Movember

Posted on Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

Dave!As this is November 1st, it's time for MOVEMBER, when a lot of guys will be trying to raise money for prostate cancer research and other men's health issues. They will do this by asking people to sponsor them as they valiantly use their ability to grow facial hair for the betterment of all mankind.

Since I am already sporting facial hair out of sheer laziness, I've decided to have Lil' Dave take up the challenge, and I'll post his progress throughout the month...

DAVETOON: Lil' Dave Movember Progress DAY 1

   
But, since cartoon characters can't enter the fundraising bid, I'm asking that you please sponsor everybody's favorite sometimes-inappropriate dad blogger... Michael "The Muskrat"...

And then...

So I wouldn't have to drive home, then turn around and drive all the way back to Seattle for work today, I crashed at my sister's house last night. And while I did shave an hour off my commute, I still had to battle Seattle's horrendous traffic this morning. This meant over an hour in my car listening to the radio.

Big discussion of the day? Kim Kardashian deciding to get a divorce after 72 days of marriage...

Kardashian OK! Magazine Cover

Now, I fully admit that I don't know much about this woman. Probably because I don't give a flying fuck about the idiotic "reality television" garbage that's taking a shit all over my television. All I know is that her and her sister get paid millions of dollars to act like morons on TV, and Kim Kardashian got paid millions more for some kind of two-part "Wedding Special" that aired on the E! Network.

Then, a little over two months later, she decides that she doesn't want to be married after all. I'm assuming she gets to keep all the money from her "TV Special." I'm also assuming that this crap will guarantee that her reality show gets picked up for another season so she can whore out her divorce for even more millions.

Well, more power to her, I say. If people are so fucking stupid that they want to watch this shit on their televisions, then you go, girl. Get yourself paid. I have no problem with Kim Kardashian exploiting her excessive messed-up "life" for profit.

But what had me screaming my head off at the radio as I was driving down I-5 is how this "One Man, One Woman Union"... despite being a complete sham and a cash-grab... is considered the "only acceptable form of marriage" by hate groups like The National Organization for Marriage. Whereas a committed gay couple wanting to get married is not.

In all seriousness, I am sick to death of this stupid shit.

All these assholes who have nothing better to do than crap all over other people's happiness by dictating whether two consenting adults can or cannot get married in a country founded on freedom can just go fuck themselves. Sideways. Then die.

Nonsensical stuff like this gets me so angry I can barely see straight. I spent most of my morning in an absolute rage. While I was working I was composing a blog entry in my head... ranting endlessly about how full of crap people like Maggie Gallagher and Rick "Piece of Shit" Santorum are for their hypocritical lunacy. It was going to be my most profanity-laden, explosive blog post ever.

But then I checked my Twitter feed while on a break and saw that somebody had re-tweeted this gem from Star Trek's Lt. Sulu, George Takei...

Kim Kardashian files for divorce after 72 days. Another example of how same-sex marriage is destroying the sanctity of the very institution.

Exactly.

EXACTLY! Thank you Mr. Takei.

So-called "traditional marriage" between a man and a woman has been doing a great job of fucking up things for decades all by themselves. With a skyrocketing divorce rate now exceeding 50%, blaming the gays for ruining things is about the stupidest fucking thing I've ever heard.

Which makes sense, because the people cramming this bullshit down our throats are about the stupidest fucking people I've ever heard.

Here's hoping they all die out real soon now so the rest of us can move on.

    Thank you for exposing me to more fame-whore exposure. I did my best to skip over that bit.

    Since I’m still trying to find work, I’m not going to grow out my beard. I’m also having too much fun with my new razor.

    Prostrate checks are important though…..

  2. Jake Titus says:

    Oh how I have missed our wit!

  3. I posted about that as well. Roller derby has many LGBT folks who participate because we don’t care who or what you are, we just want to skate and I cannot tell you how many couples I have met who have such a beautiful, supportive relationships with each other, yet garbage like Kimmy are allowed more rights than they are!

    WAKE UP PEOPLE! STOP BEING SHEEP!

  4. the muskrat says:

    Thanks so much for the support!

    And, I agree re: the marriage thing. I’m also sickened by what she spent on a wedding, given all the permanent good that cash could’ve done instead.

  5. I do my part for facial hair growth 365 days a year so I guess I’m supporting Movember in my own way. Are we allowed to trim or do we have to go the whole month without?

    And who the hell is Kim Kardashian anyway? I see her name/face on magazines in the grocery store but have absolutely no idea what she’s famous for. #liveinacavethesedays

    I saw that tweet from Mr. Takei (and similarly worded from others) and it got me into a blood boil about how hypocritical these anti SSM people are. They will support sham marriages like this, yet committed gay couples that have been together for years get left out.

    I grew up thinking marriage was supposed to be about love. Obviously, it’s about a reality TV show and how much cash can be made. Traditional marriage indeed.
