‘Heterosexual couple win right to civil partnership’…

???

I thought heterosexuals couples already had the right?

The right to marriage. This couple wanted a “civil partnership” because it’s a more “modern construct”, while marriage has a history with women being given as property, among other reasons for it being seemingly antiquated. Apparently the current law didn’t extend “civil partnerships” to heterosexual couples.

You would have thought when they gave civl partnerships to homosexuals couples, they would have be smart enough to include heterosexual couples as well.

IIRC, the whole point was for it to be a diet marriage, a sort of compromise to let gays be “married” without letting them get married. After gays were allowed marriage proper, there was not really too much of a point for them to exist, though now that’s changing due to the attitude mentioned above of marriage as patriarchial and/or antiquated.

Off the top of my head, here’s a list of things my parents have told me is satanic over the years (some of which they eventually reneged on).
-Pokémon
-Harry Potter
-D&D
-All non-conservative-protestant-evangelical-Christian religions
-Darwin’s theories, but only some of them
-“emogoth” music
-any music with bad words
-“the world”
-Monster energy drink
-most R-rated movies
-Gays (whoops)
-Anime (because the eyes are dark and creepy-lookin’)
-Foreign policy that isn’t neocon zionism
-“Imperfect” Jews (aka every Jew other than Jews for Jesus)

Something else I just remembered: when I was a little kid, my dad told me that I was never to use the word “awesome” unless I was referring specifically to God, as any other use of that word was basically blasphemy. He eventually relaxed on that, but it took several years.

Last movie seen
Time

I’m watching The Godfather.

I haven’t finished it yet. I will, though, I promise.

Technically it’s great. It’s pretty, it’s got good music, a good cast, there’s quite a bit going for it. But…

I don’t care.

I just don’t get this movie. I don’t understand why I’m supposed to care that x got shot or y killed z because I never cared about any of them. It all just feels empty, devoid of life, and I’m not sure I can make myself finish it.

And I know this is blasphemy, and it honestly hurts to say this because I want to love this movie as much as every other movie lover on the damn planet, but it just rings hollow for me.

I pray that someday I’ll rewatch it and see the masterpiece that everyone else sees, but right now… I got nothing.

So what am I, a stupid kid who doesn’t know a damn thing about film or art or anything, missing?

Comics. (Not the comedians)

The wedding was today…

Psych, bitch! Lmao, you thought they were actually getting married‽ All the hype, only to be unceremoniously spoiled by DC in a statement to the NY Times earlier this week before the issue even came out. They really shot themselves in the foot. I haven’t even been reading Batman, but I was planning to pick up this issue at least. But no.

THE GOOD

  • Dan Jurgens’ art
  • Jerry Ordway’s art
  • The nostalgic feeling said art left me

THE BAD

  • Too much navelgazing
  • Too little “oomph”

THE UGLY

  • Bendis’ little story didn’t pique my interest in his Man of Steel miniseries.

His Man of Steel miniseries is much better than that story would have you believe. However, some choices were made in that mini that I’m afraid you would hate, even if I don’t mind them myself, so perhaps it’s best you don’t pick it up, or at least wait for the trade.

Sounds like a little investigation’s in order. . . .

Anyway, all that aside, it’s a fun, super-iconic Oz

Jor-El?

What the non-literal literal fuck‽

Your investigation could lead to similar findings as this. . . .

EDIT: Not that that’s really Bendis’ fault, as Jurgens actually wrote that reveal in Action 980-something and spent a few issues with him before making him go away, but he returns in the new mini.

I’m going to leave out the sexy bits and focus on the nightmarish plot.

For some reason, a clandestine group of Hollywood higher-ups decided that certain movies—chosen arbitrarily—no longer existed. All copies were inexplicably purged from home collections in the middle of the night. I spent a night in a small hotel, and happened to have some of the movies that were banned with me, thus not at home to be destroyed. It was entirely coincidental, as I didn’t know about the purge.

I got a text from someone saying his house was on fire and he needed help, but I kept either passing out or being attacked and knocked out by my brother every time I would try to leave and help him. Eventually I made it to his place, but everything was fine by then.

I had to go back to the high school for some event, and while there, I started catching on to the grand movie conspiracy, because I noticed people disappearing or being murdered just for mentioning the movies that were banned. I went home and saw a disc explode. I figured pretty soon that I was going to die, but when someone arrived to kill me, I killed him first. Then I realized that society was meaningless, and began roaming the streets naked.

Then, it all went crazy.

Then?

Yes. I thought it was funny, and kind of disturbing, that a cop would be endorsed by such a person. I’m calling Mike the Cop an apologist for police brutality and excessive force. 'Cause that’s what motherfucker is, dude!

More proof that reasoned conversation is not to be had with you.

Take out the last sentence and it doesn’t seem any different than any other “reasoned” conversation.

?

Please elaborate.

He thinks the man is an apologist for brutality, because “Mike the Cop” seems to defend brutality (I didn’t watch the videos, I won’t comment any opinions on the matter). Sounds reasonable to me. The only part that makes it seem inflammatory or otherwise “unreasonable” is the “motherfucker” sentence.

Then, it all went crazy. I’m not even sure what was happening, or how to describe it. I almost died several times.

In the end, everything that happened was fake.
