There are already people blaming the Southern Poverty Law Center/liberals in general for the shooting at the Family Research Council, blaming them for referring to the FRC as a hate group.
The FRC is a hate group. Converstion therapy, lobbying against hate crime legislation, against anti-bullying programs, and actively working to promote the idea that homosexuality is equivalent to pedophilia is hate.
That doesn’t make what happened right, and it’s a tragedy that someone was shot (likely a man just earning a paycheck, not affiliated with the group’s politics), but a reactionary denial of the FRC’s policies and shifting the blame to “those damn liberals inciting violence” is in no way acceptable.
Partisan politics have no place in this. Hate isn’t a zero sum game, whether institutionally perpetrated by a lobbying group or personally by an asshole with a gun.

The Big Bang Theory should end with Leonard marrying Priya and Penny realizing that she’s been in love with Raj the whole time. She dated Leonard as an attempt to break her cycle of dating pushy alpha male types while desiring a gentle, quiet partner who would listen to her for once, but Leonard wasn’t a viable option. The meek Raj allows her to take control and have no concerns over infidelity as with past partners, at least when sober. To ensure that he never regains his drunken confidence, the two convert to Mormonism at their wedding.

Companies that exclusively register domains to try and sell to someone for $2000 should have both their servers and executives drawn and quartered.
I’ve probably posted a similar idea before. I was reminded of it tonight. Still applies.

I just realized the exact moment CNN became unbearable.
It was the very second an executive uttered the phrase “You know what would bring in ratings? Putting one of those myface crawls on the bottom. People love to hear themselves talk. If the ratings get a boost give it a whole show.”

It just hit me, but I think Rush Limbaugh has no idea how birth control works. He seems to think you take a pill or get a shot for every sexual encounter, judging by his statement “[Fluke]‘s having so much sex she can’t afford her own birth control pills.”
Does he think the birth control pill is like Viagra? I know he judges most things through the lens of Oxycontin, but you don’t grind up and snort a handful of progesterone pills whenever you have sex, you just take one daily.

There was a douchebag I saw on the way to school with a home-stenciled “Vaginaterian” label on his truck. I wondered what kind of asshole does that. Turned out it was a Juggalo, by the other stickers.
Fucking Juggalos can’t even get “vagitarian” right.

In world world is this acceptable? We’re trying to make some god damn progress here, and GameStop is trying to reinforce “Whatever you sad nerd, girls don’t like video games, they like flowers and kittens and if they DID play games it’d be Barbie Horse Adventures I bet.”
Women do play games, the men who play games want more women to play games, and maybe GameStop should stop pandering to the crowd that makes women mute their microphones when they get on Xbox Live.
I think this is actually my final “You know what? Fuck GameStop” catalyst. Turns out shitty customer support and being a glorified pawn shop didn’t quite do what misogyny does.

Glenn Beck’s running ads for his website now that even Fox doesn’t want him. The pitch is, according to his own words, for viewers who a) like their news on TV, b) want the truth, and c) want to get it now. So he suggests that you watch his show (definitely not the truth), on his website (definitely not TV), between 5-7 (definitely not immediately).
He lists three criteria and meets none of them. How is it people ever saw this man as something other than an idiot?

Do you think necrophiliacs ever have relationship issues? Does the man get annoyed when “How was your day?” goes ignored for once? Yes, I’m assuming the necrophiliac is a male because 99% of those engaged in paraphilias are men.
Warning-Please don’t read this. Really. It’s horrible. I’m an awful person and I blame sexology classes for it. But it is funny.
I’m pretty sure dead girls suck at cuddling. I’m also pretty sure sex is always going to be in the same position, which must get boring. But they must argue too, right?
“Well I don’t KNOW if it’s any good for you if you won’t speak up! Look, I love you, I want to make you happy. Stop giving me the silent treatment, you can’t be mad at me if you never react!”
She, of course, says nothing.
“Well I’m sorry if you’re embarrassed but you have to say something. I don’t know if that’s labial engorgement or post-mortem bruising! Why are you ignoring me?”
End me being a terrible, terrible person. At least for this entry.
