Re: “Tri-Met Fare Ticket Nazi

WHy does it seem like the most wingerish of the commentors are the ones doing the whiny bitching hippie thing these days? I thought those guys were supposed to be the strong rugged individualists.

Hey! Play by the rules, fuckface! We know fares are regressive taxation. Doesn't mean you fucking don't do your part.

Re: “Comp Me!

Huh. I've been drinking and tipping for nearly fifteen years, and I've never felt entitled to a free beer. Because I'm not a huge fucking baby.

Re: “What's the Washington Redskins' Mascot?

Seriously, if there was a team from Brooklyn called the "New York Kikes" everyone would recognize instantly that that wold be fucking ridiculous!

Because people mythologize native Americans, for some reason it's like "Oh, it's okay, they're just fucking Disney cartoons, big deal."

Re: “So, Portland is the Beer Capitol of the World, Now?

But somebody out there actually IS the world's greatest dad, objectively, with science.

Re: “My Least Favorite Piece of Misogyny This Week: Zooey Deschanel Edition

Huh. Seems like "tough" people of either gender do and say stupid things all of the time, and it doesn't make it any harder to deride them.

I guess there are a lot of reasons that not-small girls could get mad at small girls, but this one seems like a stretch. If nobody's participating in a behavior to attract mates (which, most things that you do, even if you think they aren't, are meant to attract a mate, from "being tough" to "adhering to a specific tendency in demonstrating value to a specific group though a public declaration of personal politics") then what is the problem with any person's qualities of "attractiveness" or lack of them?

In other words, this post seems pointless except as a rumination on the navel, which, while awesome to some when pontificated upon in the annals of livejournal circa 1999, seems pretty sad when printed in a relatively well known weekly's blog.

Well, you've got laundry money at least.

Re: “It was Sunday, really?

I picture this as being written by some fat white trash broad with fading tattoos and one of those really way too large, cumbersome strollers that looks like it probably cost $500 but you can't figure out how they saved enough what with all of the oxy abuse with an already-fat two year old that will eventually end up being in jail in a dozen years sitting in it drinking a coke.

Is that judgmental of me?
