I'm Confused

Today's port could be considered political and/or controversial in nature.

It really isn't, but I allude to topics that some people might find political and/or controversial if they had nothing better to do with their time than try and start shit over things that aren't actually political and/or controversial.

Thus, I present to you a warning: if this does not seem like your cup of tea, feel free to leave and come back tomorrow. You could pretend I wrote something about retarded Dark Knights and the feeding of said retarded Dark Knights to Jormy.

Oh, that Jormy.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Okay, if you're reading this, then you've decided to take the red pill and see how far down the rabbit hole really goes.

Not really, but it means you're willing to not bitch in the comments.

I'm serious. This is a legally binding agreement that should you try and start some political shit in the comments, you are willing to have your ass kicked.

Do I need to go put my ass kicking shoes on?


All right.


Natalie Portman is retarded.

I don't mean that in the cute "oh, she does something slightly inane so I'll call her retarded" way I may ascribe to other people. This girl is full on, reduced mental ability, makes no goddamned sense retarded.

That's the bad kind of retarded.

That's the kind of retarded that makes [GM]Dave very, very angry.

It also makes him write blog posts with an excessive usage of the word "retarded."

And talk in the third person.

Now, what could make me say something like that about Ms. Portman? Surely, someone so freaking hot couldn't possibly be THAT retarded.

Yeah, they can.

They really, REALLY can.

And I'm not even talking about the new trilogy.

No, Ms. Portman decided to throw down about eating meat. Apparently, she is something of a vegetarian (perhaps related to her having the IQ of a carrot) and decided the best way to handle her feelings about eating meat was to pick a fight over it.

Don't get me wrong. I've got nothing against vegetarians. By all means, you feel free to eat whatever the hell you want.

Broccoli? Sure. Why the hell not?

Just don't start shit with us about eating meat.

Those are your opinions. You are welcome to them.

You are also welcome to keep them to your freaking self.

And how did Ms. Portman pick a fight? Did she talk about the health benefits of vegetarianism versus meatitarianism?

No, she compared eating meat to rape.

Yes, rape.

Yeah. I'm not sure exactly how her parents tried to teach her how to eat meat, but I'm sure a social worker should look into that.

This... Well, this type of hyperbole would be reason enough to call her retarded. Frankly, I think it very clearly makes my case.

But that's not what I'm talking about.

Hyperbole doesn't bother me too much. I've kind of gotten used to stupid people saying things that border on monumentally idiotic.

Part of the job. You have no idea how many people tell me that they will tear SE to the ground if I ban them.

No, hyperbole doesn't bother me.

Contradictions do.

So, Ms. Portman thinks that eating meat is morally wrong. She thinks it is terrible and disgusting and even goes so far as to compare it to rape.

Do you know what she's oddly okay with? Actual rape.

It seems Natalie Portman is one of the many actors and celebrities that have come out in support of Roman Polanski, a man convicted of raping a child.

Yes, I said "in support of".


What's she really trying to say? Eating meat is like rape, but rape is okay?

Is she actually encouraging eating meat in possibly the worst method ever conceived?

I don't expect crazy people to not say crazy things. They are, after all, crazy. It kind of comes with the job.

The one thing I do expect is a certain consistency to the crazy.

If you're screaming crazy shit all over the place, you should at least make sure that what you're yelling actually works together.

Two wrong don't make a right, but two crazies sure can make a retarded.

"Eating meat is like rape, but rape is okay?"

I'm just glad that I wasn't drinking anything when I read this. Otherwise, I'd need a new keyboard.

At 8:44 PM, Blogger Sean said...

That's pretty retarded.
Is there anyone who's called her out on this contradiction yet?

At 8:58 PM, Blogger Saifer said...

What would V say about this?

Is it me or is more of these people graduating from Harvard, Yale, and MIT showing some of the most retarded stuff in the news. It's like "Hey, they're being totally narrow minded and biased, but they got a degree from Harvard so they must know what they're talking about."

Anyways, her arguement is easily defreated. She's basically calling any Omnivore/Carnivore a rapist when the whole premise of the food chain is to maintain a healthy wildlife population and ecosystem. If I'm also not mistaken many farmers have difficulty dealing with wildlife overpopulation such as deer and wild pigs eating crops and produce.

But she's hot so I'd still bone her. Though she'd prolly consider it rape.

At 10:18 PM, Blogger Strings said...

Y'all are missing the point. Connect the dots:

eating meat = rape (which most would say is bad)

being a hollyweird bigwig = ok to commit rape

being a Hollyweird bigwig = ok to eat meat

She's just saying the rest of us peons should be vegan

You know, we have the teeth we have so we can eat meat....nuff said

At 4:21 AM, Blogger Rwn said...

... alright i may or may not have just read every single post in a two night marathon...

and on topic. this bitch is bat shit crazy. simple as that

At 10:29 AM, Blogger zerombr said...

ugh...just ugh.

everyone just has to make themselves known when they're not doing anything, so they say these stupid ass things. I swear, we're better off without em all (celebrities that is)

At 1:20 PM, Blogger Paul said...

Mr. The [GM] Dave, I'm ashamed of you. It's been over an hour, and you haven't mailed her a ham sandwich. I just don't know if I can handle this relationship after your inaction.

At 3:02 PM, Blogger Cidolfas said...

@Strings: So wait... is it okay to eat a Hollywood bigwig?

At 5:49 PM, Blogger Rwn said...

and on another note. after reading this i decided to give FFXI a try... yea uhm it fucking fails. honestly it's worse than WoW is and WoW is now the second worst MMORPG i have ever played.

it wouldn't be so bad if the controls didn't seem like they were made by a dyslexic 12 year old with ADHD. massive fail of a game. maybe the next one will have better controls.

At 12:34 AM, Blogger Dyamalos said...

She's almost as retarded as Rwn here!

Opinions are nice and all, but you not only post this on a blog written by a guy that Plays and WORKS FFXI, and read by FFXI players, but you also posted your comment about FFXI on a post that had NOTHING to do with FFXI.

Read: Epic fail.

At 1:23 AM, Blogger Katherine said...

Hmmm. No, I don't think she actually said that or meant that by what she said. She made a bad simile perhaps, and a crude one, but that's being distorted by those that report on her and want to have something to report about.

Sorry - though, I agree with you: politics suck.

At 4:54 AM, Blogger Rwn said...


i didn't say i didn't find the entire blog interesting. in fact i do which is why i read it.

and as for posting here... hmmmmm i wonder why that could be... well... oh fucking yea it's the most recent post you god damned fucking halfwit. what purpose would it serve to go and post it on one midway through the blog?

and as i said if the game's control system wasn't the worst... in the history of gaming ever it wouldn't be that bad of a game.

At 8:21 AM, Blogger chris said...

Actually you didn't bother to learn the controls. The game is macro driven and once you set the controls up to your system they work perfectly. The compact setting on the laptop gives you the most efficient set up but even the controllers are easy to use. The control scheme is not "horrible" but rather "different" than what you expected. I can access EVERY single thing I need without moving my wrists from their resting positions. I can hardly say the same for most MMO's.

At 9:08 AM, Blogger Subaru Tsukasa said...

I can understand the sentiment about FFXI, perhaps if it were as easy as WoW I'd put up with the lesser graphics and whatnot. FFXIV looks promising, though. I might even be willing to get a new computer for it.

As for the topic at hand...


At 10:49 AM, Blogger Mil'bereth said...

Psh, what's wrong with rape?

That's like how you say hello in Japan.

At 1:13 AM, Blogger Hala said...

I don't know...I think this is a lot of fuss over nothing. How many of you read what she actually said? Here it is: "He posits that consideration…which has more to do with being polite to your tablemates than sticking to your own ideals, would be absurd if applied to any other belief (e.g., I don't believe in rape, but if that's what it takes to please my dinner hosts, then so be it)." She never actually said "eating meat is like rape," and she certainly never attacked meat eaters in this quote, she just made a really unfortunate choice of words. Which happens to us all. She seems to me like a pretty smart girl (apart from supporting Roman Polanski) who just had a brain fart.

You think a lion cares about what his dinner thinks?

Nature gave us fangs for a reason.

At 7:20 AM, Blogger Seregon said...

The way I read those two articles, she doesn't support either rape or Roman Polanski, but rather object to the way in which he was arrested (in an open film festival in a neutral country), which I can understand to a certain degree.

Though there clearly is a big difference between creating a controversial film the government wants to arrested for and rape..

At 10:47 AM, Blogger Adam said...

Hmm, I read that while eating a rather tasty steak.

I didn't know rape could be so tasty.

At 1:20 PM, Blogger Daniel said...

@ Dyamalos

Rwn posted it here because, yes, it is the most recent post. That means people will read the comments, and he wants attention while he cries.


... Just go away dude...


Dude, I would have called her retarded a long ass time ago.

And what's with all the typos? Do your typing skills take a penalty when you are angry?

At 7:40 PM, Blogger Jason said...

He loses 1 point of typing cohesion
for every 2 of rage.

At 8:00 AM, Blogger Hylian said...

Well, we've got an interesting visitor tonight. It would seem Rwn is trying his hand at the style of maddox, the angry video game nerd, and angry thread flamer. It's the sincerest form of flattery I hear... whatever.

Actually, if it weren't for meat, we wouldn't have evolved as a human race. The need for protein allowed us evolution-wise to grow smarter. most herbivore animals would get really big to support the protein you get from plants (think hippos, elephants, rhinos, cows...). it was due to our switch to meat that we weren't specifically gatherers... we evolved the need to hunt, which broadened our minds in ways to obtain food. protein also provided more energy, which gave room for our brains to grow.

what that means in non-science-geek is natalie portman supports de-evolution!

and rape.

and... uh, wait, is it meat she then supports or... ah wait, gotta look at the big picture. she supports: having an opinion and ignorantly shoving it down our throats because she thinks she has the right to tell us how to live our lives.

nat, i don't care how much money you have, and i don't care that you're a celebrity. shut up. get outta my damn kitchen!
