Yeah, I Suck

20 05 2010

Meh.

I haven’t been posting lately. Why? Because I’m depressed as hell and I’m a bitter little bitch.

I don’t want to post about how I’m so broke I have to skip a bill or two every month to buy groceries or about how I can’t seem to get even a shitty part time minimum wage job and I’ll never get to go to school and woe is me I hate my life, blah blah fucking blah.

I also haven’t been reading many of you because, like I said, I’m a fucking bitter bitch and I don’t want to hear about how you’re graduating college or got a sweet new job or how you’re going on an expensive vacation with your perfect spouse or spending the weekend at the spa, or can’t decide whether you want to become a lawyer or a doctor.

So,

until I have something other than negativity* to spread around, I’ll probably be staying pretty quiet.

I’ll be back.

*Obviously this blog is built on negativity, but I mean negativity that isn’t even entertaining.





Throat Punch Thursday

6 05 2010

[originated by I Run with Scissors]

I know I haven’t been blogging much lately. I’ve been sucked into other parts of the internetz. But, when I glanced up from my computer last night and caught a glimpse of the news, I knew I had to take time for Throat Punch Thursday today.

What did I see on my local news program? This:

[These morons were protesting the repeal of the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy, which is a whooole other blog post in these parts.]

Of course I’ve seen this before, (not that it helps me dry heave any less each time) but what really caught my attention is that the news anchor kept referring to these people as “Anti Gay Activists”.

Seriously?

Seriously?

Can you imagine the uproar if this this were a group claiming to be, say, “Anti Hispanic Activists”…..or “Anti Woman Activists” or even, say, “Anti Intersex Activists” (yep, that’s the new term for hermaphrodite).

Oh, but right, it’s acceptable in this case because God is involved. They have proof. It’s right in their Bible. That they got from church. Which is supposed to be separate from the fucking state, which means it has no place in the support or protest of any legislative matter. Buuut, I’m getting off track.

Let’s just say, for argument’s sake, that there is a God. And for whatever reason, he wants us to spend our time parading around like jackasses, holding up hate-promoting signage. Why not pick some other things from his book? I mean, there are plenty of other messages of hate to be plucked from the Bible, why do those attention whore gays get all the pretty signs?

Never fear, Le Meh is here, for all of your misguided, self serving, hand selected, bible based protest sign needs!

Leviticus 19:27: “You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard.”


Leviticus 11:8, discussing pigs: “You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.”

A two-fer!

Leviticus 19:28:  “You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord.

Leviticus 19:19: “You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together.

Leviticus 11:10: “But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you.”

Be sure to bust this one out at your little princess’s The Little Mermaid sleepover.  Hey, God hates who he hates. I’m just the messenger.

Because it’s a whole lot easier to pick something out of your holy book that you can despise when it doesn’t apply to you. I mean, let’s face it,  it’s way more convenient to pick a day every couple of years to parade around with a gay bashing sign than it is to give up eating pork or wearing fabric blends.

And if society lets you get away with claiming to be an “activist”, well, then it’s totally okay.

Right?

No.

THROAT PUNCH!

I will from now on be referring to myself as an Anti Bible Thumping Ignorant Redneck Fuck Activist. I will accept AB TIRF Activist for short.

Thankyouverymuch.
