Sturgeon's law and the battle of the sexes
delirium happy
One thing that I swear I will never understand is the whole battle of the sexes thing. I see people saying "boys suck", or "girls suck" (actually, mostly it's just "boys suck" for some reason; I probably just hang around too many gay men or something). But anyway, I see people saying things like that, and I just don't understand it. It's not that I disagree with them, it's just that they're missing the point. Certainly, 90% of boys do suck. This is because 90% of everything sucks. Including 90% of girls. Yet again, sturgeon's law saves the day. To me, it just seems ludicrously over-specific. It's something like saying "all women have heads". Well yes they do, but it's hardly a trait that's unique to women.

I propose that the battle of the sexes be declared a stalemate.

I find that a lower percentage of queer people suck than straight people. Then again, my sample may be skewed.

I would say the other way around, but then all my politics, activism and organising has been amongst queer people, and nothing but nothing brings out the suck more than that.

One word: Football.

See I've avoided football, all I see it bringing out is flags on cars.

Now alcohol, that brings out suck, if I happen to be out walking at 11:30pm on a Friday anyway, or outside nightclubs late at night. That's more to-be-avoided scariness though, the politics suck is all the more sucky because it sucks you in... or stalks you.
