Groo's Wanderings

learntobabble:

I just saw the best thing. Three kids, all sun tanned from the summer, sitting on a park bench eating giant slices of pizza and laughing hysterically. Just having the best fucking time. God I miss being a kid sometimes.

But while you’re still attached and/or living with your partner? Bitching and moaning to potential sexytime partners is really poor form. And, if a sexy human you want to sex tells you that their partner is BORING? And possessive? AND THAT’S ALL THEY CAN COME UP WITH? Run away screaming. People who fuck people then tell other people they want to fuck that the people they’re currently fucking are super fucking dull? These are bad people.

These are people who just don’t like other people. “Jesus, my girlfriend, I swear she breathes in oxygen and breathes out carbon dioxide sometimes,” they might as well say. Because when you go to bed with someone and wake up and eat together and go to bed together again and wake up? See, I’m already bored by both of you just writing it down. People get boring. An inescapable fact. PEOPLE. GET. BORING. People of all stripes, from all walks of life, get boring. Boring is not a reason for anything. You say someone you’re fucking is boring? The first thing I think is sweet god in heaven YOU my friend are BORING. Stop taking it out on everyone else.

Better yet is POSSESSIVE, as in “My girlfriend, she just gets really possessive, it’s a total drag.” Gee, that sucks, why does your miserable insecure shrew of a woman have to get all possessive and shit, when she has a guy who’s sweet and honest and opens up within minutes about what a jealous little bitch HEY WAIT A MINUTE.

Showing empathy and understanding does not mean you are in someone’s pocket.  Apologizing for something is not weakness. Calling out and talking about something problematic is not bad. Freedom of speech does not mean you are free from criticism. What really makes me sad about the whole situation is words are powerful things, and more so when so many people look up to you and take your word as law.

Literally all she did was point out misognyistic tropes in video games, and this is the aftermath. Men continually prove feminism correct and necessary.

Another Thin Man (1939)

Thin Man drinking game: one person drinks when Nick drinks. The other person drinks when Nora drinks. If you make it at least 20 minutes in without passing out, you win.

Just re-read The Thin Man again. I’m always struck first by the life and breadth of Hammett’s characters and scenes conveyed in so few words, and struck second by the mind-boggling amount of alcohol consumed throughout.
