They are what they eat  
Laughing at people for being vegetarians is like laughing at people for being gay when it is not like laughing at people for needing mobility devices. But of course oppressed groups are no better than we are. There are, for instance, the PETAmanes, who put up ads showing Black people as no better than animals and, when criticized, indignantly reply that they also think white people are no better than animals. (I’m willing to concede that they’re right about themselves.) And now we have the butthole wars.

Thanx to bart_calendar

What bothers me about this article is that I have absolutely no idea whether it is for real or if it is a satiric takeoff on Yelp (or something else entirely - some elaborate new form of hate speech?).

I realize that I am out of the loop on many things, but I used to at least be able to tell which things were supposed to be jokes and which ones weren't. *sigh*

Poe's Law strikes again. Don't feel bad; it strikes us all these days - surreal times we're living in.

I think this is serious, though - or, at least as serious as such a tempest in a teapot can ever be. That's the beauty of social media: people can now enjoy the same kind of pig-headed passive-aggressive fights over nothing with total strangers, that they used to only be able to have with their relatives, room-mates and such.

I was unfamiliar with Poe's Law - thanks! It's perfect. I might get it tattooed on my forehead.
