Friday's Forgettable Five #5


1. Richard Dawkins spreading his superior man logic around Twitter.


WHO ARE YOU FIGHTING AGAINST, DAWKINS? Are you upset that other people are upset about date rape? My favorite part is the implication a person isn't rational if they don't agree. If you think that's a good argument, go away and learn how to argue. (See what I did there, Richie?) The problem here is that it quantifies rape based on one guy's perception of what's worse. Actually, friend, you have no idea how a person will react to being raped and it's pretty terrible to essentially tell a person who's been date-raped, "well HEY at least you weren't raped at knifepoint!"

Also, uh, date rape is far more common than stranger rape. It's kind of a problem and yet it's not taken nearly as seriously. Tweets like this? They don't help. You know what date rape means? It means you were raped by someone you know. That's traumatizing. Why are we trying to minimize that?

2. That another celebrity attempted to punch Justin Bieber. And missed. Seriously, Orlando? I mean, kudos. Here's something to ponder: I wonder if Justin Bieber feels any shame that the entire world thinks he a silly, little, entitled shit or if he's so insulated by yes-people that he doesn't even get it. Would he still be a little shit if he didn't grow up as a celebrity? QUESTIONS.

3. Hilary Duff released a new song. About fucking time, Hilary.


I guess I missed that point in her life when she was an office drone. Just kidding, Hilary. Don't take this as an insult. I still listen to So Yesterday.

4. That Fox News pawn who called Bachelorette Andi a slut for sleeping with more than one castmate. Wait all those crazy kids have sex in the fantasy suite? My thesis on how you can find true love on The Bachelor(ette) has been totally blown. I will never again be able to watch this show knowing it's a fuckfest.

5. Seeing yet another celebrity post a vacation picture of themselves drinking out of a goddamned hollowed fruit and knowing if I wanted to do the same thing, I'd have to go buy a pineapple, scoop out all if it's insides and then go spend $50 more on the alcohol mix that needs to go inside.

  1. Is that you feeding chippies? The only way that photo could be better is if you were in a Snow White costume. I used to think Dawkins was really cool back in the day, and then I realized he was just a superior man logic spreader. I love when people post nonsense tweets just to see how many favorites they get. Also, when my boyfriend and I were in Thailand, his dream was to drink something out of a coconut. This dream proved harder to realize than we had expected since it happened only once, and he thought it tasted crappy anyway. So don't feel too bad.

  2. Hahah, yes that is me. I only wish I were wearing a Snow White costume too. The chipmunks were so absurdly cute. Also, that makes me feel way better. I don't even like coconut that much, but drinking out of one just seems like THE THING to do during the summer.

  3. I can't believe I have yet to list to Hil's new song. "Come Clean" was my JAM back in the day!

  4. Come Clean is still my jam. Right after Wake Up. I guess Chasing the Sun is like the 2.0 version of that Sheryl Crow song about the sun.
