I think people are having too much faith in humanity, so I'll pass this on.
Let's put everybody in jail! Personally, I think that might tear the fabric of society, and screw things up further. But as you know, am I being paid the big bucks?

Dear the web, Hilliary ate the last piece of bread

A sociological discussion of stuffwhitepeoplelike. I agree about how rich white folks are centered as the norm and everyone else is the other. I mean, remember those "me and all my pals in Manhattan want to be stay at home moms, so now we're having an opt out revolution" stories in the NY Times? Apparently everyone cares about what one chick and her pals think, because she's pale and got the cash.

A comment on the blog that is interesting. I agree with this. White folks whine about being 'accused' of liking bottled water, sandwiches that may be expensive, but in fact are yummy, and asian fusion restaurants. OMG, we gotta say even more bad stuff about black people because one white guy said LOLZ, white people love tea! That means that black people...ARE LAZY AND EAT FRIED CHICKEN~ HAR HAR HAR. Really, that says a lot about you, but not much about anyone else.
We learn that Katrina survivors from NO are BAD PEOPLE. MS survivors are GOOD PEOPLE because they didn't complain.

Get asthma from dangerous trailers and complain? YOU MUST BE A BAD PERSON.

a funny search term:

who are etsians are they a religious group

People speculate about a missing seattle man.

All opponents can dig up on Obama is that people REALLY LIKE HIM.


Mmm....racism, classism, and more. Here's an informational website about why the whole we should sterilize people is bad.
more stuff southern white people like:

complaining about the government, even if they benefit from rural electrification
doing unpleasant things outside like waking up at 4 am to go fishing.
talking about how they worked five jobs since they were twelve, and nobody ever gave them anything
huge churches
talking a lot about virginity in teens
guns,lots of them

things everybody in the south likes:

babies. lots of them.
trees with flowers on them
food that is a walking diabetes/heart attack waiting to happen

We learn that people think that saying lynching is OK, but apparently saying periodically is sexist.
Stuff Southern White People Like:

living in the middle of nowhere
complaining about taxes
being single issue voters- because you really care if the dogcatcher is prolife.
mudding-driving a truck through mud
wearing hunting camo- that ugly camo with leaves on it. this is sometimes worn in public.
making a big deal about sports
white flight
whining about minorities- whether it's rich ones whining about 'self segregation' or poor folks whining about the 'mexicans' there's a whole lot of whining going on
Elvis
Country music
cotton logo shirts; john deere logo shirts- partially ironic I believe
putting confederate flags on shirts, cars, flags, just to be dicks

I can't think of anything else that southern white people like right now, but I'll put in more as I think of them. I don't have any explanations for these observations, as they are a mystery to me.

hahaha, crazy rush limbaugh. Liberals are to be defeated! They are snakes!*

If science fiction diversifies with the serial numbers filed off, that's enough for me. People hunger for visions of the future, or visions of the past through different eyes. Sure, by ignoring the huge bulk of female readers and the large number of people of color, the traditional sources will wither, but the truth is that there's still a large market for these sorts of stories, even if the hidebound folks don't realize it. You ignore a large and growing market to your detriment, I say.

Maybe I should make a writing blog.
It's nice to see the offensiveness of lynching pointed out on tv. Also, eugene robinson[awesome!] said that basically, I don't care if you're 'no racist', all we can go by is your words and your actions. I totally agree. Don't want people to think you're racist? Well, change your behavior.
Note: really, if they don't allow retaliation claims under racial discrimination laws, what is to keep people from complying at first, but then being so racist that they drive everyone away and then the people can't have any recourse for being fired for complaining?

You know what? It's funnier to make fun of rich white people than poor white people. Poor white people- you're always worried that they'll have shitty health insurance and all their teeth will fall out and then you'll feel really bad for making fun of them. Old white people? they could break their hips and then you'd feel bad. But rich 20-30 something white people? well, woopty do! so you made fun of them on the internet. They can just go and cry in their $10 mojitos or whatever.

So, here's an important lesson of comedy- the more expensive the drinks that a group can cry in are, the more funny they are to make fun of.
Grocery gaps grow in New York City.

..if you allow your young girl to watch anything that the 'pussycat dolls present', *shakes head* you're on your own. so on your own. I remember when anything involving stripper poles would have been on at at least 10 pm, not 8.
Eating disorders are a terrible mental illness. There is treatment and help!

....hair removal is evil.
I have to admit that stuff like this is why I'm a slacker. I'm fairly average if you average everything out, so I'm not sure that killing myself when I don't really have any dreams or goals is appropriate.
It seems that fairy godmother tycoon will become my new obsession. I also plan to lay in bed and write about personality disorders. Other plans include watching the office, reading manga, and putting old junk in a box to take to goodwill.
This girl gives us folks who haven't been working 5 jobs since the age of 12 a bad name.

I hate everybody.

This story is batshit. The aunt confined to an asylum story, and the bit about how girls really don't want to have sex are the highlights. Earth to crazy english lady- most 'sluttiness' is caused by high sex drives.

uh...you suck, miss baking a cake out of rainbows lady.
Lauredhel has two posts about the apology. The first post has a good roundup.

[note: the first one is tigtog]
You know, a woman should be free to choose whether to shove a baby out her vag or not. Really, I'm so glad it's not me shoving a 8 pound human being out of my vagina that you can get it out any way you want to.
A small mosque near Nashville was firebombed by white supremacists. A rebuilding fund has been established- it's "Muslim Society of Memphis 1065 Stratford Memphis TN 38122" ear marked "Columbia Mosque Fund"

Information on the Memphis fund was pulled from page B3 of the Commercial Appeal from the In Brief section, dated Friday February 15th 2008.

Ok, I was listening to To The Point and some guy was talking about how he wants to make pro life a nonpartisian thing, lie 'racial reconciliation'. Look here, dude, racial reconciliation is something you do. Lip service does NOT count.

We learned an important lesson about people who say life is unfair. They are bastards. Uh..people are dead, and injured here. They need more comfort than just life is unfair.

But instead of being a horrible person who sucks, you can donate to help the tornado victims.
What should we as activists do about places like cafepress, in which any asshole can slap up a shirt? We need to go after the assholes, but what should we do about the just a venue defense?

Saturday, February 09, 2008

Ok, I opened this blog window to post about how I hate the fact that people who need less sleep, can tolerate caffeine, and can tolerate huge amounts of stress without getting sick either mentally or physically try to act like they have super *time management* skills. Bullshit. Many people could manage their time all they want, but at a certain point, they are going to need to sleep or at least take a break to avoid causing other people to die...

But then I decided to make fun of people who need their cars cleansed of bad juju
I loved the Persepolis comics. Glad to see this showing up on [some] big screens.
I learned what that weird shit in my soup is! It's fish cake. Well, someone who gets all excited about fried catfish can't really complain.
a chilling story of child sexual abuse.

Thursday, February 07, 2008

I'm watching Celebrity Rehab and I have no idea what is going on. Someone said something disrespectful to Mary Cary, etc. There is probably something good in there about gender, sexuality and sex workers, but uh..yea, whatever.

Rachael S explains why nobody cares if someone calls you a cracker ass cracker on the internet.

People are arguing about a bunch of crap. Personally, as a young woman, I know there is a contingent of my generation that are pretty much "omg, it's super scary to be a feminist! because what if the booooys think we're butch?!"* Those people suck. I like Obama better than Hilliary, but it's not like I'm going to not vote for her if she gets the nomination. Yes, Obama is an acceptable black- he doesn't scare the whities, but it's nice to see someone who is reaching across the aisles. Give em hell Obama!


*you think the booooys would be able to distinguish between a girly girl and a butch girl without asking their political convictions, but hey, I don't get paid the big bucks!

For heaven's sake, I really really wish that we didn't have to hear that stupid "Maybe you don't get dates because it looks like your crotch has a lot of mileage on it" line from that annoying guy from What Not to Wear. Really, if a guy is so uptight that he's not going to date a woman because she's not a virgin[although I bet he's no virgin either!]. why would you even want to attract an asshole like that?

uh...I hate those fake ass studies.

The tornados have passed, but what does this mean for voter turnout in the memphis area?!
But wait! The Memphis City Schools have closed for no reason I can tell! Will this have an effect on the primary?!
Oh yea, and I'm bitching about health care. The $71 I gotta pay for my prescriptions even though I don't even make any money way way outweighs an omg, tax increase. 71/200= a huge fucking percentage of my monthly wage?!

also, I don't get why judging random people is america's favorite pastime. Really, not all mental illnesses have the same level of severity! Now, I get bad walking depression[I can do things, but boy, it sucks to be me] and the things I can achieve[less than most people- I can go to school and keep a job if I don't go overboard on the hours] are more than what a person who can't even get out of bed most days can do. It's nice that I can drag myself to class, but that doesn't give me an all judgment pass to go whale on folks. Can't we stop picking on the disabled, and start picking on fun feminists instead?
Dear the entire internet, my values are much better than the values of other people. I've got middle class values such as future orientation- "what are you going to use that extra $3 out of your check for when you're dead?" pragmatism- "if kids don't eat, they don't learn. and if they don't learn, they end up stealing your shit", and a social contract orientation- "if we don't get some help for those mentally ill people, they'll freeze to death!"

oh,yea, and I voted for Obama.

Monday, February 04, 2008

Hehehe, I love this site. why don't you vote for Obama,ok?

Here's a quiz question:

What's the plot line of diner dash?

a)dining and dashing
b)assholes are why we don't have nice things
c)flo saves resturants/zoos/trains/the world by serving dinner
d)lolz,casualnerds.
OMG! is it for real?

I love time management games despite the over girliness. It's fun to play chocoliter with the RPG aspects, but I don't want to be stuck in a puzzler. I'd also play a more masculine time management game- I wouldn't be turned off by say Bob's Garage. I like the twitch aspect of time management games- I can't play many games because the 3d makes me dizzy so I have to be satisfied elsewhere. Of course, if it has a strategy component, I like it more.
