Cus I just had dinner with the real-life Hitch, David Coleman.
As in the Dating Doctor? He’s kind of awesome. I got to spend a whole weekend on a retreat with him. He convinced me to start going to counseling when I was in an emotionally abusive relationship. Cool dude.

All the shitty stuff that happened in Oklahoma has got me kinda bummed
Not only because stuff like that in general sucks, but because it just making me kinda mentally dwell on everything that happened in Joplin and everyone that knows me and knows what happened there is asking me about how everything went down and how it was “so sad but so awesome” that I watched my next door neighbor’s house get destroyed and everything that house and down was utterly demolished, like yeah that’s super fucking cool to ask someone about please also ask me about going to five funerals in the course of a month and who of the 162 people that were killed did I know, that’s really tasteful also ty ty
I can’t wait for Obama to fly over all humanitarian-style and start talking some shitty hope flak to everyone over there, like he did in Joplin. Yes because people need to hear empty encouragement from an irrelevant figurehead more than they need food, a livable home, or somewhere to live at all. Oh, and we definitely need Extreme Home Makeover to go there too, building six-figure homes that send the property taxes of the homes and the surrounding homes through the fucking roof and put even more people out of a place to live just for the sake of some out-of-state business getting some advertisement during a tragedy.
I also can’t wait for Mid-Western broadcasters to bring kids on TV and feed them lines about how the tornado took their loved ones away because DUH LAWRD wanted them to die. ALMIGHTY JAYZUSS wanted your relatives to be crushed and burned to death within their own homes. Then the East and West coast broadcasters (looking at you NBC) take this and make it out to be a little sob-story about the strength and courage of those quaint little country folk and their faith through adversity. Oh yeah, strength. The power of Jeeeeeeeezus. Definitely.
I just wish things like this were handled better, not like a story for the public’s interest in their comfortable homes, but as an actual event that happened to real life human beings. Donating money is great and all, but as soon as the charities stop begging for money and putting sad classical music to images of destroyed homes suddenly everyone forgets about it. Because its just automatically better because the media said so.
TLDR fad activism and faux-empathy is a fucking cancer on society can we just not
Preach, girl, preach. I could not agree more about the bullshit media and whatnot.
Also, I’m glad you made it out of Joplin okay. I thought you were there when it happened. The weather is weird, man, like crazy weird. Nature is just fucking weird.
There’s men who like to beat little girls. Men who like to rape them. Saved your sister from some of them…

|Men at bars:||What the fuck, why not? Come on. Come ON, let me buy you some alcohol. God, I was being nice. Why would you turn down my generous offer? I guess chivalry really is dead. What a bitch.
