Alright everyone I’m sorry it took so long for me to hammer this entry out. Not that anyone cares… but… yeah. You know the drill! Share what you like, shut up about what you don’t (actually I’ll take any feedback at this point) and don’t be afraid to speak your mind! So without any further ado, I present to you the dumbest update so far.
First off, I’d like to address a recent upswing in stupidity in the parenting community. Some of you may not be aware of this but there has been a huge increase in parents allowing their children to undergo a specific type of surgery. Not plastic surgery to enhance their cheeks or some surgery to make them taller. No no no, these are all too tame for these pioneers of adolescent rights. They’re advocates and practitioners of GENDER REASSIGNMENT SURGERY!! What. The. Hell. Ok, as a psychology major I feel like I need to hold my personal opinion about this type of surgery back. I won’t argue for or against it, but who the hell let these “parents” reproduce? In the immortal words of Brad Paisley “at 17, it’s hard to see past Friday night.” As a psychology major, I can speak to the mental and emotional development of these children. It’s commonly accepted among almost EVERY SINGLE PSYCHOLOGIST that children do not have long-term planning skills until at least 17 years of age with some taking as long as their early 20’s. But no, lets not listen to the experts, we had this kid so we’re going to allow them to strong arm us into a permanent surgery before they can count to 100!! If you haven’t picked up on it yet, I think these “parents” need some drastic and thorough help. Somebody please step in, and don’t even get me started on the idiot doctors performing these surgeries. I can’t do it anymore, I gotta move on to a different topic.
Alright, more idiots! This time they happen to control the news, specifically CNN. Recently a controversial rape case was resolved. Yes all participants were underage. Yes alcohol was involved. And yes, just like in every other rape case, the perpetrators were portrayed as the victims. Wait… what was that last one? Did I just say the perpetrators (plural) were the victims? Umm… hold on a second. Alright let’s rewind a bit. This case happened in Steubenville, God only knows what state. Ok; party… check, alcohol… check, members of the opposite sex… check, ridiculous media reaction to a conviction of two RAPISTS!!… check. These upstanding gentleman athletes who had never been in trouble with the law before not only managed to take advantage of a passed out female, they managed to urinate on her, photograph her, and distribute said photographs while making a major news network believe that they were the ones being taken advantage of. Oh my goodness. I am already so sick of idiots but alas, I shall trudge on.
Now, onto a more upbeat class of morons. I don’t for the life of me remember where or when this particular story took place but I heard it on the radio so it must be true, right? Ok, middle class neighborhood, middle of the day. No one’s home, the kids are at school and mommy and daddy are off to work making the moolah. Sounds like a prime target for thievery. So, two or three would be robbers roll up on a particularly ripe looking house and set out on their nefarious ways. Naturally, they leave the keys in the car for a quick getaway. Unfortunately the crooks chose the noon hour to carry out their crime. The same noon hour which lends the “victims” an hour to go home and enjoy a meal together. Well, upon arrival the owners of the home discover some ruffians ravaging through their house and an unlocked getaway car waiting patiently for their return. What to do? the couple wonders. Well finally they decide to take the keys and insist all their belongings are returned without harm and they will let the would-be criminals go. Upon discovering this dilemma, the thieves decide that their impromptu captors have underestimated them. So what do they do? I’m sure all of you are wondering. The criminals CALL THE COPS!! Talk about getting your just desserts. Part of me wishes that stupidity of this magnitude didn’t exist but at the same time I am so SO HAPPY that I can see such wonderful examples of extraordinary deficits of intelligence. It truly does make my day.
Alright well now that I’ve thoroughly delved into the deepest reaches of human stupidity I feel like I have successfully put together yet another regular entry. For those of you who are curious about the increase in adolescent sex change surgeries here is where I got the bulk of my material: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57381241/sex-change-treatment-for-kids-on-the-rise/. If anyone is wondering about the rape case here is the link for that also: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-57574728-504083/steubenville-rape-trial-verdict-judge-finds-both-teens-guilty-of-raping-16-year-old-girl/ Yes I know CBS is getting a lot of love from me this week but it wasn’t intentional. Unfortunately I don’t have a link for the idiot robbers but I think I covered that well enough. Thanks again to everyone who found time in their busy schedules to give my page a view. I greatly appreciate it. Happy Birthday Cleppe!! Love you dude!!!!
