So, just had an interesting conversation about the farce that is Christmas with [livejournal.com profile] yahrlan on Msn. She had this to say: I was SO tempted to say 'Merry Triumph of the Eternal Sun" to people.

Which made me think of a few alternate ways I'm going to respond to people next year. Such as:

Happy JESUS WASN'T FUCKING BORN TODAY day.

Happy FAT WHITE-BEARDED MAN IS TOTALLY NOT A PAGAN GOD, FOR REALS YO day.

And my personal favorite:

Happy NO FUCKING PINE TREES IN ISRAEL, YOU DUMB MOTHER FUCKERS day.

To which she replied: those trees in your houses totally aren't fertility symbols or anything.

There's a reason we consider ourselves siblings. ^_^

My Facebook account and PayPal account just got hacked on the same day. I am like an inch from crying, seriously. Fuck my life. Though I don't know how it could be possible, I can't help thinking there's a connection somewhere.

If you are on Facebook and get a video link from me in the chat window DO NOT open it.

I have called PayPal and they've opened an investigation, should get back to me in a week. Only two false charges started, and one was stopped before it was completed. Thankfully, at the moment, I'm only out 9.99, and they're going to try and find who did it.

Say it with me folks: Fuck. My. Life.

Sometimes I just want to listen to my iPod, which makes it especially irksome that it has mysteriously gone missing. -_-

I came across a link the other day to a series of stories about a female-to-male transsexual who liked men. I don't know why, but that whole concept blew my mind. A gay male transsexual. It was one of those things that hadn't quite occurred to me before. Is it because of some lingering threads of my formerly religious brainwashing? I mean, a transsexual is one who is born in the wrong body. So to make things "right" he/she transforms to the other sex's body. It's an effort to put things the way they should be. Do I still retain so much backlogged religion that I parse "the way things should be" as automatically girl-on-boy?

It's a depressing thought, and I'm afraid of what truth it might contain. Religion is a culture, and like all culture it makes up parts of you no matter how much you might want otherwise. I say things like "there is no right, only what we like" all the time, but there are still little secret parts of me that don't quite believe it. Will it always be that way?

I severely hope not. But how does one completely wash the unwanted aspects of a "former" culture away? One can't. Even by immersing oneself in a new culture, there will still be those perceptions and defaults that remain of the former.

I was just browsing through Dan Savage's blog, and this particularly repugnant poster basically said that gay people should stop bitching about discrimination because being gay was a choice, unlike being black or being Jewish.

What. The. Fuck?

First, being gay is absolutely not a choice, and second? Last time I checked, Judaism was not a race, it was a religion and religion is completely, 100% a choice.
