People I have difficulty taking seriously
Posted by That Other Mike on 03/02/2008
I have difficulty taking any subsequent opinions seriously if I see any of the following; it just taints whatever else that person has to say, no matter how sensible it might be in isolation. To put it another way, if your brain can accommodate any of this stuff, it’s probably not firing on all cylinders to start with.
Anyone who uses wimmin, womon, womyn etc.. You’re not making a feminist statement, you’re showcasing your ignorance about the English language.
Anyone advocating homeopathy. At all. It’s water, you dumbass.
Most RadFems. It didn’t seem that impressive when Marxists used your theory first, and recycling it through a puritan and misandric filter doesn’t make it any better. See also using “The Patriarchy”. If you use this in any seriousness, rhetoric is not your friend.
Wiccans. No need to explain, but what the hell – someone made it up less than a hundred years ago. You are not the last vestiges of a pan-European nature worship religion.
Creationists, just because anyone in the West who isn’t a little educated in science in this day and age has to be actively trying to be ignorant.
16th Amendment conspiracy theorists. Just pay your taxes already, you whiny little brats.
Rabid supporters of certain politicians: Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul (yes, we know, the evol in revolution spells love backwards; we didn’t think it was impressive enough a fact to mention it), Tom Tancredo and Zell Miller.
That’s all for now. There will be more.
