It Was My Privilege

I want to talk to you all about something that has been on my mind lately, well now its kinda burned into my mind. The image that is burned into my mind is not a good one. The issue is Feminism (I checked my privilege and capitalized it)
I don’t have a problem with women so don’t mistake this whole post for misogyny, I’m all for women having equal rights to men in every area. Wait why the fuck am I apologizing for myself. My mistake, silly me…

I was on Facebook lately and a friend of a friend of mine posted an article in from a well-known US news source, it was about women and their rights. I read it and didn’t agree with everything that was said in it. I especially don’t like the stance that every man is a rapist, so I commented on it. I was then accosted by the girl who posted it. Obviously a feminist. Before I get into anything (I’m not talking specifically about the individual involved) there is a point when feminism becomes radical and then there’s the sad point where feminism becomes misandry. These specific man hating feminists and some of the things they say and promote are completely ridiculous and they make feminists and feminism in general look like a joke, which is the exact opposite of what they want. These ‘feminists’ are why you ladies can’t have nice things. There’s a point when it just becomes war on the danglers in general and you don’t want equal rights but to take away the rights of men.

I think that a woman shouldn’t think every man is a potential rapist, don’t get me wrong I’m a fan of putting the fear of god in people to warn them of potential danger but it gets ridiculous at the point where all men are demonized for the actions of a few animals. The other thing I can’t stand is the cherry picking, its pathetic. You already have a point, no need to dress it up. Then the other thing is being told I’m privileged. Yes I’m white and male and I know that in years gone by this carried privileges but now days this is much less true and where I’m from we’re had multiculturalism and tolerance hammered into us while we were still to young to see color and creed. Where I’m from we’re united in our shitty environment and shitty situation as I said when you’re at the bottom rung of the ladder everyone is on equal footing. Telling me I’m privileged in any way because of the color of my skin or my sex makes me laugh. I invite you to come see where I live, you’ll see my point. We’re all equal in this shit hole.

Another thing is a feminist telling me how she has no rights or how she’s being oppressed… posting her opinions freely on social media, from her cell phone that she owns and paid for with her own money… need I go on?
Sure I recognize that women aren’t completely equal but there are women having their genitals mutilated in Africa, and women who aren’t allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, who can’t go out without the company of a man, women who are really oppressed, the women who jumped under the kings carriage for their rights were oppressed. So sorry you’re not top of the list. right now. Lets worry about the women who have been killed for dishonoring their families or that poor little girl in the news. That’s oppression and you don’t know what the fuck that is. And by god I hope you never do…

The worst thing is that even when you agree with a lot of their points they fuck it up for themselves by being rude or sometimes just plain crazy and for a lot of people it was shocking at first but now its hilarious to the point where feminists in general became massive targets for trolls, so yeah if you sit in your feminism 101 class and look to your left, then look to your right, one of those two women are likely to make you and your sisters look like a joke. You know what warms me the most, when a man and a woman just work together and not against each-other. I find with many feminists the target is the man and not the inequality and I can’t understand why they can’t be fucking polite. When I converse with someone I’m always civil but when you’re being shitty and rude because I disagree with some facets of your belief system, (You know the conspiracy to keep all women down?) That’s when I start being an asshole and you get a little wake up call. If you could talk to me, I may even be able to see your point of view. But no, there’s no moderation with them. I mean shit we’re not the enemy. Not all of us.

I don’t have a problem with the basic ideals of feminism but what I have a problem with is the feminists I’ve described here.
It has been my privilege.

Random Acts Of Bullshit.

Yeah, Reddit again. I realize I complain about Reddit a lot. Maybe even too much but Random acts of Reddit bothers me not because I’m a grouchy bastard who doesn’t believe in the milk of human kindness but because these ‘random acts’ do not occur enough to constitute and entire sub-reddit.
If by chance they really do occur with such frequency they would no longer be random now, would they?
Its called Random Acts of Reddit, based off random acts of kindness, I don’t know if it’s just me but displaying your random acts of kindness for karma kinda takes the whole random and kindness parts away. Why not rename it ‘douche bags doing things for karma’ or better yet why bother naming it at all that last sentence describes a good 75% of Reddit.

Then my next gripe is look who I ran into at X, which directly translates to look who I followed around a Target for half an hour before mustering the courage to stutter a hello. You didn’t ‘run into’ that celebrity as much as you stalked them, also there’s the fact that I don’t give a damn about you or that celebrity. Every post with that title causes me to roll my eyes and scroll straight past it. The other thing that gets me is when people post these supposedly natural, random pictures that are obviously staged but the idiots lap it up like milk. It’d be cute and idealistic if these people weren’t idiots. Circle jerk was once funny because it mocked stuff like this but the rest of the hive-mind don’t seem to see the humor in it. If people aren’t posting this sort of crap for karma then it is attention, probably coupled with a distinct lack of social skills and a need increase one’s own self-worth by helping another.

It doesn’t sound like such a bad thing because at the end of the day it is helping people in some way or another. I wonder what kind of karma I could get if I brought heroin for a junkie and posted it there…
I guess my point is that posting this stuff on Reddit takes away everything that made it good but then again these people are doing this for attention so I don’t know why I’m even trying to make something good out of this attention seeking bullshit. Finally Redditors need to stop starting submission with ‘So..’ its boring and unimaginative.

So once again, screw Reddit and screw most Redditors…

Season Unending.

Its no secret that the last few months have been bad, bad doesn’t even really begin to describe just how shitty they have been. I haven’t posted so much because to be honest I just haven’t had it in me. I’ve had nothing to post about good or bad. It seems like the last eight months have been the worst of my life, usually that one optimist would pop up and tell me how it couldn’t get any worse but I’m pretty sure I can think of a few ways.

We’ve had quite a bit of snow lately which, like rain, is always nice because it keeps idiots off the streets and allows me to take a walk undisturbed. I’ve needed the walks lately because I’ve been on a really short fuse. I’ve made an effort to be more social because I’ve been so bored its ridiculous. Ended up going out drinking because what eases the pain of talking to idiots like alcohol. Speaking of alcohol, this nectar of the gods should be sampled by all at one point in their existence. Thinking about it I’m kinda saddened that all the Jack Daniels lovers of old died without ever trying this. It saddens me, no really.

So nothing new really, life is shit and everything is a crap shoot. I will be updating this soon because I have something I need to vent about…
