I got in a huge internet argument with two dudes (one a friend, one not a friend) about Gavin McInnes' rant against feminism:
The non-friend told me he doesn't "debate with feminists, just like flat-earth believers and creationists" and also saying that men and women should be equal is like saying that women are just "men with tits." The non-friend is also a ranty semi-conservative semi-MRA blogger who defends MRA type people and says ladeeez are overreacting to just about everything. The original friend that posted it, I used to at least sort of respect his opinions, so him posting it (and saying it made "good points") really got me going in the first place.
Anyways. How do you handle these douchecanoes? Do you just walk away?
@rosaline None in my 'hood, two years running. We live too close to a college campus. *whomp whomp*
My friend is having a bachelorette party this weekend!
For her gift, I'm putting together a "hipster nonsense" party-in-a-bag.
So far: craft beers, fair trade chocolate, homemade salsa, organic tortilla chips, some of these goofy multi-purpose coozies I found that are pretty nifty: http://www.freakerusa.com/
Anybody else out there that cannot stop hate-reading blogs and ragging on their authors? Yeah. You know what site I'm talking about. I've never been into celebrity gossip or politics really...but man...I love hate-reading blogs and it makes me feel so guilty! I have other, more constructive hobbies and consider myself a fairly positive person except for this one guilty pleasure.
The bad thing is that it's starting to seep into other parts of my life. I hate-read people's Facebook pages and rag on them for being lazy and whiny. I should stop! I need to stop. But it feels so goooood.

Love Bill! Saw him speak last year and he was just fantabulous. He is also one of my favorite humans!
@lobsterhug Do you do cables? I feel like cabled legwarmers would be amazing. (Mostly because I am thinking of buying some sweater tights for a similar look)
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) DOES YOUR JAW ALSO HURT?!
Seriously though. I am not a fan of this funk! I hope you also defunkify soon. I am not really one to be prone to depression (never been on meds, only been to a counselor for a brief time after a baaaaad breakup). Usually I do ok. This year though, has been rough. A tough death in the family + getting older + learning to define myself as a successful adult...IT SUCKS YO
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) @JanieS
Thanks...yah, boo to changing seasons. I'm actually doing ok with the exercise - it has been supremely nice here in the Midwest and I'm not complaining about the weather AT ALL. I'm getting outside and doing the running/biking/dog walking thing, but sometimes I feel like I'm just going through the motions and not really enjoying the moment. DOES THAT SOUND DUMB? ;)
@lobsterhug Keep on keepin' on mah friend!
