I'm betting more people would watch the show if you would actually say what it is in your photoset. All I know is that it's on IFC, and may involve Darnell from My Name is Earl.

I don't give a FUCK about being a bigot.

Again, not giving a fuck if I'm sexist. I'm right.

Yup, always the mother's fault! Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I can tell you one thing. If it's between trusting my gut and giving into a bunch of internet bullies you can bet which one I'll choose.
The funny thing is that the statistics she used to support her point had been proved objectively wrong by this point in the conversation. She said 99% of child abusers were men, therefore, she was justified in not wanting a man to wipe her girl's behind at preschool. Then she admits she's being sexist, and she doesn't care. Then she deletes the post (backup) and apologizes (NSFW title). Note: Those are Men's Rights Advocates and their sites involved, so be prepared for the exact same sort of generalizations you'd see on, say, Shakesville, just in the other direction

The more complex something is, the more likely it is to fail.

When people speak in anger, they generally use shorter words than they would if they were calm. They are also less likely to think about what they are saying. (I, personally, am an exception to both.)

So if someone is angry, and they are still describing things using words of four syllables or more that no one would ever use in household conversation, there is an excellent chance that what they are spouting is a logical shambles, especially if they use a good deal of certain one syllable words right afterwards.

tl;dr: If someone is pissed off and still explaining things in a complicated way, they're probably wrong. Especially if they swear a lot right afterward.

This post bought to you by someone on tumblr who said that the acts of minorities and social justice advocates oppressing majorities based on nothing more than the fact that they disagree "exist out of a fear of embodying them." Plus ye ode "People of Color can't be racist against white folks". in response to this bit of joy and shining light.
