F Stu

I opposed the Hong Kong handover at the time, when anyone who did so was a “Western colonizer.” But it was always obvious this would happen and now it’s happening.

People are fucking stupid.

Amuse-bouche

It’s funny watching libs tear themselves up over the notion that eating “foreign” food is cultural appropriation vs. the also-liberal tendency to venerate the exoticism.

Amusing to observe.

How It’s Her

AITA for shredding my fiancé’s prom picture?

People are saying this is fake, but there are people like this out there. I know because I dated at least one! I’m not much of a sentimentalist, but I had some army mementoes that I liked. My girlfriend at the time threw them all away — even knowing I wanted them — because she said they were “holding me back” and “it’s just old junk.”

The “old junk” was a 105mm Howitzer casing I’d fired myself, my maroon beret that I wore through thick and thin, and some medals. I didn’t really care about the medals but the other stuff I was pissed about.

In hindsight, I should’ve broke up with her then and there.

Libverse

The “liberal” idea of diversity is people of different skin colors who otherwise act, look and think exactly the same way.

Very limiting.

Wrongy Wrong

That Joe Biden would not be the Democratic nominee.

Then again, I am almost always wrong about politics.

Told Ye Told Ye

The Long, Unhappy History of Working From Home. As the coronavirus keeps spreading, employers are convinced remote work has a bright future. Decades of setbacks suggest otherwise.

I told you the MBAs were going to push back against working from home, and hard. This is only the first shot in the propaganda campaign to come.

Within two years, most of the “work from home” gains will be reversed. Sooner if there is a vaccine before that time.

Mask Care Uh

No, the biggest mistake was spending two months lying about the efficacy of masks, saying that they didn’t work, all the while many “progressives” claimed wearing a mask and social distancing was racism.

This was the root of the problem.

Ulterior

Was talking with a friend of mine about another no-win bind for men.

If you help a woman out with anything, you’re assumed to have ulterior motives, no matter your actual reasons or that you happen to be a decent person. However, if you don’t help a woman, you’re then deemed a cold and uncaring bastard.

Of course, women have tons of no-win binds, too! I’m not saying they don’t. But these no-win situations for men aren’t often discussed.

There’s been more than few times I’ve not helped a woman when I could have because I didn’t want her or anyone to question my motives.
