the same, we engaged in the same bigotry that we crusaded against at some point in our lives.
But with all that done and over with, I think we should just move on. There’s no use dwelling on anything negative for so long. It consumes you. And while the blogosphere’s move to literally remove her from where she was connected has succeeded, there’s no reason to celebrate. Why? Because the facts remain. In our rage against some people’s insensitivity, we have become insensitive and cruel. And because Malu Fernandez has never been truly repentant. For her to let up only to leave a subtle retort is not helping. Yes we can definitely wage wars against anything oppressive the way the government is using up all the yet-to-be-earned cash to spend on an all-out war against alleged terrorists, but is it really worth our time and energy?
