Rant post: ENGAGE.
I fucking hate it when I'm on the bookface (mine is here if you so wish to befriend me and found out how terrible I am in real time - just put who you are in the optional message thingy!) and someone posts a status, usually about something that just plain isn't right. I respond to it, giving valid arguments, and then I get a response.
Eagerly, I click it, ready to read the bullshit I have started - only to see that the person has responded to something - just not what I have written. They literally make up their own response to argue against.
I had a friend who did this ALL THE TIME. She'd post something about how birth control was BAD EVIL WRONG (and how her paternal grandfather, a devout catholic, used the "rhythm method" of contraception, and thought nothing of how that resulted into him having eleven children - totally believing that they had that many kids from choice and not because they used bollucks contraception). I would point out that no, that's not how the human body works, or has ever worked. I'd then get a response that had....nothing to do with the point i'd just made. Here's an example.
Her: CONDOMS DON'T WORK. ONLY THE RHYTHM METHOD WORKS 100%!
Me: The fuck? No. No it doesn't. Women can get pregnant at any and all times of their cycle. Please do some research.
Her: PILLS ARE WORSE, THEY NEVER WORK EVER!
Me: Well, yes they do. I would know. I take them. Mostly for my horrible period pains that literally nearly kill me.
Her: WELL I USED TO HAVE PERIOD PAIN. I CUT OUT RED MEAT AND DAIRY AND IT WENT AWAY!
Me: I'm a vegetarian and lactose-intolerant. I doubt that's the problem.
Her: ABORTION IS WRONG.
Literally. Lit. Er.Al. Ly. that was her response. She also said she opposed abortion because her father tried to force a miscarriage by making her mother drink turpentine. And this is a valid reason to oppose abortion - "my mother was scared and tried to miscarry in a way that could have killed her. Ergo I will take away the save avenue for women in these situations, so as to cause more of these stories". What the fuck is the LOGIC behind that? If I found out my mother had done the same thing, it would only make me support abortion more.
She actually deleted me from facebook after I asked her if she even actually read what I was saying to her, several times, after she just kept arguing a point that wasn't brought up.
People who do this can't comprehend a valid argument, and those they make themselves make no sense.
Not to mention, the points she was making were totally stupid.
SPEAKING OF STUPID, here's some more.
I follow a blag of a woman who is usually interesting, if a little too aroused by Jesus. Her grandbabies are cute, and she posts good recipes, but occasionally, she posts some severely retarded shit. Recently, she posted about how girls probably shouldn't keep diaries or journals (on her personal blag, the irony is delicious) because it wasn't teaching them housewifery skills.
(to her credit, she was responding with "probably not but everyone is different" to someone saying no girl, under any circmstance, should have a journal or diary because they don't learn to be good wives and adolescence is so confusing. don't know where the teenager part fits in, but there we go, because apparently comprehending your repressed sexuality, personality and emotions caused by parents viewing you as cattle rather than a daughter is a terrible thing)
I commented sarcastically with "This just in, women not people, do not have feelings". Then what did she do?
Went on a tirade about me being brainwashed by the government and schools.
....what the fuck?
She believes that the government is out to get her and her family. She is dead-set on conspiracies that say that "big pharma" is trying to murder her grandchildren.
Oh, and she believes the Nazi party were communists. Yeah, that explains the berlin wall, lady - it was to separate the communists from the communists!
Firstly, lady, I'm in Australia. I've stated this. The American government does not brainwash their own, let alone Australian students.
Secondly, lady, I went to public schools, but generally everything I learned about the world, and politics, and my beliefs? I learned from my mother. Brb. Calling my mother, because she's the government.
Thirdly, lady, dear god, you're insane. You homeschooled your children and forced them into your beliefs - but that's not brainwashing.
Pure and simple; I fear for you, America.
Party on, Goths - at least, until the communazi Obama comes and takes away your guns and gives people affordable healthcare, God forbid the poor have human rights!
