To those not living here, I would like to apologise on behalf of our politicians
. I am embarrassed for them and for my country. Everyone else seems to be, too
There's been a bit of talk around the Internets about George Sodini
these last couple of weeks. For those who don't know, he was the guy who went into a gym with a gun on August 4th, killed 3 people and then himself. Turns out he hadn't had sex for a very long time, was really unhappy about this and this was his rationalisation for killing a bunch of people. He said that it didn't matter what he did, he couldn't get a second date, and that women just didn't like him. I'm guessing this was because he was a sociopath - not all sociopaths are charming, some are just creepy - and that the women he dated either sensed his desperation and ran for the hills from TEH NEEDY or they were creeped out by him and ran for the hills from TEH CREEPY. Yes, it's sad. I agree with Dan Savage
that this was an avoidable situation. He could have used sex workers to get laid, and maybe this would have taken the edge off his frustration. Who knows? We never will because he didn't do it. Instead he went down the Pickup Artist path.( Collapse )
Thank you to the guys in my life for being smart enough to realise that trying to tell women what they will watch on media will not make them fall all over themselves to suck your cock.
