Fake, real, whatever. If it happened or even if it HAD happened, anon made the right choice not shooting him dead where he stood. He did a thing which is monstrous beyond measure. He put into the world a ridiculous amount of evil, enough bad karma to choke a busload of Hindus and Buddhists, but the one thing he does not deserve is to have his daughter traumatized in an even more evil fashion right in front of her. That would make this week's anon so much more evil than her rapist, it wouldn't even be funny (hint hint: it never would be funny, not ever).

A rapist is disgusting, always. But a murderer who kills a man holding his daughter makes me want to retch. Good going for not shooting him, or for making up a fairly interesting piece to respond to, anon.

God, I really, really hate to admit it, but the first thing I thought of when I finished this article is that somehow, some way we need to actually incorporate the eventual result of the Eric Cartman troll's idea. Is that just a horrendous, inhumane thought? Yeah, it is, and I'm not glad I'm having it, but I have to ask, I just GOTTA ASK...

WHAT are these people contributing? To ANYTHING? How much trouble are they really worth if they're seriously legitimate menaces to society? What good is it doing us spending millions of dollars on these people?

Now before you start saying that I'm a troll as well, and I know that would sound like the obvious thing to do, I'm in no way saying we should just go "oh, well, guess we're going to just kill them all, they have no worth to society, and clearly, having no worth to society means death," I'm saying that we need to figure out a way, and we need to figure one out NOW, to keep those people who represent significant threats to society, off the streets. I may not advocate death for them, they are human, after all. But I am in no way comfortable with the idea of people with dangerous, violent histories and mental illnesses (that we KNOW about) being out on the streets with little or no monitoring.

And it's true that they're clearly a big budget strain. Now I could give a shit about the taxpayer, we're all hurting and we're going to continue to hurt and we're going to have to get used to that. But I have to wonder how we're going to deal with the dangerously insane, who clearly certainly exist and are existing among us, and that scares the bejeezus out of me, I won't lie. I'm not going to pretend I know what it's like to have a family member or a close friend be batshit insane, so I'm not going to just say "Oh, sure, kill 'em," not by a long shot, that's ridiculous and barely less insane than what we fear these people might do. But then WHAT are we doing with these people?

@111: Depends on the operation. As far as sexual preference goes, in fact my preference is for actually *no* operation, and I have a serious appetite for rather young (very late teens, early-to-mid 20s, still in my age range, really), pretty shy crossdressers. But as far as romance goes, I don't restrict myself to anyone, not even to transgenders, although again, shy, feminine guys and shy, feminine crossdressers especially drive me just up a wall crazy for them.

@112: Well that's your business that you consider them freakish. Congratulations, you live in America, where it is perfectly legal to freak the fuck out about something harmless and dare I say attractive beyond measure (but of course, that's just me). Just do me a favor and don't start pressing your dumbass fear of breaking out of gender norms onto others.

I could be totally wrong on this, and I don't know you, so I'm not at all claiming to speak for you, but it seems to me that it could be very likely that the reason you think of them as freakish is because of people like you who think of them as freakish and pass that on socially. People like to call it a crime against nature or some dumb zealous noise like that. The truth is that there have been footnotes on gender roles in countless civilizations throughout history. Currently, and thankfully, we've got a pendulum swing sort of thing heading back towards more open acceptance of this.

I'm not saying you're an ass for being all "well, it's freakish, penises should be on guys," you go ahead and do that. I'm saying that you have the freedom to do that, so let me have the freedom to think of them as incredible and lovely. I myself and a good number of transgenders and genderqueer individuals I know live under a sort of umbrella fear of the people like you who gain power and then act on their feelings of disgust and revulsion, resulting in things like "morality crimes" and the like. Currently, there isn't really anything for transgenders or transfans such as myself, but there's always that fear.

"Maybe that's this band."

Give me a break. One man is not a band. I don't care what the fuck he wants to call himself. Go ahead, let him change his goddamn real name to Owl City if that's his poison, but that doesn't mean he's suddenly any more a band just because he picked a name. But you know, honestly, it makes perfect sense coming from him that he considers himself a band. Aww, isn't that cute. Junior thinks he can play because he has autotune and a drum machine!

PS as a matter of speaking, though, I do from time to time identify as gay, and yes, I have from time to time been known to be into the very softest, feminine of non-transgender men. So do not ever think that there is an interest in transgenders exclusively because some "straight guy wants just a little bit of cock," it isn't so simple, and to put it in such simple terms degrades both those who love transgenders and I think to a good extent transgenders themselves, and that's never something which should be okay.

I have loved and adored solely male-to-female transgenders and transsexuals for a good few years now. At this point I can't really imagine being with anyone else.

It's honestly a shame that transgenders and transsexuals here consider themselves either one or the other (male or female), or want to be considered that way, and as such see transfans such as myself as being sick or sleazy. I'm not denying that sick and sleazy transfans exist, generally those who are in fact fetishists and do it simply because it's a total fetish, ignoring the humanity of the people they're with in exchange for the chance to bed a dickgirl. But there are other transfans out there, such as myself, who see transgenders as truly and seriously beautiful of their own merit. To me, they're more feminine and lovely than anything, and worthy of just as much love as anyone else, love which I truly want to give them, in a romantic sense, not even necessarily a sexual one. I'd even date a transgender who wasn't at all interested in sex, I really would, simply because it's just everything about them which drives me wild.

As for sexual identity, I identify as neither gay nor straight nor bisexual. Sexuality is such a liquid thing that labeling myself would be a useless gesture. I suppose 'transfan' has to suffice for now.

A final note to transgenders and transsexuals: Please don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. I know there are a lot of sleazy guys out there who would love you and leave you, but that doesn't mean that there aren't guys out there who want to have a serious, loving, tender relationship with you.

From Wikipedia's article on Alzheimers: "As the disease advances, symptoms include confusion, irritability and aggression, mood swings, language breakdown, long-term memory loss, and the general withdrawal of the sufferer as their senses decline."

On the other hand, she's taking up valuable space and resources and using them, whether or not her addled brain knows it or not, to spread lies and slander and then pretend to be a sweet old granny when you're around. Anon, you're right to be pissed. And even her cobweb-filled mind can barely remember the name of that cute pharaoh she used to flirt with back when she did some temp work overseeing the construction of the pyramids, that gives her no room to stab you in the back like that.

Goodnight and good riddance, ya old cunt, and may Jesus and Buddha and Mohammed and all the rest of 'em kick you in the cooter on your way down to hell.

I agree with everything but the end part. Don't tell me you take offense because you don't. Goddamn. Nobody *did* mention God, nobody *did* mention Jesus, and if they did, then they're in a shitfuck of trouble with their employers should you choose to act on what that stick stuffed up your hard, hard rectum is telling you. Fact: taking offense at niceties is sometimes warranted if those niceties are saccharine, forced, or otherwise done by people who are nice and police and then turn around and kick puppies and burn crosses on black people's front lawns. Fact: You have no idea whether or not those people are going to do that. So you taking offense at them is like me taking offense at your taking offense at them, it's just plain dumb.

And I know you aren't offended, because true offense these days is found only slightly less frequently than real unicorns and leprechauns, and that certainly doesn't qualify, so don't water down the term by using it on shit that annoys you rather than offends you.

I would pay good money to see a bunch of kids who are eligible for being on The Real World try to even figure out who Charles Manson is without texting a friend or using the internet. Oh, and they can't eat until they figure it out. I bet every last one of them starves to death.
Sep 1, 2010 a friend commented on What the Hell Happened to Weezer?.
God, I feel sorry for Weezer. Any band with enough talent to put out stuff like Say It Ain't So (which blew my fucking mind so much that for months after finding it I played it daily, it's still just such a damn good song) can fall so low as to make Pork & Beans. I was expecting to be pissed at the author for this one, but Grandy hits the nail on the head. Now it's more of a coin toss between Weezer and the Dandy Warhols for Sunday night.
