Omg wine does make you feel like that EVERY TIME.
Bc I mean, you think “oh wine is so sophisticated fancy people drink this” and then you’re so sloppy drunk believing you can do anything being philosophical and shit whereas if it’s tequila, you just wanna take all the clothes off and dance!
This is me today all day.

Was I a little bit offended by some of the things he said? Yes, I was. At some points I was even disgusted…but that’s what makes him so successful in what he does. Comedy is offensive.
It’s poking fun at society and we are offended because we don’t want to believe that that’s how it is. We like to think we live in a beautiful, perfect world, but we don’t.
Being racist and sexist and homophobic and rape-defending is not how you make society better, apologist.
Seth MacFarlane is comedic? Who knew!
Comedy is comedy because it pokes fun at the powerful. When it tries to poke fun at the vulnerable and relies on damaging social systems (ie: sexism, racism etc) then it ceases to be comedy and becomes just pure gross bullshit that I am so fucking tired of hearing and am so fucking tired of being told to find funny. Don’t try to tell me it’s “just the world we live in” that a 9 year old girl can be sexualized TO THE ENTIRE WORLD by grown men in an international broadcast. Don’t try to tell me “it’s just the world we live in” that women can’t be respected as artists without there being references to the voyeuristic pleasure of their exposed breasts. Because you telling me “it’s just the world we live in” is you telling me to roll over and accept that treatment, and I fucking refuse.
You can take that “we think we live in a perfect world” apologist drivel and shove it where the sun don’t shine, OP. Because people like you and McFarlane and your attitudes are the reason the world doesn’t get better. You and your defense of “comedy” that props up horrific crime and inequality are the reason people have to fight tooth and nail for even a scrap of humanity in the eyes of society.
You are festering, pus-oozing lesion on the body of the world.

At this rate, Colbert might actually be held accountable in the near future for making transphobic jokes.
Go trigger warn some shit
That’s not transphobic, though. He’s making a point that because the LGBT agenda is “barreling forward at full-speed” that the B and T of LGBT is being left behind. Everyone is focusing on the L and the G that there are people who have no idea what the B and T even stand for. He’s not being transphobic or making a slight meant to make fun of or harm the bi and trans* community. He’s making a point that no one is focusing on them because they’re focusing on the lesbian and gay community.
Mother. Fucking. This.
People really need to realize that EVERYTHING Colbert says while on camera is satire.
Satire: The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the cotext of a play, novel, fiilm or other works.
He is not making a transphobic joke. He is not honestly saying that bi and trans people do not count/matter/exist. He is making humor in order to shed light on the fact that they are forgotten.
He is doing this to raise fucking awareness that there is more to LGBT than LG. He is raising a big flag that says “Hey, don’t forget about these guys. They count. They matter. Why aren’t you doing anything about them? Why aren’t they discussed?” He is not trying to say “They don’t matter.”
So please stop with the self righteous, self pity, “social justice” comments unless you know what you are talking about.
I do appreciate that Bisexual is matched with bacon. I rather enjoy bacon.
The sad thing is, I can actually imagine someone putting a trigger warning for cissexism and transphobia if they saw this.
if you seriously look at this guy and think he’s being completely serious about things like this,
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF FUCK PAY BETTER ATTENTION TO WHAT HE’S SAYING

John Green's tumblr: A Rant about E-Book Pricing →
So the final volume in Ally Condie’s MATCHED trilogy came out today. The last book, REACHED, is a great ending to an excellent series, and I think very highly of both the series and its author.
All the pre-publication reviews have been great, and the initial Amazon user reviews were awesome, too. But then this afternoon, I noticed the overall rating for the book had dropped from five stars to four entirely because of a single one-star review complaining that the e-book is more expensive than the hardcover on Amazon. (Edit: The review has been deleted.)
The hardcover of Reached retails for $17.99. The kindle edition retails for $10.99. As you will notice because you are great at math, THE E-BOOK IS FAR CHEAPER THAN THE HARDCOVER.
But Amazon discounts the price of the hardcover. They discount it so much, in fact, that they LOSE MONEY on every sale of the hardcover. Why do they do this? So that you will buy your hardcover books at Amazon instead of at a bookstore, and then you will get used to buying things from Amazon, and then you will start to buy far more profitable items that are less steeply discounted, like a Mini Tractor for Your Kid or Kim Kardashian’s Perfume or E-BOOKS. Publishers cannot control this discounting.
So an Amazon user writes a 1-star review of a book they haven’t read to blast the publisher/author for making the hardcover cheaper than the e-book. But in fact neither the author nor the publisher did any such thing. It is not Ally Condie’s fault that Amazon wants to lose money on her books.
Obviously, if you don’t believe that an e-book is worth $10.99, then you shouldn’t purchase one. But it’s wrong to see pricing as a simple competition between print and e-book.
In the end, what makes a book valuable is not the paper it’s printed on, but the thousands of hours of work by dozens of people who are dedicated to creating the best possible reading experience for you.
