Realizing via facebook (in the last few days of everyone posting on the issue) that THANK GOD you never got together with some of your college crush/almost boyfriends because they are homophobic as hell.

LOL, I didn’t realize I was plagiarizing you with that post a few days ago, but clearly I was.

Sorry to hear that, hon.

There are some Christians who prefer structure, authority, discipline, and hard work. They want to schedule their Bible-reading and they need to check off a calendar and they want to attend church on a weekly planner. They tithe to the exact dollar and they dress up every Sunday and they would never ever curse, not even after getting a papercut from their latest Oswald Chambers devotional. And I think that’s okay. I don’t think religion has to be such a bad word all the time. Again, effort is not legalism, because legalism is legalism.

I think God has room for the highly devout church guy who sits in the front row because God respects our individual dignity and personalities. God does not mock the button-up bravado of the sincerely stiff worshiper — because this sort of Christian is still a sinner in need of grace, like you and me, and we’re not called to treat him based on any other parameter.

God has wired each of us differently. Some Christians will drink a beer and smoke cigars and get tattoos and pray in the woods by the river with a handmade journal and Lecrae and Mumford and Sons and Nirvana in their iPod — because this is how they meet Jesus. God has a limitless imagination to speak to each of us in a wild variety of ways. To limit this is to limit God, and I don’t ever want to suckerpunch His sovereignty.

Back in the olden days, when a single lady reached a certain age, she might be tempted to look back over her long romantic history with regret and nostalgia for her bygone suitors or would-be suitors. She might wonder to herself, Was I right to reject that fellow out of hand? Perhaps he may have matured into a fine young man in time. Perhaps I was too hasty…

But now, my friends, there is facebook.

Now a single lady such as myself need not languish in fruitless curiosity about He-Who-Might-Have-Been. She can just look him up online. She can see that article he has recently posted about the need for wives to submit to their husbands or learn that his favorite director is Michael Bay or note his enthusiastic support of the NRA. Perhaps she may find that he thinks immigrants should self-deport or that Final Fantasy 4 is “the shiz.” With raised eyebrows, she can discover his penchant for thinly veiled racist slurs and his blatant homophobia.

She can breathe a sigh of satisfaction at her own excellent judgment and return to getting the fuck on with her life.

It’s truly a wonderful time to be alive.

Feminism had a noble cause for equality until it became a hate movement .

People have been accusing feminism of being a hate movement since women started trying to get the right to vote.

YUP! Remember this when people say feminism has gone too far! Because treating women as full human beings has always been seen as “going too far”.

Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I would love to know what this means.

I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.

"I want to make electronic music and perform in Japan. But it’s tough to stay motivated. At some point you forget your original intention, but you still have to keep doing it every day.""What do you mean by ‘original intention?’""When you start something, your motivation comes from a really strong feeling of inspiration. As you go on, it gets harder and harder to remember that feeling."

So true. I’m needing some inspiration to not spend (another) whole day reading fantasy heist novels and watching Girls.
