Lyrical example: “rape a pregnant bitch and call it a threesome.”
This is why I’m glad I don’t watch award shows. :|
Lemme link you to an article detailing things a little more. [click]
Wow. I was just thinking, “I don’t think I’ve had enough RAGE in my life this morning.” The article just makes it worse. In the man’s own defense, he says, “I’m not homophobic. I just think ‘faggot’ hits and hurts people. It hits. And ‘gay’ just means you’re stupid. I don’t know, we don’t think about it, we’re just kids. We don’t think about that shit.”
So first of all he’s exposed his entire creative process—offending people, gee how deep and artistic—and second of all he has apparently decided that “gay” is not at all a valid way of expressing homosexuality, but it’s just a flat-out insult. Oh, he’s just a kid. He doesn’t think about that shit. I guess that removes him from all responsibility.
And as for the rapist lyrics in question—it’s been said that the rest of the song is so outlandishly violent that the lyrics can’t actually be taken seriously. Allow me to say that anyone who makes that argument has clearly had their brain replaced with bloody diarrhea, and I urgently advise them to seek medical attention as soon as possible. This man is a public figure. His music is out there. Everything he says can have an impact on someone else, whether or not he realizes it; assuming people will successfully draw the line between the probable and the improbable, the rational and the irrational, is to ignore the hundreds of years of proof of the yawning idiocy of humankind in general.
Fuck this guy. He’s twenty years old. He’s a grown-ass adult. He is responsible for each and every thing coming out of his mouth, just like I am. I don’t usually watch award shows anyway (with the exception of the VGAs), but this has just… completely sapped any faith I had left in the stinking shithole that MTV has become.
So bisexuality covers trans people now? Then what the fuck is pansexuality?
In my view, “pansexuality” is for people who think being bisexual is too mainstream. Bisexuality just means you have a like of both genders. It has always “covered trans people” because it’s not like they don’t have a gender or anything. Gender is what’s between your ears, not what’s between your legs.
~*~*~*~I’M PANSEXUAL I LIKE PEOPLE FOR THEIR MINDS NOT GENDER~*~*~*~ Yeah, you and most of the goddamn bisexuals on this planet.
But why the hell does all of this even matter? Why can’t people just be people and like whoever they goddamn please?
MISTER CHOTPOT. Allow me to first say that I genuinely enjoy your blog. I don’t officially follow you because you update too fast for me to keep up, but I do creep it every now and then. I just wanted to say, though, that your angry dismissal of pansexuality kind of hurt my feelings. I know it’s not your job to make everyone on the internet happy or anything. If I don’t like your blog, I can stop creeping it. It just bothered me.
I don’t say that I’m pansexual because I’m some highschooler looking for attention. It’s something I actually can’t discuss with my parents or coworkers at this time in my life.
I draw the distinction between bisexuality and pansexuality for personal reasons. I am 23 years old. I have never had a significant other, have never been kissed, and am generally uncomfortable with physical contact. I am not drawn to other people because of physical reasons because I’d prefer not to be touched, if possible. In a hypothetical relationship, I suppose this would hold off until I have established a level of comfort with that individual. I guess all couples kind of go through that, though, don’t they? I don’t know for sure, but it definitely would be purely a mental connection before it’d be anything else.
I have actually described my view of a fluid sexuality to my friends over the years, never having a word for it. And then, when I finally did, apparently it’s uncool to use it? I live in the dreaded Bible Belt, though, so I’m used to keeping this sort of thing to myself.
This is kind of… a bad first reblog for me to do of you. Unless I have reblogged you before and then forgotten about it, which sort of sounds like something I would do. I promise, followers (all… uh, six of you), chot is a pretty cool dude (check out his Gamzee cosplays). And regardless of your response, I fully intend to keep creeping your blog. I don’t expect to change your mind on pansexuality in general. I’m perfectly content to agree to disagree, if you like!
I just wanted to let you know that, even though some people DO, not everyone who identifies as pansexual does so because they’re hipsters being hip. Sometimes it’s a personal decision.
I used to investigate child abuse and neglect. I can tell you how to stop the vast majority of abortion in the world.
First, make knowledge and access to contraception widely available. Start teaching kids before they hit puberty. Teach them about domestic violence and coercion, and teach them not to coerce and rape. Create a strong, loving community where women and girls feel safe and supported in times of need. Because guess what? They aren’t. You know what happens to babies born under such circumstances? They get hurt, unnecessarily. They get sick, unnecessarily. They get removed from parents who love them but who are unprepared for the burden of a child. Resources? Honey, we try. There aren’t enough resources anywhere. There are waiting lists, and promises, and maybes. If the government itself can’t hook people up, what makes you think an impoverished single mom can handle it?
Abolish poverty. Do you have any idea how much childcare costs? Daycare can cost as much or more than monthly rent. They may be inadequately staffed. Getting a private nanny is a nice idea, but they don’t come cheap either. Relatives? Do they own a car? Does the bus run at the right times? Do they have jobs of their own they need to work just to keep the lights on? Are they going to stick around until you get off you convenience store shift at 4 AM? Do they have criminal histories that will make them unsuitable as caregivers when CPS pokes around? You gonna pay for that? Who’s going to pay for that?
End rape. I know your type errs on the side of blaming the woman, but I’ve seen little girls who’ve barely gotten their periods pregnant because somebody thought raping preteens was an awesome idea. You want to put a child through that? Or someone with a mental or physical inability for whom pregnancy would be frightening, painful or even life-threatening?
I’ve seen nonverbal kids who had their feet sliced up by caregivers for no fucking reason at all, you think sexual abuse doesn’t happen either?
You say there’s lots of couples who want to adopt. Kiddo, what they want to adopt are healthy white babies, preferably untainted by the wombs and genetics of women with alcohol or drug dependencies. I’ve seen the kids they don’t want, who almost no one wants. You people focus only on the happy pink babies, the gigglers, the ones who grow and grow with no trouble. Those are not the kids who linger in foster care. Those are certainly not the older kids and teenagers who age out of foster care and then are thrown out in the streets, usually with an array of medical and mental health issues. Are they too old to count?
And yeah, I’ve seen the babies, little hand-sized things barely clinging to life. There’s no glory, no wonder there. There is no wonder in a pregnant woman with five dollars to her name, so deep in depression you wonder if she’ll be alive in a week. Therapy costs money. Medicine costs money. Food, clothes, electricity cost money. Government assistance is a pittance; poverty drives women and girls into situations where they are forced to rely on people who abuse them to survive. (I’ve been up in more hospitals than I can count.)
>In each and every dark pit of desperation, I have never seen a pro-lifer. I ain’t never seen them babysitting, scrubbing floors, bringing over goods, handing mom $50 bucks a month or driving her to the pediatrician. I ain’t never seen them sitting up for hours with an autistic child who screams and rages so his mother can get some sleep while she rests up from working 14-hour days. I don’t see them fixing leaks in rundown houses or playing with a kid while the police prepare to interview her about her sexual abuse. They’re not paying for the funerals of babies and children who died after birth, when they truly do become independent organisms. And the crazy thing is they think they’ve already done their job, because the child was born!
Aphids give birth, girl. It’s no miracle. You want to speak for the weak? Get off your high horse and get your hands dirty helping the poor, the isolated, the ill and mentally ill women and mothers and their children who already breathe the dirty air. You are doing nothing, absolutely nothing, for children. You don’t have a flea’s comprehension of injustice. You are not doing shit for life until you get in there and fight that darkness. Until you understand that abortion is salvation in a world like ours. Does that sound too hard? Do you really think suffering post-birth is more permissible, less worthy of outrage?
“Pro-life” is simply a philosophy in which the only life worth saving is the one that can be saved by punishing a woman.”
The weather might be the subject people care most about on a daily basis. There is a very successful private TV channel dedicated to it, 24 hours a day, as well as any number of phone and PC apps. Americans need not be forced to turn over part of their earnings to support weather reporting.
This right here is the key to the conservative thought process. Americans need not be forced to turn over part of their earnings to the government, if they want to survive then they should turn over part of their earnings to private industries like cable companies! Poor people who can’t afford cable tv or internet deserve to die from natural disasters, that is all this whole fucking article is saying.
The National Weather Service (same as many other government entities) does not exist to serve people who can afford to find out about natural disasters from The Weather Channel and the 24 news machine, it exists to serve those who cannot.
