    ... this un-Photoshopped, sloppy joe, keepin' it real campaign? People want to see beauty. Men and women. They do. We want poetry, not the kitchen sink. P.S. You know what America has plenty of and could do with a lot less of? SELF-ESTEEM. We were a lot smarter, cooler people when we all walked around seething in a low-boiling stew of self-hate.

    Dude has never written anything of any note. He literally writes technical manuals about other writers. He has no creative ability at all. He is scared shitless to take me on in a creative writing challenge for fear I will destroy him like I did his buddy the naked critic.

    how come nobody is complaining about the Hotwire "do your thing girl" commercials that encourage women to have one night stands?

    I think that's an off-shoot ideology of the white privilege/heteronormativity crowd . . . millennial hipsters working at starbucks, living in yurts and having one night stands.

    if ashley madison runs a commercial for horny husbands on tv, the PC groups will be up in arms, but if Hotw*re suggests horny housewives have one night stands, nobody notices.

    I don't really understand the term "millennial." A true millennial can't be older than 15 years old.

    well nobody notices because nothing will come of it. Horny housewives only need to open their trailer window and give Joe Dirt a holler' to get laid.
