fireez: (Les Mis - Enjolras gun)
This is a crosspost from my tumblr. I want to keep it because reasons.

Background for those interested: there's a huuuuuge wankfest/shipwar going on because some people dare ship Enjolras with Eponine. Now this is a total crack pairing, but hey, whatever floats your ship, right? Only that some angry SJWankers and Enjolras/Grantaire shippers took this as an opportunity to cry out "omg queer erasure!!!". I think you all know my opinion on that kind of thing. But yeah. Getting all worked up about "how dare you take this canonically queer character away from us". Which btw is not true because HUGO SAYS NOTHING ABOUT ENJOLRAS' SEXUALITY OK? Not. one. word. Besides "he don't have time for that shit, he busy with revolution".

And now for my post, which explains why this makes me SO. FUCKING. ANGRY.

My two cents on the whole  )

LaPierre touched very briefly on mental illness, which has been been more widely discussed in the wake of the Connecticut tragedy than after other mass shootings. "Our society is populated by an unknown number of genuine monsters," he said, calling for the establishment of a "national database of the mentally ill."

Fuck you, Mr. LaPierre. Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you. You know who's a monster? You are. You with your "moar guns!!! Guns are the solution to EVERYTHING!!!". You with your utter lack of common sense, your paranoia and your delusions of grandeur. You privileged little shit. You abelist asshole.

I'm not going to go on a killing spree. Not now, not ever. Most of us horrible, horrible mentally ill people will never do such a thing. We're harmless. We're just not like you, and you know what? That's a good thing. I'd hate to be like you. At least I have compassion. At least I can admit to when I'm wrong. At least I don't try to blame everyone else for a problem I helped create.

I am so sick and tired about all of this "oh we have to help the mentally ill because they are DANGEROUS FREAKS who might kill INNOCENT NORMAL PEOPLE" shit. How about you help us because we're human beings? Because we're suffering? Because you want to increase our quality of life? But no, it's all about the poor, poor normal people who might suffer under our terrible afflictions.
 Next thing you know, they're going to make us wear bells and rattles so that people know we're coming and can get out of the way, just like the lepers during the middle ages.

Edit: and if you still aren't convinced that LaPierre is an offensive piece of shit, have this quote:
"LaPierre also said, “We have a mental health system in this country that has completely and totally collapsed. We have no national database of these lunatics” and complained that de-institutionalization of the mentally ill had put too many dangerous people on the streets of America. “We have a completely cracked mentally ill system that’s got these monsters walking the streets,” LaPierre said."

While you're at it, why don't call for forced sterilization and internment? Or how about killing those "monsters" and "lunatics" before they can do anything dangerous? I mean, it's been done before. By people who, for all intents and purposes, we completely mentally healthy. That didn't keep them from being utterly despicable human beings who thought that just because someone is mentally ill, they're somehow sub-human.

If the members of the NRA really aren't as bad as their reputation, they should be stripping that asshole of his office right now. But I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Taking a break from NaNo to bring you some RAGE.

So I was eating my eggy in a basket and watching TV. And then, the teaser for a new "scripted reality" (you know, the shit they want to sell you as TEH TROOTH but which is in fact doctored like Frankenstein's Monster) program came on.

"Please help me!" - the afternoon entertainment show that deals with such wonderful topics as alcoholism, bullying, eating disorders and depression. Basically, someone has a problem, and they call in an "expert" (and yeah, those scare quotes are entirely approprite) to deal with the problem.

And that is where I lost my shit. Seriously, it's bad enough that we have shit like Supernanny. And now they're turning serious emotional and psychological issues into entertainment.

Let me say that again to make it absolutely clear:
They're turning serious emotional and psychological issues into entertainment

Dear program directors of VOX: Go fuck yourselves. Go play in traffic. Take a long walk off a short pier. FUCK OFF AND DIE.

I guess I'm not just speaking for myself when I say: I am not your entertainment. I am not your freakshow. My very real problems, my suffering and my drama are not yours to take and make a quick buck with.

Jesus tittyfucking Christ, it's not as if we had to deal with enough misinformation and prejudice already. And now they're going to add a new load of bullshit to it by making it look as if trauma can be healed in an hour. As if depression is something you can overcome between ad breaks. Oh, sure, somewhere in there they are going to mention that it took weeks. Maybe they'll even mention that it needs constant vigilance and work. But you know what, that is NOT what people will hear. They will hear "oh, these things can be treated and made to go away in no time at all! Just call in some wannabe TV expert and all your problems will be solved!"

It's arleady hard enough to make "normals" realize just how difficult it is for us crazies. It's hard enough to make people see that this isn't something you can just wish away with a bit of positive thinking and healthy eating.

And they're so-called "expert" isn't even a trained psychiatrist.

So thanks, you fuckers. Thanks for making my life even more difficult than it has to be. I don't believe in hell, but I still hope you rot in it.

I seem to be in rant mode. Anyway, this is another one about animal welfare. Or rather, this is a rant about the pox that blights the movement, also known as PETA. Who would be more aptly named "PBID", as in People Being Insensitive Dickfaces.

So PETA have a new ad for going vegan. I'll give you the link, but I'll put a trigger warning on it, because it is triggering for rape and domestic abuse. Yeah, they went there. They used rape and domestic abuse to further their agenda of veganism. And not in a sensitive way, but then, this is PETA, the people famous for comparing Concentration Camps to chicken farms.

Seriously, what is wrong with these people? They're like the 4chan of the animal welfare world. They're a bunch of dudebros who seem to care less about actually accomplishing something and more about being all edgy and shocking. They seem to think that this is lulzy. Newsflash, it's not. Domestic abuse is not something you throw into your ad about going vegan because you think it's fucking funny. "Hurhur he's such a stud he banged her hard enough she has to wear a neck brace".


And I don't care if theirs is a "noble cause". Intent is not magic. Being a champion for animal rights does not make it OK to use the daily suffering of hundreds of women for your own agenda.

Dear PETA:

...and here's the ad.
