Ask me about how people having a bad reaction to MSG makes them racist, because I've never heard of gluten sensitivity

it wasn't clear to me from the context, but i'm admittedly stupid! still don't think whether we were allowed to be open about our queerness on SA or not has any relevance whatsoever to whether the term was used in queer culture before it made it to childfree forums (it was, it was used among queers at least as early as the 1970s, although it was surely also used among straights before that as well) but again, i'm admittedly stupid!

I was putting it into SA history context, just remembering the forums when I first signed up, Goons were calling trashy people Breeders before gay goons could post without being called a fag. I'm not in any way trying to call out SA forums in general, it was the zeitgeist at the time, and as a gay man who posted here during those days I realise this and don't harbor any butthurt feelings.

I just wanted to point out that the term Breeder was a derogatory term that used to mean trashy people who couldn't control their kids long before queer people started using it

1 BQ

After Ellen came out, we moved into 1 AE. Interestingly side note, most people think AE means After Ellen, but it actually is Latin for Anno Esse, which means Year of existing, or being.

At that point you should just cut out the middleman, drop all taxes, and give your dollars to the megacorp or charitable trust who promises to trickle it down to your preferred interests.

At the same time though, I think it's kinda a bad look for PopeHat to use twitter as a place to vent about his kids. Complaining about your kids/pets/things whose behavior is your responsibility seems like a bit of a self-own.

I mean... don't corporations do this all the time?

Is there a secret tax hack where I can make deductible donations in lieu of tax withholding and basically fund like the Post Office and libraries and schools and tell the military to suck poo poo?

Prices being high show that the market is being underserved, therefore we need to remove all possible barriers to entry. Monopolies can only exist because government regulations prevent any random dickhead off the street from competing.

What, some people don't have the resources to compete? That's also government fault, probably.

I mean, who are we referring to doing the exaggerating? The person who thought that a tongue-in-cheek complaint about one's kid putting the dishes in the wrong place was equal to saying one hates their kid and never wanted them in the first place? Because they seemed to believe what they were saying.
