I know there’s the saying “pick your battles wisely” but do I really have to? If I know something is wrong, objectively wrong, shouldn’t I say something? I don’t see discussion with the possibility of controversy as conflict. Why are people afraid to say what’s on their mind? Why are dissenting opinions stigmatized?
When sensitivity becomes more of an impediment...
I realize that we live in ever-developing times. I understand that there’s all sorts of people, views, conditions, thoughts and that in attempt to ‘evolve’ most people try to be sensitive to these differing perspectives. But I hate when we become over-sensitive to people different from us, when preferential treatment or over-consideration is given to people solely for the...
I just had a very, very sad thought. The two brothers accountable for the Boston Bomings will have more sway, more influence on society than my words ever will. Violence trumps constructivism. And it’s sad because I feel like I have so much to say that will ultimately go unheard.
I gotta go the fuck to bed.
Now is not the time to be listening to sad music.

angels-and-angles: Wow, accidentally deleted my original post. Reblogging so I can keep it in my archives. —— As defined by urban dictionary, the friendzone is… “When you are expected to support a girl you really like while she searches for a smarter, richer, and more handsome boyfriend. There is little you can do without feeling like a dick. All in all, one of the meanest things a girl can...

brodinsons: Obama is not perfect. Obama is a politician. He will skew phrases and wording to benefit his party. As will all politicians. The fact remains that Romney has explicitly stated that he has “hired a binder of women” while giving them “flexible schedules” to get them home to make dinner for their husbands on time and has somehow managed to make a debate topic about firearms into his...

Very rarely do I outright agree with a pundit on television, but this one guy kinda nailed it on the head. The inordinately wealthy Americans tend not to think themselves as part of the system - that they are excluded from the rules that apply to most people (whether it be financially with taxes or in other facets of society). Romney was exemplifying this generalization by not adhering to...
