You know, I've seen a few different people saying that everyone needs to watch Olbermann's Special Comment in response to the shooting, no matter what our politics or opinions on Olbermann are.

Fun fact: in response to the way he potentially triggery )

Sooooo I'll be off my flist for a few days, by which time I assume it'll have run its linking course and I can be reasonably certain I won't run into the line of "you need to watch this" again. Because yeah, I agree 100% with what he's saying, or what I heard him saying before I had to admit that I wasn't going to be able to make it through this and closed the tab, but I actually cannot listen to Olbermann talk at this point. So please, please, please stop telling me that I have to, that my feelings on someone who has done more than his fair share to minimize and belittle rape and endanger women involved in a rape case don't matter because he said something important.

(I'm bipartisan in my distaste for dickish and dangerous rhetoric and will agree that we need to make fucking well sure the Tea Party's cheerful calling for Giffords's targeting, among others, for gun violence isn't forgotten. But yeah, other people have said that better than I.)

Comments on, but screened. And I promise, I'm pretty okay, I'm just trying to make sure I stay that way.

My birthday was nice! Between that and it being a coworker's last day, we had pizza for lunch at work, and then I went out with the Cabal and it was delightful. Afterwords, why so great.

Today, however, seems to be a day for capslocking angrily and semi-coherently about things! Man oh man, LJ, mostly I am on Tumblr these days but today I am just too full of angry for one blog. Things I have TL;DRed about: my issue with including the Bible in a list of things that might be ~next on the chopping block~ if the new Huck Finn sets a precedent; a butch lesbian being a condescending douche and reinforcing patriarchal ideas about femininity. )

ANOREXIA IS A LOT MORE COMPLEX THAN JUST WANTING TO BE SKINNY. STOP FUCKING REDUCING IT TO THAT AND SAYING SKINNY GIRLS JUST NEED TO ~LET THEMSELVES ENJOY EATING~, BECAUSE IT IS CONDESCENDING, INFANTILIZING, AND IF THEY REALLY DO HAVE ANOREXIA (BECAUSE GUESS WHAT, SOMETIMES PEOPLE ARE JUST BUILT LIKE THAT), IT IS REALLY FUCKING ABLIST AS WELL.

Man I was all happy because it's been in the 40s and the snow is melting and I'm starting to wake up to birds singing and it's getting light earlier, but apparently we're supposed to get more fucking snow tomorrow, so between the two, I am kind of cranky right now.
