    I didn't want to end up ranting... but this also gets to me. As I'm sure it should, but the prouder they are, while absolutely believing they're not only awesome, but genuinely good/virtuous, decent or even excellent human beings just for being heterosexual, cisgender males and at times "American" (While I've seen racism in New York City, I don't see it as much as homophobia, transphobia, sexism and misogyny, but it's also out there as it would be anywhere else.) makes it drive me up the wall even more.

    And unsurprisingly, they're just as insufferable in every other facet of life.

    Yesterday while walking my dogs on their double leash, I had a borderline heart attack. I was picking up one of the dogs shits, while I could feel them trying to play on the leash behind me. Then the leash was much lighter. I look back and my dog Greg Poochiato (yes, after Greg from Dillinger Escape Plan) is hauling ass with his stubby legs away from me. I threw the shit bag towards the trash can and tried to run him near our little dog park at our apartments. He then decided to just take off sprinting across the busy street. I went after him and eventually wrangled him and got him home. During this whole time, my wife was doing the dishes and her phone was on silent with no vibrate. I was so furious. It's wild because my sister in laws dog took off and went missing literally two days ago, and was found the next day. I honestly can't imagine the anxiety I would feel if either of my dogs went missing.

    we go for months of no good shows & then all the sudden everything is the same week. 2 of my favorite bands in the world (non NIN) are playing in seattle back to back nights. wilco & drive-by truckers. DBT is playing a club on 3/18 & Wilco is playing same night at a theater. fortunately Wilco are doing 2 nights. pure dumb luck i got night 2 on a presale before i knew about the DBT show. whew!

    Thank you! Rob Sheridan actually texted Greg about my dog. When I brought it up to Greg after a TBQ show last year, he agrees they should meet. Hopefully TBQ or Killer Be Killed swings by Denver sometime soon!

    Got to stand in the cold outside Lowe's this morning. Luckily the doors opened up about 5 minutes after the lady behind me said "You know the only reason they're open on the holidays is because of those foreigners, they just don't have the same values as us."

    No, it couldn't have anything to do with corporate overlords or the idiotic Americans who think that "well as long as it isn't my family who works on Thanksgiving".

    When someone's an idiot, I like telling them to go fuck themselves.

    It pisses me off that this is becoming frowned upon these days.

    Probably because it isn’t being requested and carried out the correct way these politically correct days.

    If you want something done, it has to be done right:

    ...she says, standing in line at a hardware store at the ass crack of dawn the day after Thanksgiving for no reason. "Foreigners". Shut the fuck up, moron.

    My brother is the manager of the receiving department at a Home Depot in the Detroit suburbs. He told me that Black Friday is the 3rd largest retail holiday for them, bringing in a minimum of $350,000.00 in sales for his store on that one day.

    This fake Trump "War on Thanksgiving" has been trending, and it pisses me off that people believe that bullshit. There's never been any such thing, nobody here stopped calling it Thanksgiving (although retailers and TV hosts often refer to it as "Turkey Day"). Pisses me off. What a dick.

    My husband was a Federal Air Traffic Controller for 36 years, and he had to work on Thanksgiving EVERY ONE OF THOSE 36 YEARS.

    Ordered a NIN hoodie from merchbar for 36+shipping on black friday. came to 44.99 (for some reason I was getting charged tax by nin.com, so I went with the slightly cheaper option...)

    Dumbest thing I've ever done.

    9 dollar shipping, after 3 days of no tracking I sent an email.
    "you have to wait 6 days for us to process, we will ship on the 3rd and you will get confirmation, tracking, etc."

    LOL WHAT?

    It's 1 (one) hoodie. I get it's the holiday season, but they're an online warehouse. It's a week now and I've gotten nothing.

    They usually take a full 24 hours to respond.
    Still hadn't gotten a confirmation by 8pm today.
    Wrote an email asking for a refund, saying had I ordered from the awesome band directly it would BE HERE BY NOW.
    They usually wait 48 hours to respond to customers. That's how long I waited for their first response telling me to wait a week for the item to ship.
    I received a near instant response of approval of a refund being processed while I was writing the dispute with my financial institution on my other monitor.

    Lol.

    Went to go buy the same hoodie from nin.com just now, and it's back to 45 before shipping.

    I just wanted a stupid pullover.

    I'll just stay skinny and cold. Fuck it.

    online retailers are required to charge tax; this did not used to be the case but has been for the last year or two.

    I've noticed it sometimes, I just figured, hey, save $2 or whatever, nin is getting paid either way.

    I regret everything. Every pullover that I like is back to full price.

    I'll never go through merchbar again.

    People who define their entire life by their gender identity and give everyone around them grief for accidental pronoun misuse, but exclusively use the pronoun 'he' for any animal and refer to almost everything, animate or inanimate as 'boi'.

    pisses me off that people can't wrap their heads around how simple but meaningful it is to use the correct pronouns.

    animals can't declare their gender identity and the meme culture in which we live has dictated "boi" as a gender-neutral term of affection for cute animals. also, most people are quick to correct themselves when someone points out that the animal is, in fact, not male.

    people (like me) who have chosen to use pronouns that differ from those foisted upon them at birth ask only for the respect of those around them in the language they use. if someone introduced themselves as "michael" would you call them "mike" or "michael"? you would call them michael because it is a sign of respect and that's what they want to be called. so if i say i would like people to use "they/them/theirs" pronouns to refer to me, it is disrespectful to not make the very small amount of effort required to use those pronouns. and if i correct someone, it's not out of spite for those people, but at the discomfort it causes me that others do not see me in the way i see myself; at the microaggressions of disrespect that people in the trans/non-binary/genderqueer community have to endure every day.

    trans kids are bullied constantly by their peers in certain environments. there is a huge issue with discrimination in workplaces against gender-non-conforming folks. black trans women are at the highest risk of being murdered in this country. so i think it's a pretty small ask for people to use the correct pronouns for those with whom they are communicating.

    Acceptance, patience, and most importantly, the benefit of the doubt are aspects that are best exercised on both sides in these circumstances.

    i agree completely. the problem is often that those who misgender folks (unintentionally) tend to re-focus the situation on themselves, i.e. "i'm trying! don't get mad at me!" instead of the more sympathetic "sorry that i made you uncomfortable."

    I’d have gladly lived my entire working life disguised as a male if at all possible to avoid the job and wage discrimination (and sexual harassment).

    Hi. I know this is entirely a hypothetical for you, but I have actually lived that. I lived the first 34 years of my life pretending to be a male. It almost killed me. Please take many fucking seats before you speak on lived experiences you have never had.

    In erasing the word “female” from products, we are gradually erasing female identity.
    No, we're not. Being more inclusive is not erasing you. Trans men and non-binary people need menstrual products, too. You can take this TERF talking point and shove it.

    I know most of ETS won't get this. And I don't mean that as a knock on you all. But there are dog whistles in here. Big ones. Big, bigoted dog whistles. As a trans woman who has spent years and years dealing with bigots, I can tell you, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Cat Mom is one. You're a TERF. Flat out. Fuck you and your bigotry.

    And if anyone wonders why I am being so hostile toward someone who "just has a differing opinion" or thinks that she is making a civil argument while I am going off the rails, then all I can ask you to do is trust me when I say I've seen this before. A lot. I have no patience for bigotry. I have no patience for hashing it out. I've seen this over and over and over again. I know all the dog whistles. I'm not doing this. I'm not debating my existence with anyone.
