8-10 230am howdy. i have a comic page -almost- done but i hurt my back and am presently using that as an excuse for not having it ready on 8-9 even though I did not actually create this problem until around 1 am, unless we pretend that I live in alaska. And if pretending I live in alaska gives me less anxiety about going to bed before finishing a job for the sake of my health, why do I still feel compelled to announce this?
————————


this ad is making several key misconceptions about my mental state. first of all, that if I have specific favorite misheard lyrics, there are enough of them that I classify them by topic type, and that there enough in the food category alone that I can choose 8 standouts without exhausting my supply, and that a marketing company knows which ones those are. and then also that I would like to watch sock puppets — at all, but especially to act out misheard food lyrics, when whoever designed the advertisement isn’t even that into it, choosing instead to fixate on the graphical possibilities of the number 8.

which reminds me:


gosh FINALLY. Dial For Men. No, not a 1970s gay porn film, but Dial SOAP to be USED by men. For the first time in history, it’s gonna start raining men may bathe themselves.

For comparison, here is what regular, apparently woman-only dial looks like.
beets since when is SOAP not masculine enough? Is this marketing reacting to a demand, or trying to make men self-conscious about not having a manly enough soap?


gosh even the number 8 needs to be harder and manner. How long before Dial for MEN invades regular Dial’s territory citing an ancestral claim to the power berries?

I am not surprised at all that there are more transvestites than ever. The harder you push this “gender must permeate every object you own” agenda, the more people like me will turn away from it. And the more normal men will become insane and convinced there is a “war on men” just because the world is less unilaterally made for them. And then push more products like this, and they will keep getting oafier. With that said, I won’t feel inclined to buy Zest Tranny Clean soap once that starts showing up, because it would have the same message: you are defined by the non-personality-related products you buy. The companies who make these aren’t giving you anything. They are looking for sneaky ways to get money out of you in perpetuity, and to shut out their competitors who don’t yet offer man-only soap

It is true that there are hard biological differences between women and men, and perhaps different soaps are in order, although I always understood that was what dodderant was for, and I already do not feel comfortable buying that unless I am unaccompanied and in a store which allows self-service scanning. Already every product marketed at children has a gender-coded character or object on the package, which increasingly is impossible to avoid unless you buy off-brand stuff that status-conscious kids will still pick on you for owning, but at least adults are still free to have neutrally aligned noodles out of a can. Maybe some day there will be his and hers water and oxygen and there will be an indicator on your forehead if you try to use the wrong one without asking the government’s permission first.


I was in Washington DC this year during what apparently was “Capital Pride Weekend.” Outside of New York City, I cannot think of any place with less of a pride deficiency. Specifically it means non-caucasian non-heterosexual non-male pride, but it uses the gay pride colors, but we can’t say gay pride because that offends trans people who think they aren’t gay and you still can’t change your race because that’s racist and even if you’re trans everybody knows you are trans and still identifies you with what you were born as and on and on and we pretend this isn’t fascism garishly disguised as freedom. Anyway people who formerly were not comfortable are supposed to be proud of themselves, even though chief executive also in that capital doesn’t actually believe in this. And the ones who run Connecticut sure do not, either, lest we incite the gods to send a cursed storm of blood over our crops.

You get a F or an M that is assigned to you and you cannot have the other unless you pay thousands of dollars to have your body destroyed, and you DEFINITELY cannot have neither. This is absolutely crucial to you being able to drive a car or buy liquor (requiring the same card for both was a great idea). And apparently now to washing yourself too. Maybe someday people will be proud of themselves just for taking a shower. Like a small child would be, and perhaps then they will share their princess/truck-branded soup with the rest of us.
They will take pity on us knowing we came from a culture which temporarily thought this was acceptable. This conclusion makes no sense but I like that it tied together. Therefore I win.

Or somebody other than the custodian does.

    This day has already come! I was proud of myself for it this morning :)

    The gender this is odd though. I have a furry friend who is a Trans Woman and I sometimes accidently refer to her as “him” which is really bad. It’s a surprisingly tough thing to get used to.

    Yes, I noticed you continued to call me he and guy and furry after I indicated I did not like that. But I do not think it is a hate crime like some oppressive sorts seem to intensely wish were the case.

    I wish not to be judgemental about showers, either, since I hate being wet and naked, and consequently avoid it more than fictional television people would indicate is acceptable.

    I’m sorry! I think I forgot.

    I went back to read your “About” page and your “Gender-indecisive being” page to find the right words to be used, but I couldn’t find it after a few minutes of looking.

    What do you prefer to be called? Should I call you merely Frimpinheap?

    It is silly! I never completely believe that I am entitled to it.
    “It” “that” “what” or “they” suits me, thank you. Or avoiding them all and just using names, like I tend to, also works. I thought for certain I must have said as much on the page, but admittedly I have not looked at it in a while.

    By the way, is there any particular genre to which you ascribe your art? Or is it just your art?

    I draw a variety of things. The similarity is that they are silly, I suppose. I lack the technical skill and particular state of mind to pull off serious art.

    Why do people have so much pride? If anything people should have less pride! You’re different? Well too bad, you should feel ashamed just like everyone else! Actually, feeling indifferent would probably be better, but as long as it isn’t more pride.

    I sexually identify as a non-binary entity-fluid mono-gendered toothpaste. Can I have my own pride day celebrating my bravery? But I think I may offend non-toothpastes, so there is a dilemma.

    On a serious note, above poster is right. Pride leads to accepting only oneself and rejecting everything else, contrary to what freedom of speech is about. It also implies that there is an institutional hatred for whatever they are proud about. But really, they’re trying to cast indifference as hatred and roll with that. America’s on a culture of intense antagonism and victimhood to homogenize the nation into acceptance of only their ideas and burn the heretics. They don’t realize decency, humbleness and respect go a long way for a civilized society.

    this is the first time this website made me cry instead of laugh. once in a while there was a frown, but this is new.

    Frimpinheap sez:

    Crying in a bad way? Based on what? Because of my actions or my summarization of others’ actions? I could guess, but without any context that would be pointless. But it is not my goal to be hateful or unreasonable. I want to be clear in my meanings, and for other people to stand up for themselves in a sincere and meaningful fashion.
