Whoo, four hours of sleep. I was up until after one, mostly because I thought maybe, just maybe, [livejournal.com profile] lilenth could be reasoned with. Nope! I saw I had another comment from her this morning, but deleted it without reading. I have more important shit to do than talk in circles because some dipshit has communication/comprehension problems and is too arrogant and obtuse to realise/admit they're wrong. Some people are just persecuted by the masses, u guiz
(Though like I told Kelly, I was having fun bonding with her and [livejournal.com profile] kiptripsyc over the massive fail we were collectively witnessing. It's terribly frustrating to spell a notion out to the exact letter and watch someone repeatedly Not Get It, but it was also hilarious. <3 you guys)

Emmy's watching Wonderpets for the first time in...weeks, at least. I was thinking she didn't like them anymore, which would have truly been sad--they have awesome songs, okay. It's also not terribly hot today, same yesterday, so I'm thinking tomorrow it'll probably be a billion degrees with a hundred and forty seven percent humidity. Having to be at work an extra half-hour because of our new mandatory unpaid meal breaks sucks, though today I started listening to It, and the huge huge long almost teal deer intros to each of the main characters passed most of the time. I was really pissed for about two hours because I had to move to someone else's station so someone else could use mine, as clients were visiting, and the one I had to sit at had an entirely different keyboard, which I loathed. The screen was also lower, which meant I had to crane my neck all around, and my neck and back really started to hurt after like ten minutes. And, of course, it took me a week and a half to log into the fucking system, and because we only have that half-hour break, the time it took for the system to accept my passwords and such counted against my productivity. Argh.

I'm still so far behind on reading...I've skimmed most of the stuff I've seen posted, but I haven't had time (even before my exercise in futility last night) to read thoroughly and comment yet, so I'll save it for when I can give something other than "I RED DIS". I've written a few things, but they're not ready to be posted yet. I'd really like to get this one piece I started months ago finished, but it seems like every time I open it, the characters involved go "BRB READING WAR AND PEACE. IN BRAILLE~" or something. TRUST ME YOU GUYS, YOU WANT TO FINISH THIS SCENE. (Of course, they have no trouble whatsoever going through it in my head while I'm a work and can't write anything down, jerks)

Here are some other thoughts:

~ ...the Wonderpets are putting oil on a dinosaur.
~ Mmm, cashews
~ Quizno's > Subway. Not in nutrition/weight loss capabilities, but definitely in taste.
~ I was going to buy moar tea vodka, but then I didn't. THIS WEEKEND, THOUGH
~ YES DUSTIN, I KNOW YOU WANT THE FLIPPING RIVER PICTURES
~ No more bird sightings in the house (SO FAR THIS WEEK). I figure two in twenty minutes is about the limit I can deal with for another five years. Yes, yes, at least they weren't bats...
~ I tried to clip Welly's claws last night, but some of them are like...splintering? Peeling? Idk :\ She didn't seem like they were bothering her, but I don't speak cat.
~ I almost seriously want to get a bb gun for the guys across the street that come rolling up with the bass in their speakers rattling my monitor on my desk. REALLY, YOU GUYS??
~ AND SEMAGIC ISN'T WORKING FOR POSTING arrr I hate using the "post entry" box.

Imma go put on a pizza for me and Emmy's dinner--last night I forgot to eat dinner and have only eaten a small frozen meal (turkey/cornbread stuffing/apples), so...idc, I'm eating pizza. And, um, broccoli. Yes.

I want to know who the fuck it was that decided queer people are sex-crazed idiots who want only to have sex with person after person, and in some cases including children, so that just about every queer person in the world can line up and PUNCH THEM IN THE FUCKING FACE

I seriously want to know where this line of thinking came from. I'm tired of hearing about how gays want ONLY sex from people of their desired genders, that bisexuals cannot be faithful to one partner because WELL THEY'RE BI SO THEY OBVOUSLY ~WANT~ SOMEONE OF THE OPPOSITE SEX THAN THEIR CURRENT PARTNER. The other day on the radio, Beth the news girl was commenting on Chely Wright's recent outing, and one of the DJs did a Brad Paisley voice (Chely and Brad dated years ago), going, "You mean all that time we were going out you were DIDDLING other girls?!" (and the other DJ chimed in with, "and you didn't even let me watch?!") BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY she COULDN'T be in a monogamous relationship because she's attracted to others--it's IMPOSSIBLE for her to have been faithful to her boyfriend because she's gay. She doesn't have a brain or heart, only a sex drive, and thus MUST have been fucking around with other girls while dating Brad. (Let's turn it around, shall we? EVERY heterosexual man that has a girlfriend is DIDDLING OTHER GIRLS while with her, because he's attracted to females and can't stop himself! THIS IS SURELY TRUTH.)

IT'S NOT JUST A FUCKING JOKE, YOU FUCKING DICKS. That's the kind of SHIT that only encourages these stupid fucking ideas. God forbid your kids have a gay baby-sitter or teacher, because OBVIOUSLY all the little boys/girls are going to be molested. It CANNOT be that a person, regardless of sexual orientation, simply wants to care for or teach children. Are all heterosexual teachers going to molest children? NO. What about other caregivers? NO. Guess what--there are TONS of heterosexual sex offenders, many of which have gone after children. When a queer friend of mine visited last January, she was holding my daughter's hand through a grocery store, and walked off with her toward the rides and games while I was in line to pay for our things. If ANYONE ever even implied that that was inappropriate, I will promptly lose my shit. IT'S A PROMISE.

I don't understand how quite a lot of heterosexual people think this way. Do they think gay people are STUPID? Or just so, so perverted that they can't help themselves? Queer people just CANNOT be intelligent, responsible, emotionally-healthy, NORMAL PEOPLE JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. My own mother spouts "I DON'T TALK ABOUT MY SEX LIFE SO DON'T TELL ME ABOUT YOURS" the second a queer person's sexuality is mentioned. Because everyone knows gay people can't stop talking about who they have sex with, and how. The news girl on the radio didn't want to go backstage to see Joan Jett quite so much any more once it was mentioned Ms. Jett likes the ladies. BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE JUST SO ATTRACTIVE NO ONE CAN KEEP THEIR HANDS OFF YOU. At least, gay people can't. Gay high school kids are bullied, intimidated, and beaten because everyone is deathly afraid of BEING TOUCHED or LOOKED AT by someone. I can't even imagine how horrible the lives of some of these kids are, especially when locker room situations arise. When I was in high school there was only one boy that was out, and it was a small enough school that people mostly said shit, to him or behind his back--as far as I know, he wasn't physically abused. Still, there were PLENTY of other ways people went out of their way to hurt him or make him feel bad. WRRRYY

Why does it have to be the foremost thing about a person? As soon as some people hear "gay" or "bi" about someone, it seems to be ALL THEY NEED TO KNOW. The queer person can't possibly be JUST A PERSON. Okay, and how about this--how is it even anyone's BUSINESS who someone is sleeping with? Or IN LOVE with? You can be out and proud, but that opens you up to much ridicule and prejudice. You can keep it to yourself, but then you're either keeping it ALL to yourself, or you can tell specific people, but eventually moronic people find out, and then you're back to getting piled on with all of the stupid fucking shit ignorant and oblivious people brand you with.

I guess it's better than it used to be, like thirty years ago, but my god, sometimes the indignation of these comments is too much to bear, and I just want to fucking explode all over these dumb fucks because even one casual comment that's baseless and derogatory only has like five hundred responses I could give for it. LIKE SCIENCE. You know...that logical stuff that PROVES things? Or are we not including since in our prejudice today? You ever notice that the smart, intelligent people are the ones who understand this, while the ignorant, stupid, ~not the brightest crayon~ people are the ones who are all homophobic? I'M JUST SAYING. (That or religion gets them. Read THIS, numbnuts.) Oh god, I don't even want to get into the injustice of marriage equality. EVERY ONE of the arguments against it is STUPID.

RIGHTEOUS ANGER

From http://shaanmichael.tumblr.com/post/287043228:

“Has Uganda gone too far? Should there be any level of legislation against homosexuality? Should homosexuals be protected by legislation as they are in South Africa? What would be the consequences of this bill to you? How will homosexual ‘offences’ be monitored?,” the post added.

Premoderated posts included one from Chris, Guildford, posted at 8.59am, which attracted 51 recommendations of support. He wrote: “Totally agree. Ought to be imposed in the UK too, asap. Bring back some respectable family values. Why do we have to suffer ‘gay pride’ festivals? Would I be allowed to organise a ‘straight pride’ festival? No, thought as much!! If homosexuality is natural, as we are forced to believe, how can they sustain the species? I suggest all gays are put on a remote island somewhere and left for a generation - after which, theoretically there should be none left!”




Oh yeah, that's a great argument. Sure, people who are pro-gay rights claim it's natural, but since when do they claim it's the only way people are to be, like a lot of anti-gay rights people seem to infer? I don't know one pro-gay rights person who thinks every human is supposed to be homosexual, only that a percentage are (or one of the multitude of other different human sexualities and genders), and the only thing they seem to compile everyone into is the right to be treated the same as everyone else. Heterosexual people are the only ones I've ever seen telling people their way was the only way for everyone to be, and the only ones I've ever seen use this dumbass logic, which is just about as stupid as "DURR IF WE LET GAYS MARRY PEOPLE WILL MARRY COWS NEXT"

And, of course, it doesn't even make any fucking sense. Like we really need to go forth and populate the fucking Earth? I THINK WE'RE JUST ABOUT FULL-UP, PAL. Irresponsible teenagers and adults fuck around and get pregnant and abandon, abuse, or put their children up for adoption and clog the systems while foster care and adoptive homes go through intensive screening (especially gay couples, who don't even have the option of adopting in some states) and wait on three-year-long lists before they're ~granted~ a child. That dude is so right, gays are totally pointless because they can't have children. Everyone infertile or childless shouldn't be married either, and YOU'RE NEXT. COME ON YOU GUYS, BABIES ARE PRODUCTS OF MARRIAGE AND THE ONLY ONES THAT MAKE LIFELONG COMMITMENT TO ANOTHER PERSON WORTHWHILE
