here, we can do a study. go to google. type in site: (with colon afterward). then follow with the address for the archives <> and the expression you are looking for <"bourgeois liberal"> (put quotes around it for a phrase search)

example: if you want to search for a post yoshie wrote about feminist theory in 1999 type in type in "yoshie furahashi" "feminist theory" 1999.

and i swear to all known deities that people were getting "bourgeois liberal" on the order of at least once a day. you, of course, reserved for me "moronic idiot(e)" and i felt special.

so THERE my dick is waaaaaaaay bigger than everyone else's.

god, i can't believe that not only am i allowing people to use the word dick instead of cockand not having a hissy fit about it, but i just typed the word dick instead of cock too. this list is really going to the dogs.
