By Gabe Delahaye / September 14, 2012 - 5:30 pm

A Monsters’ Ball from the sky? Well now I have seen everything! Seriously, though, the sky is crazy, you guys. It’s soooo high up. And other fascinating observations. Hey, good week, everyone. Let’s make it a great weekend. Have some fun for once in your life! Maybe you’ll meet someone new! Also: The Master! Whatever you do, whether it be meet someone new or see The Master, be safe out there. Amanda Bynes is on a murder spree! Do NOT invite her to your party or ask her for a ride to someone else’s party. XOXOX. #sky

“Feminist” implies they’ll be written by chicks, which makes the “terrible” qualifier redundant.

By celebrities who “put their children out there,” does she mean celebrities who go out in public with their children, as opposed to the sensible, good parents who just keep them locked in the house at all times?

I don’t think you can judge how much someone else has suffered until you’ve been in their shoes. Way harsh, Tai. I dated a guy in high school whose dad was transgender. His friends all “teased” him about it so much that he dropped out of school and did a shit ton of drugs and basically ruined his life. They’re all still friends and to this day they don’t think they were out of line. He was good looking, white, middle class. Jut because it’s not affecting you personally does not mean it is not affecting someone very, very deeply. I see this attitude a lot from Gabe, and not to get all Mom on you, but I find it very disappointing.

Posted in: Enough With The Bullying Stuff

[Ed. Note: Well, now, hold on a second. The counter-argument to "we need to stop indulging a culture of victimization" is not simply "but I know a guy who was unfairly victimized." There are lots of examples of people who have genuinely suffered at the hands of others, and that's always bad. Obviously. No one is saying different? And under absolutely no circumstances could you interpret my position on the current "bullying" trend with "therefore people who struggle with transgendered fathers should shut up because who cares." We are not talking about a case by case basis. I'm sure your friend had a particularly tough time, and I am sorry he had to go through that! Come on! But so if I do need to clarify, my point is NOT that people shouldn't seek help if they feel socially ostracized or emotionally abused. Everyone should get some comfort in this world. But they don't need the entire world to rush to their defense and hold them on their shoulders as some kind of folk hero. Cry to your mommy, and then dry your tears and hit the field again. We are in the middle of the big game and there is no crying in lifeball. I do appreciate the engaged feedback, though. Always!]
