At first I was mostly agreeing with this, until I made it to this part.
I woke up yesterday morning to a few Facebook status updates from people who don’t like Halloween, and who would never let their kids participate in the evils of trick-or-treating. I was immediately filled with guilt because I allowed my daughter to enjoy herself so much the previous night by letting her dress up in her self-chosen mermaid/fairy combination.
When you care at all about what some fucktards on Facebook think about something that made your daughter happy, you have lost the path of wisdom.
I think the author realizes this, hence his (apparent) decision to stop using Facebook, but still – this idea would never, ever occur to me, to even care.
You humans are weird.
