White Americans love freedom until it is exercised in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable. Your shirt being a prime example. Or minorities open carrying. Or minorities kneeling during a national anthem. Or flag burning. When these things happen, the "stop being so PC and offended all the time!" crowd becomes the ones taking grievous offense, often comparing the behaviors that threaten their ironically delicate sensibilities to treason.
Trying to define women based on their breasts is extremely offensive and typical of the myopic sexist patriarchy that dominates the media. I am formally requesting that this article be removed or at the very least include a trigger warning posted at the top.
Tim Scott condones sexual assault. Henry McMaster condones sexual assault. Joe Wilson condones sexual assault. And if you support them or Trump, you condone sexual assault too. This has transcended partisan politics. A vote for Trump is a vote against decency, morality and humanity.
"While the string of labels becomes its own parody, it's indicative of our life in the information age."
Funny you mention the information age, which is growing every day thanks to the ubiquity of smartphones, laptops, and worldwide internet access, something we have all been convinced we need.
I always enjoy when people pat themselves on the back for eating local and then post an Instagram of eating said local food. The Instagram of course posted from a smartphone that was made by foreign child labor, or by adults in such shitty working conditions the companies have to put up nets to keep them from jumping off the roofs. Good times. But hey, eat local! You're saving the world!
"You fall to your knees asking the heavens what you did to deserve this torture?"
What you did was park where you weren't supposed to, or longer than you were supposed to. It's not a huge mystery.
Your recent columns have made some good points, but your "why me?!?!" attitude combined with your condescension is insufferable.
