Bicyclists, Motorists and the Language of Marginalization

An interesting read, I don’t agree on every point but parts make you think. So what do think? Should the term MotorIST join the ranks along with RacIST and SexIST?

•    Racism, Sexism and Mode-ism
•    Bicyclists as Minorities
•    Manifest Destiny
•    Subspecies of Bicyclists and Where to "Put" Them
•    Duh Laws
•    Act Up

A few quotes:

How does a citizen obeying the law while traveling on a public road portray a negative image?

Then there’s the unwritten law. It’s based on ridicule, an attitude of superiority, ignorance or disparagement of the written law, and the ability to flee the consequences of antisocial behavior. If it were written it would say:
    Stay out of our way or we will scare the crap out of you, hit you, or maybe even kill you.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
