Anonymous Questions And The United Simpleminded Douchebag Liberation Front
Hi there people. If you’re not following me on Twitter or keeping up with the latest absurdities in the mommyblogosphere, you might be unaware of the fact that I’ve been in a foul mood for the past day and a half due to some really stupid stuff that is so stupid that I’m not going to even waste any stupid pixels here talking about why it is so stupid (did I mention how fucking stupid it all is yet?). But if you want, you can read Metalia’s decidedly unstupid post about it, though you might want to skip some of the comments because in between intelligent thought from the usual suspects is — you guessed it — more stupidity.
Why am I linking to it? Because it’s been suggested to me in the past day that to not link to whomever I’m talking about or mocking is hypocritical, when I blasted people for doing this to me in the above stupidity. Fair enough. I’m not sure that I agree that satire needs to be explained ad nauseum with links. In fact, I think that might kind of ruin the humor, but in any case this is not a satirical post, it’s just a monumentally annoyed post, because the fact I am even mentioning any of this here means I haven’t let any of this go yet, and therefore have not moved on. Which is even more annoying.
The only good thing to come from the past day for me, internet-wise, was the coining of the term “United Simpleminded Douchebag Liberation Front,” to describe how certain people are behaving at present. I’m looking into having t-shirts printed up for BlogHer 2010.
Why would this particular internet dust-up annoy me so much, when there have been worse and more prolific ones, even in recent memory? I suppose because, mostly, I cannot understand where it is coming from. I don’t like things that defy explanation, and this one does. Even in the midst of being called a taint-face, I could sort of recognize the logic — flawed and short-sighted as it might have been — behind the rage. In this case, there must be a lot going on behind the scenes that I don’t know about or else, I don’t know what.
See? Do you see how annoying this is?
Anyway, I also wanted to let you know, those of you who haven’t found it already, about my Formspring page, where you can ask me questions anonymously. And there’s a whole backlog of stuff there, complete with all of my typos, for you to peruse during the time you would ordinarily be reading a post here. Because, today, this is apparently all I’ve got.
