If you mistook my lack of Dumbassness posts for lack of dumbassness in general, you should know better. This is still America:
- Kameron Slade, a kick ass 5th grader at PS195 in Queens, NY was banned from giving a schoolwide speech in support of gay marriage. Showing tolerance? Tsk, tsk. Shame on you. Good thing non-douchebag forces intervened and he was still allowed to give it.
- The 2012 London Olympic Games has taken upon themselves to become the new Femininity Police; and they’re on the lookout for female athletes who don’t fit the traditional, hetero-normative definition of femininity. Too much muscle mass? No makeup?Perspiration? Clink, clink. You’re sentenced to creepy hormone therapy.
- Batshit homophobe Bryan Fischer justifies the anti-gay Boy Scout ban by comparing gays and lesbians to Jerry Sandusky who will inevitably prey on your children. Real shit.
- Anne-Marie Slaughter wrote a bullshit article, “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All”, which in mainstream means, Silly Girls, Feminism Lied To You, You Can’t Have A Fulfilling Career And Personal Life At The Same Time, Just Give Up And Get Back In The Kitchen. Read it. Or don’t, either way you’re not missing anything.
- 21 year old soon-to-be-Harvard-grad-student, Jonathan Well, a black man, was literally thrown out of a North Carolina bar and grill by its manager because apparently no one reminded them that it’s not 1953, and Jim Crow is over.
- White teacher in Inglewood, California told a black student to sit her “nappy-headed self down” because she was apparently “out of control”. Who knew Don Imus had a sister?
Uncle TomJesse Lee Peterson says if it were up to him, he’d never hire anyone with a “black-sounding name” because he already knows they “hate white people.” Yeah, Jesse, at birth we totally articulated our future aversion to white people to our parents and we kinda went from there.
- White nationalist neo-nazis are planning to lobby the capitol to “take back” the American white supremacy that already exists. They’d also like to add that Obama is a Kenyan Anti-Christ.
