#1095: “The Exhausting Gauntlet of Dudes Who Won’t Stop Hitting On Me”

These deal with people who just have personal tastes or preferences which get skewered by the mainstream. Even a brief perusal of this list will show that most of these targets are “extremes” — people who are beyond the mainstream middle in some way or another. For examples, Vegetarians, and the Vegephobes, are both on this list. Humans apparently don’t like it when you go too far one way or another Some of the most typical targets: It still seems acceptable to make fun of somebody if their preferred hobbies aren’t “cool” enough.
Seems to be diminishing for “computer” nerds as of late. If you can make a video game people are impressed now, not repulsed. Everyone else with a “tech” hobby is still out of luck. This has to do with a social change. Before, everyone who had a computer knew how to program or at least had a programming book at home, and programs were too simplistic to be interesting for the public. As people who knew how to program for a computer became scarcer and programs became complex enough to manage public interests, more people feel the need to actively seek them out.
Receiving even worse luck are people who are fond of anything Japan-related that is, if they’re not Japanese, or don’t even look it.

How divorce can spark self-discovery and happiness for women
Prior to our meeting, I had mentioned that I had some news to share. I knew exactly what they were thinking, as I spoke about my newfound love interest, and him bussing the file that he had a kid. Alas, I admit, those were my exact words, but those words were also spoken by a much younger and not so much wiser version of myself. It very well depends on the man, and how serious he is about getting into a committed relationship.
But getting to know him is what matters, right?
I look around and about at people talking about same-sex marriage, and it seems that everyone is accepting the discussion on the marriage bigots’ terms, rather than reality. Come on people, let’s get a grip: Same-sex marriage already exists in the United States. It has for two years. The definition of marriage in the US already includes members of the same sex marrying each other. By pressing for a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between men and women, it is the marriage bigots who are looking to change the definition of marriage.
The language of the proposed constitutional amendment would end thousands of legal marriages — both the same marriages that legally exist now and all the same-sex marriages that would occur between now and whenever the theoretical moment would be that the 37th state ratified the amendment. The proposed constitutional amendment would make second-class citizens of all same-sex married couples by stripping them of a marital status they currently enjoy, while allowing all other legally married couples to continue being married.
Why aren’t people hammering the marriage bigots with this? There’s a manifest difference in a debate which has as its founding proposition that same-sex marriage is a theoretical construct in the US — which is the proposition marriage bigots want to promote — and the debate which has as its founding proposition that same-sex marriages are already here, and there thousands of them.
The latter forces the marriage bigots to come out and admit that their proposed amendment and their goals destroy real marriages between real people — thousands of marriages between thousands of people.
