Flux ~ Passion

If this is a repeat, I apologize.

Besides a few major exceptions (strength, genitalia, testosterone levels, etc.) men and women aren't that different. Unfortunately, because of these exceptions, women get to live in a world where we fear for our lives but are armed only with words to protect ourselves and warn one another.
“Why are you afraid of women?” I asked a group of men.
“We’re afraid they’ll laugh at us,” replied the men.
“Why are you afraid of men?” I asked a group of women.
“We’re afraid they’ll kill us,” replied the women.

Anti-feminists, please join in. I'm stirring the pot today.

Texts from Predator Drone

I see this has come up, but maybe it's worth hitting again.

We had a nice texting meme about Hillary, and now the texting joke has gone dark and macabre: Texts from Drone.

One commentator notes:

[Spoiler (click to open)]I know, I know. It’s dark satire intended to hold a mirror up to our society. You’re laughing, sure, but you know deep down that you’re giving us some powerful, powerful stuff that’s really going to make us think twice about the role we’ve all played as citizens of this democracy, about how we’re all lying to ourselves, and about how libertarians are the only ones who really care about the suffering of others.

But you know what it really is? It’s pictures of injured children with jokes attached to it.
