Buzzfeed and Their Little Privileges

Today I read a four day old article that was complete shallow bullshit. Actually the real shit is should be compared to is chickenshit, since chicken shitting is for cowards who amplify everyone else’s downfalls to make their own selves look grand. Go ask a big cisgendered male military veteran about chicken shit and the kind of cowards who are guilty of it.

Which brings me to the chickenshitter at hand. It is cowardly to write an exhaustive cultural commentary on the supposed insulting oppression of Tom Hank’s whiteness and post it in the millennial version of huffpost; which is the cesspool of narcissism gone to hell and resurrected. Especially when once again the one holding the bullhorn is a WHITE female, who must have like some aggravation towards her own dad that she is taking out on Mr. Hanks. Yes, I’m the other side of the coin..there are many things I could be writing about. Things like Syria, Russia, impending apocalypse. The ever growing mountain of crimes and dead bodies associated with the Clinton family and how the Bush family hates Donald Trump and no one seems to be making that connection. I could be writing about the large gathering of Native Americans that the media didn’t cover, who collectively forgave this nation and how this is a spiritual awakening and  we could really be making true progress in interracial relations. I could be writing about how I only just discovered that the story about Trump making fun of a disabled reporter was a complete fabrication, and how I felt “took” and made a fool of by the media.

But I’m not. I’m writing about my disgust for the kind of writers who write ten page blogs about “white dadness” and supposed “white privilege”. Call me triggered.

eye roll krysten ritter eyeroll bitch please kill me

I sent the article to a liberal friend who was also shocked. And angered. He defended Hanks “Tom Hanks is one of the most progressive people in the busniess, Buzzfeed will hurt for writing this”.
No.No, actually. No they wont. Even though the majority of comments on the article are confused and wondering what the point of the author was. Even though they are defensive for the their love of the beloved “dad” of actors. Buzzfeed wont suffer or take heat for their stupidity. Just like huffpost has never suffered for their stupidity and hypocrisy. Because this is what we have now. These are the “legit” arguments we are up against. Constantly. You see them in comment wars on youtube and sighing eye rolling offensive arguments against the slightest joke. It is the reason we have documentaries like “Can We Take A Joke” and institutions like FIRE. We are trying to preserve what little bit of free thought is left. I hear it every time I hear the kids at the table next to me in Starbucks talking in puffs of impassioned nothingness. I see it’s result and the uphill fight it causes  when a progressive lesbian professors ask me if I can explain to them the term “cisgender” because they heard their students using it and as educators they think it is the stupidest word to ever pollute the English language. I hear it when I hear actual arguments against the nineties television series “Friends” for its lack of diversity and unrealistic representation of New York City …since all the main characters were white. Never mind the show is called “Friends” and is based on five people and not entire college dorm or the entire city of New York. Never mind it was one of the first shows to feature lesbian relationships on prime time. Never mind that Ross was involved in more than one interracial relationship. Even the racially diverse shows of the past are accused of only being made “for white people”(Cosby /Different World). If millennials had their way all books would be banned and all past television shows and possibly music (except for Pink Floyd and Zepplin) would be trashed. We would all have to sign forms acknowledging our oppressive whiteness just to express any and every view. It never ends. We are guilty when we try to atone for our sins and we are guilty when we don’t. Guilty when we bathe in our guilt and guilty when we don’t. Tom Hanks is white. And a legend. Damn him and the fellow white people who went to watch his movies. AH-And the DADNESS of him. Screw all white dads and those of us who loved our white dads. It just goes on and on.

shut up sex and the city carrie bradshaw satc shaddup

These are the actual cultural issues that today’s cultural/social/political studies majors worry about. Seriously. And there is no safe room for any of us from the ilk. Liberals of old are not safe. The progressives born of the sixties and inspiring generations till the nineties are just as disrespected and spat upon as any middle aged conservative. Believe me, I have a very diverse group of friends or associations. When I say diverse I mean of various cultures and ethnic backgrounds. I mean of various age groups. I mean of differing sexual orientation. The gay republican, the libertarian female, the black Trump supporter, and the classically liberal non voting male who just wants everyone to think critically and objectively, will all get the same vile vitriol of speeches that has no life experience to back it up. Because everyone with an opinion that is different ( diverse) is “an outlier” and is shunned or ignored and made not to exist, while everyone else is up for scrutiny and long posts about privilege and comfort. That kind of post comes from the exact same “safe and privileged” place …yeah it’s called chickenshit.

The most liberal and progressive and politically outspoken man in Hollywood is guilty of nothing more than being a white man, and according to the little child of privilege that wrote the piece, he is only famous because he makes white people comfortable. Wow.

 

slay flip the bird i slay middle fingers beyonce

Millennials. Can we just send them on a permanent field trip to Mosul? Or Venezuela? See what kind of naval lint they can find to get on about there, when all their own privileges of speech and dedication mean absolutely nothing.

 

Westboro Baptist…in Tuscaloosa?

  Westboro Baptist apparently has too much room in their brains and too much time on their hands. As small as their little assemblies are these days, I guess they just have to constantly beat the same dog just under different circumstances. The anniversary of the  tragic storms of April 27th 2011, have came and went. I blogged about the anniversary on April 27th…I guess it just occurred to Westboro that a demonstration to “remind” Tuscaloosa of the event and their numerous unknown sins, in the past couple of days.

No permit to demonstrate has been obtained by the church and the representatives of UA and Tuscaloosa have not been notified by them either. This did not keep the word from spreading all over facebook and every other social media however. People are already up in arms and ready to hold a few “demonstrations” themselves. I thought about this. Paul, in the Bible, before he “saw the light” was a murderer. He murdered Christians and truly believed he was doing the will of God. Anyone can be deceived, willingly or truly. These people have had their tires slashed, been threatened physically, been interviewed, and have had counter protests for YEARS. They don’t lose wind. They just keep trucking with their stupid mantras and blood pressure raising antics. They inspire absolute hate to rise in true Christians. Hate breeds hate, and that is what these people are. Nothing in their message can be found in scripture, and their flock is growing thin. I hear their congregation has thinned and people are coming out of this cult. It’s leader looks like he may be on his last breath in a year or two, and the remaining people look so bitter,that I can only deduct that the hate they inspire only breathes life into them. We can “show them how tough Bama can be” but will they REALLY care? Will they run screaming away, never to return? I doubt it. If I had a son or a husband who died at war, I would imagine them all hanging from ropes if they came to picket his funeral. Nothing can possibly beat what those families have felt. Just as the families who lost students at UA, also will be hurt if this demonstration is allowed. Rubbing gravel and sand in the wounds of America is what these people do.

So what IS the answer…to not give them a permit would be a good one. But to get violent, as justified as it would seem, would not solve the problem. Since I do believe it is a hate based attention whoring establishment, I dont even think counter demonstration helps. Showing them peace and love (though the thought makes us gag) is what Jesus would do…love our enemies you know. Not giving them the attention they seek might be the best option. Let them scream their little lungs out about how God spun the storm and the victims bled “Crimson” (yeah they said it). Let them choke on themselves, get back in their crappy van and go back home deflated.

That wont happen, I’m hoping they just don’t come. I’m hoping they wont be that stupid.

UNDATED (WAAY) – The Westboro Baptist Church has plans to picket at the University of Alabama this month.

An announcement on the church’s website states that the group will picket May 18 “to remind them of the wrath of God that visited them two years ago, wherein they did not have finals, and their graduation exercises were cancelled.”

Six UA students died when an EF-4 tornado touched down in Tuscaloosa on April 27, 2011. Finals were cancelled and commencement ceremonies were pushed back three months as a result of the tornado.

Members of the Topeka, Kan.-based church rally frequently at soldier funerals and other tragedies, believing that they are God’s punishment for America’s tolerance of homosexuality.

The group also announced other picket lines at Graceland in Memphis, the University of Mississippi and at Atlanta’s Morehouse College, where President Obama is scheduled to deliver a commencement address May 19.

On Reality

The scene has no music,a pseudo serene background. The girl is a cliche in her red spaghetti strap dress,one strap only being held up because the corresponding hand is consistently touching her own crying face. The sobbing sounds are getting irritating and I try to figure out if this is a new “worlds best actress hunt” since today’s reality shows have taken the place of games shows,talk shows and soap operas of the nineties.
No its not an unreal talent scout show where the producers are trying to convince the masses that even they don’t know who the winner will be…it is  “The Bachelor” which to my chagrin is returning….again. I cant stand it. I cant handle it. I have watched “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s” when there is just nothing else on but…..seriously? This girls mascara did not even have the decency to run,and I am supposed to be sad about…what am I supposed to be sad about? I’m supposed to feel bad that way too many girls show up for a casting call on a televisions show that is NOT even representative of a Cinderella story because every single one of these girls come on the show ready and willing to rip each other apart,and ready and willing to allow a complete stranger to judge their looks,their personality and all their “extra”  qualities? ( which in my pinons should not even be part of the show,you cant have a serious progressive relationship with ten girls at once ) That all the women of America tune in,not because they are hopeful for their own fairy tale but because they have actually given up on their own fairy tale and they want to sit and gripe about this stupid show,while they judge which girl is really “genuine”? I’m sorry but I just don’t feel sorry for you,you really bad crier.

I guess Reality TV still exists because everyone…I mean EVERYONE must  feel like they will one day get a shot at 5 seconds of fame. Stand here and look vulnerable crying …maybe a real movie producer will put you in a real role with a deep script….not. Sign a ton of paperwork and then when you get jilted sell your story about how you “were humiliated” …..I think I am gonna be sick if I see that again. Not because people jump at any chance for fleeting fame that bears no quality but that the masses get emotionally involved and hate so many of the “actors” on a personal level. I heard and read so much hate towards Kim Kardashian we she got a lightning divorce after a much hyped fairy tale wedding. WHY? Because it was not our Fairy Tale wedding? Because we cant afford to throw away a miilion dollars and not give a care what the world thinks about our personal life? Hey at least KK already had money and a business sense…she don’t need this show babe.

I guess things really never change,when I was a little girl I would hear dollar store cashiers and salon stylists talking about the characters in soap operas like they were real people and all the things they should do to make their lives better,their looks nicer and their relationships last. Too bad the Soap Operas actually were more interesting and they were known actors that couldn’t move on to better things on screen-not self proclaimed real people who think they deserve what ever they are getting paid to compete for.

One last note….I may have eyed a few humiliating dating sites but the day that I would get on a national television and fight claw and scream over a man I do not even know,and then cry and sob because he rejects me….well that day is not going to happen and not because I wasn’t chosen but because I the audition doesn’t even appeal. I would rather work at The Tilted Kilt and get paid by men who like pretend I’m cute and stupid then to go on “The Bachelor” and prove their theory  right.
