Dealing With Other People’s Mental Issues

There’s either an elephant in the room or there isn’t. You’re going to do something about it or you aren’t.

Everyone has their proverbial crosses to bear.

One of mine is that I wish society would improve while *ALL* of the data indicates it will only get worse.

That’s why I write articles like this, so that hopefully somebody will find a better way to deal with people and improve their lives.

I don’t write it for myself because by the time I write it I already know it. Continue reading “Dealing With Other People’s Mental Issues”

Loser Society: Why The Truth Sounds Like Misogyny To You

Suppression of honest communication leaves you with a life of deceit.
Don’t chastise people for telling you the truth now and then cry about them lying to you later.

As a chick I’ve known for around a decade introduced me IRL to another chick I was meeting for the first time in life, in the process of attempting to explain who I am, the term “misogynistic” arrived in a sentence. Something to the effect of “I felt like sometimes what he says is misogynistic…”

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misogyny

Misogyny (/mɪˈsɒdʒɪni/) is the hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women or girls. Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including social exclusion, sex discrimination, hostility, androcentrism, patriarchy, male privilege, belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification.[1][2] Misogyny can occasionally be found within sacred texts of religions and mythologies, and various influential Western philosophers and thinkers have been described as misogynistic.[1][3]

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_objectification

Sexual objectification is the act of treating a person as an instrument of sexual pleasure. Objectification more broadly means treating a person as a commodity or an object without regard to their personality or dignity. Objectification is most commonly examined at the level of a society, but can also refer to the behavior of individuals.

Now, First of all, I’m glad she said that. 🙂 Continue reading “Loser Society: Why The Truth Sounds Like Misogyny To You”

Verily… A Conversation Betwixt Herbs

Let’s examine and discuss the Trump/Bush Tape.

Herbs

A Herb is a worthless dude, in the context of whatever you’re talking about.

A nobody. A non-player character (NPC) like the artificial intelligence people you see running around in video games that the game itself is controlling instead of a human. A totally inconsequential and ineffective male of the species.

So for example, if you’re pitching in a baseball game and the bases are loaded and the dude walking towards the plate to bat can’t hit worth a damn, you won’t be worried about it because he’s a Herb.

That doesn’t mean he isn’t well-paid, well-regarded in society, or successful in business.

It just means that in this context, attempting to hit against your pitching, he isn’t worth ****.

Similarly, dudes tell on themselves that THEY aren’t **** when it comes to bagging chicks.

I would have written “pulling chicks”, but Trump ****** that line up for ERRBODY with his “Grab ’em by the *****” statement, but we’ll discuss that later in the story. 😀 Continue reading “Verily… A Conversation Betwixt Herbs”

Less Than Zero

Are you going to allow other people to drag you down with them, or are you going to cut them loose to lose on their own?

The movie “Less Than Zero” is about three drug addicts.

All treea dem, Clay, Blair, and Julian graduated high school together.

Clay left for college while Blair & Julian stayed at home.

Before he left, Blair was Clay’s girlfriend. After he left, Blair was Julian’s girlfriend.

Clay (apparently) stopped using drugs altogether. Blair & Julian increased their cocaine consumption.

When Clay returns to town during the Christmas holiday break, he has two problems.

His best friend Julian is a junkie.

His girlfriend, who’s now screwing his best friend, wants Clay to help Julian.

Who Are You?

The reason I wanted to discuss this movie is because there are a lot of people who spend all of their time trying to get back *UP* to zero. Continue reading “Less Than Zero”

Women Without Makeup

A chick not wearing makeup can’t provoke anyone to do anything.

So HuffPo recently posted an article about Alicia Keys not wearing makeup to the VMAs (The MTV Video Music Awards), entitled “The Anger Provoked By Alicia Keys Not Wearing Makeup To The VMAs Is Sadly Not Surprising”.

The only reason I even clicked on this article was because of the words “Anger Provoked”.

First of all, Provoke (merriam-webster.com/dictionary/provoke) means to cause the occurrence of (a feeling or action) : to make (something) happen : to cause (a person or animal) to become angry, violent, etc.

So, for instance, if I punch you in your face, that means I’ve provoked you to feel hurt and/or to fall on the floor.

My action (smashing your grill) caused your reaction (feeling emotional or physical pain and/or losing the ability to continue to stand up).

Trumpesque Dating Techniques

How to apply techniques utilized in Presidential campaigns to increase the success of your dating career.

Now that I’ve become aware that you can’t be disqualified for attempting to become the President of the United States of America due to mental deficiency or illness, I think I’ll try some similar dating techniques that definitely shouldn’t work, but apparently approximately 50% of the women in this country might fall for them anyway.

Conversation Styles

Her: “Where were you born? :D”
Me: “In a crossfire hurricane…… And I howled at my Ma in the driving rain……… But it’s alright now. In fact it’s a gas. :D”
Her: “That’s so fascinating! :D” Continue reading “Trumpesque Dating Techniques”

I’m A New Yorker.. And I Know A Con When I See One

Sometimes, you can help people to see reality clearly so they don’t fall for the okey-doke. Other times, not so much.

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg (And my former boss when I used to work for Bloomberg Television) was addressing the Democratic National Convention last night when he said:

“I’m a New Yorker.. And I know a CON when I see one.”

HAHAHAHA oh man! 😀

I try to explain things like this to internet people, but they just don’t get it because they don’t have enough life experience.

Here in NYC, we walk a lot. We use mass transportation a lot. We have a lot of encounters with actual human beings from when we’re kids all the way up.

This gives us a different understanding of life, people, and possibilities from the person sitting in a basement in Arkansas typing on the internet about things he or she has never actually experienced ever in life.

At the same time.. It isn’t my job to explain to the naive masses how I know a certain person is a fraud, fake, or con man.

My job is to interact with the fraud as exactly who he or she is, and not as the uninformed public perceive them to be. Continue reading “I’m A New Yorker.. And I Know A Con When I See One”

Stop. Letting. *IDIOTS*. Represent. You.

If you continue to let idiots, dregs of humanity, and lowlives speak for you, don’t complain when you get what you deserve because people believe you’re affiliated with them.

Here’s how the internet works… Some event occurs and 100 people post about the exact same thing, along with their two-cent-worth commentary about it.

Have you ever watched a football game IRL (in real life), with actual human beings that were in the same room you were in?

If not, skip to the next section. < *DING*>

If you have.. When a touchdown is scored, people simultaneously cheer or boo = react.

On the internet, when something occurs, people react to it after a) the event occurs, b) they find out about it, and c) they get a chance to upload their thought(s) to social media.

This means that you will have someone cheering for a touchdown that occurred on Sunday, but it will already be Tuesday.

Meanwhile, people cheered ALL OF SUNDAY and ALL OF MONDAY already. 😀

It’s only on rare occasions that any of these people are EXPERTS in what they’re talking about.

Most of the time, they’re just human beings with feelings and a smartphone.

What happens next is worse, though…

The comment section. Continue reading “Stop. Letting. *IDIOTS*. Represent. You.”

re: Authenticity

Empathy, Compassion, and Kindness are all lovely, so long as nothing important is at stake.

My excellent friend Dina Kaplan wrote an article entitled “Why I’m Over Authenticity: The Intersection of Honesty and Empathy”.

You would have to know more about Dina to appreciate the article the way I do, such as watching this presentation she gave:

Even without background information, the article by itself stands alone and most likely speaks for a lot of people who experienced the same types of things she did.

I’m now going to be as authentic as I can / want to be about some of the sections of her article.

[NOTE: This is my third version of this article, hahaha] Continue reading “re: Authenticity”
