Think NPR crossed with NATURAL BORN KILLERS, a spoonful of STRANGERS WITH CANDY, a little MST3K, a healthy dose of THE WIRE, and just a dash of THE FACTS OF LIFE for good measure. The boarding school version though, not that lame ass business venture fronted by Mrs. Garrett. That sucked.
Ricky Gervais’s Twitter account, 4/17/13
Not sure how much gas I have left… How much longer I can do this. Need to get my shit together. Quit letting things outside my control matter.
I have no idea what I’m doing anymore. I’m just making this shit up as I go along. I’m weary. Sleep is not helping. It doesn’t matter how much rest I get. Every day feels the same.
Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comic series, in response to the question “Why are all the strong female characters either crazy or dead”
And now that you have this information, carry on however you wish to.
sexism often goes unnoticed by the ones who have never been touched by it
Fucking moron. My cousin weighs 100 pounds & she’s a bad ass super strong construction worker. And if your argument is that in reality women are physically weaker, maybe in your horror fantasy world you can overcome that belief because something else that doesn’t exist in reality are FUCKING ZOMBIES. God! IDIOT!(via bohemea)
I wasn’t aware that feminism equaled replicating the things a man can do. I always considered it about the opportunity to fairly and without bias pursue anything that is out there. In other words, regardless of the anecdotal or empirical evidence, what the fuck does the lack of women hunters have to do with anything? Why is Kirkman transitioning from the biological fact that men generally have more upper body strength to a conclusion? Maybe it’s just that a lot of women don’t have an interest in doing the same dumb shit men do.
And speaking of anecdotal- my father in law works for the American Legion on their youth programs. One of those is their Junior Shooters program. The national tournament is held at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs Colorado every August. You’d be surprised how many entrants and winners are young women. Maybe Kirkman should look at that before he writes his next character…
Guy is responding to one of Ricky Gervais’s tweets on proving factually god exists.
He replies science is just like religion - it’s another philosophy that you can’t prove.
Head. Fucking. Desk.
I suppose if you want to believe in a little man in the sky, fine. And if you want to argue with a comedian who is obviously trolling you, fine as well. But this statement has to be one of the dumbest things I have ever read. It so fundamentally demonstrates a complete lack of comprehension on science and measurements while at the same time pea cocking an absurd level of stupidity, I want to rip something apart.
Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick. The human race is DOOMED.
The guy’s Twitter bio says he is a lawyer, which is equal parts frightening and explanatory, frankly.
“Scott Lemieux at the American Prospect and Irin Carmon at Salon have dealt in more depth with this claim, so I’ll just add this: It’s been 44 years since the riots of Stonewall pushed the gay rights agenda into the public consciousness in a big way. Since then, Mick Jagger went from dangerous sex symbol to the guy dancing in a Maroon 5 video, hip-hop was invented, and the fashionable jean silhouette has changed roughly 187 times. We’ve given the homophobes plenty of time to think this over. It’s time to move on without them.”
