Shit that Pissed me off – 8/21

Josh Duggar Wasn’t Cured by God

As a friend of mine pointed out online, Duggar’s apology about being “addicted” to online porn and looking for adulterous affairs was pretty good.  He took full responsibility and admitted he was a hypocrite.  So good for him.

I mean, he’s still an adulterer and a hypocrite but at least he realizes it.

But we all remember that he had some issues with sexuality in his youth as well, right?  And his ultra-religious parents used some sort of faith-based counseling to “fix” him, right?  It seems like he wasn’t fixed, doesn’t it?

I'm going to pray away your healthy sexual appetite!

But what if he was never broken?  I’m not talking about sexually assaulting his little sisters.  That’s fucked up.

But what I’m asking is this: if he didn’t live in a household where sexual repression is the norm, is it possible he wouldn’t be so sexually confused right now?  Is it possible he would have gotten involved with a woman who was interested in an open relationship so he could have had extra-marital sex in a supportive environment?

What will happen in the wake of this scandal?  No doubt Duggar will get more religious counseling aimed at “curing” him of having a sexual appetite that is deemed improper.  And it won’t work.

Because Josh Duggar likes sex.  And he lives in a community where that is not OK.

Jeb Bush Criticizes Intellectual Arrogance in Climate Change Debate

Bush is looking to raise money so he can be the third member of his family to be President.  To do so, he has to pander to the extreme right wing of his own party and that means his personal opinion on global Climate Change is irrelevant.

The evidence shows that our climate is changing so the right is now simply suggesting that it may or may not be caused by human beings.  Who knows? Aside from almost all of the scientists studying the phenomena.  Most of them seem pretty certain.

I'm going to be working in hostile environments and paying off student loans until I'm 50 just so people can call me "intellectually arrogant."

I’m going to be working in hostile environments and paying off student loans until I’m 50 just so people can call me “intellectually arrogant.”

Anyway, Bush goes so far as to say believing the scientific community amounts to intellectual arrogance.

It’s all so cynical because Bush is saying these things to raise money.  Solving a potential global crisis doesn’t matter to him or the people giving him money.  They genuinely don’t give a fuck if climate change is caused by humans or not.

Because no matter what is causing it, they don’t want to do anything about it.
