I heartily recommend everyone read this

While it does miss some points, it's true, and should be bloody frightening to any male that reads it. There will be those that call it "overly dramatic", but sadly, these are not one-off occasions, nor something you should dismiss as "femnazi lecturing" To greater or lesser extents, this is what life is like for us.

We all deal with it in different ways. Some learn to take the lemon and eat it. Some keep their heads down. Some take the good and bad, and make a nice niche somewhere in the middle. Some get furious and go off in irrational directions. But yeah, this is it. And it does a rather good job of detailing what a lot of these theses don't - rather than going on a rant about GOD MEN SUCK it also explains what we think and how something someone else considers innocent could be massively misconstrued.

"what does he want, what is he suggesting, if I consent to accepting this what else is he going to try to talk me into or want in return?" Almost every social interaction has that shit banging at the back of it to some degree. Which is frankly fucking sad that we've been programmed by society and experience to expect that we will be considered some sort of obscenely sexualised object. We've been turned into waspish paranoid fuckers - unfortunately with good reason.

Sometimes I think stupid free in it just to be a pack of arseholes.

I don't really care how scared you are of [spiders]. If you were deathly afraid of Jewish people, would you be fine with killing them?

Meh, it's something I agree with. If the phrase "Jewish people" is too hot trigger, then replace it with puppies. Or kittens. It comes down to the same thing - are you fine with taking a life just because you dislike it? The only difference is how pretty you find them. Evidently I'm a tree hugging hippie for this pov.

No, I don't go around sobbing for the dead spiders. But come on. The human race does not live in a vacuum. We live in a biosphere with other animals. Shove over and make some goddamn room you self-indulgent twats.

I see a lot of sadly similar crap all about the place. A good example would be some reactions I get when making hammocks for the rats. But they're rats! Why do that? You're mad! these are a few I've gotten.

So? They're living, breathing beings. And as anyone who has rats, or has seen them with a hammock can tell you - they fucking love them. They jump on them, burrow in them, chew peep holes and make faces at each other, curl about and generally enjoy the hell out of them. So what's so odd about making some for them? Should they not have any comforts or enjoyments whatsoever? why the hell not? Is it because I'm expending effort? It's mine to spend, after all. Feeding the ducks in the park is a fine and dandy activity, but making do without the toilet light on for a bit because the switch is wired into the exhaust fan and there's an occupied bird nest in the eaves over it makes you peculiar. W.T.F.

It's just as easy to shoo a bug out the door or ignore it as it is to crush it. Same with any other creature. Why make killing something your default action?

The human race could do with a little less "stepping on ants" mentality methinks.


(And why yes, I do eat meat! But when it comes down to it, humans are omnivores. Reality vs absent cruelty)

I was watching Pleasantville and thinking how damned sad it was that this movie would be completely fucked over by the US today. Pity, because it needs a short sharp dose of this film.

Then I started thinking what would happen if good ol' Captain Jack was there. And I remembered the tree scene. Then figured the entire town would probably have exploded after the first night....

Is it a good sign or a bad sign when you're working on a prize piece of fic that is rapidly becoming your baby and you start thinking "oh schwee" because you're not only slotting it in a lovely manner in canon created before the time period it's set in, you're working in tiny subtle elements that also work beautifully to foreshadow future canon?

Did that even make sense? O.o

We would like to know who really believes in gay rights on LiveJournal. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights, then repost this and title the post as "Gay Rights". If you don't believe in gay rights, then just ignore this. Thanks.


Eh, I'm of two minds of this....

I don't believe in special rights for gays. I don't believe in special rights for asians, or for women, or for blacks, or for anyone who shouldn't fucking need them. I loathe that whole affirmative action horseshit. It smacks of "you're not good enough to play with the white males, so here's a handicap for you" but I do believe in rights applicable to EVERYONE. The right to be who you are, love and be loved by whom you want, and to make your family of those you choose to spend your life with. Stop fucking around by "making concessions" and man up to an even playing field, you bastards.

Every so often some fucktard comes up with shit like this.

You know what? Screw them. I'm fucking sick of this lamentable habit of late of pandering to lazy idiocy. If you're not capable of grasping the fucking fundamentals of your own language, then I say we deport them to the Arctic, where they can make out with penguins and produce some bizarre racial mutation that will amuse the rest of us.

Yes, yes, I know. There are dyslexics, and there are people with genuine learning disabilities. But you know what? This stupid bloody society is so fucking intent on finding instant snap answers for three second attention spans that too many sheer fucking lazy gits that whine "it's too haaaard" are being pandered to and told "there there, it's ok, you don't have to do the nasty spelling."

And it's fucking up the rest of us.

Shut the FUCK up and LEARN THE FUCKING FUNDAMENTALS. It's worked fine for everyone else, you are not a pretty princess who shouldn't step in the mud, you are not a precious rose who must be tended, you're a WHINY PIECE OF SHIT WHO NEEDS TO SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP.

What's next? 1+1=2 is too hard to grasp? we'll start accepting something that's approximating the right answer just to make the widdle kiddies feel good.

Fuck your self esteem. If you're shit, you're fucking shit. It's life's little way of telling you to pull your thumb out of your arse and actually put a little effort into things. Survival of the fittest. Except now we're barelling headfirst into reverse darwinism. It's too hard? Well just lower the bar until the lazy arsetards can waddle over it.

Christ on a cracker, this shit is rife throughout this bubblewrap society of ours. Don't use red markers! They'll scar the kiddies! OMG! I stuck hot coffee on my crotch and burned myself, it couldn't possibly be my own fault! I'm a fat bastard because I eat shit all the time and never actually burn any of it off! I'm gonna SUE MCDONALDS!

We are breeding fat, *lazy* whales that do nothing but drag on those of us who, you know, actually like *doing* something with our lives. Which, from the point of view of the cannibalistic tribes is fucking party time, but from a species and a personal point of view is a fucking trainwreck.

We're past the fucking chlorine stage in the gene pool now. There's too many three year old mentalities pissing in it.
