Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen

Assholes 1 and 2 are at it again, this time with help from a new guy, who we'll call Asshole #4 (fooled you didn't I!) This time they are bothered that the LCD lights on the new 35W bridge displayed rainbow colors on Gay Pride weekend.  In fact, and not surprisingly, they are not at all happy that gay people parade around telling people how proud they are- straight people could never do that!  And don't even get them started on Black History Month (Can you imagine the lawsuits if we tried to have a White History Month?!)  I wasn't going to say anything, but they had such a long conversation about how proud they should be (ironic, huh?) for being willing to speak up and say things no one else had the guts to say.

My post:

Gay pride started because society made them feel like they should be ashamed and they thought they'd have a weekend to remind everyone how silly that was. And we already have White History months. They're called January, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and December. You guys will not get this, but it is very easy to be a white, straight, American male. We are the Yankees of society. And it may be fun to play the victim card and passive-aggressively say, "I don't care. I just think it's funny, but you know everyone hates me because I'm a white, American male." That's clearly untrue of course, but even if it was, you're still the Yankees. Be humble in your blessings. Which is not only the decent thing to do, it seems to be what Jesus wanted.

  1. And nobody hates you because you're a "white, American male". They hate you because you're a pompous ass with no sense of empathy. And you probably drink MGD 64.

  2. There is that! And you think you're a self-made man who "started with nothing" when people in Haiti or someplace can tell you what "starting with nothing" really means.
