Is UNC’s Coed-nitwit “For Real” ??

Coed on Beach
BobLee
September10/ 2015

I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP (BUT maybe she is?).   What you will read below is, for all I can tell, the sincere editorial plea of a college-age female person attending UNC-CH named Blake Dodge.   A plea for someone / anyone to “Please understand how difficult it is every day to be me”.

Blake Dodge (an androgynous name only a romance novelist could love?) used the N&O’s Op/Ed page on Sept 4, 2015 to reach out to her fellow humans for their compassion and understanding.

The N&O’s “award-winning political” fop – RobReilleWho – once wrote how “I found myself weeping” while watching The Vagina Monologues.  Lord knows what Rob did while reading this….Father Daughter

I have to be careful here since I identify as the male parent of a female person.   That either I or my daughter would ever “talk like this Blake person” is inconceivable.  I am also sensitive that this Blake Dodge has a father back in Beaufort who hopefully loves her and tries his best to cope with this “stage she is going thru” and prays each night that she will emerge from this “stage” sooner rather than later.   Tomorrow being not soon enough.

As I now stand poised on Life’s 17th tee, I look back on those past 16 stages. One thing they all had in common is NONE of them were “fair”.  I ain’t expecting any different from these next two stages.

My daughter a/k/a “Kid” is now 27.  She went thru various “stages” getting to 27.  I went thru my own various stages as her daddy as we both got to “now”.  None of her or my stages were anywhere near the “Say Whaaaa?” of this “person”

LA had its vapid “Valley Girls” back in the 80-90s.   Does Chapel Hill now have it’s own special species of female persons?  I’m betting Blake Dodge did not think much of that Alabama Sorority video.

Maybe Blake has a future as a Real Housewife of Orange County?   The Orange County in SoCal…. not the one “amid the pines”.

I really don’t need to offer much more editorial smart-aleckness to this.   Anything I say will only detract from:

Blake Dodge’s heart-rendering account of:

“A Day in the Life of a Reluctant Carolina Princess…. without a thigh gap”.

Oh… have I mentioned that Blake Dodge is a Morehead Cain Scholar…. but, unlike Haley Koch, this one is NOT a porn star, that we know of.

HOAX  ADVISORY:  As of 7:15 AM Fri, I have set the odds at 65-35 this COULD BE “a Spoof”.   65% Blake is indeed a self-absorbed little wing-nut…. but 35% maybe a “VERY clever spoofer”.  If the latter then I HAVE TO MEET HER!   🙂

Hmmmm From Beaufort which would have made her an East Carteret Mariner. However, All of her state records were set as a West Carteret Patriot, meaning Morehead City or Atlantic Beach. Another clue.

For anyone who might enjoy the delightfully snarky commentary of another person who identifies as a female of the species, allow me to suggest that you check Katrina Timpf’s take on this “article” which appeared in National Review Online yesterday. Ms. Timpf is NRO’s regular writer on political correctness/feminism run amuck.

Blake failed to state if father identifies as male. Must be careful not to assume these days.

BobLee…. We hope all is well!! So, so sorry we haven’t been in contact much lately. 2nd year is crazy busy and we’ve been in the middle of job interviews for the last four weeks– but good news is our #1 and #7 rankings in our class (out of 226 people) have led to amazing job offers as of late!! . As for the article — Nicole and I could not disagree more with young woman’s column. We feel we could speak to this as two women who held leadership positions on UNC’s campus and commanded respect on a daily… Read more »

Really creepy …..That reply of yours a few columns ago to Doug about the Electric Horseman and the chrome trailer hitch (Jane Fonda) had me smiling, though …..Wonder how Blake would react to that? I went to “Sharky’s” last night to sit at the famous bar and listened to live music, a blend of old ballads and rock and reggae…..A Khmmer rendition of “Hotel California” had a nice sound and set me to thinking…..of college sweet hearts and romances of the past…..pretty girls and shyness and the delicate art of flirting…..trips over to Granville Towers to win over a Jewish… Read more »

Hi, I’m going to say this is a brilliantly executed social experiment. The author is getting incredible commentary on N&O. On the Blake Dodge twitter account (i.e., photos appear to be the same female-identified person), she references Leonardo Decapprio as a “male hottie” and calls the US women’s soccer team “sexy AF” (i.e., AF = “as f**k”). If not a social experiment or an adventure into satire, then heaven help our society when the big-butted, thigh-gap-challenged, slightly off-kilter eyebrowed, symmetrically blessed, shower masochists raise little narcissists of their own. But I’m leaning towards very clever young lady who pulled off… Read more »

The 6 pack of beer I buy weekly with what would been spent on the N&O looks like a good investment. Correction, 4 pack, my beer tastes have improved.

BobLee, I am still pondering why a girl from Beaufort says she thinks about Halifax County schools. Maybe she rode the bus 150 miles each way every day and that is the cause of all her consternation.

After reading that (whatever it was) the only thing my mind could think was, “This person that identifies as a girl is issuing a public challenge to Bob Kennel to see who could write an editorial with the most sentences beginning with the letter ‘I’.” Perfectly suited “To seem, rather than, to be”.

To pilfer your ever popular…..”FRIENDS….We have a WINNAH…..!” That was very inspirational and uplifting. She deserves a spot with Colbert. She could hold the KKK Paraphonia with her perfect teeth (support by her very small chest) and then use her toned abs to nestle the Trump photo so that Colbert could get ONE more viewer. SHEESH seems like such an understatement. I admit to “Identifying as a male”. I think that Ronda Rousey eats a very sexy Carls Jr. Meal. I also raised a daughter and changed more of my 9 YO GD’s diapers at Grand Daddy Day car than… Read more »

Drivel comes to mind but stay awake anyway because they walk among us and they multiply. Well at least that used to be the case. Pretty sure this dog hunts with some in the current regime over there. They ain’t gonna be happy until everyone ain’t happy.

Just what the Hill needs…pathetic.

BL, thanks for reprinting this from the N&O. I wouldn’t have seen it otherwise. Lord help these poor nitwits that prattle on about identifying who or what they might be this week or economic justice or any of the rest of horse hockey in that ill-written diatribe.
Mahmoud, in his corner of the cave in Tora Bora, doesn’t care about identifying. He simply wants to behead or die in the process and score his 72 virgins.
I hope Blake and Mahmoud never meet.
I’ll pray for the sheep dogs.
Damn……….. Just damn.

When I first read the story in the paper I though the writer was a transgendered male since her/his name was Blake and there were so many references to identifying as a male or female……after all it IS Carolina we are talking about. If she thinks her life is hard she should go live in Syria for a while to get some perspective……..and yes I have two grown daughters.
