why do men

every time
a woman's opinion is near

My fish tacos last night came with a side of tartar sauce.

Why?

You'd never go up to someone you didn't know on the street and say something like "My word, your secondary sexual characteristics are esthetically pleasing!" because it would be rude AF and make you sound stupid.

So why do you think "Hey baby, nice tits!" is any different?

Is there a #nonbinary equivalent for sir/ma'am? Don't say "comrade"; I'm looking for something that implies a little positive-politeness effort.

@Laurelai Australia also has concentration camps. That is even less often spoken about maybe because people view America as the "center of the western world", tbh I wouldn't be surprised if all the allies of the US have them.

At least I can run at 12mph (19.3 kph) for a full minute at a 3% grade. Can't seem to crack that

It occurs to me that some of you young folk have always lived in this world of bountiful memes. New memes every day, big memes, small memes, niche memes, memes that make their way to the heart of the zeitgeist.

It wasn't always like that.

In my day we had only one meme.

We made that meme into an anthem. A flag. An identity.

All our base belonged to it.

"Don't talk to me about the greater good, sunshine. I'm the Archangel fucking Gabriel!"

Dear Faceplant,

I don’t hate your algorithms except when “People you may know” comes up with a woman who’s best friends with someone I haven’t spoken to in several years for good reason and who, AFAIK, has me blocked. Most of these suggestions amuse me, but this one just brings up a whole lot of bad memories.

No love,

Me.

There's really not enough caffeine today.

And I've been decaf for a few years
