School Dress Code Says “Put Some Clothes On”

Update to original post: Did anyone see the TIME op-ed piece titled “Schools Are Still Slut-Shaming Girls While Enforcing Dress Code”? It starts off by saying “Another school year, another slut-shaming controversy.” I have to respond by saying NO. No, it isn’t a slut-shaming controversy. TIME, and others in the media are trying to turn a school dress code into Read More →

5 Reasons I Hate the First Day of School

The last few weeks of August I hear parents start talking about how much they are looking forward to their kids going back to school. I understand where they’re coming from; a whole summer of watching kids and hearing them argue, with their demands for immediate attention and constant requests is exhausting. In the summer I can’t even form a complete thought without it being interrupted Read More →

I’m Offended. You Should Be Fired.

When I look around, I see a world full of adults with toddler mentalities. Both believe their needs and wants are top priority, they feel they’re always right and their opinions are all that matter. These people go around acting like close minded, entitled, self-absorbed, arrogant brats. It’s getting worse, and honestly, I’m realizing liberals are every bit as guilty Read More →

George Will: The “Sexual Assault is a Coveted Status” Douchebag

I haven’t done a Douchebag Of the Week Award (DOWA) post for so long, I’ve almost forgotten how it’s done. I see so many douchebags these days, it’s hard for one to rise above the rest. One was finally brought to my attention. George Will takes his douchebaggery to a higher level. George Will is an opinion writer for the Read More →

Cut the Apron Strings: The Doctor Needs 5 Minutes Alone With Your Teen

After talking with a few people, I realize I may be in the minority here. Sometimes a doctor or nurse has your child’s best interest in mind and helicopter parents need to back off and let the professionals do what they are trained to do. A doctor talking with a teenager alone may be in everyone’s best interest. There is Read More →

Open Your Eyes – It’s Called Equal Rights

We have a long way to go with equal rights. My third grader brought home a study guide for social studies that had the term “civil right” on it. It’s definition was “rights that people have simply because they are citizens.” As a country, we’ve come a long way. Many of us are lulled into a sense of “things are Read More →

Foot Ashore, Pay to Pee, and Other Crazy Shit

I wanted to call this “the second installment of what the fuck is wrong with people.” Instead, I think it’s more about crazy shit happening all around us. Here are a few highlights that I don’t think you’ll want to miss. First up with crazy shit is the city council of Pikeville, Tennessee. They’ve said if you are wearing saggy Read More →

Are People Responsible For Their Thoughts, Actions, or Neither?

There are a number of things I don’t think of too often. What people wear is one of them. How they have their hair is another. Basically, if it’s style related, I’m not thinking of it. It’s just not “my thing.” Yesterday I found this account from a 17 year old girl who was kicked out of prom because her Read More →

The Internet Holds Us Accountable. We’re Out of Luck.

Everything we do and say is easily searchable on the internet and may be held against us in the future. Yet, we seem to be surprised, or even upset, when hear that someone is denied opportunity, loses a promotion, or even loses their job, based on something they said or did in in the past. Or, maybe we aren’t surprised. Read More →

Facebook and Other Social Media: Love It? Over It?

I have some questions. I need some feedback. I’m sharing some info. I’m sure by now everyone is tired of hearing me bitch about Facebook. Remember when they won the Douchebag Of the Week Award? It was only the second time I’d ever handed out that award, and they were so deserving. They are even more deserving now. Facebook has Read More →
