Shit that Pissed me off – 2/6

A Totally Insane Video By a Gamergater

Brianna Wu is a frequent target of Gamergate supporters because she, rightly, thinks they are idiots. They have countered with death threats because that’s proven to be the most effective way to fight for ethics in game journalism.

This kook had an accident because he was driving too fast in slippery conditions.  Somehow, he seems to think that Wu had something to do with the fact that he can’t drive and has decided that she tried to kill him.

That's right - all ice storms are plots to kill members of Gamergate

Because he seems like a really important guy.  The kind of guy who it would be important to kill by magically summoning up an ice storm and making him forget how to drive.

Or maybe Wu was his driving instructor and she did a really shitty job.

This video is made by a crazy person and the only thing that bothers me more than the crazy person is the ones that take him seriously.

Oklahoma Works to Make Same-Sex Marriage Harder

They lost in the courts so now some legislators are trying to make same-sex marriage harder by preventing judges from signing marriage certificates.  Instead, Representative Todd Russ wants to ensure that only priests or “ecclesiastical dignitaries” will be able to sign marriage certificates.

In case you were wondering if “ecclesiastical” could refer to anyone who wasn’t a Christian, it can’t.

This bill, most likely, has no chance of becoming law so it isn’t really worth a lot of bile.

And yet we see the ugliness in the desire to prevent gay people from entering into a legally binding marriage.  Not only would this bill prevent homosexuals from being married unless they could find a supportive Christian minister, it would prevent Muslims, Jews, atheists and every other group from legal marriage.

Before I say the homily, I just wanted to welcome all the same-sex, atheist, Jewish and Hindu couples who have suddenly converted to Catholicism.

He’s willing to discriminate against everyone to make sure gays can’t get married.

But don’t call him a homophobe because that’s offensive.

The President Lays a SICK BURN on Congressional Republicans

Listen up Congress.

I know that you guys are all supposed to hate each other and I confess I think the Tea Party Republicans are kind of loony.

But here’s the thing, you could at least pay the office of the Presidency a bit of fucking respect.  Someday one of your people will hold that office again.  Do you really want the Democrats to act like a bunch of petulant school children when your guy (I’m just assuming it’ll be a guy) says he’s done running for office?

No lie - I typed "petulant school children" into an image search and this was one of the hits.

No lie – I typed “petulant school children” into an image search and this was one of the images that showed up.

If you can’t learn how to sit on your fucking hands for the fucking State of the Union address, you shouldn’t have applied for the fucking job.

Grow the fuck up.

If you didn’t miss it, that was pretty much what Obama said to you when he slammed the door on you hard.  So quit whining about what he did because you fucking deserved it.

Man do you assholes make me want to say “fuck” a lot!

Thanks to Michelle Duggar, Fayetteville Arkansas is That Much Less Safe for the GLBT Community

Duggar, who thinks her rights to free speech are being infringed every time someone disagrees with her, characterized transgender women as “males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls.”

Seems like she was speaking freely right there.

And her fear mongering worked as Fayetteville voters overturned an ordinance meant to protect those dudes with past child predator convictions who, in fact, don’t have any convictions for being child predators.

This is Susan Smith.  She murdered her children.  Since she is not a convicted predator, I presume Michelle Duggar would not have an issue if Smith shared a bathroom with her daughters.

Fuck you transgender people!  Michelle Duggar is uncomfortable with the idea that one of you might be peeing in the stall next to her so she made up some shit about you being a pedophile.

And it worked.

Let’s be fair, though.  She didn’t make that shit up. Someone else did.  She just affixed her name to it because, apparently, she agreed.

Man, I hope one of her kids is gay or transgender.  She needs to hate someone close to her so she can truly understand what kind of person she is.

Religious Conservatives Believe in Free Speech as Long as They are Doing the Speaking

In this case, the Duggars are getting a lot of flack for saying bigoted stuff because the bible says that kind of speech is OK.  Problem is, some folks don’t agree and have started a petition to get their show taken off the air.

So what’s the big deal you ask?  By petitioning TLC (that show is on The Learning Channel?  Really?) to cancel the show, they are attacking the Duggar’s right to free speech!

Duggar Family

I got this picture off of their family blog where they are regularly prevented from exercising their right to free speech.

 

I can’t believe we have to go over this again but NO WE ARE NOT!  Having the right to free speech is not the same thing as consequence free speech.  When you say thing that pisses people off, they get to say things back.

It amazes me that conservative Christians claim they are being “silenced” when all that is happening is people are calling them on their bullshit.

Anti Gay Rights Rally in Houston Had T-Shirts!

That’s right, they had shirts that read “we reserve the right to refuse services to homosexuals.”

I mean, good for them.  They have completely ensured that everyone who sees them will know that they would happily torpedo their best interests as business owners because they are bigoted assholes.

Some the people are kids, of course, so they will only be able to refuse service to homosexuals at lemonade stands.  Or when they are going around the neighborhood offering to mow lawns, they’ll just skip the houses with rainbow flags hanging in front.

It’s like kryptonite for homophobic people!

Their attitude amazes me because I can’t understand why anyone would be proud to refuse services to homosexuals.  I don’t have the bible memorized but I’d sure like someone to show me where Jesus told everyone that refusing to sell someone cupcakes makes you closer to god.

Stay classy, people who really fucking hate the fact that homosexuals aren’t going to stay in the closet.  The more T-shirts you print, the more everyone else will see you for what you are and realize they can be better people than you.

Rich Woman is Upset that Poor Children Might Be Trick-or-Treating in her Neighborhood

This letter to Dear Prudence has to be a joke, right?  I mean there probably are people who are this awful but most of them wouldn’t say it out loud, right?

Sadly, I expect this lady is real and she resents “poor” people coming to her house for the good candy.  And by “poor,” I expect she means middle class suburban folks and not a bunch of unwashed inner city kids who aren’t worthy to sell her kids a hamburger at McDonald’s.

Her good candy is for the rich little boys and girls!  Why is that so hard for the other 99% to understand?  If they get full-sized Kit-Kat bars on Halloween instead of the fun size that they deserve, they will start expecting rich people to provide them everything!  Isn’t it enough that they are job providers?

Candy

Get the fun sized candy bars, Howard! The poor kids are coming!

Holy shit, lady.  If you have to hand out an extra hundred candy bars, are you suddenly going to miss a Porsche payment?  Will your underprivileged children be unable to join you in Rome for Christmas?  If you have such a problem giving to people who make less than you, just turn off your light so the kids from the rich families that aren’t as rich as yours don’t come to your house either.

I wish this lady had included her home address so everyone could go to her house this Halloween.  We should all give her a fucking candy bar.  Only the fun size though.  We can’t afford the good stuff.
