The recent events in London have polarised my facebook freinds list to a level of accuracy that could be considered binary… managed to delete about 8 blatant racists and several ignorant people who have a mindset that exhibits acute collectivism.
I need a facebook cull
I’ve culled 6 people so far like this…
It’s interesting how people take the quote from one of the Woolwich guys saying he mentioned how in his country women are used to seeing that kinda thing [the violence], and quote this and say he should go back to his country if he wants it like that. They don’t realise that he means his country is full of violence at the hands of our soldiers, that happens on their soil in front of civilians and to civilians, whilst we sit healthily and happily at home in peace.
Also, Daily Mail/The Sun articles aren’t and never will be viable sources of information, and unfortunately these people don’t have enough brain cells to realise this, so they will continue to open their mouths and thus lower the IQ’s of everyone surrounding them.
And okay, sure, maybe the biggest issue is that they have no sex education, they don’t know about safe sex, they don’t necessarily know which of the many things they do are the things that make the babies. They need education, and yeah, sure, do you realise how many condoms that will take?
And I could go on ALL DAY LONG about jobs. Interesting fact, in the kitchen I work in, over the past 9 years they’ve had roughly 34 chefs, some of which have worked there years, some months etc. the current head chef has been there for 5 years, she’s Latvian. She’s the best chef they’ve had, we also have a new chef, he’s been here 2 months and he’s better than most other chefs we’ve had (and have), he’s learnt faster, he’s more organised, polite, nice, makes better food etc. and he’s Polish. We’ve had endless people come and go, many getting fired, many have been useless or rude, generally bad attitudes and bad work ethics.
I’ve worked with other Eastern Europeans before, and let me tell you, I have a good work ethic, a very good one, I’m a hard worker, but they’ve all been on par or better than me with it, Di and Szy both say they had strict upbringings, so I think that might be part of it.
But I’m sorry, but it seems to constantly get proven that they’re generally harder workers and will work the jobs our people refuse to work… if they’re more competent for the job, they’re hired.
(I know this was a post you saw, not your post, so sorry for addressing each issue, but it makes me so angry. How are people this stupid?).

Gay Men and Their Not-So-Cute Misogyny Problem
What’s up with all the misogyny, gay dudes? Seriously. I’m not saying you have to be deep-throating a copy of Feminine Mystique while blasting Julie Ruin, but could some of you (emphasis on SOME) not have such thinly-veiled contempt for women?
Maybe you don’t even realize it. You probably don’t. You probably think you’re just being cute when you belittle your best girlfriend’s appearance or call her (jokingly!) a whore, but no, it doesn’t work that way.
As glorious as a friendship between a gay man and a straight girl can be, it also has the tendency to get a little dark. For example, we are all aware of the whole “OMG, GAY BEST FRIEND” epidemic where women fetishize their friendships with homos and treat them like a Pez dispenser of fabulousness rather than, you know, a nuanced human being. What I don’t hear getting talked about as much, though, is when the gay guy treats the girl like shit. When his seemingly harmless taunts turn into something that resembles verbal abuse.
Last year, I was in San Francisco with one of my best girlfriends and her gay friend, whom I had only met once or twice before. We were drinking at some house party, having an A-OK time, when all of a sudden her gay friend starts shouting to her, “You’re a fucking slut. Look at you, you slut whore!”
This, I guess, was supposed to be “sassy” and “cute” but really it just made everyone in the room profoundly uncomfortable. He was drunk, too drunk, and his words felt like daggers. My girlfriend had no idea what to do so she just laughed it off and prayed it would stop.
